Usually to make a photo look good.....






Usually, to make a photo look really good we photographers have to pull all sorts of magic out of our bag of tricks. Getting rid of eye bags or acne. Brightening eyes or fixing a stray hair. In Alex's case, she is so naturally beautiful, with flawless skin, I didn't have to do much to these photos for them to look great. I just want to shout to my other photographer friends....Look what walked through my door!!
Alex, her mom and her sister were just wonderful. Helping me so much with posing and reflectors. It was such a great way to come back from my photography seminar in Ohio! I got to try some new things I learned and I'm so pleased with the results. Well, Alex is a lot of the reason I'm so pleased. I don't think this girl can take a bad portrait!
Thanks guys for a fun morning. It was great getting to know you! Alex's mom was so sweet, I was talking so much with her, I didn't get a chance to really hammer Alex with all the questions I usually hammer seniors with. Probably lucky thing for Alex! lol!
Oh yeah, and one more thing... the last image.....same as the one above it. Just cropped and in black and white! Alex's mom said she liked black and white!

WOW WOW WOW. Michelle, YOU captured Alex. Every one of these photos shows who she is. Alex, we are so proud of you. You are beautiful inside and out. Michelle, I am so pleased that we chose you as our photographer. You are truly an artist. The photos are stunning, and the photo shoot this morning was a day will never forget. I say YOU are the “Best Kept Secret” in Parker! I hope you won’t be over booked when Sydney is a senior. We are THRILLED! Thank you.
