When Did She Grow Up?! A Senior Shoot 18 Years In The Making

I’ve known Maryn since she was born. Literally. So, before we get into it, let me show you how I still pictured her in my head before we started this Senior photoshoot (she’s in the middle):

Fast forward to today … Maryn is 18 years old, and about to go to UCM to major in Theatre Technology/Design.

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?! Kim, Ike, anyone?! Tell me how!

And it’s not even her height. She has been taller than me since she was, like, 8 … it’s that she is old enough to go to college … like in a few weeks!!! :O

Maryn, who was active in theatre throughout her high school career, wants to work as a costume designer in a professional theatre setting.

And she’s already well on her way. She hand-beaded this vest! She said she worked on it for several years. You can tell by the detail!

I also want to point out that the little alien on there was a trinket that I gave to her older sister, Sadie (one of my BFFs), when we were younger! I was touched it was still being put to good use!

Every year, Maryn goes to the White Hart Renaissance Faire. She’s also been known to frequent the Kansas City Renaissance Festivaland the St. Louis Renaissance Festival!  It was an obvious choice for her to wear one of her handmade outfits for her senior photos!

And, of course, we had to whip out the fan she brought for a prop! I spent more time than I care to admit editing this one! And we also spent a while looking for it in the grass after the photoshoot! Hahaha.

For another outfit, Maryn rocked this vintage dress she found in a thrift store. She said it was only a few bucks — #winning!

Maryn was such a good sport about all of the crazy things I asked her to do (thankfully, my clients already know I am a little out there, they know what’s coming!).

“Maryn, lean against that tree … backwards!”

“Maryn, I really love how the moss looks on these logs!! Sit down in front of them … then look backwards … but then look at me with your eyes!”

“Maryn! I am going to lay down in the grass upside down to get this shot … try to look normal!”

But, hey! That’s how you get the shot! Thanks for putting up with me and my crazy antics, Mare!

In closing, Maryn had a message for her parents: “Thank you guys so my for putting me on the path to my future! I couldn’t have done it without you, and I can’t wait to see what the future will bring. Love you!”

Isn’t she the sweetest?!
