Confetti-filled Summer Senior Session at the White Cliffs of Conoy, Marietta, Pennsylvania

Jul 25, 2019

What is better than doing a fun photo shoot with your best friends, you ask? Doing a photo shoot with your best friends that is filled with confetti poppers and balloons!! This session will definitely go in the books as one of the most fun sessions I have had to date! These girls were filled with nonstop laughter and happiness the entire time! We had about a mile walk to the White Cliffs of Conoy, and it was so fun (and brought a smile to my face) listening to these girls chatting the entire way. Their friendship is so strong and they truly want to tell each other everything!

The only thing that could have been a little better was the temperature not being 100 degrees that evening! Who knew that sweat could cause quite a scene when you pop confetti all over yourself…..

These girls were troopers none the less and embraced the added sparkle for the rest of the session!!

Each of these girls will be seniors next year at Conestoga Valley High School. They have been best friends for years, and I can’t wait to see what this final year has in store for their friendship. Senior year is always a difficult one to prepare for. You are finally the “big kids on campus,” but you also know that high school is coming to an end. Life will change. People will move far away. But the connections you make during those years of school will always hold a special place in your heart. Although they may be going in different directions to college, YWAM, work, etc, the bond these four have formed is one that will stay strong through it all.

Each time they meet up I’m sure it will be like they had never been apart!

Thank you, ladies, for brightening my day, not only at the session, but also every time I look back through these images! Y’all bring such a smile to my face! I wish you four ALL the best as you start your senior year and celebrate everything you have done up until this point! You deserve it! Remember to always stay in contact with each other no matter what! Send a quick “thinking of you” text or hop on a quick Facetime chat! Your friendship is part of what got you to this point in life, and don’t let it stop there! Cherish each moment together and sometimes break the rules (a little)! You four are the best, and I can’t wait to see where you all go together and individually!!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
