Mooresville H.S. Senior Mariah Wyatt

Mariah.

I what I could say about Mariah. But I will restrain myself.

Obviously the camera LOVES her. She is a natural beauty. She is a leader. She is confident, funny, and sweet.
She is a terrific softball player with a bright future ahead of her.

This session started at her house with her dad warning us to "not take too long". It was Mike's birthday and Heather and the girls were taking him out to Red Lobster to celebrate is 50th birthday...okay is 40th. Sorry Mike, had to do it!

Mariah is unbelievably natural in front of the camera. We would hop out at a spot to shoot and she needed NO instruction from me.

Thanks Mariah and family for a great evening!

Segovia/Williams Family

We weren't even sure we would get it in. It was supposed to rain. Then wasn't. But just as we were winding down the cold autumn drizzle began.

You would think a toddler would immediately run for cover. Not Abby. She was content nearly the whole shoot to explore and be outside rain or shine. She was terrific!

We got some great shots and I hope to work with this family many more times in the future!

Thanks Sean, Kasey and of course...ABBY!

Wollenburg.Fall2010.

Pink.Cute.Wide-eyed.Adorable.

These are just a few words to describe the shoot I had last weekend with Ms "E" and Ms "O". We spent some time getting to know each other but it wasn't long before we were off and running. Literally.

Rebecca brought some fun little pink chairs and some of the girls favorite things. I know at this age it can seem as if it's chaos just chasing and shooting, repositioning and bribing, but at the end of the day...we got some keepers! And the images aren't too bad either...

Thanks Wollenburg's and I hope we can do it again soon.

Bungard's Fall 2010

We weren't able to beat the odds the first time around. 2 days of rain in the last 3 months and we picked one.

But we tried again last week and we had a great day. Dry, brown sunny. But beautiful none the less.

I could post dozens of the "Avatude" as Bj and Kellie refer to it. But here are just a few of Ava, Truitt and their parents...

Ashtyn.Grant.ClassOf2011.

Ashtyn is yet another one of my senior "reps". I have known Ash long enough to remember when we called her "tiny feet". The Fisher family is as close to family as friends get.

I am so glad I got to shoot Ashtyn's senior sessions. We have done a few different little shoots for volleyball and to capture her grandma's beautiful spring flowers. We have some more plans to shoot in the spring as well. And just last weekend we were able to do a much bigger session with her boyfriend Grant out near his home in Eminence.

The Shupe's live on a farm and so the places to shoot were nearly endless. Grant's mom took us to a great bridge, open fields and Brett Fisher even found us some great "unused" spots!
Grant attends Eminence High School and loves basketball and of course he kinda likes Ashtyn too! But who wouldn't? Have you seen her?

Ashtyn is sweet, reliable and so much fun to be around.
And though I haven't spent tons of time with Grant, if Ashtyn likes him, he can't be too bad ;)

Monrovia H.S. Senior Eryn Dillon. Fall Session

The first time I met Eryn she was 8 years old and no bigger than a minute.
I was coaching 10U fastpitch and she was BY FAR the tiniest one on the team. It was her first year of fastpitch and my first year coaching. When I asked the girls who would like to try catching for our pitcher (who threw nearly 50mph as a ten year old and stood nearly 2x Eryn's size) a tiny little hand in the back of the crowd raised. It was Eryn.

She was a natural. She was fast, strong, and understood the game. Since then she has grown...a little :) I love watching her play! Our families have become great friends and I hope we have many more opportunities to hang out with the Dillons.

Eryn is an amazing young Christian woman with a terrific future ahead of her.

She is now in her senior year and made a verbal commitment over the summer to play softball at IUPUI next fall.  Good luck Eryn!

”‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Orchard Mini-session day 2010

We planned this day for more than a month.
10 sessions were booked (7 more families were turned away...:( )
The day started out cool and cloudy...great day to shoot.

We were able to get 3 sessions in before the rain came. I am hoping to do find a way to photograph the other families before the end of the year.

Here is what we DID get!

















There is nothing I love more than being behind a camera capturing life’s moments - wonderful, funny, messy, precious, indescribable, irreplaceable,memorable moments.
