It’s just a fact that the name ‘Matt’ or ‘Matthew’ means Gift of God.  And it’s also the best name in the world.  Yes.  I am biased.  My name is also Matt.  But I’m just telling you the truth.  We’re in the no spin zone here.  I report, you decide.  And if you don’t like what I decide whatever it’s my party and either you’re riding the bus or your hitchhiking.  That’s a weird word.

What’s not weird is Matt.  Nope.  He’s straight up where it’s at.  But do we need these words to reaffirm this belief of mine?  Nope.  Just need the happy pics beneath these words.  So let’s send MuchLove to Matt for being so awesome (it’s in the name obvi) and to all you good peeps out there in Land of Blog throwing another log in the fire to stay warm – Enjoy!


Up next in the never-ending flashback of days gone by of supersenior pictoshoots is a visit to the time when we had the goodlygreat pleasure of working with the ever-lovely Bailee!

Our little trips back in time may seem to be never-ending, but when you’ve got samplesmaps as awesome as the ones below these words then taking a little meander back in time is truly quite wonderful, because it reminds us that not only will we soon find our way out of these winter times, but it also reminds us of the awesome time that we had with Bailee.  I mean, just one look at these pics and you will know that our time with her was completely awesome and wonderful, just like she is!

Well, that last sentence was starting to get sappy, so I think that it’s best that we just take a moment to send MuchLove to Bailee for being so awesome to work with, and I tell all of you good people out there in the frozen land we call Blogville, to – Enjoy!


Round and round the Otis & James Wheel of Senior Flashbacks goes, and this time we land on the letter K…which stands for Katelyn!  Which is good, because it’s time for us to take a look at some samplesnaps from the senior shoot of Katelyn.  Coincidence…it’s what’s for dinner.  Well.  I’m just going to end this sentence and get out of this paragraph.

Katelyn stopped by the FunCenter on a day that was not really all that long ago when  you start looking at the whole history of everything, but long enough ago that there were leaves on trees and you could lounge on furniture in an alleyway.  wut.  Well, whatever.  The point is that it’s time to look at these pics because they are awesome!  And they’re not awesome because of anything that we did, they are awesome because Katelyn is straight up awesome – as I’m sure anybody that knows her can tell you!  So we gotta take a second to send out MuchLove to Katelyn for choosing the o and the j, and we gotta also tell you Peeps of Blog to – Enjoy!


Let’s start out this week right.  And how are we going to do that, you ask?  We’re going to do that by taking a little trip down memory lane (not too far back because Memory Lane is fun to visit but you can’t live there) to a time when we had the goodlygreat pleasure of working with the one & only Jurnee on her supersweet seniorpictosnaps!

Do you ever get the feeling that I’m just going to combine every word together into one long word and when that finally happens I will just cease to be – like I’ll implode or something?  I kind of get that feeling.  Moving on from such existential thoughts…

As I was saying, Jurnee stopped by the o&j for her Senior Pics and she brought the goods.  And by ‘brought the goods’ I mean that she was awesome – but once again, you don’t need all of these silly words to let you know that, all you gotta do is look below at the samplesnaps to know that I’m telling you the truth.  But wait!  Before you go clicking on the pics below these words, we need to send MuchLove to Jurnee for giving us a little bit of her time, and we need to tell all you good people out there doing what you gotta do to get by to – Enjoy!


Then there was this one time when the doors of the FunCenter opened up and into our lives strolled the one & only Will and his purpose for strolling into the Center for Fun was to have some senior pictures taken so then we were all like ‘yeah we got a camera and this studio and stuff so let’s do this seniorpictosnap thing’ and so then he was all ‘that’s cool’ and so we kept on strolling right on back to the studio and we let the good times roll and we knew it was going to be good when we could feel it move our soul but I think I’m quoting a song but you get the point and our time with Will was all too short and sweet but had it gone any longer maybe it wouldn’t have been so awesome but questions like that are better left to the scholars and not to the photographers so instead we just need to send Will MuchLove for taking the leap with us (just to clarify we didn’t get married we just took some senior pics but I had to come up with something cliched to say there) and to all of you good people out there in Blogland wondering when this sentence is going to end – Enjoy!


I don’t need to write anything up here in this space.  I mean, I could just post these pictures below these words of Sheyenne and call it a day.  But somehow, deep down in my heart I would feel as if I was letting you down somehow.  But I don’t think that I’d actually be letting you down, I think that when I look in side my mind [ed. Thats a treacherous road – you sure you want to venture there] that I would actually be letting myself down.

