CLASS OF 2020 – IT’S TIME TO BOOK YOUR SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSION!
I know I am repeating myself when I say how much I LOVE taking high school senior portraits. Not only did I just go through this exciting time with my own son (who will be heading off to college this fall), but I vividly remember my own high school experience and how thrilling and emotional ing this time of life was. Searching for colleges, exploring my developing passion for art, sports and music, the friendships & relationships I treasured, working a part time job, and the myriad of ideas that you begin to consider on a deeper level as you grow and expand your world. I always enjoy meeting my senior portrait clients and hearing their stories about where they are currently in their lives, and thoughts for the future. I encourage the sessions to be a reflection of who they are at this time in their life – whether that is simply the location they choose for the session, or if we include props like the musical instrument they play, a piece of equipment or gear from their signature sport, or their fashion that shows their unique qualities. My main goal (aside from giving their parents wonderful keepsakes and printed memories) is to make these teens feel comfortable with me and in front of the camera, so that their genuine smiles, body posture, and personality comes through in their portraits. Everyone wants to look good in their portraits, which is completely understandable. But I also want my portrait clients to feel good being photographed as well.
Below are some of my favorite senior portraits of the amazing, beautiful, diverse and intelligent young women I had the pleasure of photographing last year. I’m sure they all are finalizing their plans for where they will study, work or travel to after high school graduation, and I wish them all the very best in all their endeavors!
