I'll never forget Riley's session. Not for as long as I live. You know why? Because a raw chicken LITERALLY fell from the sky. Literally.
I hold my breath when a redhead walks into the studio. Like...I don't get excited about TOO many things but when I know I'm going to get to photograph a redhead....whoa. Give me space for my happy dance!
Smile, laugh, share all your joy, Hailey. You're going places in this world. Enjoy it!

Elizabeth, thank you for being so fun to photograph. I started that day with low energy and, if I'm being honest, I was a little grumpy about all the things I had on my plate. When I started photographing you, all of the stress just melted away and I couldn't stop giggling. You are so sweet!
She couldn't be more different. More unique.
I mean, who can rock a Harry Potter wand for their Seniors? This girl. Obviously.

Coral was super sweet and we had so much fun on her session. She brought her best friend and her mom and had all of the locations for her session kicked out in advance. I love it when my girls choose their own locations because it makes the session so much more personal to them. Her session was so ethereal and she reminds me of a fairy princess. The lighting was perfect, the weather was perfect, her hair was perfect, her outfits were perfect, her smile was perfect. My goodness... She. Is. Perfect.

Martha was a little nervous when she first came to her session. However, she had no reason to be! She's so beautiful and she did great! My assistant couldn't make it so it was just her and me and we had tons of fun.
Harleigh. She was so natural in front of the camera and had a specific vision for this session (Pinterest board included), which I loved! Her outfits were adorable and it was just an all-around great shoot!
Cheyenne is in my home group at church and I've known her for a couple of years. She's quiet but intense when she gets passionate about something. She shaved half her head and looks like a total rock-star yet she has this softness about her too. We had so much fun during our session!
Love this lady!
Jesslyn was one of my junior models last year. She has such a kind heart. The natural blonde color of her hair is a color I could only ever dream of having and her legs are longer than my entire body! She's a very talented competitive Irish Dancer. Her boyfriend and grandmother (most hip grandma you've ever met) came along for the session and it was a blast! So cute! Jesslyn is such a gem and SUCH a pleasure to photograph.
Jordan's session was incredibly enjoyable. We had fun playing in the leaves and enjoying the Fall colors! Just a few years ago I got to shoot Jordan's brother Lane's senior session too. They are both so wonderful!
Maddie is such a joy to work with. I have been photographing her family for the past 5 or 6 years. I also photographed her brother Brick's senior photos! Maddie is a doll and has this quirky little dance that is so cute to shoot.
Wyatt's session turned in to a fun family affair. His mom, dad, brother, and aunt came to join him. We drove up to the Ochocos where he spends a lot of time hunting and fishing. We took some portraits in an old cabin where his father used to play as a kid. How so very special!
I met Jade at the gym a few months ago when I needed a model for a personal project. My original model couldn't make it to the shoot last minute, so I asked Jade (still in her gym clothes) and she agreed! We had tons of fun and just recently I got to take her senior photos! Isn't she just gorgeous?
A senior in high school and a senior in college, these sweet sisters got to take their senior portraits together! Oh, what a special session!
Oh, Maggie. Or should I say Carrie Underwood? We had so much fun on your session, sipping coffee and dancing in the meadow!
I remember when I got a call from the counselor at the school. "I have a girl that would be a fantastic intern for you. Are you interested?" I didn't really want to do it right away. I had a string of "interns" who were unreliable and not very motivated. I was leery, but did it anyway.
Then... Kylla. One of the best things to ever happen to me. Not only has she been a tremendous help to me and my business over the last two years, but she has taught me so much. She's taught me so much about myself, how to teach, how to share, how to learn, and how to love.
And I do. I love this little firecracker. I can't wait to see what she does with the rest of her life now that she is moving on.
I love you, Kylla.
We had so much fun on this shoot. Mikayla's beautiful smile was so contagious!
We loved having Cole hang out with us during the session. What a sweet couple!
