Emily N.


June 5, 2020

When Emily reached out to me to plan her senior portrait session this spring, we were just at the cusp of COVID-19. Her senior portrait session was just one of many events to be rescheduled due to the outbreak of the virus! We had to delay the planning of her session until a few months later, but when we were finally able to get together in May I was excited about multiple reasons:

  • I was finally getting to be creative and work with clients again!
  • Emily is a beautiful girl inside-out– how could I not be ecstatic to capture her senior portraits!
  • She had decided on one of her session locations being the Delano Park Rose Garden in Decatur, Alabama and I knew the flowers would be bloomed out at the time of her session for absolutely jaw-dropping scenery!

Check out Emily’s portraits below!

I have always been a fan of the Wheeler Wildlife Preserve! We had the most beautiful, glowy light for Emily’s senior portrait session.
We made our way over to the Delano Park Rose Garden, where we were all pleasantly surprised to see that Emily’s top matched the rose buds perfectly!! It pays off when seniors follow the Senior Style Inspiration Pinterest board I share with them!
Finally, we showed off Emily’s red cap and gown against the neutral Old State Bank in downtown, Decatur. When I graduated, we wore pickle-green graduation gowns…I would have loved to be in this red!
