12 Tips for Amazing & Unique Senior Pictures

What is the most important thing High School seniors want from their senior portraits?

Well, if there's one thing we've learned from photographing nearly 700 high school seniors at our studio in the past 10 years, it's that seniors want photos that are unique and stand out from other kids at their school.

The rest of the story!

Several of you have commented on how cute Zane and Zoe were in their 3-year/9-month photos that we posted earlier this week.  While we appreciate all the doting, we didn’t want you to think that the photo shoot was all Peaches ‘n’ Cream.  In fact, I think my children are the hardest subjects to shoot. […]


My Little Models – Zane and Zoe

Zoe turned 9-months old yesterday (and Zane turned 3 a little over a month ago) so we took the kids into the studio and did a quick photo shoot with them.  They’re growing like little weeds.  Here are a few favorites from Zane and Zoe’s photo shoot today.  


Halloween at the Zahner’s

Halloween has a whole new meaning when you have kids.  I mean really, let’s admit it.  We get WAYYY more out of this dressing-up-your-kids business than they do.  Zane doesn’t want to wear his costume and Zoe is too little to care.  But it sure is fun as parents to get them dressed up and […]


“I like Tampons!”

Well . . . I (me, Tyson, personally) don’t necessarily like Tampons, but apparently, my 2-year old son does. It is true that kids do, in fact, say the darnedest things.  Yesterday, Zane came across some of mommy’s er . . . uhm . . . feminine products, and he says, “What are these, Mommy?” To which Rachel replies, “Those […]


Father Forgets

Today . . . something completely unrelated to photography. When you have children, I think somehow the heart grows exponentially.  I am not usually (and never really have been) the emotional type, but today I stumbled across an article that really touched me.  I was reading it out loud to my wife, Rachel, and all […]


Look out Ladies! Here comes Zane Zahner!

My cousin, Kevin and his wife JoAnna are in this weekend from Oklahoma and we did quick photo shoot with them and their 16-month old, Melanie this morning. Below are a few favorites from their session.  (I hope the first picture in this sequence isn’t foretelling my son’s future attempts to pick up the ladies). […]


Zane’s bedtime routine

I know I haven’t posted much personal/family stuff recently so here’s a chance to catch you up a bit.  I won’t bore you with all the details but Zane has just been too cute lately.  Something tells me he’s going to be the class clown and the star of the school play. Every night when […]


Zane is a year and a half old!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted any pictures of Zane on the blog and I feel terrible.  (I’m like the mechanic who doesn’t fix his own car).  We’ve just been so busy taking pictures of other people, we haven’t made time for pictures of Zane . . . well . . . […]


He’s Zane Alexander Zahner – Officially!

We went to court today to finalize Zane’s adoption and it is finally complete.  The judge signed the papers and he is 100% officially our son (not that he wasn’t our son before . . . but you know . . . now it’s official! with paperwork and everything). This is a picture of us […]


Zane is 1 year old!

It’s amazing how fast one year can go.  As I write this, it’s hard to believe that exactly 12 months ago we were running around the house trying to get things together for our son’s arrival.  Jan. 19 this year has been a much more calm and relaxed day than it was in 2008.  We […]
