Downtown Tampa |Senior Photography Session | Hailee Rose| Nature Coast High School Graduate

Tampa Senior Photographer

Welcome back to my bloggy blog world!  This beautiful girl is Hailee.  A graduate from Nature Coast Technical School. As you can see from the balloons she is holding, we are celebrating her and how she is no longer a high-schooler!  Way to go, girl! Class of 2018. While attending Nature Coast, Hailee was a NCT Shark cheerleader for ALL FOUR YEARS.  She spent her free time working and spending quality time with family and friends.   These balloons gave us a headache.  There was a little bit of wind and of course the balloons took the brunt of it.  After several takes, we finally got that “wow” image.

In the fall, Hailee will be an official college student attending a state college, PHSC. While attending school there, she will be majoring in Emergency Services.

I loved the outfits that Hailee brought to the shoot. For example, that adorable blue dress that looked so great with and without her cap and gown. But check out this simple and casual look that complimented her so well.

The cute flowing pants paired so nicely with this off the shoulder top.  It added just the right amount of sophistication and playfulness that exemplifies her personality.

To say we had fun at this session was an understatement.  While I always have a fun time with all my clients when shooting, this one made my cheeks hurt.  Hailee has such a fun personality and is such a joy to be around. It is so important to have a great time during a shoot like this, or any session for that matter.  But when it is a one on one, just relax and be you!  That is exactly what she did.  She came with some poses in mind, and we used them as a starting point and expanded from them.

With the package that she chose, it entitled her to a couple different locations. Her first location had to be dog friendly so she can bring along her 6 month old pup Chloe.  GAAAAHHHH, how precious are these two!! I’m such a dog lover, so when anyone wants to bring their fur-babies, I’M TOTALLY GAME!

I’m a sucker for black and white photos, but let me also show you some color!

When I asked Jenny, Hailee’s mom if she could change one thing about the session, she said, ” I wish I didn’t procrastinate so long in getting them done.”  This is so important for anyone who is interested in getting Senior Sessions done.  Especially when using the package Jenny chose for the extra locations for Hailee.  We had 2 separate days that we had to book.

I asked Hailee if she had any tips for other girls getting their hair and make up done for their sessions. She replied with…natural!  I totally agree with that.  It also helps that your mom is a hair stylist.  So Jenny was able to get that girl just perfect and natural looking.  Head on over to Southern Dreams Salon to check out all the amazing things they offer there.  It is an adorable shop with so much more than hair.

I wanted to give Jenny the opportunity to write something to her daughter.

I am beyond proud of you Hailee Rose and all of your accomplishments this far. You have overcome so many obstacles and diversions and somehow remained true to yourself! You are an amazing, beautiful, young lady with an incredibly strong will.  You are the wildest soul I know and have the ability to make anyone laugh. Your smile is contagious and I am so blessed to be your mom.  It is amazing to see how you’ve grown so far and I look forward to watching and cheering you on as you achieve your goals and chase your dreams everyday.     Love, Mom

Here is proud mom, Jenny and her graduate, Hailee.
