Stylish Founders Hall Senior Session

May 22, 2024

Do you think you are seeing double?

If you have been reading the blog for over 6 months you may remember Grace. She did a senior session with me in the Fall at the beautiful Nolde Forest. Click here to take a look back at that session. It was full of cozy vibes and fun dance moves.

I loved every minute of this session.

Grace is one of my 2024 Senior Spokesmodels. The spokesmodel team is filled with a select number of high school seniors that represent HMP throughout their entire high school year. They get access to exclusive spokesmodel events, several styled shoots, and other fun perks. (Applications for the 2025 team are actually open now until May 31st – click to learn more and apply).

During one of our get-togethers, Grace asked if she was able to do two senior sessions. One in the Fall and then another one in the Spring.

The answer was an easy yes!

I love when seniors do this because they get a ton of variety in their senior photos. Two totally different backdrops. Two different times of year. Double the amount of outfit options.

Yes. yes. yes!

When spring came around, I was so excited to hear where Grace had selected for her second session. The first one was woodsy, cozy, and warm; this one turned out to be a stylish Founders Hall senior session! Grace’s outfits and this location complemented each other so well!

Colorful. Fun. Bright!

She started out with a cute knitted crop top and sleek black pants. It went so well with the bold white columns at Founders Hall. She popped off the background just enough to make a big statement. Then it was into a fun summer outfit — black ripped shorts and a floral shirt. Casual yet fun.

I wish I had the style my senior spokesmodels do back when I was in high school!

Seeing what outfits they bring for their senior session is one of my favorite things. We headed over to a new spot at Founders Hall for her third outfit. A beautiful bridge over a pond and a willow tree! I can’t believe I had never seen it before this, but I know I will definitely be going back to it from here on out. These shots with the sun kissing the edges of her hair had me freaking out!

It was the perfect timing!

We rounded out the session by the clock tower. Grace wore a cute white dress with light blue flowers. A sneak peek for graduation day! It was fun to change it up and add a little movement to finish out the session.

Putting her two galleries side-by-side just solidifies why I love when seniors do two sessions in different seasons. Grace’s are so different and show off all the sides of who she is. She enjoys the outdoors but also has fun dressing up! My kind of girl!

This stylish Founders Hall senior session is one for the books.

Everything lined up beautifully, and I’ll be freaking out about these shots for a long time! I can’t believe my time with Grace on the spokesmodel team is coming to an end. It is always so bittersweet because I’m excited for what’s in store for them in their next stage, but I have loved watching her grow throughout her senior year.

Grace, congratulations on everything! Finishing school early. Competing in dance since you were four. I can’t wait to see what all you do next!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
