Who it’s for:  I need high energy students who are well known in their class for being friendly, outgoing, and fun.  Someone who is able to encourage and inspire; who has style, personality and confidence; who sets a positive example and is an excellent influence.

You may be Senior Model material if:

  • you actively engage on social media but put the phone down when you're with friends
  • you'd be excited to post photos from your model session shouting out Michelle McMillan Photography (although this is NOT a requirement)
  • you love random acts of kindness & have a grateful & giving spirit
  • you enjoy making new friends and you have a judgement free attitude
  • you understand the value of quality senior photos and tangible keepsakes
  • you aren’t afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try something new!

Michelle McMillan Senior Models are those who wouldn't want anyone else but Michelle McMillan Photography to photograph them and who want to be FIRST.  I do require Senior Models to invest in their senior portrait session and a portion of the senior portrait purchase up front in order to participate - if you want to find out more, please fill out the application and I will be contacting you soon!

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU: 

  • At least one complimentary individual model session - you will get a few social media sized images from each model session you participate in for your photo app so you can share on social media/show to friends & family - and you can add them to your senior portrait order if you choose (for your album or wall art etc). 
  • You get first choice for the dates on my calendar for your senior session  

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME:  I will use your images for advertising senior sessions for the upcoming year.  
 

You do not have to be a model or have a certain 'look'.  I am more interested in your personality and want to work with POSITIVE, AMBITIOUS & FRIENDLY people!  I’m looking for role models not runway models.  

CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED

 

I'm looking forward to finding my model team for #co2022 & getting to know all of you!

Michelle

BAILEY

  • What position do you play?
    DS/libero
  • How long have you played this sport?
    Seven years
  • What if your fondest memory of playing this sport?
    My fondest memory comes from eighth grade night. We were in the middle of a huddle and Coach Decker was handing it to us. It was pretty well deserved; we weren't performing at our best. The team was down and I could tell that everyone needed a pick-me-up. So, in the middle of Coach Decker's screaming fit, I walked right up to him, grabbed his tie, and said "I like your tie." He looked at me like I was nuts but soon the whole team was laughing. We ended up winning, by the way.
  • Are you looking to play in college or in the future?
    I would love to play in college if the opportunity presented itself.
  • Have you ever received any medals/recognition in this sport?
    I was appointed to the All-Academic Team last year and also received the Leadership award at the banquet.
  • If you could play for any Pro team, who would you play for?
    The Harlem Globetrotters, obviously. (Definitely not volleyball related but super cool)
  • Who is your role model? Who do you look up to?
    My role model is Mrs. Stacy Pierce. She is the strongest, most hard-headed person I know. It was her way or the highway. But she would always take up for her kids. I can't think of anyone who advocated stronger for her students than Mrs. Pierce. She gave me the confidence to do so many things that I wouldn't have dreamed of doing otherwise.
  • Who would win a battle between Spiderman and Batman?
    Spiderman-
  • What do you like to do in your free time?
    I love to Bible journal and watch The Office (often simultaneously).
  • If you were any animal what animal would you be? Why?
    I would be a turtle because they are actually the coolest. They can be as lazy as they want any nobody judges them, but they can also be superheroes like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Think of a better animal; I'll wait.
  • What are your plans after you graduate?
    I hope to attend the Bellarmine University Honors Program to obtain a degree in Learning and Behavior Disorders. 
  • As you are completing your senior year of high school, is there anything you would like to tell your parent(s)/guardian(s) about the impact they have had on you?
    Thank you :). I appreciate all of the late nights on the road, early mornings at tournaments, and jerseys stretched over kitchen chairs. It's important to feel supported and I count myself lucky that I've never doubted that. I've never doubted that no matter what I choose to pursue, I will always have a cheering section behind me.
  • Tell me about the accomplishment you are most proud of (can be related or unrelated to the sport/team)...  My proudest accomplishment is my baptism. I didn't actually accomplish anything, it was God who cleansed my sins. But it's still the thing that I'm most proud of. I am so proud to be a part of God's family. I am so proud to be called a friend of Jesus. I am so proud to be known and loved by Christ my Savior.
  • Favorite places to do something fun:  My favorite place on earth is Disney World! But besides that, I am more of a homebody. I prefer a simple night in with friends to a night out on the town.

