Briggs | Football Senior Portraits

Being a senior in high school is a special time of life, the last year of childhood, the last year before becoming an adult, the last year before huge life changes and decisions. A little extra attention for your senior can help highlight this time of their life. I love sessions where we can focus on their specific interests, hobbies, and talents. Over the years, I’ve done senior sessions with piano, guitar, dance, soccer, track, football, volleyball, wrestling, golf, basketball, horses, scouting, cars, mountain bikes, and each one has been really, REALLY fun. I love seeing these kids in their element and they always teach me something about their sport/interest. Let’s face it, I’m not a golfer, so I really have no idea what I’m doing out there on the green 😉 As part of their session, they get to show off their skills which is so fun! Whether it’s doing bicycle kicks, grand jetes, or running passing routes repeatedly to get the perfect shot, it is so impressive to see these kids excel in something they have worked so hard for and I am so happy to be able to provide them with a photo of themselves doing something awesome! I hope you enjoy this football session as much as I do!


New Life, New Love | Family

This cute family recently welcomed this sweet, little guy to the world. You know, there is something special – or lucky – about being the youngest/one of the youngest kids. When you are a new baby and you have older siblings who are old enough to really dote on you, it’s a really amazing relationship. And when you are the fifth or sixth, etc kid with a little bit of a gap in between, your parents have had enough parenting experience that they aren’t newbs anymore, and they’ve had enough of a break between babies/toddlers (and maybe they know you are the last) that they really relish and have fun with the newborn stage. I’m not trying to promote having a gap or whatever, and of course everyone is different and what may work well for some, won’t work for others, but even in my own family I see a difference the way I parented my first kids and the way I parented my later kids and the relationships of the older kids with the younger kids. And having a gap before the last, even my small gap of 4 years, ended up being really nice and having the older kids being older is really nice.

Anyways, this mama is one of the coolest mamas I know. She loves shoes, and is super creative with them. Her shoes for her session were darling, although I’m not showcasing them very well 😉 Next year, I will plan much better for a location that will be more conducive for heels. Her choice of baby clothes so fun as well. I’m only slightly disappointed that Baby Brother didn’t wear his Nirvana shirt… Coolest Mama = Coolest Baby Ever.
