Zach is a senior at Rantoul High School. He was originally only getting senior pictures to make him mom happy. Then I said the magic word: FIRE! Suddenly much more interest when discussing what to set on fire! Then we talked about his passions: hunting ( shotgun and bow), fishing, and his truck. After that it was just having fun!
You are gonna have to wait to find out what we set on fire this time! Check back in a week or two!!!!
This Mahomet-Seymour Senior made my life so easy. Nice guy, athletic, super smart and wonderful to photograph!
This is what happens when senior soccer players get to have fun and show-off! Stay tuned til tomorrow for more awesome senior photos from Jarrett’s photoshoot!
It was a valiant effort to get Maddie’s senior photos taken before the storm hit Wednesday night, but raindrops were hitting the windshield as we pulled into Allerton Park and the skies grew more threatening. It rapidly became apparent that her senior portrait shoot wasn’t going to happen that evening. Phone calls were made, schedules juggled and we were able to regroup and reschedule for the next day. The universe made it up to us with a day that is everything you could want for a senior shoot; beautiful weather, gorgeous senior and almost no one else in the park. As you can see, it was totally worth all of the effort for these beautiful senior portraits. I can hardly wait for her to see the rest…..
The beautiful senior was originally scheduled for a week ago today….Cold, wind and rain/snow caused us to rethink our plan. What a difference a week makes! I saw this blue wall a few weeks ago in downtown Urbana, and just knew that Johanna, a SJO senior, was going to look amazing with this as a backdrop. I love how it makes her beautiful blue eyes just POP! Special thanks to H2O Salon for hair and make up. Stay tuned til tomorrow for more photos of this gorgeous senior!
I promised you gorgeous and drama…We’ve got gorgeous and drama! We also have attitude and a twist. Yep a twist that I don’t get to photograph everyday. You see this gal is more than a beautiful person and pretty face, she is Army National Guard. How cool is that? You go, girl!
Decisions. Decisions…..Sneak peek that makes me smile? Sneak peek that is drop dead gorgeous and dramatic? Smile? Drama? Smile? Drama? Smile wins. You get drama tomorrow. Plus she says her owls make her smile too! Stay tuned for more of this beautiful, sassy Fisher High School Senior!!!!
After days of cold and rain and general YUCK, we got a perfect autumn day for Lauren’s senior photo shoot at Allerton Park. I love the way her eyes sparkle and just jump out of the image at you! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s full 5 image sneak peek!
Molly has some serious game…And some serious patience. Usually I post the super sneak peek within 24 hours of the shoot. Due to the fact that I just today got my replacement computer and all of my software installed, she has had to wait four days. Yet she kept it together. No frantic emails, no texts. She knew she rocked it. And she’s right, she totally rocked it! Stay tuned for the 5 image regular sneak peek tomorrow and see what else she was up to during her amazing senior portrait session!!!! Oh and in case you were wondering, hair and makeup by the fabulous Tia Crom!
This beautiful Urbana class of 2016 senior totally rocked her senior portrait session!!! She showed everything from attitude at the graffiti wall to playful fun with bubbles in the idea garden. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, the breeze did incredible things with her hair, and we had an absolute blast. Check out her “attitude” shot below and be sure to check back Monday for more awesomeness!
It was probably the hottest day of the summer, but that didn’t stop Alley from totally owning her senior portrait shoot! This is one of my favorites with this gorgeous raspberry color dress and the breeze moving her hair.She has such an open natural smile, it makes you smile back without even thinking about it. Not very often I come home from a shoot and my face hurts from smiling so much!!!! So pop back early next week to see a selection of other beautiful images from her senior shoot!
I am so in love with Jenny’s beautiful red hair! And Allerton Park was the perfect place to showcase this gorgeous senior! We had exceptional Karma going that night, as we not only didn’t get rained on, but got an amazing sunset as the final, final last shot!! Here are just a few of the amazing photos from her shoot!
Rachel was a lot of fun to work with! She went from “can’t keep a straight face, to supermodel serious, to girl-next-door” in a heartbeat! She was game for anything, and we played on the U of I quad until dark! These are just a few of my favorites. I swear these girls are killing me as I try to edit all of these amazing photos!
