It’s PROM!! Well it was on Friday night for Tom and Renae, talk about looking a-maz-ing! I know I have said this before about them in last year’s Junior and Senior prom posts, but with it being their last and final prom, it was a different kind of feeling. Yes, I just said last and final prom, Tom and Renae are a year apart in school so this was their fourth high school prom. I thought going to my two proms was overwhelming, but Renae and Tom made all of their glamorous nights look so easy.
Tom looked handsome in his all black suit with a white jacket. He also borrowed a friends car so he could drive Renae around in style. Renae’s ivory lace and blush Jovani dress was gorgeous and showed off her tan beautifully. They danced and twirled under the lovely willows and whispered secrets on the bridge.
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!

OMG! I can’t believe that Life has been TLM Productions’ blog for two years! I feel like I just started bloggingyesterday about my amazing clients and sharing some tips. I love taking care of Life, because everything with TLM is like taking care of a child. After all they say starting a business is like raising a child, while I don’t have any kids of my own yet, I do have a few furry babies. They are my world and sometimes drive me crazy with their games and fighting.
TLM and Life are my babies and watching them grow has been amazing! To help me celebrate, all of TLM and Life’s moments the past year, my furry babies helped me with celebrate my other babies this year. We went to our local park to play and celebrate Life.
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.
Senior year is an exciting time in anyone’s high school career. What were the things you look forward to the most in high school? The Friday night football games, hanging out with your friends on the weekends, the senior trip, prom, and above all graduation day! That is exactly what Renae is doing this year; along with looking stunning in her senior portraits. Renae’s maroon sweater and cream lace skirt stood out against the orange, brown, and green leaves. Fall was a great time to take her pictures, the colors of the leaves made for a beautiful and colorful background.
The old Slim’s Ranch gave us the hiking trails with the wooded feel, while open field showed us the meadow and openness that Renae loves; all with the colorful leaves of fall.
Renae is an honor student, volunteer, and the captain of the soccer team.
