The next senior up on the blog was a fun one!  Dani had a deluxe session (2 locations) for her senior session.  The first part of her session, she shared with her horses!  I don’t get many seniors with their horses, but whenever I do, I just love the photos.  Yes, the horses can be little stinkers at time, but it is totally worth it.  And Dani had 3 different horses for us to play with that day.  And then a 4th who desperately wanted to be in a photo too!  We had a great time, and the horses were so well behaved!  Then forward to the second part of her shoot – the beach!  We were a little concerned about it raining for our shoot, but then we totally lucked out and had one of the most beautiful sunrises I’ve had in a long time.  Beautiful morning, beautiful girl, beautiful photos!  Dani was up for anything, wether it be climbing or getting totally hit with the waves.  (Which by the way, she was so awesome!  She was able to keep her eyes open when the waves were coming right at her. Such a pro!).  I really enjoyed my time meeting and photographing her!

If you are a 2018 senior, you are almost out of time to get senior photos that you love!  Contact me to get your session date on the books!

Now onto sneak peeks!  Here are a couple from each of Dani’s locations:

Next senior up on the blog is Johnny!  The last time I photographed him, he was just a kid tagging along his big sister’s senior photo shoot.  Now it was his turn!  He chose the beach for his shoot.  It is early morning to do those beach shoots, but always worth it!  He is such a good kid, and we had a great time.  By the end, he was literally hanging off the pier (and yes, I had to include that as a little bonus sneak peek, because it makes me laugh).

Time is coming close to being up for the class of 2018 to get in for their senior photos before the craziness of prom and graduation kicks into high gear!  If you have been putting it off, time to get on the calendar!

Here are a few sneak peeks from Johnny’s shoot:

The next session up on the blog is a two-fer!  I met this sweet set of twins years ago, when their mom booked a family session.  I think they were in 5th grade at the time.  I was so honored that they wanted to come back to me this many years later for their senior photos!  Now getting to this day was challenging.  We had a couple of different reschedules due to our lovely hurricane season.  But then the waiting paid off.  We had an absolutely beautiful morning to shoot at the beach.  Yes, it is a pain to wake up so early to get ready and all the way out to the beach before sunrise, but then you get a gorgeous morning, and it all is worth it!  As a nice bonus, the waves were really kicking.  So Sloan got the crashing waves photos she wanted.

Now, as a notice to other seniors (class of 2018), if you are wanting senior photos done that are more YOU, and you aren’t on my calendar yet, NOW is the time!  Most seniors have their senior photos done before the end of the calendar year.  The reason is, the last half of the school year is crazy busy and it just flies by.  Before you know it, you are planning prom and grad parties, and you still haven’t had your portraits done yet!  I actually start NEXT year’s class in a couple of months.  Now don’t worry, I can still get you in, but I do need to get you on the schedule soon!  Email me, text me, call me, whatever.  Let’s start talking about YOUR senior photos!

Now, back to the twins!  Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

School is almost over, so that means it is time for the rising seniors to get their senior photos taken! Yes, you have to get your yearbook photos taken, but that is not what I am talking about. I’m talking about senior photos that are far more personal and fun! You pick the location, and bring several different outfits, and I’ll take care of the rest. We will have a lot of fun, and we will get a lot of beautiful photos to celebrate this important milestone in your life! I have many already on my calendar for the summer and early fall, but I do have some open dates left. If you have not yet gotten on my calendar, let me know so I can take care of that for you. Once school starts, your schedules get much more difficult (and we can only shoot on weekends then!). All of my shoots are first thing in the morning, so we are finished before it gets too hot out, so no worries about that. Still have questions, check out my website, or talk to any of my reps, or reach out to me! I am happy to answer any and all questions you may have.

Now, on to more fun things ~ SNEAK PEEKS!! I had a great time meeting Carli and her mom for her deluxe (two location) senior session. The locations she chose were Rollins and the beach.  We had so much fun both days!  With deluxe shoots that have the beach as one of their locations, we need to break it into two separate days.  And thankfully, we went to the beach when we did, because the very next day, a severe storm blew thru and tore up the pier!  So, until further notice, there will be no more beach shoots.  No worries though, I’m sure they are working on getting it all up and “photo ready”, and there won’t be too much down time.

Next family session up on the blog, is a super fun family.  I just photographed the oldest for her senior photos.  I love when I have the opportunity to photograph seniors’ entire family!  This family decided they wanted beach photos.  No problem!  Sunrise is early, but so worth it!  We had a beautiful morning to shoot this beautiful family.

Here are a few sneak peeks from our session:

Next senior up on the blog is Tori!  We had a little trouble with the timing of her shoot, because she wanted to go to the beach at the same time Hurricane Matthew decided to visit!  Not the best time for a beach shoot ;).  So, we rescheduled, and had a perfect day to shoot.  Beautiful sunrise, beautiful weather, and a beautiful senior to photograph!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Emily from Hagerty High School!  We had a great time at her deluxe session (a deluxe session = 2 locations).  We first met at Rollins for the first half, and bright and early the next morning, we met out at the beach.  Both are great locations, and we had so much fun at both!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks from each of the locations:

I had such a great time meeting Alisa and her mom for her deluxe senior shoot.  She is such a sweet girl, and was a pleasure to photograph.  Deluxe sessions are two locations.  And what Alisa chose for her locations were as different as day and night (literally!).  We did our first half at downtown Orlando for a night shoot, and then a few hours later, we were out at the beach for sunrise!  This was a great idea, because she will have such a diverse look in her photos.

Here are a couple of sneak peeks from each of the locations:

Next senior(s) up on the blog, you may recognize!  They are a couple of my fabulous reps!  They earned this sunrise beach shoot, and we all had so much fun!  Despite having literally NO sunrise that morning (so rarely happens!), and the big winds on the beach, they are both super gorgeous and model like.  I have so much fun with my reps!

Here are a few sneak peeks from each of the girls:

Next senior(s) up on the blog, you may recognize!  They are a few of my fabulous reps!  They earned this sunrise beach shoot, and we all had so much fun!  Despite me screwing up the date (oops), and the extreme winds on the beach, they are all super gorgeous and model like.  Lots and lots of laughs at this sunrise shoot!
