Presley’s Wildflower Session

It may be a couple years before Presley needs back to school pictures, but how cute does she look? This Wildflower dress was the perfect fit for her.

Such a happy baby.

Haven’s 2-Year-Old Session in the Studio

Haven's 2-Year-Old Session in the Studio - Lori Pickens Photography

I took Haven over to the studio to capture her two year old milestone session. I feel like she has grown up so much since turning 2. She is one tiny bundle of spunk and sass these days, and I just love her to pieces.

Simple setups are one of my favorite things to do in studio. I just love these number backdrops that we have.

My Boys Are Growing Up

My boys will be 6 and a half this month! I took them over to the studio to get there six year old milestone photos. I love these foam numbers that we have at the studio – just perfect for a yearly photo! It’s also really fun to compare them all side by side and see how they grow in comparison to the height of the number.

Alec’s Senior Session

I am so excited to share some of my favorite images from Alec’s senior session. Alec goes to Ritchie County High School, so I was so happy to hear that his mom loved my work enough to drive him all the way to Parkersbug to have me photograph him.

Alec has a sweet, easy-going personality, and with amazing red hair and blue eyes he’s pretty much any photographers dream client.

Did I mention he is a star football player for his high school? Like I said, whether he is rocking his letterman jacket or just relaxing in a button down shirt, Alec made my job so easy!

And despite the fact that he and his mom were harassed for bus fare during our session in Downtown Parkersburg, and then we were chased out of a field by an over-zealous security guard our adventurous session was one none of us will forget and also captured a gallery full of memory-worth images.

Mother-Daughter Session at Click Away Conference in Dana Point, California

I recently had the amazing opportunity to attend the Click Away photography conference in Dana Point, California. While I was there, I was lucky enough to attend a class all about shooting in full sun, taught by the extremely talented Twyla Jones. I personally love to shoot at golden hour or in beautiful back light situations, but sometimes that just isn’t possible. Especially considering the fact that I shoot my own kids everyday, and quite frankly a lot of our lives happen in full sun! And even though we had some clouds and not always a harsh sun, it was still so great to watch Twyla work and get some of her tips for dealing with full sun.

We had the most beautiful mother-daughter models for our session! Could these two be any more gorgeous?!?

And even though we were hoping for a bright, sunny sun, I’m certainly not going to complain about the crazy beautiful clouds and sky that we had that day.

We all could not get over how much the mom looked like Jessica Biel? Am I right?

This was my first time ever being in California, but I always love shooting on the beach. Dana Point was amazing because not only did we have this gorgeous sand and ocean, but we had these mountains off in the background.
