Ava Fall Sunrise Senior Session || Southern Illinois Photographer

Wohoo! I have been so excited to share this senior session with you because, IT WAS AMAZING! The outfits, lighting, and the senior! This was such a fun session to photograph, and I’m so excited to share all the fun and beauty with all of you!

Ava is such a sweet and gorgeous girl from St. Elmo, and I was SO thrilled when she reached out to me back in the spring for fall senior photos. Let me just say, this girl was ready! I wasn’t even sure if I’d be able to offer fall sessions this year because we’re constantly moving for Hayden’s clinicals, but I told Hayden no matter what, I have to make room for one session for Ava! I knew that if she reached out to me the spring before her senior year – she would be super fun and excited about her photos! Well, I was right, and I’m so glad we were able to schedule her session in this busy fall. Ava looked absolutely adorable in all of her outfits – that were perfectly planned and selected, and I always love loose curls in photos!

For Ava’s session, we started early at sunrise to capture her photos in the morning glow in the middle of the country. I’m always a fan of fall photos, but you’re never guaranteed fall foliage. Lucky for us, these gorgeous flowers (I’m pretty sure they’re weeds) had JUST sprung up on this property, and were in the PERECT spot for sunrise photos. Talk about a win-win!! We moved around to several locations, and I’m not sure I can pick a favorite one!

I had such a great time at Ava’s session, and the thing I love the most about Ava is her ability to visualize and plan! As someone who loves planning, it was so nice and refreshing to have someone with a similar desire to prepare! Ava is such an organized and on-top-of-it individual, and I’m sure her leadership skills will take her far after college!

Take a look at all of the prettiness, below!!
