norwalk senior girl photographers 2020 class

When people ask what my favorite session to photograph is, it’s with joy and quickness I respond, “Seniors!” I remember being in the final stretch of high school, with the seniority and responsibility that comes along with more freedom and, often, fear. High school was a sweet time for me. I never thought I could love anything more. (Turns out, college is actually just as fun!)

It’s been a desire of my heart for a good few years to really implement a senior representative team. Not only to have soon-to-be seniors helping their friends book me (Holla!) but to serve them. To pamper them, create community, and build relationship intentionally. This year, I finally had the ability to make it happen. I can’t wait to see how this program grows with my dreams, hopes, and the years. There are SO many incredible high schoolers in the Des Moines area. It’s like limitless best friend potential zone!!! And I’m thrilled to invite students from all over the state (even though I primarily photograph in the Des Moines area now, ha). As you’ll see, I had two wonderful gals—Madi and Kacie—join me this year. The sweetest gals, you’ll just adore them.

Meet Kacie! She’s sweeter than sugar, lights up and room, and could out draw you any day. (No worries— just with her art supplies, not western style.) She will make an incredible art educator in the future!

I’m excited to be booking summer sessions NOW for the class of 2020! Open to students ANYwhere in Iowa—so don’t let location be a hinderance. Des Moines may be one of my favorite cities to shoot in, but I love Cedar Falls and Ames (heart homes!) and of course, traveling Iowa in summer is the best time to do so. Shoot me an email here if you’d like to be on my 2020 Senior Team! It would be a magical day to help you create your dream senior photos, together. <3
