The end of the summer always brings back memories of picking out a new backpack and notebooks, getting my highlights redone and maybe a small trim if I was feeling adventurous, and just getting back into the swing of school again. As I am going into my senior year of college in a week, I’ve been feeling super excited about how far I’ve come since high school. At the core, I feel like I have always stayed true to who I am as a person, but I like to think I’ve grown into a better version of that high school girl. I have discovered my passions and have found the direction my soul is dying to run full force ahead in.
Earlier this summer, I decided to reach out to some amazing seniors for a class of 2018 styled shoot. It was the first time I really decided that seniors needed to be a part of Tori Kelner Photography for it to feel right to me. These 6 incredible ladies were gracious, passionate and full of joy throughout the entire process, which made planning all the pretty little details a lot easier on my end! Their senior year is just around the corner, and I am so incredibly excited to see where their dreams lead them this year and beyond. Thank you all for being the most beautiful models and such incredible people and leaders in your communities. Check out the gallery to see some tea party goodness and more of these sweet girls!
I must give a huge thank you to everyone who helped make this shoot come together. My parents are my backbone and they help me see all of my crazy ideas through. Thank you for your endless support and for waking up super early to help with setting up! The beautiful cake and vintage décor made this shoot an absolute dream. Thank you Gina of Frosting & Sprinkles Cakes for working so hard to help me with my vision – she was more than willing to make the cake and cake pops vegan for me, which meant so so much to my happy, little vegan heart. Willie, your eye for adorable china dishes is unreal!! Thank you for allowing me to use your collection for this shoot; it wouldn’t have been the same without you! I can’t wait to finally share all of these images with everyone, but I am REALLY EXTRA SUPER SO EXCITED to share this behind the scenes video by Joey Bierman who worked so hard on creating this piece that captures our day so perfectly. Check out the behind the scenes video here! My heart is so full from everybody’s help, thank you all again!
