Rebbecca showed up at my door Monday morning. Her photographer canceled her appointment last minute, but Rebbecca had already taken time off school. Some times I just adore spontaneous projects. I love not having to think about sessions ahead of time. Of course last minute endeavors do not always turn out so sweet, but I could not have hand picked a better person to photograph. Rebbecca was a natural with the camera. I absolutely loved photographing her. What a suburb way to start out a Monday.
Glen, the father of the beautiful family hired me for some promotional head shots a couple of years ago. Aside from his excellent portraits I believe that he hired me for his family photos on the grounds that both he and my husband are from "down under." Though different countries I think they try to stick together. We lucked out with a great afternoon with perfect portrait lighting conditions.

Melvina's Aunt Glendor has frequented my studio often with a arm full of Katchina dolls for sale. The hand carved dolls are always colorful and intricate. I have purchased a few as gifts for family members in New Zealand. I like supporting fellow artists. When Glendora asked me about whether or not Melvina could wear her traditional native dress for her senior photos I was thrilled at the idea. Originally we had intended to do the entire shoot outdoors, but the weather had different plans for us. Since Melvina traveled over three hours for the photos we made good use of our studio time instead. Her eyes tell a thousand stories.
Stunning and so sweet! I have been meaning to blog about this senior session for over a week. This shoot was full of chasing smiles and bubbles. Demetria is full of pizazz had a great idea to bring bubbles to the shoot, but we struggled to blow enough bubbles to capture the essence of what we wanted. The good news is that while chasing bubbles out came the smiles that I was seeking and so success was had in my books. Bubbles are so much fun that I think I may need a bubble making machine.
