Gabbie George Washington High School

Gabbie | George Washington High School

This fall I saw a influx in George Washington High School seniors and the trend continued throughout the the season.  Gabbie was the sixth or seventh member of her class that I photographed.  It was late November before we photographed her session and getting rather chilly but Gabbie was a trooper.  She never once complained even when wearing her green dress.  (Speaking of that dress... can we just take a moment to gush about how  fabulous it is?!?)   We were able to squeeze in multiple downtown spots, a few outdoorsy fall scenes and, of course, her beloved lacrosse gear during...

Haley Poca High School

Haley | Poca High School

I cannot believe January is almost over and by now we're probably all frozen!  Aren't you glad I still have some amazing fall senior sessions to share with you?  It was beginning to turn chilly when we photographed Haley from Poca High Schools session.   We managed to have tons of fun despite needing coats and gloves between shots. If you're a senior at PHS be sure to chat with Haley about senior portraits if you still need to get them or you're a member of the Class of 2019!  It's never too late or early to schedule.  And she...

Cassie George Washington High School

Cassie | George Washington High School

This fall I have been very blessed with many Patriots from George Washington High School as clients.   Cassie booked her session after seeing her fabulous friend Ashton 's senior session  and I'm so blessed to have met both of these lovely ladies.  Cassie was laid back, fun and so very down to earth.  We kicked off her session in downtown Charleston with cuffed jeans and her favorite Birkenstock sandals.  Afterwards we headed to Coonskin Park where she wore the most amazing brown boots and blue dress.   I love Cassie's whimsical style and how she allowed her personality to shine through...

Gabi Roane County HIgh School

Gabi | Roane County High School

Since starting my Model Team a few years ago I have had a fabulous representative from Roane County High School each year.  This year the lovely Gabi represents RCHS on our team and she's truly an amazing addition to the KBP family.  Gabi is a cheerleader and dancer but her biggest accomplishment was devoting her time in Arizona on a mission trip.  She truly has a heart of gold. If you're a senior at RCHS be sure to chat with Gabi about senior portraits if you still need to get them or you're a member of the Class of 2019!...

Brooke St Albans HIgh School

Brooke | St Albans High School

Fall sessions were a game of chance with the weather.  Temperatures bounced from chilly to extremely warm and the leaves refused to change.  We had to reschedule the lovely Brooke from St Albans High School session a few times due to rain, cold weather and Mother Nature causing general havoc.  We finally had a break in the weather and a beautiful day for her session.  The leaves began to change and gave us a gorgeous backdrop at Coonskin Park giving us the perfect mix of urban and warm fall colors during her session.

Jasmine Tug Valley High School

Jasmine | Tug Valley High School

One of the most flattering things for a photographer is to have client's travel from out-of-town to you.  When Jasmine from Tug Valley High School first contacted me to set up her session I remember clarifying with her how far of a distance she'd be traveling.  She was determined... she wanted a session in Charleston with me and the longer the better.  I'm so glad she knew what she wanted because her session turned out amazingly.  Jasmine is absolutely gorgeous  and the camera loves her.  I'm excited for us to reunite this spring for another session!

Ashton George Washington High School

Ashton | George Washington High School

Raise your hand if you're longing for warmer days?  After last week's bitter cold I'm wishing we were back to Ashton's senior session.  Funny thing... we thought it was chilly on this day.  Ha!  Hindsight truly is 20/20. Ashton is a senior at George Washington High School and one of the most stylish seniors I know.  She showed up at her session with an entire wardrobe from Altar'd State and fabulous accessories to match.   Our plan was to keep her session more outdoorsy at Rippling Waters Campground but when I saw her final outfit I knew we had to head...

Payten Sissonville High School

Payten | Sissonville High School

Every year I find some of the most amazing seniors to be a part of KBP's Senior Model Team.  This year's team includes the lovely Payten from Sissonville High School.  Payten is very involved in her school activities and last summer she won a scholarship to study abroad in Frankfurt, Germany and Paris, France. She was able to take German and French classes which she hopes to use when studying abroad during college.  I'm so excited to see where her future leads.  I'm sure it will be amazing! If you're a senior at SHS be sure to chat with Payten about...

