We’ve done sessions at country clubs before, but this session was a first for us – we actually took golf carts out onto the course itself and it makes sense that we’d get fantastic results since golf courses are so picturesque. And this wasn’t just any golf course – this was one of the most beautiful and prestigious around!
Oh – and as the end of the Vine video above shows, did we happen to mention that we had a stunning senior to photograph at said location….? 🙂
For starters Amanda is a North Farmington Raider which we always have a soft spot for as Raiders ourselves. She’s an ice skater, she’s pretty, she’s smart, AND she’s sweet. We started out in the studio – first Ally, Amanda and her mom bonded a little sitting on the floor with clothes laid all around and went through them together, and then we got started. Here are some highlights… Enjoy!
Once we were done in the studio we headed out to our location – it was a beautiful day and we had such a fun time! Amanda’s dad arrived towards the end of the session and we sat and schmoozed for a while after we finished – great family, great session, great senior!
Mother Nature was our friend on this day for sure – we had this session with Kevin scheduled for the morning and when we woke up there was a steady rain outside…
So we started in the studio and worked the water polo angle since Kevin is the captain of his team – for those of you who may not know much about water polo it’s a tough sport – personally I may have played football but I’ve got mad respect for anyone who can handle hand to hand combat, skill and finesse at the same time in a pool! Talk about needing to be in shape…
Meanwhile the weather magically cleared up and we headed out. We got some great shots outside after all so it really was Kevin’s time! Enjoy!
This was a bittersweet senior session but way more sweet than bitter!!!
Danielle is the youngest sibling of 4 and we have photographed all 4 of them at one point or another – the latter 3 now for their senior pictures. We love this family and while we’re sad that this was our last high school senior session with them (that’s the bittersweet part), we have loved getting to know them and working with them all! We are sure we will always be friends. 🙂
Meanwhile, on to Danielle – what a session! She is one smart, personable, sweet and beautiful girl. Danielle did a spokesmodel shoot for us on a nasty winter day that didn’t allow for any location shooting so this time we spent pretty much the whole session outside. Over the years when we’ve stumbled upon a new spot we haven’t noticed before it has made for some of our favorite photos and the senior who pioneers it gets it named after them such as Rebecca’s tree or Jared’s rock. This time we found a new spot – a short black wall that was perfect for Danielle! One of our favorite shots of the session for sure, and now it’s forever hers! Enjoy!
Jill had an outstanding photo shoot and it’s always special for us when we photograph a younger sibling of one our seniors from the past. We’ve become very close with Jill’s older sister whom we photographed a couple years ago and with whom we produced some of our most memorable shots. Meanwhile we had never met Jill until our recent consultation with her to prepare for her own turn in the spotlight…
WOW! Such a beautiful, photogenic and sweetheart of a girl! First we started in the studio:
Next we went on location and got a variety of great shots, but it was at the end where the session produced a new shot for us that we LOVE – a little spontaneous hop onto a swing set that yielded such a fantastic result! Enjoy!
We proudly present to you pictures from Noah’s senior session! You’ve probably seen him in our window and on our class of ’14 brochure… Noah is one of our spokesmodels and we are happy to have him representing our studio!
The other day we posted on facebook that “happiness is photographing North Farmington Raiders” and this was one of the sessions we were referring to. Noah’s little brother even came along and jumped into one of the photos!
We had a good time and Ally saved a katydid who was hanging out right in front of a door to a parking garage (we think it may have had an injured leg). In any event we were pleased with the results with the urban setting! Enjoy!
As you can tell we are busy with seniors which makes us so happy! Danielle is no exception when it comes to the happiness level…
Danielle is a spokesmodel for us this year and so this was the second time we had the privilege of photographing her. The first time we got some great studio work done and so we focused heavily on location shooting. It was pretty hot but the lighting was perfect, and we got the standing-in-the-water shot but I wouldn’t say it was the most comfortable shot – very muddy and mucky, but Danielle rocked it anyway – a total pro!
All in all it was a great session! We love our seniors!
This was such a cool senior photo shoot!
We planned this one for a rare evening session and we got some amazing shots as the sun went down and then when it was totally dark with a few different lighting techniques. We had so much fun with Courtney – tons of laughs and we all were feeling really inspired as we let the creativity fly…
First we actually started with a little studio work:
Then we headed out into the night and got some incredible pictures! Courtney looks fantastic in front of a camera!
It’s all about the shoes….
We had a great time on this fantastic senior session with Blake! We had the honor of photographing his sister two years ago and we were looking forward to this. The weather was fine and the session went off without a hitch or any crazy stories unless you count the highly aggressive salesperson who came in and tried to sell me advertising despite the fact that we were obviously with a client, and then arguing with me when I said I wasn’t really interested. Ugh.
Meanwhile Blake has the style going on when it comes to the shoes and he has quite a collection. He also has a sense of humor since once you’ve seen this video it’s hard not to joke around with anyone named Blake, Denice, Jacqueline, Aaron, Timothy, or the last name of O’Shaughnessy. We were calling him “Ba-lak-ay” and his mom got in on the fun too. 🙂 Cool guy for sure and we had a lot of fun!
Our latest senior session was perfect. The light was perfect, the weather was perfect, the setting was perfect, and our senior looked stunning!
We started with a little studio work…
We then went on location where as I mentioned everything was perfect….except for the bugs… and the “threat” of bullfrogs. This girl does not enjoy bugs or bullfrogs. The bullfrogs in the area only made themselves known once or twice with a random loud croak or two, but the bees, beetles and one random flying bug decided to get involved in the session. It all worked out – the beetles on the flower we were using kept to themselves (even though they briefly scared our model), and the bees didn’t sting us or her. The one random flying bug flew right into her eye at one point but didn’t stay, and for not being a fan of bees she still looks pretty comfortable by the flowers where they were buzzing around! She’s a real sweetheart with a great sense of style – we laughed a lot and we had a really fun time together! Love these shots!
We even made a fun vine from the session… 🙂
Every senior session has a story…
For this session we tested out a new light for an idea we had for a night time shoot. We ended up getting the shot but we almost didn’t. We needed bleachers at the end of the session and we struck out on the first two high school stadiums we went to. At the first one the lot was being resurfaced and it would have been next to impossible to get our equipment to the stadium, the second one was in use by the football team there under the lights, and the third…… was locked, and it was getting late. Luck finally turned our way when we discovered that the second entrance was unlocked and we were in! It was totally worth it…. here is the shot:
As for the rest of the session this senior totally rocked it and we had a great time! Great kid, great family, spectacular pictures. He is definitely the kind of guy you would want on your team! Enjoy!
