Chatfield Class of 2015 Graduate | Kirsten | Candid Joy Photography

Senior season is in full swing here at Candid Joy Photography and I couldn’t be more giddy!  Besides Maternity and Newborn sessions, Senior sessions just may be my favorite!  Kirsten was the first senior to kick start the Class of 2015 senior season.  And boy did she set the bar high!

A lot of times when I ask my clients if they have any spots around their home that they would like to use for photos I’m told they don’t have any spots that are deemed photo worthy.  I typically tend to argue otherwise.  We ventured to her home for her session for what we thought would be just a few quick location uses.  Turns out, we ended up staying there for the entire session because there were so many great spots to use for her session, including the perfect little creek for her to wade in that just happened to have some of the most gorgeous lighting of the night too!

I love that we used so many familiar spaces for her session.  Not only do these locations have a special meaning to Kirsten but they are also guaranteed to only be featured in her senior session.

This year, all of my senior girls are pampered before their session with professional hair and makeup services.  Andrea, my personal hair and makeup artist, did an absolute amazing job with Kirsten’s hair and makeup.

Not only does Kirsten have a girly side to her, she also is quite the athlete, excelling in Volleyball, Basketball and Softball.  Of course we had to showcase her athletic talents too so we finished off her session with some great sports photos.

Kirsten, I had so much fun with you during your session!  Thank you for letting me be a part of a very special time of your life!
