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. And I hope you all know that I am sincerely cheering you on as you start the next chapter of your life.

Maya is just a stunning person inside and out, and I loved being able to work with her for senior pictures and other senior rep shoots this year!

Cole | Auburn High School | Downtown & Theater Senior Portraits

When we found out we had permission to use the theater for this senior portrait session, I was so excited to be able to use the space, the seats, the aisles, the stage, and some off camera lighting to really create something a bit out of my usual natural light style, but that was better suited to capture Cole in his element, in a place that is so much a part of his experience at Auburn High School.
