If you saw Part 1, you already know that Kelsey has been dancing for 15 years!  Here’s just a peek at what Kelsey can do!

 

one of Kelsey’s favorites…

One of my favorites.  Now, let me tell you, Kelsey is one of those girls that can get her leg WAY up there.

I caught this one in mid action though, but what I love is the expression on her face and the colors, so I had to include it!

When I posted the one on the right, I heard a few remarks about a resemblance to Taylor Swift!  Anyone else agree?  Tricia Toker Photography High School Seniors Senior Portraits Photographer Atlanta Georgia Alpharetta Georgia Johns Creek Georgia Lawrenceville Georgia Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Fulton County Kelsey Burrell Blog 020 Kelsey Burrell ~ Grayson High School ~ Class of 2013 {Senior Portrait Photographer} Part 2

It’s that time again, Chic Critique Forum‘s Chic Magazine Cover Contest!

I really had a difficult time selecting which image to submit this time.  I decided on an image of the lovely Savannah again.  This time though from the “Dreams of Fame” styled shoot.

Here is my submission for Chic Magazine:

A few weeks ago, the website Seniorologie announced they would be celebrating their one year birthday!  In addition to celebrating all month with birthday related giveaways and posts, they wanted to see any other photographers’ birthday concept shoots.    Early this week, I was soooo incredibly excited to see a birthday shoot that I put together featured on their website!   Click here for the Seniorologie post and read all about my inspiration for the shoot.    Then come back here and scroll down for more from this fun shoot!

and then where to keep them until the shoot!

I was trying not to duplicate images that were in the Seniorologie post, but I have to share this one again, because I literally have had this idea in my head for years!  I have always wanted to recreate different memorable movie scenes and this shoot was perfect to recreate the final scene from the movie “Sixteen Candles!”  Make a Wish!Tricia Toker Photography Seniorologie Birthday Concept Shoot Maili Lutz Atlanta Georgia Johns Creek Georgia Alpharetta Georgia Larwenceville Georgia Blog 024 Featured ~ Seniorologie ~ {Atlanta, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Lawenceville, Surrounding Areas   Senior Portrait Photographer}

Thanks to Leslie from Seniorologie for creating such an awesome resource for senior portrait photographers.  If it weren’t for your “birthday,” I probably wouldn’t have had a reason to pull this all together!

By the way…if anyone can get me access to a school (legally, of course), I have lots of other memorable movie scenes that I would love to recreate!

Tiffany Waldrop is my second to last Class of 2012 senior (awww – that’s sad) and my first senior from Tucker High School.  I sure hope she won’t be my last, because I cannot tell you how much I love her images!  :)

One thing that I do want to point out, Tiffany did have her hair & makeup done for her session.  It doesn’t hurt that she has the best hair ever and works at a salon!  You can see how much it adds though.  *Hint, Hint*  Of course, I think all my seniors should do this, because who doesn’t want to be pampered!!   Besides, Tiffany looks amazing and look at these eyelashes!!

Grayson High School’s Casey Arnold is one of those girls who is truly just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

We were first introduced to each other by Makeup Artist Laura Briscoe.  Casey is a very close friend of Laura’s sister Connor.  When we were looking for someone to do hair for the styled shoot, Laura mentioned that she had someone in mind that was awesome and could do just about anything when it comes to hair styling.

If you’ve seen any of the images from the styled shoot, you know that Casey did a tremendous job!  Her talents don’t end there though, because she will be graduating with honors in a few weeks!  :)

Before we get to Casey’s pics though, just a few words from the soon to be Class of 2012 graduate:

What are your plans after school?  
I plan to go into KSU’s nursing school!
What will you miss most about high school?
The close friendships I have made. Good thing a lot of my closest friends will be going to Kennesaw with me! icon wink Casey Arnold ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} oh, also my mom’s cooking! aha.
What are you looking forward to most after graduating?  
hanging out with friends, and not waking up at 5:30 am every morning.

 

Casey – can’t say that I blame you on the 530a part!  ;)

Wow!  Where have I been?!?!  I took a little break to attend the Seniorologie tour at Serenbe Farms in Palmetto, Georgia and never posted the last part of the Styled Shoot!  Shame on me!  I’m back though, so here we go!!!

Part 3 is the dreamy, ethereal set for the “Dreams of Fame” Shoot.

Who doesn’t want to be girly and in a flowy dress sometimes?!?!  I know that I lean a little more towards the rocker chick of Part 2, but I can’t help but LOVE this too!  Again, Laura & Angela outdid themselves with makeup & wardrobe.   Throw in a little hair by Casey Arnold and we have the most beautiful girls that I could have ever imagined.