I just couldn’t resist sharing this sneak peek portrait of Rachel from last night Her eyes just pop off the screen…..Be sure to tell her how much you love it when you see her!!!
It doesn’t seem possible, heck 2014 hasn’t even graduated yet, but NOW is the time to book your Laura Trovillion Photography Senior Portrait! We are fully booked for June and only have 3 sessions still available for July. Call me now at 217-897-1166 to get secure your sitting! Don’t wait til next fall, cause it may be too late!
This is going to be a big DUH moment, but a lot of Seniors and other people don’t get this….You gotta play! This is about YOU! It’s about YOU having FUN! You being You, whatever that may be! Senior portraits aren’t something that is done TO you, they are created WITH you. If you don’t show up, I’m just taking a bunch of still-lifes. When you start to have fun, spontaneous things happen, and when they do, they can be uber cool. The trick is to be ready for them and jump on it. Play, dance, jump in the water, climb a tree, do a victory spike in the end zone,do the funky chicken, back flip off the diving board, what ever floats your boat or rocks your world….Have fun with it…..Life’s too short for pictures that look like you are bored stiff or have a stick in an awkward place.
When choosing a Senior Portrait Photographer, you probably do one of two things(or both) ask friends and search the internet. After about the 500thousandth photo, your eyes are glazed and your fingers numb. How are you supposed to know what is just okay and what is great? This is why I have put together this lovely graphic with some quick tips on what to look for!
- Beautiful skin – good retouching to remove blemishes without making your Senior’s skin look plastic
- Eyes that sparkle – This is a result of two things: light being correctly positioned to create “catchlights” and illuminating the eyes. The other reason is they are having fun!
- Professional hair and makeup – I consider this a must for my seniors. It makes all the difference in the world.
- Poses that flatter you – We cannot all be model thin and able to pose beautifully at will. The photographer should know how to pose you, “clear down to your eyelashes”, so you look your best! No one likes to feel awkward in front of the camera!
- Variety – Multiple poses with each outfit/background are a must. You need a variety of verticals and horizontals: smiling and serious: casual and formal: beautifully posed and carefree dancing
- Gorgeous Lighting – This is last, but most important. Look for photos that demonstrate the photographer’s ability to handle any situation and create different looks with light. Do they have the skill? Do they have the equipment?
- If in doubt look for the Laura Trovillion Photography Logo! You will know its Awesome!
In our previous post on the three P’s of Better Senior Pictures, we talked about planning. Planning involves answering the questions; what you want, what to wear, where to go and when. This post breaks it down even further into how to prepare for your senior pictures!
The first step is to talk to your photographer. You need to both be on the same page and you need to schedule your Senior Portrait Session! Your photographer should be able to give you more advice as to what to wear and where to go.(unless you have somewhere specific in mind) Most photographers are not mind-readers, so you have to tell them what you want or at least what you think you want. Remember, the photographer wants what you want; Awesome Senior Portraits!
Once the date is set for your Senior Portrait Session, it is time to prepare!
- Plan to have your hair cut/colored no later than 2 weeks prior to your session. (Especially in the summer). Do NOT decide on a new hairstyle right before your senior session…This includes shaving your head for sports camps!!!! Gals if you are getting your brows waxed, schedule it a few days prior.
- Shop or select the clothes you plan to wear. Make sure everything fits well and is comfortable. If it needs ironing, do it now.
- Each outfit should be put together on a hanger, and any special undergarments, accessories or shoes go into a plastic bag, also on the hanger. Hanging clothes prevents wrinkles. Wrinkles are bad!
- If you plan to have Sportraits or other photos in a sports uniform, contact your coach ASAP, so you can have access to the uniforms you will need. If your sports portrait also requires a special location, such as a swimming pool or gym, make sure you will have access on your selected date as well. Reconfirm the week of your Portrait Session to make sure everything is a go!
- Sports uniforms, like other outfits all go together on a hanger. All gear associated with that sport should go in a duffel bag. This includes headgear, helmets, pads, goggles, balls, bats, poms, EVERYTHING you need goes into the duffel.
- If you want photos in your letter jacket, make sure it is up to date with your most recent letters and patches.
