Spring Senior Photo Session

Spring Senior Photo Session

I have had the pleasure of working with Tori for every season! I need to go back and blog her winter one:) But for now, let's talk about SPRING! Spring is often overlooked by seniors because they're nearing the end and have most likely already had portraits done. BUT I love spring blooms! And the bright colors and the warmer temps of course! 

We got together at my house and shot these:) It turned out to be an overcast evening unfortunately, but we still had a great time and got some beautiful images! 

Here are a few of my favorites from Tori's spring session!! 

This swing is in my backyard:) Hanging from one of the most beautiful trees ever....

I mean, those bushes!!! AHHH! I love blooms:) I do photos of my kids with those bushes every year too:) Tori, you're beautiful and I absolutely love taking your photos! I am so thankful for our year together!

Welcome Winter...and Happy Holidays!!

Welcome Winter...and Happy Holidays!!

I always enjoy getting my Model Crew together...these girls all hold a special place in my heart and will never know how amazing I truly think they are! We decided to do a holiday shoot, but then I decided I didn't want it to scream Christmas, so we scaled it back a notch. I told them to think plaid, boots, fur, etc and they planned their own outfits. It was SUPER windy the day of the shoot, but these girls toughed it out...and of course I gave them "heat breaks." I love the look of the pine trees and was thankful for the greenery the photos:)

Here are a few from our session: 

These girls are SO much fun, but can totally switch on the fierce in a split second! We are planning another group shoot so I can't wait to work with these girls again:))) 

My Spring calendar is now open for booking, so be sure to contact me if you're interested in a custom senior session!

Back to School | South Central Virginia Senior Photography

It's that time again ALREADY and summer is winding down. School supplies have been purchased and backpacks are ready to go. But what about your wardrobe? Does it need a few fresh new pieces to kick off this new school year? OF COURSE! 

Here are a few tips for back to school clothing shopping: 

-Shop sales (more for your buck!)
-Thrifting and consignment stores (again, more for your buck) often have top brands at lower prices, some even still have the tags!
-Go with pieces that can mix and match....not all prints

Pinterest is so amazing not only visually, but to be able to find the exact content I'm looking for, especially when it comes to clothing:)  Here are some helpful links/images:

Jeans: 
Errrrybody wears jeans. They're easily dressed up or down too. Here are a few neat looks that I found on Polyvore:) You may already have jeans, so just pair them up with cute tops, add a jacket, or throw on some wedges to dress them up a bit! Mix and match:) 

Don't let summer end yet...wear colored denim!!

Sandals with jeans....

Dark denim...

How about white denim? Lindsey nailed this outfit, giving these white jeans a dressy look by adding such a chic top!

Back to school usually brings a lot of tension....but when you're wearing a cute outfit or know that you have comfortable but fashionable clothes, you can feel SO much better about returning to your studies. 

Happy First Day of School to the locals here! I hope you all have a great year! And enjoy mixing and matching outfits with your jeans:)

Model Crew Shoot | Lakeside | Chatham, Virginia Senior Photography

Part 2 of my Model Crew session took place over by Elkhorn lake. We didn't shoot long, as a strong storm was quickly approaching, but we did manage a few:) Each model chose her own outfit and the hair & MUA (Dara Pettiford) relaxed the styling a bit after shooting the vintage pool party. I am so thankful for these girls, for their desire to be on my Model Crew, and for their willingness to fight the heat the day of this shoot. Working with them is so much fun and I hope that they can remember our time together as a highlight of their high school years!

Let's get started with Cami, she is such a sweet girl! 

Brooke got us all access to the lake, so thanks girlie! I just love the shot of her laughing:) 

Chandler has so much personality, I just love where she's kicking her foot up out of the water!

Haley is such a ray of sunshine! Her smile is infectious! 

Lindsay is fierce and fabulous....that last image of her is my fave:) 

Obsessed with this skirt...

These girls had so much fun and I did too! I look forward to getting them all together again...
