Maddie’s Senior Portraits & Where the heck did this Summer go?

I have so much to say about this beautiful girl right here, my girl Maddie was a complete rock star at her session! From the moment I met her she was full of joy and just a ball of bubbly positive energy. And you know what? I ABSOLUTELY loved it! If you know me, you know that I have likely never met a stranger in my life and likely when I am retired I will thoroughly enjoy being a Wal-Mart greeter. The power of positivity and a good hello are never something I take for granted. And Maddie was a direct replicate of that same energy, so you can only imagine the comical items we laughed during our time together at her session out on the ranch.

Guys, this was taken within MINUTES of starting up the camera. Isn’t she just downright gorgeous?!!

Okay besides the fact that Maddie’s energy is beyond contagious and she is just the sweetest soul, have you guys noticed it’s already time to start thinking about Senior Portraits for 2019 Seniors? #Holdthephone and #Wheredidsummergo? Also can you believe that the Fall Decor is officially rolled out!

Yes Mam!

And I think next week pumpkin spice lattes…. well take that back, Pumpkin Spice everything is going to be on full blast. I’m watching you Trader Joe’s & H-E-B!

It’s been a busy Summer for us here at the Farm, we took some time off to be together as a family but there has also been many hustle moments, big reason why my poor blogs have been put on the back burner. I have so many stories to share and hope to catch up soon!

But as we wait in line for the start of the Fall season and or the pumpkin spice latte at the closest Starbucks, don’t wait to start thinking of portraits for your Senior as well as portraits for your Holiday Christmas Cards. Last year I was completely booked for 2017 before mid-October that I actually had to refer folks out. Crazy, I know!

If you’re thinking about portraits, the most common question I have received lately is when should I book? And honestly, if you’re thinking about them, don’t wait too long. Portraits are booked anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months in advance.

Also since I captured this moment in late May, Maddie is now graduated and just moved into her new dorm at college. It’s been a crazy week to see my Senior gals from this past year load up and take course into the next chapter into their lives, college and adulthood. Also during the week seeing all of the sweet move-in photos on social media I also saw a TimeHop on my personal memories and it’s hard to believe that it has been 11 years since I was a Freshman at Tarleton State! 11 years?! How does time do that?

My seniors from last year were only 8 years old when I went to school, and now here they are taking their first steps on campus. Wow! Now you see what I am talking about?

Okay before I start counting on how many years before Parker starts Kindergarten, I am going to let you guys enjoy these AMAZING portraits of Maddie!

Sometimes I can’t decide black and white or color, what do you think?

Her laugh is so sweet and contagious!! I just love her!

One of my top favorites from the session! #Nailedit!

Can y’all see why I love photographing at the Ranch? It’s just a big playground for adventure and photographs out here.

Gasp. S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G!

Maddie, I am so excited for you and your dreams for the future at TAMU-SA! You’re the brightest light everywhere you go and I know you are going to accomplish so much in your time as a Jaguar! Congratulations to my past 2018 Seniors and know that I am thinking of all of you as you start this new nerve-wracking & exciting journey!! Go Jaguars! Go Road Runners! Go Aggies! Go Raiders! & Go Wildcats!

Mucho Love,

    Thank you so much!! I believe happiness and laughing is a way to not stress and believe you are going to do wonderful things because most of the time when you’re having fun and learning new things, the outcome is most likely going to be amazing. Just like how my photos came out!

"Jessicas passion for photography radiated from her soul the moment I met her. When looking for a photographer, We decided that we would call a few to get a feel for the type of people they were and if they (the photographer) would fit into what we were looking for in our wedding vendors. We saw your work, we LOVED your work, but we didn’t know you. From our first conversation up until now you made us feel like you were meant to be apart of our big day! Day of you made me feel like the prettiest bride to ever walk this planet! Your photos blew my husband (I love saying “husband”) away! You captured the uniqueness and beauty of us, our surroundings and our guest! This review, nor my “thank you”, will ever be enough to show you how grateful we are for your talent!"

"I was so lucky to have Jessica as my photographer. I am absolutely thrilled with my engagement and wedding photos. The first time I spoke to her on the phone, I immediately liked her. It was important to me for me to actually LIKE my photographer because you really do spend a lot of time with them on one of the most important days in your life. The reason it is so important to be comfortable around them is because IT WILL show in your face if you’re not. My husband and I really enjoyed our photoshoots with Jessica. It can be kinda awkward to take a lot of photos but she is so funny and goofy that she kept both of us laughing and relaxed. As for the photos, they are BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, these are the nicest pictures anyone has taken of me. The pictures are light, bright, and airy. I feel like a beautiful bride when I look at them. They are so nice in fact, that the company that made my wedding dress, Jasmine Bridal, has featured my photos several times! Jessica is also a really creative person and will find ways to make your photos look amazing. During our wedding reception, I was kinda tired after a LONG day but she had a great idea to do these romantic night time shots. I am SO GLAD I decided to do them. They are absolutely gorgeous. It’s hard to believe it's me and my husband! Like, that’s us?? She made us look SO GOOD! And really, that’s all you want. You want to love your pictures and be happy with them because they are an investment. I know that I’ll look at these photos many years from now and still enjoy them - that’s how happy I am with them."

"I can not express how much I love our maternity pictures that Jessica took for us! Not only was she patient, but she also made it super easy to relax and have fun, which in turn, ended up giving us amazing photos and memories for a lifetime time to come. Jessica is such a sweet, kind soul and is sure to provide you with years of lasting memories of your family and life's most important milestones!! Thank you Jessica."
