Denise Rocks! | St. Louis Senior Photographer |

Gonna blast you with a WHOLE bunch of seniors in the next couple of weeks.... I have a ton of them waiting in the wings to share.

Have I said recently how much I love shooting seniors? It's partly the ex-high school English teacher in me, partly my own big ol' off-the-wall side that seems to tap into my inner adolescent... And part just LOVING watching these girls BLOOM in front of the camera... without fail, EVERY TIME.

Seniors. LOVE them. And have been loving playing around a bit with my style and my locations.

Let's start with Denise-- a girl with ideas of her own about how to fit in this world. With cherry red electric guitar in hand:

Don't you just LOVE her spirit? She was an utter delight!!

There will be some more sessions soon... senior girls of the class of '10. LOVE!

As for me... Noah didn't nap today, the stinker... But I forgave him when, at bedtime, he nestled down into my arms and completely fell asleep while I sang the usual songs to him. I cannot tell you the last time he fell asleep in my arms. It completely took my breath away and put me in my favorite moment of the entire day.

I love being a mama. LOVE it. I get the next two days to JUST be a mama, with no sessions or other obligations. I am so ready for some down time. It has been go go go all week.

Remember--- my contest is still open until Thursday night. I have about 7 or 8 entries, so there is absolutely room for ANYONE to win. I still want to award three prizes, so.... odds are pretty great here! :)

Off to bed with me... Happy almost-weekend!!
