Meet Ezekiel — Class of 2019, future zoologist, future stand-up comedian, and the next Bob Dylan.

Just kidding about the latter two, although he could definitely be a successful comedian — he’s hilarious. And although he doesn’t actually play guitar, he pulled off a stellar faux platinum album cover with the guitar. He said he’s always joking with his friends and pretending he can play guitar, so he facetiously wanted a guitar included in his senior pictures. Which we thought was hilarious! However, if you presumed Ezekiel is musically illiterate — you’d be wrong. He is quite the drummer on the worship team at church.

Ezekiel would love to become a zoologist, as we learned of his passions while at the zoo during his senior photography. He also volunteers regularly at the zoo, and a few of his favorite animals include the grizzly bears, the polar bears, and the seals. He was especially fond of 5-year-old Kali, the 1,000-pound polar bear rescued from Alaska (And, yes, he even knows the names of animals and their stories!!).

We’re excited to see where this handsome young man’s ambition takes him in life, and we were especially grateful for the opportunity to photograph his senior portraits!

Congratulations, Ezekiel!

Much Love,

Smile often. Think positively. Give thanks. Laugh loudly. Love others. Dream big.

Meet Grace.

She’s fit, she’s fun, she’s sweet, and always has a smile on her face! Grace loves riding and jumping horses, and also participates in horse shows! She’s the middle sibling of three sisters, all relatively close in age. In fact, we shot Grace’s older sister Emma’s senior portraits just over a year ago as Class of 2018!

Grace will soon be leaving the nest as a Class of 2019 graduate to begin a new chapter in life. Although her parents may have a tough time letting their second beautiful daughter go, Grace is every bit of charged and ready to take on whatever life throws her way.

We had a blast with Grace and her mom, Kelly, shooting Grace’s senior portraits in Forest Park, St. Louis. We covered a lot of ground in just a couple hours, from the Grand Basin to the Muny. Thank God for the perfect weather!

Grace, we’re so excited to see you grow in the coming years. So Congratulations, and here’s to Class of 2019!

Much Love,

Tiffany & Chris // Amber Mark Photography

“Oh, they’re going!!!” screamed Meghan’s mom as Meghan dove out of the way of a flock of geese.

There were many hilarious moments during Meghan’s senior portrait session at Faust Park in Chesterfield, Missouri. At first, Meghan seemed shy, but by the end she was cracking jokes and striking sassy poses! 💁🏼‍♀️✨

We thought it was great that Meghan’s family came out for support, but we aren’t sure Meghan thought so! “Eww!” she’d say when we’d tell her look over at her parents. Of course, this was all in fun spirit, as she seems close to her awesome little family. ❤️ Her mom was super excited for her session and helped us make sure that her hair and necklace were in the right place, as it was a pretty windy day!

When Meghan isn’t getting attacked by geese, you can probably catch her doing one of a handful of favorite activities, including reading, writing stories, climbing trees, eating spaghetti, or flying down the basketball court on a fast break. She also plays piano and clarinet and is a drum major at Orchard Farm High School, where she’ll be graduating as Class of 2019! Such a busy lady!

We had fun hanging with Meghan and her family during her senior session, but they couldn’t wait to get home for spaghetti night! 🍝 Meghan’s favorite!

Congratulations, Meghan! We’re super excited to see where you go in life! Good luck with your biology studies! ✨

Much Love,

Let new adventures begin!

PART 2

| Southwestern High School | Piasa, IL |

| 2018 |

Remember Lexy? Our athletic senior that nailed poses at Willoughby Heritage Farm like it was her job?

Well she’s back.

And her bow and camo say she’s not messing around.

Just kidding. It’s just a blog post! Have no fear; Lexy is amazing. (Unless you are the hunted!). Note to the guys trying to date Lexy — fair warning. Her dad, Jeff, maaaaay intimidate you. (Just kidding! He’s a big teddy bear!) Truly, Lexy is a gem and will make a man very lucky one day. Jeff and Missi, you’ve raised yet another amazing girl.

As we mentioned in her first blog post, Lexy is so talented and busy, she needed TWO senior sessions to capture all of her hobbies! We shot Lexy’s second session at Piasa Southwestern High School, where she’ll be graduating as Class of 2019. As you can tell, she loves the outdoors and bow hunting, but is just as excited to be in a Piasa Birds uniform spiking volleyballs or dribbling down the basketball court.

Congratulations again, Lexy!

Lexy: Class of 2019 | Senior Portraits at Willoughby Heritage Farm

We love seniors for many reasons. The obvious: they’re sweet, fun, hip, and more fashionable than us. And they’re at the intersection of high school and deciding how they’re going to make their mark on the world.

In a few months, Lexy will be doing just that after graduating from Southwestern High School — GO PIASA BIRDS!

We visited Willoughby Heritage Farm in Collinsville, Illinois for her first senior session — the same location we shot her sister’s wedding (Lauren) in September 2016! And yes, you read that correctly … this senior is such a talented and busy lady that she needed TWO senior sessions to capture all of her hobbies!

“Whoa, whoa, whoa… what’s a Piasa Bird?” you ask? Well, just take a gander at this giant creature (link provided). Legend has it, “The Piasa” hunted along the bluffs of the Mississippi River near Alton, Illinois during the time of the Illiniwek Indians. (Don’t worry, Chief Ouatoga devised a plan to slay the dragon.)

Anyway, back to our feature senior. Here’s to Class of 2019, Lexy!!! You’re about the conquer the world.

Don’t forget! This is just Part One! Catch Part Two coming soon!

Much Love,

Tiffany Amber & Christopher Mark
