3 Steps to Nailing Your Senior Photo Session | Belle's Senior Session | Frisco Senior Photograph

I'm just going to put this out there. I've never said this before. You can go ahead and read all of my other blog posts if you want to cross check me. Here it is. I'm OBSESSED with this senior session. Belle showed up prepared and ready to rock her double location senior photo shoot. We started off at Frisco Heritage Center in the morning and ended with a local field in the evening at sunset. There were several reasons this session went so well for her.

SBVA Snaps Studio Remodel

When we were house shopping last year, one of my biggest desires was to have a home with a large, designated area in the downstairs to use as my studio space. I needed a few things, wonderful natural light, shelving, and room to move around. To an average Joe, this used to look like a study and a formal dining room. By the way...who formally dines anymore? The heart of our dinnertime meals usually take place at our eat-in kitchen table. One request that Matt made is that he was able to build room partitions with curtains, which actually works perfectly for holding in warm air for my newborn studio sessions. Those sweet little babes need it to be cozy so they can move around sleepily while un
