Carmen Salazar Seniors - 2009 {Katrina}

Beautiful...Beautiful...Beautiful!!! I was so excited about this session and how wonderful Katrina did. She has such a cute style and sense about her...which came through in her images so well. She walked into the studio with piles of clothes and we crafted some pretty cute stuff out of it all. Thank you were so much fun to photograph!

Family Portraits {The S* Family} Teaser!

What a good lookin family! The S* Family chose to do an urban session for the family portraits and I'm so glad they did. This first shot of the family with the train whizzing by in the background is my favorite! I've never been that close to a train moving that fast! As you can see...the little on the left is terrified and the little on on the right is so intrigued! Thank you for such a fun shoot and entertaining all of my ideas. Enjoy!
