Senior Sneak Peek / Brianna

Meet Brianna!!  Brianna got my Senior Story Package (that is, her story of course.).  So we were able to go all out, and we did!!  Her sessions were held at multiple locations:  her yard and pond, her neighbor’s yard, my studio, and an urban location.  She was up for anything-and you can bet I always love that!  She is very into the arts, so she’s a girl I can relate to!:  She writes, she loves photography, she takes dance and boxing! We incorporated all of that in her shoots, and I am so happy with her collection of images. She is also part of the National Honor Society. (You go Girl!)

I don’t think Brianna has decided what to major in when she goes to school after graduation, but she’ll figure it out.  With her vast interest in the arts, and her out-going personality, I think it’s more a matter of narrowing down all of what she could do, than thinking of something.  She has a contemplative but determined spirit, and that can take a girl places!

I had a wicked hard time choosing images…..I wanted to keep the number down for the Sneak Peek, but I failed. And yet, there are more I want to go back and get. lol.  Oh well….this’ll do.

I just have to say here….this ‘boxer’s prayer’ shot above, popped into my head last minute, and I did it very spontaneously. I just love how it came out!  One of my top favorites of the season, for sure!

I hope you love your peek, Brianna!!

Have an amazing senior year!

Your future is all yours for the taking!

Find your dreams, and then go get’em, Girl!

Senior Sneak Peek / another Joseph!

This is my second ‘Joseph’ senior of the season, and he was great to work with.  Easy going and co-operative, which is really all I need, but he was charming and friendly too, which always makes for a fun shoot.

This was just a basic session, so there are not a ton of shots to begin with. I just grabbed a few to share.  He has a great smile, and gave me plenty of them!   But I like his simple, content look too.

His mom has hired me before.  I did her daughter (Joe’s sister) as a senior, last year, I believe? (I think it was last year, Hhmm.  I’m so tired. lol) We just used their own yard, just like last time. I love working with their wood pile!  I am also looking forward to photographing her grand-daughter come early summer when she turns 1 year old!

Joseph is in interested in becoming a technical engineer after he graduates!   Cool, huh? A



Hope you like your Sneak Peek, Joseph!

Enjoy your senior year!!

(I know I can call you Joe……..but I really like Joseph ; )

Senior Sneak Peek / Jessica

Here is another senior beauty, Jessica!  She comes from a great family, and I have done lots of work for them.  Jessica is one of 5 really great kids in her family.  I’ve been trying to remember just when it was, that I met their mother, because honestly, it seems like I’ve known her forever. I’ve done their family portrait, Jessica’s older sister’s senior photos, her older brother’s senior photos, and her older sister has also done some modeling work for me. And get this….the WHOLE FAMILY has dimples!!!    I am always smitten with dimples.  : )  I have enjoyed getting to know each child a little better, as they grow and become a senior.  THIS is Jessica’s year, and she was just awesome to photograph, work with and get to know better!

Track has been a big part of Jessica’s high school years, which I think is just such a cool sport. So for one of Jessica’s photo shoots, we went to her high school track! Lots of high school memories to hold onto there. That was a fun idea, and we got fun shots there.   We also went to a beautiful beach for an evening shoot, and had so many great little spots, that we all-too-soon found ourselves working against the dark that was quickly descending upon us! But we got some great stuff there though, too.

Lastly, we went to her Grandmother’s property, as we did with her brother for his senior year.  There is an AMAZING view there, as you’ll see in the last few photos.  I can’t gaze upon that view, and not think about how amazing God’s work is! Actually, I think of the same thing, with every baby, child and senior I photograph, and Jessica is no exception! (The dimples are just a bonus!)

After graduation, Jessica has plans to go into nursing, and hopes to find a college she can attend for her nursing education, that also has track!  Now there’s a girl who literally is on the right track! I know she has quite a bright and promising future ahead of her.

Her mother has been such a wonderful support of my business, and has also been the best at sending me referrals!  So they are rightfully getting spoiled here, with extra sneak peeks of just SOME of my favorites of Jessica! I hope you all love them as much as I do. Here she is!……….











Jessica — I hope you and your family love all of your images, as much as I do!  You were a lot of fun to work with, and so versatile!  Wishing you a wonderful senior year!!  You have such a determined spirit, and so much love and support in your family,  so I don’t think anyone can doubt you will make all of your dreams come true!  Thanks so much for working with me!!

To all the Peekers:  Please feel free to leave comments for Jessica!!  ;  )

Senior Sneak Peek / Stephanie

Meet Stephanie.  This girl was a ‘photographer’s dream’, to work with!   She’s not quite sure what wants to do next year after she graduates – which is ok!  Many young people don’t know, even once they are in college!  But she did share with me that ever since she was a little girl, she has wanted to be a model.  Well…..she can sure do that!  She is a NATURAL in front of a camera. She’s really got a feel for it, and she takes very little direction, very well.  As a photographer, she was so much fun for me to work with, because she was up for ANYTHING!  She wanted different than the typical senior photos, and I like to be creative and not be restrained by typical work, which would bore me to tears. So…..Stephanie and I were a TEAM! Yes, we were.  ; )

Stephanie is on a dance team, and at practices, she and her girlfriends on her team all love to wear crazy outfits to practice in together.  My goal, is to capture my seniors as who they really are, in  this milestone year of their life.  Take photos that are creative, and keep those memories that will become so treasured, very close.  So I was G A M E!   We got creative alright, with a mix of some beautiful traditionals too, and this is just a tiny little snippet of our sessions.  She’s got a big collection of lots of fabulous photos coming.  She was so much FUN!





Stephanie – I can’t WAIT for you to see the rest of your photos, just as soon as I finish the rest!  You’re a beauty, on the inside and out.  As you have a wonderful and memorable senior year, and think about what you want to do with your life, think BIG! Think about making a difference with your life!  You have so much to give to the world.  You are a gift to your family, friends, those who love you, and the WORLD.  (Not to mention to my portfolio!) There is just so much you CAN do.  So look into your heart, dream big…and then just go for it!
