Here is the sneak peek of part 2 of Christian’s session! We went urban for this part and focused a lot on football since it’s such a huge part of his High School experience. Too much fun! I can’t tell you how much I enjoy photographing seniors – really, truly LOVE IT.

I will have to start off by showing some of the outtakes. I mean, seriously, look what I had to put up with.


But really, I’m not complaining – it made things interesting and really fun! He couldn’t have been a better model and the camera most definitely loves him. AND his mama! Check her out, too – she’s gawgeous!







Thanks again for putting up with me another day. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!!! Love you guys!

Gosh Christian was a blast to photograph! We’re doing a 2 part shoot, so this is the sneak peek to part 1. He’s a 2010 senior, plays both offense and defense on his varsity football team and enjoys swimming, camping, going to the lake, movies and of course, football. He has quite the sense of humor as well – I couldn’t tell if he was serious half the time!

Thank you for being such a good sport and for allowing me to be your photographer! See you tonight for part 2!

I love this shot – I tried some different processing for this one.





And of course he was taking frequent text breaks. HA!

Jovita: 05/09/2012The real studded diceratoons concerning the Uptown Astor have a sophisticated however fun search. The truth is, a few celebs including Heidi Klum happen to be seen making use of this extremely tote. This could be considered a small sudden taking into consideration most celebs can get on so as to waiting lists for many purses and also this one can possibly always be received for less than $300. Inside the significant class of jeremy scott Totes it really is great to see the for under $300 along with appropriate top quality to be donned simply by really profitable men and women. Free knowledge like this doesn't just help, it promote democracy. Thank you.

cheap insurance: Just cause it's simple doesn't mean it's not super helpful.

With fall sessions booking up quickly, I’m getting a lot of questions about what to wear for a session. I mean, that is probably the biggest thing people stress about and I completely understand that. Once it’s in print it’s, like, F.O.R.E.V.E.R and can never be changed, right? Well, there are several rules of thumb – no large logos, no loud prints, coordinating, but not matching, outfits, etc… Some people ignore these tips (please don’t HA!) and some get so concerned that they go uber-conservative (think white shirt and khakis). So, I thought I’d give you a visual to work with. Having a visual idea of what looks nice together helps a lot, at least for me – I’m a very visual person though.

Basically, pick a neutral (denim is also a neutral in this case) and then add a couple of accent colors that will compliment each other and use variations of those colors with the family members. Use the 3 color rule – it’s best to limit the bolder colors to 3.

Of course, when in doubt, just contact me, but hopefully these ideas will help you!

Sweet Caroline Photo: Wow! This is awesome!

eyeshadow cosmetics: Give thanks to you for such a helpful webpage. Where else could one get this sort of advice published in such a fantastic way? I have a business presentation that I am at the moment working on, and I have been on the look out for such info.

I love to do sessions with military families. It’s bittersweet when I know the soldier is about to deploy, though. But, thank God for them and what they do for us. These guys were so much fun to shoot and I had tons of fun with them! The kiddos were little hams for me. The older one is 8, Mr. ‘B’, and he was so quiet and reserved until I got the camera out and he started hamming it up for me! Too funny!

Thanks, ‘G’ family for coming out on Sunday! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.
