Shelby is my homegirl/Centennial High School, class of 2013 (Portland, Oregon senior photographer)

The eldest daughter of a wonderful family, Shelby is kind, thoughtful and so sweet to her siblings. She’s also a great athlete, super hardworking and fun to be around. By the time we shot her senior photos, she’d already been in front of my lens for some family photos and as a bridesmaid for her mom and dad’s wedding. She was a pro.

We met at Laurelhurst Park, an expansive and diverse park for photographs or for hanging out in Southeast Portland. Shelby brought her best friend along to make the day even more fun and to help keep her energy up on a cold, winter morning. (Thanks for holding my sorry-looking reflector Jessica!) After an outfit change, Shelby’s amazing mom went and got us all hot chocolate to keep us warm between shots. (Love ya Tiffany!)

Shelby helped me realize that senior photography is one of my absolute favorite things to do. High schoolers are fun to be around and always make me laugh. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a bit of a teenager at heart myself; someday I’ll be too old to talk about boys, laugh at fake moustaches and dance like crazy to Usher, but today is not that day!
