Senior - Alyssa Blaha


Goooo big green! Yes, that's my favorite team to cheer for, once a Wolverine, always a Wolverine! So when I had a call asking to photograph a fellow team green girl I was all about that session!


Something extra special I offered all my seniors this year is the opportunity to have TWO dates for pictures. It's more of an insurance plan for me to make sure everything turns out amazing but it's also a way for the seniors to kind of get comfortable their first session and then really shine for their second session. I really enjoyed getting to know Alyssa, her sister and her mom on that cloudy afternoon.

One thing I love about my WC seniors is to ask them how the school has changed. I like learning how our school system has improved and what lucky privileges they get compared to the silly rules they had when I was in school. (The no hoody's rule still bothers me to this day!) Alyssa informed me of some neat things they've come up with, I mean, getting your phones in class is just downright sweet right?!

It was so nice getting to know you, and I love hearing about how track stars work it! I'm totally not a shot or disc thrower, running was my thing. So thanks for being patient with me and explaining how it all worked. I love learning these things I promise!

I guess learning is all about trying new things. I loved trying some new techniques on sunsets but I hated how they turned up. That's exactly why I offered all of my seniors a second shoot, to give me time to really practice and to give them an opportunity to find other poses or ideas that they like. Lesson learned, always shoot what you're comfortable with and then try shooting something new. It gives you some things to work with if you botch your experiments!

Newborn - Brock Thomas

- Brock Newborn Session -

All of my friends know I love baby time. I just love cuddling with freshly new to the world little ones. It's both a good and bad curse that I have... 


When I was approached about giving James and Amanda a gift certificate for maternity and newborn pictures I was excited! I'd be able to catch up with two people I don't get to see too often and I'd also get to meet their newest family member.

When they came over and we started getting Brock prepped for his session it was exciting to hear that labor and delivery went smooth for them. Little Mister Brock arrived without complications and daddy and mommy were more than excited to welcome him weighing in just at 9 lbs. 7 oz. and was 21.5 inches long. Such a precious bundle who did amazing for his newborn pictures! I kid you not, that little guy slept through it all, waking up once towards the end for a snack from momma before knocking back out. It was amazing just how perfect he was the entire time!

This session was one of my first newborn sessions all on my own and I was overly nervous about it. I knew I've helped with several newborn sessions but it was all me in charge and taking the shots. I'd say we did great with them though. I've learned to get your goodies prepped before the session, another thing I learned was a lot about lighting. Always make sure you have his head facing towards your light source. Saves a lot of time post processing if you do it right to begin with ;)
