Destination Senior Portraits with Sky

The second of my three Destination Senior Portrait sessions with Class of 2016 Senior Models was with Sky.  My base of operations for my three scheduled days was Seaside Oregon, for Sky’s senior portraits we traveled south to see what we could find.  As can be expected on the Oregon Coast in the spring we had it’s fair share of of rain, but we had enough breaks in the downfall to get some great photos.  The first place we stopped was just past Canon Beach and it featured some great rock formations and a very cool waterfall with a shallow enough stream for some rain boot stomping!

Next in our exploring we found a great dense forest spot with a lot of moss covered trees and a nice hint of sunlight peaking through for a rim light on some natural light portraits.

We continued down the coast and found a great turnout overlooking the ocean, the town of Manzanita and it featured some great dramatic clouds.

Next we did some urban style portraits in the small town of Wheeler, Oregon.

In the Rockaway Beach area we braved a few raindrops to get this portrait.

The tide was out so we were able to get some fun portraits on some rock formations just before Garibaldi.

We finished up our time in the town of Garibaldi.  There is a great public pier there that I have been dying to do portraits on for years, I tried one time before on a trip with friends but the rain hindered that effort.

After the pier the plan was to do some photos in another spot for sunset, but it started raining pretty hard so we stuck around Garibaldi to see if the rain would stop.   Thankfully it stopped just long enough for us to catch a little bit of the sunset peaking through the clouds.

Favorite 100 Portraits of 2014

The job of narrowing down all of the portraits I have taken the past year to only my favorite 100 is so very difficult, I have great clients and every one of them have photos that I love and want to include in my final Favorite 100 portraits of 2014, but alas I have to narrow it down to only 100.  2014 was a great year for me.  I added new photos to my portfolio that I have had in my mind for a long time, I learned new things and I pushed myself to try new things.  For the first time I entered photos into the Senior Style Guide Hot 100 contest and was thrilled to find out that I had an image selected in the urban category, check it out here.  This was a hard job, but now I can present to you a short video featuring my favorite 100 portraits of 2014!

Bradley’s Senior Photos

Bradley is a senior int the Class of 2014 from Bonners Ferry High School, we worked on his senior photos at three different locations around Sandpoint, Idaho.   When we talked during our consultation Bradley mentioned that he was a huge comic book fan, especially Batman.  I wanted to come up with a location where we could showcase some of his comic book collection where it would not look too out of place so I contacted Angela at Kokanee Coffee in Sandpoint and we were able to set up a time that we could come and set up a few quick shots at the coffee shop.   It was a fun shot to set up and I am very thankful to Kokanee Coffee for letting us use their coffee shop!

Zach’s Senior Photos

Zach is a senior in the class of 2014 from Lake City High School, we took his senior photos at two different locations in the Coeur d’Alene area.  The first location was a spot that he has enjoyed visiting for many years.  While we were there someone set off what sounded like an M80 which prompted the property owner to send an entourage to find out who was setting off fireworks on their property.  We benefited from this as they parked their classic Toyota Land Cruiser right by where were were taking photos so naturally we had to make use of it as a prop!
