It's a brand new year...2016 is here!! As if you missed the memo. I see posts everywhere about celebrations, regrets, and change. I felt the need to share my reflections on 2015 and how those reflections led me into a better business plan for 2016.

Winter is cold and sometimes blustery. And can be plain out miserable. Luckily, I live in an area that is not like this ALL WINTER LONG...we often are blessed with nice days during winter, which has me chomping at the bit to get out there and shoot people! HA!
Another reason some people may avoid winter photos is because they think they can't look cute and not freeze to death at the same time. Well, fear not! I'm here to help with the winter fashion blues and can't wait to share some looks that I recently came across, as well as some looks from my own seniors!
Winter opens up a whole new realm of opportunity for expression through fashion. I ran across this blog recently that shares 60 trendy winter looks! Here is one of them:) LOVE this skirt and blouse combo!
Or how about jackets? You can still look amazing and be warm too! I love peacoats and trenches, but this embellished leather jacket looks amazing!
Fur is one of my favorites, and has def been on trend this season. I loved adding it in with prom dresses! But fur is a great addition to a plaid shirt or even sequin looks!
Don't fear the winter wardrobe when it comes to photos...you can still look amazing despite the cooler temps! I shoot senior sessions year round. If you're looking to book your senior portraits soon, just use the contact tab at the top of the page! I look forward to hearing from you and helping overcome any wardrobe blues!
Stay Stylish! Megan
This past month has seriously flown by...way too fast! Christmas is just around the corner! We're wrapping up Thanksgiving get-togethers, eating leftovers, and pulling out the Christmas decorations. Where did this month go?! November wasn't quite as insanely booked as last month, thank goodness, but I did get to photograph some awesome seniors! There were a few other sessions too:) Here are some favorites from the month:
My seniors were gorgeous as always:) Morgan's shoot was downtown and I just love how this wind-blown one turned out!
Chelsi's senior session was full of the beautiful fall colors.
Peyton knew what she was doing when she paired the stripes with the quilted vest! Such a great fall fashion statement! I love the boots and the socks as well:)
As I stated earlier, I got to shoot more than just seniors this month:) Lindsay's teen style session included lots of dance! I love the movement in this photo:
Eric and Dulce are like seriously the world's most attractive couple...we had such a great time shooting their engagement portraits despite all the wind!
The Seays will be welcoming their little bundle after Christmas!
Faith and her boys make such a beautiful family. They were troopers for their chilly session.
Rae Anne & Kavon booked me again...this time for their engagement photos! And this time, there was a new addition to their family! Meet Jade, their beautiful pit:)
Lots of gorgeousness in this post! I am blessed to have such amazing clients! Thanks for making November memorable:)
If you're looking to book a session, I'm already booking 2015! So don't wait!
Sarah is such a sweetheart. I enjoyed working with her and shooting her senior portraits so much! Sarah is a 2015 senior at Chatham High School. Her senior photo session took place back in August. Katie at River City Salon and Spa styled Sarah's hair and makeup, and of course Sarah looked amazing! We shot her photos in the Chatham area and then finished up in town. I knew that the weather for the day would start off beautiful, but storms were on the way. We crossed our fingers!
Sarah had several different looks. I love it when there is variety to wardrobe, as well as location. Sarah definitely had both!
This image below was Sarah's favorite! It looked amazing enlarged to a 20x24 portrait!
Sarah should definitely check into modeling agencies...
Brunette + military green = perfect combo!
This dress....ohhhhhh LOVED it!
I couldn't resist adding in my big floppy hat for a few! This shot was another one of Sarah's top faves:)
Just as we wrapped up, the wind was picking up, so we knew a storm was near. We packed everything up and as we pulled off, the downpour began! I couldn't have timed that any more perfectly if I had tried! Sarah, your session was tons of fun, and I'm so glad that you chose me as your senior photographer! Best wishes on your senior year!

This month has been insanely crazy busy...but I wouldn't have it any other way this time of year. Some great photos have resulted from this month's senior sessions, so I wanted to blog a recap of all the excitement! Next month is scheduled out to be just as exciting!

I have a model session coming up tomorrow that is sure to be full of amazing crazy goodness:) Can't wait to share!
Victoria was such a blast! I had so much fun with her and her Mom during her downtown senior session. She has such a great style and I loved that she brought her guitar along!Enjoy a few favorites from her session:
Um, yea...such a great session:) Thanks for choosing me as your senior photographer, Victoria!
Sydney is a 2015 senior at Gretna High School. She booked her session with me REALLY EARLY. I mean, I'm telling yall, this girl knew exactly what she wanted from her senior portrait session and she chose me to give it all to her:) You just gotta love a girl who knows what she wants! Needless to say, we had a fabulous session around Gretna. Here are a few favorites from the day:
This flag photo was her top fave:
Her senior pictures definitely had variety:) You can have that too! Contact me today to start planning your custom senior session!
Drew's session was full of laughs and baseball. Drew runs track, but did I mention that he loves baseball? His family is a hoot and I thoroughly enjoyed working with them. One of Drew's ball photos actually turned out to be one of my favorite guy shots to date (the black and white one below). Drew also brought along his class ring. I've noticed fewer and fewer seniors seem to have one, so we had some fun with that. Here are a few faves from his senior portrait session at Chatham High School:
Thanks so much to Drew and his family for booking with me! Best wishes for your senior year, Drew!
I have had the opportunity to shoot some awesome seniors this month! I wanted to share a few of my favorites, which include seniors from Dan River High school, Altavista Combined School, and Chatham High School. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with such amazing young women!

I also had the opportunity to shoot a little "for myself" this month. I had been planning an Audrey Hepburn styled session for a while, and it all finally came together! My junior model Emmalee took my ideas and ran with them:) I'd say it all came together rather well!
And I think this one is my fave from that session:
Wow, what a GORGEOUS bunch of young ladies!! I can't wait to share more from these sessions with you in their own personal blogs:)
Ethan is one of my 2015 senior models and such a pleasure to be around! He is not only sweet, but an excellent student and captain of the Gretna High School football team. I am so blessed to have been able to work with Ethan and his family. Here are a few favorites from his senior session:
Thanks for being so awesome, Ethan! Best wishes on your senior year:)
