Little League is a MAJOR deal, pun intended.   Like teams across the state of Kentucky, this 12 year old team of All-Stars has one dream, to play every game with intensity, focus, and heart.  They are ONE team.  Inspired by the movie, Field of Dreams, we went for a nostalgic and vintage feel for their uniforms and team poster.

Here are your 12 year old Hazard-Perry All Stars.

    Holly Fields Caudill - Awesome!!!

1.  Sleep the night before.

2. Wash Face.

3. Eat Breakfast.

4. Double Check outfits.

5. Bring Shoes.   (Even though they may not show).

6. Bring your jewelry. Photographers like options. ( Mixing and matching is fun.  Don’t spend time agonizing over every detail, leave that to me).

7. Google Directions to the studio before you start driving.  Our address is 2785 North Main Street, Hazard, KY 41701

8. Bring someone with you!  Moms and/or best friends work perfectly.  I may even put them to work!

9. Makeup.  Bring your own for touchups, incase the studio doesn’t provide.  We have just about any color available.

10. Wash the car if it’s going to be in photos.  No Photographer wants or has time to photoshop dirt off a car. LOL.

11. DON’T forget your sports equipment.  Shoes if you cheer or play soccer, volleyball, baseball etc.

12. Smile.

13. Have fun.





Breeding-51Breeding-42Hazel came to the studio as a  Mother’s Day gift for her mom, Pauletta.   As her sisters Kennedy, Cassidy and Vannah watch patiently in the background, Hazel took the job of sitting for a portrait very seriously.  She had her toenails painted, a trendy and vintage hair accessory in place, and the perfect angle for her teeth to SHINE!

Breeding-15I cannot even describe to you how much fun I had connecting with Hazel!  I get the feeling she gets tired of little yappy, foo-foo dogs and wants everyone to know she can get glammed up too!   Like, I “get you” girl.   On occasion, I  too have days when I think,  “How can I compete with younger, hipper photographers who have way less wrinkles?”  But, you know, at the end of the day, we are who we are.   And I bet living with 3 gorgeous girls can’t be all it’s cracked up to be.Breeding-87Breeding-79Breeding-63


As if their beauty isn’t enough, Hazel says you can watch her sisters perform at Jenny Wiley Theater this summer.  Click here  for more information on dates and times of Shrek. Don’t miss it!
