Bartlesville Senior Photographer | Mia | Bartlesville 2022 Senior Photos

While I planned to save the majority of my fall sessions to blog through maternity leave, this one was SO TOUGH to hold on to – I absolutely LOVE Mia’s senior photos, and we especially love Mia and the Archambo family’s company! It was the biggest honor to help her celebrate her last year of high school with photos downtown and at her grandparents land. While I’ve been photographing seniors for a decade now, she was my first (hopefully of many!) Bartlesville High School senior since moving my business from Norman last year.

Between church and work, we have been blessed to spend more time with both Archambo families (Mia’s parents and grandparents) throughout the last several months. I remember her mom (Elise) asking me at lunch early in the summer about my business and it was so exciting to hear they were already thinking ahead about a Bartlesville senior photographer for Mia! I so hoped it would happen, but wasn’t sure at the time when I would take maternity leave! We got her in right as the fall season started picking up and I was THRILLED!!!

Mia is sincere, easy-going, and a natural beauty – I mean…just LOOK at these photos. She drove us around the land on the gator to get to a few of our spots and as we were shooting, Elise and I were oohing and ahhing over her the entire time! Posing came so naturally to Mia! With most shoots I can pick out 10-15 of my favorites for the blog that really stand out, but I had a tough time narrowing it down with hers!! So fair warning, there are a lot in here!! 🙂

One of my favorite parts of this shoot was seeing Mia and Elise’s reactions to the little preview I shared on the back of my camera…I wish I had a video of it! And a few words they used to describe our time together – “so easy and enjoyable” and “you made it the best experience!”

Now that I’m officially on maternity leave, I’ll be in and out of my email inbox, but you can expect to see a BIG comeback of the #lunchbreakblog!! Same time and place – a new post every Tuesday around the 12:00 lunch hour! I’m SO excited about this! As far as sessions go, my next availability for senior session dates will not be until April 2022 and several dates are already booked! Reach out for more information about booking your Bartlesville Senior Photographer and the MFP senior experience!
