Meet Chelsea. A stunning, cheerful, hilarious Lee County High School senior.
We began our shoot in downtown Albany which added variety to her album, as our end location was Chelsea's beautiful home in Lee County, as you'll see lots of below. Chelsea brought her mom and dad along with her on her shoot and they were awesome! I enjoy getting to know the families that I get the opportunity to capture.
"I'm so proud of who she has become. She has a huge heart, forgives without question and is kind to all. She makes me want to be a better person and I'm so thankful that God chose me to be her mom." - Chelsea's mom, Danielle
After playing in the rocks (and trying hard not to bust it!), we headed to Chelsea's home to capture her in her element. Her incredible parents spent hours preparing for this shoot with tons of beautiful settings and props for as far as the eye could see. As a photographer, this was essentially Heaven on earth ;)
Remember the cardboard project I shared recently? Here it is in the photo to the right! I loved how they turned out!
Deep Sentiments, Since 1937
Chelsea's great-grandfather gifted this 1937 Chevrolet Two Door Sedan to his son, Chelsea's grandfather, for his graduation. He courted Chelsea's grandmother in this car and many years later, passed the car down to their son, Chelsea's father. On the day of our shoot, it was Chelsea's grandfather's birthday. I still get chills thinking about how cool it was that her shoot fell on his day. :)
How stinkin' cute is she!??!?! Ugh, I love it!!!!!!
"Leave a little sparkle wherever you go!"
Ending our evening together with confetti was the best! I recommend trying this, even if you aren't being photographed as it will surely turn any frown upside down!
I absolutely adored photographing Chelsea and getting to know her story. To Chelsea, thank you for your warm and welcoming spirit and your willingness to explore as I snapped! I hope our paths do cross again sometime in the future! To Chelsea's family, I couldn't have asked for anything better for a senior session! Your hard work in preparation was astounding and paid off big time.
