Ok so I am just a bit behind blogging this session…well, lets be honest, I’m A LOT behind on blogging this session!  I photographed Brandi’s senior session just a month before I had my daughter (at 8 wonderfully HUGE months preggo), but let me tell you, it was totally worth it!  Brandi is a super fun girl with an awesome quirky style that I just love, and she has one of the sweetest little pooches I’ve ever met!

I absolutely LOVE shooting seniors – send me an email at to book your session!

Today’s Fashion Friday post is for you High School Senior girls, and specifically how little details can add to your shoot.

Check out this post from Seniorologie, where they discuss the latest trends in nail art and colors for the season Comment and let me know what you think of their tips!

If you’re anything like me, you get bored of the same old picture styles and poses. That’s why today’s guest post is all about adding interest to your photos with props. Props can add a bit of the unexpected to your photos and help tell your story. Clarissa from Coco Sailore (an ADORABLE Etsy store offering handmade curios such as vibrant mason jars, cheerful pennant banners, colorful garlands, and fun DIY kits) provides insight on how to personalize your photo session!

  • My dad has a picture of six of his younger siblings ranging from high school to elementary school age, each holding an item that was important in their lives at that time: a flute, basketball, trophy, etc. Growing up I loved looking at that picture because it revealed a peek into the younger lives of my aunts and uncles. Props in family photos don’t have to be meaningless; they’re a great way to visually preserve a special time in your family’s life. Are you an artistic family? Stage a whimsical photo shoot! Does your family like to have a good time? Throw in a festive pennant banner! Every family has something that makes them feel united. Show it!
    My most adored family photos from my blossoming marriage were taken in an old triplex apartment that we used to live in. The first time my husband introduced me to our post-honeymoon residence, I nearly died. It was putrid green, run down, and the bathroom was literally a water closet. But after three years I was in love with the place, with its charm and little nuances. Before we moved out of state we decided to take family photos around our beloved apartment doing some of our favorite things: reading books, playing Scrabble, baking homemade bread, and dancing to our vintage records. Those photos mean the most to me because our props were a part of what made our first few years of marriage special.
    Photographs can potentially capture the best and the worst in family sessions. To the chagrin of my parents, my Minnie Mouse teddy will always be in our formal extended family photos. (But now it’s cute to look at the pouty-face 3 year-old whose doll was being threatened to have taken away if she didn’t cooperate with the photographer. I mean, it is cute…right, Mom?) As you consider the props you want in your photos remember that you and your family’s style changes, obsessions may fade, and there’s no looking back. Embrace this wonderful moment in your family’s lives.

    Check out Coco Sailore and browse Clarissa’s beautiful hand made pennants and garland – all of which can double as props for your shoot, as well as brighten up your home 🙂

Mel contacted me about portraits for her upcoming campaign for president of the Business Honors Society at her college. I was super excited because she explained how she wanted to incorporate the club colors with balloons (because everyone loves balloons, right?)  I think these portraits show off her fun and bubbly personality, and who wouldn’t vote for that?    😉

Senior portraits are some of my favorite types of sessions to shoot – its such an exciting time as most seniors get ready to head off to college and start a new endeavor.  Spring is a popular time for senior portraits, so if you haven’t yet, be sure to book your session by emailing me at 🙂

Meet Daniel. He is a senior at Glendora High School and was super fun to work with!  We chose both an urban setting and park setting for his session, and I think both suit him well 🙂
Here are some of my favorites from his session:

Senior season is upon us!  I had a blast shooting Mariah’s senior pictures while I was in Colorado. We started out in her own backyard and then moved to the colorful penny arcade in Manitou Springs.

Mariah is a beautiful girl inside and out, and I am so excited to see what her future holds 🙂

Sessions like this are my absolute fave. I LOVE senior sessions, especially when I get to work with one as natural and fun as Marina- the girl totally knew how to work the camera! Her sister even joined in on a few 😉
 How gorgeous are these sisters, seriously?!
