Austin is an amazing HS Senior from Florence. He's got goals and ambitions and a HUGE love of baseball. No jokes, he pretty much lives at the baseball diamond year round, and that's saying alot for a Montana kid who has to endure the cold and snow! We started out Austins session in the dugout, making sure to capture the important elements that make up the sport. What's baseball without a dugout and the glove?! Moving around the field, we utilized the beautiful colours of the pine trees that surrounded us, and the consession stand that his parents own. I was so happy and thankful to be a part of this awesome session, because you could just "FEEL" the love of the sport running through his veins, and to be able to capture that.. priceless. As the team says, "Once a Buc, Always a Buc!"

This session's basic idea was pulled out of my imagination and put together by an amazing team of artists. I say team, because because without the help of others, this magic couldn't happen. My goal for the new year is to do one concept shoot a month. It's good for me to help stretch my creative wings, and its a great way to meet and work with other professionals in my city. I work with the beautiful young lady who is the model at our local hospital in the ER, and what a spit fire she is! Using her unique roller-derby look (yes! She did used to play for the HellGate RollerDerby team!), I consulted with Lisa (Lisa's Mini Mad Hattery) for a custom head piece to accent Rachel's amazing red hair and fun tattoos. Then based off the hat, my MUA, Jenn, went to work with Rachel's fair skin and the hat to give us an amazing smokey chicness. To top it all off, Anna used her own creative judgment with the hair! A perfect look!!! The day of session, it was a balmy 18 degrees. We drove to the local NorthSide Cemetery to make use of the clear roadways, and beautifully frozen trees and pillar gates. It was freezing, but it gave us that literally "cool edge" to pull off the look. Magic. Sheer. Chic.

This senior session was alot of fun! Derek wanted to make sure his senior images were special and different, so we went on a small hike along the river banks of the Bitteroot River at Chief Looking Glass. His personality totally shown bright in his session. He is an aspiring musician, being a member of the drumline, pep band, and choir at Florence - Carlton High. His goal is to go to college for Audio Science. He's an active member in his youth group at church, and we even did some of his images there in the UpperRoom, Youth Group hall! As well as loving music, he took All-State in football and is in AP Calculus! Wow! Go get 'em tiger!