And I would be letting myself down because I wouldn’t be letting all y’all know how wonderful Sheyenne is, and how great she was to work with during her seniorpictosnap session!  And I need to tell you that!  And I need to stop starting sentences with the word ‘and’ because I can feel the death glare of my college comp teacher burning a hole in my soul for doing so (shoutout to Dr. Sauer.)  But whatever, I’m not being graded on this.  Judged, yes.  But not graded so whatevs.  Back to the point.

We need to send MuchLove to Sheyenne for taking a little bit of time out of her senior year and spending it at the o&j, and we need to tell all you pleasant peeps out there in your happy little worlds to – Enjoy!

Groove On Now, It’s Mikayla!

Do you have your groove on?  Are you feeling it?  What’s that?  You’re not?  Well then.  I suggest that you just shake the cobwebs out of your head and fill it up with the groove you need to make it through the day.  And a way to get started on this quest to regain your groove is by taking a moment or two or even three and quite possible four but there are five pictures below these words so maybe even five, to experience the goodness that is the seniorsamplesnaps of Mikayla!

You see, my good peeps, science and technology and the House of Groove (located somewhere between Detroit and Memphis) have all agreed that Mikayla has got the groove, and if you don’t believe any of these esteemed sources then you just need to take a look at the samplesnaps below these facts and you’ll know that what I’m saying is the truth.  But wait!  Before you do that we need to take a moment and send MuchLove to Mikayla for bringing the groove to the studio, and for being so great to work with.  And we also need to let all you groovin’ peeps out there in Blogville to – Enjoy!

Check This Out. It’s Alyssa!

Well then, as long as we’re putting up lovely pictures of lovely people, how about we put up some seniorsamplesnaps of the oh-so-lovely Alyssa?!  You know what?  I think this is a grand idea!  And you also know what?  Because I have the power of the ‘publish’ button, I can pretty much decide this unilaterally!  I mean, it’s not to say that I’m not in favor of a group consensus on these sorts of things, but sometimes it’s just better to act on your own and go with what you feel in your heart to be in the best interest of everyone.

And in this case, what’s in your best interest is to stop doing whatever it is you are doing and to take a couple of minutes and appreciate the awesomeness that Alyssa brought to the O&J during her Senior Portraits.  In fact, I’m pretty sure that if you do take a couple of minutes to do this it will make you have a much better day than you are already having – so it’s good for your health too.  What more could you ask for?!  So, even though I’m running this thing like a dictatorship, I’m kind of a benevolent dictator – I have your best interest in mind, 97% of the time, 37 weeks a year.

So now, let us send MuchLove to Alyssa for choosing the o&j for her Senior Pics, and all of you good & faithful Peeps of Blog, be sure to – Enjoy!

It’s Lacey! Straight up.

I’m going to tell you the straight up truth.  We’ve got some supersample seniorsnaps below these silly words of the one & only Lacey.  And these pics are awesome.  And that has nothing to do with the o or the j, it has to do with the fact that Lacey is awesome.  Like I said, I’m being straight with you.  I got no time for shenanigans or tom-foolery.

Which is why I’m also telling you that Lacey was a joy to work with as she graced the FunCenter (that’s what it says on the door when you come into the studio so I think that I’m obligated by some sort of law to call it that) with her presence on a day that wasn’t all that recent but wasn’t so long ago that we can’t remember it (could I be any more vague?)  Regardless, she stopped by, she rocked, pics were taken and here we are today.  Straight shooting.  How I roll.

So now it’s time for us to send MuchLove to Lacey for letting us take her Senior Pics, and I also need to tell all you other straight shootin’ peeps out there in Blogville to – Enjoy!


Let’s take a little time out from the day and spend a moment going back in time just a little bit to when the one & only Kaitlyn stopped by the Otis & James FunCenter to have her seniorpictosnaps taken.  I think it would be good for us to do that.  I think it would make your day a little happier, a little brighter!

I know this because our time spent with Kaitlyn made our day a little happier & a little brighter, because there’s no way that we could have been around her and not felt this way because that’s just who she is.  And that’s a fact, Jack.  I don’t know who Jack is but that’s beside the point.  The point is this:  Kaitlyn was awesome, and the proof is in the samplesnaps below.  But before you go clicking on those pics we need to send MuchLove to Kaitlyn for being so great to work with, and we need to tell all you good & happy peeps out there in Land of Blog to – Enjoy!
