Allissa ~ Bettendorf Prom Photography

A couple days ago I had a chance to hang out with Allissa, who is excited beyond words about her junior year prom this coming Saturday. The Bettendorf teen has been busy preparing for the big day, amidst juggling school and work and friends and well… the dramas of high school life I’m sure we all remember (or don’t want to remember) all too well.

I got to her parents’ home and asked to start shooting in Allissa’s bedroom – not necessarily where I usually start each session, but in this case I know a girl’s usually most comfortable where she lives (or hides) the most. The first couple sets were shot on her bed before we moved to the den area.

I had met Allissa before and remembered thinking she looks just like her mom, Lynn, who owns a respectable wedding floral business. Allissa was also used to being photographed – her aunt is a photographer in Omaha – and well, has a beautiful presence about her that is carefree and fun.

Not to mention she thought of me as funny. Kudos to you, Allissa, for laughing when I told you to. Goodness knows what you would’ve done if I started shooting while doing yoga poses.

At this point we headed to Duck Creek Park, and oh… if you haven’t been lately the flowers there are GORGEOUS…

We ended with a shot of her and Blake, who will accompany Allissa to Saturday’s event. .. and of course, no shoot would’ve been complete without a view of her fancy footwear.

I can’t wait to see Allissa again on Saturday and meet her friends! Good times!
