Tess Howard | Senior | A Bright + Summer Senior Session in Appleton, Wi.

August 27, 2015

A couple of years ago, I took Tess’s older brother’s senior pictures at their family lake house in my hometown of Waupaca, WI. I loved getting to meet this family + even took a few shots of Tess + her brother during our time together that summer. THIS year, however, Tess is a senior, which means another day with the Howard family + a job that was beyond easy photographing this beautiful, beautiful young woman!!!!

For Tess’s session, we met in Appleton (where the Howard’s live in an adorable old blue home with tons of character + a bright red door!), + where Tess attended Appleton West High School. As she gets ready to begin her senior year, this lovely lady is prepping for a final year of extensive involvement in the school’s art, theater, + band programs. She is such a talented young woman + so gifted musically : ) On top of it, her smile is TO DIE FOR. My gosh, I could photograph her all day long!! Her zeal for life + deep joy RADIATE in every image! I promise!! We had so much fun together because Tess was just so relaxed, enjoying herself, + FULL of true happiness : ) We also got to take some pictures with her THREE dogs which is always a great day in my book!! 

Tess, I hope you know by now how much I enjoyed spending time with you last week!! You have such a bright, contagious spirit + I am truly so excited to see where you go + what you do with your life!! Enjoy this last year of high school, keep loving on that mom of yours like you do so well (hehe!), + sing + play your heart out, lady!!! So much love to you!! : ) 

Meet all the DOGS!!!!

Oh, that smile!!!! <3 <3 <3 

How cool is this spot!?!?!

Love love love!!!

BEAUTIFUL ladies!!! XO!
