We always encourage high school seniors to bring a friend to their custom photography session. It often helps them to relax and enjoy the experience a little more. In this case it was a sister best friend! One of the things that we do is help our clients to choose the outfits that will photograph well, make the feel the best, and of course, be the most flattering and fun. Bonus with Carol and Claire is there closet is interchangeable! After selecting several outfits for each girl we headed into Charleston to the beach. We of course had to get in some shots of both girls separately and together. In this “Not quite High School Senior Photography Session” we were able to capture a little of this girl and her HUGE personality. Claire is beautiful and kind. She is the youngest and full of spunk and never ending personality. We can’t wait until it’s her turn for her Custom Senior Photography Session!
There’s a lot more black and white in this High School Senior Photo Session then you usually see. There’s plenty of color too I promise! This sneak peek I just couldn’t resist these black and whites because B&W and freckles make me swoon. We combined this Berkeley High School Senior’s love of the beach and pretty dresses with her love for soccer. She is a fierce soccer player with a heart of gold. Even when I heard her telling stories of something that had gone wrong or something bad that had happened she always told it with a kind, positive perspective. This incredible woman is going to change the world just by being a part of it and we are so lucky she is! I can’t wait to see what the next few years hold for her!
We are working on a personal project that is close to our heart. It is a project that brings passion, life stages, love, memories, and the celebration of women together!
Deadline: The project will involve several photo shoots (one model for each is needed) and so there will be several deadlines. The first of which is April 8, 2017.
ISO: The number one criteria is that you must be (or have been, for our more mature models) a NATURAL redheaded female. Freckles are always a plus. We are looking for redheads of all ages, newborn to great-great-great Grandma’s. We need to cover a HUGE range of ages so all ages please!
You are responsible for bringing an agreed upon wardrobe with you, which we will discuss ahead of time (it’ll be simple, I promise). You will be required to have professional hair and makeup done for the session. Session will take place during best light in Argyle, NY.
What you get: The session fee is waived and includes 3 high resolution files with printing rights and online gallery. Enjoy 30% off any additional digital files, prints or wall portraits and 15% off books/albums. Discount applies only to images from the stylized shoot.
If you don’t fit this criteria but know someone that does…please share!! To apply please send an image of yourself with your contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org

In this day and age I truly believe that every professional woman needs a professional headshot. More then a professional headshot, she needs images that show who she is as a person and as a business professional. We have designed a photo session just for this purpose! A personal branding photography session is designed with you in mind. Personal branding sessions are designed to show who you are, what you do, and what people can expect from you all in one image. This is more then just a headshot. These personal branding images are an expression of who you are. Beyond the basic business headshot we also like to have a little fun!
I can always count on my friend Erin from Erin Marie Photography to look amazing! Hair and Make-up by the very talented Tina Felton. Her and I have been planning this session for months! The stars all aligned and we were able to get together for a couple of hours and just play. Isn’t she just stunning?!!
Words cannot express what this girl means to me. She has been nothing but kind and caring from the beginning. She is loving and accepting. She is loyal and always there when I need her. We met many years ago when I hadn’t lived in this area for very long. I often felt alone and so very far from home. Home is where there is love and friends who are willing to let themselves in so their kids can use your bathroom!!!
This is always the hardest part, where to begin. Love is never simple and therefore can be so difficult to describe. The best love is kind. The best love can be seen and felt; it is full of patience and understanding. The best kind of love can be seen in the eyes and in the way two people’s hearts connect. Love isn’t a one time thing. Love happens, continues, and stays when two people choose to constantly give of themselves and fall in love over and over again. This is the kind of love that Wayne and Emily share. We have known Wayne and Emily both for several years now. The Lord puts people into our lives, personally, professionally, or sometimes just for a moment, but he puts them there because it is RIGHT. We are so blessed to be a small part of Wayne and Emily’s story.
I photographed Emily as a model for some commercial work I was doing. I knew right then and there I HAD to photograph her wedding. Then they met, fell in love, and eloped! The perfect story for this amazing pair!
After 1 year of marriage they set a date to be sealed together for time and all eternity in the Palmyra, New York Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was so honored to be a part of this day. What a joy it was to photograph this step in their journey together!
We had this gorgeous day with friends to soak in the sun and worship The Son. It was perfect. Congratulations you two!!

I met this family through a friend of a friend I think! Beth is one of the kindest women I’ve ever met. The first time I photographed them their youngest was just a baby. I love when I get to watch kids grow! It took a few fake farting noises and lots of the the words like “poop” and “fart” to get these boys to relax. Oh and yeah and maybe a few sticks too. But between Dan and I we were able to win them over! We had so much fun at their house. The boys gave us a full tour of their little corner of the earth that felt a bit like heaven that day!
