There are a couple of reasons I will never forget the day we took Bainer’s senior photos. Okay, maybe just one: PRINCESSES!

That’s probably not the first word you thought of when you saw the photo above this little caption, right? Well, believe it or not, the day of Bainer’s senior session at Hartwood Acres, there were TONS of people gathered at the Hartwood mansion for a photography workshop - and the subjects were little girls dressed up as princesses!

I wouldn’t be surprised if there were close to 100 people there, because they took almost every nook and cranny of the mansion up! And I do not mean that at ALL in a spiteful way - it looked like a great workshop! I just couldn’t get over the irony of this workshop happening on Bainer’s session day. But he was such a trooper, princesses and all!

As you might be able to tell, Bainer plays the guitar and loves music. Besides bringing his guitar to his session, he also brought his dog, “Fozzie,” who I kept calling “Fonzie” throughout the session 🙈

Congratulations on your last year, Bainer! It was such an honor to take these photos for you!