- Avoid the sun for the days prior to your Portrait Session. More specifically do not make plans to go to the beach, boating, fishing, or any event where you will be in the sun for hours on end. Not only do sunburns hurt, they are ugly when they peel and are more difficult to contend with in post production.
- Get sleep the night before…enough said
- Gals make sure your nails, fingers and toes have either no polish or are freshly polished…chipped, nasty nails just look bad.
- Guys…shave(I don’t care if it’s “No Shave November”)
So, you have talked with your photographer. You have scheduled your Senior Portrait Session. You have your outfits planned, and on hangers. You have your sports gear and permission from coach to use the pool, gym, etc. Your hair, eyebrows and nails are all done and beautiful. You have rescheduled your trip to the amusement park and the all night gaming party scheduled for the night before. Guys have a post it on their mirror that says: SHAVE!
You are officially prepared. Next we will talk about the fun part…Participation!
Thanks for reading! Hope everyone stays safe and warm through this next round of winter weather! Laura T
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.
Braving the cold and the wind, Abbey and I set forth to create some amazing senior photos…..And as you can tell, WE DID!!! Hair and Makeup by Tia Crom!!
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.
I had the pleasure of taking these three beautiful Class of 2014 Seniors to Downtown Chicago’s Millenium Park this week for a Senior Portrait Mini-Session. It is so inspiring to go somewhere that you have never photographed before. It was a great adventure for all of us, and hopefully I will get the opportunity to go back for a full senior session later this year. Special thanks to Kathy Browning for driving, and helping to make this trip awesome!
Congratulations Class of 2013!!!
These Class of 2014 Seniors ROCK! It was cold, snowy, spring break and a Sunday afternoon….And they totally brought their A game! For most of these seniors, it was the first time in front of my camera. For everyone involved, its was the first time creating amazing senior images in 30 minutes.
These mini-shoots were a trial run for our Makeover Marathon in April. The girls arrived with straight hair and no makeup. In 15 minutes the amazing Hair and Makeup artists, Sarah Kellems, Tia Crom and Stefani Smith transformed these girls. Each girl then spent 15 minutes in front of my camera, where we achieved multiple images where they look like covergirls! The guys were spared the hair and makeup, but spent an intense 15 minutes in front of the camera as well. I am excited to be working with such a great group of seniors. They are all so beautiful! Special thanks to Stefani, Sarah and Tia – you ladies are AMAZING!!!
Michelle is a very pretty, kind of quiet Senior at Fisher High School. Due to the crappy weather, we were unable to do any location photography, but these photos aren’t about the surroundings, they are about the beautiful person in front of the camera. She has a great smile when I could coax it out of her. She was amazing and a pleasure to photograph. Hair and Makeup by the awesome Sarah Kellems.
I knew Alex was going to be alot of fun. We did all kinds of fun photos in little out-of-the-way places on the University of Illinois Campus. Flowers, grasses, architecture, scupture and a drop dead gorgeous senior girl, its a recipe for AWESOMENESS!!!! ( and I love her freckles!!) Hair and makeup by the amazing Sarah Kellems
Check out Dion’s video from his Senior Sportrait shoot!
These are a few senior pictures of Jordan, who is my swimmer from last week! As with most seniors, he has lots of interests and hobbies to capture including his Superman t-shirt collection! We had a truly memorable photosession and some amazing light! He took everything in stride and really rocked his senior pictures! Stay tuned to the blog for the upcoming release of his video, produced by my assistant Carly Wilson. Special thanks to Jordan’s mom who thought of everything!

Megan is my first senior girl of 2012. When we set the date for the sitting, I was hopeful we would luck into some more incredible weather, but no luck. Cold, wind and rain/sleet forced us to stay in the studio to create magic. Hair and makeup artist Sarah Kellems created great looks for each outfit, ranging from fun and flirty to Audrey Hepburn elegance. I was my usual insane, “oh my god, we’ve gotta try this” self, and Parkland intern Carly Wilson was tasked with lights and props. Thru it all Megan was AWESOME. She totally rolled with all of my crazy ideas and contortions. I feel like we captured the heart of who she is with her senior photos. See for your self!
