We took Drew’s senior pictures at Wildcat Den State Park and the Durant bowling alley. Drew has been bowling since he was 5 years old so this was the perfect spot for some of his senior pictures.

I don’t take a lot of newborn pictures, but after this session I definitely hope to shoot more! Emerson looked so precious with her bows. Along with her newborn pictures, we were also able to take a few family pictures!

The last time I photographed the Perez family, they were a family of 6. It’s so clear that their new addition, Enrique, is SO adored by both his parents and siblings. Their natural happiness and love for each other made my job easy.
