The first thing you notice about Nashville Class of 2017 senior Aubreyel is her infectious, gorgeous smile. She is a smart, vivacious, and beauty with a strength that has pulled her through difficult times. I had a jaw ache from all the smiles and laughter after this fun session in Cumberland Park downtown! Aubreyel dedicated her session to her mom, who her sister and her recently lost to breast cancer. A tragedy like that would be difficult to endure to say the least especially in the flurry of activity that a senior year involves. This lady knows her mom is watching over her, and beams that love and warmth bright enough for her to see in heaven. Nothing embodies fight like a girl like refusing to let anything steal the joy of moms legacy!

After high school 'Bama born beauty Delaney is headed to University of Alabama, to major in Music Education. In the meantime she stays more than busy musically having earned positions on a few different orchestras! The Nashville Youth Orchestra, a division of The Nashville Symphony, and The Williamson County Youth Orchestra both chose Delaney as a performer. Additionally she was in marching band and concert band at her school. Recently, she was also awarded a spot on the All State Band! A National Beta Club member, Delaney is also a member of the Science Club. She spends any free time she finds after that hanging out with friends and at work. So honored to have taken Delaney's senior portraits!
Delaney is an active member of her high school marching band.
Delaney had concerns that she wouldn't look like herself in her session- I mean it can def be awkward to have someone basically staring at you and posing you for over an hour! There is so much excitement about these photos that sometimes seniors also worry about what to wear, how to pose, even what location to pick for a senior portrait sessions.
That is why I feel its so important to tell a senior portrait photographer about your ideas, dreams and activities so they can tailor the session too! Don't feel too shy to ask about all of that, and share you concerns or passions. Not being afraid to think outside the box, and enjoy yourself! I am always excited to hear about creative ideas and plans- and to do everything I can to make them happen. Of course, no matter how much planning that takes place being flexible and keeping that excitement up is also important- the day of Delaney's session downtown Nashville threw us for a few loops with an unscheduled fair at the capitol, and then LSU's homecoming by Nisson Stadium! what followed was a 45 min race to keep the light around downtown searching for parking in the crowds!
We had some challenges, but we still ended up with fantastic photos! The outcome was fantastic. I was so EXCITED when I saw the sneak peek! ~ Delaney
So glad we were early, and allowed some cushion. Despite the urban chaos,, a beautiful soul makes for beautiful photos, and we had great helpers on Delaney's team - her mother and boyfriend- to capture the high school finale of a talented and passionate young lady!

Bryce is a 2017 senior planning to attend college at Wittenberg University in a Psychology; pre-seminary track. All of his activities are surrounded in music, at church, band camp, and even during vacation he is working on his Trombone or bass guitar. Faith and music are so important to him we actually held his portrait session at his first choice location- his church St. Timothy Lutheran in Hendersonville! I love finding out locations FROM seniors, not because I am completely lazy because (I have a ton of favorite spots)
It is because I want this to be as MUCH about the senior as possible!
St Timothy’s prayer path, pictured below, is a favorite spot at church for Bryce.
According to Lord of Life Lutheran in Minnesota “The prayer path is a profound devotional tool. It can be a source of healing, creativity, self-knowledge and connection with the holy. Typically, the prayer path meditation involves three stages”. Learn more about it by clicking here or go ask at St. Timothy!
While I love that he thought his session was “pretty cool” ( this is sincerely the highest praise from a guy- I know its perhaps not the biggest or most favorite highlight of your year? HA!)
My favorite response from Bryce about his session is his advicefor other seniors preparing for their senior photography session- to “Just say, "yes, mom". It's makes life much easier”
Excellent! This young man is so funny, talented, and wise!
Fun fact: Bryce is the only one in his family that doesn't have brown eyes!
