the senior model photoshoot is one of my most favorite days of the year!  after weeks of dreaming, planning, pinning, prop making and shopping it is so rewarding to see my creative vision come to life.  the senior model sessions would never work without the amazing team that i have and the super seniors that i select each year.  a huge thank you to carla white, kallos salon, sarah broyhill, ann loftis, melea and cliff schneider!

this year’s woodland wonderland senior model shoot was one for the books!  the girls, the wardrobe and the styling were on point, but mother nature threw us a curve ball.  just as the last few girls were finishing up with hair and make-up the bottom fell out of the sky.  it poured and there was no end in sight until after dark.  as a natural light photographer you have to adapt or die!  although some of my plans for locations and lighting did not work out i am so happy with the imagery that we were able to create at this senior model shoot.  my seniors did not let the pouring rain dampen their mood.  we embraced the monsoons and danced in the rain!

i always love my assignments for our state magazine because i meet the greatest people and get to discover so many new favorite spots in north carolina.  i got to visit four saints brewery in asheboro to photograph elizabeth hudson, the editor, and her wonderful mom for the drink local insert in the april issue. i also had a super-fun shoot at joymongers brewing company in greensboro.  it was especially fun because it combined two of my favorite things….dogs and delicious beer!

here is me with one of my favorite dog models, jedi, my great pyrenees.
