Emerson's Wildflower and Airport Senior Pictures in Tri-Cities, WA

With airplanes, wildflowers, and greenery, Emerson's September senior session was so unique. She booked my biggest package, so we got to hit three different locations around the Tri-Cities and she received 50 final, edited images!

We worked together before her session to make sure her outfits were perfect for each spot, and spoiler alert: they were. We had so much fun bouncing from spot to spot, and I'm so glad we got to capture Emerson's love of flying in her senior pictures.

First, we went to Columbia Park in Kennewick. Columbia Park has a ton of different ecological areas, so it leads to an array of gorgeous backgrounds perfect for portrait photography. We started in some greenery.

Another one of my favorite spots in Columbia Park is full of these tropical looking plants, so it makes it look like you're in Hawaii instead of the Tri-Cities!

We also stopped at a patch of cheat grass for some desert vibes.

Our second location was Haven Flower Farm, a beautiful local farm with lots of different flower backgrounds!

For our last spot, we went to the Richland Airport to showcase Emerson's love for flying. I have never shot with airplanes before - and it was such a blast! We actually got to use two different planes, too, so it made the experience even more exciting. We even caught a gorgeous sunset!

Here are the final pictures we took - the ones with a gorgeous, gorgeous sunset!

Thank you so so much to Emerson for trusting me with your senior pictures. She told me that her Pinterest board came to life with these images, and I am always so happy to know clients love their final gallery!
