Senior Portraits

As we near the end of the school year and my little one is finishing up Kindergarten to head to first grade it is a nostalgic time. I generally have a more "live in the moment attitude" but lately I feel like my littlest is just getting too big too fast, I guess they both are. That's why taking photos and capturing them at this place in this time is so treasured to me. Senior portraits are such fun for this reason. This moment in their lives is so momentous, you can feel the energy, excitement and slight apprehension as they make that jump from teenagers at home to venturing out on their own. After only spending a little bit of time with this sweet senior I know she will gracefully make that transition. Cheers to you Kelly!



Class of 2012

I had the pleasure of meeting Emily to take her senior photos a couple of weeks ago. I love senior pictures, such a special time to capture and it is fun to get creative and try out a bunch of different poses, props, and outfits. Emily's interests include travel (me too!), reading and a great collection of Chuck Taylor's so we represented each of these throughout the shoot. Meeting such a sweet, level headed teenager makes me a little less anxious about when my two girls grow up!

Emily loves to read...upside down.

I love it when I thrown out an idea like "how about a wonder woman twirl?", and I get a "sure"! Look at that gorgeous hair!

Happy Travels to you Emily! I hope your senior year is a fantastic one.

Senior Pictures

I did this shoot a couple of weeks ago and I am proud to say it was one of the most fun photo shoots I have done to date. I have known Hannah a long time and in fact she caught the bouquet at my wedding nine years ago. Thankfully she didn't run off and get married at the age of 9!  We ventured through the mud and reeds and our boots got grossly muddy, but we both had a blast. Hannah is venturing off to college next year and what an exciting time to document!

Our first shot - so pretty!

Her beautiful hair against the reeds, love the colors.

Imitating my senior pic pose:

When your subject is beautiful, creative, adventurous and just a tad silly it makes capturing some great photos such fun. Thank you Hannah and good luck at school - you are going to love it.
