Emily defines classic beauty. You just can’t deny that she has a charm about her that is reminiscent of days gone by. For Emily’s fun portrait session, we decided to go with a modernized 1950’s theme, and although she might have been reluctant to pose for the camera at first, I think these photos say it all — Emily is a natural. :)

I first met Emily when she moved into Goodnow Hall on the K-State campus as a freshman. I was her RA that year, and quickly grew to love her adventurous, yet intelligent outlook on life. She was always the girl who had a good head on her shoulders. I loved chatting with Emily until 2 a.m., as she shared stories about her freshman antics and I shared stories about my long-distance love interest…who didn’t know he was my love interest. I’m now married to him. Emily called it. :)

Thanks so much for the fun photo shoot, Emily, and for humoring me when I suggested the abandoned movie theatre in old downtown Shawnee (a suburb of Kansas City). We took all of these photos in a location about 1/2 a city block long…I love it! More proof that the location doesn’t matter as much as the creativity of the person! Emily, you definitely made this one a success!

I’ll leave you with a series of my favorite shots:
