Wow, it must be the end of the world because I actually blogged!! Let me tell you guys, those of you who have been hustling photography part-time while also having a full-time job, I truly don’t know how you’ve done it. It’s been a serious moment since I have had the time or energy to […]

I have known Alison for a long time — I photographed her and her sisters as kids and did Senior photos for her oldest sister Emily a few years back. She has the kind of smile that just completely lights up a room, and you can feel that energy just illuminate from her photos.

Mikaela was a joy to photograph. She was so spunky and full of life — and with awesome taste in books may I add! During the second half of her session, we witnessed hundreds of butterflies at Chatham Manor. We ended with a few “very October appropriate” shots near the old corn stalks.

So here we are, my favorite shoot of the year! This is the fifth year we have done a Halloween shoot, which is insane. It doesn’t feel like five years has gone by since our first one. This year while down in Nola, I felt inspired by the cultural icon that is Marie Laveau. The […]

Enjoying this August downtime before Senior season heats up next month. Today I’m sharing Sarah’s session from a few months back. Sarah is also a photographer and will be attending VCU this year to study photography. She’s also the only Senior to date to ever have a rainbow in her photos!

Oh Trinity, probably one of the most rescheduled Senior sessions we’ve had yet! It seemed like every time we planned her session, rain would come and soak everything into a sopping wet mess. After about six (??) reschedules, we finally came into some sunshine. We did end up with some pretty high winds, but it […]

Trying to keep up with all of the amazing Senior shoots we did at the beginning of this Summer. Today, I’m sharing Arizona’s session. This was really fun because I also photographed her sister Riley a few years back as well. We got the epitome of amazing lighting for this session, even though it was […]

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 […]

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 […]
