Here are a few more images from my senior shoot with Leighanne, a senior at Urbana High School. Super fun and creative and absolutely gorgeous as well!
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
I would never reccommend a senior wait this late in the year to get senior pictures. Sometimes, though, everything just works out beautifully. Tim is one of those crazy busy seniors that just didn’t have time for photos until this week! We lucked into a beautiful day weather-wise and the gardens at Lake of the Woods were gorgeous as well. Because Theatre and Music are two of his passions, it was only fitting to finish his senior session on the set of his last play at Mahomet High School, and a final chord on the beautiful grand piano. Tim was a pleasure to finally photograph and I wish him luck at Minnesota!
Life comes full circle. I first photographed Amy as a Fisher High School Senior. Then she met Matt and fell in love, so I photographed their beautiful engagement portraits. Last year we created gorgeous portraits of Amy with her Mom. And now I have the honor of photographing Matt and Amy anticipating their first child. Its things like this that make me so happy!
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.
This darling little diva was a pleasure to photograph, just to see what she would do next. I didn’t get a lot of the traditional gummy grin pictures, but the variety of her expressions is just adorable.
Senior boys with trucks, cowboy hats and flaming bats…what more could a photographer want? I had a great time photographing Brendan’s senior portraits this week. We totally lucked out with nice weather, not warm enough to go without a coat, but at least we weren’t freezing to death, it is February after all! I wish him luck at SIU where he will be majoring in Civil Engineering!
I just love photographing seniors. We have such fun, especially when they are as pretty as Miranda! Hair and makeup by Donna Eckerty.
I love it when I learn new stuff from the seniors I photograph, and I definately learned all kinds of cool automotive tidbits from Darren. A senior at Gibson City, a member of FFA, and a three sport athlete, this guy knows his way around a car engine! We lucked into perfect fall weather, found some way cool vintage cars and had a whole lot of fun!
Sarah is one of my incredibly talented hair and makeup stylists, who just happens to be expecting her second daughter! When I had this idea for glam maternity shots, I think she realized I truly was crazy. But, I won her over and we did an absolutely amazing maternity photosession centered around feeling beautiful while expecting. We also included her darling daughter and hubby for a few fun photos as well!! Sarah, thank you so much, I hope you love these!
Lindsey and Faisal came to me for some beautiful couple photos to hang in their home…….except Faisal did NOT want his picture taken. People need to understand that when they tell me how much they hate having their photo taken, I consider that a challenge. Fortunately for Faisal, I got some fantastic photos of both him alone and the two of them together right away, so we could turn him loose to go do his thing, and the girls could get down to some seriously fun photography!!!!! Lindsey had no qualms about having her photo taken, and the camera just loves her! She is so full of life and laughter and color and fun! Hair and Makeup by Stefani Smith!
The Friedman family took advantage of our complimentary family session that is given to all of our Laura Trovillion Photography seniors. The Friedman’s and I headed to Lake of the Woods in Mahomet on a gorgeous Friday evening. We proceeded to have a lot of fun and got a little crazy too!
Amy contacted me way back in April about doing a mother-daughter photo shoot with her mom for Mother’s day….except with Amy and her husband graduating college and moving, it couldn’t happen till last week! Chris was totally surprised, and Amy showed us her girly side. It was a wonderful shoot with these two women! Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems.
This photo lovestory is about Andrea and Luke. They met thru the internet, fell in love, acquired a house, three dogs and a cat. Their wedding is in August. Andrea is so beautiful and vivacious and just plain funny. She danced and laughed and snuggled with Luke. Luke considered himself more of a handsome prop. He was anything but a prop, rubbing noses and slow dancing with his soon-to-be wife. And he got a big smile on his face whenever he talked about Andrea. Theirs isn’t a conventional fairytale, its a beautiful lovestory. Hair and makeup by Leah Brown.
OMG!!!! Caitlin is a quiet, laidback, pretty 16 year old. Her mom Melinda decided to surprise her with a mother/daughter contemporary portrait shoot at our studio. And Caitlin came to life in front of my camera. She became this self confident, graceful, gorgeous modelesque person that had been lurking beneath that shy shell. And mom did pretty well too! Their images of them together are a real treat, as you can see just how much they look alike! The first image you will see here is what is referred to as a beauty shot. Its pretty much all about the face and not alot of people can pull this one off, but Caitlin totally rocked it. That shot says it all! Hair and makeup by the talented and wonderful Stefani Smith.
Morgan is a beautiful senior from Mahomet who wanted some fun, unique images before graduation. Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems.
Crystal used her 25th wedding anniversary as a reason to indulge in a contemporary portrait session. She is an amazing woman with a unique sense of humor and we had a great time. I had several klutz moments, but we all survived, and there are some really wonderful images to show for it!
It doesn’t seem like a year ago that we were photographing Mimi as a newborn, but it has indeed. Now she is no longer baby, she is moving into the great realm of toddler and all of the joys and gray hair that come with it! Happy Birthday baby girl!!!
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!
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!
I just love shooting engagement photos. It is so much fun to shoot two people in that wonderful so-much-in-love stage. Barbara and John are no exception! We had a wonderful time in the overcast October weather at Lake of the Woods. Its hard not to take awesome photos with a gorgeous couple, beautiful light and a very cool motorcycle!
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!
Now at Laura Trovillion Photography you can get your favorite senior, infant/toddler or family photo on a purse! Now, you can have something functional that is also uniquely yours! This first offering is a small purse, just big enough for a wallet, keys, phone and compact, but perfect for on the go. The flap, which is the purse image panel, is removeable, so it can be updated with you newest images. A larger messenger type bag will be arriving in the coming weeks and we will be sure to let you know when they get here! In honor of Mother’s Day, both bags will be on sale during the month of May!
Sam is my first 2011 senior girl! We shot her portraits on her farm and in and around Gibson City. Had to get really creative to represent some of her sports, like high jump and pole vault, but I think we pulled it off. She totally rocked her shoot and I think she is just amazing!
