I enjoy it when guys come in and actually talk about what they want to do for senior portraits.Even though he is kinda quiet, Nolan had some definite ideas and lots of game! ( and he gets bonus points for a) laughing at my lame joke and b) there was fire involved!) Yeah, he gets to see those first…..watch facebook in about a week to see some way cool baseball sportraits!
Hayden is a Fisher High School Senior. He has a quick smile and an intense stare. He’s a bit of the class clown with a passion for baseball and fishing. He promised his mom that he would give full co-operation for an hour, and then had enough fun that he gave us TWO Hours! Here is a quick peek at what we did!
I got to spend part of the lovely Columbus day holiday photographing the Handsfield family at their home near Mahomet. Such a fun family and with a lake in the backyard and a soccer goal in the front, we were able to capture them doing some of the things they love to do as a family!
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!
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!
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!
Its funny sometimes how life travels in circles. I find myself circling back in my photography to a place where my photos tell a story. Not an intricate full on tale, but a moment captured that tells you more about the person than just that they are beautiful. I tweaked this concept with my Class of 2012 Crew. We got a little crazy with some of them, but I wanted to really put an exclamation point to each story. Senior Pictures are such an amazing milestone in the lives of our kids and I feel that their stories should be told!
So, if you have a Class of 2012 Senior who wants more from his or her senior pictures, give us a call at 217-239-1658. We are currently booking for late July and August !
