Abby | Fort Defiance High School Senior | 2013

Long ago, Gabe needed a bus buddy.  A sweet & energetic young girl named Abby volunteered and thus began a long friendship.  I was excited two weeks ago to return to the valley and take Abby's senior portraits.  It was a beautiful warm day and downtown Staunton provided a wonderful backdrop for some beautiful images.  Gabe tagged along and loved spending a few hours with his good friend!  Abby, I hope you like your sneak peek.  Talk to you soon...

It's Prom Night for Gabe!

One of our goals for Gabe this school year was for him to attend the prom with his classmates.  As a junior, this was his first opportunity to dress up and boogie his heart out on the dance floor.  His teacher was on board so all it took was a bit of coaching (including the reminder that girls are not impressed when he calls them "Chica") combined with some serious tailoring at the tuxedo shop ("Sir, he has some very interesting proportions!") and Gabe was all ready for his big night. We dropped him off out in front of the dance where he was met by a classmate and his teacher.  After reluctantly allowing us to photograph his magnificence, he strutted into the building ready to wow his adoring public.  In the picture above, Jay thinks he is contemplating which dance move he should use to start the night; I think he may be considering how many girls will be mesmerized by his Venezuelan mojo.  Either way, we are confident the Fort Defiance High School Prom will never be quite the same!

MishMo in the City

I am posting these with the humblest of apologies to my daughter, Michelle and her sweetie Mo.  While I had completed the editing some time ago, I have not been good about posting any of my sessions to this blog.  Maybe I should have made "use blog more" to my list of New Year's resolutions; however, since 2012 is already half over, it appears I missed out on that incentive.  I shall just have to resolve to do better and hope for the best!  Enjoy these adorable engagement photos we took in Washington DC.
