I am totally obsessed with this session.
I don't get to photograph seniors often because most people come to me for family and children sessions, but when I do, it's always a treat. Don't get me wrong, I love working with young families. But seniors follow instructions quite a bit easier than a two year old, and this leaves a little extra time for being more creative with poses and outfit changes. I love getting to know the seniors I photograph: what inspires them, what do they want to do after high school, what do they enjoy doing now? It is so awesome to know that they are embarking on and crafting the basis of their adulthood, excited for the future and all it holds. It's amazing to think about all that could happen to them in the next 10 years: college, travel, marriage, babies, career, inventions, concepts, and more. This could all happen in this tiny space of time.
I just know Brooklyn is going to be awesome over the next 10 years, because she's awesome now, and her family is awesome too. She is probably the most laid-back senior I've ever worked with, and she has a genuine kindness, a sparkle in her smile. Brooklyn was a very natural model and made it all so easy, and her dad was there to support her. In fact, her dad is probably the most involved father I've ever seen at a session: carrying her things, suggesting outfits and accessories, fixing her hair, making her laugh. Parents know best what their kids really look like, what a natural smile looks like, or how their hair normally falls. I had a blast with this session, and it was fun to edit, too! Best wishes on your future, Brooklyn!
If you are interested in a senior session, I am not taking any more sessions for 2016, but I will be happy to work with you in the spring. I suggest booking early for a late April or early May date.
