Last week I shot my first real session in over a year. The only reason I ever stepped behind the camera many years ago was to have a creative outlet and at some point over ten years I lost my passion. I had begun to dread picking up my camera. Then last spring COVID-19 hit. […]

I love when seniors have a vision for their session.  Hannah from Capital High School knew she wanted to incorporate her violin plus have a very outdoorsy backdrop for her mini session. When I suggested we head to a very small spot in Coonskin Park to capture her session she looked doubtful. I knew the […]

The longer I am a photographer the less first I have but Olivia from Winfield High session brought with it a new first. The day of her session was extremely hot with zero chance of rain. It rained so hard that everything was soaked and the humidity was extreme. Typically a photographer is able to […]

I absolutely love to photograph red heads like Grace from Sissonville High School. During the session inevitably I’ll end up telling a story about my own little red head at home and my client’s mom will declare that she did the same thing at my daughter’s age. It’s as though red heads share certain personality […]

Just as the leaves were changing I met up with Hannah from Cross Lanes Christian School.  It’s truly not every day that I find someone that is completely photogenic but Hannah was one of those people.  Her style combined with absolutely stunning beauty made her one of the easiest senior sessions I photographed this year. […]

We started Nitro High School senior Madison’s senior sessions the end of last summer when it was sunny, happy and the year seemed like it held nothing but possibilities. We excitedly discussed how her prom dress would look and where we’d go for pictures in the spring.  Little did we know the spring would not […]

I have a confession: When things get busy I put blogging on the back burner.  My clients love to see their images featured on the blog but they love a fun session and fast turnaround even more.  While making a blog list, I realized I had missed quite a few sessions.  This absolutely stunning session […]

Fall is both a blessing and a curse for photographers.  Past clients along with new faces love to get new family photos as the weather starts to turn.  It’s a very busy time.  The downfall is we often run out of time to share these gorgeous photographs with you until later in the winter.  Hello, […]
