There's so much I could say about Taylor but I know she's dying for her sneak peek so I'll save (most of) it for the final post. But let me just tell you that she's one of the most amazing girls I've ever photographed. She's a girl with a vision. She knows what she wants. She's got what it takes to make things happen and I simply adore her.
And I was so excited when she came to me with the idea to shoot at the soccer field, but put her own spin on things. If ever a senior embodied my tag line of "be original. be true. be you." it would be Taylor.
Taylor is one of our 2012 Senior Spokesmodels. If you're a 2012 or even 2013 senior ask Taylor how you can save on your own senior portrait session.
I met Alexis at the grand opening party at Stem and I immediately knew I wanted to photograph her. She's got such a beautiful smile and it's simply contagious. Shooting her senior portraits was beyond fun. Her mom and sister (who she's very close with) tagged along and we even snuck in a family session at the end. Here are a few sneak peeks from our fabulous day together!
And her sister Brittany was more than happy to jump in (literally) for a few photos herself! Hopefully I'll be shooting Brittany's senior portraits next year.
By the end of the day my cheeks actually hurt from smiling so much. And that's never a bad thing! Love both of these beautiful girls and their family. More to come soon!
I just worked up a little sneak peek for Sam, our only male senior spokesmodel this year. Sam is a super cool guy. He's confident, talented and adventurous. And even better - he's super comfortable in front of the camera, which made my job so easy.
Check out a few of my favorite shots.
We're still booking seniors from the Class of 2012, but call soon as fall dates are booking up quickly. I've been shooting like crazy lately. More sneak peeks to come soon!
Last year I shot Katie...and I just realized I never blogged her session! You can check it out on our facebook page, though. She's since become one of my all-time favorite seniors. I've used her on business cards and in print ads. She's beyond fabulous!
Yesterday I shot her little brother, Jack, and two of his best friends. And, guess what? They totally rock, too! I rarely shoot senior boys - not because I don't want to...I just always seem to book girls. These guys were amazing!
Here's Jack with his killer blue eyes.
Thanks for a fun afternoon, guys. And for any teenage girls who may have driven by The Nelson yesterday afternoon while the boys were changing their shirts, you're welcome.
Hope you enjoy the sneak peek. More to come so stay tuned!
I was so honored that Sadye and her dad made the trip all the way from Lincoln, Nebraska for me to shoot her senior portraits. She showed up with an amazing wardrobe and a smile that could practically outshine the sun. Sadye doesn't take a bad photo. EVER! Need proof? I'll shut up and show you...
Sadye is such a natural. She's kind and she's caring. Her beauty comes from within.
I make a habit of asking client's to give me one word that describes their child. For Sadye, I didn't have to ask. I could see it the moment I met her. She's radiant and whatever the future holds for her, I have no doubt it will be absolutely amazing.
Mackenzie was one of two seniors to make the trip from Lincoln, Nebraska to shoot with me and I couldn't be more honored. She and her amazing mama were so much fun to spend an afternoon with. By the end of the day, they felt more less like clients and more like old friends.
Here are some (okay, a LOT) of my favorites from Mackenzie's session.
Her amazing mama, Kelly.
I can't even begin to tell you how badass Kelly is. She's beaten cancer, she rides a Harley and she's licensed to carry a gun. Rock on with your bad self, Kelly!
This was just a test shot after a makeup and hair change, but we loved it! Ended up being one of our favorites.