Ohhhhh!!!  I’m sad now, because this is the last post from the shoot.  :(   I told you all before how much I loved this shoot and everyone that made it happen.   Thank you so, so much Laura, Angela, Casey, Savannah, Gretchen, & Candace.   I couldn’t have done this without you all!  Thanks for making my little vision come to life!

While I was editing the next day, I remembered some shots that I didn’t have time to capture.  I called Laura and asked her if she wanted to do another styled shoot using a theme solely based on those “missing” shots.   She reminded me that the night before, after being so pooped, I said that I wouldn’t do another styled shoot for a little while.  After laughing about how it took me less than a day to plan another one,  she happily agreed!  :)   That shoot will take place next month, but ya gotta wait for that one!

Just a little on the theme of the styled shoot – Dreams of Fame.   When I first met with Angela, I told her I wanted the shoot to have more of a storytelling element to it.  We talked about several different ideas, but then Angela thought of “Field of Dreams” since one scene was in a field.  Those “Dreams” could be of fame, love, freedom, etc.  I really liked the “Dreams of Fame” the best though.

Everyone has a different idea of fame or in our own minds, a completely different idea on how that looks.  Whether it be pretty, romantic…..or rockstar and dramatic!  We really didn’t end up doing the storytelling part of it so much, but the two looks are so unmistakably different.  I think they are each gorgeous in their own way and I LOVE them both.  I think my inner rock chick can relate to the first look a little more though, but like I said, we are all different!  ;)

When it came to makeup, I really wanted Laura to have the freedom to put together any look that she wanted to showcase.  Between the clothes and the makeup, I couldn’t have asked for a better end result than what Angela and Laura put together.

First up – Candace.  This shot was in the hallway just outside of the suite.  I loved everything about this place and I knew we had to snap a few shots here first before heading out.

I cannot get over how gorgeous Candace’s eyes are.  I think the makeup Laura did really make them jump out at you.

Not to mention, this ridiculous (in a good way) outfit Angela put together!

I adore these next few of Savannah.  Catching her laughing was such a treat!  A little behind the scenes scoop.  I wanted a bit of a wind blown look, so I asked Angela to fan Savannah with my reflector.

hmmm…that was a good idea in theory, but really, all it did was make us laugh.

Note to self, invest in a portable, battery powered fan.  ;)

See you next time!

If you have ever been thinking of putting together a styled shoot, be prepared to work.  Not a little bit of work either – a lot, BUT if you have a wonderful group of talented people to work with, like I did, you won’t just be happy with the outcome.  You will be elated, like I was!

I love everything about this shoot.  The makeup, the clothes, the hair, the models, the locations…EVERYTHING.  I’m not kidding, I really do.  So much so, that I am going to try to top it in a few months, but you’ll just have to wait for more on that later.  ;)

Back in December, I emailed a friend of mine who happens to be a stylist / personal shopper and has the best wardrobe I have ever seen.  This girl’s shoes alone are to die for, no joke!!  I’m serious.  I wouldn’t kid about shoes.  ;)  I asked Angela if she would be interested in working with me on an idea that I had.  Yay!  She happily agreed!

Next stop, makeup.  At the end of last year, I had been looking for a makeup artist to work with on my senior shoots.  I found Laura on Facebook, emailed her and we met in January.  I knew it would be a stretch for her to do the styled shoot.  We just met and here I am asking her to do a bunch of work and not get paid.  I asked anyway and Yay!  She happily agreed!  Of course, how could she have turned me down?  I mean really, it’s like we were separated at birth.  We are so eerily similar, but in a good way though!  :)

Fast forward to March, location decided on, models chosen, props made, many emails / meetings later – shoot day finally arrives.  Seeing all of your hard work come together, for all us, was such a great feeling.   Part of me was nervous because I knew that at the end of the day, it was up to me to make everyone else’s hard work look good and come to life in these pictures, but at the same time, I was strangely calm and not at all worried.

We met at the Wayfarer Hotel for hair and makeup.  This little hotel was so incredibly cool!  If you ever find yourself in Monroe, Ga, you must stay in their suite!  Oh come on, you know you have been dying to check out Monroe!

So this is where I leave you today, with us all getting ready for the shoot and the behind the scenes.

Ok, so there is your peek behind the curtains.  Now, you have to come back to see all the magic happen!

hmmm - suddenly this sounds like an MTV “Cribs” episode.  Odd.

Loganville High School’s Jordan Draughon is back on the blog!

