EmElise | Class of 2014

EmElise is graduating high school this year. She is smart. and funny. and truly one of the most genuine and good-hearted people i have had the fortune to cross paths with.  She is the person that smiles at you and you can’t help but be happy right along with her. She laughs and you want to jump up and down. She loves. and she loves big. and i am sooo soooo sooooo honored to have had the afternoon with her to photograph her senior year.

Em… you are truly beautiful.we had SO much fun trying to figure out how to work with this glitter. i LOVE how dreamy these photos look.for the last portion of our session, EmElise was kind enough to let me bring a styled shoot that i had been wanting to do. I have always wanted to photograph a playful and youthful session with roller skates, pigtails and bubble gum. Em was so easy to work with on this.  This was, perhaps, my favorite part of our session.EmElise – you, my dear… you make me so happy.  i will probably go the rest of my life and not be able to meet someone that speaks to my core the way you do.  you are a rainbow.  when i think about the last few years of watching you on stage and in this life, i have all these memories of your laughter and smile and bubbly spirit. you are so special and such a beacon of light to others. what am i going to do without you? without your smile? without hearing you laugh your youthful giggle?  i am so excited to hear about everything life brings to you. you have such an energetic soul and i am thrilled to be on the sidelines cheering you on as you begin to experience all that life has to offer! every time you walk into a room, or send me a message, i am instantly happy. when you smile, life just sorta fades away and i believe in everything good. you … you just are unparalleled. and i will miss you deeply while you’re away at college. thank you again and again for trusting me with your memories and for spending an afternoon laughing with me. i will forever… FOREVER… hold that close to my heart.

Prom 2014 | Amarillo Prom Photographer

this time last week, i was getting ready to photograph a group of almost 60 prom-goers. I knew i had set a standard with last year’s photos.  But i didn’t expect to be photographing so many beautiful people in one afternoon. It definitely made for an interesting afternoon.  But when it was all said and done… i walked away completely pleased and excited to have met and worked with so many amazing young adults.

 i gathered them all in a loft space downtown and kept things sweet and simple. Here are just a few of the highlights.

 For all “adults” reading this blog – join me in a collective sigh of bitterness that we were not as fabulous at this age….i CANNOT express what a joy and honor it is to work with youth. it’s invigorating. and makes me see much good in life and in this world.  i cannot imagine a more fulfilling career path than to be able to photograph such happy moments and memories. thank you so much for the honor of witnessing your happiness, friendships, personalities, and laughter.  I am so thankful to have spent an afternoon with each and every one of you.
