Fall Middle Creek Wildlife Senior Session

Oct 20, 2021

Fall Middle Creek Wildlife Senior Session

Bear with me for the start of this one. I promise it will come full circle soon! My mom is one of my biggest supporters. Always reading my blogs, asking how my sessions went, adding my events to her calendar, so she can keep track. Plus constantly sharing my posts, so her friends can see everything as well!

Seriously, she is the best word-of-mouth!

So there are often times I get inquiries from people that know my mom in one way or the other. I seriously can’t thank her enough for that. Sometimes it’s for weddings, but recently, it was been for senior sessions. Danielle has worked with my mom for years, and one day, she saw my mom post about my senior session availability this Fall. Instantly, she reached out to get more information because her son is a 2022 senior. She didn’t want to miss the chance of working with me.

Seriously, the sweetest compliment!

I had met Danielle maybe once or twice before, but like all of my moms coworkers, they have known me since I was little. I was excited for the chance to catch up and also meet her son. So the date was set right away, and the location was picked for Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area. One of my favorites during this time of year. Leading up to the session, I was a little unsure. Sometimes guys can really not love photos and only be doing it because their mom made them. Those are the tricky sessions.

That wasn’t the case for Cody!

Sure he was a little shy to start, but that is to be expected. I’m still shy when I get in front of the camera at first. It didn’t take long, though, for him to relax and just enjoy the session. His laughter is contagious and with his family around to joke with him, the session was such a breeze! I honestly couldn’t believe how quickly it went!

Time flies by when you’re having fun!

The location was perfect for Cody’s personality. Fun, outgoing, adventurous. Plus, he loves to work with his hands, so the nature setting fit so well with who he was! And his outfits were filled with so much variety while still being true to him. He seriously maximized his Fall Middle Creek Wildlife senior session to the fullest! Cody, I hope you have an incredible time in college. Never loose that bright smile of yours or your outgoing personality.

It will take you far!

Danielle, thanks so much for reaching out! It was so great to meet the whole family and catch up with you. My mom is probably just as excited to see these photos as I’m sure you are! Enjoy!!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
