{sneak peek – Taylor}

Published by Jan under senior

Taylor’s session was held at Lord’s Park in Elgin. She is a gorgeous girl that LOVES dance! She is hoping to attend college in Michigan and study jazz dance and then dance professionally with a traveling dance repertoire. She is very involved with extra-curricular activities at school and is a football cheerleader and performs with the pom squad during the basketball season. We had a gorgeous fall-like day (even though it is still August!!) and she had a nice variety of outfits to choose from. Hope you like your sneak peek Taylor!

Taylor even brought her dance outfit and pointe shoes. Ohhh to be able to move this way…

{Sam – 2010}

Published by Jan under senior,teen

Wow – feels wierd to be typing “2010″ but that what time of year it is.  This years seniors – 2010.  I LOVE senior sessions and this was no exception.

Sam is a Huntley High School senior.  Her mom and my youngest sister were best friends growing up.  I’ve lost touch with her mom (probably haven’t seen her in 15 years!) so it was a lot of fun seeing her again.  Her grandma came to the session also since she was best friends with my mom!  So even before the shooting started I had a lot of catching up to do.  And I know that there isn’t a senior on the face of this earth that wants to hear they look like their mom, but since I hadn’t seen Sam’s mom since she was in high school I thought the resemblance was uncany!

Sam & her sister (the fashion and pose police lol!) were a riot.  Her session started in their backyard and then we went to Sun City also.  Sam is really into the arts – all kinds – drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, you name it!  Good luck this year Sam and hope you love your pictures!

The “B” Family Sneak Peek

Published by Jan under family,teen

I had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful family before Brittnee heads back to college and Ashlyn starts college this fall. I did Ashlyn’s senior pictures last fall so this was a time to reconnect and hear about how all her plans are finalizing for studing equine therapy and massage in West Virginia.
The session was held in thier spacious backyard and the 2 yellow labs provided all the entertainment for the evening. Whenever we wanted them in shots they weren’t interested and when we didn’t want them in the shot we couldn’t get them out of the way!!! They are so cute and so full of energy! Hallie – you have a gorgeous family and I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Laughter, giggles, smiles, unbridled energy and enthusiasm. Those words describe this session. I had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family again. They were sooo much fun and were all soooo cute. I loved the girls matching summer dresses and the boys were oh so handsome in their polos and khakis. The session was held in their rural Lily Lake yard and the weather was PERFECT!!!
