I cannot tell you how much I LOVED Jacey’s session! Of course Katie did a perfect job on her hair and makeup and we kicked things off downtown for a little urban grunge look which I loved with her volleyball net and her classy urban styles. Her and her momma were so much fun to hang out with and the session flew by, PLUS at her second location I got to meet her two super sweet and polar opposite pups!!
One little thing I LOVE about being a photographer who favors additional lighting on our sessions is that it gives us a chance to create a variety of looks in one location. The next two sets of images were taken basically in the same place on the same white brick wall but with some flash we were able to completely mix up the look to make things a bit darker and edgier for her volleyball uniform and make things a little more light and airy and natural to fit her next look. All without needing to spend 20 minutes to walk to a different location! We even used the same rolled fence in the below left and above left image with completely different lighting to achieve a good variety in her volleyball team photos. One of my favorite things to do on session is shoot as many unique looks as we can in just a few hours. Most of my seniors choose our 2 or 4 hour sessions and we get a TON of variety in that time to show off all their eclectic personalities.
Plus we worked in images with her super fun car (I sure wish my first car had been half this cool but I definitely loved it just as much!).
We are now booking summer and fall senior sessions and our calendar is filling faster than ever. Sessions can be reserved HERE and you can call/email/message us anytime to setup your consultation to learn more about what we can create for YOUR senior session!
Today, I’m sharing James’ senior album with you all! Our albums are a product that nearly every one of our senior clients selects and with options from 14″ metal cover Italian-made designer albums down to 6″ pocket albums we’ve got an option for everyone to take home one of these custom-designs. They are one of my favorite items to create for clients since I know loose portraits can easily end up dusty in a box under the bed, digital images are more often than not never even downloaded and I haven’t had a client yet with enough wall space to feature 30-50 of their images all at once!
So albums give us the chance to highlight ALL your favorite images in a custom-design that’s easy to display on an easel on a bookshelf or even out on the coffee table. Plus, we want to plan for now, for this session and this kiddo, but albums help us plan for all future sessions too. Imagine all your family’s milestones… senior years, engagements, weddings, new additions, growing kiddos, etc all ready and at your fingertips in your matching albums over the years. It’s hard to make time to scrapbook or make these yourself (I know, I do this for a living and STILL haven’t made my wedding album yet!) so this takes the work out of it and instead of a project we provide you with the finished legacy instead.
One of my favorite things about James’ session is that we worked in his bass fishing! This is the first session I’ve done with a bass boat and though we had a TON of fog for his early morning session it made for a really cool session!
I also had some fun creating sunlight where there was NONE. The fog was THICK all morning on this day and they’d really hoped for some sunshine (what’s the fun of getting up for a sunrise session with no sun right). So I decided to create a little (see the last album design above).
Today I get to share Garett’s senior portraits with you! We might have had a chilly dreary day (nothing like the 80 degrees and sunshine that decided to show up this week!!!) but we definitely made the best of it. Early spring sessions can be a bit unpredictable but by this time of the year I’m always itching to get the camera back in my hands and get outside after mostly indoor sessions all winter long.
We kicked off Garett’s session at the high school to feature his two sports, baseball and football. Construction on the brand new field made things interesting but a very accomodating construction crew let us get what we needed on the bleachers while they worked!
After finishing at the school we headed over to Whitmore Park. This little park is one of my favorite little forgotten spaces over here. I love it for spectacular fall colors in it’s nice dense forest but even this time of year it gives us such variety and being one of the less visited parks in town we often have the place all to ourselves for sessions (and play days for me and B too!). Garett chose this park as his second location because it’s a favorite spots to take his pup for walks.
You may remember the Morrison’s first session with me a couple years ago. I was so thrilled to work with them again for Garett’s senior portraits.
