Maddy Cloud | Florida State University| 2017| College Senior Session

What happens when you combine style & beauty with a charming personality?  You get Maddy!  She is one of the cutest gals!  Her personality is as large as life and from the time we met her (years ago), to now, she has always been so much fun to be around!  So, you can only imagine how honored we were when she asked us to photograph her for her Senior Shoot...um...her College Senior Shoot!  What?!!! She just recently graduated from FSU!!!

We knew she would show up lookin gorgeous, so we had to find the perfect backdrop.  Fortunately, we had some sweet friends who recently purchased some new property in our charming little small town of Monticello, and when we scoped it out, we knew this was it!!!  Then when Maddy showed up in this gown, we were just short of shrieking!!! EEK!!!

So who is this girl anyway?  Well, she just happens to be the youngest of 3...all girls...and comes from an amazing family!  Her parents are some of the sweetest people we know...always so overly generous and so kind.  And we have had the honor of photographing her sisters' weddings as well!  We have had a lot of fun getting to know her a bit more at the weddings and especially at her Senior Session!

Maddy is an amazing writer (with her own blog) and a fashion-lover (as if you couldn't tell). To say she is talented, doesn't begin to do her justice either.  She is a sweetheart with such a zest for life and to top it all off, this girl adores her family!  Can it get any better than that?

We are so excited for you, Maddy, as you take on the world! We know you have big dreams and won't be stopped at anything until you reach your goals!  Congratulations on being a recent Florida State University Graduate!!!  (Go Noles!!!) And thanks for letting us be a small part of your new adventure! We loved every crazy minute of it (including helping you climb a huge rock mountain in that epic dress...all just to get the perfect photo! Ha-ha. You're a champ!).    Keep on dreaming and reaching for the stars!  You're destined for great things!

Enjoy the journey,

Allen & Carol

Micah Joyner | Chiles High School | 2017 Senior Session | Tallahassee Florida

This girl here is one of the strongest girls we know!  We have known her since she was an infant & its been so amazing watching her grow up!  Through gymnastics,  surgeries and many other challenges, she has stayed strong...trusting the Lord thru each situation.  We are so proud of her and so excited to highlight her on our blog and celebrate her! We can't wait to see where life takes her.  

She has already done incredible things, including graduating Cum Laude from Lawton Chiles High School in May of this year and winning the distinguished Lawton Chiles award! In addition, she came in first runner up for the District's Best and Brightest Recognition in the Public Speaking category. WOW!!!

Most of all, we are impressed by her character! She always has a sweet spirit and beautiful smile no matter what she is facing. Her strength and joy truly come from the Lord.

Great things await this sweet gal!

Congratulations Micah Joyner! We are rooting for you!

Cole | Class of 2017 | Tallahassee Senior Photographer | Chiles High School

You don't want to miss this!!!  These are definitely some of our favorite Senior photos thus far!  What an honor it was to be able to photograph this senior, who attends Chiles High School and plays football for them as well! (Go Timberwolves!) 

Allen was especially excited about this shoot, as he had some super cool ideas and couldn't wait to experiment with chalk dust and lights! What?!ย  And Cole was the perfect senior to work with for Allen's creativity!ย  We loved working with him!ย  From beginning to end, he was a natural!ย  He was super relaxed and never seemed to tire of Allen's crazy (and awesome, if I may say ;-)ย  ideas! And it paid off!ย   We always consider it a privilege to photograph Seniors...knowing this is the end of a season in their lives and the beginning of many new adventures!ย  We can't wait to see what adventures lie ahead for Cole, as he graduates in 2017! We believe he's going to do great things in the future!ย

The photos below show when the fun really began!    Keep on scrolling!  This is when we were so grateful that Cole is a patient and chilled guy to put up with all the lighting changes and hold the poses for what probably seemed like an eternity. He nailed it!

Great job, Cole!  Adventures Await!
