As I look through these images, I get a strong sense of peace and relaxation. 
It's a feeling that makes my shoulders subconsciously rest and takes my mind to a place far away...a Saturday in the mountains with no agenda, perhaps. 

I love getting to know my clients before our session. I had the opportunity to get to know this girl before she knew me (well, before she knew I was a photographer). My son and her little brother were on the same baseball team together and so we would get to chat at their games. Near the end of the season, connections were made and the family allowed me to document her senior portraits. 

Her sweet spirit inspires me. Her dreams, ambition and love for life is exhilarating. Her look is "beauty" in it's purest form. Overused or not....she's just beautiful.

I love the simplicity of this session. It feels good to me.
 
The family is gorgeous and just as sweet as they are beautiful. When she came in to see the images, I couldn't contain myself. I cried for her! Ridiculous, I know. Just couldn't help it. 
Her boys are growing up, graduating, moving out...they're just in a new phase of life and it made me sad to think that one day in the not so distant future, Kevin and I will have to go through that, too. Oh Lord, I'm gonna start crying again! 

Isn't it funny how we spend our whole lives as parents preparing our kids for "this" moment and when it comes, we don't want to let go. Seems like it should be easier knowing the goal has been achieved. Not to say that parenting is over at 18/college by any means, but just leaving the nest, ya know? Heck...I'm saying *we* don't want to let go...I'm just flashing forward. I know I won't want to let go. All of my sentences are running together, I'm rambling. Sorry. Sigh....

Let's just say I was totally WOWed by the amount of work this senior put in to our session. 
She went garage sale-ing, antiquing at g'mas house, shopping at Anthropologie THEN loaded up a car full of props and furniture to use for our shoot. It was fantastically fantastic. 
I felt like a kid in a candy store. So much fun pulling all of things together to create a stylish, yet significant senior session!!!

The idea came in from Erin ....we loved the way she pitched it, so we thought we'd share it with you .....

"Mom in 50's style type dress and apron rolling her eyes with a martini in hand - and four kids around kitchen floor - one is covered in flour, one is a chocolate mess, one with a huge spill of milk on the ground with a milk mustache and one crying and running...
 
That is how i am feeling today - nice, huh???"
 
We LOVED the concept and the execution was more fun than I dreamed it would be. She even bought real Bon Bons! Too fun! Congratulations on being the Big Winner of our contest, Erin! Your book is in the works!

This is great!!! And I'm sure she'd have the kids, as well as the house, all cleaned up with dinner on the table before daddy gets home from work!!! Very cute!
