Emily- Red Lion High School Senior Photography York PA

In honor of this beautiful and sweet ladies birthday I thought it fitting to post her model session and senior photos. Emily was the very first girl to sign up last year to be a senior model for me this year. I loved her enthusiasm and knew getting to work with her would be a joy, I was right. We had a blast during her senior model session (a few favorites from that to start off this post) and her senior photos. 

For her Senior session she went with a all natural look, no makeup to start and later Crystal joined us to apply some beautiful soft makeup for her last two looks. I LOVE this idea and think it is a great option for those seniors who may not typically wear makeup or for a sweet Dad/parent who prefers their little girl without makeup ;) What a great compromise!

You will notice a pumpkin in a few of her senior photos so here is the Story behind the Pumpkin photos:

Before Emily's senior session her Dad approached me, without Emily's knowledge, and asked if I could somehow incorporate a pumpkin in her shoot. It seemed like an odd request especially for a Summer session, until I learned of the beautiful and thoughtful reason behind it. He shared with me how Emily lost her mother a few years ago and they called her pumpkin.  I knew how special this photo would be to Emily so the search for the perfect pumpkin began. Of course I did not want a bright orange pumpkin and I after some thought I knew what I was going to do. I remembered I  had a beautiful bronze pumpkin as a Fall decoration, it would be perfect.  It was so special to honor Emily's Mother that day and take time during her senior session to remember her mother. Moments like that make me realize how important photography really is. It is not about the clothes, the makeup, the locations, sure all that is a blast! However, it's about capturing moments  you will never forget even if that moment is a heartfelt reflection of the beautiful mother you wish was physcially with you during your senior photos..

Emily- It was been so special getting to know you and your Dad. I can not wait to see what lies ahead for you. <3
