I was very much looking forward to doing Ryleigh’s high school senior session. I had met her on a previous “friendship” shoot a couple years back and I knew she was going to be a lot of fun in front of the camera. We had a lot of laughs and, of course, had a very successful senior photo shoot. Ryleigh is a senior at Tri-Valley High School in Downs, Illinois. My alma mater.
We started off at my family’s creek and I loved her dress!!! We got some stunning creek pictures of her. I love taking creek senior pictures. I love that it’s a little different, but yet very timeless and fun!
We then headed into a rural park in Normal. Ryleigh chose this place for the grasses and the bridges, which are also a favorite of mine. We had some gorgeous lighting that night – I love shooting these senior pictures during golden hour for this very reason!
Ryleigh is a volleyball player on Tri-Valley’s varsity team, so we met up at the school and captured some of her in her volleyball uniform in the gym. These were so fun to take and I’m super appreciative that the coach was willing to set up the net for us!
