I had some of the best high school seniors to photograph last summer. I think what I enjoyed the most were how each of them wanted pictures to show their uniqueness. Their personality. What they’re about! For Garrett, he really wanted a simple backdrop for pictures, yet showing his appreciation for where he has grown […]

One of my favorite places to go for senior portrait sessions, besides Colorado!, is Mackinac Island! I love this place for its gorgeous flowers and landscaping, smells of fudge, sounds of horse’s hooves clip-clopping down the street and all of the feels of being transported back in time. Mackinac Island is filled with charm and […]
