Welcome 2018 Senior Models

Please help me welcome our 2018 senior models.  If you follow us on Instagram, then you have already started seeing their beautiful faces. Our senior models do more than just model for us.  They are our street team… they representatives us around the community.  Our models help keep us informed of things that are going on at their schools and around town. AND they occasionally label post cards and assist me on shoots. These kids are invaluable to me!!

My last post says it all…

I have taken a little break from my blog and now that I have re-read my last post, I mean it even more.  You see… in January of this year, my husband… my partner of 23 years… had a bad motorcycle accident and passed away. So, what I have felt in the past, I’m even more passionate about now.  I treasure every minute we spent together.  Even the tough ones.

I have beautiful portraits of him and my family. We had tons of experiences and milestones together and I have pictures of all of it.

As Dr. Seuss once said “Don’t cry because it’s over.  Smile because it happened”

I am grateful for every second that I got to spend with my husband, my best friend, the father of my children.

Live in the Moment

Summer is fast and furious for me… a senior, wedding and family photographer.  Some might call me “just a photographer” but it’s not like that… not at all.  My seniors, brides, and families invite me into their personal lives to share their very important life milestones.

If I was “just a photographer” then I wouldn’t get this lump in my throat as a dad walks his daughter down the aisle to hand her future over to a young man that can’t possibly love her as much as he does…

…or when I see endless tweets of last season’s high school seniors packing their cars to head off to college. Who is going to feed them, protect them, love them?

Live_In_The_Moment_Blog 4 Being a mother and daughter myself, I can feel both sides of the fence.  I remember how excited I was to marry the love of my life. But, I remember my dad asking me if I was sure I was ready.

I also remember packing my car and heading off to college.  I was SO excited.  But, I also remember my parents driving off without me.

The funny thing is that we all know it’s coming.  At the start of our senior year, or the beginning of your engagement, we know where we are headed.  If we prepare properly, then we are ready.  It’s the way life goes. Ready or not, it’s time.

As summer is winding down, I continue to share these life milestones with my families. I’m technically “just your photographer” but, really I feel more like part of your family.

So, from the family member who is on the outside looking in, my advice to each one of my 2016 seniors, parents of 2016 seniors, brides, grooms, parents of my bride and grooms, and now my 2017 seniors and their parents…

Behind the Scenes of A Carrollton Photography Studio

I was in a hurry yesterday to finish up a senior mailer. I needed to get it to the printer before the end of the day.  The only thing left was to inset images of my studio.  Well… The hold up wasn’t that i couldn’t take the images, it was that my office and studio were a mess.  I just haven’t had time to clean.

So, I did what any other mother, photographer, business owner, wife, person, would do.  I moved all the “junk” to the opposite side of the room.  So, when you get our mailer in your mailbox, you will see a fresh, beautiful, clean studio.  I thought it was funny, so I took pictures of the “other” side of the room and texted them to my best friend.  It made her laugh. So, I started thinking… everyone knows that I’m not a great house keeper.  I like to see the work that I need to do, so I always have stacks of papers on my desk. I didn’t think anyone would believe that my office was clean anyway.

So, here it is.  The “clean” side of my office and the “other” side. HA

It just reminds you that what you see in life is only what people want you to see. Once you see the behind the scenes, you know the full story.
