John and I met when we were in our mid 20's, although neither one of us knew what the future would hold at the time! My best friend and I used to say, "whoever marries that guy would be one lucky girl!" God has such a sense of humor because now, John is my best friend and I AM one lucky lady!
John and I have one super kiddo! The Lord blessed us with an amazing little guy after 3 years of trying, a miscarriage, and many fertility treatments. He is a gift of the Lord...and you can't tell me differently. He brings such joy and energy to our house!
If I could hook up an IV with coffee in it...I just might! No, not really. But if you want to get to know me, just ask me over for coffee. I'm always up for a cup. I think coffee has healing powers for the heart! Many GREAT conversations happen over coffee!
I love photographing seniors because it gives me the opportunity to serve and love the people who are right on the brink of something new, exciting, and even a little bit scary. It’s such a joyful and EXCITING time in your life, but I totally understand how overwhelming the entire process can be! I'm here for you! Its my job to help you feel beautiful and confident in front of the camera. You don't need to have "model" experience or even like to have your picture taken! I know how to pose and prompt to get those beautiful natural smiles! So pressure is off you. You just come and enjoy! This season of you life is such a blessing to not only you, but to your parents. You've worked hard, they've worked hard, not its time to celebrate! Your Senior session is just the beginning of your next step! I'm here to help and encourage you through the process!
Freebies to help create a killer Senior Session!
In all our packages:
My heart behind capturing your senior year is this: I want to make you feel beautiful, I want to make the process fun and I want to make sharing your images EASY. So, that’s why all of my senior packages include access to an online digital gallery where you can easily download, share and print all of your high resolution digital files. No hidden fees, no required purchase minimums and no secrets. Plus, you can post a new #seniorsunday on Insta each and every week.
Our most popular session includes:
All Inclusive Senior Session
2 personal 1.5 Hour Senior Sessions (can be split between seasons)
Participation in All Spokesmodel Photoshoots
ALL Social Media Images from every session
A major perk of being a Spokesmodel besides getting ALL the bonus styled shoots throughout the year. You receive all of your digital images from each of our styled sessions together! You also receive my longest payment plan option available only to spokesmodels! That means you will get 9 months to pay off your senior images!
If you're like every other senior, you're probably a little nervous thinking about being in front of the camera... I mean, you're not used to having a big black box pointed at you, am I right?! Even *I* get nervous when I'm having photos done!!
It's COMPLETELY normal to feel a little silly when being posed, but I want to encourage you to just relax and have a good time. You don't need to have "model" experience or even like to have your picture taken! I know how to pose and prompt to get those beautiful natural smiles! So pressure is off you! Some prompts I give you both might seem a little silly at first, but TRUST ME, they create some legit magic. (this pose to the right...the senior looked at me like I was nuts...turned out to be one of her favorites!!)
All you have to do is show up and be yourself... easy, right?! I'll take care of the rest and we're going to have a lot of FUN!
TIPS & TRICKS FOR SUCCESS
BE ON TIME: We typically plan your start time based on sunset time. If you are late, it cuts into the sunlight we have available! No one wants dark photos, so arriving on time will ensure we have gorgeous light to work with for your whole shoot! :)
BRINGING THE DOG: I adore ALL the cute pups, so naturally, I LOVE it when you bring them along! The best way to include them is to have someone else bring your dog during the last 15 minutes of your session, or choose a session location that is less than 5 minutes away from your home. Contact me so we can work out the details!
CLEAN THE RING: If you bring your class ring, make sure it is clean! I'd love to grab a few up close shots of just your ring while you change outfits! Cleaning it will ensure it's nice and sparkly for photos!
EMPTY YOUR POCKETS: Especially for guys, make sure you don't have anything in your pockets! I am more than happy to store phones and keys in my bag, or ladies, you can bring along a little purse to keep everything in.
RELAX! You don’t have to be a pro at this! I’m going to help you along the way and it’s going to be a blast! I don't expect anything from you. Enjoy this time and make a date out of it! Plan something fun or go to dinner afterwards and celebrate!!
GET YOUR NAILS DONE: Make sure your nails are freshly painted, or spoil yourself with a trip to the salon! Chipped nails will be noticeable in your photos. Neutral colors and pastels photograph beautifully and will match any outfit!
BRING COMFY SHOES: If you're wearing heels, bring a pair of flip flops or comfortable shoes to walk from spot to spot. Your feet will thank me later!
MAKE UP: Ask about getting hooked up with a professional make-up artist for your session. (Availability varies, Additional charge)
HOW MANY OUTFITS? The number of outfits is up to you...I recommend three! One outfit that you are totally comfortable in. The one that says, "This is me!" Think casual. Another one that is dressier, maybe even a formal for girls or a suit/jacket and tie for guys. And the third, the outfit that you just "rock it" in. You know that one that makes you feel like a million bucks! Also, a little tip: Let mom pick out one outfit! Trust me!
CHOOSING COLORS: When choosing colors for your outfits, I recommend selecting lighter tones and more muted shades. Avoid ultra-bright, bold colors, and heavy patterns. Doing this will help bring all the attention to your face and let the eye focus on you and how beautiful you are. Soft pinks, muted blues, and light neutrals like heather gray, creams, leather brown and white all work wonderfully. (check out these Pinterest Boards)
DRESS IT UP: Have you ever wanted to rock a sequin dress, or a long flowy maxi dress? Maybe you've dreamed of wearing a floral crown, or wearing a tulle skirt. THIS is your chance! Ladies, especially for your dressy outfit, I typically recommend a long, flowy A line dress that cinches at the waist. This is typically most flattering on most body types! For the guys, opt for a suit or nice pants and a suit jacket with a button down for your fancy outfit.
FLATTER YOUR FEATURES: Ladies, keep in mind which features you want to flatter and which features you want to hide when picking outfits! For example, if you want to hide your arms, choose a top with sleeves and skip the spaghetti straps. If you want to minimize your bust, choose a dress with a higher neckline and skip the strapless dress. If you opt for a low cut dress, it will minimize the amount of angles I can shoot!
SKIP THE SPRAY TAN: Even though it seems counter intuitive, I highly recommend skipping a spray tan altogether, even if it's a few days out from your session. Spray tans tend to photograph more orange than they appear and will make you appear more orange than tan!
