The first session of it kind....for us, anyway! 

This session was completely inspired by the Sweet 16 girl! We had a super fun brainstorming session and I'm thrilled with the results! (The other girls in the session are her very closest friends.) This session was very timely, not only because of her 16th birthday, but also because she has just moved away and had to leave her treasured friendships behind. 

What a blessing this girl (and her family) have been to my life in the past year. They are amazing people and I could talk about all of them for hours. Instead, I'll just leave you with some super fun images! Check it...

Ohhh, to be a teenager again! No thanks, actually. I'm good. 
Hope when my kids are teens they are as sweet and intelligent as these kids! Enjoy our Urban Senior Prom session!

Seniors that come to us are looking for something different and there's not many things that we love more than giving our clients something different. After having our dream big session, we came up with a few concepts that we both ended up absolutely loving! There's almost a quiet energy to the images here. Almost intoxicating. I couldn't pinpoint which I love most, actually shooting the session or the way the images turned out. Both are equally as wonderful as the other.

If you are struggling with what colors and styles to wear for your session, take a few of these things into consideration. 1) what colors/tonality and style is the room you will be displaying your session in? You want to compliment the room. Just as if you were buying a fine art painting, you would select your colors and style of clothing in the same manner. 2) what is "normal" wear for your family? If you are a jeans and trendy top kind of family or if you're an everyday khaki family, you should dress for your session how you are most comfortable. This will allow you to be more relaxed, as well as relieve some pressure from feeling as though you need to  "dress the part". 

This family is a great example.
