I finally got to photograph my niece Alison recently. She's a senior this year and so off we went for her senior portraits. I knew we'd have fun because she is so full of life and energy. I can't believe she only has one more year before she, also, is off to college! Crazy.
(I have one more niece to photograph... Amanda, you're next!!!)
I enjoy shooting high school senior portraits. I don't do them often enough though. While high school senior portraits are huge in the midwest and a few other parts of the country, they are not as big in California, especially LA. These portraits are great to use for graduation party invites and wall portraits but I also love when the families order an album. What a great keepsake. I wish I had something like that to look back on now.
Here are a few of my favorite shots of DJ's session. He is the first high school senior boy shoot I have done and getting to know that he reads Sylvia Plath and likes old cameras made for a fun afternoon.
I've known this gorgeous girl since she was born now here I am taking her high school senior portrait. This would normally make me feel old but it's been great watching her grow into the young lady that she is.
I have been so fortunate lately! All my seniors have been so talented! Mostly singers and just all around beautiful people. One of the added bonuses of shooting my seniors is spending a couple hours with them and really getting to know them! Pretty cool stuff.
You might remember Jasmine from the family shots I did of her and her sisters a few weeks back. Here are some of our Rockstar senior photos:
