It's hard to believe this gorgeous young lady is going to be a senior! It seems like just yesterday she was that little girl hanging out in Grandpa's barn, decked out in pink, and singing Toby Keith songs (seriously she was like three belting out "I ain't as good as I once was", and I as a teenager thought it was the funniest thing ever lol!). It has truly been an honor to watch her grow into the amazing young woman she is today. Syd is kind, smart, and compassionate. She truly is beautiful inside and out, and I know she is going to go on to do great things! With all that said, here are some sneak peeks from round one of her senior session... :)
What a great way to kick off the Class of 2020 senior picture season! I just love Miss Peyton! I have enjoyed having her in class and getting to work with her in Student Council. She is such a sweetheart and truly is beautiful inside and out! Peyton chose to take her pictures around her Aunt Jackie's property. It has an awesome cabin with a gorgeous lake, barns, and lots more pretty picture spots. Here are some highlights from her gorgeous session... :)
I am honored to have been asked to photograph this amazing couple! We had scheduled their session for a couple weeks before but had to reschedule due to all the rain we got! However, I think it all worked out perfectly because we were blessed with a GORGEOUS spring day! We started off their session in their field beside their house. We then went down the road to Brody's grandparents house and got some pictures with the cool old barns there! I LOVED the old sheep barn (see picture above!). Then we finished off with some pictures at Dolan Lake. Here are some sneak peeks of their session... :)
I say this all the time, but I really do have the greatest job ever! For those who don't know, I am a high school history teacher from HCSH who takes photos on the side. Between these two jobs, I have gotten the honor of working with some incredible people. I met Tyson this fall while I was taking senior pictures of his gorgeous girlfriend, Kambria. He is so down to earth and such a sweet young man. I was excited when I was asked to take his senior pictures too! I took just a few pictures of him this past fall so he'd have something to meet the yearbook deadline. He was really hoping we'd get a good snow and do winter pictures, but that didn't quite work out! Instead we got a cold, muddy day, but despite that, I think it was an amazing senior session! We started out at the Big Red Barn and then moved on to his dad's house for some pictures with his horses, and then his mom's house for pictures with his dog and his step-dad's awesome 1968 Ford (I ove old trucks!). We finished the session off at the high school for his basketball shots! Here are some sneak peeks from his session... :)
Mr. and Mrs. Nevarez were married on October 20, 2018 at the Big Red Barn in McLeansboro. I feel so honored to have been asked to have been a part of this gorgeous day! It was a lovely fall day - windy, but so was their engagement session last fall so apparently that's just meant to be lol - but other than that, everything was flawless! The bride looked absoltutely stunning and made sure that everything, down to the smallest detail, was perfect! Kelsi and Jesse were so much fun to work with, both at their wedding and at their engagement session, because they are both very sweet and incredibly photogenic. And, most importantly, because you can tell they are crazy about each other! Here are some highlights from their wedding day...
I just finished up part two of gorgeous Miss Corrie's senior session! Even though we didn't get the fall colored leaves yet, it was a beautiful day for pictures. I have had so much fun working with Corrie these past two sessions. She truly is one of the most down to Earth young ladies I have worked with. She is so sweet and easy going! I wish her only the best as she finishes up this last year of high school and as she begins the next chapter of her life very soon! I am excited to see where Corrie goes in life. I know without a doubt she is capable of great things! Here are some highlights from her senior session (starting at the Big Red Barn)... :)
I got to photograph the lovely Billington twins! I just love these two girls! They are so sweet and have such a loving heart! Plus they crack me up (I'm still laughing at the practice round of senior pictures you ladies took lol). Sarah is one of my Student Council kids this year, and she is always very helpful. Plus my little girl thinks she's wonderful! She works at the daycare where my daughter goes, so I hear lots of good things about "Miss Sarah." Kate is such a doll too. She is an animal lover, and I loved talking to her last year in history class about shelters and dogs that needed a home (this is something also dear to my heart). I really do miss getting to have these ladies in class this year. They are both amazing young women, and I know they are going to do great things in their lives! Here are some highlights from their gorgeous session out at Barker's Lake! :)
