Bardstown Kentucky Fall Senior Session | Selena Ruiz

Selena Ruiz's Fall Senior Session in Bardstown, KY / Kentucky Senior Photographer Rebecca Beatty


Talk about a gorgeous day plus a gorgeous senior plus so many GORGEOUS senior pictures! Selena had contact me via instagram about being the one to capture her senior pictures. I was excited, like I normally am however Selena has such a unique personality! So when she mentioned shooting at some similar places that I have already shot at, I tried my best to change her mind!

And I was successful!!

Sure we shot at downtown Bardstown where I have shot a few senior portraits, but we tried new spots that I over looked before. Including going to an open lot that had the perfect view of the sunset!

If you don't believe me, then keep scrolling and check out Selena's amazing session! <3

Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook are my three regular apps where I interact with most of my clients and where I actually book a majority of my clients. However, I always do get one or two emails asking about senior pictures and that does make me curious if it's a scam or if it's real!

I can't tell you how real Abbie is and how much fun she is! It's so hard to tell through email how someone's personality is, so when I got to meet Abbie I was so thrilled that she was bubbly and giggly! Plus I love gingers! <3

We shot at Bernheim Forest in Clermont, KY which is a popular place for most of my fall sessions! The bright leaves, the lakes, even the evil geese are pretty until they start hissing lol. Luckily! On Abbie's senior session date we saw ZERO geese and found tons of beautiful golden light!

Check out Abbie's fall senior session below! And make sure to leave her some love!

Lindsey Boblitt's Fall Senior Session in Bardstown, KY / Kentucky Senior Photographer Rebecca Beatty


I can not express how much I loved working with Lindsey!! She had this amazing idea of a new location that I actually haven't shot at before and I'm so glad we did!

As I mentioned, I have never shot at Jim Beam before, but Lindsey was so excited to shoot there, that I couldn't tell her no! And besides, I was excited myself! Even though the day was a bit cold, Lindsey worked like a PRO! I can't explain just how all of her outfits were coordinated with the locations and they made her personality shine!

And let's not forget how supportive her boyfriend was who came to the session too! Even jumped in on a few of the pictures! ;)

Check out why I love this session so much by scrolling down below and leaving Lindsey some love!

Kalei Cox's Fall Senior Session in Lebanon, KY / Kentucky Senior Photographer Rebecca Beatty


There's a lot I can say about this firey red head. From her personality, to her 'I can't take a serious picture to save my life' face, or the way she doesn't understand what 'No Kalei we can't do that cause it's not ours'.

But overall it's always a blast working with this young lady! Even though a normal session takes about two hours tops, I feel like Kalei's takes three...maybe four lol. But it's literally because we have fun! We laugh, we talk, we shoot, and that's the experience I try to offer with all my seniors! Even if it's just a small mini session, I want them leaving smiling and happy. Not "thank God it's over"!

If you want to see by what I mean when I say having a fun experience, then scroll down and check out Kaeli's Fall Senior Session!

Brittany + Chris' Sweetheart Session in Lexington, KY / Kentucky Engagement Photographer Rebecca Beatty


August 11th is going to be an amazing day for Brittany+Chris! With the idea of a small and traditional ceremony, I get to witness and be a part of them tying the knot! I first met Brittany during my first ever bridal show and I was so happy that she saw through my nerves and wanted to book me to be a part of her special day!

Even with a minor date change, I'm not sure who is more excited for this day! Brittany + Chris or me!! Simple and traditional are some of my favorite weddings!! If you're like me and excited to see their sweetheart pictures, then scroll down below and check it out!

Andrea + Thomas' Lexington Kentucky Wedding/ Local and Destination Wedding Photographer Rebecca Beatty


I first met Andrea back during one of first weddings in Bardstown! She was there doing hair and makeup and she had actually messaged me the night before the bride's day asking about my pricing!

We talked about our love for the Mario Brothers (Nitendo '64 was the best days of my life), our passion for Game of Thrones (let's be real, Khal Drogo got killed off WAY to quick!) and overall just what exactly she was looking for on her big day!

