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….
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.
I met up with Kelly at the Arboretum at the Community College in West Seattle. What a wonderful place…it was the first time she had ever been there and just loved it… especially the Japanese Garden area…take a look!
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….
Mia needed her senior photo for the high school annual. These last few days have been chilly but beautiful outdoors…so, we braved the chill and got some really stunning images! She’s sassy, she’s confident, she’s adorable…
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 love the wild child senior portrait! Kati was the perfect subject for the Georgetown area. She brought a van full of outfits and we wandered the area while mom played taxi driver for us. We found lots of interesting architecture, trucks and a vintage trailer shopping mall!
We bumped up Maddy’s session due to forthcoming rain and the day was well chosen. The soft light highlighted her features just perfectly. Dressed casually we wandered through the park and then headed to the water. Maddy plans to pursue a degree in nursing. She’s got the perfect smile and manner so she is well on her way.
Nick is an interesting character. He goes to West Seattle High where he participates in wrestling. He didn’t bring his fightin’ gear; instead he was dressed very casually. We stuck close to the studio and did some portraits inside and then headed outdoors. The cool grey and black walls made for interesting photos. This cool cat will work toward a nursing degree.
