Seriously, I have no words for this session – definitely top 3 ever.  I’ll do my best to say something productive.

I work very hard to try and match the mood of the pictures I take/make to the personality and demeanor of the people I work with.  In this case, we both share the same saturnine personality, with plenty of good humor to balance it out.  Yes, she smiles.  Yes I take pictures of people smiling.  You’ll just have to trust me on that one, because you aren’t going to see much of it here… but we all had a blast. A happy blast.

This senior session speaks for itself, I think, and the longer I type, the more I will screw up what MacKenzie has to say.  {Jay shuts up}
