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.

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.

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.
