Ordering and Viewing Session

I love ordering and viewing sessions. This is where you come over and get to see your photographs for the first time. This is also where you get to select the images you want to display on your walls as a piece of art/decor for your home. Tonight I had a viewing and ordering session with the senior below and her family, and this is just one of the many they selected as their favorites. It was fun seeing them excited and giddy over the photographs of their sweet, beautiful daughter.

I think this is one of my favorites too :) Amanda's Class of 2013 high school senior Clovis, New Mexico session taken by Clovis Portrait Photographer Cristy Cross_0020.jpg

Britney and Whitney are the sisters of Tayley, and Aundi.  I've also photographed their other sisters Holly and Ginny.  Needless to say, I love photographing the Beorsma girls.  They are graduating seniors of 2011 and came from Kansas for their session. We had the lovely Julia with us to style their hair and be the makeup queen as well. Here is one from their couture outfit-Betsey Johnson dresses.

2010 Senior.Kresta.New Mexico Portrait Photographer

Beautiful Kresta was a good sport on the windy, and cold day we did her session. She didn't let it bother her though as you can tell. She is a gorgeous girl and I'm so pleased with her session. Especially the ones with her hair up at the car wash :)

Jared.High School Senior 2010 Portrait New Mexico Photographer

Jared is one of the two guys I've had all year for high school senior sessions. It was a nice change to be photographing a guy and rework my poses to not look feminine. hahaha :) Here are the favorites from Jared's session.

Lubbock, Texas Portrait Photographer and New Mexico Portrait Photographer

Saturday I hung out with the McWilliams family. This is a super sweet family I met at Byron and Lindsay's wedding back in August.  Lauren (below) is Byron's sister.  It was nice seeing Lindsay and Sassy too!McWilliams family Lubbock Texas, portrait session

Let me just say if I looked like this when I was a senior, or even now, then I would be living on cloud 9.  I would first have to get a tan though :)  This beautiful girl is drop dead gorgeous.  And ya know what she told me?  She said she wasn't very photogenic!  Say what!!  I am gonna strongly disagree with that one.Clovis NM 2010 senior

I am loving all of these senior sessions. Tiffani you are beautiful. Know it, and own it :)

New Mexico Senior Session. Gab 2010

Gab's senior session is not your typical senior session. I had a concept for her. She is unique, and I wanted to give her something different.Theme: An Artist (because that is what Gab does) She and I together (along with some of Benson's help) put together the newspaper backdrop. I wanted to include some bright colors to reflect her bright and spunky personality Also, in search for a bouquet, I decided to do something unique and went with radishes. I love Gab's clothing choices. She was her own stylist. And a great one at that!

There was no possible way for me to post a few from her session. Our creativity put together resulted in the images below. And I am so excited about them all. Gab looks so lovely and beautiful in everyone of these images. Take a looksy...
