Amanda’s Senior Session in Pella

Amanda had her senior couture session in early October on a frigid day, but you would never know!  She was so wonderful in front of the camera and I loved getting to know her.  From learning more about show choir to what it’s like to live in Pella (I’ll admit, I’ve sort of always idealized the cute little Dutch town that’s 45 minutes southwest of Grinnell!) I had such a great with her and her mom Michelle.  She brought perfect outfits and looked absolutely gorgeous!

Gorgeous!   I’m always jealous of girls with brunette hair, fairer skin, and blue eyes.

One of my favorites!

When Amanda contacted me back in August about her senior session, I was excited about the opportunity to shoot a session someplace new – in Pella, Iowa.  The town isn’t new to me (I have several friends that live there, and my former supervisor in my old job often held meetings there), but shooting a session was.  I had SO much fun finding little nooks and crannies to shoot in, and I’m so grateful that Amanda trusted me as we hunted through back alleys to find some awesome locations.  My absolute favorite was this one – a little awkward corner behind a couple of buildings with brick, grass, and other interesting features.  So wonderful!
