Playing the comparison game in any aspect of life is a dangerous thing. There is always someone who seems prettier, more successful, or just downright better than you at something that holds meaning to you.

Senior photography sessions can be as simple or elaborate as you please. Some people just book so they can appease their parents, but if you want to wow with your senior session, I have compiled a list to help you along the way!

I was blessed enough to recently shoot a destination wedding for Matthew's brother in Cancun (it was gorgeous guys!).  I have never shot anything South of Austin Texas, and really haven't had to deal with extreme humidity while shooting.
