I met Destinee of Vinspire during a February Tuesday’s Together meetup, we got to talking and thought we wanted to work together. Destinee teamed up with me to create a fun vintage inspired senior shoot. We took Destinee’s knowledge of vintage and matched up great makeup and hair styles with the girls wardrobe. Lauren and Maddy joined us as models and looked amazing!
Everyone came over and Destinee got to work, while I started taking on behind the scene pictures.
When all was said and done, Lauren and Maddie looked great and we headed into Philadelphia to fit our vintage theme.
Getting to work with high school seniors and learning about their passions is amazing. Lately, I have been working with a lot of athletes, many of them like Tom play more than one sport. Tom has been a soccer player since he was allowed to start playing, and when he got to high school he started wrestling. I meet Tom a few years ago and have worked with him the past two fall seasons for his soccer action collages.
This time around I got to go out on a shoot with Tom to his high school’s bleachers, so many football games watched from those seats. Not to mention all of the games that he got to play on that field, with the fans in the stands cheering Tom and his team on. While Tom is a star on the soccer field he is also a champion wrestler, this year Tom took #1 in his district for wrestling.
Good luck next year Tom in the beginning of your college journey and PA career.
Maddy and I met last year through Renae, and worked together this past fall on her soccer collage with her brother. I was so excited to get to work with Maddy again and this time not from the sidelines of a soccer field. During last week’s snow storm, Maddy and I headed out into the snow squalls for some fun snowy junior year portraits. We choose a local park in Gloucester Township, that has a beautiful lake and was right down the street from both of us! Tuesday’s wintery mix laid the perfect white snow on the ground, but the rain made it icy and a little slippery. As we slid our way out to the lake, we started laughing that there were geese walking around on the ice doing better than we were.
Maddy nailed her winter, snow outfit!

As promised, Lauren’s second part of her senior session is here and I am so excited to share! We shot on a beautiful fall day at Washington Township Lake Park, the lake and colorful fall leaves made an amazing colorful backdrop for her faded green sweater.
I have worked with Lauren a few times now, she is on her high school’s varsity soccer team and I have done action shots of her for two years. This year I was so excited when her mom told me they were ready to get the action collage this year and they wanted senior portraits!
We met and talked about what Lauren wanted for her pictures; she wanted a colorful fall setting, but liked the main street in Haddonfield. I was almost jumping up and down when she said she wanted to shoot in Haddonfield. I love driving up and down Kings Highway looking at all the cute little shops.
Lauren and I meet at the Starbucks and headed down to the “town center square.” The gazebo shooting towards Kings Highway made for the perfect small town vibe we were going for.
Lauren squealed with joy and excitement when I showed her a few shots.
Stay tuned for the second part of Lauren’s senior portraits.
Kelsey was so much fun to work with. It may have been almost 90 degrees, but Kelsey’s down to earth country style and love for our country and sports made for a wonderful session. The lake at Washington Township lake park was the perfect backdrop for her southern style.
Kelsey’s sweet smile shined through the session, and her smile when she saw the pictures got even bigger. I couldn’t wait to continue shooting with her after an amazing time in front of the lake, so we moved over to the athletic fields. Kelsey will be playing lacrosse in college, and we wanted to capture the amazing athlete within her.
Everyone is excited to graduate, no matter if it is from high school or college. The cap and gown do have a meaning and you can learn more about it, here. It is now a long standing tradition, but that does not mean the pictures have to be in front of a backdrop in a studio. Renae wanted pictures that would show her personality and love of life!
It was a beautiful day for our shoot, the sun was shining bright, and Renae looked amazing in her strapless light pink dress and adorable white bow wedges.
While Renae is still here on the ground, she will be flying off to college in August to play soccer at Armstrong University in Georgia.
Congratulations Renae on your high school graduation and good luck next year in college.
