{3} Senior Gals!


Wow! I only graduated three years ago, but I sure have forgotten what it is like to be in High School, again.

Kelsey, Maddie and Kayla sure brought back memories of High School, like talking about their dance later that night and their boyfriends! (hehe). Needless to say, they kept us laughing the whole entire session and put a huge emphasis on the word FUN!


She is super photogenic, gorgeous and not afraid to be adventurous with us. We adore both her smile and her serious face. We loved having her and her friends be a part of our first session EVER! Can’t wait for her to be a BOILERMAKER, next year!




She is hilarious! Maddie has many traits that we found comical, but our favorite was “Okay guys, what should I do?!” We also found out some stuff we would have never known without having this session with her (I’m still laughing!). Side note, Maddie is still practicing her ‘serious face’, so until then, she is all smiles!




Beauty! Talk about a lady who knows how to work it! Kayla, is such a great model! Maybe she has a modeling career in her future? Needless to say, we loved the laughs and smiles she brought to all of our faces during this session.



Our first senior session was stellar! We hope to have many more like this one in the future! Have a group of friends? Want to all get pictures together? We can make it happen!

The Faces Behind the Name


My name is Michaela Blanding, and my fiancé Ryan Byrd and I are very excited to start this new venture. I am a full-time student at Purdue University and a full-time Mommy to our sweet Ellen Tressa, but I am adding this as a part-time career as a way to support our family and make a difference in the world. God has a plan for us, and we believe this is what we are being called to do. #ByrdsEyePhoto
