Hannah Colby | Senior | A Captivating Senior Session at High Cliff State Park in Sherwood, Wisconsin.

September 15, 2016

What a perfect spot for your senior photos when being outside + surrounded by natural beauty are what make you come alive. I met Hannah + her mom at High Cliff State Park for her senior photos last weekend + I was just in awe of the all of the beauty around us everywhere we turned! It’s no surprise why this is one of Hannah’s favorite spots in all of Wisconsin. She spends a lot of time here hiking with friends + enjoying the scenic views the park has to offer. As she was telling me why she loves being outside, I heard her voice light up with that fullness — fresh air in your lungs, wind on your face, trees + water all around … I can really relate to this! One of my happiest places is being outside + in the SUN : )

I also learned that Hannah feels alive when she is spending time with one or two people + they are really connecting with each other in their conversation. Having a great discusssion, understanding one another, + feeling passionate about the same things. “When someone tells me something + I’m like, ‘YES!! I completely agree! I GET that!!’ — that’s a feeling I love,” she told me. Hannah is quiet + reserved when you first meet her, but there is so much depth to this beautiful young woman + it’s almost as if you can see the wheels turning inside her head when you’re with her — thinking, listening, + making connections. I had such a great time with her + her mom, + I’m so thankful for people like them, who make me feel so comfortable + appreciated : ) You ladies rock!

There’s no denying Hannah’s beauty — she is a natural “model” + I could just photograph her all day! While a serious, thoughtful type of image is more her style, I had to sneak in just a couple of laughing ones because OH my GOSh, I am in love with her smile + her dimples (I’m literally smiling right now typing this just thinking about the moments when she would open up that way during her session!) : ) She is such a wonderful young woman + I feel honored to have had the opportunity to capture this season of life for her!! Enjoy some of my favorites from her session + have a great weekend, everyone! XO! 


I just love this one : )
