Fashion Bridal Shoot | White Traditions Bridal House

I am excited to write this post and share this fashion bridal shoot with everyone! Working with Jessica of  White Traditions Bridal House in St. Charles, MO was a blast! Her gowns are simply stunning and a must-see for every bride-to-be. We were blessed to have three gorgeous girls model the bridal gowns and they were all knock-outs! This fashion bridal shoot was photographed in the downtown St. Charles area. We were blessed by the most amazing weather ever! I LOVE fall!!

We showcased six stunning gowns for White Traditions Bridal House plus some equally stunning accessory headpieces created by Sherrie Lovely of Couture Designs By Ice Green Eyes. A few unique furnishings were also borrowed from Worn Vintage Rentals on Second Street in St. Charles.

Taylor Smith | Timberland

Rarely do you meet someone who instantly makes you feel young, energetic and full of life as Taylor made me feel while photographing her. She was such a joy to work with.

Taylor has a passion for life that you can see and almost feel when you are around her. She will be attending Southwest Baptist University in the fall majoring in Journalism. Thank you Taylor for allowing me to capture your personality in your senior portraits. You nailed your session like a pro!

Malayssa | 2013 Holt High School Senior

One of the reasons I love high school senior photography is seeing, first hand, their love for life and excitement about what the future holds. They are truly all one-of-a-kind and it’s so fun to see each of their personalities shining through in their portraits.

One of the highlights to the 2013 senior season was meeting Malayssa. She was one of the nominees for the first-ever Radiant Images Photography Senior Portrait Scholarship. Malayssa was nominated by one of the high school counselors to receive the scholarship for her hard work and dedication to helping her family while still working hard at school. She is planning to attend college to major in nursing. I greatly admire her spirit and tenacity while facing challenges in her daily life. She has a bright future ahead of her. It was a real pleasure to present her with the 2013 senior portrait scholarship. Well done Malayssa!

2013 Senior Portrait Scholarship Awarded

It was an honor tonight to be among 30 community presenters at Holt High School for their awards night honoring 2013 graduates. Radiant Images presented at Senior Portrait Scholarship to a very deserving young lady. This all came about after several years in business and being blessed with wonderful, loyal clients I felt a duty to give back in some small way. Because one of my areas of focus is high school seniors,  I spoke with a guidance counselor at Holt High School and told her about my desire to award a senior portrait scholarship. She loved the idea and enlisted several other counselors who each nominated a student to receive this scholarship. The recipient was chosen based on recommendations from the counselor nominating them and also their own words written in their essay as to why they felt they should be awarded the portrait scholarship.

It was a difficult decision, all of the nominees certainly deserved to be honored. The 2013 recipient has overcome challenges and obstacles in her life with grace and determination. She is an inspiration to those who know her. We are proud of her accomplishments and know that this is only the beginning for her.  The 2013 recipient of the Radiant Images Senior Portrait Scholarship is Malayssa Hughes. Congratulations Malayssa, you are a beauty! To view Malayssa’s senior images, please go to her blog post.

The Whiting Twins | Holt High School | 2013 Senior

Every senior session is different, unique personalities, some are funny, some are serious, some laugh while trying to do a serious pose, while others find it impossible to smile naturally. Generally, guys are the biggest offenders of not smiling naturally. Not so with Brandon and Alec. Because they were together on their senior session, they could bust each other if one gave a fake smile. I loved it! These two are easy, laid back, and genuinely great guys!

Being an only child, I really have no idea what it’s like to share… anything :) … especially to share the same birth date, be dressed alike when young, and basically just always have a sibling with you. I’m certain there are times that you would wish you were an only child. I’ve actually had people tell me that! Not these two… I could tell, even though they are individuals and are going their separate ways for college, there’s still a strong bond there. One that cannot be broken. My hope it that when they look back on all of the ‘togetherness’ they have shared, they will remember all of the fun, laughs and love that has been experienced too. Congratulations on all of your accomplishments Alec and Brandon, I wish you all the best life has to offer!
