Meet Ellie Rose! I had the honor of recently taking her Senior Portraits and you can see how absolutely stunning she is! A senior at Highland and among the top of her class, Ellie Rose has a passion for music and helping others! She and my Ella Rose are kindred spirits in so many ways and were able to connect in person for the first time recently. When Ella was writing an essay on a peer she admired, she chose Ellie and here is what she said:

"Ellie Rose Killinger is a woman just around my age, who suffers from childhood Lupus. She has suffered through a sad diagnosis, traumatic hospital visits, unsuccessful chemotherapy treatments, and more - but has still found her way toward cheerfulness and inspiration. Ellie first caught my attention when at the start of COVID-19, I saw her perform a song at a music therapy program where I had interned. She had red hair, just like me, and our names were almost exactly the same - but it was because her song was so encouraging and so hopeful that I just had to get to know her better.

Ellie has started her own foundation, called Ellie Rose Strong. It honors fellow children and teens who suffer from lupus. Ellie designs and sells t-shirts inspired by those children, and then donates the funds to their families’ charities of choice. She has created something beautiful out of something challenging - and every day she inspires others to do the same.
I’m in awe of Ellie’s creativity, positivity, and determination. She has done so much to better the lives of the people around her, and she uses music to uplift others as well. She’s shown me what’s possible when you have a combination of courage and compassion."- Ella Reidway

Westfield Highschool Senior, Caroline M. is an exceptional young woman who I have had the honor of knowing since she was a little girl. Now on the cusp of 18, she the first student with special needs to be inducted into the National Honor Society at Westfield HS! Not only does she have a 4.0 GPA, but is a 4 year chorus member and a participant in Bulldog Buddies (like Best Buddies). As she nears graduation, Caroline is getting closer to her lifelong dream of working with animals by working at Pender Vet through her Career Prep class. Caroline, is one of the kindest, sweetest, music loving young women I know and I'm so proud to have a front row seat to all of her accomplishments!

Senior Ethan P. brought his inner Clark Kent to our photoshoot! It's been amazing to see this guy mature into an amazing young man! Ethan is an accomplished Eagle Scout, an awesome actor, a total brainiac having already started college classes. He is also, the kindest, sweetest person you can ever imagine meeting. He is always ready with a smile! He has a new special love, his puppy Bella who his family recently adopted. Congrats on all of your accomplishments E!

My friend Debra Bragg is so accomplished that there isn’t enough space here to list all that she does with her amazing career. She is a beautiful person inside and out.

If you think a glamorous photoshoot is only for highschool seniors you’re wrong! Take time to celebrate yourself and don’t wait until you think you’ll look “just right.” Embrace the now! Like my friend Beth Green Tweddle always says: “Make it the Year of Go!” Say yes, try something new!

This is one of my dearest friends, Beth Tweddle. She is an inspiration, a self-made woman, a positive light, and a force for good. She has a way of always looking at the bright side, even when things are hard and the world seems dim. Beth cares deeply about people and helping others achieve their best. If you need an answer, she ALWAYS has a solution. She never stays stagnant, and is always planning her next adventure. This week she celebrated her 60th birthday- she calls it Beth 6.0! Together we planned and thought about what 6.0 would look like and these photos are the result of that collaboration!

She is beautiful in more ways than one and to have the opportunity to celebrate her in these images was an honor. Because so much of life is unglamorous, Beth and I thought it was important, especially as women, to celebrate ourselves, take time out to do something that is just for YOU- show the world that this is not the end, but a new beginning. In fact, every day, at every age is a new beginning. And as I embark on a milestone birthday myself in a few weeks—Beth gives me the courage to not be mired down about getting older, but to embrace the person I am today and all of the lessons life has taught me thus far. Here’s to an other decade Beth, and to a continuation of a friendship that was meant to be.

All in the same day, this awesome group of models portrayed two times periods--Last week, I posted 1970s, and now the 1940s.

What story do these images tell?

Almost exactly a year ago this weekend on a 60 degree day in January, I gathered a group of Ella's friends for a "Decades" inspired photoshoot. We went shopping/thrifting for the right clothes and also used what we had, styled hair and makeup. I used a filter to reflect the time period. The models came up with their own "band name" “The Swiss Missiles” and images for what would be the album covers.

Earlier in the day we shot a series of scenes from the 1940s- which will be uploaded in a subsequent post.

It was so amazing to let history inspire us artistically. Not to mention, we had a whole lotta fun! Looking forward to when we can do this again safely and without masks.

The Lackey sisters are a joy to photograph because they have such a wonderful connection with each other! Though they are apart while one is graduating from college and the other from a masters degree program, their closeness is undeniable. The youngest, Victoria, only has to make a hint of a funny face and her older sister Charlotte is full of giggles. Seriously, I had a smile on my face the whole time!

There is so much to say about this beautiful family of dear friends. Danielle and Simon's story is known well by those of us in their circle and it is a story of perseverance, hope, faith and love.Years of wanting to have a child, waiting, hoping, praying finally came to fruition with the adoption of the most adorable baby you've ever seen. Even though she is only a few months old, Siobhan is curious, silly, responsive to the world around her, but most of all to the voices of her parents, who have been waiting for this miracle baby to pour their love into. Seeing them together filled my heart with joy and being able to capture these moments for them was an honor.
