I first met Courtney last December when her sister got married. I was the photographer and had a great time with the bridal party. Courtney had mentioned to me that she would be needing her senior pictures the following year but I wasn’t sure when she would be calling me, if she even would at all. I was thrilled to see an email from her mother a couple weeks ago. They asked if I had anything open and that she wanted it to still be warm outside LOL. That’s not a problem where we live, it’s been a very warm summer. Last Saturday I met up with Courtney and we drove to Belleville, IL for her session. She’s such a cute girl and always has great style so she wanted something more urban/modern. I knew exactly where to go…well almost! I knew the few roads I wanted to go down but I couldn’t remember when we first got there. We ended up circling around what seemed like east St. Louis until I finally found the locations I was looking for. Courtney had knee surgery this past June and she’s still recovering but she was a champ. Asking her to sit on the ground and moving around a bunch was something I was worried about but she didn’t complain at all. She basically said whatever I needed her to do…she would do! Everything was going well till we changed into the last outfit and were headed to our last spot when it opened up and poured! It didn’t matter though. We had a ton of great images to use and she decided that the last outfit didn’t have to be used.
I’m so excited to show you my favorites from her session. Courtney, you’re gorgeous and you made my job WAY too easy! I love all of your images!!! Thank you for letting me boss you around for the day and I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do. Good luck and enjoy every minute of your senior year. It goes by fast!
