Hemlock Senior Photographer | Cassondra Sneak Peek

Cassondra is a senior at Hemlock High School, class of 2013.  Her easygoing personality made the session go by so quickly.   She is contagiously sweet and outgoing… You can’t not love her! And it was impossible to not to enjoy the photo shoot!  This softball jock brought some serious glam to her session…her outfits and jewelry were to die for! P.S. We got through five different outfits/looks… FIVE!  From the salon, through almost 2.5 hours of shooting (that’s a good 4 hours total!) she was an exceptional subject.  I got to document the whole process of hair and make up, and made an amazing before and after that is now featured in my Senior Magazine that any inquiring clients will get to flip through!  I seriously could have photographed this girl for another couple of hours… we just literally ran out of daylight and had to stop.  ):   I have some great stuff in store for her at her ordering/viewing session (ahem… rep cards… *cough… video/slideshow… *cough).   Anyway, give Cassondra some love here and on Facebook!


I will be doing her session share later this week once she’s had a chance to see all the images… until then… Her Sneak Peek!

These are truly beautiful images of a beautiful girl–I am sure she is THRILLED with them!

Hemlock Senior Photographer | Lauren

Lauren’s session was fantastic!  Though she isn’t quite a senior yet, she still rocked it as if she was!  We got through four outfits and ton of locations in just one hour!  She had her hair done in a Taylor Swift curl that compliments her look so perfectly; and her make up was gorgeous and subtle.  This girl has natural beauty and it really showed in her images!  I can’t wait to photograph Lauren again for her official Senior Portraits in a couple of years.  For now though, I can just wish her a Happy Sweet 16 (perfect timing for her photos! I always wished I had had some done at 16!), and thank her and her mother for working with me!  This session has truly been my favorite to date.  And I can’t blame them for having a hard time picking which ones to order… cause I couldn’t pick just a few to share here.  So, to see all the images from Lauren’s session just head over to my current Featured Session!

Hemlock Senior Photographer | Lauren’s Sneak Peek

This is just the first image that I shot, and then the first I edited from my most recent session.  I shot it on Tuesday, and I’m actually already finished editing her entire session!  I can’t share everything yet as she hasn’t seen them, being that she’s away at a camp for Cross Country.  I can’t wait to share them with you! Until then, a peek at her session…


This is only the beginning!!

love the bohemian feel of this one and what gorgeous eyes she has!

Picture Play Friday | Senior

Check out Whitney!  She is gorgeous and was so easy to photograph.  Somehow, I just passed over this image of her during my initial post processing… I do not know how!  I couldn’t wait until Tuesday (what I’ve decided will be my official picture play day!) to share this!  I love shooting… but my goodness I LOVE post processing/editing/retouching… whatever you call it, it’s one of my favorite parts.  It’s so amazing to see a really good image became a really great image.  I always flip from the before and after to see the difference, and this one really came alive on the finished image, so I had to share!

I’m really LOVING working with senior girls, and am offering some great exclusive things for these sessions only!  If you’d like to do a senior session with me just send me a quick message through the contact link above.  Or email me at
