BEAUTIFUL Senior {Reidland High School}

I've been missing for almost a month...and I can't believe it! My calendar indicates that this blog will be hoppin' in the weeks to come if I can keep up with everything on my plate!

Since my blog has been feeling neglected, I thought we needed a supersized post of a beautiful senior girl! This just happens to be a friend of ours and I couldn't wait to focus my camera on her. We met up on Monday evening to gorgeous light and a breezy evening. What could be better?

She had made fabulous clothes choices and I enjoyed traipsing all over town with her. Isn't she beautiful?

The next two are similar but STUNNING to me...I had to post both!

She was up for anything and this turned out to be a favorite!

A dress and location change = more beautiful images.

She has cheered for MANY years so we had to get a few in her uniform!

Some more of my favorites from the night....I am not good at picking one favorite so here are two more that caught my breath as I scrolled through to find a few for the blog.

It's so fun to capture someone I know already because I really get the chance to bring out their personality. This caring, sweet girl has so much going for her. I can't wait to see what she decides to do next!

Thanks again for trusting me with your senior photography!

Vintage and the Vineyard

I'm waiting on a few friends to arrive for lunch and catching up but I can't resist posting one image from my session this morning. This family has been precious to us for several years. We photographed their maternity session in March and the newborn session in May. Here we are at 3 months and I just love their home and land. Stephen has a vineyard on their property and the grapes are just gorgeous right now. We just HAD to go out and photograph this beauty in the vineyards that are just brimming with grapes. The outfit that she had worked so well with it and to me it has a vintage feel to it. I wish I could find a shirt my size in the fabric because I can't stop thinking about how perfect it was. If you ever need some local wine make sure to call them up.

Isn't this the sweetest thing ever????

A Few Favs

I've been working on this session and wanted to share a few more of my favorites. Despite a hot evening we are able to capture great images. Don't let the heat keep you from scheduling a session if you are thinking about needing to update your family portraits!

There is just something about this image that keeps me coming back. His eyes aren't open but that's part of the intrigue for me. He looks so happy and at peace and it makes me smile EVERYTIME I see it!

Love me a momma + son picture. Especially when we capture the relationship like the image below. I can just see the love oozing from these two. Makes my heart happy. :)
