Class of 2017 Senior: Amanda

Kamiak High School

Loves high school because: she gets to create her own schedule through the running start program and still attend all of her fine arts classes and activities at Kamiak. Choir and drama are the best part of her day!

Activities: Amanda is heavily involved in choir and drama at school.

In her free time you can find her: playing guitar and writing music. Or reading psychology and/or philosophy books.

Describes her style as: An easy formula for the majority of my outfits is black + a dress + boots or heels. I try to keep it dark but still somewhat classy and traditional.

Looking forward to life after high school because: she wants to follow the pre-med track and study psychology. Her end goal is to eventually end up specializing in treating and researching eating disorders.

A note for Amanda: Amanda! I will NEVER forget that woman on the beach who was just blown away by you posing for the photo above. I’m smiling just thinking of it now! I hope that these photos captured a slice of your high school years and will provide you with a gateway to all of the memories that high school holds. Hugs!

Class of 2017 Senior: Emily

Kamiak High School

Loves high school because: of soccer & friends!

Activities: soccer (she’s been playing for over 13 years!), young life & leadership.

In her downtime you can find her: eating moose tracks ice cream & reading a good book (preferably written by Jodi Picoult or John Green).

Describes her style as: She says she “doesn’t really have a style,” but I disagree! All of the looks she chose for her shoot have a relaxed and authentic (can I say slightly boho?) vibe to them (which I love!).

Looking forward to life after high school because: she wants to attend a 4 year university and study nutrition, exercise science/kinesiology or athletic training.

A note for Emily: Emily, you rocked this shoot! You look amazing (your gorgeous hair to that dazzling smile… gah!), but what really shines through is your energetic & positive spirit. Wishing you the best in your second half of senior year!

Elizabeth is just as beautiful in person as she appears in these photos. Her blue eyes and golden hair just shine in the sunlight. I love that she brought her dog Prim with her to the shoot for a few photos together.

Elizabeth is a senior at Kamiak High School this year, and chose to have her senior pictures taken at Discovery Park in Seattle. I think it was the perfect setting for her natural beauty & pastel inspired palette.

kendra: class of 2017


It’s so fun to be looking back at all the beautiful seniors I worked with last year!

Kendra is a senior at Kamiak High School this year, and she chose to shoot her senior pictures in Edmonds. I love the variety that this location has to offer… a little bit of small town charm, some urban type backdrops and even the beach! From her smile to beautiful eyes, her lovely long hair to her kind spirit, Kendra is just such a gorgeous person. Inside and out. I loved working with her!
