Destinee | Class of 2016

Setting yourself apart can be a challenge — especially when it comes to your senior photos. Living in the Midwest, it seems like every portrait is set in a field of grass, wheat or sunflowers. While those areas are genuinely beautiful, they don’t do much to tell the stories of the people in them. My latest senior came to me wanting to break the mold. Her one request: no fields.

Destinee is a spunky senior after my own heart — doing something different, looking for a new angle and not following the crowd. I was beyond excited to take on the challenge of snapping her field-less photos, and scouted some awesome locations in and around downtown Kansas City that would be a better fit for her personality. The minute I saw her wardrobe, I knew we’d already hit the mark and were going to have a blast. We braved the early, early hours of a Saturday morning to chase the sunrise for our shoot — and the result was absolutely gorgeous images of this to-be grad in her element without a single flower to be found.
