mayabeth – whs senior portraits

I just love working with high school seniors! They’re at a very special time in their lives, when the world is before them and all options are open. They’re hopeful and confident, yet still in the process of turning into the adults they will soon become. Most of all, they’re a lot of fun to shoot!

I had the pleasure of working with Mayabeth, a senior from Wamego High, and let me tell you, this young woman is busy! She runs cross country, plays basketball, volunteers at the elementary school, and to top it all off, was recently chosen to be the Homecoming Queen!

On a day that started out cold, cloudy, windy, and 48F (before wind chill), we went out to a local lake in the afternoon and found incredible blue skies and gorgeous temperatures.

Is it wrong to start a blog post with one of my very favorites from the session?



We really couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day in mid-October! So yeah, we had some fun. šŸ™‚

Here are a few of my favorites from the session:





Man, I just love this next one!





After hanging around the lake for a while, we hopped back in our cars and went over to the campus at KSU to get a few more in a more urban setting.





As the light started to fade, we headed over to the old stadium there on campus to get make some images of Mayabeth in her cross country uniform and spikes.


She has been hitting the weights for a few years now and wanted to make sure we documented the progress. Check out those guns!


Good luck choosing a college, Mayabeth, and in all your future endeavors!