  • After I graduate, I can't wait to:   There are so many things that I can't wait to do! I want to travel to Disney World in Hong Kong, coach a Special Olympics team, and adopt a million puppies.

  • Other interesting things about me & my dreams:   My dream is to advocate for disability rights. I would love to start a special needs VBS program in Grayson County. The most important thing to me is to glorify God in everything I do.

Tayvin Gardens - Senior Model Shoot Part 1 https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2019/8/tayvin-gardens-senior-model-shoot-part-1 A few weeks ago, I got the opportunity to photograph one of my senior models at Tayvin Gardens, a garden venue in Smiths Grove, Kentucky.  Below is part one of our shoot (with senior model, Abigail), inside the main area of the Venue House. Be on the lookout for future blog posts, featuring other locations around the venue.  (***and to my other senior models, Kaylee & Emily - we missed you!!!!)

John Walker Sitter Session https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2019/8/john-walker-sitter-session JOHN WALKER

For all of my clients who choose to do the Baby's First Year Club, we plan one set that will be photographed for all sessions in the first year.  For Walker's portraits, we planned to keep the nursery setup for each session during his first year, including a fox and a sign with his name.  We used a cute little tan and brown sitter outfit from by 3 Strands.  Next up was a classic little OshKosh bibbed overall (these are the best for sitting or standing babies!!!).  And then we ended with a fun little alligater onsie.  

Walker is a doll, of course, but he is such a happy baby too!  Enjoy!

Mia - Class of 2020 https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2019/8/miaclassof2020 MIA - CLASS OF 2020

Mia told me she didn't like to dress up.  She seemed like a jeans and tshirt kind of girl, and I got the impression that she wasn't entirely sure how she would do in front of the camera.  I wasn't sure how it would go... but right off the bat, I KNEW she was a natural.  She fell into poses so comfortably.  Her serious was face was killer.  Her smile was even better.  And her EYES stole the show.  Thank you Mia for trusting me with the images that will forever be a lasting memory of this special time in your life!

Images from Box Beckham Creative https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2019/7/images-from-box-beckham-creative Hey friends!

I just got back from an incredible weekend of learning from 2 of the BEST photographers in the nation.  I attended a photography workshop in Oklahoma and learned so much from Gary Box (Box Portrait Gallery, Tulsa, Oklahoma area) & David Beckham (David Beckham Photography, Columbus, Ohio area).

Here, I will share some of the images I got from the learning shoots we did while there.  Amazing teachers, amazing models.  I encourage everyone to keep learning, no matter what industry you are in! 

 

Sydney was our model for the all white set in the studio.  She is flawless!

My cousin asked me to do some family photos for her so we snuck out one afternoon to get these done!

The Lindsey Family https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2017/4/the-lindsey-family This fall family session with the Lindseys was a dream.  We did this on the back side of their yard and we had some really pretty fall light and some nice little areas that made it look like we were somewhere else.  I have loved working with this family this past year (their daughter Hannah was one of my class of 2017 senior models).  They are one of the sweetest & kindest groups of people - and just really nice to be around!  Thank you for letting me capture some of these memories for you this year!

Josh & Ashley | After Wedding Session https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2017/3/josh-ashley-after-wedding-session Josh & Ashley had a quiet, small ceremony with only a few friends & family in attendance.  A few months later, we did an after wedding session on their farm.  I loved this so much!  And now that I'm no longer taking on weddings - this is a terrific option for any of you that might be interested!! ;)

It was gorgeous on their farm, but it was nice to really get to have some fun and relax and take our time getting some unique wedding images for them.

I've known both of these two for quite some time - Ashley since she was a very little girl (she isn't a blood relative - but her and her family are my family :) ) and I've known Josh since he was a young adult (he was a buddy of my brother's).

Congrats Josh & Ashley!!  So glad you had me do this for you!!

Alex & Samantha | Leitchfield Child Photographer https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2016/4/alexsamantha Alex & Samantha were the PERFECT little models for me the day we shot their session.  They didn't exactly want to be in front of the camera (well, I think Samantha was pretty much eating it up!! lol), but they sure did cooperate like superstars.  I love the sweet poses we got of them together!  Thanks you two for being so great to work with!

