Sneak Peek: Diamond Lake Senior Portrait Session

The weather was beautiful yesterday for Jessa’s senior portrait session – it could not have been a more perfect late summer day!  Jessa will be a senior at Grinnell High School, but we headed down to Diamond Lake in Montezuma for most of her session, and we found some fabulous spots.  I can’t wait to show you the photos from this super cool brick wall Jessa found when she was scouting out spots on her own – it was an awesome spot!  Here’s a quick sneak peek of a few of my favorites.  It was hard to narrow it down to just a few, but you’ll get a full post later on 🙂


We joked about the “I-love-a-wall” senior photo that is very popular, and Jessa played along for one photo — turns out, I actually really like it!

This soft teal colored shirt (I’m not even sure how to describe the color!) was the perfect color for Jessa.

Thanks for such a fun session – I had a blast!  There will be lots more to post later, including a few outtakes of Jessa’s sister, Addie (I hope I spelled that right!) who was a wonderful “assistant”  and a HUGE help!
