I have a very special senior portrait session to share with you today! Oh how I love this girl. She’s smart and funny and quick witted. She’s got boatloads of talent. Let me tell you — this girl can sing! She also happens to be gorgeous. And she has no idea how beautiful she really is. She’s got big dreams and big plans, and she’s working on making them a reality. I love people that don’t limit themselves: the dreamers, the doers and the change makers. She’s one of those people.

Meet Makenna.

Oh, and did I mention she’s got this awesome vintage style? To die for. Unique. And it made this portrait session so much fun!

Makenna and I had an amazing time just outside Las Vegas in this great middle of nowhere desert town called Nelson. We embraced that vintage style of hers and planned a shoot that would show it off. And we laughed. Seriously, I loved everything about this shoot.

Makenna’s latest adventure is off at college in Oregon! She’s in love with the green surroundings and the drastic change from desert life. She’s soaking in the rain and the clouds and the scarf-wearing weather, and she’s studying languages and culture and working toward kicking butt with those incredible vocal skills of hers.

It was such an honor to create Makenna’s senior portraits. I really do feel so lucky to know so many amazing teens with big dreams and the will to reach them.

I can’t wait to see where the future takes you, girl. You’ve got this!