What’s the number one question that I get asked before any session??

“What should I wear?!?”

My usual response, “bring EVERYTHING you want and lots of it!”   I love, love, love to have options and so will you!  I pick lots of spots to shoot in one session and I love to have that same amount of variety in wardrobe selection.

Jordan and her mom did such a good job with bringing lots of super cute clothes and accessories!

Ok, Ok, same girl, but wait – did everyone enjoy their spring break?!?

I worked, but how about the rest of you??  :)

 

Seriously though, I did take a blog break because I didn’t want anyone to miss reading while celebrating on the beach!    I know the blog posts are super fascinating, but somehow I doubt they compare to sandy beaches!  ;)

You may have already seen the sneak peek of Jordan on Facebook, but you’ll see more pics from her session here.  I really had a hard time picking my favorites, because there are sooo many…

So here we are – Bailey Ferguson’s final appearance on the blog.  You may know her for playing defense on the Grayson High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse team, but I like to call her “goat whisperer.”  Ok, ok, that may sound a little dramatic, but it’s really true!

Let me back up a bit.  When I first started looking for locations for Bailey’s session, I remembered some pictures she had posted to Facebook.  They had some old buildings in the background and I asked her where the location was.  Lucky for me, it was the property of one her friends.  Bailey got us permission to photograph there and we met a few weeks later so I could check out the place.

The owner told me that we could jump the fence to get to the older buildings.  When Bailey and I got there, we had a choice, jump the fence or stand on the other side and not get to explore.  If you know me, I don’t jump fences and I have never been on the same side of a fence as any farm animals. Without hesitation, over the fence Bailey went.  A gaggle of goats headed her way and I held my breath, because I wasn’t sure what was about to happen.  Some of the larger goats approached Bailey first, and they simply walked up to her and let her pet them.  It was so cool!  At this point, I realized how lame I was on the other side of the fence and I took my little girly self and over the fence I went too.  I gotta say, goats are cute, really darn cute!  Who knew!

Fast forward to the day of our session and we find ourselves with the goats again.  This time though, there were 3-4 baby goats.  Oh My Goodness!  All of them loved Bailey…especially, one little girl goat. Everywhere Bailey went, the goat followed, saying “baaa” the whole way.

Now, baby goats are cute, but watch out, because what I didn’t know, they like to nibble things (like Bailey’s toes) and they eat things when they are unsupervised.  I had set down a notebook with 4 sheets of paper sticking out of it.  We couldn’t have been away from the notebook more than 5 minutes, I’m not kidding!  When we got back to the notebook – all of the sheets of paper were gone!  They literally ate the papers!  Lesson learned, watch your paper products around goats.  ;)

awww…back to our little goat friend.  I have to admit, this is a bit deceiving.  The little girl goat was so rambunctious, so catching her still was quite a task.  Bailey withstood a lot of nibbling to get these shots, but I love them, so I’m happy that she didn’t mind.

With graduation approaching, what will Bailey miss most?

“The thing that I’ll miss most is probably going to be being so close with the people that are my friends now…I’ll miss just being able to hang out with them whenever I want & I know that our friendships will change when we all separate for college which makes me sad. Also, FOOTBALL GAMES! They were so much fun and painting up with everyone to cheer on my friends every Friday is definitely something I’ll miss.”

Bailey, it really has been great getting to know you over the past few months.   I know you feel indecisive now, but don’t worry.  When you go off to Georgia Southern in a few months, I’m sure you will excel.  You have such a great, positive attitude and that will get you far!

Thanks to the Mahaffey’s for allowing us to shoot on their property!  We had such a blast!

You wouldn’t know it was still a winter day in Georgia when I photographed Grayson High School’s Bailey Ferguson for her senior portraits.  Luckily, winter didn’t stick around long this year, so it was perfect weather for some cowboy boots and a little black dress!

Meet Bailey Ferguson –  Grayson High School Lacrosse player, Luke Bryan fan and overall energetic, fun, and fearless girl!!  If you follow my page on Facebook, you have probably seen a preview of this beautiful high school senior already, but her images really don’t tell the whole story.  I have photographed lots of people willing to do anything to get the picture, but when Bailey and I had to climb a fence (with permission of course) to a pasture full of goats, I knew we were going to have fun together!  More of that later…let’s take a look at some fierceness first!

Oh, and let me say, Bailey totally tricked me.  She may have said she wasn’t sure if she could do the serious face…OMGoodness, are you kidding me…check this out!

