WHAT MAKES THESE PHOTOS SO SPECIAL?

Can I tell you something I wish I knew as a high school senior?  This will most likely be the last time you have your photos professionally taken until your wedding day!  Say what?!?  So why not take advantage of this HUGE milestone and document who YOU are at this very moment.  My goal as your senior photographer is to design a session that is 100% unique to YOU - your style, your personality, your interests.  We'll work together from the very beginning to choose a location that matches your vibe, outfits that match your style, and posing that looks authentic and natural.  It's truly an experience you'll cherish long past graduation.

My daughter loved Desiree's style of photography, but she is typically camera shy and was stressed about finding the perfect outfits to wear for her senior photos.  She saw how beautiful other girls looked in their outfits, but those were not her style.  She is athletic, and is most comfortable in sporty attire.  She didn't want her session to be a typical athlete photoshoot.  Desiree was so kind and helpful throughout the whole planning process.  She worked to incorporate my daughter's informal stye and made suggestions for what would photograph well.  Her suggestions were perfect and she captured photos that look effortless and causal.  Desiree's perspective and artistic talent resulted in beautiful photos that we will treasure for a lifetime!

Des makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and never fails to capture the best photo of you!  She knows how to work every angle, and is incredible at playing with light.  Shooting with her is an experience you will never forget!

My experience with Desiree was amazing! The way she directed my poses made the process so effortless and fun, plus I look so natural in all of my photos.  As a dancer, I struggle liking most photos taken of me. I tend to find something wrong with every photo, but after seeing my gallery, I love every single image.  I feel like I didn’t take one bad photo!

I'm Desiree,
and I'm a little bit more than just your photographer.

So what exactly do I mean by that.  Well, put simple, I'm your own personal hype-(wo)-man.  I'm not just excited about taking your photos, but I'm dying to show you just how gorgeous you are!

 

I can usually be found laying on the ground or climbing on things (I'm only 5' 2" after all) to get the perfect angle for the shot.  And when we get THE shot, I'm usually screaming behind the camera while running to show you just how incredible you look.  And when you see what's on the back of the camera... well 9 times out of 10, the response is usually something like, "OMG! That's really me??"  Uh, yes girl, it 100% is YOU... and

YOU. ARE. FIRE!
