Senior Portrait: Jessica (The quiet one)

Yeah… she doesn’t talk much.  When she does, you definitely want to hear what she has to say.  But it wasn’t extensive conversation that drove this wonderful session with Jessica.  She was easy to photograph because she has a great look, an excellent sense of fashion, and listened to the instructions during her session.

I sometimes think that we get great clients like this because they know what they want… specifically, they either know what they want their pictures to look like, or they trust us to create something unique and interesting for them.  This was a case where both things applied.

Special Note

Jessica was referred to us by one of our senior models.  If you’re interested in being part of our senior models program, please contact us.

Jennifer & Mike’s Engagement Session: True Love?

The purpose of an engagement session for us is to show off their love without the formality of the wedding.  It also gives us an opportunity to get to know the couple in a more casual environment.  This usually pays off on the wedding day, because we have a more open rapport and a relaxed bring & groom.

So, when Jennifer and Mike came to us for their engagement portraits, a couple we already had some exposure to before, it was just like taking pictures of friends.  There was also the requests for them to have a couple of individual portraits, as well.  They’re a good-looking couple and we wish them the best of luck in their future.

Senior Portrait: Blaise (An exercise in “mom said”)

I suppose it is often enough that we meet interesting people.  It’s even better when they are also smart and opinionated.  Probably pictures was not first and foremost on his mind, but he happily indulged his mom, who had some specific things in mind when they booked their session.  Blaise is a techo-hip kind of guy.  That intrigued me.

Senior portraits, that rite of passage, hope to capture some of the elements of who they are when they come in.  Blaise… is different. 🙂
