YOU MAKE THESE CONNECTIONS. IT IS FUNNY HOW IT HAPPENS. BUT WATCHING IT UNFOLD IS ALMOST MAGICAL. I MET TERRI A FEW YEARS AGO ONLINE AND WE BECAME FRIENDS. SHE FEW TO AUSTIN TO MENTOR WITH ME AND SHE EVEN STAYED IN MY VERY UNFINISHED HOME REMODEL…LIKE NO KITCHEN NOT FINISHED. WE EXPLORED AUSTIN, WE ATE, WE LAUGHED, WE STAYED UP SUPER LATE PLAYING WITH CAR LIGHTS, CAMERAS AND SPRINKLERS… IT WAS A WEEKEND OF EVERYTHING I NEEDED PLUS SOME.

 

WHEN SHE SIGNED UP FOR THE SENIOROLOGIE SHOOTOUT I WAS TEACHING AT I WAS THRILLED TO GET TO SEE MY FRIEND AND SPEND TIME WITH HER. BUT WHEN SHE HIRED ME TO DO SOME UPDATED HEADSHOTS FOR HER NEW SIGHT I WAS BEYOND HONORED AND HUMBLED. TO BE ASKED BY AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER TO SHOOT THEIR HEADSHOTS…THE ONES THEY WILL DISPLAY TO REPRESENT THEM TO THEIR FOLLOWING IS HUMBLING. IT WAS COLD, IT WAS GLOOMY, IT WAS PERFECT.

a year ago when I attended WPPI  a few of my photographer friends and I decided to call up some models and go out to the desert and shoot since that terrain isn’t anything like what we have here in Texas. it was a small group of us so we all got to shoot…a lot.

So many people have swooned over those images…as did myself… I thought it would be fun to do it again this year!
A few of my friends were talking about it and we decided it would be more fun if YOU got to come too!

So here is what we planned. FOUR photographers specializing in high school senior portraits….that means FOUR different shooting styles to learn from!

TRUE MOUA   CHRISTINA RAMIREZ   LATASHA HAYNES  SPANKI MILLS

EIGHT senior aged models… I am NOT kidding when I say you are going to DIE when you see these girls…

and one of Nevada’s most sought after locations to not only shoot at but just to see while you are there… Nelson Ghost Town. Y’all. old abandoned buildings, plane wreckage, desert sunsets…are you kidding!!!

we will break off into four small groups, each group will get one shoot “leader” and 2 models. you will then be broken into 2 smaller groups to shoot. we want a VERY small shoot/model ratio to ensure you each get the shots you want and have time to instruct and pose your model before switching to the next model and rotating groups. the shoot leaders will be there to help field questions, give suggestions, help pose, etc… we are there to HELP so come with questions!:)

what a Christmas it was… so let me explain. one of my twins has been a “horse” person from day one. the kid ate drank and breathed horses. he would watch horses in the neighboring pasture, he wanted stuffed horses and stick horses and plastic horses and every kind of toy horse he could get his little baby hands on. when he ran, he galloped…and I am pretty sure he’d neigh a time or two…he was a HORSE. but, like anything a real live, big, eating, pooping, running, pasture going horse is a BIG responsibility. and as parents with 4 kids it wasn’t in the cards for us to get him his own horse.

 

until now.

 

and the very day that horse stepped hooves into the pasture…the twin brother was wide eyed. he wanted to ride, he wanted to saddle, he wanted to brush…all of a sudden…he wanted a horse too.

so. for Christmas Santa did good. he did real good. and there hasn’t been a morning yet that I haven’t woken up to see two little boys out riding and laughing and bonding as brothers on their horses.
