I had a great time working with this local Gwinnett student on her senior portraits. She was friendly, relaxed, and ready to start shooting at our appointment first thing in the morning. One of the goals for a photographer is to catch the personality of the subject in their work, but that often depends on the subject. No problem here, she did great.

Her teal dress complimented her perfectly and really gave the images an added pop. We decided on a scenic location where a barn and wildflowers would provide the photographs an interesting backdrop without being distracting.

As a double athlete at her school, she wanted some of the photos to display her love of sports. I love to tailor photography towards the subjects’ interests and in this photo she got to show off her softball skills.

Photographing high school seniors is memorable because you’re catching them at a significant and special time of their lives filled with promise. It’s a bright future that she has to look forward to after high school!

Senior Portrait Time

School is almost back in session, and for rising high school seniors that means a hope-filled, exciting year full of activities, studies, and fun. For seniors wanting to commemorate that time of their life nothing is more special than having your senior portrait made.

While most schools will arrange for the traditional yearbook image, more and more people are turning to professional photographers to take individualized casual photos of their senior. With interesting locations, special interest themes (like sports, music, etc.), and relaxed poses, these photographs can truly represent the student.

This senior and I had a great time on his photo shoot. For me each shoot is like a mini-adventure where I get to explore, hangout with interesting people, and take part in someone’s memories. What could be better than that?

Springtime Portrait Session

Springtime in Atlanta is always a great time of year with the variety of flowering plants, and I can’t imagine anywhere else being quite as pretty when they are all in bloom. As I like to incorporate scenery into my portraits I wanted to take advantage of all of the outdoor beauty with a portrait photo session.

This young model was wonderful to work with, looks beautiful, and was even agreeable with getting up early for the morning shoot. While I usually shy away from special effects, I added antiquing which seemed appropriate for this first shot. The second shot was a concept photograph of which we took advantage of our surroundings and streaming light.

The third was the model purely her being herself.  I usually give models minimal instruction if the they are relaxed and natural, which she was.

The fourth picture we decided to try after we thought we had finished for the day, using a dogwood tree’s blossoms of which Atlanta is famous.
