PRESENTING | Samantha, The Stunning Senior

Generally I try not to have overwhelming amounts of images and/or scrolling involved in any single post but since I can’t bear to eliminate a single additional image from these storyboards this time is going to be an exception, as was my last post about Penny.  : )    It seriously just took me over an hour to narrow the original number of pictures I wanted to include in this post, to these 19 (which I know is still a crazy number considering it’s just shy of the total amount I typically edit and present following a shoot) but you’ll see why its been so hard in a second…

Recently I had the opportunity to do something I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while and that is shoot one of my bestie’s little sister, who begins her senior year next week!  Thanks to her fresh style, fun easy going personality and willingness to not only do anything but let me dress her in anything, including my grandpa’s old belt, not to mention her beautiful blonde hair, huge expressive brown eyes, and sweet smile, the images she gave me were better than I’d ever hoped for.  Thanks Samantha, you’re a stunner!


PRESENTING | Justin Timberlake is Graduating!

Looking through my viewfinder I honestly could not get over this Seniors resemblance to Justin Timberlake. Uncanny! And would you believe when I that thought with him that he informed me he’d never been told that before! Not a bad doppleganger if you ask me!

Nick was super fun and easy to shoot, which is never expected when you’re working with a teenage boy. Funny though that with all the shots I take, my favorites are always the close crops on the face where you can really see their eyes sparkle. This shoot was no exception.

Presenting | Shellie The Senior

A good friend of mine from Minnesota came for a visit recently and being the history buff she is, she wanted her Senior Pictures taken in DC. I tried my best to not disappoint. We hit up the town everyday…and night!

Got some good ones with the Lincoln memorial columns I find so unique AND Shellie introduced me to my new favorite DC location. It’s my new favorite for both it’s photos opps and for it’s history. So there’s this little red brick structure on the north lawn of the Capitol building. Inside are chairs carved into stone and in the center in a fountain. It’s always been a plain enough structure that to me, it was forgettable. Not so much since Shellie enlightened me with the knowledge that this is where slaves used to be brought for auction. I had no idea. It gave me chills to be there. Now every brick and form in the concrete seats is so significant and fascinating to me it really is the more intriguing place in DC to me these days.

We also made it out to the beautiful Harpers Ferry area that’s history and scenery offered endless possibilities as well. Here are some of my favorites.
