Hooray for my first “looks like spring” session in central Illinois! This session made me fall more and more in love with warm spring/summer light and working with Miss Bailey was simply amazing!

Several months ago, Bailey’s mom contacted me about senior portraits, but she knew that Bailey loved springtime and wanted to wait for warmer weather and springy colors. I loved this idea and wanted to help frame the session around the fresh new season! We scheduled her session and planned the details with excitement!

Well, like you probably know, spring blooms and beauty also come with spring showers, so the original session date was rescheduled due to thunderstorms (and it was still very chilly outside)! We rescheduled for the following week, and we are incredibly happy for how things worked out! Bailey, her mom, and I all agreed that it was the most beautiful day we have had this year – the beautiful light and warm temperatures made for an amazing senior session!

I loved getting to know Bailey more throughout her session… She’s like me in that she loves soft colors and pastels – She’s a smart girl 😉 I told her that I wished her blush pink jacket was an item in my own closet… Bailey is quiet at first but once she knows you she is full of personality and fun! And, she is driven and determined to succeed on her college path that will lead her to becoming a dental hygienist.

All in all, Bailey is a super sweet soul, and I am thrilled with these beautiful photos! I think they truly represent her and her soft, sweet personality!

Bailey – Enjoy your last few weeks of high school and good luck starting college this fall! XOXOX
