South Dakota Senior Portrait Photographer | Shelby :: Class of 2017 Lyman Senior

Shelby is the actual definition of the word wowza. Not only is she strikingly beautiful, but she is also an amazing athlete, insanely smart, has a great sense of humor and is just one of those girls who you like to be around. I'm so glad she was a member of our team this year. She is an absolute natural in front of the camera. So much so that every single one of her sessions flew by because we were doing so many things so quickly. And every session was just filled with some sort of quirky happenings. Which, may or may not have included leaning against a fiberglass fence during a session without evening knowing it or walking through a cow yard in the complete wrong shoe choice.

Shelby is one of those people that just seems to jump right in and we love her for it. We had taco night at our house this past year with all the current senior models to announce the in-coming Senior Models for Class of 2018 and the first thing Shelby did when she got in the house was pick up Jensen....which of course led to snap chatting with the dog filter (his favorite). I absolutely love that all the girls every year seem to gravitate toward him. It makes my mom and photographer heart happy.

She's just one of those amazing young women that is going to do great things because she puts her mind to it. I've got so many favorites of this girl but I kept it simple with her blog and picked the absolute top of the top. You're a gem, Shelby!
