What is a senior portrait experience like with Little Bells Photography?

Modern. Fashion inspired. Totally unique. Luxurious.

Kayla knew exactly how she wanted to be photographed. Being a long-time modern dancer, she craved artistic portraits and soulful expressions. After our consultation, I knew I was meant to work with this girl. Her insane dance talent paired with my fashion magazine inspired approach would be a stellar combination.

Kayla and her mom started the day off at Moda Salon with my uber talented stepsister/stylist, Morgan Matlock ( We had already shared hairstyling and makeup ideas on Kayla’s private shared Pinterest board, so Morgan already knew what Kayla had in mind for styling. Kayla really wanted a couple of serious, fashion inspired portraits, so I knew that we could create something amazing in the studio.

To change up the mood, we headed Downtown Bloomington to give Kayla plenty of space for her dancing and jumping shots. Walking around barefoot through alleys and on the street, she jumped, twirled and posed as cars paused to watch. Who am I kidding? I was in awe, too!

Kayla has some serious style, so we left plenty of time for a couple of outfit changes. Take a look at some of our favorites to see how Kayla rocked her photo-shoot.

We are all so in love with her portraits and now Kayla and her family have a gorgeous leather album filled with her portraits and a beautiful heirloom wall canvas of her favorite image. And since I am all about fashion, I specially commissioned a fashion illustrator to sketch one of Kayla’s favorite images!
