Yay!!!! Another gorgeous senior girl to play with!! And the really cool part, is we were given permission to photograph IN the Urbana Free Library as part of her session. Now how cool is that? Played in downtown Urbana, taking advantage of the art deco marquee at the Cinema and the flapper dress, before heading for the U of I Idea Garden….Where it promptly proceeded to RAIN…ALOT…FOR A LONG TIME!!! But, we stuck it out, dashed out among the sprinkles and got some amazing shots with dramatic skies and flowers!
Caroline’s mom and I have been friends for….ever! So when her girls get to be seniors, they make the trek from Central Florida to Central Illinois for me to do their Senior Portraits! Makes me feel pretty good! So here is Cari, Rockin’ Central IL!
“Girl on Fire” – That was the theme of the photo session yesterday for the amazing H2O Salon in Downtown Urbana! Their unique approach to covering grey hair is why they are to be featured in a local magazine. As you can see, this isn’t your grandma’s hair coloring. Bold and colorful; wild and amazing; this hair color is like a beautiful canvas that you keep with you. Special thanks to stylist and colorist extrordinaire, Maggie, seen in the last photo with Erin, sporting her own cranberry colored hair!
And because I had a little down time…We included Kendal’s new headshots for the Salon’s webpage!
Hannah was unsure coming in for her senior portraits. She doesn’t like to have her picture taken. She isn’t really crazy about a lot of makeup either. I asked her to trust me. Half-way through her shoot she was rocking the posing and looking beautiful and seeing how amazing she is. When I look at these photos, I see an AWESOME senior!!! Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems.
This years hair trends are softer, more casual and natural, even when they are updos. Here are two examples of beautiful soft messy updos from H2O salon located in downtown Urbana IL. Notice the incorporation of braiding as well as curls in the first series of photographs, and off-center swirls in the second series. A special thanks to these girls for allowing us to photograph their homecoming looks!
Sydney chose to explore the funky alleys and sidestreets of downtown Urbana, with a quick stop on Campus to get some awesome water and reflection shots as we lost light and the streetlights came on! Special thanks to Caitlin Cole for all of her help! Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems.
Macy has this wonderfully classic 40’s film star look about her. She is very into music, singing in the chorus and playing saxaphone in the band. Seeing her, you can almost imagine her standing next to a baby grand, singing the blues in some posh jazz club! Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems
