Julia - or more preferably "Jules" to those of us that used to babysit her years ago! - is a senior this year! I absolutely can't believe it. It might make me a little old, but I really think the last time I saw her, she was about as tall as my waist, with a face full of freckles, and giggling about anything and everything. Well! Fast forward several years, and she's about as tall as ME, still has a face full of freckles and still loves to giggle!
When Jules and I talked about where to go for her senior shoot, one of the things she was absolutely adamant about was taking photos by the lake. This girl lives and breathes water and I love that she wanted water to be a part of her shoot. She was so comfortable and relaxed at the beach and we had some absolutely amazing light! We started in downtown Crystal Lake, where she's grown up and ended by the water. She picked an amazing blue dress (with adorable shoes!) for the first part of the shoot, and we just had at it! She got into it so fast and had me laughing during her "singing in the rain" portrayal with the lamp post!
Jules - "Beauty is as beauty does", little one, and YOU are beautiful. Love you!
