We had a great time hanging out with the Oates family at San Gabriel Park. This was a 45 minute session that was perfect for capturing different family poses, photos with mom and dad together and individually with their baby boy and some cute 1 year old photos with time for a shirt change.

We were lucky enough to take newborn photos and we love getting to see our babies grow up! Isn't he adorable??  It took him a few minutes to warm up to us but then it was all smiles and giggles. He loved banging on the metal pail and he was enthralled with the balloons. He even figured out how to grab the string and walk his hands up the string to bring the balloon closer to him. Pretty brilliant, if you ask me!

Thank you to the Oates Family for entrusting us with capturing memories that they can keep for a lifetime.

We love, love, love to be part of happy surprises...and this surprise 16th birthday shoot was a great one!  The girls got all dressed up, went to a super fancy late lunch / early dinner and then got dropped off with me!  They had no idea what they were there for, but we spent the next half hour having a great time!  Boas, hats and balloons helped to bring on the fun!  The birthday girl got special pics with all of her besties and they all made some fun memories!  

What a great idea!  A surprise photo shoot for your teen or tween and all of her friends!  Eek!!  So much fun!  Such good friends!

It's Senior Season and that makes us SOOOO dang happy!  We love getting to spend time with kiddos that we've known forever or kiddos that we just met!  We love hearing about their big plans for the future and sharing in this excitement with them!  

So...let me tell you about this great kiddo that I was lucky enough to spend some time with!  Madison is one super sweet girlie who reeeeallllyyy isn't into taking pictures!  She isn't one who would use the word "fun" to describe a photo shoot.  BUT...I think we may have changed her mind!  We had fun on her Senior "adventure shoot"!  Went on a little hike, ran into some crazy teens and I protected her and her mom from a gang of dogs!  You know, just your ordinary photo shoot!  :)  Sounds kind of dangerous, but I promise it wasn't!  
I think the gang of dogs may have just licked us to death!
 
We had lots of laughs along the way...love that!  In fact, her mom said, "Madison actually enjoyed the shoot!  It was a great experience."  Yay!  I love hearing that about our shoots!  
Madison did a fantastic job and is such a beautiful girl with a beautiful heart. 
 
 I LOVE spending time with these amazing Seniors!  
Best of luck to you Madison...dream big girlie!

​It’s one of the best years of your life...your Senior year of high school!  A year of fun times, great friends and looking ahead to a bright future.  But before you walk that stage, you’ve got to have your senior pictures taken!  And that’s where we come in…

We know this year will be one of the best, but also one of the busiest!  I'm sure you've already started making a mental list of all of the "Senior Stuff" that you have to get done!  There's a lot to do!  We can help you with one of those items on your list, senior portraits!  We love spending time with our Seniors...getting to know them, hearing about their big plans and capturing their unique spirit in front of the camera!

A lot of people wait until April or May to book those senior portraits and that's totally ok.  BUT, what if you booked early?  September and October are great months to shoot in!  One advantage of booking your senior session early is, then you get to use those pictures all year long!  You might need photos for a slide show, a program, parties and even for that college application!  So booking early will not only mark one thing off of that long list, but also benefit you all year long!

We have several great senior packages to pick from with prices starting at only $250.  We can also help you with invitations, thank you cards and more.  Looking for a custom app for you phone with all of your pictures in one spot?  We got you covered!  Does Mom want a large canvas of her favorite senior?  No problem!  We can help you decide on the right package that fits your budget and help with all of those extra items as well!

Are you a Hendrickson High School Senior?  Guess what...we have a HHS cap and gown!  So your session will automatically include a couple of great shots in the cap and gown.  Not your typical studio cap and gown shot, but a picture that you will love taken at a cool location!  Not a HHS student?  That's ok!  We can change the color of our cap and gown to match your school color!  

So go ahead and check out our site or give us a buzz to book that senior portrait session!  Start marking items off of that list now so you're not stressed about pictures at the end of the year! 
This is an example of the navy cap and gown that we turned purple to match this handsome young man's school colors!
