On July 24, 2017, Terri and I met up with Katelyn Rakers and her mom Dana Rakers. I've take hundreds of pictures of Katelyn playing softball but never any portraits. We met at Chance Gardens and took advantage of the flowers and other scenery. We then to various spots in uptown Centralia. We finished at the ball field to showcase Katelyn's softball prowess.
We had a great time and feel we got many nice shots. Along with Katelyn's senior pictures, Dana took advantage of the Prepaid Sports Plan as well. With the plan, the Rakers will have lots of pictures to choose from!

On July 20th, Terri and I traveled to Salisbury to meet up with the extended Humphrey family. It was very warm and muggy so we stayed in the shade for the pictures (when we weren't in the AC cooling off). We did multiple smaller groups with individual families, some close ups of a young one for canvas wall art, and some large group shots as well.
Despite the heat, we had a wonderful time with the Humphrey clan and I think we ended up with some great family portraits! Click HERE to view more samples of their photo session.
For the 2016-2017 school year, I worked with eight Centralia seniors. However, in addition to those eight Centralia students, I worked with five seniors from neighboring communities. Those five non-Centralia seniors were from Columbia (1), Hallsville (2), and Cairo (2). For the collages, I put Paige Kempker in with the Centralia kids since she grew up in Centralia close friends with my daughter, Mary.
Here are the 2017 seniors that T. Motley Photography worked with:
In 2016, I worked with nine more seniors. All nine were Centralia High School seniors. One senior (Romine) had an extended session to maximize his photo options. Another senior (Stephens) was a younger sibling of a previous client. Here are the nine seniors for the class of 2016:
After working with six seniors in 2013-2014, I took on nine 2015 seniors. All nine seniors attended Centralia High School. Two seniors (Jerome and Monroe) had a two-part session to maximize their photo options. These are the nine seniors for 2015:
