Elizabeth // Central, IL Senior

I have known this sweet girl and her family for just about 4 years now. I remember playing games at their house with some guy that I had a crush on (that would later turn out to be my husband) and all of their family and friends. They are the world's most gracious family; their doors have always been open to anyone. :)

I took some photos of Elizabeth 3 years ago and I remember thinking how far away her senior photos were. Then 3 years went by in the blink of an eye, and here I am today sharing this insanely gorgeous young woman with you all. 

I'm so proud of the young, bright, cheerful woman that you've grown into, Elizabeth. I can't wait to see the bright future that unfolds ahead of you <3

Side Note: I love posting the "blooper" shots of people genuinely laughing. They bring me oh so much joy! Closed eyes and all <3

Quick story: We were trying to get this shot of E in the crosswalk amidst the traffic, when this police officer pulled up and asked me to come over to talk to him. I completely thought we were in trouble, but he was so sweet and asked if he could help us and stop traffic so we could get the shot. Seriously!? So memorable :) Obviously we asked him to hold her balloons and to take a photo so we could show off how nice he was! Thank you, Officer!!

Once the sun was set we did some experimenting with smoke bombs. Seriously SO cool. Love these few images.

 

I also want to give a shout out to her talented sister, Kristen, who is also a photographer, for sharing Elizabeth with me. I think we can all agree that when you have a model like Elizabeth, everyone wants to get her in front of their camera ;)
