Senior Photos

Nailah - Class of 2018 by Londen Wheeler

Ahhh, man. Looks like I took an unintentional leave of absence from blogging!  Between work, things going on in my personal life, and trying to be a 23 year old, it's been hard to get out and take photos.  So yeah, meet Nailah!  She's a high school senior who is graduating in the next few weeks!  What a great young lady!  Very confident, very talented, and obviously works the camera like nobody else can!

It was a joy to explore Downtown Plano with Nailah and her mom.  Other than the wind blowing at 100 mph, everything about the afternoon was perfect!  I don't think there would've been a better day to do a senior shoot honestly.  Nailah is actually the first high school senior shoot that I have done since moving to Dallas so I can finally cross that off of my photography to-do-list!  What a great way to start off my first senior session in the Dallas metroplex!

If anybody is interested in doing any senior shoots, please let me know!  I am always looking to do more shoots like this.  I've always wanted to do an athletics themed senior session so definitely let me know if you guys know of anyone who would be down for that!

This Past Weekend by Londen Wheeler

It has certainly been a while since I have posted anything to the blog.  But this past weekend, I had an opportunity to photograph a high school senior and a college senior.  I'm super grateful for the time that we spent together and getting to know them more.  We all toughed it out and tried to withstand the cold weather and crazy wind, especially on Saturday.  Kudos to Gabby for wearing a dress with the weather being the way it was.  "You tha real MVP."

Jayden is a high school senior from the Charlottesville area.  I didn't know Jayden and his family but found out that we had many different connections with people we knew.  We really live in a small world, I'll tell ya that much!  It was awesome to meet Jayden and his family!  Good luck with the rest of your school year and let me know where you choose to attend college!

Gabby and I go wayyyyyy back.  Back to the middle school days and spending our summers at the Boys and Girls Club in Charlottesville.  When I moved away, we lost touch and somehow reconnected when we got to college.  The first time that I had seen her (outside of social media) since middle school was at a bowling alley in Harrisonburg when some friends and I got together for my birthday.  Since then, we've been keeping tabs on how we were doing and scheduled to do a shoot together!  It's so awesome to be able to reconnect with amazing, lifelong friends.  Wish I could be at your graduation, Gabby!  I'm proud of everything that you've accomplished!  The future is bright for you.

Javin's Photo Session by Londen Wheeler

Javin DeLaurier, a 2016 St Anne's-Belfield School senior from Shipman, Virginia committed to Duke University to play basketball.  A family member to do something as great as that is simply amazing.  Athleticism is running through our veins as he is one of two people in our family to sign to play a sport at the Division I level this year.

Javin is by far one of the most humble human beings you would ever meet!  Knowing and watching him grow as an athlete and into a young man makes me believe that he is truly ready for what's ahead.  Best of luck to Javin as he finishes his senior year of high school and moves on to Duke next fall.  #GoDuke
