Mom called in a panic…do we have time to meet the yearbook deadline? Of course! I met up with Emily at Lincoln Park. Again, shooting in November is always a challenge but we managed to squeak in a great session before the rain began. Emily had gotten all sorts of advice from her model friends on how to pose… yet her natural stance, willing attitude and natural beauty came shining through. She was an easy subject for my philosophy on shooting…simple, honest, real.
And remember, it’s never too late for senior portraits.
I love it when high school seniors know what they want. Ci had some definite ideas on location and clothing as we headed to Discovery Park. With interesting trees to climb, fall colors, and beautiful fields we hit the jackpot! Take a look….
I’ve photographed Wyatt and his brother over the years and now it’s time for senior pics. How time flies! A handsome young man, we headed over to the park and did a walk from top to bottom. He’s into golf and tennis making the images more meaningful. Here’s a peek….
Marco is kinda shy but I think we got some great images as we wandered through Lincoln Park on down to the waters edge. Marco’s a pretty smart guy who enjoys mathematics and engineering. He has joined the track team and field team where he participates in the shot put and discus throw.
Most guys are somewhat anxious about their senior session but Jake breezed right through it. We went in search of the local ‘giraffes’ and industrial look at Jack Block park on Alki. Jake was always one step ahead of me and I think we found what he and mom were after….
Vanessa is a senior at Holy Names. She is a dancer and had a strong vision of what she wanted to accomplish as we moved through Lincoln Park close to sunset. I think you’ll agree she’s a graceful young woman. Here are my favorite images:
It’s been a great weekend for senior portraits; especially outside here in West Seattle. I had the pleasure of working with Katherine, a senior at Chief Sealth High School. We took a walk through Lincoln Park stopping at some of my favorite spots and ended down by the water. Hey, if you are wondering where the Fauntleroy white swans went – they’ve been relocated to Vashon Island and are doing well!
Here are my favorite images of Katherine:
It’s time for senior photos and I was asked to photograph Erin…a sweet redhead who goes to Vashon High School. Somehow she managed to walk through Lincoln Park and down to the water in her red high heels – I guess it is all about the shoes! And she didn’t trip once! Some of my favorite shots were taken on a big rock at the water – I fashioned it after the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen.
Seems like just yesterday that I photographed Katie’s brother but it was four years ago! Now it’s Katie’s turn. Katie and her friend came over on the Vashon Ferry and then we ventured to Lincoln Park in the late afternoon and created some very nice images. Here are my favorites….
It’s that time of year for last minute senior yearbook photos. Yup, I can still make it happen for you. Neve came by this afternoon after shuffling her schedule and mine only to find the rains coming – what to do?! Quick, we can do it…and we did, right in my yard! It was the fastest session yet and yielded some great images perfect for the yearbook. We’ll get together again in April or May for more clothing changes and background options; hopefully with some better weather.
