Tamia's Prom {Philadelphia Photography}


 Wasn't Tamia just the most beautiful girl ever for her prom?

 She is lovely.

She has the best personality.


 Wishing her every happiness as she graduates this year.
God has big things in store for her!

 What was your dress like for your prom?


I didn't go to a prom.
I went to a banquet. 
I had to ask the boy...



 My dress was VERY nice.
As far as the plus size choices went ; )




I don't know if I will ever finish editing pictures.
I took over 2,000 on Friday and Saturday.

She positively glows... beautiful!!

Our prom was a joke --all the lights were turned on at 12 midnight and we were hustled home. But we did have fun and have happy memories of it. =)

Oh Becky - I LOVE these images. You captured her in such perfect light. I love the one where she's looking up. Perfection.

Did you say 2,000? Yikes. May the spirit be with you!

Absolutely beautiful!!

Danyelle said...

She is stunning. I love her bright pink dress and wrap too.

I went to a few proms in high school and wore a black dress to all but one. I grew up in super small town though so our proms were one step above what might have been allowed in the town of Foot Loose.

That is a lot of photos! She is beautiful...she looks sooo happy! I hope they had a really wonderful time!
My first prom dress was pretty cool...mermaid style, and metallic purple. :) The second one was a little more...poufy. haha I liked the first one a lot.

Susan said...

Oh my...you got some incredible shots!!

Loved each one.

I know she must of loved these too♥

Tamar SB said...

She looks lovely! The pink is so bright and vibrant, just like her personality seems to be! I didn't have a prom either, I went to a very small Jewish private school and prim with 13 seniors would have been, well lame!

Linking up again!

Becky, you are an artist at capturing the 'essence' of the soul in an individual.

Beautiful young lady! I never went to Prom...I went to a senior banquet with friends but nothing like a Prom...I blame it on my bad perm and braces!

Amy said...

Never got to go to prom either, banquets yes:) We have 2 going to the prom in our house this year, May 28! I'll be kept busy with my camera, that's for sure:)

Allison Hoffman said...

OMG!! 2000 pictures. I'm feeling complete overwhelmed with the 300 I took. I can't even begin to think how you go through that many at once!!

I went to 3 proms, and i saved all my dressed, they are now being dissected and reconstructed into american girl doll dresses for my girls - they love it!!

kimmyskids said...

She's radiant! What lovely shots and memories.

Puna said...

She is beautiful! I love looking at prom photos! My mother made my dress and it was really very pretty. I loved it. I wish I still had it. I'll go ahead and link to my son's prom photos . . . I see you've started a fun linky.

Raymonde said...

Not in our culture, never been to a prom myself, but make sure my children had memorable outfits and a good time.

Raymonde said...

Love the photos and wondering how to go about editing 2000?!

Lisa said...

She is stunning!!! Stunning I tell you!!! It's such a great time of year; Proms, weddings and graduations. I love it!!!

My son Matthew went to the prom 2 weeks ago, was in a wedding last weekend of an old girl friend...((He was not the groom thank God! :) )) and will be graduating from my little home school this year. :(

Becky, how do you home school for 10 years and then send a kid off to college??? He has scholarships so I have too and he is very smart... I knew I never should have taught him to read! Then I would be in this situation!!! LOL!

How could it be ~ these kids grow up so fast when we didn't?

Tell Tamia to slow down!!! and congratulations!!! She is beautiful...inside and out. I know she will set the world on fire.

Skeller said...

do you know, I never went to a high school prom? but if I had, and if I'd been even half as pretty as Tamia, I would have been one happy girl. very pretty pictures, Becky!! (love how you used all that purple glowy light at the get-ready place).

Dominique @Dominique's Desk said...

Lovely prom pics.. I didn't go to any prom as when I was in high school there wasn't any.

Kelsie said...

very beautiful girl! Thanks for making a comment on my blog, lifeonjstreet! Always fun to meet new people.

R Montalban said...

I didn't go to prom either, as we didn't have one at our school, never mind. I make up for it now though by dressing up whenever I can!!!

Thanks for linking up with Leigh's post and helping to spread the happiness to her goal of at least 100 and for sharing these lovely photos of a special day full of joy :-)

Beautiful! What a lovely girl.

Grandma J said...

Tamia is gorgeous! I love those photos of her getting ready.

I wore a bridesmaids dress that belonged to my aunt. The matching shoes were too big so I stuffed tissue in the toes.

Great photos, lovely girl.

April said...

What a beauty...I love her dress! Definitely a time she'll always remember. My dress at prom was light pink polka dotted swiss with criss-cross thin straps across my back. Oh, the memories!

darcy said...

I hope Tamia realizes what we can all see in the photos - she's lovely. I think the words "confidence" and "high school" don't always go hand in hand.

You did an amazing job capturing her night. Beautiful.

Sue said...

She looks gorgeous...and her date aint' bad, either!

=)

Kelly Lund and Kids said...

Can you say GORGEOUS!!! I love the close up pictures of her while putting on make up :) Awwwwh Memories of Prom... I went, and was sick with the flu... I barely made it for pictures and then had to be taken home before my date saw what was in my stomach! Congratulations on Graduation to your daughter!! Im a
New follower :) Thanks for sharing :)
