Alannah | Auburn High School Class of 2020 | Senior Portrait Session | Lauren Beesley Photography

One of my favorite things about being a senior portrait photographer is getting to know my models during the course of a session and throughout the year. Alannah, a member of the Auburn High School class of 2020, was no exception to this rule! She seems quiet at first, but during and after the shoot getting to know her better, I realized she has a super adorable and goofy personality that is so endearing!

Madison | Auburn High School Class of 2019 | Senior Portraits by Lauren Beesley Photography

So technically this wasn’t a senior photo session, this was actually me and my occasional session assistant Madison taking my new camera out for a trial run….BUT these definitely still fit the senior portrait category for photography since Madison was a senior this year, and these are portraits of her ;) It was really fun to have Madison in front of the camera, not only because she’s gorgeous, but also because she also enjoys photography!

It’s not just Amelia’s talent and personal creative edge that made this session so much fun. It was also her commitment to being entirely who she is, and that inner confidence definitely came through and made these photos and her senior video, well, kind of epic. Just like Amelia.

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.

So excited to be sharing this beautiful Auburn High School senior’s photos today!

Miss Madison’s session is on the blog today and I could not be more excited to share these images and video! When we first planned Madison’s senior portrait session, we thought we would go to downtown Auburn and a nearby park and get a mix of city/nature for her session….but when we double checked the date and saw that it was an Auburn home game weekend….those plans changed….but absolutely for the best!
