A few years ago, we photographed Brittany’s sister for her senior portraits and ever since her mom has been waiting to do a matching session for Brittany. No pressure, right?
Sometimes when you put the camera to your eye you see your subject is something truly special. Brittany is definitely one of those subjects. Her features are obviously pretty when you first meet her, but when you put her in front of a camera she becomes absolutely exquisite. I swear I could photograph her all day! To make it even better, she is the most down to Earth teenager– an absolute sweetheart!
Olyn and I competed in the Tallahassee Professional Photographers Guild monthly print competition last night and we are so excited to share the results! Olyn won for the category “Portrait of a Group”. I entered the maximum number of prints in the competition and I won for all of them! I won for: Commercial, Portrait of Two, Portrait of a Man and Portrait of a Woman. Most excitingly, I won the overall Print of the Month of the Month with my Portrait of a Woman.
So, here are the winning images!

Probably my favorite thing about a Senior Photo Session is being able to include the things that the senior is passionate about. For Tyler, its soccer and the outdoors, so we headed over to Tallahassee’s Forest Meadows soccer complex for his senior photo session. Every senior guy grumbles and drags their feet about their senior photo session, but after a few minutes I think Tyler realized that our session would be WAY different than the school senior photos! I would even venture to say he had fun– even if he won’t admit it!
Most senior girls would wrinkle up their noses if I asked them to wander into a bunch of weeds on the side of the road, but Sara Grayce just grabbed her boots and jumped in! She was so awesome for her senior photo session this week and went along with all our bizarre ideas! She was the perfect senior portrait client– I could photograph her everyday!
