Sunny Guitar Senior Portraits | Oak Park Senior Photographer | River Forest, IL

Senior portraits at Thatcher Woods in River Forest, IL

As I told this senior, even during the busy season I will MAKE time to do senior portrait photoshoots! Seniors are my favorite – I love getting to know them and getting to provide a tailored photography experience that showcases their interests and personalities!

Representing the Oak Park River Forest High School class of 2021, this senior loves sunshine (possibly even more than me?!?), animals and plants, the color yellow, playing her guitar, and her sweet little sister. It was a true delight to get to know her and to take some magical photos at her golden hour guitar senior portrait photoshoot!

I love her cow socks! She’s teaching herself guitar from YouTube (talk about self-driven!) and played “We’re Going to be Friends” by the White Stripes (one of my favorite bands) while I took these shots!

She said the guitar was her Dad’s! I love that we got to incorporate something meaningful to her!

THIS PHOTO. Let me remind you, she loves 1) sunshine, 2) her guitar, 3) the color yellow, 4) nature. I literally gasped when I saw how this shot turned out! The sunflare is 100% legitimate!

She said her dream job was to work at an animal sanctuary. How cool would that be?
