Sam is one of my beautiful 2017 senior spokesmodels and her senior session last week was so gorgeous!! Her bubbly, hilarious personality is always so much fun to be around and I knew her shoot would be a perfect reflection of that. When Sam applied to be a spokesmodel, she immediately caught my eye because […]

On Sunday I hosted my second annual Senior Studio Party and it was incredible!!

One of my absolute FAVORITE parts of a wedding day is photographing the details!! It’s my wedding day “warm-up” at the beginning of the day and allows me to get my creative juices flowing. I LOVE taking all of the well-thought-out details that the bride has worked so hard on and beautifully photographing them so […]
