Simple. Beautiful. You.


One of the things I love most about senior photography is having the chance to meet and spend time with so many amazing young people. I think this is where my teacher side comes out a little bit. I love hearing the hopes and dreams young people have about their future, the excitement of senior year, and knowing that a wide open road awaits them. There are also so many young people in our community achieving great things, making a difference, volunteering and helping. That is why I want to give one entire senior session away for free to one such young lady. I know I know, what about the guys? Sorry guys, but this one just hits home. You see, I remember what it was like to be in high school and feel awkward, shy, and not confident. As a senior photographer, I love watching a girls confidence burst wide open in the middle of our session and see natural, raw beauty. I want you girls to know that you are beautiful just as you are, and you are doing some amazing things inside the classroom, on the field, and at home. I want you to simply feel beautiful as you because you are awesome.

So email me and tell me about a young woman that deserves to win a free High School Senior portrait session! The winner will receive a 2-3 hour senior session, digital rights to 30-45 photos, free hair and makeup, and a $50 visa card to get something new for our session. Tell me, in just a few paragraphs, why this teen is so wonderful, so amazing, and so deserving. You can also nominate yourself! Email using the subject title Senior Giveaway by January 7th at midnight. The winner will be announced Saturday January 10th by 12 noon.
