Interview with Elana McDonald - Clay Center Community High - Class of 2018 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

 We are so excited to share Elana's session! She came to us all the way from Clay Center! We consider it an honor if someone is willing to come that distance to have portraits with us! Elana was fun to photograph. I loved her smile and laugh. She was extremely likable and very photogenic. Honestly one thing I really enjoyed about photographing her was that since she wasn't from the area, anywhere we went was new to her. That's a big deal to me. I love taking seniors to cool locations they are unfamiliar with. We had a wonderful afternoon for portraits. It was awesome. Here's a few of our favorites, the highlights. Hope you enjoy! Also at the end, there is a slideshow. Enjoy!
