Today, I’m excited to share something a little different with you! Most of my senior sessions are photo-focused with video highlights….but this past week I met up with a senior and her mom who did the opposite! Jena is a super sweet and smart and talented girl, and one of her awesome talents is baton twirling! We took this skill and ran with it to create this fun, dynamic senior year film!

Kennedy | Opelika High School Class of 2019 | Opelika Senior Portraits | Lauren Beesley Photography

One of my favorite things about senior photos is that seniors have lots of cool interests and talents and hobbies that are fun to incorporate in photos. Not only is Kennedy super involved in school and extracurricular activities like the honor society and yearbook editing and serving as her class treasurer, she also somehow has time to be a varsity cheerleader and a photographer! Including those passions made for some uniquely Kennedy portraits.

My family has been friends with Emily’s family since they first moved to Auburn, and we love them so much!

I’m so glad to have had this opportunity to create these images for her and her family, and to learn more about her awesome self in the process!

Hare Family | Kiesel Park, Auburn Alabama Family Portraits | Lauren Beesley Photography

I was really honored when the Hare family reached out to me to be their family photographer. My name and bee branding resonated with a sweet sentimental family nickname with Sara (mom), which is a fun way to make an initial connection. I loved hearing about how their family came to be, about their 6 dogs, and it was a lot of fun working with them to create these photos!
