Makayla is a senior at Mount Paran Christian School in Marietta, Georgia. She is also an accomplished dancer and competes with Dance Tech and Talent and participates in many school performances. She is also an avid reader. Makayla’s favorite book is the infamous Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. She was a state finalist in the Governor’s Honors Program! She was accepted into the University of Tennessee for a degree in Computer Science with a minor in Psychology. She is still deciding if this is where she will call “home” after graduation.

Makayla loves hanging out with friends and enjoying lots of different activities from gingerbread house decorating to concerts! She has a sweet, witty personality and is an absolute joy to be around! Our session was so much fun as we bounced around Cartersville, Georgia. Her mom is equally as fun and sweet, and it was a pleasure working with both of them.

Elizabeth Edwards is what you would call an “old soul’ with a love for all things vintage and glam. She adores actresses such as Lucille Ball, Julie Andrews, and Audrey Hepburn. Her fashion sense is a mix of old hollywood glam with her own modern twist. Elizabeth was crowned Miss Troup County Outstanding Teen in 2015, and also competed in the 2015 Miss Georgia Outstanding Teen! She has a beautiful singing voice too! She dreams of being an author and motivational speaker in the future. Elizabeth excels academically and is an honor graduate. She was recently awarded the Presidential Scholarship with Recognition at the prestigious Oglethorpe University, which is one of the highest awards offered! She plans to major Christian studies with a minor English/Education.

She has the most bubbly, yet gentle, personality that she captures the entire room. Her smile lights up her face and she speaks with a mature, confident voice that you just know she is going places. It has been the most amazing honor to get to know her and be her senior photographer. As if this wasn’t magical enough, her family is equally as outstanding. I absolutely love her mother and father, Vanessa and Steve! Her younger brother Omar is hilarious and talented in his own right. It was an extremely fun session in Atlanta, GA. Elizabeth is proof that the stellar reputation of Bremen City schools is accurate.

I am so proud of you Elizabeth, and I am so excited to see where your life takes you.

Also, a new feature product we now offer at VBP is senior films! This is my very first one with Elizabeth and I am in love with capturing the motion and beauty of real time with my seniors.

Chasidy and her mom came to me wanting something unique and classic for her senior portraits. We came up with a beautiful mix of both modern and vintage looks and planned to do locations in the North Georgia area. Our original location choice did not work out, however I knew the area and we quickly shifted gears and the new location worked better than we could have even imagined. Chasidy asked about using an old style tree swing, but I did not know of one in the area at the time that we planned her session. Then we found the PERFECT venue and it had a SWING just like she imagined!! I believe this location “hiccup” was divine intervention!

One of the amazing things about the VB Senior Experience is the team that comes along to make everything perfect! I am there to photograph you but we also have an amazing makeup and hair artist that changes your looks to match each outfit! Chasidy went from soft, vintage makeup and hair to edgy, modern looks in no time. We laughed, we played, we had sweet mother and daughter moments that would bring a tear to your eye. I absolutely LOVED that Chasidy incorporated her great grandmother’s vintage mirror into her session as well. It was so perfect and added a beautiful sentimental touch!

In Chasidy’s words, “The whole experience really boosted my self confidence and gave me something to look forward to for such an important year in my life! My favorite part was the ENTIRE day! Just doing something for myself and getting all dressed up was amazing!”

In Sandi’s words, Chasidy’s mom, “I wanted her to feel like the day belonged to her (Chasidy)! She felt like a professional model…she had the most INCREDIBLE day! She looked like she was in a dream she didn’t want to wake up from! It was more than I ever thought I would spend on pictures, but it was worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY! Priceless!”

This year’s fashion show was a great success! The VB Senior Spokesmodels did amazing walking the runway and Cinderella’s Gowns had some GORGEOUS dresses from the 2015 prom. The day started with hair and make-up for the models and setting up everything just right. I was able to book a super talented DJ (DJ Mickey Nightrain) to really pump the show up and create the perfect atmosphere. We even had a little red carpet corner for everyone to get their pictures made and have a good time. I couldn’t have asked for better results and cannot wait for next year!

Thank you to the great photographer friends that managed to capture the night for us as well. You were such a fun addition to the team John and Francesco.

Also, to Megan Moroney, a future celebrity I am sure…you did a breathtaking cover of two sweet songs. Check that out a sample of that show here:

To my sweet, and beautiful, models…you all ROCKED it out. I am so so proud of each and every one of you! I hope it was a fun experience and a memory you will treasure for life. Thank you again for being a part of my team and I look forward to watching you all graduate in a few short months!!

Now for the footage of the big night (video and pictures):

This past October I had the honor of flying to Houston, TX to learn some amazing things about senior photography! I also had the opportunity to work with some gorgeous Houston area seniors!

This trip was one of the most amazing experiences for me both personally and professionally. I learned so much, but most importantly, I gained confidence in myself and made wonderful friendships with fellow photographers.

My next trip is in February and all the way to San Diego, CA!!! I am sure the images I get from the modeling sessions will be amazing as well. Learning and growing is something I will always strive to do in my business as well as personal life.

I will never feel like I know all I need to know, and I will always want to one up myself! I think that is a positive energy in life and will keep my business and skill at the highest possible level. My clients deserve THE BEST after all 😉

So here are a few images that I loved the most from my first solo trip and learning experience outside of my local town.
