Favorite High School Memory: I spent the latter part of Valentine’s Day at my friend’s house for her “Anti-Valentine’s” Party. After eating, we decided, on a whim, to take her boat out to the resaca behind her house. It was completely unplanned, but it was the most fun I had in a while. We sang obnoxiously together as we watched the sun go down, paddling along in the water. I came home soaking wet, and I’msure we annoyed a few neighbors with our attempt at gondola singing, but I had an amazing time!

Why did you chose Kody Diane Photography for your senior portraits: I have been completely blown away by a lot of your work, so I’m confident that you’d be able to capture exactly what I’m envisioning for my portraits. Also, judging from your posts, you seem like a person who genuinely cares about your clients and your work. Therefore, I already feel comfortable talking to you (even though we haven’t met yet) about the things I want because I know that you won’t see me as just another girl walking in the door. I really fell in love with the way you catch sunlight. It glows on the girls’ hair and faces, and it just looks beautiful. I also really love your edits because you make the girls look absolutely flawless. Finally, I absolutely adore your locations. You really know how to coordinate outfits with places.
