Anya’s Senior Portrait Session in Grinnell

It’s hard to believe this session was about a month and a half ago, but time goes by quickly!  Anya chose the couture session, which includes hair and make-up provided by my amazing stylist, Megan.  I love the natural and pretty look that Anya went for, with the beautiful soft curls!  We started off her session at a location I was testing out for the first time, and I love how it all came together!

After a location change and outfit change, the sun was about to set, which made for absolutely INSANELY gorgeous light!  I love these next few!

I love this one on the bottom left.  It has this quiet serene quality to it, which seems to capture Anya’s personality quite well in my opinion.  She is incredibly brilliant, talented, yet also on the quieter side.  I really enjoyed getting to know her, even though she’ll have to forgive me for mixing up the oboe with the clarinet multiple times!  Quite an unforgivable mistake considering I played the clarinet for years in grade school!

Thanks for an amazing time, Anya!  Congrats on your senior year, and good luck with all your college applications 🙂
