class of 2017 senior rep
bad vs. good session

i have known with gorgeous gal since she was a little girl. her and her sister were some of the first people i photographed
(and got paid for. haha!) outside of my own family back when i started photography.
it’s so wild to see her as a to be senior!!

ahna is one of the most full of life people you will ever meet. she is beautiful, happy, kind, smart, generous, loving….
i could go on and on. i adore her so very much!!

ahna and her mom came up with this super fun idea of bad vs. good for one of her sessions.
they had such great ideas and props πŸ™‚ we had so much fun pulling it all together and shooting it.
thanks ahna (and tami…and police officer πŸ™‚ ) for a great session!!! xoxo

we all have a little bad in us….shannon-hollman-photography_4161
