Amber - Monett Class of 2016 Senior

How do I even begin to tell you how fabulous Amber and her mom, Terri were? So much fun and full of energy! The 50 mile an hour wind we battled in downtown Springfield, MO that day kept us on our toes but we came out with some fun and colorful shots to represent Amber's senior year. Amber's hair and makeup were done by Miss Carol Brown at Top of the Line Hair Design and somehow Carol's magic withstood that crazy wind. 

Here are a few of Amber and Terri's favorite images and a few words from each of them.

Our session was a complete blast! It was extremely windy out, but you didn’t let that deter you one bit. We laughed so much trying to capture those perfect shots and keep everything from blowing away.....including us! We are so appreciative of the time you spent with us trying to make sure you got that perfect shot in every location.

(The images) are AMAZING!! We knew that red hat was going to be stunning and you captured her personality so perfectly! The roller skating picture is adorable and carefree!

I am going to recommend you to everyone I know! I have been so impressed with your attention to detail and willingness to answer any questions we threw at you. We were nervous about choosing the right outfits, props and location and you were there every step of the way with ideas and suggestions. We really appreciated that you put together a special Pinterest board full of ideas so that we could visualize the outcome. You have been so personable and sweet that we felt like we’ve known you forever. You made what could have been a very nerve-wracking experience into an evening of fun in downtown Springfield!

There is not one thing I would change about our experience. You thought of everything to make our experience enjoyable and took all the stress away. Even down to having a wagon to wheel everything around to each location instead of having to carry it.

I saw what an amazing job you did with my friends senior pictures! I liked your style more than other photographers.

I honestly had a blast during our session. I never felt like I was under a lot of stress! It was different and very windy but it was a memorable experience.

I love (my images)! I feel like I got the look I was going for and I am in love with how they turned out! People have already asked me where I got them done! I think everyone would have a good time and they could be unique in their own.
