Abbi : Mason City HS : Senior Portraits

It’s been so crazy around the studio the last few weeks, with high school seniors stopping by almost every day. Between the photo shoots and the ordering appts… the time just flies by!
I feel so blessed this year. I’ve been meeting some amazing high school seniors and their families. Abbi here was one of the latest. She blew me away with her personality. She’s beautiful, inside and out… but she really knocked my socks off when she posed in her cheerleading and danceline outfits.

Maybe it helps that Mason City’s colors are the same as my old highschool colors, but I LOVE their uniforms! Marketing research proves that red, black and white are the most effective attention grabbing colors. And I agree, whole heartedly.

But back to Abbi’s sweet jumping skills… isn’t she amazing! LOVE THIS! We definitely need to do some kind of multi-opening collage with these. They are just TOO good to just simply be in the proof book or a wallet sized print.

I also loved all of Abbi’s other outfits. Seriously, if I could fit in her clothes, I would have done a reprints/wardrobe swap! heheee. Not sure how thrilled my husband would be about that idea. ūüėČ

Of course, we had to do the images in the field of flowers… this time I loaded up my big orange chair. Definitely a favorite garage sale find! The girls laughed as I drove it down my driveway on my ATV. LOL! They even took my picture.
(I believe you can’t take yourself too seriously! Show your personality and don’t worry so much about impressing people. They should love you for who you really are.)
Enjoy!

A new year and a brand new blog!

Happy New Year! ¬†I am so excited to ring in 2011 and share my new Rebecca Lynne Photography, real.life.blog with you. ¬†I thought it would be nice to have a fresh, new look for the new year. ¬†Plus, this blog format allows me to create multiple posts and “schedule” them to post. ¬†That’s the main reason for the change.

I am a firm believer in using the new year as an opportunity to reflect on the past and create goals for the future. ¬†I feel like I’ve done a really great job blogging and staying current with my posts, but I would like to become more efficient with my workflow and to be honest, blogging was eating up quite a bit of my time.

I would try to create a blog post immediately after I finished proofing someone’s session images, which was fine, but just about everyone knows that the more you can do one thing without having to switch gears the more efficient you will be. ¬†Hence, the concept of creating multiple posts one time each week from the previous week’s sessions and then scheduling them all to post on various days throughout the week. ¬†I’m thinking 3 times/week. ¬†Monday, Wed, and Friday. ¬†That’s the plan, anyway!

So, enough of this boring, business stuff. ¬†You’re not interested in that stuff anyway. ¬†You’re here to see images, right?! ¬†Well, have I got some cute ones for you!

These were taken a couple weeks before Christmas, but I never got a chance to feature them on the blog and I really wanted to because their mama is such a peach and I just love her to death.  We have known each other a looong time and I just feel honored every time I get to photograph her two adorable girls, Morgan and Marlee.

Enjoy!
