Halli is such a doll. Her genuine and sweet spirit is so captivating--I loved capturing her inner and outer beauty! We spent hours tromping through the park finding all the "gem" spots that highlighted this gorgeous girl's personality best and I am just so excited about the way this shoot turned out! Her sister even joined us for a few fun shots. :) Thank you Halli for choosing me to take your Senior pictures, I had such a great time working with you!
I love working with Seniors. There is something about that anticipation of graduating--that sense of gratitude and accomplishment of all the years of hard work about to be paid off, that nostalgic feeling of leaving the small world of high school behind and taking off on a new and exciting life journey that I immensely enjoy capturing. This shoot was no exception, we had a lot of good laughs during this one! Congratulations Owen!
This is one of the most bubbly, caring, not to mention radiant young ladies I have had the privilege of knowing. She and I met last spring working together as barista's, now here she is, graduating next month and about to take off for UW! I seriously could have kept shooting all night, the whole session was just breathtaking! I have loved getting to know you this past year Alyssa, you have a beautiful love for the Lord and a heart as big as the sky, I know that will take you far! Love you, girl!
If you are a High School Senior, and you are a guy, I promise you will enjoy having your senior pictures taken! Just because of the stereotype that 'guys don't like pictures' doesn't mean you won't enjoy your experience! It can be so daunting as you imagine what the shoot will be like over and over in your head, apprehensive about being on the spot and you just know you will feel a little anxiety and insecurity upon arriving...Questions might be begrudgingly racing through your mind...Will I pull this off? Will I look/feel ridiculous? You mean I have to 'play dress up' and do this for mom for a whole hour? Believe me, I know the feeling. It's just awkward, so awkward! But what if I told you CAN discover how much fun posing in front of the camera can be and you CAN feel like a rock star doing it! Because the moment you step foot on location of your Senior portrait session with me, I make it a priority to be that photographer who genuinely cares about this time in your life. It's a beautiful, messy, fleeting experience, a bitter sweet season in your life that I want to capture on point in your images. I am that photographer that will let you step back and be you, that trusted friend who gives you the freedom to be silly, to be shy, to be serious! Because seriously guys, who wants to look and feel like they're smiling like Cheshire Cat or like grandma you caught off guard with her kodak wind-up? So, c'mon Seniors! Let me show you how FUN and easy this can be!