Brad, Tonya & Paisley | Leitchfield KY Photographer https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2016/4/bradtonyapaisley Brad & Tonya - dear friends of mine from way back -- 4th grade to be exact.  Love these two to pieces - sometimes I think their journey through life would be the PERFECT storyline for a sitcom  ;)  (Nothing but love, y'all!).  Really, though, they are an absolute hoot to be around and sweet, loving & kind as well. 

Hope y'all enjoy Brad & Tonya's session -- which might have turned out to be a little more about their 'baby', Paisley, than it was about them... lol.

They also hit the mark on clothing - so if you are needing some inspiration on what to wear for family photos - look here, because they nailed it!

Brystol | 8 months https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2016/2/brystol-8-months Meet Brystol.  The photos in this post are from Brystol's 8 month photo session, but the story here is about her journey in life. 

I shot this session on October 21, 2015 - exactly one year, to the day, after her parents discovered at a prenatal visit that she had a severe heart defect.  We didn't plan for the session to fall one year later, but ironically, it did. 

And, as I was writing this post I learned that February is Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) Awareness month.  Again, how ironic.  Or maybe not. 

BLOG-5451BLOG-5451

From the beginning, doctors informed Brystol's parents of what they should expect after she was born.  Her condition was very serious and the outlook was quite scary.  Below is a list of her diagnoses:

  • complete av canal complex
  • dextrocardia
  • heterotaxy
  • interrupted inferior vena cava
  • mixed anomalous pulmonary venous return
  • right ventricular hypertrophy
  • right sided aortic arch
  • ventricular septal defect

I have no idea what any of that means - except that her heart was very, very sick.

The doctors explained that they would probably have to do CPR on her, and she would mostly likely need immediate surgery for a pacemaker.  There was a 60% chance that she would be born with down syndrome.  They anticipated that she would need to be in the NICU for at least a month, maybe more.

BLOG-5455BLOG-5455 Brystol's heart rate was very low while she was in the womb.   A low heart rate was not a typical symptom of her heart condition.  The doctors cannot explain why it was low.  It should not have been based on the defects.  But because it was low, they were able to diagnose the heart problems early. 

The low heart rate can really only be explained as a blessing in disguise.  Had her heart rate not been abnormal, no one would have known there was a problem until she was born.

BLOG-5459BLOG-5459 After delivery, things didn't go quite as the doctors had expected.  Once she was born, her heart rate was NORMAL.  It had never been normal while she was in the womb, but as soon as she was born, it was.  No one has an explanation. 

She was blue after delivery and was put on oxygen for a few hours, and then her skin turned pink.  She didn't need CPR.  She didn't need immediate surgery for that pacemaker.  She wasn't a down syndrome baby.

BLOG-5479BLOG-5479

She was in the NICU only 4 days, not a month or more as they had previously thought.  She still had the heart defect, and would still need surgery, but very fortunately, they were able to wait on the surgery.  They wanted her to grow as big as they possibly could let her before they started the process of repairing her heart.

BLOG-5480BLOG-5480

The surgery was scheduled and then cancelled and rescheduled a few times.  She eventually had the first surgery when she was 7 months old. Before surgery, Brystol's heart was having to pump harder than it should have been, just to keep her blood circulating.  Her hands and feet were always cold because of bad circulation.  There was also pressure on her lungs and all of this was painful for her little body.   

BLOG-5488BLOG-5488 The doctors were not able to do everything they wanted to do in that first surgery, but what they were able to accomplish has eased her pain.  Her heart no longer has to work as hard, the pressure on her lungs is gone, and her circulation is much better.  Her hands and feet are warm now!

Brystol's journey is far from over.  She will need another surgery, most likely in about 3 or 4 years or whenever she starts showing signs that her body is stressed.

Everything that was predicted in the beginning, Brystol has surpassed.  Doctors are completely in awe and cannot believe she is doing so well.  Developmentally, other than her heart issues, she is right where she is supposed to be.

BLOG-5462BLOG-5462

Brystol has three big brothers who spoil her rotten and dote over her non-stop.  She adores them too.  The support for Brystol and her family has been amazing.  They can see and feel the love and support and are very grateful for every bit of it.

"Through this journey I have questioned so many times 'Why my baby? Why do I have to watch her go through these awful things?'.  It is not my place to question, even though it is hard not to.

