Carley C. | Senior | A Spencer Lake Senior Session.

June 16, 2015

Two senior sessions in a row on the blog!! We will go in spurts like this with posting senior sessions because the majority of our senior clients are from my hometown of Waupaca (or the surrounding area), so we schedule them in clusters whenever we go up north for a wedding! 

The original day for Carley’s senior session ended up being rainy + stormy the entire day, however luckily we were able to reschedule for the following evening which brought sun, sun, + more sun!!! It was a GORGEOUS evening + we had a blast together–Carley, her mom, boyfriend, + I!! We shot the session at a camp just outside of Waupaca called Spencer Lake Camp–a place that holds not only a very special place in Carley’s heart, but mine as well!!!! God used this Christian youth camp to begin a life-changing momentum inside of me that affected me all throughout my high school + college years as I was growing into the woman I am today!! And let’s be real, the change will never stop as I will continue to grow for the rest of my life : ) 

Anyway, it was also at this camp where Carley continued to grow in her faith (+ also where she met her boyfriend, Sid, who is originally from Arkansas)! Carley’s dad is on the board of directors for this camp + the family hosts a few weeks of camp at Spencer Lake each summer for their ministry, Special Touch. Walking around this beautiful place with such amazing people made for the perfect evening in my books : ) You’ll see just how beautiful this place is in just a minute!!!

I’m excited for you to meet Carley today because her spirit will no doubt bring a smile to your face : ) This girl is FULL to the brim of joy, life, + natural beauty. Her favorite thing to do in life is “laugh”–plain + simple : ) I love this about her + I loved getting to capture this deep joy that she possesses! After graduation, Carley plans to attend Northwestern University + hopes to study both international studies + pastoral studies : )  So, so perfect for her : ) Carley–enjoy some of my favorites from your session–it was so hard to narrow it down!! And thanks for such a fun evening : ) xoxox!!

SO pretty!!!

A favorite for sure!!

Model status!!!!!

LOVE this location!!!!!! 

And this one, too : ) The most beautiful lake!!! Especially at sunset!

So excited for your future, Carley!!! May God bless you abundantly!!!

    This Auntie, thinks you are a very beautiful girl. You are a joy to be around. Watching you grow into the young woman God has intended you to be has been a joy. I’m anxious to see which pictures you pick. It is going to be a very difficult job. Love you Sweetie
