Derek is 1!

I was told little Derek was a bit camera shy before our shoot at Hoopes Park. His big sister Erica was only too happy to spill out the smiles for the camera. Perhaps she, Mom and Dad and all the wide open space to practice his toddling was enough distraction to help him forget I was even there! So cute!

Ellen 2011

There were so many great places to photograph for Ellen's senior session, and all those places were right in her own backyard! I think the giant, ancient willow tree (Wendy's, Ellen's mom's, excellent suggestion) was so cool because of the texture of the old bark. But, I loved using the barn wood for a backdrop. It was Ellen and her beautiful smile, though, that made it all come together into gorgeousness.
