Froctober: A Month of Dresses

Every girl has fun in the dressing room trying on “frocs” in all colors, shapes, and sizes.

This Ruche video is a cute take on how to take it up a notch with the latest dress styles.

You can go here to see their latest lookbooks and shop their lovely clothing.

I love the mix of color, texture and layering going on here that can really add that extra zing to your outfit.

Enjoy! Maybe you will find something to wear in your next photo shoot with Full Life Photography!

Grafitti Adventure

Phil Raffa, Senior, Grace Academy, Class of 2015

I can’t think of anything but over-the-top nice things to say about this senior,

so I will start by sharing what Phil thinks others might say about him.

“If you ask my friends, they might say that I’m Italian, crazy, a little impatient, and ready for adventure.”

Sounds a little on the humble side to me, but I won’t argue that he seems to have a good mix of focus and fun.

Phil says he loves the urban look, which is why he took us to this awesome grafitti area downtown for part of his photo shoot.

This location fit him perfectly, since he says one of his biggest pet peeves is “lack of civilization.”

“The only time you will find me in the woods is when I’m mountain biking.”

Music, photography, boating, and spending time with family are a few of his other favorite pasttimes.

Phil plans to attend college with an interest in business and cinematography.

Looking forward to hearing more about the adventures of Phil Raffa!

(Hope you enjoy these favorites from part of his senior portrait session. You can find more here.).

Night Shoot

This was my first night shoot in this setting without street lights nearby.

I have done night shoots when we had a bit of lamp light, but never this dark.

So it was a bit tricky for me, but we got a few cool shots.

Can’t wait to try another!

Thank you to my awesome model,

Phil, Senior, Class of 2015, Grace Academy.

Senior, Class of 2015: Morgan Mettendorf

Grace Baptist Academy

What can I say about this awesome Senior?

First of all, I will say that I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet and photograph this young lady.

Morgan has a classy sort of sweetness that exudes calmness and care.

She is happy to take charge when needed, but is also happy to follow the lead whenever needed.

Such a gentle but strong spirit will take her far in life.

She has the focus, conscientiousness, and determination to keep her head under many circumstances.

I will be looking forward to hearing more about the bright future of Morgan, as she attends college in the fall of 2015.

We had a bunch of fun shooting in this lovely wildflower field! Thanks to her mom for securing this location!

I loved shooting at sunset with the golden glow from the beautiful light! Hope you enjoy the images!

Morgan’s favorite Bible verse sums up her outlook on life:

“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future,” Proverbs 31:25
