Last weekend I had the pleasure of a senior portrait session with a young man from our Church. Jeff's mom challenged me to get a genuine smile out of him, evidently he doesn't give them frequently when in front of the camera. It took a little while but eventually we found that smile, and it's quite lovely.

These are a few of my favorites:

I also had the added challenge of glasses. Not only the glare and reflections but his glasses tinted in the sunlight hiding his eyes. He agreed to take them off for a some shots without glasses and revealed a pair of STUNNING green eyes.

I love shooting in old Elk Grove. So many gritty backgrounds to up the "cool" element for a very cool guy.

I enjoyed strolling along and chit-chatting with Jeff. He's got a bright future and a wonderful family supporting him. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to get to know you and capture this special time in your life.

Congrats Jeff!


  1. Lovely shots. I love the color and perspective.

  2. WOW!!! Love them. You rocked this shoot. I bet he is trilled!

  3. You sure did get him to smile, and he has a wonderful smile.
    Each one of these is wonderful Kimberly. I am sure he and his mom will be so pleased with them!

  4. I bet his mom is going to be SO happy!!! Great shoot, great pictures.

  5. these are great....you had your work cut out for you. first, senior boys are harder then girls and second, glasses are always hard !! i think he and his mom will love these !!

  6. You captured my nephew beautifully; he is such an amazing young man who has grown up so much. I know we are so proud of who he is becoming and couldn't be any prouder of him.

    My sister I'm sure loves these pics of her baby boy and your ability to get not only his green eyes but also his playful side.

    Thanks again


I love comments too!
