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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

I'm so excited to share some photos from Abigail's Auburn Senior Portrait session. I was so impressed when Abigail contacted me about her photos. She has a really unique story, and I can tell that her experiences have led her to become mature beyond her age, but she's still a fun regular teen who is excited about senior year. I'm honored she chose me to be her photographer, and that she is one of my Class of 2019 Senior Reps this year!

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 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.

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.
