Blog followers may see beautiful Jillian here and think, 'hum, she reminds me of someone.'  You'd be right because Jillian and her sister Alex have amazing similarity between them.   I created a senior portrait experience for Alex just last year and Mom has been dreaming about Jillian's day ever since!  Really cool to see the excitement spill over for each child. Also an honor to partner with great families like these in the creative process.

Jillian knew she wanted her senior portrait experience in the fall, her favorite time of year.  My studio grounds offered an awesome mix this time of year for fall colors and studio creation in the same session.

Below you'll see Jillian wearing a stole fur that belonged to her great-great aunt.  Gayle actually offered that to my studio closet last year so how cool to bring it back out for Jillian's session!  Tagging into family connections in portraits makes for great time of story sharing later!

We had so much fun creating with Jillian.  She has a quick smile that lights up a room and possesses a beauty that is striking in front of the lens.   She's the girl who keeps her friends and family laughing.  Jillian, may your smile continue to shine brightly as you prepare for the adventure that awaits you!
