COLOR COLOR COLOR! Looking through my closet, I think I own every neutral color under the sun. Luckily, neutrals are the easiest clothes to spruce up with a pop of color and make for my favorite kind of ensemble. Whether you are adding a fun pair of shoes to a solid dress or a statement […]

Meet Allie from Johnston High School. I had the privilege of taking her senior photos about a year and a half ago – Class of 2014. I’ve been friends with Allie’s family for quite awhile. We’ve spent many summers watching her younger brother and my youngest son play baseball together! Shortly after taking Allie’s Senior pictures […]

  • Senior Fashion Style » Des Moines Senior Photography | High School Senior Pictures - […] Looking through my closet, I think I own every neutral color under the sun. Luckily, neutrals are the easiest clothes to spruce up with a pop of color and make for my favorite kind of ensemble. Whether you are adding a fun pair of shoes to a solid dress or a statement necklace to just a plain t shirt, you really can’t go wrong. Adding a fun lip color to a monochromatic outfit could not be more perfect either. So many options! My favorite way to add a pop of color is by always having my nails painted a bright color. My favorite nail polish is OPI’s Cajun Shrimp. I think it goes with almost every color and adds the perfect polished touch to every outfit! However you’ll want to keep the nails on the neutral side for your actual Senior Photo Session. You don’t want to distract from your awesome eyes/face! XOXO — Emily Tobin (Check out Emily’s Story here.) […]

So happy I was able to do a quick photo shoot of my daughter and some of her friends before they headed to college last fall. Best things about high school are the friends that you make. Even though they were headed to different colleges (mostly), I know they will remain friends especially with how […]
