Portraits | Marissa | Children’s Portraits

I am ridiculously excited to share this portrait session with you today! It may just be my favorite styled session ever. I had such an amazing time developing the concept for this shoot. There’s something about fairytale mashups that I absolutely adore.

This is a modern day twist on Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood, mixed into one!

And Marissa was SO fun to work with. Seriously. I love this girl – she has my heart. There was so much laughing and creativity. So many ideas being thrown around. I had the best time with Marissa and her sisters (who were my fabulous assistants)!

And you know what I love about working with kids? They love to get into character. For reals. Tell them to pretend they’re scared and alone in the forest, and they take that direction to heart. They’ll give you everything you ask for…and more. And the end is always a giggle fit.

Can you guess where we shot this? Although it looks like a forest, we were actually in Red Rock Canyon here in Las Vegas. I LOVE when I can make a setting look different than you might imagine.

Good times, my friends. Good times. Enjoy the photos!

Sneak Peek Friday | Couples Portrait Session

My focus in portraits is on teens and children. But I do love a change of pace every now and then! I create a select number of couples and family portrait sessions each year. I love switching it up on occasion. I think it keeps me on my toes and keeps the creative juices flowing!

If you’re interested in one of these select slots, let me know. I would love to chat with you about my style and what I can offer you!

The session with this couple simply makes me smile. These two: fourteen years of marriage and four children. And they still look at each other like this. Swoon.
