Lake Island State Park | Homeschool Grad 2022

In May, I took Faith to Island Lake State Park for her homeschool senior session. It was a blast to get to know her as we documented this special time in her life!

When she contacted me to talk about possible locations, Faith asked if we could go to a wild field! Absolutely, we can!

After some scouting, I found this beautiful patch of grass next to a convenient public parking lot. This session goes to show that you don’t need a super fancy location to have breathtaking photos!

Faith’s mom came to the session to support her. It was so much fun to meet both of them! They’re both so nice.

As we got to know each other, I learned that Faith is super talented. She is very musical and plays the violin.

All that time performing on stage must have prepared her well for the camera! She was a natural at posing for me, and she had lots of fun with my suggestions. 

I also learned that she is very active in her church’s youth group, and she leads a weekly prayer meeting with other teens. Wow!

To make her session a bit more special, we used a wicker chair from home and a bouquet of flowers! She also brought two stunning outfits. These extra details were totally worth it! I love the variety.

During our session, we used the beautiful backlight to our advantage. These photos turned out so heavenly thanks to the golden light of the sun.

Faith is so excited to continue her education at Concordia University. I know you’ll do great! Keep loving life, Faith! It was an honor to take your senior photos!
