For Book Lovers

Announcing special edition pop-up shoots with one-of-a-kind looks that I will create using different themes. These will each be available for a limited time before the look completely changes. And the best part? These looks will fit anyone! Since my photographs are taken from a very specific angle, I make my costumes clamp-able, cinch-able, and let-out-able....and you won't even be able to tell in the final images. Saturday, February 23rd: This first one is for booklovers. I call this look "Anne with an E". :) It's made out of upcycled thrift items (shower curtain, tablecloths), a hat I bought the day after Halloween, and a copy of the book "Anne of Green Gables". Yes---those ruffles are made out of pages! I had both my niece and my sister model it for me.  They're both awesome. All you need is a top (although I have a few extra of those as well). $125 Includes: -fun fashion-styled shoot, with directed posing -20% off any purchase

Spotlight: Chrissy

 Model: Chrissy McMillan, wife and mother A little about Chrissy: I met my husband in high school. We've been married for 15 years, and have three young boys. I've been a cosmetologist for 15 years. Three Random Things About Chrissy: 1. I have a pumpkin carriage in my yard. 2. I love antiques. 3. I am a princess at heart. Favorite quote or phrase: "A dream is a wish your heart makes" Someone who has had an impact on her life: My three amazing boys that have shown me that I can love more deeply than imaginable. Advice you would give to your younger self: Take care of your health and your body. Put down that candy bar!!! A few of my favorite images from Chrissy's shoot. It's funny, because I had 100+ people sign up to be models for me (thank you, everyone!!!). I chose her on the basis that she was one of the very, very few who had put down "very long hair" on the hair-length question. I was amazed once I start

Goals

2018 was such a fantastic year. I actually started last year with big plans of shooting more in-home newborn sessions, and had an extensive women's portraiture project written out. I keep my goals and ideas in my Audrey Hepburn notebook that my sweet friend Melissa Prout gave me after our "starlet challenge" shoot. It's fun to look back at what I wrote down this time last year. Things have gone in a different direction, and it's so much better than I imagined! I've met so many wonderful people, and I've been able to venture out a bit more with my work. I am still doing primarily headshots and family portraiture this year. I now second-shoot weddings as well with Cheyenne Wehrwein. She is incredible, and we travel all over the state to serve wedding couples. Check out her website here:  Weddings by Cheyenne For newborn/baby photography I am always more than happy to refer new parents to Melissa (Prout Portrait Studio in Coleman). She has undergone tr
