I can’t get over how stunning Lauryn’s golden hour, senior portrait photography session is! I took the time to walk through Prince’s Island Park and find spots that portrait photographers dream about! Calgary has amazing hidden gems but this park is definitely a favorite for the variety and beautiful scenery.
Looking back, I see how significant graduating from high school really is. Not just academically but personally. After surviving difficult moments of personal development and social drama, you launch into career planning with crazy memories and even crazier awesome friends from the past three years. You have begun to discover who you are, and who you are not, and now get to build the life you want to live. Those few years after high school are for creation. Whether you travel or jump right into schooling (like I did) it is powerful to realize that every day you are creating your life. Those little daily decisions will collectively have more influence on your life than the career you choose. Who you are is the most significant part of your life. So, here is my little piece of advice: create your life with purpose.
I had been hoping to photograph someone – or anyone! – with lilacs for the past two years and it just wasn’t happening. LAURYN MADE MY DREAMS COME TRUE! These photos are everything I wanted to create! So. Beautiful. Lauryn, you rocked this session!
Thanks for allowing me to celebrate such a significant milestone with you! (And thanks to Jody for being an amazing lighting assistant!) Good luck in your adventures out west! – Ashley
