52 and Fabulous! With Before & After

It doesn’t’ matter what age you are, don’t let that deter you from getting your portraits done. It was a lot of fun to take pictures of my mom. She wanted me to take a few simple pictures of her, but that’s not how I do things Lol! I did her hair and make-up. I knew what look I was going for  so I asked a seamstress friend to make the skirt, which turned out fabulous. My mom loved it and still loves it! It’s a package deal, the works! She was happy that we went big. Let’s face it, it’s fun to feel fancy occasionally!SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC

She LOVES her chickens and has since I can remember. It’s fun to incorporate ones love’s in live into portraits. I mean who doesn’t feed their chickens all glamed up Lol?!  I love juxtaposition too!SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC

It was actually raining here I was hiding under an out cropping. Thanks to the rain we had to cut the glam chicken pictures short.SONY DSC SONY DSC

My mom wanted pictures of her and my dad together. Dad wanted the cars to be part of the shots. However my dad wouldn’t take the time to go anywhere so we made due with what was available in their yard. I wanted a different location and time of day, but I am very happy with how they turned out. When we went shopping for a top for the skirt I started looking for my dad too and found the shirt, jacket and pants. I also wanted to get some chucks to complete the look, but Mom wasn’t going for it. Oh yes, I love to help others shop so if you need help finding the perfect outfit(s) I can help with that too 🙂 She is wearing my heels and jewelry. I always have jewelry on hand for every shoot just in case I have the perfect accessory to complete your look.SONY DSC

This is my dad’s natural body language/stance so I went with it.SONY DSC

It was super fantastic that my dad happened to be working on a ’57 Bellaire. It is super roomy inside and the interior was in terrific shape and It provided great lighting. SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC

I hope you enjoyed looking at these fabulous pictures of my dear Mom. Which one(s) is your favorite?

Don’t hesitate to book your session. Let me make you feel fabulous and take some stunning portraits of you, how you are now, not after you have lost 20lbs or whatever is holding you back. Now 🙂

Modern Glamour Shoot ~ Jenae

I don’t think there is a woman alive that has ever NOT doubted she is beautiful. Or worse yet those who have never felt beautiful. One of the greatest joys of what I do is SHOW women that they are beautiful, not matter your age, weight, wrinkles etc I CAN take stunning photos of YOU. The sad part is most women don’t see the value in getting a portrait session for themselves or want to wait until this or that has changed. Chances are it’s not going to change, you are perfect as you are, let me show you that. I mean come on, do you really want the only photos you have of yourself to be in random snapshots? Now I’m not saying you should do a yearly portrait session for  yourself every year (unless you want to) how about every 5-10 years?! Get your family portraits done every 2-3 years, but why not get a session with just you, or just you and the hubs?  Asking the photog to snap a picture of you while at your family photo session is NOT going to be the same thing as a photo session where the focus is just you, it’s just not.




“I’m not gonna lie, I was incredibly nervous for this photo shoot.  I even thought about calling it off once or twice. I have never felt photogenic in my life.  In family pictures I can always hide behind my adorable kids but this was just me.  No where to run no where to hide.  However DeAnn made me feel beautiful.  Like a model really.  As soon as I saw the pictures I was shocked at how beautiful I looked.  My husband loved them too.  It was totally worth all the stress because in the end I knew I was beautiful and no one could tell me any different.” – Jenae


Jenae wanted the pictures for her husbands Christmas gift.  Oh, and he LOVED them! In fact he said “this is the best Christmas gift I have ever received.” He has pictures of her, on his night stand, at work. Seriously, what husband wouldn’t want stunning pictures of his wife or girl friend?! SONY DSC
