This science major kicked off her Graduation Month with a fun cap and gown session!  She brought some pretty fun props to work with — beakers, bubbly, confetti, lab coat… I loved the ideas she had and the joyful vibe she brought to the session!  The front lawn was pretty crowded when we got there, […]

This student athlete + VSU Grad is such a stunner.  She’s a beast on the field, competition stage and classroom, with a heart of gold and a spirit of kindness.  Presley was one of my art + middle school students when I taught, and she was on one of my first Senior Model Teams.  So […]

The Last Hoorah… Cap + Gown Group sessions with my SMT are always so bittersweet!  It’s SUCH an emotional time when the parents see their seniors in their graduation gear for the first time… the buzz of excitement is tangible with the seniors as well!  Their choice of black dress is such a personality decision […]

Not so many years ago, sweet Melanie was in front of my camera as a high school senior, and now she has walked across that stage as a college grad!  This kindhearted grad has an easy laugh and an open heart for her future students!  She brought a long so many fun props for her […]

When I scheduled this session back in May of 2019, there was no way I could have known what we would be on the brink of during this group shoot.  It took place the weekend before quarantine, social distancing and school closures.  There were rumors and whispers and worries about what the rest of their […]

Of all the Senior Model Team group sessions, the Cap and Gown sessions are always my favorite!  Why?  Because there is a buzz of excitement… putting on the cap and gown makes the end so near, and new beginnings so exciting and within reach!  It always makes me a little bit emotional because I’ve been […]

Sometimes I get an idea in my head and I just cannot get it out! I run past this house several times a month, and each time I’ve thought about how great it would be to do a Christmas session in front of it. The pink of the house is not a normal Christmas color, […]

I’ve had this sheet ghost creative shoot in my head for about a year! But finding the time + energy to make a creative shoot happen can be sort of daunting. I had another group session get rescheduled and saw my opening — opened up the model call and got some really fun girls with […]

Each year, Providence Canyon is the highlight of the season! Its incredibly “fall” looking and such a different environment all together than what is normal for “South Georgia”. Choosing this session always allows my SMT members to really get outside their comfort zone and jump right in to the canyon vibe! Providence Canyon is also […]

Every year, I challenge myself to decide on locations for my seniors that are outside the box + adventurous. I’ve driven through and vacationed near Atlantic Beach for over half my life and finally decided it was time to bring my SMT girls there! We. Had. A. Blast. The murals, the little flowers, the architecture, […]
