girls only

A while back I mentioned that I was going to be taking senior pictures for some of the girls from our local high school.

I ended up photographing a total of eleven girls, and it was truly one of the most enjoyable things I've ever done.

Almost all of the girls go to school with my youngest, so I've watched some of them grow up since their grade school days.

It's so hard to believe that they are all going to be heading out into the big world in just a matter of months!


I happened to know that D'Aarion had a pretty pink prom dress in her closet, so a few days after we did her senior pictures, I texted her to see if she wanted to help me make my balloon dream come true.

We found the perfect field, and fought off a bit of frostbite, but I love, love, love how the pictures turned out.












I've been wanting to do a dreamy summer afternoon shoot on my porch for quite a while, and Rhayn was nice enough to help me make it happen!










This is truly an amazing group of young ladies. They are beautiful inside and out, and I wish them the very best that life has to offer.

The world is waiting, girls!

I can't wait to see what your futures hold!

  7. What, are all the girls in Montana drop-dead gorgeous? How has your son survived learning amid all that beauty? I have never in my life ...

    You are the photographer extraordinaire. Can you make me look as good as those senior girls? :)

  15. Absolutely wonderful. My daughter is a junior and I can't wait to have her senior pics done. We are sort of new to the south (8 months, via CA) and I just love all the photo opp. places that we have here, so many more than in California. She wants to be a country girl lol so these photos have inspired me :)

  16. Ok, I'm totally serious about this…my daughter is a senior next year. I need to find out how far apart we live from each other and plan a major road trip to your home this summer. I would love it if you would take Maddie's pictures. I live in southern Michigan, how do I make this happen? Pretty please.
