Sara’s Fashion Inspired Senior Session: Grinnell High School

I’m excited to feature yet another amazing senior from Grinnell High School, the ever so stylish Sara!  When she first contacted me, the one thing she said that I’ll never forget was, “I care a lot about fashion!”   I was giddy with excitement, and I hadn’t even met her yet 🙂

Sara chose the couture session, which includes professional hair & make-up styling.  I loved the dramatic plum eye make up she chose!  Doesn’t she look gorgeous?  Many thanks to Megan Cooper for her amazing work on her look!

Now, onto the photos!  This first one on the left?  Very. First. Shot.   I about gasped when I saw it on the back of my camera, and knew we’d have an AMAZING session!

Her prom dress was so perfect for this location and the vintage chair I brought along!  When I asked her where she found it, of course she replies quite simply, “London!”

We changed locations and headed to downtown Grinnell for a bit more of an “urban” look.  Thanks to Flowers on Fourth for letting us borrow their chair 🙂

We mixed it up a bit and added a headband, and I think she rocked it!

And just for fun, a few outtakes 🙂

I also have to thank my friend Aly, who came along for this session and grabbed some behind the scenes photos.  I’m still working on putting those all together, as well as a video for seniors who want to see what a session with me is like.  All in good time!
