Squad Team Goals | Goodbye to Summer | 2017 Model Team | Styled Session






    













 So, About the time that T. Swift was having her Squad 4th of July blow out par-tay we were having our own squad party of another kind...a working kind. A painting the studio, water balloons, Popsicle and photo shoot kind.

A few of our Class of 2017 Model Crew came (at least the ones that were in town) to paint for points and have some fun! And well...here is is a month and a half later and yep, we didn't get any further on painting the studio than we did that day. Oh well.... it's been a busy summer!

However,  not to be outdone by Taylor, we have our own pictures from that day. A farewell ode to summer on this fallish feeling day. Now, school is back in session, labor day is just around the corner and the days are getting shorter. We will sure miss you summer! Can't wait to see you again!

Independence Day | My Favorite Holiday














The last few years, on the 4th of July, a plethora of flag pictures have flooded social media. Here are just a few of our seniors that we have helped add to all those photos over the years.

I LOVE flag photos. And, the 4th is my favorite holiday! Not because it is the day our country celebrates it's independence. Although, that is a very important and meaningful part of it. But, my reasons are more self centered and not near as important or deep.

I love it because... unlike other holidays in Colorado, the weather is almost always awesome. We can be outside, we can barbecue. We can enjoy the beauty of our great land. 

Also, unlike other holidays (at least in our family) it comes with no preconceived ideas of what it should be.  We can go see fireworks. Or not. We can have people over. Or not. We can buy special food or presents. Or not.  A day off to celebrate stress free! And, be free to do whatever we want. Just like our forefathers fought so valiantly to achieve...freedom! So, maybe my reasons are a little deeper than I first thought. lol.

I do SO love Independence Day! And flag senior portraits! Thanks to all these seniors above who share my love of the flag and the 4th!

Princess Prom | The Next Four Princesses | 2017 Model Team | Styled Session

















And, finally finishing up with our princess Prom Styled Session..... where we transformed our Class of 2017 Senior Models into Princesses with their Prom dresses...here are our last Four Stunning Princesses...KJ as Rapunzel (high up in her tower and then rescued from her tower), Megan as Jasmine (aboard her flying carpet), Whitney as our Ariel (with the perfect prom dress for Ariel) and Madi H. (who couldn't be more perfect ) as Belle!

Again, from previous posts in case you didn't see or read them....it was cold, and we didn't get to go to "the castle" like we planned, these girls slayed it and got so much in character!

Special shout outs to our assistant Brenda, who is always, always such a help. To our hair and make up artist Heather who worked miracles transforming 8 girls into princesses in a short time frame and to our Model Whitney's mom who was a huge help, even hauling out "magic carpets" from the entryway to the back yard. No small feat!


So love our models! We have a summer of fun planned with them for more model sessions and their senior sessions where they get time all to themselves!

Princess Prom | The First Four Princesses | 2017 Model Team | Styled Session
















In a previous post, I showed our Class of 2017 Model Team in a Styled Session we did for Prom. Those were the images so we could show off their beautiful Prom dresses.  After those photos we transformed them into beautiful princesses. Here are our first four princesses... Snow White as played by Hailey, Elsa as played by Keri, Cinderella played by Madi and Skylar as Sleeping Beauty.

Although it was cold, and we didn't get to go to "the castle" like we planned, these girls slayed it and got so much in character!

Special shout outs to our assistant Brenda, who is always, always such a help. To our hair and make up artist Heather who worked miracles transforming 8 girls into princesses in a short time frame and to our Model Whitney's mom who was a huge help, even hauling out "magic carpets" from the entryway to the back yard.
