I promised a part 2 for Steph’s Trash the Dress series because we weren’t able to do the water portion the last go around. We did a couple different locations first before we headed to the beach. We did have to “kick” a few kids out of the water first, lol…but luckily it was my daughter and her friends so she knew just to get out of my shots! lol! I had so much fun doing these with Steph, such a stunning model to work with and not afraid of doing anything! Those rock crevices made me nervous but not Steph! Though we did lose a shoe in a deep one, thankfully my hubby went to the rescue and got it out for her! lol! (I have a great shot of that but dang it he doesn’t want me to “blog” him!)

I am such a tight up close head shot shooter that I am totally falling in love with using more of the environment in my images lately. I am enjoying stepping back and getting more into the shot.

Thank you so much Steph for doing these with me, for climbing rocks and laying in the water for I am sure was much longer than needed, but I am SO in love with these images that I just can’t thank you enough!!!! And a big thank you to Emma for coming along and Gary for being the most wonderful assistant/reflector/shoe rescuer ever!

Again sharing WAY too many, but couldn’t narrow them down! Enjoy!

I really think that I am going to call these sessions ROCK THAT DRESS, because to me “trash the dress” really makes me think we are wrecking/trashing it and I like to think we are ROCKING it rather! lol!

















I had such fun with Sam and Kelsey today! Just look at those beautiful girls and their lovely Grad dresses!!! Just gorgeous!!! I love when friends come to get pics done! I wish I had done that with some of my good friends when I graduated!

I hope you like your sneak peek girls!  And congrats on your graduation!

Where did the time go? I remember when Becky was just a wee baby, and here it is her Graduation around the corner! What a stunningly beautiful young lady she is! The dress is simply gorgeous and LOOK at those shoes! I had a little cry editing these…Auntie’s can do that! (Mom have you got your Kleenex handy!!!)

I am glad Tyler and Toews came too, aren’t they handsome? LOL!!!

I hope you like your sneak peek Becky, and wish you so much happiness in the years ahead! Love you lots sweetie!!!

Well Grad 2011 is just around the corner, wow where did the year go??? I was so excited when Jessie emailed to book a session, she is such a beautiful girl and couldn’t wait to see her dress! Isn’t she gorgeous!!! So hard to believe she is all grown up and graduating…wow time flys!

I had a really hard time picking my favs for a sneak peek, as I loved them all!

Jessie, congrats on your upcoming graduation, and I wish you all the best in the future. And a big thank you to Michael for helping with my reflector when we were outside!

Enjoy your sneak peek, and will be in touch soon with the rest!

Beauty… when you look into a woman’s eyes and see what is in her heart.  ~Nate Dirck
I had such a wonderful time with Paige during our session, I swear I could have kept shooting forever!  Her beauty just beams, with a smile that could warm anyone’s heart. My studio is in my home but over the holidays I run out of space once our tree is up. It was so nice to have the rented the hall for a few days, I felt like I had so much room to move!!!! lol! Something one could get very very use to! I used my favorite lens and never took it off the whole session!!!!

I hope your flight home was a good one Paige, and I hope you like the sneak peek…had a hard time picking as I had SO many favorites!!!! Enjoy!!!!

WOW! Where did our little girls go? When did they turn into such beautiful young ladies? Seriously these pictures take my breath away…such beauties! The school formal Christmas Dance is tonight and there was no way I wasn’t getting portraits of these three best friends! Though my poor son didn’t get his done (lol, he wasn’t too hurt!) seeing as I had the cranberry backdrop up…but he did agree to take some tomorrow!

I promised the girls while they were out dancing up a storm that I would put these up for them! Some favs! Hope they are having a magical evening!

Well, I have to say that I am so glad Jessica called and wanted to get her portraits done! Isn’t she just stunning!!! We had a lot of fun doing these and she even took me to a new favorite location just a hop skip and jump from my house!!! (even though we were swarmed with bugs, it was SO WORTH IT!) Congratulations Jessica on your graduation! A new part of your life awaits you girl and I know you will accomplish wonderful things! Hugs and hope you like! Talk soon!
