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!!!
Jacob is a senior at GCMS who is graduating at the semester. He brought a bunch of hats, a willingness to ham-it-up for the camera, a guitar and a bow to his senior shoot. We had fun with all of it! How can you not have a blast with a guy who brings his bowtie and tophat!!!
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 mom went a step beyond what we have done thus far in that she wanted pictures with her daughter, but also her son.(much to his dismay) Boys and later Men, as a rule aren’t much into pictures, but I think this time we pulled it off. We got some abosolutely gorgeous shots of Tiffany, and then daughter Grace and son Landen. Then we put them all together and had a little fun! I hope she enjoys these images as much as I loved taking them! Hair and makeup by Stefani Smith.
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.
Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Paula and her daughter Jansyn as part of my series, Portraits of Women. This is my favorite of the images of them together. It speaks to me, reminds me of my mom, and makes me wish I had a similiar portrait for myself. Beautiful portraits are considered a luxury, but when the opportunity is gone, they become priceless.
