1920s Theme Great Gatsby

For this senior model shoot I wanted to do something different. I have always loved the idea of the Great Gatsby. The gals and boys did an awesome job at portraying this theme for our group shoot. The day before the shoot I located this antique phone that was perfect for the session. In some of the photos you will see PJ tellig us “Hold up I’m on the phone” some you will see us laughing. It is always a lot of fun getting together with the team and creating something fun. This has been one of my favorite sessions with them.

Paint fight with Senior19Team

I am finally getting around to our Senior19Team paint fight. We had to reschedule due to our Mississippi weather being so crazy! The wait was totally worth it.

We hand made our powder paint from pinterest using starch and food coloring (Make sure to get the Gel kind) it is  totally harmless and washes out easily!  We found an empty field and loaded our cars up with paint and sheets so we wouldnt ruin the car of course. Then we got to throwing. The game plan was to space the powder out and grab a handful.... Well we ended up throwing the whole containers at each other so we ran out quick! If you ask me next time we would make more paint or use liquid paint! We are now prepping for our water balloon fight!

 

I love actives like this with my senior team, often time we are so busy that we barely get to have fun. We had to ditch the cell phones and run!

Mommy & Me Session

I did my first Mommy & Me session with my makeup artist Lauren and her precious baby Ali Rose. Her baby is a blue eyed Angel that loves dogs. I had to bring my fur baby Raven out for her to cooperate with our shoot! This session was filled with laughter and silly faces, even some bugger picking!  Moms outfit was from our style closet. I cannot wait for all the  upcoming Mommy & Me Sessions for Mothers Day! Its a whole day about celebrating mommy and making memories.

Updated Portraits for Website| Photography

Over the last few weeks I have been working on re-branding my business, and rebuilding my website. This required me to hire a talented Website designer Danielle,  she was nothing but patient with me helping me discover myself and my new branding. During this time i realized it was time for new head shots for my website. This can be rather challenging, I wanted my clients to see the real me, my real smile. How could I do this while standing in front of the camera pushing a button.

Luckily I had my two biggest supporters to help me, my sister Buffy and my husband Craig. My sister was in charge of making sure I was flawless she helped with my wardrobe and makeup (I can't even do winged eyeliner!) My husband was in charge of photographing me and making sure I was laughing, and not the fake laugh but my real goofy laugh. Can I tell you how happy I am with the results? I couldn't do what I do without them!

Beautiful outside session | Photography

I had such an amazing time photographing this young lady for her senior portraits. It was a windy cool day but that did not stop us, we had a comb in our pockets the whole time to make sure she was flawless. I am happy that in 20 years she will be able to look back and have beautiful portraits of the person she was.
