When I met my husband, he told me that he worked with teenagers. Being an elementary school teacher at the time, I thought... "That's nice". But I was always afraid of teenagers. I knew that I could never ever work with them.
Fast forward seven years later, I now volunteer for him and cannot get enough of these High School kids! First of all... they are SO FUN Like so much more fun than people my age. I laugh SO HARD when I am with them and seriously would love to hang out with them every night (we practically do!)
Anyways... Ali's mom heard that I was a photographer and called me in a panic just days before her daughter's Sweet 16. She hadn't booked a photographer and knew she needed to capture her daughter in her dress and all made up on her special night! Every part of me was screaming "no!" I am SO BOOKED UP and I had a huge event the night before. But I couldn't say no. (That's a serious problem that I have!) and I knew that it would be so much fun to work with a sixteen year old.
Ali is amazing! I wish I had more time with her! Even though we had just met, I felt like we've always knew each other. Anyways... check out some of my favorite images from our mini session together. Thank you Ali, for choosing me to be your photographer! You are gorgeous!!!
Joy is going to be famous one day. I just know it. When I was asked to take some headshots for her new acting school, I was thrilled. I just love working with children this age! Joy and I had so much fun frolicking through the woods and running up hills and laughing as I took some pictures of this natural beauty. I feel like I have this gift of being able to connect to this age group. How lucky am I to be able to work with such a beautiful STAR?!
Cd covers are one of my most favorite photo sessions because I am usually given lots of freedom to create. It all starts with a great photo, but I'm allowed to add something more to it in the editing process. And I love this! It's all part of telling a story.

today I had a mini photo session with my friend Stephanie. She showed me a "new" park that I never knew existed and is practically in walking distance from my house (I'm bad!). We had a good time- she's a beautiful person on the inside and out. I love how her personality comes through in a lot of these photos. You can see her strength and passion. Thanks, Steffie :) for allowing me to photograph you! I love you!!
