Meet my Senior Street Squad!

Every summer I find a few Juniors, offer a discounted Senior session & hope they will tell everyone about my business. Every year I get a few bites & a few referrals.

This year is different. This year I am creating an experience. For me, for my business, & for these girls. This year they are going to become a part of my business & I can tell already, they are going to become like family.  We are going to make their Senior pictures one of the most memorable experiences of becoming a Senior! This year, these girls ARE the faces of my brand!

Meet my Exclusive 2017 Senior Street Squad! Lindsay, Maddie, Laken, Jenna, Menly, Makenzie, Haley & Jordyn!


See the Subscribe button up there to the right —>  Definitely sign up for that, because over the next couple of weeks you’ll be getting to know these girls a little better! I will be doing blog posts introducing each of them individually, sharing a few more images of them, & sharing some inside info I snagged on each of them. You know… girl talk! 😉

Yesterday we spent the day hanging out at The Suites of Divine Bliss. Thank you, thank you Amy White for sharing your beautiful space!!! We listened to ridiculous music, ate yummy donuts from Donald’s Donuts (of course), later snacked on pita & homemade hummus, (thank you Mom), & took these gorgeous photos!


Every photographer knows that normal day to day make up isn’t enough for camera. Enter Brittany Anne Make Up Artistry. She is CRAZY good at this! Seriously. Click on her link if you need someone for a special event… prom, a wedding, etc. She worked non stop ALL day, she’s super sweet & did not judge us for our ridiculous antics lol. At least not that we know of 😉

Also. See their cool shirts? Dirty White Tees custom made those for us. He will definitely be my go to for future business! Thank you Jesh Folden!

And lastly, if you are a Senior Photographer looking to amp up your Rep program, Galicia at The Twelfth Year is AMAZING! And by amazing, I mean, she sort of (really) changed my life.
