Madison, Chrisman High School Senior

Once again, more of my friends children are graduating high school. I can’t believe Madison is a 2021 graduate.

Jonna & Kyle Engaged

Well if this couple doesn’t just have fun written ALL over it! You guys were so much fun to work with. All of Kyle’s great face expressions and random blowing in your face or pushing you off the seat photos crack me up. It’s always so refreshing to see people who genuinely enjoy each other’s […]

Ryanns Sneak-a-Peak

This girl needs to sign up for modeling. What a spontaneous, creative and fun girl to spend a beautiful (non windy) evening with. Her mom was just as youthful loving the West Bottoms as much as us and being a ladder for Ryann as she tries to climb up a giant, abandoned building. I hope […]
