Kayla is just finishing up her junior year in high school in Monticello and we decided to get her senior pictures done early! We were able to dodge the rain and met at beautiful Weaver Lake Park in Maple Grove. It was a great choice with several distinct locations within a close range of each other.
Kayla has gorgeous lashes and freckles and a personality to match.
It was at this point that Kayla went to change outfits and accidentally locked her keys in the car (oops). No worries, though — apparently the Maple Grove Police unlocks cars for free! We continued with her session and waited for them to show up and save the day.
Of all the different locations, I think the woods was my favorite — her blue eyes really popped with the rich green background.
Kayla’s mom, Kim, used to be one of my very favorite coworkers at a previous job (now she’s just one of my very favorite people since I no longer work with her). I’m happy she was willing to be in some photos with Kayla. It is not hard to see where Kayla gets her beautiful personality, spirit, and looks from!
For the previous shot, I scaled a lifeguard chair so I could be on the same level as Kayla and Kim. After the shot, I found myself somewhat stuck up there with my camera. Kim came to my rescue and was kind enough to snap a photo before I got down. :)
We wrapped up Kayla’s session by the water — a beautiful way to end. Congratulations on finishing up your junior year, Kayla — I hope you have a fun summer and a great senior year!
