Collin + Brady | A twin brothers' senior session at Van Der Veer park in Davenport, Iowa

Collin and Brady started their senior year at Bettendorf High School the day before their senior pictures were taken. They’re both pretty excited about finishing high school and starting a new chapter! Collin plans to continue singing (he has an amazing voice!) in college while he works on his major. In fact, he’s getting an early start at it because of plans to graduate early next January. If only I had been that ambitious! Brady also has big plans to head off to college after graduating with his friends next Spring. I look forward to seeing what they choose to do in this life. I may be a little bias, but I think they are both very talented, funny, smart and I mean, just look at how handsome they are! I have no doubt they will both do great things!

Have a fantastic senior year Collin and Brady and the rest of the Class of 2020!

Jared's Senior Portraits

I had an awesome time taking Jared's senior pictures. I love getting a variety of looks for a senior shoot. We went to riverfront, an alleyway and then over to Eagle Point park for a nice, natural setting. For each location, Jared had an outfit to change into and also didn't mind showing some skin. He even got a chance to show off his favorite sport for a few shots. It all made for a great finished gallery! Here are just a few of my favorites. 

Emily's Sneak Peek

It's always exciting to shoot at new places, so a big thanks to Emily for doing all the scouting work for me and finding a couple cool spots in her own neighborhood to use for her senior pictures! It was fun walking down the street she grew up on and hearing her neighbors wave and ask if she was taking senior pictures.  I could see they were excited for her big milestone and also wondering where the time has gone. The older I get the more I notice how quickly the clock ticks. That's why I love what I do so much! It's always a privilege to capture the important moment's in a person's life and give them something tangible to hang onto for years to come. Something to help those memories surface time and again as the years go by.  

It was so nice to meet Emily! She is a bright young lady who attends Clinton High School in Clinton, Iowa. She participates in A'Capella choir, dance, and is the secretary of the National Honor Society. Her plan for the future is to major in architecture at Iowa State. We had a nice time exploring the area and took pictures at a prairie, a cool garage, and even took a few in her own yard. It was Emily's first experience doing a photo shoot and she did a great job! It was important to her to stay true to herself and she would recommend anyone getting pictures done to try relaxing and just be who you are. 

Here is a sneak peek from her session!
