Senior Session Blowout: Katie {Southeast Idaho High School Senior Photographer}

Katie is one of the most comfortable people in front of a camera that I've ever met! Her mom actually sold me my first SLR camera and got me started in all of this years ago! I had so much fun following this gorgeous girl around Kansas City!

Mom wanted to photo bomb! I love this family!

I can't remember if jumping in the pond was my idea or hers. Either way she was cooperative! :o)

Senior Session Blowout: Micah {Southeast Idaho High School Senior Photographer}

Micah was so cooperative during his session, and we had so much fun! He brought a cool African drum he plays and he endured several poses from me and outfits from his mother!

His whole family plays really cool instruments. I'm not even going to try to remember what the name of this drum was!
Alright, we had our serious for some fun with shutter speeds!

About half an hour before sunset...we started an hour before sunset and had great, warm light the whole time!

If you like what you see, call and book a session today!

Senior Session Blowout: Hunter Mini-Session {Southeast Idaho High School Senior Photographer}

Hunter was one of the busiest seniors I worked with in Kansas City. We squeezed a 30 minute mini-session into his family's busy schedule and made it work! This is one of the busiest families I know; if they can pull it off, no one can say they "don't have time for pictures"!

Behind every session is a hard-working mother :o)

Thanks so much for your cooperation, Hunter! Congratulations on your graduation!

Call now for your senior pictures; winter is just about here and we can still make them happen!

Senior Session Blowout: Natalie {Southeast Idaho High School Senior Photographer}

Here is the first of many high school senior sessions I did while in Kansas City. NOW is the time to get your senior pictures taken! It will get cold here in Idaho and will stay cold for way too long, as we all know, so let's get them done now!

She was so brave...this ledge was about 25 feet off the ground on the backside, with about a four foot jump (in those four inch heels!) onto the wall to sit on it...this kiddo risked her life for these pictures! :o)

One of my favorites! I had a specific vision in mind and Natalie was such a great sport as I unflattering-ly laid down all over the concrete staircase, upside-down, no less, to get this shot!

Thank you so much, Natalie, for all your patience! I hope your senior year goes smoothly, and happy graduation!

If you like what you see, call Alaina at (913) 232-6420. I set up all kinds of custom senior sessions, based on the interest, sport, or instrument of the senior in mind!

More Clients from my "Past Life"

It seems like a completely different lifetime since I've lived in the midwest. I miss it so much, and I especially miss the friends and family there! Here are some more of those friends and their sweet family!

I met this sweet mama back when I was in high school and she had just started working there. She asked some teachers if they knew of anyone who could babysit for her two daughters, the youngest being 6 months old. We quickly found out that we only lived a few blocks from each other, and our families have been friends ever since!

For some reason, uploading these on the internet has made them super grainy...ignore that, in reality they're ready to be printed at any size!

Love it!

Oh, brothers...this one cracks me up!

 Sadly, the only times this little man would sit still and smile while by himself was while he was wearing a hat!
Still makes for some cute pictures, though :o)

These guys are Detroit fans!

So grown up!

Such a goof...made for a really fun session!

This sweetheart is the six month-old baby that I used to babysit, who now goes to school and has a little brother that hadn't even been thought of when I met them!

Girls! I am just loving E's crossed legs!

After we were all done, papa here decided he wanted to do a gag shoot where the whole family was excited about family pictures and he wasn't into it at all...this is what we got :o) What a fun shoot!
