These are the personal sessions of my clients that have allowed me to share some of their session highlights and information about them!

Senior High School Student: Jei Valle-Riestra

I’ve known the Valle-Riestra family for 13 years. I had the pleasure of taking Jei’s Senior Photos. I always think it’s fun to keep some memories to look back on in questionnaires.

Good luck in your future endeavors!

From Jei:

I’m a senior at Pleasant Valley High School. I participate in pretty much everything art related – theatre productions, band, choir, and AP studio art. Art is my passion and I intend on going into animation for a career, but writing will always be my first love. I use my art to tell stories, for which I draw inspiration from video games, movies, comics, books, and other media.
Favorite Subject: biology and art
Accomplishments: section leader in band for 2 years, costume head for 4 theatre productions, stage manager for Radium Girls
College Plans/Future Goals: major in animation at Pacific Northwest College of Art and then make my own cartoon
Activities: Band, choir, theatre, and AP art
Dream Job: creator of a popular cartoon (something like Adventure Time)
Hobbies: gaming, writing, drawing, watching movies and shows, and listening to podcasts
Unusual Talent: making really, really weird voices and also being freakishly silent
Favorite Fictional Character: you’re asking a nerdy teenager who their favorite character is? That’s like asking an unbiased parent to name their favorite child.
Favorite Place on Earth: anywhere with a lot of trees and few people
Favorite Band/Artist/Song: The Cure, Weezer, and Oingo Boingo
3 Things I Can’t Live Without: my sketchbook, my art supplies, and my pets
My Friends Would Describe Me As: an absolute goober and madman
My Favorite Part of Senior Pictures: getting to look at pretty flowers and greenery
High School Memories: bringing Sweeney Todd to International Thes Fest and getting slapped with paint covered hands by one of my best friends

 

Mallory J

On 7/26/16 I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful model Mallory J. She needed a small urban set for a magazine. So we did a VERY quick session at the court in the “Village of East Davenport.” I hope one of our photos gets picked to be featured in the magazine! Let me know how it goes Mallory!

Amber Hendricks part 2

Once again I had the pleasure of working with the lovely and talented Ms. Hendricks! We decided on an outdoor session this time. Downtown Davenport offers some amazing views to showcase such a gorgeous woman! Here are some of the results from our photo session.

 

 

She’s now part of KMT.

KMT is an agency, management, and training facility for models, singers, dancers, and actors seeking growth and development for a thriving career in their passion. KMT eagerly works on behalf of their clients to make sure they get the best placement for their level of work.

The Larson Family

The Family Next Door

When I was just a sweet little teen girl, a new family moved next door to my dad’s house. While my dad was building on his back deck my curious mind kept checking over the fence to the hustle and bustle of the new family moving in. I remember my excitement when they had kids!!! Two awesome boys to be exact! One was just a year older than me and the other just 3 years behind. I finally got to meet them after some time. We all became great friends and have shared years of adventures. While our lives have sent us on many different paths, occasionally we cross paths and it’s always fun! I had the pleasure of photographing their family last weekend. Here’s a few of the spectacular portraits I got!

Krys – Boudoir Client

Recently I had a session with a very lovely new client. She told me about some struggles she had with health issues and weight loss. She wanted to see herself the way others did, and a way to feel beautiful. I said have no worries, you came to the right place! We had a fantastic time and her images came out absolutely gorgeous!!!! I had the privilege to get an interview from her as well as her product reveal. Check out below for the insight!

Photo A Day Social Experiment

Just started a #PhotoADay social experiment to see how easy it is to meet new people and take a simple portrait. Brittany and her son teamed up to do a Facebook Live video with Portrait Photography. Don’t mind the cameraman….he’s only 8!!!! The video includes some snippets from the Facebook Live videos with their accompanying portraits. Thanks to our brave models that gladly participated in this social experiment! And I hope you like your portraits!

Stay tuned for more!!!
