Class of 2009: Katie Neely

YAY… my first senior! I had the honor of shooting Katie’s portrait for the River Queen Pageant (basically Miss Clarksville) in 2007 where she won the title of Miss Teen River Queen, next to my sister, Lindsey. Katie then made the top 15 in Miss Teen Tennessee… we’re so proud! I couldn’t have asked for a more fun and photogenic girl to kick off my senior portfolio, eh?

Manry + Justin: Engaged!

Picture an injured boy at the hospital being nursed back to health by a beautiful girl… then next thing they know, they’re getting married! A real life love story with these two. I’ll admit this has been one of my favorite engagement sessions, ever… possibly one of the top 5 favorite couples, right Justin? :) haha.

Avery’s big ONE

We finally made it… little Avery’s first birthday! After being invited to the big party, I decided to document the event: cake, presents… all her buddies were there to celebrate!Then Mary Beth and I dressed her up for her 1yr photos… we even snagged a few of her in her birthday tu-tu before she got too fed up with my camera. Hope to try for a few more this summer, too. Now we’ll start working on her one-year-book! So excited!

Susie + Travis

I met these two while photographing a friend’s wedding last year… and can’t wait to be there for their big day in August. We walked around Samford’s campus for a few of the picks…then on to downtown Birmingham to some of my favorite go-to spots. This photo shoot turned out just like the couple: laid back and fun. :) I got to use one of my favorite new songs, too, for their slideshow… by the Plain White T’s.
