Senior Session at Scully Mansion

Just outside Lincoln city limits sits a true country manor, Scully mansion. Tom Scully and his wife, Violet, built this mansion just before World War II when his family was one of the biggest landowners in all of Illinois. The Scully family was living in France at the time and the Germans were invading France so they moved to America. They had a huge farm here and the Scully family decided they wanted to build a colonial cottage. Violet Scully drew up some sketches of what she wanted the home to look like and there it stands today. The house is absolutely stunning, completely with fields, wooden barn, picture-perfect landscape, pond with a fountain, perfectly groomed shrubbery and more. This place was immaculate.

This was the perfect location for an AMAZING senior session to happen. Ariana Spencer has such an amazing sense of style... I knew her outfits would not disappoint. The tones and colors she selected could not have been better! It was a gorgeous day with the most wonderful light... we got so lucky!

Ariana is so sweet and was a natural in front of the camera. A true model, I tell you! Right now Ariana is finishing up her senior year at Lincoln Community High School but her plans for the future are impressive. I'm excited to see where her life takes her and honored to have photographed such a beautiful girl, inside and out. Enjoy some of our favorites from her senior session!
