Meet Kennedy! She is 16 and is about to be a senior at her school! She is a part of a hip hop dance team and loves it! She is so full of love and life…she is a happy teenager with the world right at her feet.

She also is going to be a part of a mentorship program this year. She will be assigned a freshman student to mentor for the year. She will teach them all the ins and outs of high school, all about the school and be a great guide. High school can be super intimidating so to be able to have a mentor to help you adjust is a great idea! If I was a freshman I would LOVE to have Kennedy as a mentor!

Kennedy was so much fun to work with and we had such a blast… sometimes high schoolers take a little bit of time to warm up, and Kennedy was no different, BUT it didn’t take her long to come out of her shell. Her mom, Marcie, was with us at the shoot and that always seems to help especially when I need a good laugh out of her. I would ask Marcie for a good story and Kennedy would laugh and give her mom that look that teenagers give when they know what is coming next.

The bond between a mom and daughter is so strong with Kennedy and Marcie. I can’t imagine how hard it will be when Kennedy leaves for the Air Force. These two are so much fun together and the concern that Kennedy had when we were walking on unstable ground for her mom was just so sweet. They love each other so much and I only hope that when Makenna is a teenager she likes and loves me as much as Kennedy loves Marcie!

This girl has a lot of hopes, dreams and plans, which is more than I can say for me when I was that age! She is wanting to take the ASVAP testing for the military and go into the Air Force. She wants to pursue public relations with the Air Force…how awesome is that?

    I would drive by this park and knew I wanted to have one of my kids senior pictures taken there. Mandy made it happen. Love, Love, these pictures. Captured the very essence of my daughter! Her personality shines through in so many ways. Thank you Mandy!
