Sunny Smiles.

 The fall has the most beautiful wonderful photography weather. It’s sunny and cool and the world is still pretty green…And then throw in a beautiful family…well, it’s perfect. :)

Jasmine. Senior 2011.

 If you read my personal blog, then you might have read the post about the senior I had to shoot on a day when I felt less than stellar. Fortunately, Jasmine rocked it like a supermodel. I think my three year old could have taken pictures of her and gotten greatness. She was model-esque. Stunning. Beautiful.

IMG_2562-Edit.jpg IMG_2542-Edit.jpg IMG_2722-Edit.jpg IMG_2831-Edit.jpg I often leave senior shoots with a compulsive need to buy clothes and shoes. Because of shoes like these…IMG_2814-Edit.jpg

 I repeat. Stunning.

I adore this shot. The lighting was perfection.

a trip to Midland.

 This beautiful family came to San Angelo about 2(?) years ago for their family pics, but this time I went to them in Midland which I love doing. I love new locations! It’s a little scary, the unknown, but it’s so nice to try new spots! And this spot was super cool. Despite a threat of rain, crazy humidity and winter clothes on an unseasonably warm autumn morning, it was a fun little shoot!

Wilson Family.

 It was a beautiful sunny day when the Wilsons had their session. Until approximately 2 minutes before we pulled up to our location. And then suddenly, as if we were in a scene from a sci-fi movie, the sky grew dark and cloudy and wind started whooshing us around. It was bizarre! But we decided to keep on trucking and with the exception of a few crazy haired outtakes, you’d never know Mother Nature tried to put an end to our photo shoot before it even started.

Have I mentioned lately how much I need a girl? Just so I can buy a tutu?

selena. senior 2011.

 they’re all beautiful. What’s in the water here? seriously. And, here’s the other thing. They’re not just beautiful. They’re sweet and nice and involved in 502 different things and just.good.kids. Every time I leave a senior shoot, I feel…refreshed. Like being around that youthful, oh-the-sweet-possibilities-of-tomorrow carefreeness is catching.

Selena was fun! This picture below says it all!

Sometimes the wind does the most wonderful things…

A post?! From Jenny? Whaaaatt?

Meet Kambrey. A sweet bubbly little thing from Mason, Texas who climbed the treacherous “railroad mountain” for me, jumped in her cowboy boots way more than once and drove pretty much all over downtown San Angelo to some of the most random locations during her senior session. And did I mention? She’s beautiful…IMG_0212-Edit.jpg

the four sessions above did involve parents, but their cute little children just stole the show!

and then i went in a totally different direction…older kids! it’s amazing the difference. there was no chasing, no pleading to look at me, just stand here, do this, and smile! :)

in love...

that totally describes this couple…but it also describes my feelings for these pictures! we had to reschedule due to the rain. everything was still soaking wet the next morning, but we persevered. :)

i couldn’t have asked for better light and with a nice breeze blowing, everything just seemed right.

take a look at these eyes. holy smokes!
