I’ve known the Nicholas family for several years now, and have had the opportunity to photograph all three of their beautiful daughters, as well as their whole family at different important times in their lives - weddings, senior photos, and just updating photos of the family for their home! This fall I had the opportunity to photograph their youngest daughter Lauren’s senior photos!

I'm so thrilled to share this senior portrait session today, featuring the one and only Ben! This Auburn High School senior also happens to be my brother in law and the last of my husband's siblings to graduate high school.

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.

Looking back at all these photos and how radiant Kalyn is, you would never know any of the stormy drama that went on that day, but this experience will always be one to remember! I'm excited to have Kalyn as a part of the Class of 2019 Senior Rep Team because I know there will be more fun photo shoot memories to come!

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.

Mitchell Family | Smiths Station Family Portraits | Lauren Beesley Photography

As a bonus perk for my Class of 2019 Senior Reps, each of their families receive a credit for a family portrait session! The Mitchell family was the first to cash in on their session since their son was going off to school for the year and we all know how hard it is to coordinate schedules around holidays and school breaks and all that fun stuff! So I'm glad we were able to make it work this summer!

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.

Claire, the world traveler, was one of the first seniors I met with this summer for her senior photos! We were able to find a quick moment between her various vacations and all of our rainy weather lately to do her session, and she set the bar pretty high for this year! Now it's finally time to share some of our favorites!

This year we were able to have our first senior rep bonus photo session in June! Not everyone was able to attend, but we got about half the team in one place and had a lot of fun putting together this Red White and Blue 4th of July theme! This post has more than a few cute photos of these amazing young women, but that's not even my favorite part of this shoot.

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!

This is it, the final Class of 2018 Senior Rep Spotlight, reserved especially for the lovely Emily! I met Emily for her senior portraits later in the fall when we took her senior photos. I knew the team was missing something, and after working with Emily, I knew she was a perfect fit to round out the group to a fabulous five.

Another day closer to graduation, another post about one of my favorite Class of 2018 seniors! Maya and Maddie and Maddie from my last two posts are all good friends, and it was great to have all of them as members of my Class of 2018 Senior Rep Team. 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!

Maddie M | AHS Class of 2018 | Lauren Beesley Photography Senior Rep

I kind of made it a joke that I only photographed people named Maddie this year, because I met three seniors named Maddie in the Class of 2018. However, the Maddies I met were all one of a kind, and beautiful in their own unrepeatable way. Another one of these special Maddies is Miss Maddie M! One of the amazing members of the Class of 2018 LBeesleyPhoto Senior Rep Team.

This is only the second senior rep post I've written, and it's already getting harder and harder to write these! It's like admitting this year is actually coming to an end, and I'm not sure if I'm quite ready for that. Today, I'm looking back at this year with Miss Maddie and sharing some of her senior portraits and senior rep sessions from around Auburn and Opelika this year!

I've been so blessed this year in my photography business. SO blessed. And I can name five of those blessings right off the top of my head, because I have had the BEST 5 Senior Representatives that I could have ever asked for. Over this last month of the school year, I can't help but highlight each of these amazing people before they go on to graduate!

Auburn Senior Rep Prom Session & Film! | Emily + Maggie + Autumn + Hannah | Lauren Beesley Photography

Last week, we had another senior rep group photo shoot! This time the theme was - PROM! Because who doesn't love any opportunity to wear a gorgeous dress as many times as possible! It was totally by accident that these four girls ended up wearing gowns that perfectly coordinated with each other. I think it is almost guaranteed that I will have a prom session for senior reps every year from now on! Enjoy these photos, and the video from this session!
