After shooting his big brother’s senior photos two years before, I was excited to have the opportunity to capture Josh, too! Quiet and creative, this young man is full of surprises. I loved hearing about Comic-Con and his latest costume designs. (And check out those Dr Who sneaks. He painted them himself!) I can’t wait to see what God has in store for Josh’s future!


With just a small window on the same continent before she went off to college, it was a challenge to pull off Karis’ senior shoot. When I saw that the props she brought along were books and mugs, I was delighted. A kindred spirit! We chatted about literature and coffee and life between two cultures. Her mom and her best friend tagged along to help with hair and wardrobe changes, and I could sense their joy-tinged-sorrow as they celebrated Karis and prepared to say farewells. This endearing young lady has a bright future ahead of her, with loving friends and family cheering her on!


Meet my precious sister-in-law, Karen! She’s the little sister I never had growing up. She’s been a champ to pose for a lot of shots over the years, but this shoot was special to commemorate her senior year of high school. She’s now an adult with a degree in business and big plans of her own, but I had to share just a few of these for old times’ sake. I love you, Karen!


When I first met Ben, he really impressed me because of the way he entertained our little boys so we could eat lunch in peace and enjoy an adult conversation. That first impression proved to be true of his character! Kind and thoughtful, Ben is a bright young man who understands his God-given talents and how to use them to bless others. What a privilege to capture him in this season of his life!
