Behind the Scenes Senior Portrait - Kade Herndon | Emily McGonigle Photography

As you may have noticed, I've been particularly terrible at keeping up with my blog and social media accounts. (I know, I know, I keep saying that -- IT'S TRUE THOUGH). This is entirely due to having left my day job in May and getting readjusted with my new work/life balance (which you would THINK means I have MORE time to blog and dedicate effort to social media, but surprisingly, it meant the opposite. 😅)

ANYWAY... my lovely intern, Kyli Barr, took some BTS photos for me of one of my client's senior portrait sessions. She's an aspiring photographer (duh, that's why she's my intern), so I gave her an assignment to take photos and write a BTS blog for me. She's had this written and ready to go since September 5th, but I'm just now getting around to posting it. Still... I wanted it to be seen.

So, enjoy this blog post written, laid out, and photographed by Kyli Barr! :)




Hey guys! Hope y'all had a great weekend, I'm Kyli Barr, Emily's guest blogger! Ive been her intern over the past couple of months, as well as one of her senior models!

A couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of working with Kade Herndon, one of Emily's senior models! We used our girl, Kenzie Leath for hair and makeup! 



For Kade's Senior Portrait shoot, we took the grand tour of Franklin! Starting in Downtown Franklin for some urban shots, moving to Pinkerton, and ending our day at the Baseball fields!

We had a great time on Kade's session. His mom tagged along, who was a pleasure to sit and chat with during some down time. She was a delight! 


Ending our day on the fields was a lot of fun, we got to see Kade in his element. 

Me too, Kenzie, me too.

Me too, Kenzie, me too.



Great job Kyli! This kid is doing things, I'm telling you. She just picked up her first camera while interning with me and she's already taking off. Check her out at and watch her grow into an awesome artist of her own!

And of course, I didn't forget... the traditional "end of the BTS blog post sneak peek photo":
