From Carlie’s initial email inquiry to meeting for the first time at her senior session, I had a hunch that this girl would be a ball to hang out with. And she is! Carlie plays softball (previous pun not intended) and loves spending time with her mama. She loves Mexican food (fav snack is pancheros leftovers, amen) and has killer style. Plus, she trusted me with her senior pictures and I’m just so so so grateful. If you’re a Lincoln High or DSM student looking this —or next— year for senior photos, bookmark my website and send me an email! I’d LOVE to hang out with any friends of this gal!

Nothing better than a little white sundress for senior photos. Carlie’s vibe can’t be fully expressed in words, so I’ll leave you with the photos from her seniors. We jumped right in to sharing life and laughter, and some deep conversation, too. Seriously love all my senior gals… we can be best friends, right??? ;)

A new outfit and location! East Village continues to grow, and I”m such a fan of all the new buildings and shops. This white brick wall had me feeling all sorts of Joanna Gaines vibes (subway tile backsplash, anyone?) And Carlie’s second outfit was comfy, cool, and tells the world this girl is up for ANY adventure ahead!

Since we parked on Grand, a stop outside Petals + Moss (East Village’s newest plant emporium and the cutest shop!) was in order. What a fun way to end the night!
