Myya is such a cutie, and yes she is a 2014 graduating senior!  Myya is a little bit shy, but she just came alive in front of the camera. Her eyes just lit up when she saw herself after being made up by my MUA Angela.  It is so exciting watching the reaction of my senior girls after they get all dolled up.  Many of them don’t normally wear much make up, and they are always so surprised at just how awesome they look.  They are all so beautiful with or without the clothes, hair, and make up but it’s still nice to give them a taste of glam. Screaming CONGRATULATIONS Myya…I know you are going to have an awesome senior year! xoxo

So I can’t believe that this guy is a senior this year.  OMG…how time flies.  Tyler is the son of one of my best friends from childhood, and I  have watched him mature over the last 17 years.  He has turned into such a handsome young man.  Very athletic and talented.  I can’t wait to see where the next chapter of his life takes him.  Have an awesome senior year Tyler (Yellow Jackets – sting ‘em)!

This summer I was fortunate enough to photograph Carla and her sister Rachel (<<<click for blog post). All I can say is WOW!  These two sisters are seriously HAUTE! I had such an awesome time shooting the both of them.  Talk about making my job easy. I mean can these two ladies take a bad photo – uhm NO! I am so excited about this new area of my photography.  The SHINE (strong, happy, intelligent, naturally beautiful, elegant) project is very dear to my heart.  Showing women of all ages young and younger just how beautiful they really are is such an amazing feeling.  I hope to shoot many more beauty session over the next several months and years.  This is turning out to be one of my favorite genres of photography.  So check out Carla…she was born to SHINE.

Meet Melissa…she is my first senior from the class of 2014.  Woo Hoo!  Melissa has a very edgy and unique style but when I told her our first stop on the shoot would be this tree filled woodsy area, she brought out this very cute sun dress that showed her soft girly side.  She was so fun and so brave despite all the little critters that were out in this field.  We had a great shoot, and I got so many awesome photos of her that I couldn’t narrow it down to just a few.  So I decided to do two separate posts.  Enjoy and have a FANTABULOUS  senior year Lissa!

All I have to say about this session is WOW!!  I had such a great time shooting Denise.  She was so fun and relaxed in front of the camera.  Not to mention that she is very easy on the eyes.  Can you all believe that she was afraid that the photos would not turn out well?  She told me that she didn’t feel she was photogenic and that many of her friends and family felt the same way.  Well I beg to differ Ms. Lady.  You rocked your session, and I just love that cover girl smile.  Now let every body see you SHINE!

Several months ago I wrote a blog post featuring my dear friend Max (<< click here to read that post), a beautiful and confident mature women.  My plan was to periodically feature post of this type, but I never revisited the idea because I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with it.  Well God had planted a seed.  Even though I left it unattended, he continued to provide the sunshine and the rain so that the seed would grow.  I continued on this photography journey doing various photo shoots from newborns to retirement celebrations.  Some I loved but there were many that I dreaded.  I found that there were two types of shoots that excited me most.  One being high school senior girls and the other one being those with women in general.  So with that I have decided to focus my attention on those two genres of photography, high school senior girls and beauty/glamour portraits for women.

As women, young and old, many of us struggle with confidence and self esteem.  Comparing ourselves to the images we see in the media and what society has defined as the standard of beauty, we often find ourselves thinking that we are not pretty enough, skinny enough, tall enough, etc.  Well I would love to use my photography to show each and every one of you that you are good enough NOW – on this day, in that body, with those eyes and that smile.  It is your time to SHINE!

Let me introduce you to the stunning Mrs. Rachel

So a couple of weeks ago I blogged the photos from Tyler’s senior prom and promised I would post her senior portraits soon.  Well it’s going to take more than one post.  I love love love so many photos from her shoot, and I just can’t narrow it down to just a few.  So this will be a two part post.  Uhmm she’s my daughter and this is her GRADUATION month. I think she deserves 3 posts devoted to her (at least)…don’t you think?

Prom season is upon us, and I have been blessed enough to be able to photograph some of the young ladies on their very special night. Last weekend was Dani’s Sr. Prom, and although the weather was ugly and the rain was relentless, the pictures turned out gorgeous.   Just a few short weeks until graduation and what better way to start the count down than with a night of glitz and glamour!
