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
A lot of photographers who focus on high school seniors tend to ignore the guy side of the market and focus mostly on the teenage girls, knowing they are usually much more invested in the process than their male counterparts. I would have to agree on this statement, as a general rule, although I’ve had some really great guys walk in my studio that had some great ideas and were really wanting to do what they could to make their portraits amazing.
Well, I love photographing both the girls and the guys in the high school senior market because with the guys, most of the time, it’s really about bonding with and marketing to their moms… and their younger siblings! This summer has been filled with younger sisters of boys I photographed two, three, or four years ago. The moms just loved me so much and the girls… well, I’m just guessing they’re thinking… “Heck! If she can make MY BROTHER look THAT GOOD, think of what she can do with ME!” 😉
I guess that’s for you to decide… what do you think of gorgeous, natural, Rachel? She has such flawless skin, with the cutest freckles and strawberry blonde hair. I barely touched these images. She needed no blemishes retouched, whatsoever. Gotta love that!
We have some beautiful, classic images, but we also captured some really fun ones in her softball and volleyball uniforms in the studio. Rachel is hilarious and she kept me laughing throughout the session.
Hi there! I’m just trying to play catch up today! I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed lately and trying to keep on top of things… shoots, proofing, ordering, packaging, phone calls, emails, facebook, blog… it all adds up!
Luckily, I made a great choice this year, sending Collin to a daycare in Northwood so I wouldn’t have to run him to daycare after pre-school which has been a total life-saver! (Especially since he goes 3x week now, not just two.)
I told myself I was going to start hitting the treadmill again now that I have to run into town, but my workload hasn’t allowed it quite yet. I have high hopes for next week though! My butt will be fat soon if it doesn’t get out of this office chair! … although I do tell myself I have been doing lots of sessions and house work in my off time (staining and painting) so I have kept pretty active. But it’s not a good replacement for some good, hard cardio… they say it helps you work (focus) better too.
Ahhh… enough about my life. On to more fun things!
Miss Alli here was all sorts of fun, with her mom, Kris at her senior photo session. I had a great time seeing all her cute outfits.
She has the BEST smile! All teeth! No holding back! I didn’t pick many serious looks for her proofs because that just wasn’t her style. Although I’m sure a bunch of her friends will love them.
Alli here is a huntress like me… so I was pumped when she said she brought along her shotgun. She is a young Tiffany Lakosky!
It was also interesting to find out she’s a tough cookie too! She’s pitched SIX, that’s right, I said SIX, no run games! What a woman!!!
Well, back to the not-so-fun parts of my job!
Erin had a gorgeously sunny day to take her senior portraits. We sure have been blessed with some nice weather around here lately!
But to tell you the truth, I prefer a few clouds in the sky, it just takes away those harsh shadows that you get when you’re trying to do outdoor pictures at 3 o’clock in the afternoon.
Even with the bright sun, we got tons of amazing outdoor shots. Just look at these!
Naturally gorgeous girl! Love her!
