For Alex’s senior session experience, she wanted to hit up historic St. Charles, as well as find somewhere with beautiful open fields for sunset. The Columbia Bottom Conservation Area fit that bill perfectly. We had an early start to make sure we built in plenty of time to fit her hair and makeup in at the studio, and still be able to hit all the locations we wanted - and it was worth it! We walked the streets of St. Charles, taking advantage of the town’s rustic charm, and even stopping for some ice cream. Then we headed out to the gravel roads and open fields of the conservation area for sunset.

Alex was rocking her different outfits, and since she booked our Movie Star session, she got to model them like a pro for her own highlight video. Between beautiful locations, amazing light, Alex’s ability to handle any pose or expression I suggested (for real, she could go from full laugh, to dead serious, and back again better than a lot of professional models I’ve worked with) we were able to create a killer video and incredible images. The one thing she doesn’t do? Bugs. :P

Oh, and her album and wall art turned out absolutely gorgeous!
