Hope Hardiman // Central Columbia High School


It’s not everyday that you get to play with bold, vibrant colors but Hope let me live my Lilly Pulitzer dreams. We walked around downtown in search of all things pretty and patterned. But all those bright hues were no match for Hopes sweet smile and blonde locks. She mentioned she’s a dancer throughout high school. I wasn’t surprised considering how natural she was in front of the camera.

A little fun fact, throughout the entire session we got eaten by approximately 1,396,452 bugs because it was the middle of the summer and blazing hot. Still didn’t stop her from radiating from start to finish.

Hanging out with Hope for the day was such a joy. She’s a one-of-a-kind girl, for sure. Wishing the very best for your future, Hope!

Lauren Spicher // Central Columbia High School


“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience”. This is Lauren’s favorite quote by Eleanor Roosevelt and it’s no secret why! Lauren is such a fun-loving, spunky gal and confident in front of the camera. She opted to treat herself to a makeup artist for the shoot and my lens couldn’t get enough of those gorgeous brown eyes. Her session got rained on but she didn’t let that dampen her fabulousness one bit!

The best part? She has beauty and brains and is off to college to study pre-medicine. I had so much fun shooting with Lauren and can’t wait to see where life takes her. Good luck, girlfriend!

Jillian East // Milton High School


Wow. I mean… wow! How beautiful is Miss Jillian?! When I saw the East family email pop into my inbox again, I squealed with joy. I’ve worked with them in the past and just love their family. Jillian was so at ease in front of the camera. I assisted with some posing but for the most part, she knew exactly how to work it.

Along the way, we found a field full of yellow flowers so obviously we had to jump in! Afterwards, we made our way to the dock during the sunset. Her outfit choices complimented the sun, which made for some truly stunning photos.

Congratulations on graduating, Jillian! Can’t wait to see you kill it in college.
