We already posted “Part One” which was Kyla’s session, and now here is Kyla’s twin brother Noah getting his turn (with a return guest appearance by Kyla of course)! 🙂
With Noah we focused exclusively on studio work – he changed into a couple different outfits, we used a couple of different backdrops and Noah did a fine job!
Here’s a fun vine with a little behind-the-scenes action from the photo session!
…and a resulting picture from that series!
Next we moved to the grey backdrop. This has become one of our favorite setups with a senior boy in suit and tie on the grey! Very GQ – although most of our seniors have no idea what we are talking about when we mention GQ… ha. What a stud – Noah killed it with this pose!
Lastly, Kyla joined her twin brother for a return appearance for a really sweet photo together! We love seeing these two together – they are really close and it shows in this photo! Overall it was another fantastic session!
While some people might be blah blah blah-ing about today’s youth on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that “selfie” was named Word Of The Year by the Oxford English Dictionary – that they are self-centered, shallow and whatever else the curmudgeons may say, our latest senior is the total opposite of all of that! Ryan is the editor of the school newspaper, has his sights set high for college and beyond, and is an engaging and very impressive young man – much like plenty of the seniors we meet! We love this generation and we love this guy! He’s the perfect type of kid you would want as a representative of “today’s youth”!
We had a great time with him and for this session the focus was on studio portraits. We had a lot of fun with Ryan and his mom as well – she hung out for the session and even provided some coaching! Haha!
Ryan was definitely “ready for his close up” and we would say that he is ready for life – Ryan is just plain READY!
Alanah picked a perfectly beautiful day for her session – it was cold but the lighting and the location were perfect and we had a lot of fun. We don’t want to embarrass her by saying this but when we met Alanah we thought she was really shy and quiet. Alanah is another senior we have known for years and we photographed her brother two years ago, but it was not until she became a spokesmodel for us this past year that we really got to know her and discovered that once you get to know her she’s not shy at all! She’s actually very outgoing and pretty funny!
Her mom had the idea of having Alanah in a boat (you have to give credit where credit is due haha) and she had the perfect spot for us, so we went to the location first since we had great sunlight and an early morning start. Getting the boat into the water provided a few laughs and the whole scene was pretty amusing as you can see in this vine…
…but it was worth it – the results are great!
We then got a few other spots and one of our favorite trees turned red earlier than we thought it would so that was a bonus! We love the way this one turned out and Alanah looks stunning!
We did all of Alanah’s spokesmodel shots in the studio earlier in the year so we didn’t plan to spend a ton of time indoors this time around but we still headed back to the studio to get a couple more and here’s a highlight from those. We hope you have enjoyed these highlights from Alanah’s session a fraction as much as we enjoyed photographing them and getting to know this adorable young lady over the years!
This is actually “part 1” of a two-part post since Kyla is a twin and her twin brother Noah will be coming soon as “part 2”. We split up the sessions due to scheduling but Kyla will make an appearance in Noah’s session when we take a few photos of the two of them together. We’re looking forward to that!
Meanwhile this day was all about Kyla and we were more than happy to focus on her for a few hours – what a sweetheart and totally adorable! Kyla and Noah have another pair of twin brothers, so with Kyla being one girl to three boys it was fitting that she get her own day right?
We started in the studio with the black backdrop – no props save for just a black stool – simple and dramatic…
Then we went outside on location and the conditions were perfect! It’s been an unseasonably warm October which has been really nice for our seniors.
The backlight on Kyla’s hair was perfect and helped to make for some spectacular images! We had a blast with Kyla and her mom – another great day with another great senior! Take a look at a couple of these great shots in a meadow! Enjoy!
Emily is one of our class of 2014 spokesmodels so if you follow this blog or our studio on other sites you’ve probably seen her before. Her spokesmodel session was photographed completely in the studio so for her senior session we spent the whole time outdoors. We had a perfect day and this special senior deserved nothing less!
Yes this session had everything including a little entertainment at my expense when I ran straight into a sign that was a few feet behind me as I avoided a bee. Okay I’m a little bit of a wimp when it comes to bees… and ironically it turns out Emily and her mom are used to bees since they actually keep bees and they brought us some honey a few days after the session! In keeping with the “B” theme we also photographed Emily in front of a “bog”…
…and on a bridge. This was a new bridge that we weren’t aware of and we stumbled upon it on a trail during the session so for us it will now be forever referred to as Emily’s bridge (because that’s how we roll).
We had a great time and it’s been a true honor to have Emily represent us this year!
