The end of a Senior Model Team season is always so bittersweet. Its a celebration because of graduation (obviously), and the parents are there, and selfies are being snapped and tears are being shed and pictures are being recreated from k5 graduation pictures… its a whole scene, I’ll tell ya! But its sad because it’s […]

When choosing a place for a senior session (especially a group session, which this was), it’s important for me to make sure there are plenty of spots in good lighting that I can work within the space. This session at Burton Brooks Peach Shed just outside of Valdosta, Ga was the perfect spot! They’re famous […]

Its always good to have one session that really brings you out of the norm and makes you get creative with your outfits – Graffiti Bridge is 100% that! The structure itself has a ton of color, a rust-meets-spraypaint color effect and an overall “grunge” feel. I usually encourage my clients to look at going […]

Savannah, Georgia has a plethora of picturesque spots – oak covered lanes, quaint townhouse rows, wrought iron fences around historic mansions, lush parks… and this is just within the Forsyth Park area! When planning a destination group session, I look to get as much diversity as possible without spreading out too far – especially in […]

Senior model team group sessions include places that are local to Valdosta and places that would be more considered “destinations”. While we always get a few group shots, most of the group session images are of the individuals themselves, adding a ton of variety to their ongoing senior portrait gallery. The carnival comes to the […]

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, […]

Photographing senior portraits in NYC is a dream that nudged its way into my thinking a couple of years ago. I knew it would epic, full of incredible images and oh-so-fun, but it also made me nervous. I’d been to NYC before, but it’s been years and never have I taken clients there. It was […]

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, […]

Every year the Senior Model Team goes off to destination shoot locations across the southeast (and beyond!)! Providence Canyon is a total favorite and one of our most adventurous ones on the schedule! Situated pretty much in the middle of nowhere (near Lumpkin, Georgia), this landmark will make your draw drop when you see it […]

Taking the girls to the beach is always the most attended Senior Model Team (SMT) session of the season! When it comes to a destination session, sand, surf and swishy dresses top the list of what’s needed to make it a success. Add in some sun hats, beach waves in their hair and a killer […]