God places you on these journeys for a reason.  I have held his hand many times and received his blessings numerous times.  One of the hardest things I have ever done was hand my baby to these people who I didn't even know and trust God that I would see her again.

Through all of this it has made our family stronger and me as a person stronger.  I enjoy every minute that I have been blessed to have with her.  I have seen things that no parent should ever have to see.  I have been blessed with friends and family that love us and support us.  Heart babies are truly amazing little people and have so much fight in them."

- Brystol's mom


I wanted to share with you an organization that has become very important to this family - a group affiliated with Kosair Children's Hospital, Brave Hearts is a support group for families with complex congenital heart defects.

Visit Brave Hearts website


I don't know why we scheduled this session on the anniversary of the original diagnoses for Brystol.  Or why I waited until now to write this (besides the fact that I'm a procrastinator) and that it just so happened to fall within the CHD Awareness month.  But deep down, I don't think all of that was really coincidence.  I've been given a platform that reaches a somewhat decent amount of people.  Big enough that it might matter to someone.  And for whatever reasons, I believe all the timing happened just as God had wanted.  And I'm so very grateful to be able to be a part of helping tell this little girl's story.

Brystol's one year session is coming up soon.  I'm very excited to get to photograph that big milestone in her life and then share it with all of you! 

I'm sure her family would appreciate all prayers for Brystol, as she still has a very tough road ahead.  Feel free to leave this family some encouragement and love in the comments here on the blog!  Much love to you all.

The Mahoney's | Fall Family session https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2016/2/the-mahoneys-fall-family-session The Mahoney's.  They were a really great group - full of life and energy (3 kids - about the same age as all mine - you have no choice but to have an every day existence that is full of life and energy ;) ).

We took some family photos down by the water at their lake house.  I had a blast, and caught myself thinking about my own crew of kids quite a few times during the session.  These days go by way too fast.  But the pictures of these days.... they live on along with our memories.  *sigh*  It might be time for me to get some family pictures of my own growing-too-fast group!

Thank you to the Mahoney family for letting me spend a little time with you ;)

Alice in Wonderland Themed Session https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2016/1/alice-in-wonderland-themed-session Alice in Wonderland - one of the magical movies of our childhood.  I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to do this photo session.  It was eclectic, colorful, mysterious.  So many things that are so much fun to capture in photos!  

My client went ALL out for this shoot.  She brought special made cookies, books, a clock (of course!), teapots & cups, and all kinds of other little trinkets.  I brought along a few of my props that I thought would work and we built an amazing little set for this shoot.  I was (and still am) very excited about the idea of this whole shoot.  Be sure to check it all out (there are a few surprises that I didn't mention).

I'm thinking this could be a good theme for a mini session sometime.  Anyone interested?

Leighton | 1 year old https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/11/leighton-1-year-old I loved the Tribal theme for Leighton's one year birthday photos - most of the props used for the session were also used for her birthday party.  Her mom & dad made the teepee (adorable!), mom made the headdress, her Mamaw baked and decorated the little teepee cake, and her Nana made her gray fringe outfit!  Super creative ideas and, of course, it all made for some really awesome and unique one year birthday photos!

Happy Birthday Leighton!

Sweet, sweet summertime! https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/10/sweet-sweet-summertime Sometimes I get the chance to work with a family again and again over the years - watching them grow up and change.  It's something I absolutely love to do - although it really does make the time seem to go by so fast - as I watch these kiddos grow up right in front of my eyes. 

The kids in these photos are a part of one of those families.  First off, they are super adorable - but even better they are such a joy to work with.  They have so much personality and I guess they've gotten used to me - because they just ham it up right off the bat ;)  Or maybe it's just in their DNA to be so personable :)  Either way, we've got some great images!

The Little Boy Who WALKS! https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/10/the-little-boy-who-walks Two years ago, I got the opportunity to share the story of an amazing, strong, determined little boy.  The baby boy who had little chance of ever having controlled muscle movement, turned into the little boy who smiles (read more about that here: http://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2013/8/the-little-boy-who-smiles), and who continues to beat all the odds.  He has become the little boy who WALKS, and who does so much more!  His life is a constant reminder to all of us that miracles really do happen.

The little boy's name is Korbyn, and he turned three this year.

blog_0905blog_0905

 

Korbyn continues to reach milestones the medical community thought he never would.  This little guy has a personality that I just cannot describe.  He is so happy and full of life - a little charmer of a guy, really.  But, he is also a typical three year old little boy - headstrong, independent, and possessing that 3-year old attitude that so many of us parents know all too well! 

