As photographers, we crave to photograph things that are real, that are raw, and that inspire. You hope that the subject in front of you can fully trust you, and allow a freedom to create and dig deep. Hunter gave me that gift last spring as I took his senior pictures. His personality and presence allowed me to create, and capture his uniqueness, his vibrance and contagious personality. Hunter’s session has been a favorite of mine since the moment I loaded the pictures to my computer, and digested what happened during my time with him. It set a new fire in me. It inspired me. It gave life to me. In my short amount of time with hunter, I knew that he was confident in his uniqueness, he was bold in his individuality, and he had courage to truly embrace and be “Hunter”. The hunter God created him to be. In my short amount of time with him, unknowingly, he gave me a gift that I will never forget. The gift of inspiration and creativity, and the desire to embrace my own uniqueness. Hunter graduated from Floydada this past Spring 2014, and was attending his first semester of UT this fall. I learned this morning that hunter was in a terrible accident last week, and had passed away. I think I am still in complete shock, but am very aware that my heart is broken by this news. After I found out I contacted his precious mom, Sandra, and was given permission to keep his photos up to honor and remember what an extraordinary person he is. She responded that she knew he was special, but was blown away by all the people he’s touched. It is clear, he has made a mark on many lives including my own. I saw on Hunter’s Facebook page a prayer his dad read at his rosary:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.
St. Francis

I believe that prayer was answered in the way Hunter lived out his life. Hunter, you were a gift to this world. Thank you for making a mark in my life, and giving me a gift during our time together that I will forever remember and be grateful for. From one creative to another, thank you. May we all strive to live life fully, love people deeply, and be an instrument in the Lords hands. Here is to you, Hunter. Here is to a life that will never be forgotten.

Happy 1st day of school to everyone out there!! I hope this year is everyone’s best year yet :).  I am looking forward t0 and already loving photographing this year’s seniors. Here’s a little bit of my seasonal advice on when to have pictures taken! It’s NEVER to early to start. For those who are looking to get their pictures taken when it is green and beautiful outside, tadalafil right now is the PERFECT time!! The weather is beautiful, pharm the wind is tamed, and the ground is lush and green. I encourage you not to wait for the spring to roll around as it takes sometimes until late April to even really start to greening up. Some of the other many benefits of having your pictures taken right now include:

1. You can use your pictures throughout the year for special events, homecoming, yearbooks, etc.

2. Did I mention the weather is really nice, and everything is really green right now?

3. You can do a summer/spring look from now all the way until the beginning to mid-October!

4. When October-December hits you can change it up and incorporate boots, scarves, and everything else we love about fall!

5. You will have your pictures taken before the crazy of Spring hits & your parents will love themselves for it!

6. You will have plenty of time to have custom graduation announcements made, and the process is guaranteed to be stress free.

7. There’s a lot of costs for parents at the end of senior year (college deposits, graduation party’s, gifts, new outfits for parties, etc.). It’s nice to space out your investments!

Those are just my two cents about why taking your senior pictures sooner rather than later is a fabulous idea. 😉

With all of that being said, take a look at this GORG little lady who is a senior at Frenship High School this year! We took advantage of the beautiful green landscape, and will be switching it up another look in the fall! I love this idea as it gives you variety, a chance to wear your hair differently, and showcase your style in various ways.
