Zach C. {high school senior}

Zach is a adorable high school senior from Collinsville High School. I don’t know how we get so lucky, but we definitely get to photograph the most amazing seniors! They are always a joy to be around, and they always leave Roger and I asking the same question – how come we didn’t have it that together when we were seniors? Zach is incredibly sweet and intelligent, and his future is extremely bright. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Zach while capturing his senior session! Enjoy a few of our favorites!!

Ciarra S. {high school senior}

We’ve known Ciara for a few years now after we had the opportunity to photograph her back in 2009. So when her mom contacted us about senior photos, I immediately did the math over and over to try to figure out how it could be possible that Ciara could be a senior in high school. Any way you add it up, time goes too quickly. It seems as though becoming a teenager turns into graduating with a blink of an eye. It’s an honor to be chosen to capture this time in a young person’s life. Capturing who they are before they embark on college and then real life. These are the days as adults we look back on with endearment – wishing all those fun times could be felt once again. And it’s easy to remember all the joys of youth just by looking at your high school senior photo. It’s a time you never want to forget, so we are honored to capture it – and honored that one of the people that chose us to capture it was Ciara. Enjoy a handful from her amazing senior session!

Quincy K. {Senior – part 2}

If you think you are having deja vu, you are not. Quincy’s senior session got broken into two parts thanks to our wonderful sweltering summer weather. If you missed the first portion of her session at the fair, that was dumb… go check it out! If you feel excited because you get to see more of Quincy, well I wouldn’t blame you. She’s pretty fierce with her photo taking prowess, and she is just plain fun to be around. I believe that anything Quincy puts her mind to – she’s going to do, so we can’t wait to see where life takes her! Or rather, where she takes life!! Enjoy a few more photos from Quincy’s second session!!

Chloe W. {high school senior}

Chloe is one of the most thoughtful, intelligent, charming, and beautiful girls around. If you won’t take my word for it, you can take the word of the judges who recently crowned her Miss Macoupin County this summer! We had such a fun time photographing and getting to know her at her session. Her smile can light up a room, and the calmness when she isn’t smiling can put you at ease. She was a dream to photograph and a joy to get to know. Please enjoy a few of her incredibly gorgeous senior session!!

Elise H. {high school senior}

“I’m really nervous” she said. We assured her it would be fine and that she’d warm up in no time. And the first pose Elise went into, she nailed. And every pose she nailed. This girl was born to be photographed!! It was a completely fulfilling session that we will never forget. Lots of laughs, lots of bees (we still laugh thinking about Roger hitting your shoe Elise!), and lots of beauty. Elise is so wonderful to be around and in one word she is vibrant. Her parents, her family, and her friends are so fortunate to have her in their lives – and we were fortunate to be chosen to photograph her senior photos! Enjoy a few of our favorites!!
