Senior Spokesmodel Feature | Gracey

Senior Spokesmodel

November 3, 2022

I am SO excited to share that Gracey is this month’s Senior Spokesmodel Feature! Gracey is a senior from Helena High School and we first met at our first ‘unofficial’ shoot last March. Since then, we have been able to hang out through the fun events for the Senior Spokesmodel Program, and then for her own senior session!

Gracey wanted a classic look for her senior portraits, so we shot at The Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Morris Avenue, Southside Baptist, and the big field area!  Gracey had fabulous outfits that gave her such a variety in her senior portraits.  When we shot at The Birmingham Botanical Gardens last March, there were different gardens in bloom than this time.  I love this location because there is always something beautiful in bloom. During this session, we spent most of our time in the Rose Garden and in the back garden.  It worked out perfectly, because Gracey’s outfit complemented the blue, butterfly bushes!

I offer my seniors two collections: a one-hour session and a two-hour session.  It’s very common for seniors to choose a 2-hour session during the fall, and then to book an additional 1-hour session in the spring. The fall sessions are focused on getting those amazing yearbook photos and documenting what all being a senior is about.  During the Spring, we can focus on your next steps after college (like decision day!) and cap and gown photos.  Senior year is such a special time in your life, so why not document everything if you can!

If you are an upcoming senior, I would LOVE for you to learn more and apply to be a part of the Senior Spokesmodel Program! We have SO much fun over the year, and document the changing seasons during your senior year.  Not only do you get photos, you will meet new people and gain friendships from other seniors around your area.  It’s an absolute blast! 

I’ve loved getting to know Gracey, and she is going to make the best Physician’s Assistant someday! It brings me such joy to have her as the Senior Spokesmodel Feature! I hope she will always look back on her senior year photos and cherish the memories forever.  

Here are some of my favorites from Gracey’s senior portraits!
