get ready to meet all of my 2016 senior reps! first up is amber who will graduate in 2016 from Pleasant Plains High School!! what can i say about amber…

it goes without even having to be said that she’s drop-dead gorgeous (obviously)! her hair is ridiculous but more importantly, she has a great personality and is super fun to be around!

aaaaannnnndddd, if you know her at all, you are aware that she knows her way around a basketball court and a track! to think that this was just her rep session, i cannot wait for her senior session coming soon!!

amber ~ thank you so much for being a senior rep! i’m so happy to have you!

eli is soon graduating from Glenwood High School in Chatham! i’ve known his mom and dad for as long as i can remember and i bet they are in a little shock that somehow he’s a senior already! time goes so fast!

eli was such a fun subject during our session! and you know what i found out during our time together ~ he knows his mom’s starbucks order forward and backward (and it isn’t super easy either). all together now…awwwww!!! only the good guys go out to get their mom a starbucks every now and then! he’s definitely a good guy!

thank you so much for asking me to take your senior pics! i had such a great time getting to hang out for a bit! and for those of you who might not know, my oldest son’s name is eli ~ which means i think your name is pretty amazing too!

good luck Eli!

i’ve heard through the grapevine that she’ll be attending Mizzou this fall! how awesome is that!! she’ll be amazing wherever she is and whatever she does! she also has a little sis coming to my camera soon! I can’t wait!

good luck taylor!
