I had two boys I photographed for senior portraits named Jacob within two weeks of each other so I was doing my best to keep them straight. LOL! Luckily one went by Jacob, and I shared his pictures a little while back on the blog. And I actually wrote a post about Jake’s session already, but the power went out that day right as I was finishing it! Ugh! Usually my blog’s autosave feature keeps me from losing too much of my work, but I must have just written it so fast, it didn’t have time to save it. 🙂
Sooooo… we got into the holidays, and trying to get people’s Christmas Cards and holiday orders to them in time and poor Jake here never got shared! 😦
I’m thinking his mom and dad will be pretty happy to see this blog post as I know how excited they were for their son’s senior portrait session. He’s their only child so it’s even more sentimental, since you know as a parent, you’re not going to get to experience this moment again.
Jake’s really into sports! Baseball and basketball in particular! He’s REALLY good at both and is going to SDSU on a baseball scholarship! Isn’t that awesome!? I’m thrilled because that’s where my younger brother and a couple of my younger cousins went and I know it’s a GREAT school! Hopefully he loves it.
We did some indoor and some on-location sports portraits so they could have a variety to choose from. My favorites are always the on-location. It just adds such a great element of realism to the image.
The hardest part of Jake’s sessions was scheduling them (oh, yeah, I forgot to mention we did two of them so we would have plenty of time to do the studio lighting in the gym and not overwhelm Jake taking so many on one day)… with all the sports games and practices, and mom & dad’s busy schedules… it wasn’t easy, but we made it work!
The easy part was Jake’s great attitude. He was attentive and generous with his smiles and he’s just so darn genuine that it shows through on his images.
Well, everyone, better get rolling! Have a great weekend! Hope your 2016 is off to a fantastic start!
I love welcoming old friends back to the studio. Jenni visited in 2011 when her brother, Taylor was getting his senior portraits taken. Here’s a cute picture of them together back in 2011… #tbt
Well, since then, Jenni sure has grown up and is a gorgeous young lady who is very athletic like her older brother and very much interested in sports.
We actually did two full sessions in one day to capture all her cheerleading, track and softball images as well as all the more classic looks. She picked a wonderful variety of outfits so I felt like she opened a door for me and all my creativity just started flooding out.
I’m in love with these images. I had such a hard time narrowing it down but luckily since we did two sessions, I get to show twice as many for their proofs! LOL! Now they are faced with the hard part, choosing! (Yikes!)
But that reminds me to mention…. One of the best parts about choosing my studio is that I am there for my customers, every step of the way, with an amazing ordering experience where we work together, in my studio with their images and lots of samples and I’m able to show them different creative ideas for displaying their favorite images with my state of the art ordering software. It’s so great, why don’t you call and book your session today and see what it’s all about?! 507-383-2344
I had the honor of photographing Karrin’s older sister, Karissa, way back in 2007 for her senior session. Now, it was little sis’s turn! And boy, did this girl bring it on!!!
I LOVE the fun basketball images we got. She loves this dribbling picture.
And this ivory lacy top was my favorite indoor outfit with this awesome attitude pose.
Then we went outside and did some fun ones in her cute yellow sundress! LOVE LOVE LOVE this one where she’s laying in the grass.
At this point in the game, it gets harder and harder to make each senior session unique… but I think we knocked this one out of the park!
P.S. We did a sisters portrait back in 2007 and again this year… Karrin sure changed! Glad her mom had me do that picture for them back then.