 

blog_0902blog_0902

 

I have to say that I was deeply inspired by this little guy during the photo shoot.  About half way into our time together, we moved to an area in our local park with steps.  I watched as he was determined to get down a step.  It was extremely difficult for him, but he did not want help.  "I can do it", he told us.  My heart swelled with pride as I watched him conquer the challenge of getting down that step. 

It was so humbling to watch him as I could see the difficulty in that simple task, but at the same time I could see the determination he possessed to finish it independently.  He was not going to give up.  I think this is the story of his life so far - not giving up - and what an incredible message that is for all of us.   

 

blog_0903blog_0903

 

Some of Korbyn's recent milestones:

  • Walking - Korbyn began walking while holding on to things and using his gait trainer this past year.  He has only been walking on his own for about 6 months.  He first started like a bull-rider (one hand in the air).  This might have been because he was used to family holding his hands while walking and it made him feel more secure. 
  • Vocabulary - He speaks in complete sentences and even surprises family by singing songs on the radio!  
  • Dance - Korbyn LOVES to dance.  His favorite song is “Greased Lightning” because of the dance (he started doing this in the car seat with his hands only).
  • Snap - He learned to snap his fingers and he loves to incorporate it into his dance moves!
  • Climb - He loves to climb up the ladder to the slide!  He is now learning how to climb ONTO furniture from the floor.  He can get down without assistance but getting UP on the furniture is still a chore for him.
  • Korbyn’s favorite things to do:  vacuum, sweep, take out the trash, dance and FACETIME with his family! 

   blog_0904blog_0904
 

A few thing Korbyn is working on now:

  • Standing from a sitting position - While his confidence now allows him to bend his knees while standing (to reach something on the floor that he dropped), he still cannot go from sitting to standing without using his arms (pulling up on something or holding someone’s hand). 
  • Jumping - Korbyn can jump if you hold his hands but cannot jump without assistance.
  • Climbing UP - onto furniture, beds, etc.

 

blog_0901blog_0901
 
There is that crazy, big smile!
 
blog_0906blog_0906
 
I saw that Korbyn started preschool this week.  I am so excited for Korbyn in this new journey.  Best of luck to you little man!  And best of luck to all of his family - I'm sure it's a hard transition - bittersweet.  I can't wait to see what this year holds for him!  And, thank you, for once again allowing me to document a little bit of his extraordinary life in pictures.

Summertime Pageant | Caleb https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/9/summertime-pageant Meet Caleb.  He's four - and he has a LOT of personality.  He lives on a chicken farm, he'll talk your ear off if you let him, and he is quite a little charmer.  The main purpose for this session was to create photos for submission to the photogenic categories of the Amerifest National Pageant.  A few of the photos needed to be themed with 'Kentucky Heritage' - so we decided on using bluegrass instruments for our props (have I ever mentioned that I just LOVE bluegrass music??).  Caleb was in the pageant this past July and did remarkably well.

Check out his list of wins!!!:

  • boys cover model for the program book (photogenic category)
  • Little Mr. National Photogenic (photogenic category)
  • Spokesperson Award - he gave a 2 minute speech about chicken farming (how adorable that must have been!)
  • Outstanding Sponsorship Award
  • 2nd runner up out of 14 boys

Congrats little man!

8 months | Baby boy https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/9/8-months-baby-boy Watching a baby grow throughout their first year is really so much fun.  And getting to capture it?  It really feels like an honor almost.  They are only little once - and I get to document the way they change in looks, the milestones they've achieved, and sometimes a glimpse at a few little white teeth as they begin to poke through.  I love getting this opportunity - and I so enjoy watching them change.

This little 8 month old guy is an absolute doll!  Porcelain skin, blue eyes and strawberry blond hair.  And then there is his smile!  Melts you.  Looking forward to his one year photo shoot coming up soon!

The 'S' Family https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/8/the-s-family This sure was a great group of people to work with.  We were planning on an outdoor shoot, but the weather just turned crummy on us that day.  So, we made the best of it and moved all the furniture in this family's living room and turned it into our little studio for the morning.  Lots of smiles from this bunch, but I think the group of little ones might have stole the show ;)  Enjoy!

