Life is always full of exciting encounters, events, and experiences. Perhaps the most exciting period in the life of every teenager is their senior school years. Teens savor their last years of nonchalance and anticipate the sweet taste of independence. Want to make this transition from a teen to an adult even more exhilarating? Senior photos are an excellent way to perpetuate the best time of their lives. This is the kind of experience they will be carrying in their hearts through thick and thin.
Capture Their Beauty Inside and Out
Seniors will have many photo experiences throughout their high school years including pictures for a yearbook and prom. But those are formal, overly posed, and, somewhat, forced shots. They play it safe, they focus on what is considered to be ‘right’ and ‘socially accepted’ but they completely ignore the personality of subjects. That is not my approach. I don’t want to be another photographer whose pictures exhibit plastic smiles and fake poses. I want to show my models real. I want to convey the spirit of youth in them. I want to capture their genuine raw beauty.
I always encourage seniors to be themselves. These photos are not for parents, they are not for teachers, they are not for the school board. They are for them, for boys and girls who are just one step away from adult life. So why pretend to be someone else? You are beautiful in your own skin, so don’t let anyone try to convince you otherwise.
Don’t be scared to show your passions, desires, and dreams through the lens of my camera. They make you who you are. Being yourself, being real is the most precious thing in the world, period.
Kira and Lex Senior Photos
Taking pictures is super easy when I have such fun-to-work-with models as Kira and Lex. The girls couldn’t be more different. Lex is all about being in front of the camera (she grew up in front of the camera!) and Kira never had a photoshoot before.. It was amazing to capture their personalities. They wanted to try everything at once and take on a lot of images yet remain their awesome selves. It took a some time to make Kira a bit more comfortable in front of the camera. She fully relaxed after a couple of shots, the results are stunning!
The result was rewarding for everyone, to say the least. For me, it is always a pleasure to work with seniors. Kudos to the girls for their enthusiasm and inexhaustible energy! And Kira and Lex got a bunch of distinct pictures flavored with a great deal of priceless memories and pure emotions. These visuals of their high school life are something they can be proud of now and nostalgic about many years after they leave school in the past. School years can be tough at times but senior photography will brighten up this journey and bring the fondest memories to the fore.
How to Get the Best Senior Photos?
Girls, and boys, too, want to look stunning in their photographs. And the best way to achieve this stunningness is to be prepared. I know, the word ‘prepare’ doesn’t sound particularly appealing to teens who tend to be a bit wayward and chaotic (in the best way possible, of course) but for the sake of good looks and good moods, it needs to be done. So how to prepare for a senior photoshoot?
First and foremost, you need to have a clear idea of what you want. Coming up with a theme for your photosession is half the battle. If you can envision your pictures before a photoshoot even begins, you won’t have any unpleasant surprises at the end. No worries if you are not sure what your theme is – we will brainstorm with you! Besides, a specific theme (or themes) will help you decide on wardrobe, makeup and hair, and maybe some props.
If you are not sure what you want or you have too many ideas and you can’t pick one, let’s discuss it together. Don’t be shy to be vocal about your wants and needs because you’re a star of this photoshoot and your vision is the only thing that matters. As your photographer, I will help you find an ideal location for your dream photoshoot as well as walk you through everything. It is your day and my mission is to make you feel like a million dollars.
Want to take some friends or your family with you? That’s awesome! The more the merrier. If it means more fun, more cool ideas, and a more relaxed atmosphere, I’m all for it!
