Project 365, Day 299 (10/29/09) More Halloween treats

I made this veggie skeleton for Logan's class. We also made frozen, chocolate-covered banana "ghosts", but I forgot to take a photo before we wrapped them all up to freeze.

It turned out pretty cute, I think, but didn't have much to it, so I just made up an additional veggie tray.

Project 365, Day 298 (10/28/09) Spooky snails and spider-wiches

That's what Jackson wanted me to make for his class. So, I obliged. The snails were completely Jackson's idea and turned out pretty cute!

Project 365, Day 297 (10/27/09) Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the woods...

Oh, and in the spirit of Halloween fun, I thought I'd share these interesting YouTube video about the "Dogman" of Michigan. Enjoy.

Project 365, Day 296 (10/26/09) Something strange is going on here...

...and I can't quite put my finger on it.

Stay tuned... I'm going to get to the bottom of this!

Project 365, Day 295 (10/25/09) A guy of many talents

I had a great time with David today! Not only is he an awesome drummer, but he plays football & baseball, too! You may have recently seen him in the paper for assisting the Spartans in taking down the Orioles during an intense Friday night game.

I'm still working on editing David's photos, but here is a sneak peek for him and his folks!

Beautiful Miss Mollie ~ 2010 Senior

Mollie and her family are so soft-spoken and sweet; I really enjoyed working with them!

Again, I'm not sure how I do it, but I manage to luck out with the PRETTIEST senior girls! I mean, Mollie is just stunning! Check her out!

Now, I thought Mollie was maybe a little bit off her rocker for wanting beach portraits in OCTOBER (sorry Mollie! :) ), but I'm so glad we went, because even though we were freezing, the photos turned out fantastic!

THANK YOU, Mollie and family, for being such great sports out in the cold! I appreciate your business and hope you love Mollie's photos!

The positively lovely Miss Rosie ~ 2010 Senior

Rosie is SUCH a sweet girl, and I had a blast with her! She is so beautiful and just shines in her portraits. Check them out!

Rosie brought along her little sister for a few shots, too!

I'm pretty sure this summarizes how Rosie feels about graduating in 2010...

Thanks again, Rosie and family, for trusting me with Rosie's senior photos. Good luck to you in the future, Rosie. It was a pleasure getting to know you.

More of beautiful Alexus ~ 2010 Senior

Alexus, Weston, and I headed to Manistee for this session. Downtown Manistee has SO much potential for awesome urban-esque photos; I really hope more seniors take advantage of this great location!

My travel fee for going to Manistee is $25.00. For one travel fee, we can do downtown AND one of Manistee's beautiful beaches.

Check out how Alexus rocked her session!

And a couple from the beach...

The stunning Miss Jasmine ~ 2010 Senior

Jasmine was SO much fun to work with. I especially loved trekking around town with her, looking for cool spots for her portraits. Thank you, Jasmine and Tracy, for trusting me with Jasmine's senior portraits!

The adorable Miss Adriana

Adriana was a delight to have in the studio, and boy, does the camera love her! Here are a few of my favorites from her session.

Big thanks to Adriana's mom for trusting me with her portraiture needs. I hope to see you both in the future!
