Hi everyone! I feel like it’s been ages since I last blogged and truth is, I’ve been a bit busy in my personal world. With this busyness, I have a bit of explaining to do. In June of 2014, I left my job as a hair stylist to pursue photography full time. Now this past June, […]

Senior

Good morning, everyone! Senior season is winding down for the class of 2018 this month as we’re seeing many of our girls graduate. I’ve been a little torn with what to post lately because I have a lot of material on the blogging block, but I figured it had been awhile since I had shared […]

Hope everyone is enjoying the weather this week, Summer has apparently arrived. Over the weekend we had the pleasure of photographing Courtney and Zack’s Cinco De Mayo wedding (it’s so amazing, cannot wait to share) but before that, I wanted to share a really cool idea that Courtney and I came up with prior to […]

Ashley is so quirky and funny it would have been impossible not to have a blast shooting with her! I loved her bright outfits against the all the rural greenery, definitely made for a great contrast. We even took a few shots with her car.

Happy Tuesday! We have so many amazing Senior sessions on the docket for blogging this month. Lindsay actually won her session with us by playing our 2018 Oscars game on Instagram! It was insanely windy that day so it did make for some pretty cool wind shots, in between almost getting blown away. Lindsay definitely […]
