Rebekah {senior 2010}


Yes, I am no longer doing portrait sessions…I have ‘quit’ that side of photography for the time being.

Yes, if you want to finance a large in-ground pool in my backyard, I will be happy to do whatever session you want.

Yes, you will be seeing a few portrait sessions on the blog in the coming weeks….but none of them are financing my dream of a pool.

Yes, this post is a portrait session.

Yes, I wish there was an easy way for me to trade hair with her. Jealous.

Yes, I LOVED shooting Rebekah’s senior pictures. It was fun to be ‘back in the game’ for an evening. It was wonderful not to be chasing a moving subject.  She is a talented photographer – which made me nervous! Rebekah wanted a field that still had high grass. I thought, “we haven’t mowed in a year a while.” So we did the session around our house and our neighbors. It was a perfect evening. This is a LONG post. I am so used to my doing pictures of kids that I had a terribly hard time narrowing down my favorite pictures to share here…and there are still so many more!

Thank you Rebekah for spending the evening with me. It was my honor. You are stunning.

  • Kristin @ Domestic Ease - Just stumbled upon your blog–it is utterly L*O*V*E*L*Y!! I will be bookmarking it–your photos are terrific! I am in Fort Worth, and am a yearbook adviser by day ( editor by night!), and if we were a bit closer I would send my students up to you for their senior portraits!

    Keep up the inspiring work–I’m off to read more of your blog! 😉


  • Kristin @ Domestic Ease - By the way–I am redoing my daughter’s room this summer and your kids’ rooms are GREAT inspiration!!! Beautiful! 😉

  • Hollie - I love the fact that her necklace is also reflected in the actual balloons. Would she be willing to say where she bought the necklace? I’d love to purchase that for my daughter 🙂 thanks!

  • Jeannette Swan - Absolutely Gorgeous!

  • Jeannette Swan - I meant to ask – what time of evening was this?

  • Rebekah Jean - Thanks so much Ashley!! I love them! You are incredible as usual…and your field was perfect! I had a great time and it was a great honor to watch you work…even if I had to be in front of the camera! 🙂

    The necklace is from Etsy ( but I don’t know if she’s making the necklace any more. I got it around Christmas so it’s been a while.

  • stylefyles - these photos are beautiful.

  • Heather - wow! she is stunning. and your photos are really swell, too. 🙂

  • lorae - Are you kidding me!?! Aren’t Senior pictures supposed to be awkward and something you want to hide afterwards? Usually done by a grumpy man that would rather be having his nose hairs plucked than taking Sr. photos. Also to be done in an old smelly gym and EVERYONE wearing the same sweaty, smelly, cap and gown? No, maybe that was just mine. Excuse me while my green with envy self gnaws on some more sour grapes over here:).

  • patti - stunning!

  • Allison - Beautiful Lady, Beautiful Photos

  • becca g - no wonder you had a hard time narrowing them down! love the balloons!

  • Carrie - Beautiful! You know the day you start back to taking pics…. you better call. I’ll ask Scott about the pool. You never know!!

  • Melissa - LOVE these photos! Beautiful work, beautiful girl, and beautiful camera! I’m got a few oldies on display in my family room. 🙂 Great job on the shoot! 🙂

  • lifeologia - Beautiful photoshoot as always! I want to get back to photography so bad when I look at your photos – I also ‘quit’ for the time being…. for health reasons though in my case. You are such an inspiration.

  • Yanet - What beautiful eyes!!

  • jeanne - What an inspiration she is to my daughter who’ll be a sophomore this year. I think her biggest want, besides some school clothes right this minute, is a nice camera. She loves photography. I think she will really enjoy this post and this young ladie’s website.

  • Amie - Mmm mmm mmm…..
