    Jake | 2015 Trico High School Senior

    18 September 2014

    I've had the best day. It started with me getting the shipment notice for my iPhone 6. Then I took "gender reveal" photos for a great couple. I also finished up a few things for a baby shower I'm throwing on Sunday. As I sit here in my office with my new candied caramel pecan candle burning, I get to do another great thing today… introduce you all to another great senior client!

    I want you all to meet Jake, a senior from Trico High School. He's such a charmer and my camera loved him! I met up with him and his mom, Leslie, in Campbell Hill and we discussed a few options on where to take Jake for his pictures. We decided a couple places in Campbell Hill, my aunt's farm and then the golf course. Jake brought lots of different outfits to choose from but I'm pretty sure we used them all LOL.  It was such a beautiful day considering we originally planned Jake's session for the weekend before. Rain cancelled that day but I always say that everything works out for the best… and it did. You couldn't have asked for a better day.

    I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Enjoy looking through my favorites from Jake's senior session.

    Brittney | 2015 Trico High School Senior

    17 September 2014

    It's been one of those days. I'll leave it at that and won't go into any details but I'm finally getting a chance to blog this wonderful senior session. I've been wanting to blog this session all day because it's fabulous. I want you all to meet Brittney, a senior from Trico High School. I met her in Sparta for her session and she was so nervous. She claimed she didn't take good pictures but come on, who really says that they take great photos unless they're a model or really in to themselves LOL. I knew deep down that she was just nervous when she said that and I knew I'd be able to get her comfortable in front of my camera. Turns out, I was right, and she ended up getting pretty comfortable and opened up to me. We had a great time and by the end of her session she was asking to do different poses and asking my opinion on photo ideas. It was really a fabulous time and I love when I can get people to open up around me. It's almost a challenge to see how fast I can get them to smile and be themselves and Brittney but by my new record.

    Brittney, I'm so happy with the way your photos turned out. Your personality and style showed through and I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do. Enjoy the rest of your senior year!


    Taylor | 2015 Pinckneyville High School Senior

    16 September 2014

    Meet Taylor, a sassy senior from Pinckneyville High School. I met with Taylor and her mom in Du Quoin last weekend and from the minute we started shooting I got this familiar feeling like I knew them or that I'd met them before. It turns out that Taylor is the cousin of one of the brides I had earlier this year! So from then on, we all got very comfortable and Taylor's session went smoothly.

    I asked Taylor to show me the outfits that she brought so I could get an idea on where I should take her. I do that for all my seniors, to get a plan for how the session will take place. I knew exactly where I'd take Taylor in a manner of like 5 seconds LOL. It was that easy. When I told her my ideas, all she says is, "Okay, I trust you!" So laid back LOL. She has such a fun style and I think these pictures show her personality well.

    Taylor, I hope you had just as much fun as I did. I love all of your pictures and I can't wait to see you in a few months when we take your basketball pictures. Enjoy looking at my favorites!
