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….
Brannden has the most intense blue eyes so shooting in the late evening on Alki certainly enhanced them. While he goes to school in Kirkland he also spends time over in West Seattle. He loves the water and participates in sports like basketball and tennis.
I met up with Eric for a walk through the gardens at South Seattle Community College this past weekend. Overcast and clouds provided smooth lighting for our session. I always love it when the guys pick out their favorite outfits. He was just tough enough to pull off the “James Dean” look of white T-shirt and jeans. We added red shoes for flair later on and then turned to a more classic look of V-neck sweater with a jacket. All in all I think we captured his senior persona just fine.
Bryce is the last of the Morgan boys to pass through the halls of West Seattle High. Active in sports he plans to attend a community college and explore his options for the future. If he’s anything like his brothers there will be an exciting future in store for him. I’m thrilled that I’ve been able to photograph all three boys and capture their family portraits over the years.
