TruYou Newborns – Marion, IA

I love photographing newborns and I love it even more when it’s a family member. This little sweetie is my great-niece.

So thankful when family trusts me with their precious babies!

Meet sweet little Allana.

And so does someone else! The family dog managed to get in an image.

Such a little sweetheart with a big sister who is a sweetheart too!


What a gorgeous little one!

TruBeauty Fine Art Portraiture – Glamour Photography, Marion, Cedar Rapids, IA

You are beautiful.

You are amazing.

You are one-of-a-kind.

With everything you do for everyone else, when was the last time you did something for yourself?

TruBeauty sessions were created just for that. A chance to “Celebrate You”. A chance to experience some pampering for a day. A chance to create some amazing images for your loved ones — images of you — that they can cherish for a lifetime!

You need to exist in photographs. You need to leave a legacy. You need to celebrate your relationships. You need heirloom quality artwork of you and your family.

What are you waiting for?

Parker – Class of 2019 – LinnMar High School

Parker opted for the Urban Session so we headed to downtown Marion. There are a ton of opportunities for amazing images in the alleys, sidewalks and other areas of our small little city.

He brought his A-game!

I get a Danny Zuko from “Grease” vibe here!

And maybe a little James Dean here!

Have a great senior year Parker. And I’m quite confident you will have a fantastic future!

And thanks to everyone who visits this blog!

Spooky Halloween Shoot – October 2018

This is an annual fun photo shoot for TruYou Photography. Every year I somehow manage to convince a victim person to model for these images and we have a little fun with a Halloween-styled shoot.

This year I chose Brooklyn and she was amazing! We went with a “just-look-spooky” theme!

We had so many fantastic ones I had a difficult time choosing which ones to retouch and feature here.

My favorite color is blue so it shows up a lot in my creative work!

I believe I told her to just stare at me in a spooky manner. It worked! I’m scared!

I know, right? She was fantastic!

 

And this one is my favorite!

Don’t worry, she isn’t even close to being this scary. She was so much fun to work with and she and her mom were absolute delights!

Thanks so much to her and her mom for spending an hour with me (and the massive swarms of mosquitoes!) I think it was worth it!

If you are a member of the class of 2019 and interested in information about senior imagery by TruYou Photography & Design – please visit the information page. There are still a few sessions open in October and November.
