As you can see, we had another awesome day to work with. It was a little cold, but I love that, since heat is not my friend (headaches and I don’t regulate heat well). It was perfect for me:)and Connor brought some sweaters, so that was perfect for him!

We are on day 6 of Bellarmine and today we feature Sydney! Sydney is a country girl at heart, so we did a more rustic setting for her senior shoot. She loves her dog, so that’s where we started!

Yes, I have more Bellarmine Prep seniors. Today, it’s my senior, Olivia! We did her session downtown where there was lots of interesting locations to use.

It’s another awesome Bellarmine Prep senior! Jaxson is the son of an old REI work friend. I can’t tell you how honored I am that my work friends remember me when it comes to senior portaits, family portraits and weddings. I love that they trust me and that after 5 years I’m not forgotten:). Time for a group hug:)!!

Jaxson loves nature and it was important for him to have that woodsy feel, so I picked the perfect spot for him.

He was great in front of the camera, even with his mom, sister and friend watching. Confident, funny, smart, goodlooking… he has it all!

Rachel is a Bellarmine Prep senior and she wanted to have some fun in the snow for her customized senior session. We decided to head to the mountains, stopping along the way to capture a few shots at the railroad park.

We never got the heavy snow this year, but there was enough and for that we were grateful (and it was a gorgeous day!).

Rachel’s mom came along on our fun day and as we talked I learned about her gift of organizing, which inspired me to organize my own house. I got a great start, but there’s so much more to do. That happens when you’ve lived somewhere for over 20 years. Right now, as we go through closets and drawers it looks like a disaster, but by the end of the year (hopefully sooner) we will be free of all the clutter. We are also in the middle of some home projects, so that’s slowing the organization down. One day at a time. Now, back to Rachel:).

As we headed back we stopped at another cool spot with one more outfit. Rachel and her mom, Loire were so awesome to hang out with!!

I have the best experiences with my clients! Thank you for choosing me to take your senior portraits Rachel!

Hailey is a 2015 Bellarmine Prep senior and she loves her school, so that’s where we had her shoot.  It was a perfect place for her!:)

Girl Senior Bellarmine Prep Tacoma Photographer Hailey_0001.jpg

She has a fun quirky personality that she fully embraces and we wanted to make sure that stood out. She’s full of joy and happiness and I love that all that shows through in every image.

Yep, she has a “pet” gnome.  Actually, she just loves gnomes in general!

Girl Senior Bellarmine Prep Tacoma Photographer Hailey_0006.jpg

And she loves her books, just a sampling of her favorite author!

It’s a funny thing about this spot at Bellarmine. You really can’t see the cross until you are back from it and really look. It didn’t even pop out at me until I took the shot and looked at the back of the camera.

Hailey is on ASB and the newspaper. She is in a marine chemistry program, but prefers reading to chemistry. She plans on studying English in college.

I’ll end with a traditional Bellarmine Prep outfit that many of the girls make each year and wear to the games to support their team!  A LOT of work goes into these jumpsuits!
