Brooke D. {Senior Photos}

Brooke is the definition of the girl next door, all American, beauty. She’s as sweet as the day is long, naturally gorgeous, and the girl every mom wishes her son would someday marry. She is just perfect and doesn’t really realize what a knock out she is. And let’s face it – who doesn’t love a midwestern beauty that proudly loves mashed potatoes.
She was very excited about senior photos as were we, never questioning any idea we came up with. And even though it was SO hot the day we did photos, she kept a smile on her face and went with it. Enjoy Brooke’s senior session!

Maggie M. {High School Seniors}

I remember High School pretty vividly. I remember hair scrunchies to match every outfit and tight rolling my pants. And hairspray. Lots and lots of hairspray. Roger probably remembers his mullet. (True story.)
I don’t however remember anyone looking like Maggie in high school. Because let’s face it… she looks like a movie star or a model. I don’t remember acting like Maggie either. Mature, smart, and well composed – Maggie is not your typical everyday teen. When she graduates next year I can only imagine what’s ahead in her future. Enjoy Maggie’s senior photos!

Elizabeth K. {Senior Photos}

Elizabeth is getting ready for her senior year of high school at Carlinville H.S. She’s very much into dance, and is on the dance team and 4-H.

Those are some of the details, but what you should also know is that Elizabeth is kind, warm, fun, and BEAUTIFUL and truly a joy to get to know.

COCO BONGO {Professional Spotlight}

As you approach the front door you’ll probably feel the bass from the music and hear the sounds of laughter, “My Lipgloss is Poppin”, and the spray from an aerosol can of hairspray. It’s like stepping into a fun, care-free world of vibrant colors, pumping music, and some glitter to boot. Every single person wears a smile, and upbeat describes more than just the music tempo. It’s the tempo of their business, so you best get on the party bus and not be left behind – because CoCo Bongo will rock your hair – AND your world!
