Light-Hearted Colorful Senior Session at Conestoga House and Gardens in Lancaster, PA

Jul 30, 2019


These are some of the words that instantly pop into my head when I think of Abbi. Abbi and I met through her sister, who is one of the girls that has played on the volleyball team I’ve coached the past two years. We didn’t get to talk much during the two seasons until the last tournament in Pittsburgh. Abbi joined her family for the trip, and after one of the nights of playing, a few of the families went for milkshakes at the famous Milkshake Factory, so of course, I joined!! This was the first time Abbi and I really had a chance to chat , and I quickly realized what a sweet person she was!

I was soooo beyond thrilled when she asked if I would do her senior session.

Not only is she beautiful, but I knew we would have a fantastic time at the session. And let me tell you, it was exactly that!! We couldn’t stop cracking up and talking about everything under the sun. Her mom came along and was over in another area during one point of the session. When we finally came over to find her, she said she couldn’t stop laughing at us because she could hear us having a great time the whole way over there. That truly summed up our entire session!

Smiles were free-flowing, and by the end of the session, I felt like I had made a close new friend!

The Conestoga House and Gardens was a gorgeous backdrop for Abbi. Each turn was filled with colorful florals that made her pop right off the background. With her light-hearted spirit and contagious smile, this location perfectly complemented her personality. Each new area brought a new atmosphere and picture for her to become a part of. Abbi, I wish you all the best in your final year of high school. Cherish each moment because it is going to go by so fast! I can’t wait to see what life has in store for you once you graduate. I know you will do incredible things. Thank you for asking me to capture such an exciting time in your life, but I am even more excited about the friendship that was created as well! I hope you enjoy the photos because I know I can’t stop looking at them!!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
