Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Adison!  Not only is she ridiculously adorable, she is such a sweetheart too!  And so organized and on the ball!  I had to do pretty much no prep with her, because she had it all handled.   I met her mom and older sister a few years ago, and now it is Adison’s turn.  I was so touched that she knew she wanted to use me for her senior photos.  She chose the same location as her sister (good taste runs in the family!).  Rollins has been the hot spot for sure this summer.  With good reason.  It has lots of different backgrounds, pretty much no one there at the time we go, and great light!  But just because lots of people go there, that doesn’t mean everyone’s photos will look the same.  Different personalities, different parts of campus, all lead to your own beautiful photos.

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

And for those 2020 seniors who haven’t yet scheduled their session, I am now booking fall dates!  As soon as school starts, weekends tend to fill up quickly, so don’t wait to get on my calendar.  I’d love to meet you and get you some beautiful senior photos!

Next beautiful senior up on the blog is Grace!  Grace has had several of her friends use me for their senior photos, and I was so touched that she was 100% certain that she wanted to use me too!  She, like most seniors, was a little nervous about her shoot.  But like I tell everyone, this is a no-stress environment.  It’s time to relax and have fun, and the beautiful photos will follow.  And in Grace’s shoot, that was certainly true!  I had a great time getting to know her, and I got so many great photos of her.  She is such a natural beauty and a sweetheart!  And as a bonus, by the end of her shoot, she ROCKED her serious face!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot at Rollins:

 

For those seniors who have not yet scheduled their session, I only have a couple of dates available before school starts.  If you are wanting a shoot, contact me ASAP to get one of these last days before school starts!!

I’m back from vacation, and ready to meet some new seniors!  The next senior up on the blog is Tyler.  He brought the whole fam with him to his shoot, and we all had so much fun!  I’m loving that more and more guys are booking this year!  Guys, I promise, it isn’t as bad as going to take the yearbook photo.  I can be quick (if you want me to), we will have fun, we will get lots of great photos, and you will score some major brownie points with mom.  She will probably even take you out to breakfast after your shoot ;).  Tyler was so great (and yes, he got to go out to breakfast afterwards!), and was nice and relaxed in front of the camera.  I had a great time getting to know Tyler and his family!

These beautiful girls have been dominating my blog recently!  They have had several shoots during their senior year, but this one *may* have been their favorite.  SOFTBALL!!  They both play ball for Oviedo, and will continue in college, so of course, we are going to want to do some sports photos for them!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks for each of them:

Oh, I had so much fun with this family!  I have been photographing both of their girls all year (so they may look familiar, and keep an eye out in another day or two for more of their sneak peeks coming out!).  So, it was so nice to photograph the whole family at their home.  We don’t always have to go to a park or a popular location.  If you want photos at home, or another place that is special to you and your family, then let’s have our session there!  Their beautiful home provided plenty of nice backdrops for us to use.  Grandma and Grandpa joined in on the shoot too, which I love!  They are all such a wonderful family, and I love that they trust me to capture all of these special times for them.

Next senior up on the blog, is beautiful Sarah!  We had such a fun time on our deluxe (two location) shoot.  She bought her big sister along with her to act as her assistant (who is also a former senior of mine 😉 ).  The three of us started her session at Dickson Azalea, and then finished it up doing something totally different.  “Glam golf”.  She is a very talented golfer, and we will be doing another sports session for her later in the school year.  But those will be all action shots.  This was to get some pretty and fun golf photos for her!  At the golf course, they were so sweet to us.  After seeing Sarah in a full length gown, they offered us some golf carts to make things a little easier.  Definitely made it easier than walking a couple of holes in heels!

Now that the school year has officially started everywhere, if you haven’t booked YOUR senior photo session yet, what are you waiting for?!  Have an idea of what you want for your session? Let me know, and I’m happy to make that happen for you.  Your senior photos should be all about YOU and what you want!

Now back to Sarah!  Here are some sneak peeks from our session:

Next senior up on the blog, is the gorgeous Gianna!  I was lucky enough to spend two days with her.  Normally the deluxe (2 location) sessions are done in the same day, one right after the other.  However, I don’t do that when one of the locations is the beach.  Reason being, we are there at sunrise, and by the end, we are wet, sandy, and windblown.  Not exactly optimal for going to the next location ;).  So, we do it on a separate morning!  Gianna chose the beach and her school for sports photos.  When we were at the beach, she had a great entourage to come with her.  Sisters and mom!  I had a great time with all of those sweet ladies.  And they were so smart, they opted to stay at the beach the night before.  So, it wasn’t as early to get up and get going for the sunrise.  It was a beautiful sunrise that morning.  The next shoot day at the school, the entourage wasn’t able to join us, but Dad and her coach did (THANK YOU!!).  And Dad helped me with the fire (yes, for sports, I do real fire – totally and completely safe, no worries).  I’ve enjoyed getting to know Gianna a little better and getting her some beautiful senior photos!

The next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Kaylee!  She brought a friend and her mom with her to act as her assistants during her shoot.  The 4 of us had such a good time!  The first location she chose was one I hadn’t been to before.  She wanted an overgrown grassy field (a common request).  I told her that I didn’t have one, but if she could find one, I’m all over it!  Well, she found one.  However, I don’t know that we were totally prepared for all of the muck and mud in that was there.  If I go there again, rain/mud boots will be a necessity!  But that all led to the experience of the morning ;). The second location she chose, I know like the back of my hand.  Rollins!  Rollins is my most requested location, and for good reason.  Lots of beautiful spots to take photos.

Squeezing in one last family before the holidays!  And what a fun shoot this was!  Yes, I was nervous when I heard they wanted two horses and a dog in the family photo, I will admit that.  But honestly, it couldn’t have gone smoother!  We had extra hands (and an awesome sounds app) to help the horses look, and the dog could have been a model!  He had no problem staying still and looking very handsome for the photos.  So, animals all good, check!  Now to the family.  All gorgeous and happy, check!  End result, a fantastic family photo with the ENTIRE family looking perfect! I had a great time meeting and working with this lovely family.  A GREAT way to end shoots before Christmas!

It isn’t often that I get called for a newborn session, but boy do I love them when I do!  This sweet little girl was no exception.  So gorgeous, so sweet, and so brand new!  For newborn sessions, it is best to get them to me before they turn 2 weeks old.  Typically then they are still pretty sleepy.  This little girl was supposed to be sleepy, but she showed who was in charge.  She wanted to be awake and see everything going on!  That’s ok, I’m patient, I’ll wait.  So, we got some awake photos, and some sweet sleepy photos.  All in all, it was a great shoot!
