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. 

Johnny Stiles, riding in Style

John brought the coolest prop...just a 2017 Corvette! I mean, what a beautiful car! I'm not much of a car enthusiast myself, but even I knew it was pretty awesome. He also brought his own pride and joy, the jeep, which was a lot of fun too. He's spent a lot of time working on his red jeep and has learned a lot from those hours well spent. That's what these years are all about. Heck, that's what life is all about.

Never stop learning! 

I follow this with my own life and more specifically, my photography business. I never want to stop learning new things and improving skills. I've never believed the saying "practice makes perfect" because perfection is overrated. Perfection would make us stop working, stop trying harder. Practice makes better. I know...not as catchy, but the point is, keep learning. Past high school, past college, past retirement, learning keeps you young after all! 

Congratulations to John on his high school graduation coming up in 2018! This is such a huge milestone and I know his mom Jenna is very proud. It was wonderful meeting them both!   

Tristen's Sneak Peek {senior}

I met up with Tristen for his senior photo shoot at an alley in downtown Clinton. I love when clients want something a little more "urban" because it's a change of pace from the typical scenery. Don't get me wrong, I love pretty parks too, but it's fun to switch it up! And speaking of switching it up, we also went to Clinton High and did the second half of his shoot next to/in the pool since Tristen is a swimmer. This was my first time taking pool-shots and it was so much fun! Huge thanks to his coach for letting us take over a few lanes to get some awesome shots.

Here is a little sneak peek of the photos while I finish up the rest.
