Sneak Peek: Cassidy

A few weeks ago, I got a frantic phone call from a mom who had a daughter that needed senior pictures ASAP.  Her daughter was nominated as volunteer of the year last year at school and she won a complimentary sitting fee with a big name photographer for her senior pictures.  When she had the session, she felt uncomfortable with the photographer, only had 45 minutes and wasn't allowed to change into all the outfits she wanted.  She came away disappointed.  Then they got the proofs.  While they were great pictures......the photo packages STARTED at $2600.  Hey people...that is more than I charge for WEDDING photos.  So they were left with a dilemma.  And then they heard about me.  I did pictures for Cassidy's softball team mate and she passed my name on.  Thank goodness for word of mouth!  I was more than happy to try to make up for their not-so-great first experience.  People, you need to feel comfortable with your photographer!  Make sure the person behind the camera is likable.
We got together just a few days later on a beautiful summer day and took pictures for 90 minutes.  She changed outfits as many times as she wanted and other than the blistering was a blast.  I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this amazing senior gal and her awesome mom.  I can tell that they have a great relationship and I loved watching them interact!  Big thanks to mom for all of the fluffing, hair placement, hydrating, prop arranging and shlepping.  Moms are the best!

 Doesn't she have the best smile?  And the eyelashes....real.  Ahhhmazing!  Don't even get me started on her gorgeous hair.
Cassidy is a big-time softball player.  She plays year-round and is more than likely going to get a big scholarship to play in college.  She is highly sought after as she is an amazing pitcher and one of the top hitters in the state. What a combo!  I wouldn't want to stare her down while standing at the plate. 

She is also a country girl.  How could you not be with a name like Cassidy Creekmore?  It just sounds like a rodeo queen, right?  She is hoping to go to college down south so she can live amongst her peeps.
Cassidy, good luck in your senior year.  I hope you have a wonderful season and that you are able to enjoy this special time in your life.

It was hard to pick my favorites from this session.  The camera loved her.  If you want to see the full gallery, click here.  Or you can visit my website or Facebook page.  Thanks!

If you know of anyone else who needs last minute pictures, pass my name along.  I have spots open!  Also, don't forget that my prices are going up starting September 1st.  So book your date for the fall now to receive the old pricing!
