photo shoot ~ mikyla’s senior portraits

M010As I’m sure I’ve mentioned on this blog before, I am originally from Iowa.  All of my extended family lives there {except for my grandma, who just moved in with me, yay!! :)}.  This is my cousin Mindi’s daughter, Mikyla.  I was seriously excited when Mindi asked me to do Mikyla’s senior pictures, because as you can see, she is a dream to photograph.  I mean, just look at that gorgeous hair!  And her beautiful face!  Add some horses and Iowa’s pretty nature setting, and it was pretty much impossible to go wrong! M008senior pictures with horseM013M023M032M034I have to give a shout out to Mikyla’s sister Molly for doing a fab job on Mik’s hair and makeup.  Also props to Mindi for being a great stylist for this shoot and selecting perfect outfits and accessories for Mikyla to wear!  {Mikyla is so not a girly-girl who cares about stuff like all that ~ she just wanted some pictures with her horses! :)}M039M050pretty senior portraitsM057After doing all the above photos around Mikyla’s home, we headed out to a nearby lake to finish up with the horses at sunset.  As is evidenced here, we used every bit of sunlight and shot right into twilight.  I loved it!  It’s not everyday I get to photograph a gorgeous girl riding bareback on a horse!M068M069M071M075M079M087M090senior pictures at duskM098bM103Mindi, Mikyla, Molly, and Maggy~
