Good morning!!! I have been so incredibly anxious to publish this blog post of the absolutely stunning Jonelle. I'm so in love with her photos, but I was also excited about it because her wonderful Mom took a bunch of behind the scenes photos to capture the experience of her day. When her Mom emailed me all of those behind the scenes images I thought it would be super fun to show you some of them and then the finished images as well!
Jonelle chose the Colorado Package, which means that she got both a photo shoot in the fall (you can see those images HERE) and then another session in the winter. Before I get started with the images, I just have to say something about Jonelle. This girl is so amazing. I'm not even positive she knows exactly how amazing she is or how much potential she has at her fingertips. I can tell you that she is going to be crazy successful in whatever she chooses to do after high school. Jonelle is incredibly artistic and is super talented at pottery and art in general. She is gorgeous on the outside (obviously), but she has the true kind of beauty that radiates from the inside out, which you can easily see just by looking at her eyes in these pictures. Jonelle, I feel so fortunate to have met you. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your senior year. I will never forget you, that I can promise you!!! :)
I think this is the best behind the scenes image to start with...every girl walking through snow in cowboy boots with no traction needs a little help from her friends. :) This is Jonelle and I with Jennifer, who did Jonelle's hair and came on location with us.
Haha!! This image below cracks me up. This is what happens when your photographer is short...you sometimes also get a quad workout when I need you to come down to my level!!!
But the result is TOTALLY worth it!!!....
This next series are my absolute favorite images of Jonelle. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may remember me saying that I squealed when I took this photo. This is why...
I wish I could tell you what I'm doing here, but I'm at a loss. Dancing, I guess. Hahaha!
Will you allow me a moment just to talk about these two ladies? Tami and Jennifer are the absolute best kind of people. They are my friends and co-workers, but most importantly they are selfless women who make the experience that the senior girls have one that they will never forget. I could honestly cry sitting here thinking about how much they love the girls and how much they bless me to watch them work. Tami and Jennifer, I love you with all my heart and I truly couldn't or wouldn't want to do this without you!!
