It was a great kick off to the senior portrait season this week with this beauty from Heritage High School! This girl is such a sweetie & managed to look fresh and lovely throughout the session despite the sizzling hot temps we were dealing with. Maybe it’s her experience as a varsity cheerleader that gives her such grace under pressure!
Meet Tim. Funny and independent, Tim has a style that is all his own. From his swooping pompadour hairstyle to his slightly sardonic take on modern hipster style, Tim’s look is the perfect compliment to his bold, artistic personality. Continue reading →
Meet Jared. Tall and athletic, Jared has a long-and-lean look that cameras love. Add to that his fair skin, blue eyes and thick mane of wavy, reddish-brown hair and you have the perfect formula for some classic Irish good looks. Maybe that’s why I felt compelled to set my Ed Sheeran playlist to repeat while I was editing his photos. Somehow it just seemed appropriate… Continue reading →
Meet Maddie. Easy-going & personable, Maddie wins the award this year for the quickest turn around between the date she first contacted me and the date we did her senior session: one week! That is a rarity this time of year, but she was anxious to squeeze her session in before school started and I just happened to have a time slot open that fit into her schedule.

Being the ‘city slicker’ photographer I am, I can honestly say I’ve never photographed a horse in any of my portrait sessions. In fact I’ve hardly ever been around horses, except for a few touristy chuckwagon dinner excursions, which (let’s be honest here) hardly qualify as horseback riding at all. But I love a creative challenge, and so I happily took on this assignment. Continue reading →
Meet Sophia. Like a burst of sunshine this young beauty lights up a room with her sweet personality and beautiful smile. Equal parts rough-and-tumble athlete & fashionable girly-girl, Sophia wanted to play up her feminine side for her senior portraits. Continue reading →
So what do you do when you find out just days before your senior portrait session that the location you had so carefully chosen is CLOSED?! I don’t mean closed as in ‘never going to open again’, but closed as in ‘so very inconveniently (i.e. annoyingly) closed on the day you just happen to have chosen for your session’.
Bummer. BIG bummer. Especially when you are looking for a location that combines natural open fields, rustic barns, tennis courts, and a place to play the ukulele. That’s right, the ukulele.
