Sami - Central High School - Madison County Photographer

I know that Sami is waiting for her preview and I'm looking forward to her viewing premiere! I had so much fun with her from planning outfits, to hair and make-up at Perfectly Polished (they did incredible!!), to photographing in the studio and around Highland and finally ending the day in Saint Louis. We started out meeting beforehand and planning outfits for her shoot. She had plenty of ideas and different options to choose from and I think we pulled together some awesome stuff, like using all of her Cheerleading bows as props! We had a blast walking and finding interesting spots in Saint Louis. She was a total natural in front of the camera, barely needing any instruction from me! And believe me, I give lots of instruction usually ;) Brenda, Sami's Mom was a huge help here, holding the reflector for me and even though we may have blinded Sami a few times, it was worth it to get the shot ;) Plus, Brenda was always ready with jewelry and outfit swaps, which saved us lots of time!

Sami, I had a great time meeting and hanging out with you and I think your images turned out amazing! I can't wait to show you them all! xoxo, H 2013-05-03_0008.jpg

We love PhotogEdu! [St Louis Senior Photographer]

If there are two things I love (more than my hub and babe), it's photography education and southern california. When I heard I'd have the chance to combine the two, I jumped on it. And of course, the hubs decided to join me, even though he'd have two whole days by himself (Im pretty positive he found a golf course or two...) I'm always trying to find new and exciting educational opportunities because in the world of photography, there is always something to learn. The location was La Jolla, California - a cute little beach community located just barely north of San Diego and the workshop was held at the La Valencia Hotel. It focused on senior photography, which is perfect since that season is just around the corner! We learned so much and I absolutely can't wait to start implementing some of the new ideas! Check out our iphone images from the trip!

Oh just self-portraits, you know...


Fun with the hubby at the beach and Little Italy in Downtown San Diego. We ate at a little place called Filippi's Pizza Grotto, located behind their Italian Deli. If we went off first impressions, we might have left - but given we were both recommended to go their from two separate people, we walked in. It was the best Italian food we've ever had!


And being that I'm the unofficial Queen of Sunglasses, I of course had to find two pairs while we were there. 2013-05-03_0006.jpg