Senior shoot in January….OUTDOORS! We so totally lucked out with the weather yesterday! Kristian brought lots of great prop stuff, clothes and a totally awesome attitude! We walked around downtown Fisher, kicked back on a “beach”, and rocked some very cool photos in the studio!! But don’t just take my word for it, take a look below and tell me what you think!
Boyd’s senior portrait shoot was alot of fun in spite of the weather and the late date. We were in the woods where the wind was blocked and it was quite a bit warmer than the shoot the night before, which was a blessing. Boyd has gorgeous hair and the colors of the autumn woods really complimented his coloring. He smiled alot, which was great. He seemed to be having a good time. We shot a couple of looks in the studio, and then decided to play a bit with a football shot. I think it turned out pretty cool!
Mike was another senior that got a really cold, windy day for his senior portrait shoot. He was game though and toughed it out even though I think his teeth were chattering! Luckily the second half of his shoot was in the studio with his puppy, Mia. Mike wasn’t mr. smiley, but I like the images we got and I hope he does too.
Chaney is our senior from last night. Yep, we were shooting outside, freezing our butts off. However, as you will see, it was totally worth it! Chaney had some really great ideas for her senior pictures, and was game for anything! Finally we came into the studio so she could have some photos with her adorable dog and to show off her great new smile!
Justin got to be my first indoor senior of the season. While indoors was not necessarily his first choice, I think he had a pretty good time, and I think we got some Amazing shots!
Maggie’s senior portrait sitting is hands down the most unique shoot I have done yet. Her portraits are a combination senior portrait and senior photostory. If you cannot guess from the images, Maggie likes to bake….alot! She wanted something that would speak to her passion, so after a few formals in the studio, we went to her kitchen! She proceeded to demonstrate her awesome culinary skills and her “signature” recipe for blueberry muffins! I can tell you for a fact that they were very, very good!
Jordan is from Gibson City and his senior portrait sitting was just about what you would expect from someone who eats, sleeps and breathes soccer. The first half of the photoshoot were shots for mom. These we took in funky places and alleys in downtown Champaign. The second half of the shoot was the “fun” half and taken on the soccer fields at Parkland College. It didn’t really matter which half it was, cause Jordan totally rocked the shoot! Special thanks to Storm for helping with the lights and being the defender for the soccer shots.
Senior photos in the fall are so, so much fun! You have fallen leaves, temps that don’t make you break out in a sweat if you think too hard, the beautiful colors of the turning leaves, and some really, really sweet light. Dakota was very insistent about being outdoors in the woods, but also admitted being addicted to bling and other things that sparkle. Hmmm! I provided the woods in and around Fisher, and she brought the bling and a total willingness to try anything. We had such a blast and got such wonderful, wonderful images!!!!
Beautiful girl+ beautiful weather + beautiful locations = More Awesome Senior Pictures by Laura Trovillion Photography
Senior portraits are always alot of fun. When you add a gorgeous day, dramtic skies and a beautiful fashion savvy senior, it doesn’t get much better than that! Leah is a Senior at University High School in Urbana IL. She is very into photography and architecture and fashion, so the U of I campus was a great backdrop for her incredible photoshoot! We climbed trees, crawled over walls, dodged ultimate frisbee players, got upclose and personal with a rosebush and ultimately toughed out being swarmeed by mosquitoes to get some awesome photographs. Here are a few of my favs!
When Jacy and I sat down for her senior portrait planning session back in June, she was adamant about saving some shots for the fall, so she could be photographed in her grampa’s corn field. Its fall, and we totally lucked out with our timing; Jacy had a free hour, the weather was perfect and grampa had harvested just enough to give us several places to photograph. I had reupholstered a chair last spring, and my intern, Carli, and I decided that this would be its debut shoot. I love the contrast of the rough cornstalks against the soft of her dress and the velvet chair. The moody grey skies were a great backdrop for the yellow of the corn which just happens to be the same shade as her hair….And Jacy is beautiful as always! Special thanks to grampa for hauling our gear and props about and creating the perfect stage for our images!
