I’ve been having so much fun this year with our senior model team. We have a fabulous group of girls and one of my absolute favorite parts of our model perks is their BFF session. We invite them to share a portion of their senior portrait experience with the friends that are important in their lives right now. We all know that adulthood is right around the corner for these guys and with that comes school and jobs that could be right next door or across the country/world and I always say one of the hardest parts of adulthood that no one talks about is no longer living a block from your best friend.
Of course, some of these relationships will last a lifetime (my bff has been in my life since first grade – the elementary pictures we have of eachother are the BEST) and others will fade or fray. But whether these people are destined to be in your lives for a year or a decade or a hundred years, they are an important part of this chapter now and we want to give them their time to shine with you!
And a little perk of joining our model program early (this is for you class of 2021 as we’ll open up for you just next month) is that we’ll feature your bffs your senior year AND your junior year if you’d like!
Believe it or not we are less than one month away from opening up our model interviews again for the class of 2020 and for the first time for 2021 seniors! You can already apply NOW at sjanephotography.com
I’m excited today to share a throwback to this beautiful class of 2017 Mt. Zion high school senior, McKaela! Her studio/Allerton combo was one of my favorites. I simply love creating sports images in studio (as I talked about in Jarius’ post recently). Not only do I love the way your uniform colors will pop on our rich black background but I often pair this with our mirrored floor to create a unique reflection look like the one below. McKaela did that pose so well (you have to really become ONE with that floor to get close enough for a good reflection!).
Her album design became one of my absolute favorites too. While I don’t use a TON of text in our designs sometimes just a bit can really elevate a design and I had fun with a new style of text in hers to give more of a ticker tape feel that was super fun.
As we round out the last 90 degree days (it is September right?!?!) here’s a peek back at the spring colors/flowers that will be here before we know it. If spring is your favorite time of year and you’re itching for a session in the tulips be sure to call us soon and we can get your spring session saved just for you!
Today I get to share some of Jessica’s favorite images from her senior session with you! We had a chilly chilly day out at Allerton for her session but, of course, that park is beautiful year round and we had the chance to hide from the cold for just a bit in the greenhouse.
Jessica grew up camping at the 4H campground at Allerton so we were sure to work in that part of the park to her session as well and I’m most excited about the wall collage they selected (below) to show off their favorites!
