Sidney | Class of 2018

She’s a falling star
Burning in the night
She's the shimmer
On the water
In a river of moonlight ~
The days before her session, I worried about rain because that was the forecast for the weekend. When Sidney showed up, it was a cloudy, grey day. But I forgot how great that light could be, and she just shined.
GETTING to Know SIDNEY:

High School: Jefferson City High School  

Three words that describe me are shy, silly and sweet.

My perfect day would be a day on the lake. Swimsuit on, sun in my face, bumping around on a boat ride with my friends.

Ryan | Class of 2018

Sharks don’t care that it’s Monday. They’re up early chasing stuff, biting things, letting everyone know they’re a freaking shark.

RYAN, you are such a great sport (no pun intended) for putting up with my lack of football knowledge and being so NICE to work with. Thank you Matt for knowing about EVERY sport and always being the best. Liana, it took a little longer but we did it! Thank you for choosing 2Rtist Photography! ENJOY this year and your photo memories. xo Ren

A day without laughter is a day wasted. 
It was another very hot and humid day in Missouri. EMILY, one of our 2018 senior reps, kept her cool the whole time.
