Sweet 16 | Columbus Sweet Sixteen Portraits
This girl is absolutely stunning! An extra special "Sweet 16" session just before she turned 17. Sometimes life happens and gets in the way and schedules don't work out as planned BUT I've gotta say that I'm glad it worked out this way... Had they done them a year earlier I may not have been so lucky to spend the afternoon with her! Meeting her family felt like I'd known them forever. Sharing dinner with them was an extra highlight and ending the night with them seeing what we'd created together that day made for one of my favorite days last year! I only wish they lived closer!
Here are just a few of my favorites.. Narrowing them down was SO tough!
The first two were their favorites and will be framed portraits for their home.
The pond was in their backyard and when I saw the swing I knew I wanted to use it. They quickly agreed and said it's one her favorites places to spend time in their backyard!
Girl.. I mean seriously. You are SO beautiful!
This is one of my favorites. A little sass.
This dress was SO pretty and I loved the way it flowed when she'd move. At the very end of the night she was took off the makeup and we did a few natural portraits. Oh how I love these! My favorite spinning picture.
The swing. Tree swings are the BEST.
Willow trees run a close second to tree swings...
This reminds me of "royalty". So proper. Thank you again to Kara and her family for the opportunity to spend the afternoon with ya'll. What an incredible day it was and I hope you enjoy these pictures for many years to come.
