Meet Tiffany!

She’s super sweet and she’s a senior this year!  I absolutely love photographing senior portraits!  I always have a blast when I’m out shooting and the best thing about seniors is the absolute courage they have in front of the camera!  They just go for it and there is nothing more incredible than someone who can just let go of all fear of looking silly and just be completely themselves… silly, serious, funny, modely (that IS a word for the purpose of this post!)  and all that goes in between!

Tiffany did all that and more!  When you meet her you just instantly feel at ease.  She has that natural confidence about her that opens her up to conversation and friendship and a real sincere relationship!

She is absolutely gorgeous but after spending about 10 minutes time with her, you realize that her beauty enhances as you notice it comes from the inside out!

We chatted the entire session about lots of different things but one thing I noticed about Tiffany is that she a great listener which is a rare quality these days.  I bet that her close friends would say that she is the first person they think to call when they just need someone to lean on.  She’s the one that people call on for advice or when they just aren’t sure of something, they call Tiffany!

She is fun and spunky and I know this year is going to hold some great adventures for her!

Here are some of my favorites from our session!  It was really hard for me to choose.

It’s like Dory says… “just keep swimming… just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…”

We’ve been doing a LOT of swimming this past week.  Thank goodness our little man is part fish I think and loves to swim.  Because you see when he isn’t in the pool, he’s screaming to go outside and he’s been a real crank monster!  I think he is teething AND possibly hitting a growth spurt;  but let me tell you,  this week hasn’t been easy!

He’s decided he doesn’t want to nap anymore… at all!  It’s not just his morning nap… it’s all naps (as I type a single tear drips down my cheek!).  I’m praying it’s just a phase that maybe has to do with the teeth or the spurt.  I’m begging that it will pass.  Will you please say a little prayer for me that it is a phase that’s on it’s way out the door?!

But until then, I just keep repeating the wise words of Dory and we just keep on swimming;  both literally and figuratively!

Little man is happiest when he’s in the pool these days and I’m happy to have caught a few moments of his splashing, curious, I just went under water happy moments!

These remind me that just as Dory says… rough days too will pass but these precious moments (good and bad) happen just so quickly!  It’s nice to have a constant reminder now of go grab that camera!

And…. breathe and keep on swimming!

OH and p.s. the winner of the this guy needs a name contest…. random selection is (drum roll please)

We met this handsome fellow at the petting zoo two weekends ago!  He’s a pretty handsome devil, wouldn’t you say!

The problem is:  we failed to get his name!  We met Chester and Melven and a few others; but totally neglected to get this happy to model show off’s name.

This is where you come in… Give him a name!  And if you pick the right (clever) name, you win a gift card to good old starbucks !

Who do you think he looks like?!  What name feels right to you???  And what will you get at starbucks?!
