I’ve photographed almost everything now, and while the variety gives my creative juices a chance to make something deliciously new I find that there are certain session types that match me perfectly! The ones where I just know I’m in my element. Seniors always put me in my special “happy place”!

This is beautiful Courtney! This was Courtney’s second session with me. We started at the beginning of her Senior year and now that graduation is right around the corner, it was time to finish the story! As always, Courtney was fantastic. You would never know it to look at her, but the girl is freezing! While I was bundled up in a sweatshirt, coat, jeans and socks she looks like the perfect picture of spring (excuse the pun) at a very early hour and the weather is anything but spring-like. Being that Miss Courtney is a fabulous golfer, we wanted to shoot on a golf course this time, which was great except that we had to be off certain holes before golfers came through. In order to accomplish this, Courtney was up at 5:30 getting ready to meet me so that we could get to the golf course in time. Lesser women (ummmm me!) would be showing all kinds of morning fatigue but even in the early hours of a very cold morning, she’s still stunning!
