Mikaela Rhodes | April 2016

If you know anything about Mikaela, she puts 200% into everything she does - so thankfully we found time to take her graduation pictures outside of all her classwork and activities she participated in during the school year! Her session was a breeze though! Not only is she a gorgeous woman, but I've known this girl since 5th grade, so we easily connected on our shoot...let's just say me being stupid was an easy laugh.

But it's so hard to believe we've known each other for 10 years now...from our 5th grade battery science project, to both joining band, then being college freshman roomies, to becoming lifelong sisters of Tau Beta Sigma...we've been through so much together - it's crazy!!! I'm so proud of everything you've accomplished over these 10 years and I'm super excited to see what awesome adventures you will go on with your degree! We definitely need to go on Starbucks dates every time you come back into town. (:

Enjoy.

Ashlyn Kubacak | April 2016

This gorgeous girl inspires me so much! Not only is she beautiful, but she's incredibly smart and passionate about everything she does! Whatever she puts her mind to she accomplishes it with flying colors!! I cannot say enough good things about my friend, Ashlyn, not to mention our session was amazing (every picture was perfect - seriously).

Ashlyn, I wish you the best of luck as you enter a new part of your life. I know you'll rock social work grad school as you have with everything else. Your beauty is only a glimmer of what lies beneath. You have enough passion to conquer the world - and help people along the way. (:

Enjoy.

Sara Remoy | February 2016

The beautiful and talented bassoonist, Sara, and I had a wonderful evening with her photoshoot in February. Sara asked me to take some images for her senior bassoon recital poster as well as senior pictures and I am completely thrilled with how they turned out! As an flutist, I've never had to handle a bassoon, so when it came time for posing with one it definitely kept me on my toes - and I'm so happy with the results! 

If you had to know one thing about Sara it would be her joyous personality! Since I've known Sara her spirit and passion for anything she does is inspiring - not to mention her dancing feet! I think her beautiful personality was captured perfectly below, especially with the statues. (; Sara, I wish you the best of luck with your student teaching next fall - I just know the kids will love your infectious charm!

Enjoy.

Andrew Frank | February 2016

When Andrew asked me for some professional business portraits for his magician business I couldn't have been happier, because it got me out of my comfort zone - I could definitely feel my creative juices flowing during this session! It was so much fun doing something a little different while getting the chance to use my new lens, a Canon 85mm 1.8. The photos turned out beautifully - so creamy! 

Now I've witnessed a few of Andrew's magic tricks and let me say he's very talented! From his rope tricks, coin vanishings, card switches, and capturing personality you can certainly tell Andrew is passionate about his magic. I love all the personal touches he has, especially with his awesome cuff links (pictured below - so cool!!), he's got everything going for him. I wish you the best of luck with your magician business, Andrew! I know you'll be successful!

Enjoy.

 

Kevin + Kelsey | December 2015

This session was a complete surprise for the bride and myself! That day I got a suspicious text from Kevin seeing if I was available, but I was volunteering and he said he found someone else before I could timely respond. Soon after this occurred I got a phone call from a friend asking me if I knew what was going on. She shocked me with the news that Kelsey, one of my closest friends since freshman year of college, was getting proposed to! When I discovered the news I knew that I had to be there to take pictures. I rushed out of where I was volunteering and told them I'd be back later, I had a proposal to get to!

After racing back to my house, grabbing my camera, almost hitting my roommate with the door, and peeling out the driveway I arrived at the proposal location with plenty of time. After giving Kevin a piece of my mind for not giving me sooner notice I couldn't have been happier to be there to document their special event! When Kelsey walked up it was perfect. Kevin had their song playing and her favorite flowers in hand. It was a beautiful site to witness. After, we did a mini engagement session - they're just too cute!!

Kevin and Kelsey, I wish you two the best of luck with wedding planning and your future together. I hope that we will remain close as the years grow longer. I love you two so so much!

Enjoy.
