How Many People Get to Graduate High School On Their Birthday?

How many people get to graduate high school ON their birthday?  THIS GIRL does!  This girl is my daughter, Tianna Hemeyer.  So I get to take a moment and brag about my little girl.  Tianna is my third child (her older brother and sister, twins, Mason and Sierra graduated two years ago.)  Tianna is a one-of-a-kind.  I can truly say she is my dearest friend. She was born happy!  She is so silly, and joyful and full of life, and her laugh is infectious.  To know her is to love her.  It has been such a blessing to be her mom.  Here are Tianna’s Senior Portraits: For ten years Tianna was the baby of our family.  And then, through a total miracle I found out I was pregnant and our beautiful bonus baby, Bella, was born. From the minute Bella arrived Tianna was like a little mother to her.  These two are as close as can be. So of course Bella was not going to let us do Tianna’s senior portraits without her!Tianna has been searching for her passion her whole life.  She has tried swimming, diving, violin, flute, piano, ballet, hip hop and many others along the way.  But nothing ever stuck for her.  Then last year, during her junior year she took a jewelry making class and a passion was ignited!  She has found a true talent and has really enjoyed the process of designing and then creating her own jewelry.  Here she is, in true Tianna fashion, sporting her MVT Jewelers shirt.  And below are just a few of her beautiful pieces. And to end this Tianna tribute, here are a few shots from her senior Prom a couple of weeks ago.

Congratulations on your high school graduation sweet girl!  And happy 18th birthday.  You may feel like an adult now, but you will always be my little girl.  I love you with all my heart!  Thanks for making me a mom!

I have known these cute twins since they were in early elementary school.  They have been good friends of my daughter, Tianna, and were also our neighbors  for many years.  It has been so fun to watch them grow up, so of course, I was honored when they called to have me do their senior portraits.  Jennifer plans to enter the military after graduation and Natalie is looking at becoming a nanny.  I just love these two!  Congratulations on Graduation next month girls!

2015 Senior: Torrey Pine

I love when my clients give me referrals, and I was given two referrals for this gorgeous girl!  Torrey called me because she loved my work with her two cousins for their senior portraits (you can see them here and here). I could tell from our first conversation that this girl was going to be tons of fun and full of spunk.  We had a great time capturing her personality on our senior session.  And at the end of the shoot she gave me the biggest compliment of all by giving me a huge hug and saying, “That was so much fun!”  Thanks Torrey for such a great session and congratulations on your graduation!

Emily–High School Senior 2015

I met Emily last year while doing her family portraits for the holidays.  I was thrilled when she called to have me shoot her senior portraits. Emily chose the beautiful backdrop of Red Mountain Ranch for her senior portraits: I’ll give you one guess where Emily is heading off to school next year. . . You guessed it, Northern Arizona University (NAU) in Flagstaff, Arizona. Emily is also an avid reader.  Here she is with a few of her favorite reads.Emily also loves to travel.  She has traveled all over as a student ambassador.  Here she is with a few of her favorite souvenirs from her many travels:

Schild Family 2015: Baby Girl Number Five!

I just love this sweet family.  They used to be neighbors of ours and I have had the opportunity to work along side them and their girls at church, and to photograph them many times (you can see some of their old shoots here, here and here.) This month they added baby girl number five to their family.  We decided to do their portraits in the comfort of their own home and now this is one of my favorite newborn shoots ever.  Take a look at their cuteness right here:
