    As I reviewed the pictures with Jane last evening I could not help but recall a word that means a lot but is rarely used, “Treasurable Moments”. That is what the session was like, opening a treasure you have waited a lifetime for and now it is my turn to experience these rich gifts of, passion, love, memories, moments that are so brief and yet memorable that they capture what your life is all about. Jane and I are very blessed and some would say highly favored but all I know for sure is that I got to experience treasure. Thanks Lani!ReplyCancel

Seniors and their Pets

One of the things I love to do at my pre-session consultations is to find out what makes this senior tick. For some seniors it’s all about their beloved sports, or maybe music or their car/truck or their pet. Earlier today I was privileged to have two of my pictures from a session with a senior...

    Annalies’ Senior Preview {Saint Louis Senior Photographer}

    Annalies is my son’s Sunday School Teacher. I was thrilled to have the chance to shoot her senior session! She is a gorgeous girl with a bit of a wild side. Would you ever guess she’d be the kind of girl to have a pet snake? Me either! And boy did Miss Olive bring us...

      These are great! Of course, I’m a little biased about the model! She’s gorgeous. I love the different venues. They really make the photos unique. Thanks again for making the senior picture experience such a fun one for Annalies. She had a great time!ReplyCancel

    • Kim CavarrettaOctober 13, 2010 - 10:08 am

      WOW! Beautiful! That little girl grew up! I met her 14 years ago….never knew about the snake! I think the “wild side” is directly from her mother! KimReplyCancel

      These pictures are awesome. I really like all the backgrounds. I am happy that she got a picture with her snake-very cool. Of course, Annalies is a natural beauty. This must run in the family! I think the photograher did a great job with the different poses.ReplyCancel

      What wonderful photos! The outdoor settings, poses, and uses of color/black & white were unique and creative. And, of course, Annalies looked beautiful, as she always does. Thank you for sharing them with us!ReplyCancel

    • Beth HollanderOctober 16, 2010 - 10:20 am

      The photos are great. I love the different places that Annalies was photographed. Annalies is pretty. We had Cameron’s senior pictures taken last summer. It is hard to pick the best. I did not realize that Annalies and Cameron are the same age. Isn’t college hunting fun!ReplyCancel

      The pictures are wonderful. Thanks for sharing them with us. She was just a little girl when you moved in. We have watched Annalies grow up to be a beautiful young lady. I know you are very prooud of her.ReplyCancel

    • Kay BachOctober 25, 2010 - 11:23 am

      It is so hard to pic a favorite . . . when you have the best photographer and a gorgeous model as the “subject”, they’re all fabulous. If I had to pick, I love the colored pic of Annalies laying on her stomach leaning on her hand. These pics could be in VOGUE magazine!ReplyCancel

    • Dana FrenzelOctober 25, 2010 - 11:28 am

      ABSOLUTELY FAB -U – LOUS !!!!!!!!!!! What a unique and artistic form of expression!! (Fits with the WILD side) : ) The model is quite exquisite with a familiar look to her eyes. Hmmm…. And…….. Who was her make – up artist? ……….Her skin is flawless with a hint of color in all the right places…. Watch out for those boys mom : ). Have a great Senior year!!!! Everyday Matters!!! Measure not the Milestones……….. but The Moments!!! DanaReplyCancel

      The first time I met Annalies she was playing with Mary Kay with her friend. She has grown up to be a beautiful young lady. Love the pictures!! My favorite is the arch in the back ground and cobblestones.ReplyCancel
