Stormy & Damon {Idaho Falls Engagement Photographer}

December 02, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I know, I don't normally do couples but when your bride was on your senior model team last year and basically a second daughter, you jump at the chance to shoot something a little different. 

I have to tell you, Stormy has been part of our family as our second daughter for so many years! So many sleep overs, so many ups and downs. My daughters ride and die. These girls went through so much together, good times, bad times and really really hard times. Now, I am a pretty modest photographer and I really aim to be age appropriate with my seniors. So, changing from Senior brain to an intimate couple session took conscious
effort. Stormy is a natural in front of the camera, Damon is so calm and cool and would do anything for Stormy. It was fun! 

Now, Married with a house, these two have a world of adventure in front of them. It is bittersweet to see the kids grow up and move away but so excited to see where life takes them. 


Kaebree & Jarrett: The Traveling Dress {Idaho Falls Senior Photographer}

October 14, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

You can read about the Traveling Dress project in my previous post here and check out Mariah's few shots with the dress. We did Mariah's session at the same time as her senior session, so it was not quite as themed and not quite as focused as Kaebree and Jarrett's shoot. Kaebree and Jarrett did a full evening with me on the other hand. We take the schedules we can get with these busy teens!!

I wanted to pull in another character then just my beautiful girl in a dress. Jarrett was more then willing to tux up and play a part in the story. Now these two get told they are the cutest couple all the time, but they have never been and very doubtfully ever will be more then friends. They are the bestest of friends though and I have been waiting for a Jarrett to come into Kaebree's life for years. Fiercely loyal, dedicated, caring and honest. Someone to keep her head clear and motivate her and I am sure she brings a little wild and carefree into his life as well. 

This feel to this shoot brings me to a show that I was slightly obsessed with for a bit, Gossip Girl. The Upper Manhattan feel with parties and formal wear. I wanted to try to not be so Prom-y. I hope that I was able to portray that is these shots. You tell me!

  

 


Mariah: The Traveling Dress {Idaho Falls Senior Photographer}

October 14, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Late last year I joined a group of 24 photographers from across the US in a Traveling Dress project through SeniorMuse. There were 2 dresses and 12 photographers each dress. Now, I am not certain if all 12 were able to shoot their dress, Covid kind of skewed the plans and timelines. 

The idea behind the Traveling Dress is that you'll see what 12 photographers do differently with the dress when it is their week to shoot with it. The rules were keep the dress clean and dry, no colored smoke bombs, no water, no fires. No more then 3 models per photographer, and they had to be a 2019, 2020 or2021 senior. 

We had to submit the photos to them to feature on the Instagram page before we were able to share them, so I held the images back from my models till after they were featured. They have been featured, so I can share them with you here! Go check out the other shoots. If you feel inclined, give mine a heart while you are there! 

First Mariah and I headed to the desert for some sagebrush shots. We grabbed a few with the dress during her senior session. 
She is truly stunning!! 

The fun part about the Traveling Dress project is that all my models will be publish in the next SeniorMuse magazine!

I can't wait to see this beauty in print!  


Addison: Class of 2021 {Idaho Falls Senior Photographer}

I love it when Seniors start a session by saying that they are awkward or unphotogenic and then they nail the session like they have been modeling their entire lives! Addison started her session that way too, but she was a natural! Absolutely Beautiful! 

I know I say it ALL THE TIME, but I really do have the most beautiful seniors. Not just physically either. I have not had a senior (or family) that has not been a dream to work with to date! I am truly blessed with the top notch clients! Humble, kind and BEAUTIFUL! 

This session was fun and it has been a location I have loved using this year. (I do that! I will find a location that I love and use it more one year and then the next year, I won't shoot there at all, and I rotate it back in later.) 

Here are a handful of my favorites from Addison's session.

This year is just surreal for me. Not only do I have my own senior, all of her classmates are right there with her. Kenzie and my daughter went to elementary school together and  they were good friends in middle school before they went down their different paths in high school. McKenzie is as sweet as can be, is very fun to watch on the basketball court and HELLO, She is so beautiful! 

Thanks for a fun afternoon Kenzie! Congratulations on Senior Year!
