Wow! I love how they turned out. The kids must be so pleased. What a day your first borns prom. He looks fabulous and very cool. He could be on the cover on GQ. The photo of them on the bridge kissing and the one of them kicking up their heels are stunning. They could right of of a photo shoot of the coolest magazines out there.
The cool guys shot is another winner.
How does Ross like them?
Cali looks like an awesome girl. I hope they had a great prom.
Take care,

Oh my goodness, those prom photos were awesome. I took photos of my nephews and girlfriends at their prom and wish now I was more creative, (although, all the kids I take photos of are not as adventurous as your son). I thought I did pretty well, thanks to your photography class in Jan-Mar I took.

Well I am taking Prom pics later on today...gosh I hope mine are half this good...Those are awesome!


Hi Karen....I wanted to let you know that you inspired me to try and take some fun shots of my son's prom last night. Here is a link of the photos I posted on my blog today. If you have a spare minute (ha!), please come take a look. If I could afford it, I'd sign up for your online class in a heartbeat because I so admire your work!!! Thank you for all you do to inspire all of us. You rock!


you totally rocked this!! I followed you from a stamping/card making blog and she is right- you rock!!!
These will make a great book!!! Have you seen the books you can make with your photography- these are something worth putting in a collection like that!
Off to see more of your blog and work :) and to add you to my favorites to check out :)
Have a super Monday!

lovely images! Lisa Hall is my mom and I've just fallen in love with you, your family, and your wonderful talent! I am starting a photography business in Los Angeles and haven't been happier. If you don't mind, what ISO and aperture were you using?

Suzie Q.

These are absolutely FABULOUS!!! That's why you are my IDOL ;-D

Love the last pic. And ALL of the ones on the RR tracks are beautiful!

Katie Gonzalez

Oh, I wish these were MY prom photos. The lighting and compositions are breathtaking. I love how natural they look. How wonderful for them to have these images!!!


these are simple AWE-SOME! well worth a prom gig, and totally what most kids I know would prefer.. rock it, and don't under estimate yourself... AWE-SOME!


found you through WHATEVER.and HOLY MOLY! These are beyond OUTRAGEOUS! Going to send your link to my neiee who is going to the prom in a week! FANTASTIC! And your son is adorable. They are all adorable.


I wish my prom pictures looked like that! Very cool!


Hello! I stumbled across this blog post, and as a senior in high school preparing for my own prom in just a few weeks, I have to say these photos are remarkable! So creative, and everyone looked so beautiful/handsome! They're certainly memories that these friends would like to hold on to.


Okay, I'm balling like a baby. My boys are now grown. You did a beautiful job with thier prom photos. It looks like a spread from Vogue. Ross is a natural and the ones of he and Cali are heartbreakingly beautiful. Enjoy the little moments you get with him at this point in his life because it just flys by and then there is a gaping hole in your heart...okay, I know I'm a bit of a freak, but I wasn't ready for that at all. I thought when my baby graduated and I was 42, I was going to chase some dreams at breakneck speed. I sort of had a wee bit of a break down, crying all of the time and wishing they were little and I could have a do over. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful milestone in Ross' life.
