John Stephenson // Senior Photos

This shoot is one of my favorites to date! It’s timeless and classic, like it came straight out of a Ralph Lauren Ad. John was super laid back and easy going. He trusted me and went with the flow and did alllll the crazy and ridiculous things I asked him! He was such a good sport. Thanks to that dreamy golden hour lighting, magic was made!

Handsome, strong, easy-going, kind & compassionate are just a few words I would use to describe John. I have loved this boy since he was little. Years ago, when I was in college (and beyond!) I had the privilege of nannying for his family. Those years made up some of the most fun and special years of my life.

Summers filled with jumping off their boat house, watching them do their best flips on the trampoline, playing board games, breaking up sibling arguments and days filled with baking and laughter! Those years filled my heart with dreams of what having my own family and being a mom someday would be like. His parents are the absolute best. They have loved me and poured into me, like one of their own! Skylar and I couldn’t be more grateful for this family. The impact they’ve had on our lives has been incredible.

Because of that, this shoot was extra special! John and I had so much fun and it filled my heart with dreams of what my boys will be like at that age! I’m so proud of you, John. I love the man that you’ve grown into and can’t wait to see where the future takes you!

He will be standing firm like a flourishing tree planted by God’s design, deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss, bearing fruit in every season of his life. He is never dry, never fainting, ever blessed, ever prosperous.
— Psalm 1:3