Ashley’s senior portrait sitting was on the Uof I campus. She wanted trees, and flowers, and grasses and cool architecture, and what better place than campus! We started at Japan House with their beautiful scuptural trees and outdoor spaces. Then we hiked to the Idea Gardens, with gorgeous flowers and grasses. Finally we headed to east campus and Krannert, the Spurlock Museum and the Administration Building for cool brick, glass (for reflections) and water. Its great to keep finding and experiencing new places and new looks in ordinary places. Ashley was super fun to work with and we got some just incredible photos!!
Logan’s senior portrait sitting was such a trip! We planned very carefully to accomodate as many of her ideas and concepts as possible into a single shoot. We chose Lake of the Woods Botanical Gardens as our starting point because of the many different venues in one place and ease of access when hauling props! ( like a chaise lounge) As you can tell, we got several different looks from that wonderful location! She was also insistent upon a piano shot, and not a normal sitting on the bench playing the piano, but something dramatic and unusual. I think we managed it! And last, but not least, in keeping with my two recurring themes this year ( fire and water) we ended up in her backyard after dark, shooting the rain shot. Love it when it all comes together and totally ROCKS!!!
Jesse is from Monticello High School. Since it was so close, I just had to take her to Allerton Park for her senior portrait session! We found some great places to use as background, and Jesse was such a great model to work with! We were incredibly lucky that the weather cooled down and was just simply beautiful for her shoot! She had a special request that we do a few shots with her very best friends, so we have tacked on some BFF shots for you to see as well.
I give my senior athletes the option of having some sports action type shots taken as part of their senior portrait sitting. We had a hold-up getting to shoot Parker’s basketball action shots, but finally we did and here are a few for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy! ( I would love to get feedback on the last shot, Motion in BW )
Last night’s 2012 senior portrait was Carson. Carson came to the shoot with several really good ideas and a willingness to give any of my crazy ones a try. Carson is a three season, multisport athlete, but he is also a bit of a ham and chose to portray his athletic life in a less than serious, but accurate way. I think anyone who has school and sports is constantly trying to juggle everything! Then we got to shooting his football shots and he got down to business and intense, just look at those eyes! After the sports, we were off to the lake where we shot lots of images in and around. This one with the sky reflected in the water is probably one of my favs from the shoot. I love reflections especially when you get to do something really cool with them. Last but not least, we went to a favorite spot with a campfire. The sunset last night was amazing and was a perfect background!
This 2012 senior gets bonus points for effort. Not only was his senior portrait sitting on a hot July day, but he had just come from football practice. Parker doesn’t let any grass grow under his feet participating in multiple sports both during the school year AND during the summer. He wanted to find a way, in a single shot, to convey his passion for football, basketball and baseball. I think we managed it well. He was also very much about nature and outdoors, so we utilized an old bridge with lots of wonderful mature shade trees, and also the new nature preserve just south of Fisher. The meadows there were amazing,( but the mosquitos were vicious). He’s got a great smile (even if his mom had to ham it up to get him to laugh!) and lots of enthusiasm!
As you may have noticed, we do a few high school senior portraits here! As the end of summer looms, I start getting lots of calls wanting to know more about our senior portraits. So I am about to embark on a shameless plug for my studio and why you should bring your senior here!( ‘Cause its my blog and all!)
I am a one woman studio, I shoot on Monday and Wednesday in the late afternoon and early evening. I then schedule ordering sessions on Tuesday and Thursday. Yes, if you had your pictures done with me on Monday or Wednesday, I CAN have them ready the following day. You just have to tell me that is what you want to do! On days that I am not shooting or meeting with clients, I am shooting sports action for Fisher High School and area papers.
The ordering session is when you will see your images for the first time, projected bigger than life on our studio wall! I do expect you to place your order at this time, and half of the order total is required as a deposit with the balance due when everything is picked up! My LTPSENIOR Crew has coupon cards good for $$ off.
One very unique thing about my studio is that we don’t limit your poses. Often you will see packages that will say ” so many 5×7’s and 8x 10’s from 3 poses”. At Laura Trovillion Photography when we state” XX number of gift prints in a package,” every single one can be different.
This year we are offering custom wall prints framed, matted and framed, gallery wrapped canvas and on metal. If you haven’t seen these, you need to stop in and lay your eyes on these awesome options as well as our new wallet tins, and pursbooks!
