Senior Class of 2018 | Alivia

Alivia's senior photoshoot was lovely.  We thought we were in for spotty weather, but we plunged ahead anyways and were pleasantly surprised with how things turned out in the Mother Nature department. Not only did Alivia's parents find a perfectly blooming dogwood tree, but we had a wonderful time wandering around Sperr Memorial Park with a gorgeous sun setting over the pond and a lot of laughs as Alivia's Mom and sister and I deliberated about outfit and prop options. I love the results!  Couldn't have planned it better if I tried (and trust me, I do try!) Congrats Alivia, and all my best wishes for a wonderful summer and start of college!      Like these photos? Book your family or senior session today! August is quickly filling up, so don't

Three Ways I Make Senior Sessions More Interesting

Senior year is so important. And those photos are a big deal, too. You really need to commemorate your senior's accomplishments and you also want to freeze this moment in time for yourself... that moment where they're standing at the edge of adulthood and they're about to fly! And I really work hard to make senior sessions interesting. Here's how...     1. Variety. Look, I know you're just as sick as I am of looking at the same old boring poses of seniors. I will work up a sweat if that's what it takes to get authentic photos of your kid. Also they're really gonna need a killer headshot going forward and I've definitely got that covered. We look for interesting spots and we try interesting poses and I shake things up as much as I can.     2. Unconventional Props. I don't have a dog (or a cat or a mouse or a parrot or whatever) but I know your senior loves the family pet. And I know they're looking down the barrel of their last year at

Class of 2016 | Julz | Corning Photographer

Walking around downtown Corning with Julz in 70 degree weather was definitely an awesome way to end my fall photography. We found so many great gems for her photos! I so appreciated her willingness to try anything! There were a couple times she looked at me like "uhhh seriously?" and I'm like "trust me it feels weird but it will look great!" and I think the following photos prove just how important a photographer-client team is. Working together with my clients to create images they love is always a challenge - but it's so rewarding when when we find that sweet spot. And we got to enjoy some of my favorite fall colors right before the leaves flittered down for the season! Thanks for the awesome photo walk Julz! Congrats on your senior year and best wishes for a bright
