We decided at the last minute to make a quick showreel to show behind the scenes of our styled #festivalsessions! The pictures don’t always show just how much fun we have, so hopefully this gives a glimpse into what it really feels like at one of our photo shoots. There’s always lots of giggling and a little silliness and a whole lot of beautiful.

Festival Sessions | Behind the Scenes from Sarah McAffry on Vimeo.

The #festivalsessions are the second part of our editorial series. We’re doing these shoots once a month to just have fun and stay fresh and creative! This shoot was inspired by Coachella and the upcoming Bonnaroo. The latest Free People catalog was full of inspiration too. :)

We love the boho, gypsy vibe that is so popular right now and our Class of 2015 models totally embodied the look we were going for. You girls are amazing!

It’s always a reason to celebrate when I have Madison Chapman in front of the camera again! Besides being the prettiest girl on the planet, she has a heart of gold. Madison and Wade Sluss attended Grace Christian Academy’s Prom and I think it was originally Wade’s idea to do pictures at the football field. It was perfect! I always think of gardens or something more formal for prom pictures, but the football stadium is an iconic high school backdrop for an iconic high school moment like prom. It will now be my go-to spot!

Salena Dong is absolutely the cutest thing! We giggled and laughed through her whole shoot. Salena graduates from Karns High School in May 2015 and her senior portraits are her graduation gift from her dad. How sweet is that?! We started her session at my favorite field and finished up in downtown Knoxville. And we may or may not have gone shopping when we finished. :) Salena, we need another shopping date soon!!

This gorgeous group met up at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens’ famous ivy wall for pictures before heading off to the Halls High School Prom. The girls looked stunning in their dresses and they had the sweetest dates!
