We get a lot of requests to help people update their photos for online dating sites, and social networking sites like facebook, etc.  Pictured below is Theresa.  Theresa is a beautiful, charming, wonderful woman, and she is always fun to photograph.  Theresa chose outdoor portraits, so we did her shoot in a local park, on a beautiful summer day.  Here are some of my faves from her shoot:

I have enjoyed photographing Ally’s family for several years, and watching her and her siblings grow up.  Ally is as sweet and beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.  She was a joy to photograph.  Here are a few of my faves from Ally’s senior photo shoot:  am4
