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.

Jena | AHS Majorette Class of 2019 Video Session | Auburn Senior Portraits and Films | Lauren Beesley Photography

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!

Sweeeeet Caroline! (has probably heard that line a billion times, but it fits!) Caroline is a sincerely sweet Auburn High School senior who was an absolute joy to photograph. She is a majorette, an artist, a dancer, and an absolutely beautiful girl with a sweet heart. And her session was amazing!

Emily | Auburn High School Class of 2019 | Town Creek Park Senior Portrait Session | Lauren Beesley Photography

My family has been friends with Emily’s family since they first moved to Auburn, and we love them so much! But still, with busy individual schedules, I never really had the chance to get to know Emily on her own before we started talking about her senior photos. 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!

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

Keep reading to see all the reasons why I loved this senior portrait session with Anna!

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!

Marina | Auburn High School | Class of 2019 | Lauren Beesley Photography

I loved all the outfits Marina chose, from the long bold colorful stripes, to the hat, to the elegant black dress, to the tied up button down, to the baseball tee and cutoffs...start to finish, totally nailed it. But not only that, Marina was such a pleasure to work with. She and her mom were so easy going and eager to just enjoy the whole experience, and it was just fun. I wish Marina the best in her senior year!

I love love loved working with Rachel. She has a really great sense of humor. I asked her what kinds of things she might like to include in her session (expecting answers similar to musical instruments, or something representing a hobby or achievement), and Rachel’s immediate response was both surprising and absolutely wonderful.

Sunflower Girls | Class of 2019 Senior Rep Photo Shoot | Lauren Beesley Photography | Auburn Alabama Senior Portraits

So you if you haven't been to George's Farmers Market - you are so missing out! They always have tons of great fresh produce, but I don't think anything will ever beat summertime at George's....because of the sunflowers!!! They've had a few wonderful patches bloom this summer, and I love that they share their sunflowers with their guests as a way of spreading goodness back into the world. I love that they use their blessings to bless others.

Hannah | Auburn High School Class of 2019 | Senior Portrait Session | Lauren Beesley Photography

Hannah and I met for her senior portraits back in July, on a nice partly cloudy Auburn Alabama day with a low chance of afternoon showers...and it was a perfect day for photos! Until it started POURING right before we started the second half of Hannah's session! So I had the treat of meeting with Hannah not once, but twice for this fun senior portrait session.

Morgan and I met earlier this year when she helped model for a test shoot, so I already knew she's a beautiful girl to photograph, but she is also super easy going. She had great ideas while we were planning her session, but at the same time was totally open to whatever suggestions we came up with, which made for a fun collaboration!

Farewell Class of 2018 | Lauren Beesley Photography | Auburn Opelika Alabama Senior Photos

This year I worked with dancers, musicians, actors, athletes, people who are involved in the community, who serve in their churches, who are working to put themselves through college, who have amazing goals and ambitions. Every single person I've worked with has left an impression on me, and I am so thankful to have met all of you and your families this year. I hope your photos will help you remember this time in your life. I hope your photos will remind you of how amazing and talented and beautiful you all are.