Kayla George Washington High School Trivillian Soda Shop

Kayla’s Soda Fountain Session | George Washington High School

Scheduling senior sessions in the late fall between a Kayla's school schedule and working proved to be a bit tricky.  We attempted everything within our power to have her session on a warm day but Mother Nature won.  The day of her session the temperature was a lovely 34 degrees.  Thirty four degrees y'all!?!  Thankfully the staff at Trivillian's Pharmacy and Soda Fountain were kind enough to let us shoot Kayla's session at their location.   The adorable soda shop decor combined with her red cherry dress ended in a perfect combination.  We were even able to pop outside for...

Dylan George Washington High School

Dylan | George Washington High School

It's been a wild and crazy fall/winter y'all!  My goal in 2017 was to shoot more seniors and this fall I did that.  It was a very blessed season.  Sadly I also dropped the ball on blogging some amazing sessions because I was so busy with shooting sessions. I met Dylan from George Washington High School, his momma and I met at Coonskin Park in October for his senior session.  Most high school senior boys are apprehensive about having their photographs taken in the beginning but Dylan was a natural.  I'm excited to meet up with him the spring for...

Kelly | Roane County High School | Cap & Gown Session

It's that time of the year again, when I say goodbye to my beloved seniors and say hello to a new class.  When I think of Kelly I think of the phrase from the Wizard of Oz, "I think I'll miss you most of all."  We've done more sessions together than I have ever done with any client.  She traveled with me to take photos with a US Army Blackhawk helicopter,  braved the rain her junior year for a prom session and has had multiple full sessions.  She has truly had more photographs taken in her senior year than anyone...

Maddi | Capital High School | Cap & Gown Session

It should shock no one to see Maddi's beautiful face from Capitol High School pop up on the blog.  She's been seen a time or two from Prom Mini Sessions to her full session in the fall.  Maddi took full advantage of her senior year and photos with many sessions throughout the year and we wrapped up her year with a cap & gown session.  A quick 20 minute session to capture her in her final senior outfit and she was ready to head off to college.  Well not really, but I had her prepared with tons of senior photo...

Baileigh Buffal High School

Baileigh | Buffalo High School

High school is all about experiences, activities & keeping busy until senior year.  Most seniors participate in an activity or two their senior year but many slack off.  The concept of slacking off does not exist in Baileigh's vocabulary.  She was Homecoming Queen, cheerleader, played softball and SkillsUSA.  Her senior year was so busy that she almost forgot to have senior photographs!  A few weeks before the year ended she contacted me for a last-minute session in downtown Charleston.  We had so much fun hanging out with her family, exploring downtown and taking "real photos, not Instagram photos" (as the...

Prom 2017 Charleston WV

Prom 2017 | Charleston + Spencer WV Senior Photographer

One of  my favorite times of the year is Prom.  My daughter loves to tag along with me and see the beautiful princesses.  She is 100% convinced they all stepped straight out of a Disney movie.  We battled rain and cooler than normal temperatures on many of the prom sessions but the ladies were fabulous and rallied through with me.  I've been so thankful to get to know these beautiful girls this year.  They're going to set the world on fire as they enter into adulthood.

The Results are In… 2017 Shoot & Share Contest

When I started my journey into photography in 2009 (as a hobbyist) I never dreamt I would be where I am today.  I also never dreamt I would have the confidence to enter a contest!  This year with the urging of my close friends, Andrea Martin and Autumn Branscome, I entered the Shoot & Share contest.  I had no idea what to expect when entering.  It was my first contest ever!  My goal was to hit the top 30% with one image out of the fifty I entered. (Spoiler alert: I hit the goal!!!!) Over 332,768 photos were entered in this year's...
