Sydney’s Radiant & Whimsical Senior Photo Session

Updated: Sep 15, 2023

As a photographer, there are moments when everything comes together perfectly – the location, the lighting, and most importantly, the Senior! Sydney's senior photo session at the White Barn property was one of those magical moments. Sydney is a senior at Kaneland High School who will be graduating this spring. She plays on the volleyball team at her school, and has big plans ahead as an aspiring orthodontist.


The White Barn property is a personal favorite of mine, and it holds a special place in the hearts of my high school seniors too. It is so loved because it is a serene, tranquil location that allows seniors to relax and be themselves without the distraction of other people around. It is a hidden gem that boasts both rustic charm and natural beauty. The White Barn was the ideal backdrop to show off the natural beauty and poise that Sydney has.

The White Barn property also offers a lot of versatility, as you can take photos all around the property. It set up a beautiful textural backdrop of weathered wood, keeping Sydney the focus.


One of my favorite parts of any senior photo session is when my seniors show off their unique personalities through different wardrobe selections. Sydney chose both a relaxed, casual look and a beautiful tiered gingham dress that is both playful and sophisticated. She strolled barefoot in the gardens, creating an absolutely whimsical scene.

Sydney was a natural in front of the camera during her senior photo session. She mentioned how lovely the location was because of its quiet charm, nestled away from the hustle and bustle. Her session was simply serene!

Our time at the White Barn Property took us to the corral fence, which Sydney eagerly climbed. She was so adventurous, which filled her session with personality and whimsy. For this portion of her senior photo session, she chose a more casual outfit: a flowy tank, jeans, and sandals. This casual but cute outfit made for a more relaxed feel as we ventured on through our time together.

I loved working with the natural lighting that the day brought. It helped to illuminate Sydney and the landscape, while showing off the natural beauty of the whole composition.

She is absolutely radiant! I love the bridge location because of its simple beauty; it provides a gorgeous backdrop for any senior photo session while still letting the senior shine! Locations like this are perfect for seniors because they can bring their unique personality and style to the session and truly make it their own.

Sydney is a devoted and hardworking volleyball player for the Knights, so it was an honor to create her senior banner as well. I had the honor of creating the Senior Banners for the KHS Volleyball Team this year, which is something I truly enjoyed having the opportunity to do. I love getting to showcase how versatile and passionate seniors are - and Sydney is no exception!


Sydney’s senior photos will serve as a lasting memory of her high school years. She is stunning in front of the camera and her gorgeous smile and eyes are truly radiant. It was a joy to create these images for her and her family during this incredible time of her life. I wish her the absolute best as she goes on to pursue her big dreams post high school. Congratulations, Sydney!
