i thought we could all use some sunshine on this gloomy day.  so, here’s hadley.  not only was her session shot on a beautiful morning, her smile and personality just shine!  it’s hard to believe she’s the same little baby who just seven months ago looked like this!  it’s so much fun seeing her grow and change.  one thing that hasn’t changed is how laid back mom and dad are.  nate and annie were like that from the start and proved to be just as easy going still.  that attitude goes a long way in helping me capture everyone being who they are!  i can’t wait to visit with hadley and her parents again soon!

such a happy baby!

lots of mommy and daddy time…

wow!  that about sums up this session!  lou is monica’s mom.  gorgeous…like mother, like daughter!  lou wanted a fabulous, magazine model session to showcase how amazing she looks for her age and, i’d say, for ANY age!  we should all be so lucky!  we had so much fun shooting around downtown.  lou took the city by storm.  literally, traffic stopped when she walked across the street.  SO much fun capturing this side of who lou is.  here are some of my favorites from that day…

taking a break.  it’s not easy being beautiful!

all of her clothing choices were so well thought out, right down to the shoes.

the constructions guys had NO problem letting us use their ladder for a few shots!

nothing but the best!


had to showcase the back of the dress!

jessica is definitely a stand out model from the class of 2012 big shots model team!  i feel lucky to have her on board!  you may remember her first session from back in the spring. she was so photogenic and genuine then and did it again for her second session.  we mixed it up the second time around  to give her a more urban backdrop.  no matter the setting or session,  jessica’s smile just about says it all!  she is one of the friendliest girls i’ve had the pleasure of working with.  all of the friends she’s referred to me have been just as nice!  i guess “birds of a feather stick together”!

i know life now is all about getting through senior year, college apps and looking toward the future.  i’m sure the future holds great things for you, jessica.  just keep being who you are and you’ll go far!

here are a few favorites from our most recent session together…
