Olivia’s Senior Portraits

Olivia was my first senior girl this fall and we had a blast.  She brought her two sisters, which was a huge help in fixing hair, holding our disco ball reflector and of course extra accessories.  This session was jam packed with tons of variety and some stunning locations that I had never photographed.  There are […]

Sheets Family 2016

I shot a family up at Cook’s Apple Orchard last fall and it was my mission to shoot at the same location in the spring when the apple trees were in full bloom.   We had such a wet spring, it was difficult to plan any shoot outdoors let alone time it around the apple […]