Class of 2012 is about half way through their final year.  Grayson High School’s Amy Thurber has had a pretty exciting year so far – cheering for the Grayson Rams, homecoming court.  In a few short months, what seemed like it took forever, will finally be here – graduation day.  Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber sxs i Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 3Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber sxs j Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 3Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber 72 Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 3Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber sxs k Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 3

So we already know Amy’s plans after high school, but for most seniors, these last few months are a time for reflection and excitement about what the future holds.

Amy – “What I will miss most about High School is cheering for football games, and being so close to all of my friends.
What I’m looking forward to most is getting my own apartment, making new friends and possibly joining a sorority.”

I won’t age myself by telling you the songs that bring me back to high school, but I did ask Amy which song she can relate to most right now.   I’m a bit of a sap.  I never heard this song before and it almost made me tear up a bit.  What a perfect song!  (if you haven’t heard it either, you totally need to look it up and listen)

“My Wish”

Rascal Flatts

I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,

And each road leads you where you want to go,

And if you’re faced with a choice, and you have to choose,

I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.

And if one door opens to another door closed, 

I hope you keep on walkin’ till you find the window,

If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

 

But more than anything, more than anything,

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,

Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,

You never need to carry more than you can hold,

And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,

I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,

Yeah, this, is my wish.

I really don’t know how to follow that up – other than to thank Amy for being a {Twelve}12 Senior Spokesmodel and her parents Sandi and Bill for being her “agents.”  ;)

It was great getting to know you guys!
Good luck to Amy and enjoy the last few months!!!  Graduation day will be here before you know it!

When we last left off with Grayson Ram Cheerleader Amy Thurber, she was celebrating with the rest of Grayson High School over their State Championship Win!  So what next?  What happens when the lights go out and the stadium empties?  For this Class of 2012 girl – graduation, of course, then off to college.

When I asked Amy, “what’s next for you after graduation?”  She started to answer, and then her mom said, “tell her what you really want to be!”  With a mischievous smile, Amy responded, “a trophy wife!”  With that, all three of us were laughing!  Hey, can’t say that I blame her!

All trophy wife dreams and silliness aside, Amy hopes to attend Georgia Southern after graduation to become a dental hygienist.  Amy, the only words of wisdom I can give…be kind to your future patients, those pointy instruments hurt!  ;) Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber 26 Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 2

While the ladies of Sarasota’s Three Kitcheneers are truly gorgeous on the outside, they are every bit as beautiful on the inside. An afternoon with these ladies is filled with laughter and fun. With beauty and feistiness, watch out Rachel Ray & Gordon Ramsey, these girls are super cute AND they can definitely speak their minds!Tricia Toker Photography Three Kitcheneers 45 Commercial Portrait Shoot Sarasota Florida Three Kitcheneers ~ {Sarasota Florida Commercial Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 2Tricia Toker Photography Three Kitcheneers sxs d Commercial Portrait Shoot Sarasota Florida Three Kitcheneers ~ {Sarasota Florida Commercial Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 2 What’s so great about these ladies and why will you love them?  Where do I begin…

They came onto the video blogging scene only four months ago, but their passion & love for food and all things related began long before that.  Assunta, Charlotte, and Megan are collectively working very hard to make the Three Kitcheneers successful, so you would think they probably have time for little else.  Not true though.  They do all this and they have families too.  Assunta is married with two children.  Charlotte has a husband & a baby boy. Megan has a boyfriend and says, “I am the proud pet parent of Coco the Pomeranian and Jasmine the Siamese cat.  They are the little loves of my life.”  Awww, don’t you just love her!  I, seriously, wanted to pack the three of them in my suitcase and bring them home with me!   Not kidding, they could be comedians on the side too!  They had me cracking up, from beginning to end!  I wonder, are they this funny separately or is it their combined effort that makes them at their best?  Either way, you can’t help but love them and I think that’s exactly what will catapult them to stardom.

Oh yeah, you probably want to see more pictures of them, don’t you!?!?!

Assunta is charismatic, full of energy and has a smile that lights up a room.  Best of all, she makes anyone feel like a best friend within minutes.  Tricia Toker Photography Three Kitcheneers sxs h Commercial Portrait Shoot Sarasota Florida Three Kitcheneers ~ {Sarasota Florida Commercial Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 2Tricia Toker Photography Three Kitcheneers 81 Commercial Portrait Shoot Sarasota Florida Three Kitcheneers ~ {Sarasota Florida Commercial Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 2 Charlotte, reserved in the beginning…she is calm and quiet.   You soon realize though that once she warms up, she is every bit as feisty and can she knock out some poses!  As RuPaul would say…Work it!!

