Senior portraits are about celebrating a life stage – for many teens, their entire senior year is filled with milestones, and it is definitely one worth noting and celebrating in many ways, including portraiture. It’s their last year of high school, but so much more. It is also typically their last year with the friends they grew up with, their last year at home (it will never be the same, even if they are twenty seven and living in your basement), and their last year of truly being under their parents wings. Their senior year is about being on the cusp of something great – their futures, and they will never see the world the way they do right now. Documenting that with professional photography is one way of ensuring that you never forget who they are, RIGHT now.
How do you choose the right photographer for you?
You should choose a senior portrait photographer the same way you would choose a photographer for any other type of life event, i.e. newborn, family, or for a wedding. It’s important that the style of the photographer, their personality AND what they offer be a fit for you, otherwise it won’t feel right. One of the biggest mistakes people make is simply comparing photographer’s prices on paper.
“I love what I do and I do it out of love”
This experience should be a day for them, and you, to remember! It should be fun, empowering, and a reflection of who they are (sometimes that comes in multitude of styles).
It’s important to me to brainstorm ideas together with them, and you, to stylize their wardrobe to reflect what makes them feel good, and to help them realize their own unique personal beauty.
I am a natural light photographer. I view custom portrait photography as a form of art and am inspired by golden light, real connections and raw life moments.
