Today’s submission is from Stacey of Stacey Dershem Photography located in Wichita, KS!
Here is what Stacey had to say about the session: “Evan is a Senior at Wichita Maize South High School. When we met to plan his session, he had one request – I want to feature my (new to me) Mustang! I’d never done a senior session with a car before, so I couldn’t wait! I chose our grungy but lovely Old Town Wichita area for the session, as I knew the urban textures and colors would be a perfect backdrop to highlight Evan and his car. When Evan and his Mom met me for the session, it was 106 degrees outside. No kidding – welcome to Kansas in the summer! Evan’s Mom had outdone herself on wardrobe; Evan had 7 different outfits for us to use. (Evan’s Mom Susan said she’d never ironed so much in her LIFE!) I used some of Old Town’s fun art and architecture like the “William Shakespeare” graffiti wall, the old Wichita train station with it’s famous “Wichita” endpost, and my personal favorite, a regular old downtown parking garage that has amazing lines. When we were running around transitioning to a new location, Evan’s car-loving eye caught a Corvette in a parking lot and mentioned that it would be cool to have his photo taken with a car like that, so we did! I edited the owner’s tag out and replaced it with Evan 2013 to personalize the shot. Evan was an awesome subject, even in the face-melting Kansas heat, and we all loved how the images turned out!”

Evan has 7 cool outfits for his photoshoot (a session record for me to shoot in 2 hours!). Most of the clothes were from Rue 21
I love this Stacey!
