This girl made my heart light up! She is sweet, artistic, musical, and beautiful. It was such an honor to photograph such an important time in her life!
When the sun is right, the subject is gorgeous, and the lighting is perfect, it makes for a perfect shoot!!
Unfortunately, time has held me back from posting some seniors on the blog! So have three posts of some amazing seniors I shot last year that I would love to show off!! Enjoy!
I’m not going to lie. I’m getting the hunger for senior sessions. I love shooting weddings, but there is nothing like shooting an individual, during one of the most important events in their lives. And the best part… you have much more control than a wedding. I was all giddy when Kaitlin booked as I … More Senior Kaitlin + Oark, Arkansas
I had the great fortune of meeting John a couple of years ago. And.. when I say great fortune, he has captured a piece of my heart. I have seen him overcome obstacles that have not only earned the utmost respect from me but also has made me so very proud of the man he has and … More John Spurlock Westside Senior
I’m sure the last name is a dead giveaway that this is family! Meet Jordan. If you see him in passing, don’t bother speaking, because he isn’t a talker. He is what we like to refer to as… shy.. just like is daddy! Obviously I was excited about having him on my schedule for his … More Jordan Stricklin Westside Senior
I’m a little bummed this year as my ability to shoot seniors are very limited due to the amount of weddings booked. It’s bittersweet as weddings are my first choice, but I really love to take seniors out and have a great time. Therefore, I am soaking up what little time I get to shoot … More Braden Williams 2013 Senior
2013 seniors rule and 2012 seniors…. were pretty cool! :) I had a WONDERFUL year documenting the 2012 seniors. But the time has come to say goodbye and make room for 2013 seniors!!! Don’t wait too late to book your session with Laura Stricklin Photography. Space is limited and it will be here before you … More 2013 Seniors RULE and 2012 Seniors ________________________
I love shooting seniors. Many I know and many I don’t. But when I book one that is the child of a high school friend. Well. It just makes me feel old! :P We took the Ozark scene and the weather was beautiful for it. Congrats Tyler. I hope your succeed in all your dreams. … More Senior: Tyler Chrisman
I can’t think of a better senior to end my last senior post of the year on! Well. I lie. I think all of my seniors this year rocked, but glad I am ending the 2011 senior posts on Aaron. Super sweet. I know, I say that about all my seniors! But fo’ real! Aaron … More Aaron Walton: Senior + Clarksville, Arkansas
I had the great fortune of meeting Courtney last year when I shot her brother’s, Jacob, senor portfolio. I was extremely excited when her mother called for her senior portfolio as I thought Courtney was absolutely gorgeous! Though a little nervous at first, when she broke her smile, I didn’t want to stop shooting. Beautiful, … More Courtney Griego Senior
I have so many words circle my mind when wanting to explain how much I care about this girl. It is absolutely amazing the life she is leading despite what she has been through. I sat down to write this post…. and all I had was tears as she has, despite her overwhelming-obstacles-no-adult-should-bear, become a … More BeeJay McSperritt Senior
Tyler Jackson = one-very-laid-back-guy! Tyler definitely put me to the challenge on our shoot. He is one who is very laid back, carefree, just chilling in the wind. Making him smile was like freezing ice on heat! But like many shoots, once everyone, including the photographer, was all warmed up, the smiles began….or maybe laughing … More Tyler Jackson Senior
I would watch and watch as Kursty would do flips on the court and yell out those cheers. I thought she was the most adorable thing ever. Till I met her little brother. Most! Adorable! Kids! And a big heart to go with it. I’m extremely sad about Bailey’s graduating as the football field won’t … More Bailey Hunstable Senior
This one is a little special to me. I remember when little Liv was born. And here she sits…a senior. I had an amazing time with her and her mother who I attended high school with. Although, I do have to say, I can’t believe Revelta and I have been out of school long enough … More Senior: Olivia Boswell + Westside Coal Hill Arkansas
Shy. Oh how I love to give a descriptive word about the seniors I shoot and Eric…I describe as shy. Having known Eric for a few years now, I knew his shoot would be one of the challenging sort. You know how I love a challenge. Surprisingly, he was as relaxed as one can … More Eric Raible Senior + Coal Hill Arkansas
Santana Hall. Amazing this girl is. When photographing clients, it takes a bit to get them to warm up and even then, most like to be directed even though I have given them the okay to go into model mode. Santana needed no directing whatsoever and how fun she was! Amazing girl and completely adorable. … More Santana Hall Senior + Clarksville Arkansas
I photograph a lot of beautiful girls; but, this girl is beautiful inside and out! I haven’t had the pleasure to get to really know Morgan. I do know from what little time we have spent together that she has a heart of gold and though very quiet, extremely sweet. Like many other seniors, she … More Senior: Morgan Owen + Westside Rebels
This senior was one of my faves to shoot! Of course, I am biased because she is my son’s girlfriend. :) She is also the only girl I think Greg has ever brought home that wasn’t too timid to have a conversation with Jerry Don. Complete bonus points for her. I have known Ally for … More Senior: Ally Burt + Clarksville Arkansas
I remember being excited. Our school was hosting an alumni basketball game and being as that is what made my life complete in high school, I was first to sign up. It was decided that they would have a dance for all the alumni afterwards; you know, give us the chance to be young again. … More Senior: Ashley McCartney + Westside
