Recently I worked with Megan to create her Senior Portraits, we started at her home and them took a trip to Garfield Bay to finish up our session.
In Megan’s back yard stands the playhouse that was build by her father when she was little, unfortunately it was used very little ever since the discovery of a spider inside many years ago. We braved the risk of spiders and I set up a flash inside the small building as well as one outside aimed through the window. Since the building as well as it’s furnishings were now very small compared to the now adult sized Megan I kept thinking of Alice in Wonderland growing too large for the house she found herself in. The cards hanging on the wall, minus the Queen of Hearts, seemed quite fitting!
This last Saturday I spent a good part of the day with Kelsey taking the first round of her Senior Photos at her grandparents’ home near Priest River. Kelsey’s Grandfather graciously set up some hay bales for us to use and they worked out great! You would not have even known it was 40 degrees out as Kelsey braved the cold in a sun dress, cowboy boots and for a few photos her dad’s hat.
Since it was a bit chilly still we are reserving most of our outdoor portraits for the warmer, greener months and spent the majority of our time on some studio style portraits.
The last part of our session we broke out the uniforms and did some sports themed portraits.
I had a great time spending the day with Kelsey, her Mom Sandy and Grandmother Jeanie. We had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun, I can hardly wait for the weather to get nicer so we can schedule round number two!
I recently had the opportunity to work with Jessica on her Senior Photos. She picked out some very fun locations and I had so much fun working with her that I almost wanted to cry when our time was up. We had a great time and think we ended up with some really nice shots! Here are Jessica’s favorites:
After our shoot my assistant Shea decided he wanted to take a dip, so Shea and Jessica traded roles for a couple of minutes!
This last week I have been blessed with photo shoots at some beautiful locations containing fields of tall wheat stalks that were just begging to make their way into the photographs. For this shoot with Marissa we not only had great wheat fields but some of them were filled with daisies which of course begged just as much, if not more, than the wheat stalks! I only have a handful of photos edited from our session, but since Marissa is getting a little anxious I better give her a sneak peek, here you go!
I am very blessed to have as an assistant a High School student that loves photography. He is a very big part of running an efficient and successful photo shoot and is often instrumental in helping me produce great quality photographs. Yesterday he assisted me in a Senior Photo shoot, but this time not only was he my assistant, he was also the model! Here are some of my favorite photos from our shoot.
