Here's a preview of a senior photo session I had with Ilaria, an Italian foreign exchange student at Vinton-Shellsburg. Our original appointment turned out to be on a rainy day, so the shoot was rescheduled. The day of our rescheduled session was really cold, and it snowed! So appropriate for Ilaria though, being that she is a downhill competitive skier back in Italy! Ilaria was a trooper and stuck out the chilly weather to capture some amazing images. You can't even tell she's freezing! It was really difficult to choose just a few to share...what a beauty!

I added some texture to these the combination with the tracks and Ilaria's bright purple sweater!

Thanks Ilaria. I had so much fun at our session, and am so glad to have met you!


  1. Some GREAT Shots!! I love the RR tracks - what a great job you did with a beautiful subject!

  2. These are great! The purple sweater is a great color for the photos.

    Also, I LOVED(!) your Christmas card. It was beautiful.
