2014 SGH Models, Kendra and Tianna were part of a 1920s stylized shoot. It was all about taking the 1920s idea and simplifying it so the focus was on the beautiful girls. The backgrounds are handmade and their amazing hair and makeup was done by Loni Wilson and Erica Foit.

Prom dresses can be just like wedding dresses…you wear them once and then they end up in the closet forever. After talking to several of the 2014 SGH Models, we decided to get together and do a fun prom shoot. A bunch of them showed up, did their hair and makeup and we headed out to try and beat the storm that was headed our way. We weren’t super successful at missing the rain so we found an abandoned gas station that was covered while it poured. The girls didn’t care at all that it was raining and made it all look fabulous!
I just adore all of these girls! So looking forward to getting to know them better!

Phebe and her friends, Abby and Chelsey, are just the right kind of goofy mixed in with awesome friendship. These girls were giggling the whole time and just wait till you see some of their “creative” family-type shots.
Meet Abby, Phebe and Chelsey!
Here are the girls takes on the awkward family photos. Hilarious!
Friends provide the most genuine laughter you can ask for!

Katie gathered some of her good friends and we walked around grabbing some fun photos of all of them together. I love the way high school girls laugh with each other and all of the inside jokes they have. It’s brilliant!
Time to meet these ladies. Jessica, Rachel & Rachel, Katie and Esther.
Katie was first up for some individual photos.
Just love all the summery outfits they picked out.
A favorite photo!
Here was their time to work it for the camera.

Claire decided to bring along some of her friends from her soccer team for her 2013 Model Friends Session! What a fun idea! We attempted to beat a storm coming in and just got a little wet at the end. The girls were such great sports and laughed a ton.
Meet Michelle, Hannah, Becka, Mackenzie, Claire and Sarah.
Claire showing the girls how to work it for the camera.
The girls brought along frames for each of them to use.
How cute is this photo?
I love Sarah’s hair color.
Becka and her braids!
What an adorable personality.
There was some serious laughing.
Along with the frames, they brought books to do these photos.
This is their album cover.

Sara and Abby are having their Open House together and wanted to get some photos taken for their invites. You’ve seen Abby here on the blog before. It was super chilly that evening so we ran around taking as many photos as we could before we froze.
Meet Sara and Abby!
The laughter between friends is just the best!
You two are beautiful!
This cracked me up!

2013 Such Great Heights Model Kelly brought along some friends on a rainy day for a friends session. We jumped inside and made the best of the rainy day. These girls are a hoot and we were all laughing it up!
Here are the beautiful girls – Grace, Caroline, Ellie, Kelly, Haley, Rachel and Tara
We made Kelly go first since she’s done the whole “being photographed” thing a few times with me!
Next up is Grace. She knows how to have fun and I love that about her.
Meet Haley. Another girl that knows how to have fun and looks like she just stepped out of a J.Crew catalog.
Rachel! Wouldn’t you love to have Rachel’s hair color? She is such a doll!
Next up is Ellie! I photographed Ellie awhile ago when her sister graduated. Can’t believe she is going to be a senior now!
Caroline is next and has the best smile and beautiful eyes!
And last but not least is Miss Tara. She was so absolutely natural in front of the camera.
A couple more shots of the girls. This is their “serious” photo.
The seriousness didn’t last for long.
Thanks girls for spending your afternoon with me! You were a blast!

Oh how I love this group of girls! There were lots of giggles and fun as they took some photos together before they graduate. They first sported their college T-Shirts and then changed into super cute sundresses. Thank you all for letting me capture your friendships!
Meet Kristina, Emily, Alli, Chelsea and Farren!
Class of 2012!
Posing it up.
Love these next two photos.
