Reina | Gaithersburg Senior Photographer

Reina is a good friend of Kaila and they booked their senior portrait sessions at the same time - but scheduled them a few weeks apart. Reina also wanted to put her own spin on her session and I loved partnering with her to design the best experience.

Reina just graduated from Hood College this past weekend with a degree in nursing. She has been working towards this dream for the past 9 years - and credits her friendship with Kaila with getting her through the last few years.

Graduating college wasn’t just important for Reina to achieve her careers goals. It was also important for her to graduate for her kids. And with that - we knew we had to include them in her session. We spent the first half of the session with her family and then switched gears towards more of my style of senior portraits. Kaila even joined us for a few snaps to celebrate!

Congrats Reina! You did it!

Kaila | Frederick Maryland Senior Photographer

Kaila contacted me in March in search of a senior photographer. She was graduating nursing school and wanted to celebrate in a huge way. This had been a goal of hers for so long and she wanted an over the top senior shoot - and one where she could include her family.

We started planning and talked through everything Kaila wanted to incorporate. It was extremely important to her that we use Hood College as the primary backdrop for her session - especially the nursing department. But she also wanted to include some cool urban elements too by shooting in downtown Frederick, MD.

The week leading up to the session RAINED non stop. I was so worried the ground would be saturated … and while it was, we could work with it. The bigger issue was the morning of the session - the winds started. Like SERIOUS 60 mph winds. We debated rescheduling but since Kaila had family coming from Connecticut for the session, we agreed to work with it and do our best.

I’m so glad we did because the session was incredible. It was a little chilly and a lot windy - but we had so so much fun. Kaila graduated this past weekend and is now well on her way towards her lifelong dream of becoming a nurse. Congrats Kaila! Your family is so proud of you!
