Senior Portraits at McKinley Park Rose Garden

A young woman poses for a senior portrait in the McKinley Park Rose Garden

I had photographed her brother’s senior portraits a few years prior, and now it was Emily’s time to shine. And when it came time for her session, she chose the McKinley Park Rose Garden. She didn’t choose the blustery wind, but hey, she worked it all the same.

So equipped with a doting mom, loyal puppy, and a handful of outfits, we headed to the Rose Garden to see what magic we could make together. Truth be told, Emily made this shoot a dream. From simple, graceful portraits to more moody and fashion-style captures, Emily was up for just about anything. Her free-wheeling sense of humor and easy smile probably would have made some beautiful moments anywhere, though we were blessed that day with plenty of that springtime sunshine and roses in full bloom. Ahh.

Take a look at some of the highlights from Emily’s senior portrait session below:
