MONTHLY AMAZON PRODUCT FAVS – JANUARY 2021 I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years and it’s just time to launch into it! Here’s a curated list of all the things I’ve been loving lately! From household items, to beauty favs and even maybe a few snacky snacks, I’m hoping to create some […]

I love getting to get my senior rep team together to do fun stylized sessions! One that I’ve been hoping we could do this year was get snow pictures taken with our senior girls! Thankfully, Nebraska weather pulled through and gave us some snow that looked beautiful and stuck around long enough for us to get together. The girls were fantastic with pulling together outfits that matched perfectly. I am so happy that I have something fun for local senior girls to do together and it’s always exciting watching them interact with each other. This session my favorite part was watching them toss snowballs around and giggle as we all tried not to slip on the ice!

Class of 2020, your senior year is officially halfway over. This year has been less than traditional, but don’t let that rob you of all your high school memories! I promise we can maximize those “lasts” and soak up all the good things. Take your best friends out for a cruise night, play those senior pranks on your parents, stay up all night doing movie marathons with your team mates. You seriously have less than TWENTY weekends left until you graduate. Do all the things. Make all the memories.

2021 will be my 8th year as a full time photographer, which means I have spent A LOT of time behind a camera through the years. My absolute favorite part of having my business for so long is getting to watch families grow and evolve. So, let’s celebrate 2020 and look into 2021! We’ve got a ton of fun things to highlight! Take a peek below!

Senior Portraits Hair & Make-Up Tips

View Post

I highly recommend all of my senior clients invest professional hair and makeup. If it is in your budget, hiring a professional for your hair and makeup will make a drastic difference in the quality of your photos and senior portrait experience. You are already making a large investment in your senior portrait experience, so why not make it the best it can be?! So, why exactly is it so important?

There are not many things in this world today that everyone will understand, such as language, dialect, and culture, with that being said there is one thing that that doesn’t matter what language you speak, or where you are from, one thing that unites us and one thing that is universal, that one thing is photography. Photography is one of the greatest forms of art in today’s world, it not only brings us together, but it tells a story, and allows us to see the world through someone else’s perspective.
