{beauty} what a milestone!

i’ve known this girl for probably 6 years, and she has just blossomed into a beautiful young woman! she’s about to start high school this fall, and her mom wanted to commemorate this time in both of their lives with a “Mark the Milestone Mini Session”! even though it makes me feel old to call her a woman, i can’t think of any other word. i love you jenn and madelin, i hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Interested in booking a mini session to mark your child (and your) milestone of starting high school? email us: or send us a message through our contact page: contact page


{promo} what a milestone mini sessions!!

The baby photos on the wall, the toothless gap in their third grade school photo, the terrible haircut you did yourself the day before school picture day. They all have their memories, so mark the moment in time where your baby starts their first year of high school!

Investment $150. Includes a 30-45 minute session, with a disc of 25-35 high resolution, edited images.

With High School can come feelings of insecurity and low self-esteem. Beautiful photos of your student can bring self confidence and promote a healthy lifestyle. Your student will love being a model for an afternoon!
