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.
My favorite part of a shoot is capturing that moment that will last in your memory forever, even if it is the smallest thing. Taking pictures during a sports game is thrilling; the fast pace, try to keep up with me feeling, is crazy and can be stressful, but I live for it. The quick on your toes thinking proves to myself that this is where I want to be and can’t live without it. The individual images tells one kind of story, but a collection of them tells a larger story. I am so happy that these college and high school students wanted to tell a larger story and chose me to be a part of it. What story do you like telling from the days that you played? Or if you’re still playing, what memory is your favorite team memory or game time story? Maybe that time that the other team was 45 minutes late to the game so your team made a life size pink ribbon for the “Support Breast Cancer” game, your first goal on the varsity women’s soccer team,
or the first time you got to pitch for your college’s club baseball team,
maybe it was the first time you stood up on your surfboard.
We all have stories, tell them in a different way, through your sports collage.
It’s time to meet little Gracie, an energetic 1 year old who loves mom, dad, her dog Abby, playing in water, Sesame Street, and yellow flowers. Gracie’s parents Adam and Denise brought her down to the Philadelphia area to visit her Uncle Matt and Sesame Place. During her time here, Gracie’s parents took a trip to Longwood Gardens and invited me to be apart of their experience. The yellow marigolds were Gracie’s favorite flowers by far, matching them perfectly with her yellow dress with little birds. Smelling the flowers and crawling and walking she never stopped moving for long and it was a true joy to watch her discover a new world.
Gracie also got to play in the Children’s Garden, which is sized to her nicely. Whether it was a fountain, a rain display, or a Chinese dragon painting water feature she loved splashing, painting and catching the water.
Seeing the world through Gracie’s eyes showed me again and again how magical the world truly is. I did a special picture just for her so that she will get to see the magic for years to come.
I look forward to seeing this cutie pie again along with her great parents.
