:: Portfolio :: Shawn :: {Portrait Photography}

We snapped a few quick portraits for Shawn–he’s an amazing realtor!  If you’re looking for a great realtor to help you find your dream home, look him up.  Ace is sometimes one of the friendly faces you meet at their office, so we made sure to snap a few with him (and his cute little floppy tongue).  Too often “head shots” or professional portraits end up looking a little…. stuffy!  I love capturing people in beautiful natural light in their element.  Can you guess which portrait came after the queue “I want to sell YOU a house!”? A little on the nose, but still a nice shot.  🙂

:: Portfolio :: Hoover Family Portraits {Family Portrait Photography}

I don’t think I’ve found myself laughing and smiling through a session as much as I did with the Hoovers.  They are such a sweet family and I love that they want their pets included in their family photos.  I am always up for that challenge.  What better setting than with a gorgeous vintage John Deere?!  “It’s been SO LONG since we’ve taken family photos professionally.” I hear this alllll the time, so it is always such a joy to capture family portraits.  You can’t see me, but I unintentionally had joined in on the plaid love.  I love the way these turned out.  Enjoy!

:: Portfolio :: Cole :: {Senior Portraits}

I had the pleasure of spending a late afternoon with the Hoovers soaking up sunshine and a perfect little breeze while we captured Cole’s Senior Portraits, along with a few other sets of portraits (might as well!  I love when we can.), which I’ll share soon.  I was so grateful to hear from Mindy, as I took her older son, Chase‘s portraits a few years ago.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather.  Or cuter dogs… you’ll see what I mean… Enjoy!

Portfolio :: Senior Portraits :: Andrew

Andrew was referred to me by a classmate, Danelle.  You may recall her sessions from recent updates I shared.  My primary form of advertising is word of mouth and I am grateful for every referral!

The weather Saturday was iffy at first–woke up to lots of fog!  I was nervous!  But I took a deep breath and waited patiently and sure enough by the time we were scheduled to meet the misty/foggy weather was gone and replaced by beautiful sunshine and light breezes.  Perfect weather for an outdoor session!  Andrew had scoped out some locations ahead of time (which I always appreciate when I’m going somewhere new).  He has a great eye!La Belle Estelle Photography-2 La Belle Estelle Photography BW-57 La Belle Estelle Photography-81 La Belle Estelle Photography BW-23La Belle Estelle Photography-42

This last image caught my eye when I was sorting and editing the photos.  I think it’s my favorite from the session.  If you’re wondering about his black fedora, maybe this line will give you a hint about the story behind the hat: “I am the one who knocks!”

Thank you, Andrew, for welcoming me into your home and neighborhood to take your portraits.  I hope you love them!

Portfolio :: Senior Portraits :: Danelle :: Part One

Danelle saw my photos and heard about me through word of mouth, which, IMHO is the best advertising and the greatest compliment you can get!  Her family has a beautiful farm and we had a blast roaming around the fields taking her photos.  I forgot my shoes, so I completed the whole session in my flip flops and went home with a full heart and dirty feet.  I am so excited to share some sneak peeks with you from this session.  As always, I am having a really hard time narrowing this down to just a few, so forgive me and indulge me.  This is part one of a four part series…
