Mckenzie Dickson {senior}

Driving back home from this session, Mckenzie, Berk (her sister), and I laughed and laughed. We were lost. I mean lost. We got so amped up about all the awesome photo ops we were getting that we went straight when we should have turned ( the specifics of this are still cloudy ). The point being, we got all mixed up.

Okay, okay. I’ll admit it…Berk told me to turn but I assured her I knew where I was. What? I did! I swear I thought I was direction savvy. My iPhone saved the day- Google Maps to the rescue!

Honestly, for as much fun as we had, getting lost was so worth it. There’s some kind of spontaneity that comes out of searching for locations in new places. We actually ended up finding our last location from getting lost. The photos of the lampshades in the field with those blues and purples are some of my favorites from this session.

I told Mckenzie and Berk that everything happens for a reason and we got lost just to find this awesome field. I mainly was comforting myself and my bruised ego about being a driving queen. But nonetheless, an awesome location..

These two ladies were a blast to work with. I actually met Berk through a high school friend, and they got married not too long ago ( yay for lovebirds! ). So, when Berk messaged me about  taking her little sister’s senior photos, I could not be more excited.

Solo sessions were actually some of my first sessions when I started shooting. I love working with girls one and one. It has such an editorial vibe, and I can always be super creative. I find that all of my senior clients say this to me at the beginning of their shoot : Yeah, so… I’m pretty much up for anything. Just let me know.

They crawl on top of roofs, they take chances at poison ivy, and they go on adventures with me.

I must admit, right now I feel like a pretty lucky girl to be working with such awesome people.

Berk and Mckenzie- It’s finally here!! The blog post is up, and I am so excited for you two to check these out. Please share them with your mom : ) I’m excited for her to see them, too..Congrats on being a senior, Mack : ) You are going to have one awesome year!

– Nicole thank you for these kind words and I love your blog! As far as achieving brghit and crisp images lighting is key. In the photos above, I was able to use all natural lighting by placing the teacups in pretty lighting next to a window. xoxo! Have a fabulous Tuesday :)
