Here’s another session I had scheduled for the day it rained. Chloe was also a great sport about trying to do a few outside that day, but she had a lot more outfits and had booked a session that included on-location photography. She had some specific locations in mind we were excited about that just wouldn’t work in the rain. She also planned on wearing her ballet leotard and ballet slippers and we did not want to ruin those in the muddy puddles!
So, what’s a girl to do? We rescheduled some of the outfits for the next day I had available AND that the weather forecast was promising a beautiful day.
We struck gold! Not only did the in-studio shots turn out amazing, but we were able to do the outdoor on-location portraits in a town I never go to with Seniors because it’s usually a bit too far away to stick within the time frame I normally have allotted for the sessions… but since we were able to schedule it separate, it worked wonderfully. I was very inspired and my creativity just took flight. I love these images and have already heard from Chloe that she does too.
Hope your Thursday is great!
I’ve gotta say, I was a little overwhelmed when I saw the van full of clothing and instruments Ashley arrived with on the day of her senior session.
She had her mom and boyfriend in tow to help unload it all and we rolled up our sleeves and got right to work! Or fun, I should say!
I was glad I have accumulated so many backgrounds over the years because I needed quite a few for the thirteen, yes, I said THIRTEEN outfits! 🙂
I guess it’s unlimited, after all! LOL!
I can’t say that I regret offering an unlimited session, because it’s girls like Ashley that are really invested in making their senior portraits special that drive me into that creative zone.
I just love playing around with portraits of guitarists. Ashley had some beautiful guitars and I love the studio shots we created, but the country girl in me adores this one with her acoustic guitar out in the flowers.
Funny story with these shots… Ashley is wearing a butterfly necklace, butterfly earrings, and a butterfly ring… and you wouldn’t guess, but a tiny lavender butterfly landed on her finger while we were shooting this. It didn’t want to leave either. It landed on her guitar strings and everything! Pretty awesome senior portrait experience if I do say so myself! 🙂
Check out all the awesome pictures in the slideshow! There’s more musical ones… the banjo with the speeding train is another one of my absolute faves… and the ones of her on point in her ballet shoes are rockin’ too!
Such a talented and beautiful girl!
