Senior Portrait Session – Bayou Sauvage

Senior Portrait Session – Bayou Sauvage. As an avid outdoorsman, we decided on a wandering wooden pathway in Bayou Sauvage for Dougie’s senior pictures.  Like many young men, he was initially a reluctant participant for his senior portrait session. It didn’t take long before we had him laughing and relaxed and then he turned on the charm. One of his passions is hunting and he brought along a shotgun. Since guns and wildlife refuge’s don’t mix well, we moved on to a different location for a few more images. We figured it was best to let the game wardens and sheriff’s’ deputies focus their efforts elsewhere. I must admit, posing him with graduation garb and a shotgun made for some interesting images.  Best wishes to Dougie for a future filled with success and joy.

Allison Shines in the Big Easy – Senior Portraits

While we always love spending time working and playing in New Orleans, Saturday’s senior portrait session had special meaning for Sylvia and I.  Our youngest daughter is nearing graduation and it was time for her senior portraits. She chose the French Quarter and City Park as the shoot locations.  In typical Allison style, we didn’t know where we were going until the night before.  That being said, it was a great choice. The weather was fantastic and of course when the camera was raised, she turned on her charm. City streets, stately oaks, calm ponds, and Allison…the results, of course, were stunning. How could they not be with that glowing smile and those intense eyes. We had so much fun with this shoot.  For a change, we weren’t just capturing “moments that matter”, we were living them too!  Graduation is around the corner, and another right of passage will come and go. For Allison, it’s onward and upward with a future filled with hopes and dreams. For us, we have a few more memories of joy filled moments as we watch our baby girl blossom into a fine young woman.

Hannah Dazzles at Audobon

We recently had the privilege of spending a wonderful afternoon with Hannah.  When she told us she wanted to take her senior portraits at the Audubon Zoo, we were thrilled.  What an inspiring setting for senior portraits. From the moment she arrived, she was absolutely glowing. We had a blast laughing and strolling through the zoo while finding just the right locations to accent her outfits. Her energy and beauty was unmistakable and are evident in the images that we captured. Best wishes to Hannah, and congratulations on being a member of the Fisher High School Graduating Class of 2017.  Click below to view a few of our favorites from her session.
