It’s time for another “Celebrate the Seniors” session and this time we’re learning all about Gracie Tuttle. I’m loving this continuation of this special series that I started during the lockdown of 2020 to bring some sunshine to the seniors who missed out on so much of the fun of senior year. Celebrating these fine young men and women in this way is so much fun!
I met this smart, beautiful senior through her father, who contacted me to photograph his business headshots several months earlier. Gracie is so kind, respectful and up for anything. When we sat down to plan her session she didn’t know where she wanted to go for her senior pictures. This is pretty normal so we talked it through and as I learned a little bit about her and her interests we decided that a section of the Ice Age Trail would be well-suited to her personality. She also mentioned wanting pictures with her dog Simba. Their gorgeous home on Pewaukee Lake provided an easy way to capture those images with a perfect backdrop as Gracie spends a lot of her time on the lake. We were blessed with the most gorgeous sunset to end for the night!
When I interviewed Gracie I got excited to learn that she is interested in studying abroad in either Spain or Costa Rica (see below)! I studied in Spain during college and went to Costa Rica on my honeymoon so it seems we have similar interests! I try my best to encourage many young men and women to study abroad because my own experience doing so changed my life for the better. Continue reading to learn more about Gracie!
