Birmingham Botanical Gardens Senior Session | Anna Ferguson


July 27, 2022

Sweet Anna is a high school senior from Elkmont High School and traveled to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens for her Senior Session. I am always so honored when seniors choose to travel for me to shoot their senior portraits! Being from Athens, AL myself, I have spent all of my time shooting seniors in North Alabama at the start of my photography business. When my seniors are willing to travel and try new areas away from their hometowns for their portrait sessions, the outcome is always amazing! With more access to different locations around Birmingham, their portrait sessions are always super unique amongst their classmates’.

Anna is a cheerleader, so we made sure to use her poms in some of her portraits. Before a senior session, I make sure to find out what all my seniors love doing to see if there are any props we could incorporate to make their photos special to their high school experience! For Anna’s session, her red poms made for the perfect pop against the neutral background and her white dress! 

I am so happy that Anna chose to do most of her senior portraits at Birmingham Botanical Gardens.  Not only is it absolutely breathtaking in the Spring, but we are able to capture so much variety at this location – especially when you incorporate outfit changes! Anna had her Hair and Makeup professionally done before her senior portraits by the talented Bailee Schrimsher, which I always recommend doing! Having your hair and makeup is so much fun, and that extra bit of pampering really adds to the overall senior portrait experience!

Anna was a complete natural in front of the camera, and is just absolutely stunning! I am so excited to see what her next steps are, as I know she will do amazing things.
