Alli | {Senior Pictures} Class of 2012 Seattle Senior Portrait Photographer

August 18th, 2011

Alli brought a whole group of friends will her to her senior portrait session to help cheer her on – literally.

Alli brought a whole group of friends will her to her senior portrait session to help cheer her on – literally. They (cheerleaders and non-cheerleaders alike) were doing cheers behind me and telling all sorts of great jokes to get Alli to laugh. Boy did it work! We captured some delightful laughter, beautiful smiles, gorgeous scenery, and had a whole lot of fun in the senior pictures process. One of my favorite things as a senior portrait photographer is getting a taste of that wonderful, youthful spirit that high school seniors have. It’s amazingly contagious. Take a look at all of the fun:

Alli and her friends have a funny tradition of taking photos where the three of them are off in a group, separate from Alli. Here is a spin on that tradition, with Alli showing her beautiful confidence!

As you may already know, I make sure that each senior portrait session is tailored to the individual. I personalize it for YOU! Since Alli does a fantastic job in school and is the one her peers often turn to for school help, we thought it would be fun to play up the nerdy aspect, piling up a bunch of books and having Alli wear some bit-of-nerdy glasses. NO – She’s not really a nerd. 🙂 We just thought her friends would get a kick out of it and that this styling would help everyone remember a bit of Alli’s identity during her senior year.

Did I mention Alli’s fabulous shoe collection? We thought we would play it up a little:

Yes, they are spelling her name! Can you see it: A – L – L – Y! Too much fun. 🙂

What a fun day! Thanks, Alli and gang.

Cheers!

Madison | {Senior Pictures} Class of 2012 Seattle Senior Portrait Photographer

I was thrilled when I got a call from Madison’s dad, asking if I would be available to take her senior portraits while she was visiting here from Michigan!

I was thrilled when I got a call from Madison’s dad, asking if I would be available to take her senior portraits while she was visiting here from Michigan! What an honor that Madison found me online and chose me to be her senior portrait photographer so that she would have something different from what all of her friends but have in Michigan. I didn’t know until I met her just how much fun that we would have together. That girl has got the moves! Madison, if you are ever back here, please give me a call, and maybe we can just go out and play on some sort of styled shoot sometime. 🙂 Madison wanted some photos that would somehow say, “Seattle,” so we decided that waterfront pictures with boats and other fun details would help set her pictures apart and make something really special from those other seniors in hometown. Here are a bunch of faves:

Thank you so much for choosing me! I loved every minute.

Delightfully,

Hi all! Well, it seems like I just can’t find enough time to squeeze in some blogging fun!

Hi all! Well, it seems like I just can’t find enough time to squeeze in some blogging fun! Nevertheless, here I am, sharing portraits from a very fun senior portrait spokesmodel shoot with my newest spokesmodel for the class of 2012, Tracy. Let me give you a little background on this shoot. Being a photographer and loving capturing the beauty and fun in all of my clients, family, and the world around me,  my strange little mind is always soaking up possible photo shoot locations…and I find some of the strangest, most lovely locations, mind you! You may not know it, but some of the beautiful fields that provide backdrops for some of my clients and models are just that – beautiful fields. Some are really natural beauty found next to the freeway. Others, as in Tracy’s spokesmodel shoot’s case, are overgrown, deserted housing plots. 🙂 Well, I noticed this particular housing plot a little over a year ago when I spotted the largest dandelion clocks I have ever laid eyes on! (I call the fuzzy balls that yellow dandelions leave behind “dandelion clocks,” because I read that in a book.) Anyway, those amazing blooms blew away before I had a chance to use them for a photo shoot. I kept looking and looking this year and, what do you know? The blooms came out just in time for Tracy’s senior spokesmodel shoot! Whoo hoo! Tracy was such a great sport in all of this…I’ll show you why in a minute. Please enjoy the lovely photos we got:

First of all, here is the ultimate dandelion clock-blowing photo!

How did we get that shot? Let’s just say with a little bit of magic. You see, those dandelion clocks were hearty little fellows. Tracy was puffing on them with all her might and couldn’t get them to budge. Finally, I just had her shake of the blooms! lol! Check it out:

Sooo, the first photo I showed was really a mixture of the first photo in the blog storyboard above and the second to last one. Ha ha ha! Photoshop magic and a whole lot of fun. And now on to the rest:

OH I forgot to mention the amazing little yellow chair we found in an alley! Too perfect!

Thanks, Tracy! Welcome to the team!

Delightfully,

Kristen
