So begins my "catch-up" posts! With the weather being so frigid the last couple days, I thought a nice, cheery, and warm session would be fitting! These image are from a senior session I did back in September with Alyssa. She is a totally down-to-earth and sweet girl. She was up for pretty much anything I threw her way. Our motto that day was "If it feels awkward...you look hot!" (thank you Brooke Photography for that truth!) The poses that she didn't think would work out totally did and ended up being some of her favorites! So, without further ado - here is the beautiful Miss Alyssa!
2011 was a very busy year - especially towards the end. That is a wonderful thing and I am very thankful for it, however, not so great for any blog followers I have (or did have....). My blog is the first thing that I let go when things get crazy. Unless you are on my Facebook page, you probably haven't seen a LOT of the work I did last year! So....I am resolving to keep up with this blog. I will try my very best! I am also resolving to post a lot of the sessions that I did last year and update my portfolio on this site. It
Do you ever just smell, taste, hear, or see something that transports you, instantly, back in time? I'm sure you do. It happens to me all the time. Today, I made myself an ice cream sundae, complete with bananas and chocolate syrup (I forgot to buy whipped cream though). I knew it would be good, but didn't think much of it until I took that first bite. The familiar taste, with the mixture of the yummy, ripe bananas and sweet chocolate, coupled with the frosty vanilla ice cream, took me back about 25 years to 7 or 8 years old. On that night, I was laying in my bedroom,
Hi everyone! First off, I want to apologize for being kinda MIA for this week. I have been not feeling the greatest - bad sore throat and cold. :-( But, I'm feeling soooo much better today! The second and main thing I want to let you in on - is the $99 (+tax) sessions going on now. You will get a 1 hour session with 10 images on CD. You will also receive (2)8x10s or (4)5x7s. It's a super awesome deal and is great if you want some updated pictures or even to try custom photography for the first time. You're saving a ton of moo-la this way! Contact

There is so many ways to make your photos really stand out and one major way is catchlights. What are catchlights? Catchlights are the reflections of light in your subject’s eyes. Without them, your image can seem flat and lifeless. However, get some awesome catchlights and your portrait will take on a life of its own and really sparkle. I love eyes! I do a lot of closeup work on faces because of this. There’s nothing like a portrait that can see directly into a person’s soul. “So”, you ask, “how do I get catchlights in the eyes?” It’s really pretty simple! Look at your subject before you snap
High School Senior Pictures: How to Make Yours Stand Out! | Beloit, WI Senior Portraits | Teri Lynn Photography
Gone are the days of just using one boring backdrop! Now, high school seniors have so many more options for their portraits. You want to be able to stand out among all your friends, so I compiled a short list of some super easy ways to do that: 1. Bring Props Whatever your interests are, you can easily incorporate it into your session! If you’re into art, bring some of your art supplies and get photos of you creating! If you love basketball, bring it with you! Anything else that is YOU will work for your session. 2. Watch Your Wardrobe You do NOT have to get all fancied-up
Phew...I didn't think I would make it by midnight! I thought it might be a What-To-Wear Thursday instead of Wednesday! :-) I started working on it this morning, but once my kids get up, that's pretty much it for any in-depth blog posts until after they go to bed! But, I got it done! This weeks What-To-Wear can apply to High School Seniors or even engagements! All fashions are from American Eagle. They have a pretty decent sale going on right now too!

Good morning! I am trying something new today - a video tutorial!! This is my first time doing it and it was SO fun! I hate my voice - but I'll deal with it. LOL! I think I could easily become addicted to doing these videos. :-) Today's video tutorial is about how to add warmth and contrast to an image. Here's a before and after: Let me know what you think! Here's the link in case the embedding doesn't work.
Good morning everyone! I hope you are all thinking of ways to stay cool and safe during this super hot weather stretch we're having. It is going to be an interesting week, considering we won't be spending a lot of time outdoors. I am always so concerned with my kids overheating because they don't know when to slow down! Today's plan is a well-baby checkup for Abigail at 10:30 and then playtime at McDonald's. Hopefully, we will be able to swing some early morning/late evening walks and playtime outside, because they go crazy if they are confined to the house for any length of time! Anyways.....enough of my rambling
