Class of 2014 is coming to a close. A bittersweet time for families and students. Lots of looking back at high school memories, and looking forward to the future. I’m so happy to be able to capture this time for seniors.
Today I’m blogging another senior mini session. This beautiful girl is a senior at Klein Oak HS, and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her and her mother. We chatted over the phone and decided what we wanted to accomplish during her session. They had not planned on taking senior portraits, but decided at the end of the year that it would be fun to document this special time. I’m so glad they called me and scheduled a session!
We wanted to beat the impending rain coming that weekend, so we chose to meet on a Wednesday evening which ended up being perfect! The weather was cloudy and breezy and the temperature was perfect.
I absolutely love doing mini sessions for several reasons. One, I can shoot very fast. I always plan out my shoots ahead of time and I know exactly what I’m going to do throughout the session. I always plan ahead for all of my sessions. Having said that, I do allow time for inspiration or to try new things, but for the most part I know what I am going to do during the session. Another reason that I love mini sessions is that for many people, it can be overwhelming to spend over an hour taking photos. Many people prefer a shorter shooting time and I totally respect that. I also don’t mind it when a family has one outfit that they like and we can get lots of looks just with one outfit. Finally, I have chosen several locations that I specifically love for mini sessions. I always deliver a wide variety of poses and ‘looks’ from my mini sessions.
So today’s blogged session took place in the senior’s neighborhood. We shot in one general area and then we went just outside of the neighborhood to get a few shots with her car and her personalized license plate. I love these personalized photos! Totally unique to the senior!
