Lincoln Park Zoo Senior Portrait Session | Kierra

When Kierra and her mom first reached out to me for her senior portraits, I almost couldn't hide my excitement - Keirra's family is one of the kindest I've been lucky enough to meet, she was so easy going and trusting when it came to her session, and her amazing senior style is seriously what photographers dream of. Honestly, was I the only dweeby teen who could barely manage to match my socks? And look at this gorgeous girl! :)

Kierra and her family met me at Lincoln Park Zoo for her portrait session, one of the best places in Chicago to take senior pictures, and on one of the rainiest weekends of the year. The amount of rain had made all the plants bright and alive, and created the perfect backdrop for these fun, unique, and nature inspired senior portraits. We walked around while the sun was setting, finding gorgeous spots to use and Kierra saved me from an angry bee. All in all, a truly gorgeous day, a lovely young woman, and some stunning senior portraits to remember it by!

Thanks again for letting me photograph your senior portraits, Kierra, and good luck on all your adventures!