Which brings me to our ever popular books. There are two book options: first is our Storybook. Its called a storybook, because it tells the WHOLE STORY of your senior shoot. It is a custom hardbound book, with layflat UV coated pages and unique layouts featuring multiple images per spread. Storybooks are available as an 8×8 or new 10 x 10 size. Can you say WOW? The second is our sessionbook – its a custom hardbound offset press book. The covers are custom designed and each page has one image in a fine art format. The session book is offered in the traditional 8×8 size and also our new 10 x 10 size.
I will contact you about a week before your senior portrait sitting to discuss what you want, what your parents want, where you want to go and how we are going to make this all happen. We make a plan. Plans are good. If we don’t have a plan before your sitting, we will end up spending a chunk of your sitting…making a plan. I am a pretty creative person and we have done some pretty wild things, but I have to have a starting point and an idea of what you want, and without those, we are just spitting into the wind….and that’s not fun for anybody!
As far as the sittings go, I am pretty much game for anything short of jumping out of a plane. I have shot all over Central Illinois and have found some really, really cool places to shoot. And I am constantly on the lookout for the next awesome idea/shooting venue!
And that my friends is my shameless plug for Laura Trovillion Photography Senior Portraits! We currently have a few openings still available in September, so give me a call at 217-239-1658. We will begin booking family sessions for holiday cards and gifts on October 3!
Stay tuned right here for my latest senior….Parker Perrero!
Literally, the heat index was like 115 degrees, but Connor is an absolute doll, so we made the best of it. We began in downtown Champaign, I just love the brown marble of the News Gazette building, and we were able to shoot on the north side, out of the sun and wind. Bentley, her dog, was the secondary star of this shoot venue, then he went home with grandma! We hit a couple of other fun places like the old train station,( I love the brick drive) and the outdoor seating at Cafe Luna and their incredible “grafitti” walls! Then we were off to campus and the quad while there are very few students around! And at the end of a long, very hot session, she had a bit of a splash in the fountain!!!
I had another awesome and unique Senior Portrait sitting last night! This senior with the wonderful smile is Cameron, and he is a study in contrasts. He gets bonus points for preparedness, and bigger points for being so laid back about it! He was equally at home on the soccer field or in the woods. Equally comfortable in flannel shirt and jeans or a suit….Tied his own tie with a full windsor knot, no less! I always think of him as being very outgoing and social, but his favorite place is in the woods, well away from anyone. That he had such a cool favorite spot where he wanted to be photographed just really made my day! Playing in and around the woods was wonderful, right up until the point that I started thinking about ticks being in the woods, and I got the “itchyheebeegeebees!” So here are a few sneak peek photos from Cameron’s senior shoot….Leave a comment and let me know what you think!!!
Marissa didn’t know it yet, but she’s definately an Anthropologie girl. Her concepts for her senior shoots and sense of style are anthro all the way. To capitalize on this, we needed a really cool location……and we found it at Allerton Park in Monticello. Beautiful vistas, incredible architecture and brickwork, reflecting pools and Fu Dog Gardens were all in one amazing location. We even saw deer! Marissa is an incredibly outgoing, bubbly kind of person, but she also has this very centered, calm, serious quality as well. She makes my job very easy, and I feel that we captured elements of both the fun side and the serious side of this 2012 senior. Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think!
Jacy chose to have a more urban theme for her Senior portraits, so we went down to Champaign and found all kinds of color and texture for backgrounds and a water fountain to play in! During our planning session, she brought up her love for sidewalk chalk, so we paid homage to her chalk artistry. Finally we went to the lake at Greenwood acres where she shows us just how elegant you can be in a beat-up rowboat! Silly, serious, intense, dramatic and just plain beautiful are all words that I would use to sum up Jacy’s senior photos. Take a look and let us know what you think!
Dylan’s senior pictures were an absolute blast to shoot, with one exception….It was a very hot, humid 97 degrees outside. Dylan however, kept his cool! We shot basketball, junkyard, rustic brick walls, letterman jackets, and then………..the lake. And thru it all, he was just amazing!!!
