Meet Devon. It was clear at her design consultation that Devon was excited about this experience. We talked a lot about locations and looks, but she (and her mom)were not completely decided on clothes.
I love that.
We narrowed things down to a few different looks and I sent them off with their homework. A few days later I was getting photos they took from Nordstrom emailed to me with options.
I love that too. Always happy to lend opinions when it comes to wardrobe/accessories.
Here are a few of the looks they picked out. Very nicely done Devon!
Meet Rheanna. If you have spent any time on our senior website, you might notice I love photographing dancers. Not necessarily “dancing” photos, but I love incorporating dance elements in different environments. Also, dancers seem to handle themselves wonderfully in front of the camera. Rheanna was no exception. She also had a perfect pairing of wardrobe and accessories.
We started with some dreamy looks in the studio then went out to dance in the fields. Thank you Rheanna for the adventure!
Meet Katelin. When we met with Katelin and her dad at the design consultation, they had a specific studio portrait in mind. She brought some wonderful outfits that I felt would also work great outdoors. With some minor coaxing we ventured outside and got some great images to compliment the ones in the studio. Katelin had fantastic hair, and a last minute updo made a really fun look. Some faves.
Still very behind blogging and have just a few more 2011 seniors to post! Meet Jillian – class of 2011. I knew from the moment we met this would be a great experience. Jillian was VERY into the whole process…from location, to hair & makeup, and of course her lovely outfits & accessories. We decided an everywhere session would be best since she had such different looks. Started in the studio and then off to the grassy fields to show off that gorgeous dress and those boots. Thanks Jillian for another great adventure and for being so wonderful to work with. Some faves.
Class of 2012, it’s the time of year for senior portraits! Meet this year’s Enchanted Images Spokesmodels. If you know any of them, be sure to ask them how to receive exclusive offers for having your senior portraits by Enchanted Images. You can find more information on our senior portraits HERE.
Meet Christine, Roseville High class of 2010. Another fun session here at the studio & around town. I almost didn’t recognize her when she arrived with her fab hairdo (it was down at her consultation). She had it done up that morning and it just looked fantastic. We started in the studio and then went out for a bit before the sun went down. As you can see in the first few, it was just a perfect glowy day and Christine had the look to match. Toward the end of the session I asked if she might want to do a few photographs with her hair down. 15 minutes and 35(!) hairpins later, she let it fly for some great shots. Thanks for all the effort Christine!
Meet Cat, Bella Vista class of 2010. Cat arrived to her consultation just about every cool outfit available. Boots, scarves, necklaces, dresses and oh yeah…a black guitar. So again, off to the woods we went to chase some light. It was a perfect day and as you can see, Cat did great. About halfway through the session, she suggested climbing a tree for a few shots. I wasn’t overly eager for this as my last tree experience ended with me falling out of it and a nasty scrape on my knee. (I was trying to show a senior how to get up in it) Cat seemed pretty confident in her climbing skills so we went for it. Glad we did as they were some of my favorite images of the day. Thanks Cat for all your efforts!
Last week James and I were in San Diego for the SPA event 2010 (SPA is short for Senior Portrait Artists). This organization attracts some of the most talented high school senior photographers in the country and hosts one of the premier educational (and social!) events of the year for photographers. After James attended last year’s SPA event in Las Vegas without me and came home completely fired up, there was no way I was missing this one (especially because it was at the beautiful Hotel del Coronado). Aside from meeting up with hundreds of others talented photogs and hearing loads of great speakers, a main attraction and highlight of the event is the competition, which many of the attendees enter each year. This was the first time James entered the SPA competition, which included categories for senior girl and senior boy folio (a composite of multiple images from the same subject) as well as a single-image kids competition this year. Now, James has entered and done well in competitions before, but never anything quite like this. After all of the folios and prints have been judged, they are displayed all over tables so everyone can look at all of the entries. James felt quite intimidated when he saw the caliber of artists entering the competition. You can imagine the thrill we both felt when his name was called not only once, but SEVEN times at the awards ceremony! I thought he might pass out from the excitement (or the weight of all of those beautiful statues!)! I’ve included a photo of James with six of his gorgeous (and heavy) glass statues (the biggest one shattered in shipping and is being replaced), as well as a few of the winners. The awards he won are as follows: Top scoring folio; First Place girl folio; Judge’s Choice senior folio; People’s Choice folio; People’s choice single image; 2nd & 3rd place single image kids. James is so humble and if you know him, you know that he would never go out of his way to tell you about this amazing honor, but I can’t help myself, mainly because he works so hard and I think it’s so well deserved. Way to go babe!
Jenny decided to head downtown for her senior session so we explored K street for a while. Comfortable in front of the camera (and crowds at times), Jenny seemed a pro at getting the right look. I had a great time finding different places to shoot and an even better time bouncing ideas back and forth with her. Here are a few from the session. Great job Jenny!
