When asked about her senior session, Hailie replied, "I love how open Karen was for what I thought would be good photos. If I had ideas for poses or something she was completely down for it. I loved how personal it was; it wasn't just taking pictures, moving to the next location, and awkwardness in between. I was able to talk with her the entire time and discuss why I wanted certain colors or places in my pictures. Overall, she was very open and made me feel more comfortable in front of the camera because I was comfortable with her first."