One Year Old! | Baby Girl https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/8/one-year-old-baby-girl I love to see how different babies are - and by the time they turn one, it's usually pretty clear what type of personality they have.  Some are quiet and reserved... others... well, they are full of independence and personality.  This little girl fits that last one - she has all kinds of personality and it really shines through in some her one year photos.  I think she was a little shy at first - but then she warmed up and gave us some PRECIOUS expressions... enjoy!

Baby Girl | 4 months old https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/7/baby-girl Babies!  Four months is such a big age.  Babies are starting to form their own personalities - lots of smiles and fun expressions just starting to come out at this age.  Look at this sweet girl!  Her thumb even found it's way into her mouth (totally cute photo there...).  Hope you enjoy!

Katlyn + Justin | Married! https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/7/katlyn-justin-married Katlyn & Justin are sweethearts - high school sweethearts, to be exact - but more than that, they are a really happy, easy going, fun and genuinely SWEET couple.  They enjoy hunting and spending time with their nieces, family & friends.  It didn't take long for me to feel like I had known them for years.  

Their wedding day was absolutely gorgeous.  Every detail was just breathtaking.  The wedding and reception were held at the beautiful Cason's Cove.  This venue is truly magical, nestled into the secluded country hills of Kentucky.

Thank you for allowing me to spend the day with both of you along with your families and friends.  I loved getting the opportunity to document your very special day.  Many wishes for an extra happy future together!

Sydney + Zach | Married! https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/6/sydney-zach-married Wedding images are harder than any other to go through for a blog post.  I want to include too many, every time.  Wedding photography really lets you tell a story - from start to finish - it's everything about the day.  How do I leave anything out?  As a result, wedding posts usually include lots of pictures ;)  

Sydney and Zach - one of THE sweetest couples ever.  They are just nice people - and such a cute couple.  The wedding day included fighting with the wind and rain - but it didn't stop us from getting some amazing images.  The wedding and reception decor all had a vintage feel (check out the old Polaroid!).  And there was a really small mishap that I just had to document in a few images.... Zach kind of forgot to shave that day (I'm thinking he was just too excited) ... so one of his buddies ran out for some shaving supplies and brought them back to the church.  I'm not even sure if Sydney knows that this happened.  We kept it a secret from her - no reason to stress out the bride!  And hey - it made for a couple of really fun images!

Everybody at this wedding was great - at the end of the day, I really felt like I'd known them all forever!  Congrats to you both.  Best wishes for a long, happy life together!

Sweet Little Girl https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/5/sweetlittlegirl There really is something neat about watching a person grow.  In this case, I've watched the sweet lady in these photos grow from a young and free-spirited person into a really grounded, responsible and proud mama.  Not that responsible mama's can't be free-spirited ;)  I know she still possesses some of those fun traits, too.  But to see the amazing transformation in a woman when she becomes a mother.  The unexplainable, undeniable love that just beams from her.  It is absolutely precious - and it makes me so proud of this new mama ;)  

Congrats to all on this sweet little girl - I know she is the light of your lives!

Baby Bear is ONE! https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/5/baby-bear-is-one Yep - so this little guy turned one... actually this happened before the first of the year (I'm still a little behind on the blog)... one year of watching him grow and getting to document it every couple of months... really makes the year go by quickly, let me tell ya!  

We've got a few traditional shots - and then instead of a cake smash, we did a paint session... that was super fun and messy ;)  but isn't making messes one of the best parts of being a one-year-old?

A Shelby, Chucks, and Two Awesome Chicks https://www.michellemcmillan.com/blog/2015/5/a-shelby-chucks-and-two-awesome-chicks These two.  They always keep me on my toes.  I know when Tyra calls me up that I better get ready for an adventure ;)  It's always fun, always creative, and always unique.  This year Tyra and her daughter wanted some photos for their Christmas card with a Shelby G.T. 500 .  They wore Chuck's and sported Elvis and Beatles t-shirts.  

I really had to step outside my box with lighting (soft portrait lighting just wasn't going to cut it for this shoot!).  It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed doing something different.  

If any of you know these two, I know that you can relate to their crazy, wild, fun and carefree attitudes.  Precious, awesome, gems, these two ;)

Hope y'all enjoy!
