OU 2020 Senior | Audrey | Glowy Senior Photos

Audrey for MVP!!! Audrey is one of the most accomplished seniors I’ve had the chance to work with. I am so thankful we had the opportunity to get together after rescheduling her session from the spring COVID mess. We originally reset her OU graduation photos for the weekend of August graduation, but when those ceremonies were postponed as well, we opted for a fall shoot! I knew once we settled on an October that her photos would be beautiful and glowy! There is no doubt in my mind that this is the perfect time of year for photo sessions!

Audrey spent most of her time at OU in UPB and the honors college, so we made sure to commemorate the Union during our session as one of her favorite spots – see the gorgeous photo above!! She also spent a good bit of time studying abroad oversees and really seemed to take advantage of her college experience. I feel so blessed to get to photograph such intelligent, mature, and well-rounded young women every season!

We can’t miss talking about how beautiful and glowy her images were! Seriously – the gold dress couldn’t have been more perfect for fall! It goes to show that your outfits can have a BIG impact on how your images turn out! I know my editing style lends to a more bright, light, and airy look, but I love a good POP of color! Of course I also love a crisp and clean image with soft colors and tones, but I guess I am saying that I will never go to an extreme! Soft peaches, golds, and muted jewel tones always photograph so beautifully and really compliment the October fall season. Especially on campus where things are just naturally warmer, especially when the sun hits the buildings just right! The warm colors and tones have my heart in these! Audrey’s pictures reinforced my confidence in my style and I couldn’t love them any more!

Happy belated graduation, Audrey!
