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!
Here are some sneak peeks from our shoots:
Next senior up on the blog is Stephen! He is such a great kid, and we had a great time on our shoot at Rollins. Not only were WE having fun, but I think his mom had even more fun than we were! I love it when everyone is having a good time on a shoot. It makes for really great photos.
Not done with the class of 2016 yet! Next senior up on the blog is Madison. Madison, her mom, and I had a great time at our shoot at Maitland Art Center. It is such a great location, that I don’t get to shoot at all that often. At the end of our shoot, she wanted to do some fire shots for volleyball. And you know, I’m always up for some fire photos! And she definitely had her “game face” (fierce!) perfected for her sports photos! Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:
Next senior up on the blog is Ben! His older sister was one of my reps a couple of years ago, so of course, his parents wanted lots of great photos of Ben too! And he was a good sport with all of it. We got lots of great photos, and finished up with sports photos with fire! I love lighting stuff on fire (I guess it is the being married to a firefighter thing, because firefighters are all piros!). I promise, it is all safe! I would never put my seniors in danger. 😉 If you have an upcoming shoot with me, and want some fire, just let me know ahead of time, so I can come prepared!

The next senior I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing was Gabby! We had a great session at the beach. My beach shoots are early. Sunrise at Cocoa Beach. They are beautiful, and totally worth it, but it IS early! Gabby didn’t seem phased at all with the early start time, as she was beautiful and ready to rock her shoot!
Here are a few sneak peeks from our session:
I had the pleasure of meeting this family a couple years ago when I photographed Dalton’s older brother for his senior photos. I love it when families are so happy with their senior photos, that they come back and trust me to photograph their siblings! Dalton was so great and so much fun to photograph! He was all smiles and so comfortable in front of the camera.
Here are a few sneak peeks from his shoot:
I love shooting senior guys! Especially ones that WANT the photos taken. Of course, I can make the shoot quick and painless for those guys who are just wanting nice photos for their mommas. But when they relax and have fun with their shoot, THAT is really awesome. Joey was hilarious to shoot. Yes, we got nice (normal) shots for mom, but he also wanted baseball photos AND a couple of silly photos. Including him in his most favorite outfit – his pajamas. Hahaha! Whatever the senior wants, I want to make it happen for them. This is THEIR session, and I want them to not only love their photos, but I want them to have fun with the entire experience.
Here are a few sneak peeks from Joey’s session (including one of his silly ones ~ taking a selfie in his pjs):
I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Alanah for her senior photos. She was so sweet and so easy to photograph! Not to mention, I think we may have hit just a little hint of fall weather! Temps were down a couple of degrees. Hopefully this is the weather moving in the right direction ;).
Here are a few sneak peeks from Alanah’s session:
Parker and I had an early, but great morning out at the beach for his senior photos! He loves surfing and the beach, so it was a great location for him. And once we were done with the photo part, he had his board with him, so we did some surfing photos! I think that was probably his most favorite part of the entire shoot ;).
Here are a few sneak peeks from Parker’s session:
I swear, this year I am getting the sweetest, nicest seniors! And Erin was no exception! We had a great shoot on Park Ave, and then followed it up with a super quick shoot at the pool. Since swimming is such a big part of her life, I think it was important to get a couple of swim shots in with her senior photos too. I have no problem (and I actually love) incorporating what is important to them into their session!
