Mackenzie | Ponderosa High School | Class of 2017














It's Mackenzie's turn for her blog post! This blue eyed, blond haired beauty looks like she stepped straight off the pages of a Hollister catalog! And, just like her beachy, surfer girl look, she loves the pool and the place she wants to most visit is Jamaica. 

I love the advice she gave when asked her best advice, "You gotta love yourself before you love anyone else."

Her favorite movie? The Notebook. Mine too! Favorite Sport? Football. Yep there too. She loves reading and dogs. In fact, if she won the lottery she would buy dogs. Good choice Mackenzie! I would have a lot more than one, IF I didn't need to clean up after them and had a better enclosed yard.

She wants to be a nurse, but her dream job is a doctor. Follow your dreams girl! We think you would make a great doctor or a nurse! Both are amazing occupations and so needed!

Thanks for choosing us for your senior portraits gorgeous Mackenzie! We LOVED photographing you!

KJ | Ponderosa High School | Class of 2017 Senior

















Oh KJ! This girl blew us away with her activities and involvement when she applied to be a senior model! Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, Newspaper, Athletic council, Link Crew, student Council,  and lots and lots of swimming, to name a few.

In fact, in our senior questionnaire she said the best part of high school was getting involved and setting an example. And, what an example she set as a part of our team. Always on time, involved and bubbling over with enthusiasm. I think I must have told her mom how much I enjoyed her about a million times.

Also, on her questionnaire we ask for them to tell us "something about your best friend" and she said "everyone thinks we are dating". They're not. But, they have known each other forever and are the best of friends. So we photographed a couple of the two of them together. And, he helped out with her swim pics, since he is also a swimmer.

Oh KJ! You... with the Abercrombie good looks, the hair anyone would die for, the love and life and brains to match.....we can't wait to see where this wonderful life takes you!

Happy Thanksgiving | Farewell to Fall | Creative Session
















Happy Thanksgiving!! So sad to see fall wrapping up!! Here's a model post from another Collaboration with Tanja Melone Photography from a few years back that never got a blog post. LOVED this shoot with our 2014 Models. I had just photographed an engagement session at this spot and wanted to go back. There were a few less leaves but still stunning.

Every fall I think I will go back to shoot here and I never find the time. So Sad! Thought I would revisit this shoot before all the Christmas madness begins and to point our how thankful I am to live is such a beautiful state! I may complain about the cold once in a while, and while I love to travel and see the world..... But.... truthfully.....Colorado you have my heart!

So thankful for so many things this year!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! One of my favorite holidays that totally does not get the attention it deserves. As the screen saver of my phone says......Be Kind. Be Thoughtful. Be Genuine. But most of all... Be Thankful!
