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.

Hello 2018, Part 2 | Family & Senior Portraits | Lauren Beesley Photography

What's new?! Well, my services just got a major makeover. I've worked with many clients who loved their photos but didn't have a plan after receiving digital files, and those files got stuck on their computer never to be seen again. Quality photography is an investment, and I believe you will never see the full value of that investment if you only ever view your images on a screen!
