2016 Johnston High School Senior Bailey….Johnston Waukee Des Moines Ankeny Urbandale Grimes Iowa Photographer


This is Bailey who is going to be a 2016 Johnston High School senior. When I was setting up Bailey’s senior session I was chatting with her mom trying to find out a bit about what she wanted her session to be like, her mom mentioned that she works with kiddos with disabilities and that her best friend and neighbor Erin holds a special place in her heart. So I suggested to have Erin be part of the photo shoot, and I am so glad that she joined us because I love how the images of the two of them came out. Bailey you have a heart of gold, it takes a generous, caring, patient, sweet soul like yourself to have a passion to work with these kiddos. Thank you for not only being you but for giving so much of yourself. Enjoy your last year of high school, I know your future is bright and you will do amazing things.
