Caitlyn | 2022 OU Senior | University of Oklahoma Graduate

I couldn’t have kicked off senior season with a better girl! Caitlyn was my first of five grad sessions at OU this year and her session was the perfect way to start the trip! In years past, I’ve always done big marathon seasons…I would book anywhere from 15 – 25 girls, shoot a couple times a week through the month of April and early May, and go ALL OUT! Those seasons were SO much fun, but they were a lot of work! Even when I was single and living in Norman! Life has changed (just a little bit 😉) since then, so we opted to scale back significantly this year and only take five rockstar seniors. We went all out with them…I was hoping to completely spoil these girls and I hope they would say we did!

I had over 80 inquiries for these spots…and Caitlyn was one of those! My mom and I met in Norman on a Monday afternoon, she kept Ruthie while I worked back-to-back sessions on back-to-back days, and we had the best time! We’ll probably do this again next year for the 2023 seniors, but I guess Ruth will be old enough that she may be able to stay at home with Jonathan! (HOW?!)

It is so fun when things come full circle at these sessions – Caitlyn had actually reached out about senior photos back in 2018 when she was graduating from high school! And here she is, just three short years later graduating from OU and about to pursue another degree! She spent countless hours in the Bizz, the Conoco wing of the Union, and with her sorority through her time in school. I loved meeting Caitlyn and her mom and am excited to share a few of my favorites today!!

Also – how gorgeous is her hair and makeup!?! She is a natural beauty, but I absolutely LOVE how her eyes pop!!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Absolutely stunning!!
