Beautiful or Average?

We all make this choice everyday, whether we realize it or not.

Do we choose to see ourselves as beautiful or average?

What will you choose today?

This video by Dove , shows how many beautiful women choose “Average.” 

Enough said. Watch the video, if you haven’t already. It made me stop and think.

“She expresses beauty simply in who she is…it is her essence.” from Captivating, by Eldredge

This is a video that Dove produced for part of their recent ad campaign.

As a photographer of high school seniors, I shared this video because I want each senior that

I photograph to know that they are valuable and beautiful in their own unique way.

Jordan, Senior 2015

Graduate of Sequatchie County High School

What a great time we had with Jordan and his family, during his senior photo shoot!

Our shoot location was at a lovely farm location near Chattanooga.

We had such a beautiful day with some gorgeous light and landscape.

Jordan was such an all-around awesome guy to work with, and his family was the same.

They were all so down-to-earth and helpful. They wanted to make sure to get pics with a vintage tractor.

Of course, Jordan had to include his truck…the vintage green was so perfect!

They also wanted to have a barn and farmland for the background.

We got it all in one location, so we could not have had a more positive and memorable experience!

Thank you, Jordan! Best wishes on all your future plans!

Hope you enjoy viewing a few of my favorite images from the photo shoot.

Don’t forget to leave some love for the handsome senior!

Senior 2015

Chattanooga Christian School

Madison is such a natural beauty inside and out!

She is very versatile and also enjoys getting her glam on, so I knew we were going to have lots

of fun with her senior photo session. We began her casual shots with some lovely light in a natural area.

I think she had more fun than we did, because she got to play in the leaves!

Next, her uncle brought his awesome restored truck to help us with a bit of vintage drama.

It was perfect! And she looked amazing in her red and blue chevron dress!

 We even had some time left for more sunset shots with the beautiful fall background.

We had such a great time with Madison and her mom and relatives!

Hope you enjoy seeing a few our favorite images from her session.

Don’t forget to leave her some love in the comments or likes!

Blessings in all your many future endeavors, Madison!

    Maddie, From the time you were a little girl, until now, a beautiful young woman, you have been a wonder and a delight to me. I am so proud of you for many reasons, especially your love for the Lord and your strong faith. You stick to your Christian values and it shows in your gentle ways and your compassion for others. People may not know this, but you are very funny too. I couldn’t ask for a better granddaughter, cause I already have the best. Your determination will help you succeed in everything you do. Can’t believe it graduation time. Seems like yesterday we were in Panama City Beach and you were Power Puff Girl saving me from the sharks.lol. What wonderful memories I have of you and wouldn’t change a thing. I love you more than you could ever imagine. I am so glad God chose you to be my granddaughter. I love you, Grammy.ReplyCancel

Senior, Class of 2015

Silverdale Baptist Academy

Meet the naturally joyful, caring, and kind, Tiffany.

I love her smile, and her joy is contagious!

Tiffany’s main goal for her senior photo session was to just be herself.

So that is what we aimed for…images that would make her personality shine.

We began in a local field and tree area where she wore her favorite prom dress.

Boy, did we make some fun memories there!

Then we went to another location for a more casual feel.

We came back to our field at sunset for some amazing light-filled images.

It was a bit chilly, but Tiffany was a trooper…and when the soft breeze

blew through her hair and dress, it was so pretty!

Tiffany’s inner beauty sparkles and shines just like her outer beauty.

It is my hope that these images accomplished Tiffany’s goal.

Tiffany is on her way to attend college at Covenant University in the fall.

Wishing you all the best on your new journey, Tiffany!

Cheyenne, 2015 Senior

Sequatchie County High

Senior Session Audrey Hepburn Style

This senior session will have to rank up there with my all time favorites.

First, because the Audrey Hepburn look is just pure classic beauty, in my book.

Second, because this young lady portrayed Hepburn’s style so well, even with the long blonde hair…

while staying true to herself. She was totally on board with going with this styled theme,

which was good for my creative soul. Btw, she and her mom are huge Hepburn fans!

Third, because her images were featured on the international known senior blog, Seniorologie.

Cheyenne has clear vision for her future and stands firm in her beliefs and values.

Thank you for allowing me to work with you, Cheyenne. It was my pleasure!

And thank you to her mom, who was a great assistant with hair and wardrobe.

Could not have done it without you girls!
