I love photographing kiddos and families...it's kind of my bread and butter. But when I photograph a senior, it can spark a little bit more creativity. Because they sit in one spot when you ask them to, you're able to spend more time with poses, changing up locations, and coming up with new ideas in the moment. Senior year is such a hectic but special time, packed full with events, gearing up to say goodbye to friends, and preparing to make one's own decisions about how their life will unfold. I love being able to capture this time. A lot of guys have a tough time in front of the camera. It can be awkward or they're not sure how to pose or they just don't want to be there. But Braxton made it so easy; he was a natural and a nice guy to boot. His mom and sister came along, so we were able to capture some shots of them, too!
If you still need senior photos done for 2018, I am finished with this season, but I will open in Spring 2017 and would love to photograph more seniors! Just email me at Aubrey@applewoodphoto.com.
You guys, we have been planning this photo for over a year, so I know how hard it is to get family photos, but it is soooo worth it.
I am the oldest of 8 kids ages 14-34 years old, and with families of our own, crazy schedules all on different shifts and different days, it is not easy to coordinate a photo shoot for 25 people. But we did it. Some of my siblings managed to ask off work. It was my brother and sister-in-law's anniversary, so they postponed their anniversary plans until after the shoot. There was a lot of rearranging, but I am so grateful everyone made it work. My brother lives with his family in Vancouver, Canada, and will be a missionary in South Africa, so I was dead set that this was happening, even though baby (well, her face anyway) isn't in the photo. And I'm so grateful to my sister-in-law's generous parents who took time to show up and make the kids laugh and press the shutter so I could be in the pic too. I will treasure these forever. ♥
Epic grandkid photo fail, but honestly I love it. Ha ha!
Yes, my children do look like Civil War soldiers in posed photographs.
My nephew might need a redo. It was not his day. ;)
This family made their session so easy.
I have rarely had children/teens so comfortable in front of the camera, especially when they've never even met me before. They were all absolute naturals and interacted with each other so happily. You could really see each of their personalities shine through when they were being photographed, and they made the session really FUN! I thoroughly enjoyed working with this awesome mom, her four kids, daughter's boyfriend, and even their pup.