At the end of the day, we said our goodbyes, packed the cars and we said goodbye to Charlie (the dog).  I flew home the next day and thought about the shoot and the new friends I had made.  Oh yeah…what inspired me??  Really, the whole day did, but I think it was mostly our talk with Megan.  I came away from this opportunity knowing that I am still going to try really, really hard to be successful but at the end of the day, I better be happy with who I am…and truly, I am.

So picture me toasting all of you (Naomi, Assunta, Charlotte and Megan) with my imaginary champagne glass, to all of our futures and what’s sure to be some fabulous adventures ahead!  :)

If you haven’t heard of Sarasota’s Three Kitcheneers, don’t worry, I’m sure you will soon enough.  If Food Network doesn’t come a calling soon, I will be shocked.  Mix a love of all things food, add in some humor and a ridiculous amount of beauty and you have a recipe for these lovely ladies.  Tricia Toker Photography Three Kitcheneers 37 Commercial Portrait Shoot Sarasota Florida1 682x1024 Three Kitcheneers ~ {Sarasota Florida Commercial Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 1

Inspired – that’s how I felt after an afternoon with Assunta, Charlotte & Megan, but let me back up a bit though.  I’m getting ahead of myself.  :)

When the call came asking if I wanted to take part in a photo shoot in Sarasota, I knew I couldn’t pass on the opportunity.  I really didn’t care what I was helping with or shooting – sign me up!  I’ve told you about my spunky friend Naomi before, but what I haven’t mentioned is how we are always talking about how if we lived closer we could shoot together.  Well, I’m not moving and much to my husband’s dismay, I haven’t won the lottery yet, BUT Naomi and I finally got to shoot together!

After weeks of Naomi planning, the day came and I arrived in sunny Sarasota.  1st stop, the Molinari residence.  The estate is spectacular.  It was built in the 1920′s and has ties to the famous Ringling family.   As we approached the door, a reddish brown dog with gray over each eye and around his nose greeted us…Charlie was clearly in charge of this house.  :) After we got a tour of the house and the grounds, Naomi and I got to work and began setting up.

The scene was to be a lovely outdoor picnic.  The pillows and sweet treats and all the other handpicked details (by Naomi) transformed the backyard into a magical garden.  I could have curled up with a good book and gotten lost for hours.  Tricia Toker Photography Three Kitcheneers 7 Commercial Portrait Shoot Sarasota Florida Three Kitcheneers ~ {Sarasota Florida Commercial Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 1Tricia Toker Photography Three Kitcheneers sxs a Commercial Portrait Shoot Sarasota Florida Three Kitcheneers ~ {Sarasota Florida Commercial Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 1

Once the ladies arrived, the fun began.  When you meet them, you can’t help but feel like you have known them forever.  It was like five friends hanging out, gossiping, enjoying the day, well…except three of them looked like they stepped off the cover of a magazine!  You want to be envious of their beauty, but you can’t be because they treat you like a best friend!

Let’s take a look at the Three Kitcheneers -Tricia Toker Photography Three Kitcheneers 18 Commercial Portrait Shoot Sarasota Florida Three Kitcheneers ~ {Sarasota Florida Commercial Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 1

See you then!

Be sure to check out Naomi’s Blog too for all of her images from the day.   While I shot all of the above images…this photo shoot was her baby…I was just along for the ride.  :) 

Naomi also had help from the following Sarasota businesses:

About five years ago, I met Naomi.  You can’t help but smile when you are around Naomi.  She is so bubbly and so fun.  I don’t think that I’ve met someone with as much energy as she has….and that’s even without drinking an energy drink!  :)

Naomi and I became really close about 2 years ago as we both got into photography.  While I specialize in Seniors and Portraits, Naomi is a Sarasota Wedding Photographer.  The more often we spoke, we began to realize that while we live far away from one another, we are eerily similar!  :)   Whether it’s our love of bad reality TV or cameras or shoes, it’s like we were separated at birth, seriously!  AND…Naomi is also responsible for introducing me to blogging years ago, so we have her to thank for that!

A few weeks ago, Naomi and her husband came to Atlanta for a visit.  We decided that we should photograph each other since we seldom are in front of the camera lately.   My only disappointment is that I didn’t have longer to get more pictures of her!   After she took my pics, I quickly took some of her alone and then some of Naomi and her husband together.   Her husband Amir, by the way –  super patient!!  Thanks for putting up with us Amir!!  :)

I think Naomi may have forgotten to mention to me that she clearly knows how to work it front of the camera as well!  AND check out her super cute dress – LOVE IT!  :)
