I had so much fun at this session. Aleks, his mom, and I had only met briefly before, so I was excited to get to know them better! They are so sweet and were great to work with! I’m so thrilled about how awesome the shoot was and how much I love the photos! I hope that yall enjoy them as well. 🙂

Thank you guys! It was a blast! 🙂

Do you remember that kid from Kinder that led his team to the football state championship, won, and then spent his first moments of victory consoling the OTHER team’s quarterback? (If you don’t, shame… You should google it!)

Well, I got to take his senior photos. 🙂

I’ve known Austin for many years now! He and my little brother (Brad) were besties growing up and had a lot of cute moments like this:

And more recently:

Because of that fact, it was no surprise to me that Austin showed such grace and empathy during the state championship. Knowing him for most of his life, I would expect nothing less! He and his family are some of the best people around and I was so honored to work with them to commemorate the end of this era of his life!

Here are a few of my favorites from his senior session:

To the entire Pickle family- thank you for including me in Austin’s senior year! I know that he will go on to do amazing things and I wish him luck!

Also, to make up for posting what Austin and Brad may consider to be “embarrassing” childhood photos, I’ll include one of me and Austin’s brother, Jordan, from the most awkward time of anyone’s life: middle school. 🙂


There, now we’re even. 🙂

Readers, up next is Aleks’s senior session, so stay tuned!

I recently had the honor of photographing the Shipman wedding! Tiffany and her new hubby are so nice and I loved working with them. While their engagement photos have already been posted, I am just now getting a chance to share her bridal photos. While I’m at it, I figured that I should go ahead and reveal some of the wedding photos as well. 🙂 So here you go:

And now for the wedding…

I loved this wedding for my reasons! Most of all, though, I loved Tiffany’s attitude through it all. No stress. No crying. No nervous breakdowns. (Not that any of my brides do… What can I say? I have the best! :)) She was cool, calm, and collected, just going with the flow and enjoying her day. She is smiling in nearly every photo that I’ve processed thus far. That’s how a wedding should be, folks. 🙂

Tiffany and Garrett- Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful experience! I can’t wait to share the rest of your photos with you. 🙂
