Senior guys: I won't make you pose your hands! (Mostly.)

I have a son, so I totally understand when moms call me and say they want senior portraits for their son, but he is not excited about it. I actually love it because I have hopes that when my son is a senior he will love me enough to get his pictures taken.

Like this guy does! Even if senior portraits weren't his top pick for a morning activity, he seemed completely happy and comfortable and personable.

I try to make senior photography as easy and fast as possible when I know my client is only doing it out of love for his (or her) mom.

I won't ask you to pose your hands! (I should say mostly I won't, because I will give you a general idea of things to do with hands. But I promise I won't do any finicky hand posing if that is not your thing.)

This smart senior has a great range of future plan ideas. It was inspiring to meet him and get to know him a little bit!

Thanks so much - I hope the experience was much easier and more comfortable than you thought it would be!
If you are interested in senior portraits, I'd love to chat with you and discuss how to make yours the best they can be! We can meet in person or talk on the phone, or you can email me. I also have more information about my senior portraits on my website.

Beautiful early season senior session at the Biopark

I have many pictures to share from this lovely senior portrait session at the biopark. It's early in the season, but there is still green to be found (even outside of the greenhouse).

This beautiful girl was so confident and self-assured in front of the camera!

She has volunteered at the biopark in past summers, so this was an especially appropriate location for senior portraits.

The greenhouse tends to be the best place in town for winter portraits. Where else can you see such beautiful plants and flowers?

I love including talents, hobbies, and anything high school seniors love in their portraits! What could be more fun than a ukulele?

I also had a chance to catch  her at the first track and field meet of the season. I really enjoyed watching her throw the javelin! She did really well!

I loved getting to meet this smart and successful senior girl! Her easy confidence made senior portraits easy and comfortable. Best wishes to her with all her exciting plans!

It's a cake smash! Watch the frosting fly!

I am ALWAYS ready for a cake smash portrait session. This little guy was about to turn 1 year old, and I haven't seen such cake-eating joy in a long time!

We started out with a few clean portraits...

And then the real fun began. He was a natural.

His mom made this really cute Mickey cake, I was impressed.

My favorite is when feet get involved. Mmmmm.

Cake smash baby portraits are always fun. But this darling little guy was 100% happy to play with cake, which made it extra fun!

He didn't mind sticky fingers or toes, and actually wanted to eat the cake! (This is not always true.)

Here's my favorite. What a lovely moment!

And you can always tell when a cake smash session is over... sometimes it ends in tears, and sometimes it ends when the baby leaves the scene. No tears today!

Thanks so much to my friend for bringing me her sweet baby for his one year old portraits!

I have a bunch more baby photography, along with some info on my baby plan options, on this blog page - check it out!

I offer four different options for baby photography collections. If you are interested for yourself, or if you have a friend or family member you might like to gift a collection to, I have an online magazine with more information that you might like to see. You can send me your email address below and I will email you a link right away.
