I recently had the pleasure of working with this great high school senior named Deyvin. Due to changing school requirements, these days I don't get to work with Seniors as often as I used to. Deyvin's school has very specific requirements for their yearbook portraits: an indoor studio setting with the wardrobe choice of either suit and tie or cap and gown. And while these formal portraits can look really great for the yearbook, they don't always properly represent who you are this stage in your life. Your individual interests and style don't necessarily get represented when the entire set up is picked for you. That's why I was so ecstatic to hear from Deyvin's mother, who knew that when it came to actually hanging her son's portraits on the wall and sharing his graduation milestone with family, she wanted something else. After getting to know Deyvin a little bit and learning that's he's quite athletic and loves to be outdoors, we agreed on a beautiful park setting and got some of his favorite music queued up for the session. Here's how it turned out.
I absolutely loved working with the stunning Maria from Alisal High for her senior portraits. Scheduling your senior session can sometimes be a little tricky, because we're working with the school yearbook's deadline. Those senior photos (and quotes) need to be submitted on time to make it into the yearbook! But thankfully Maria called me with plenty of time to have her favorite portrait turned in.
Like many high schools, Alisal High has particular guidelines that we need to follow for choosing a yearbook photo. It should be a closely cropped portrait of your face, not a full body pose. But during my senior sessions I love to get a variety of all types of poses. After all, you only get to submit one photo to your school yearbook, but you can order as many other photos for youself as you want! I always recommend ordering one of my Senior Collection print packages that include plenty of wallet-size photos. Wallet sizes are great for giving to friends, as well as including inside your graduation announcements to extended family.
I am so excited to share this Pacific Grove styled senior portraits session with you! Not just because I am so happy with how it turned it out, but because putting it all together "took a village"! I may not have talked about it in depth before, but for the past year I have been a very proud member of The Rising Tide Society. We are a nationwide group of entreprenuers in creative fields, such as photographers, calligraphers and other artists. We believe strongly in the idea of Community Over Competition. Which mean that we are not here to compete with eachother for business or clients. Instead, we come together to build eachother up and help eachother succeed. Our local chapters meet once a month in what we call Tuesdays Together meetings, where we discuss various business related topics, as well as build friendships.
Contact me for more details or to book your mini session today. Graduation packages are only available from now until June 30th.
