I had so much fun photographing Alexa and Tyler a few months ago – yes, I’m still way behind on my blogging, but now we can all dream of warmer weather and relive summer again!! When this GORGEOUS girl was a baby, she used to come to my house at 6am and spent 3 days […]

  I love meeting high school seniors for their senior photos. Sydney actually graduated about a week before we took these pictures.
