  • Senior Models

    Anna Pociask Photography, LLC Senior ModelsThis is the heartbeat of my business. And a big reason I do a full blown out senior shoot out is to get to know more teens in my area. I truly hope these girls will always remember this day and take away with them an experience they take captive and never forget, so on those crummy days when they may want to believe the lies of the mirror, they remember how beautiful they truly are. My prayer is to impact one girl at a time that their imperishable beauty comes from having a gentle and quiet spirit. I love working with seniors and giving them a unique photoshoot that screams their name.

In 1998 my parents laid the foundation for this beautiful Irish Garden shed, but, as we all know life gets busy and other priorities get put before our dreams. My parents dreamed up a beautiful Irish Garden shed, and knew one day they would have…as my mom mentioned, “a work of love for gardening and wanting something to go with that love” I’m not gonna lie, my parents yard is basically like walking in the Botanic Gardens, and this Irish Garden shed just adds that much more beauty. My dad and brother run a very successful landscaping and design business out of Bonne Terre, Mo, so having an immaculate yard is not much surprise. So, while your at, you should go check out their work: Murphy Landscaping Design

When I drive home, I love coming down the long gravel road to all the new design my parents have put together to make their home welcoming. And now this added touch of the Irish Garden shed not only makes for a great spot for pictures, it shows the labor of love my parents put to make it happen, and finish it, TOGETHER.

My parents are now accepting inquiries–so if  you are interested please call:

John Murphy 573-518-4753

Karon Murphy 573-518-4752 or 573-358-7919

Each log was placed on mortar, you basically need two people to do it, one at a time. However, my dad is a work horse and was doing it by himself most of the time.:)But, don’t let my mom fool you, she was right in there helping him too! If only you could have seen the work in progress pictures, my mom has those.;)Everything is red cedar, and it smells soooo good when you walk inside it!

the finished project is absolutely beautiful!!!

 

I snapped a few pics of the workers right before my momma was leaving for work. You would never be able to tell my dad is 60 and my momma is 56.:)I give them all the glory, well and God of course, when it comes to my talent with my photography business.:)

Please pin these pictures and share to spread the word of this amazing Irish Garden Shed you can now have in your own back yard!!:)

4 years ago we may all remember that Michael Phelps won the most gold medals ever in Olympic history on August 17, 2008…but, this momma remembers while bringing my daughter into the world the very moment Phelps won that 8th gold medal…I remember very vividly the nurse telling me, he won!!!. And me breathing flames of fire back at her….I don’t care!:)Abigail had a full head of dark brown hair, if you can believe that! She has kept me busy, kept me accountable with my actions, and has kept me loving life that much more.

Last year I began a series of questions that I will ask her every year at her birthday. Her answers always surprise me.

1. How old are you? 4

2. What is your favorite color? pink (I wonder when this will change, or if it will ever)

3. Who is your best friend? momma dear ( I promise I did not pinch her to tell me that);)

4. What do you want to be when your all grown up? Go to school (that’s a whole other blog post in its self)

5. What is your favorite movie? Curious George

6 What is your favorite book? The bible (love this)

7. What makes you happy? When I play outside at Nana and Papa’s house.

8. What makes you sad? When I get a spanking

9. What is your most favorite food to eat? chicken and fries

10. What is  your favorite song to sing? Gods not dead

11. What game do you like to play? CHASE!!

And here is to my daughters 4 yr angelic photoshoot. I just wanted white surrounding her, and for her big blue eyes to sparkle…and that is exactly what happened. And actually she was not feeling good this day when we did these pics, but she will do anything for ice cream.:)

For all who are wondering where her outfit is from– DollCake Clothing

This senior session was special–it was on her 18th birthday!!

And wow, did she blow me away with how comfortable she was in front of the camera.

Posing seniors has become my new obsession. They are always up to a challenge and wanting to stand out from the crowd. Oh seniors–I heart you.

Which are your favorite images and why?
