Meet Kaitlyn. With a full schedule and ASB responsibilities, she is a busy girl this year. I was very happy she took some time to meet with us to discuss her senior portraits. Kaitlyn said she wanted to be photgraphed in a location “doing something”, so off to K street we went. There was lots of “Hey, jump up on that” or “Get behind that” and she was game for all of it.
A fun day and even more fun images. Thanks Kaitlyn for the experience. Have a great year!
p.s. don’t ever try to stand someone in front of a moving light rail car just for a great image. Their horns are really loud…
Rachel decided to mix it up with her senior portrait session and make some photos in the studio as well as a location near her home. She nailed it of course, bringing excellent clothing and matching attitude. Dead trees, old bridges, open fields and oak trees were just a few of the things that accompanied Rachel in these lovely images. Thanks Rachel for a great time and thanks Sue (Rachel’s mom) for going on the adventure with us (sorry I made you late for book club!) Awesome job Rachel!
Near the end of Kayla’s consultation, she casually mentioned it would be fun to shoot next to an old VW bus. Again, trying not to laugh out loud I said “Well, that’s a tall order but if one comes up I’ll let you know.”
Ten minutes after she left I ran next door to talk to my neighbor who just happened to have an old bus in his garage and it also just happened to match Kayla’s dress she brough to the consult. He was more than happy to oblige.
Fast forward to the day of the session, Kayla arrived and our neighbor not only parked the bus right out front for her to see, he washed it sparkling clean. Kayla’s jaw nearly hit the ground and I felt like Kris Kringle at the end of Miracle on 34th st. Needless to say, this was a fun session and Kayla did fantastic.
Thanks Kayla for a great session and thanks Tony for the bus!
One of Emily’s concerns at our design consultation was that she may not know what to do in front of the camera. Well, the day of the session came and within five minutes she acted like a pro. A wonderful look, great choice in clothing, and can’t go wrong with that smile. Emily is a fellow Rosevillian (sp?) and we photographed around our studio & various places in the neighborhood, as well as a few in the studio (GREAT dress!!!). Very nice job Emily!
I love it when clients suggest an interesting location I haven’t been to before, it’s always an adventure. Alexa wanted her senior portraits taken at the bluffs in Fair Oaks, a fantastic spot full of trees, amber grass, greenery…and attack moths.
Stef and I had such a wonderful time on this session. Alexa did a fantastic job of matching her look/style with the environment, a perfect combo. She brought her mom & sister along who were in charge of the portable clothes changing station (a brown bed sheet!), and moral support.
We are so fortunate to meet so many great people doing what we do. Thank you Alexa for introducing us to you and your family, and for being such an inspiring subject.
I could fill two pages with my favorites from the day, but here are a few.
I knew it was going to be a fun senior session when Stef and I first met Michelina. She wanted the edge of a fashion shoot, but also a “soft flowy” look in a grass field. We were able to do both and Michelina just nailed the look in both environments. She did so well, the second image here won Best in Show last month at our Professional Photographers of Sacramento Valley group. Quite the natural, Michelina did great even when standing knee deep in weeds (with heels!) and surrounded by big lights. It was a great time!
About five minutes in to our design consultation with Sydney for her senior portraits, I knew this was going to be interesting. We discussed several locations and then she mentioned a tomb.
Insert record scratch sound.
Yes, that will be fine.
Couldn’t have asked for better circumstances. Beautiful light, beautiful Sydney, and a really cool location!
Thank you Sydney for being so adventurous and sorry I didn’t tell you about the spiders nest…until after I got the shot.