Fast forward to this past November and it was actually one of my more relaxed weddings. Yes it was beautiful, but what made it beautiful was two people who love each other so much actually got to have a big celebration with the people they loved the most.

That's what, to me, makes weddings the best. Instead of thinking you have to throw a party bigger than Beyonce's performance at the Super Bowl, you instead celebrate the reason on why you're both here in the first place. Because you can't live without the other person.

Andrea + Thomas thank y'all so much for letting me be a part of your special day! I hope God blesses y'all with many years to come! <3

Olivia Edlin's Fall Senior Session in Bardstown, KY / Kentucky Senior Photographer Rebecca Beatty


I know for a fact during my years of high school, I did not look as gorgeous as any of these seniors I have had the pleasure of working with!

Speaking of gorgeous seniors, Olivia was such a blast to work with! Her outfit choices were so different and unique that each one stood out with the locations we selected! I love using similar locations with different seniors just to see how each senior stands out or reacts to it!

I can't express how much I loved the last location that Olivia and I went too! Believe it or not, it's a little piece of land on the side of the road.

And yes, I always find off the road places for pictures lol.

But it was just too pretty to past up! When the sun hit it just right it looks like a desert and us Kentucky girls don't see deserts alot in our small towns, so when the opportunity arrives, we jump on it!

Check out Olivia's beautiful fall session with an urban and rustic feel, down below!!

I'm getting closer to finally being able to say "I'M CAUGHT UP!!" Until then let's talk about this sudden baby boom that I have noticed all over social media!!

There's so many expecting mothers that it's a beautiful thing! And it also means I need to order new dresses!!

Speaking of expecting mothers, by the time this blog is posted Amelia will have already given birth to her bouncing little baby boy and let me just tell you HE'S. A. DOLL!!! I can see both his parents features in that adorable little face!!

But before he was born, I had the pleasure of capturing the moments of both Amelia and Caleb waiting on him. So if you love these two and loved their sneak peek maternity pictures, then check out all of my favorites from their session!

Madison + William's Sweetheart Session in Louisville, KY / Kentucky Engagement Photographer Rebecca Beatty


I've had the best times being a part of the Diamond Rings and Pretty Things Bridal Show that is normally held in Lexington, Kentucky. You meet some many amazing vendors and the brides that I have gotten to talk to really have a clear idea on what they're wanting their wedding to be like and plus, I love being able to watch how brides react to my work! That's such a great feeling!

But there is one downside to participating in a bridal show, you don't always get to speak to every single bride that walks through the door. Some brides may already have a photographer, so why would they stop and listen to me talk about my work? But then again there's some brides who feel so overwhelm with all the booths, all the information, that they just don't get to go to every single booth. And with that happening, I don't get to talk to them.

That actually happened with Madison + William. They came to one of the bridal shows that I was a participate in and we actually didn't get to speak! However I sent out an email and after they read it we was in contact!

Just talking to them through email and then meeting in person, I knew we was going to have such an amazing connection! And during their sweetheart session, IT WAS JUST THAT. Amazing! Fun! Natural! Plus! They took me to a spot that I have literally been looking for, for almost a year and it's only been 10 minutes away from my normal shooting spots, *le sigh*.

But enough of my chit chat! If you want to see all the fun we had during this sweetheart session scroll on down below!

Whenever Fall approaches, I always feel that this is one of the buiest times of the years and during this time I always tell me clients one thing.

Fall season for photographers is like tax season for accountants.

We don't know what days off are, we try to help you out, as well as trying to play weather woman (especially if you live in Kentucky). But! One of the plus sides of a busy season is the people I get to meet!

This blog post I get to talk about meeting Cassidy and that adorable dachshund puppy of hers! <3 We had such a blast during her senior session -even when we was fighting off the rain-! Her personality shined through those storm clouds and we was able to capture some fun and natural senior pictures!

Scroll down below and check out how beautiful this Marion County Senior is on the inside and the outside!
