So, like I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been rather lazy about posting pictures online. Since this is only my side work, I guess I have that luxury. However, I excepting my last post, haven’t posted for about a year. To make up for it, I’ll be following up with some posts of the highlights of the last 12 months:
And… since it’s been a year, he got older.
Here are his 4 month pictures:
And here’s some with his momma at 5 months:
By doing senior photography, you don’t get a lot of repeat clients, but you do get siblings. This is the case for Kristen. I had photographed her sister Maddie a couple of years ago and Kristen was keen on having me do hers as well. Both girls were extremely photogenic and possessed an uncommon comfort level in front of the camera. I had so much fun with Kristen, and the results were spectacular!
After years of assisting me with photo shoots, it was time to shoot my sister Rebekah’s photos. Lucky for me, Rebekah loves to be in front of the camera, and for good reason – she looks good there. Like most of my shoots I do a few head shots for Mom and several fun artistic shots for the senior and everything in between.
Allison has been a close friend of my sister’s for many years. I was very excited when she asked me to do her senior pictures. Not only because she’s a joy to be around, but also because she’s such a beautiful person inside and out.
Allison came with some requests, like many of my seniors. Her mom wanted tight head shots and she wanted lots of black and whites. I always appreciate these requests, especially if you want black and whites. Doing a simple desaturation is often not enough. Good black and whites often need photoshop tweaking to get the contrast right.
A busy summer has prevented me from addressing this blog. To me, doing actual work is more important than displaying it, but nevertheless, as a Marketing professional, I know it’s importance.
Here’s some images I pulled from three of my favorite shoots this summer.
This photo shoot took advantage of my iStock photography discount. This means that you can purchases these images online here. Please be mindful that while these images are royalty free, they are not restriction free, so read the fine print.
I tried a few new locations for this shoot, as many photographers have begun to discover my other locations. These are little more edgy than my typical Senior Shots, but still in line with current trends.
That session can be contrasted with these images which are more experimental. I would not include images like the following in a session, unless explicitly asked.
Finally, here was a fun child photo shoot. I love it when parents ask me to take photos of their children that allow to bring out their personalities. Here’s the result:
Before I started photographing 2010 Seniors, I figured I should finish up 2009. Here’s two more from May. I didn’t have time to watermark the one, so here’s the video:
And, the other chose to take advantage of the iStock discount. So here are some of the iStock files from that shoot:
There are two more of these posts to follow. I’ve been busy taking photos and editing so I haven’t had much time updating the blog.
This particular photoshoot was a senior photo session and an engagement photo session all in one. I had a ton of fun! Chris and Ronae were great and I wish them all the happiness in the future!
Every once in a while you come across a truly photogenic person where it seems they can’t take a bad photo. Liz is one of those people. And, as you can see from some of these photos she’s got quite the personality as well! Beautiful inside and out!
Here’s a video collage of her pictures:
Here’s some of my favorites:
