Little Nature Girl

I knew that the piano has been a part of Carly's life for almost twelve years, so I wanted to track down a piano somewhere to get some shots with it for her senior session.  The dreamer side of me desperately wanted to stick a piano in the middle of a field somewhere...well, let's just say that didn't quite pan out.  Hey, pianos are heavy, ok?

I did the best I could and remembered my Aunt Ann has our family's old piano that I took lessons on in third grade.  My piano career was cut short by an unfortunate episode with a Lee Press-On nail....needless to say, it ended with my finger in a splint and the loss of a finger nail.  The piano lessons were put on hold and never resumed.

I was so flattered to hear that Carly was coming down here to see me all the way from Madison, Wisconsin.  I knew her senior session was going to be something special.

I knew Carly was fun, colorful and bubbly, so I did my best to set the scene appropriately.  A HUGE thank you to the ladies at 610 Home (a brand spankin' new AWESOME store in Geneva in the Design District for lending me this bench for the shoot -- more coming on them next week).

Then we ventured outdoors to mingle with nature a bit.  A self-professed "nature girl," Carly didn't shy away from frolicking through the weeds and tall grasses.  A girl after my own heart.

We didn't want to leave out little sis Shae since they had traveled all this way...

...or mom either.  I can only imagine how hard it will be to see your little girl leave for college.  Although sometimes I wonder if Brynn can get an early admission...KIDDING!!!

I can't thank you enough for coming down to let me do your senior pics.  You are a beautiful girl inside and out and I am anxious to see what the future holds for you.  Enjoy your senior year!  All my best.
