We were waiting for Amy to come out with the crowd of people – but we had to go in and FIND her! And I am SO GLAD we did!!

It’s been an emotional year – to say the least – and the tears flowed!!

AMY!! Thank you SO MUCH for asking me along to capture these AMAZING moments in your life!!

And Allison – whatever you do – make sure you LOVE it!!

I met Amy last year when she asked me to take senior pictures for her daughter and her friends – do you remember the BREAKFAST CLUB session!?

Well – a year has passed already – and they’re graduating!

Amy asked me to come to graduation and photograph her daughter and their group of friends!

As I was sitting in the stands – looking at the program – I realized that I graduated high school 20 years ago that week.

And I had written a letter to my grandmother about what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to be a photographer for National Geographic (I had no interest in photographing people)!!

Not only was I sitting in a gymnasium full of kids exactly where I was 20 years ago – but I was also hired to take their photos! SURREAL!!

Stay tuned for the rest of graduation!!

LIZ – CLASS OF 2019

That sweet pup! We had to bring her out for a few more shots!

I mean – THAT LIGHT! SO AMAZING!

We saved the BEST for last!!

Liz is a Doctor Who fan – so much so – that she brought the NEW Doctor’s outfit WITH her for senior photos!

This property – it’s got EVERYTHING!

“Right now, I’m a stranger to myself. There’s echoes of who I was and a sort of call towards who I am.

And I have to hold my nerve and trust all these new instincts. Shape myself towards them. I’ll be fine. In the end. Hopefully. I have to be.”

The Doctor

I won’t pretend to be a photoshop master – not even close! BUT – that sky is 100% REAL in that exact moment – and the TARDIS – that was added in. Or was it!?

EVERYTHING ABOUT THESE PHOTOS – my dream location!

Little alien creatures – see – that TARDIS isn’t photoshopped!

LIZ!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to spend the evening with you! Maybe I’ll see you next year when we make our annual REN FAIRE trip!!

Liz messaged me after talking with her yearbook advisor!

She wanted REAL senior photos – thanks so much for referring her to me Amy!

A girl and her dog – it’s a beautiful thing!

Windy? Cloudy? Sprinkles? NOT A PROBLEM!!

ALSO – CAN WE SHOOT HERE ALL THE TIME – EVERY TIME – FROM HERE ON OUT!?

THAT TREE! THAT LIGHT!!

SO GORGEOUS!!

I love white birch trees – I want to wrap this property up in my pocket and carry it around with me for ALL THE SESSIONS!

Stay tuned for the REST of Liz’s senior session – because I couldn’t STOP taking photos!!

I met Faith when Faith (a different Faith) submitted her family for BEAUTIFUL a few years ago!

Turns out – we are distantly related! Our great-grandfather’s were cousins – or something like that!

I was so happy when Kim contacted me about Faith’s senior pictures!

Faith was a trooper – the mosquitoes were AWFUL!!

I am LOVING shooting RIGHT AT SUNSET lately!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!

FAITH! Thank you SO much for believing in my vision! Laying on the rocks in a parking lot – laying in a mosquito-ridden field!

I had a GREAT night hanging out with you! Whatever you do – MAKE SURE YOU LOVE IT!

We prayed for a beautiful sunset – and we got one!
