Get ready for a pink poofy dress. I was excited about Maria’s senior session from the very beginning….even though I tried to turn it down (yes, yes I did – can you imagine if my busy calendar prevented me from meeting this amazing young woman and her precious momma??)!! Arhy, Maria’s mom, started her inquiry […]

Not gonna lie. I feel as though a difficult season of mothering is about to be upon me. I know…that’s a heavy way of starting off a light-hearted blog…but sometimes Fakebook and Instaspam “reality” has to be defeated with a truth post. See – last week, I shot a senior session. I have loved every […]

I lo-o-o-o-ove taking senior portraits. I always leave completely amazed at these young adults who are poised to go off and make their own way in the world. My husband and I have three kids, a son (9) and two daughters (8 and 6) and I feel like we’re still very much in the stage […]

Sometimes I feel like I’m squandering the privilege because I don’t get down there enough but then beautiful happenstance gives me an opportunity. Rachel’s path […]

After I did my friend Danicole’s graduate session in DC at the Capitol, his friend Marissa reached out, asking for senior photos at the Lincoln Memorial. Guys, I could’ve swooned. In fact, I think I did swoon. I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to shoot at this amazing, iconic location and Marissa was an absolutely […]

So you know this girl rocks at life when she walks down the pathway like a professional model. That’s just what Diane did during our photo session together and I’m still in shock at the poise and professionalism she just embodied. Seriously. Just like a professional model.

Another Hawaiian connection graces the blog this week. Danicole is one of those guys who always, and I mean always, has a smile on his face. His cheerful demeanor is so ever-present that when I coached him to do some straight-faced images for his senior pictures, they totally didn’t even look like him – smile-less […]

When an inquiry for a senior session comes through my email, I do a little happy dance. I love photographing graduating high school seniors. I know David’s family through the Hawaiian community where my husband and two of our children dance hula. Back in the fall, David’s mom, Caryn, approached me about doing David’s photos […]
