Natalie's Senior Portraits

Last week, I had the pleasure of capturing some lovely senior portraits of Natalie, who is graduating from high school next month. I loved sharing in the excitement about her upcoming graduation. Such a fun time!

 Isn't she beautiful?

 We let her boyfriend, Zack, in on the fun, too!

I'd been eyeing this yellow wall with the magenta curtains for ages, just waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it in a portrait shoot. This was it! Natalie's red hair and fun chevron dress fit so perfectly with this warm color scheme!

Then again, the green background really brings out her eyes.

By the way, if Natalie looks familiar, it might be because you saw her equally gorgeous older sister's engagement photos on my blog, too! 

Can you tell I had fun with this shoot?

And that I had a hard time choosing just a few favorite shots for this blog post? ;)

Can you really blame me? Look at this beauty!

Interested in your own portrait shoot? Let me know

Engagement Photography: Hannah & Anthony (Pass Christian, Mississippi)

I think I'm officially in love with engagement sessions. I had the pleasure of photographing Hannah and Anthony last weekend in beautiful Pass Christian. I had a pretty good feeling when I spotted this huge wisteria bush in full bloom, and it only got better when this gorgeous couple arrived in their perfectly coordinated blue/aqua ensemble. Did they read my mind? Do they know my love for cool colors? It was almost as if we'd carefully planned a way to perfectly match my logo with this photo. How beautiful are they?! 

We were off to a great start, and the goodness kept going. These two rocked it!  We had tons of fun playing in the dappled light of ancient trees on vacant lots. 

And then we headed to the park, where Hannah and Anthony were unfazed by the need to dodge pogo-stick-hopping boys and the prom-goers who were hogging the gazebo.

We took a little stroll downtown...

...and then headed across the road to the harbor. 

And what better way to conclude an afternoon of celebrating love than with a long walk on the beach?

If you're getting married soon, I'd love to talk with you about creating the perfect engagement photography session for you and your love!
