I Can See the Gears Turning

There is a particular electric excitement when you’re in the stands at a high school robotics competition.  Teams across the nation have been given the same problem to solve within the same parameters, and they have shown up to the competition field with wildly different solutions – all which rely on any number of details […]

Bugs and Beauty

That’s probably the oddest title I have ever used for a senior session post, but with this beauty amid all the flowers and with her VW bug, it couldn’t be helped!  But I assure you, the VW bug was the only bug we saw during this session. This senior’s older sister was one of the […]

Strong in Spirit

She laughed at Montana winters, challenging them in her springtime wardrobe.  She laughed at summers in Central America, facing them with her airy favoritism toward vacations.  When she dedicated herself to a sport she loves, she agreed with the training discipline it required with grit and grins.  When life brought dire challenges, she fought back […]

Flexibility and Grace

Have you ever experienced prolonged déjà vu?  When my former college roommate booked me for her daughter’s senior photos, it was major déjà vu!  Most of the time, this senior was very much her own person, but then she would turn or smile a certain way and I was instantly 20-some years younger laughing with […]

Built for Adventure

Some people are born with adventure in their souls, and this senior is one of them.  The oldest child of parents who met while getting their degrees in adventure (I mean, camp ministry and leadership development), this senior from the Class of 2023 uses every ounce of energy in him to pursue his own adventures.  […]

My One and Only

This one is different.  This post, this senior session.  It’s very different because it’s my own son!  Frankly, I wasn’t sure I would be posting.  In my photography journey, all the blogs say, “practice on your own kids.”  Well, I only have one and he wasn’t up for me learning about exposure, aperture, and shutter […]

Family Resemblance

The family resemblance is striking.  Sure, this adorable little girl with her clear blue eyes and incredible natural blonde mohawk is the spitting image of her mom, but she's also the spitting image of her grandma and great-grandmother.  Not just in looks, either.

A Boy and His Loves

There are a few special bonds in this world when it comes to boys:  A boy and his dog, a boy and his mom, and a boy and his truck.  And for a growing number of guys, a boy and his gaming system.  This session included them all!  Even though his mom wasn't in any of the photos, all the smiles thrown off camera were because she was there in the fan section.

Sweet 16

You know what a golden birthday is? It's when your age matches the day you were born. This beauty turned 16 on the 16th, making it her SWEET golden birthday. Of course we started her Sweet 16 session at my favorite bakery - @sweetpaigescakes!

I Finally Understand Meekness!

It happened again. It was the start of a great sermon, but I got distracted.  Not by the man yawning, making his moustache curl up into a curious shape while endlessly tapping on his phone, and not by the pattern of light splayed across the walls.  I got distracted by a side reference the pastor […]

A Super Family

People who spend any time with me at all know that I have 30 ideas in my head at any one time.  This one started as I was helping my friend, Sarah, rethink her web site and social media content.  It happened that she had been contracted to create a cosplay costume of Scarlett Witch […]
