Senior portraits

Senior portraits - Winter Park, FL

You know when someone introduces you to a great location and you can't wait to share it with someone else?!  That's how it was when Emily introduced me to Hannibal Square in Winter Park, FL. We had such a good time there during her senior session, I couldn't wait to head back there again.  So when Kloe and her mom, Crystal, asked me for recommendations for photo locations in that area - I couldn't resist including Hannibal Square.  I was so thrilled when that's the spot they chose!  I knew it would be quiet, beautiful and picturesque for Kloe's senior shoot.  

It truly did not disappoint!  Kloe was a natural in front of the camera.  Her stunning beauty and easy going spirit made our time together so much fun!!

Here are a few of my favorites :)

It's only a few short months before Kloe is off on a new adventure at USF.  I'm so excited for her and what her future holds. 

Congratulations, Kloe! And best wishes to the class of 2018!!

Senior portraits - Melbourne Beach, FL

It's been too quiet on here lately.  But don't mistake that for a quiet time of year.  There's a lot going on over here and I'd love to include you in the fun! :)

Let me catch you up a bit by sharing some highlights from a recent senior portrait session.  Melbourne Beach is a quaint nearby town nestled in between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River.  That means the option of having a portrait session start on the beach and wind up at the river in time for a sunset is a very doable idea.  And that's exactly what we did with Caroline!

I love that she included her dog as well!

And then the sun set on our photo session!

It was such a fun time together!  These are the sessions that make my heart beat fast.  I hope you can scheduled a time with me soon.  I'd love to connect with you :)

Senior portraits - Winter Park, FL

I know I've said this before.  In fact, I would venture to guess I've said this every time I walk away from another senior portrait session.  "I absolutely love photo sessions with seniors!"  I love the age, the enthusiasm, the energy, the creativity.  I'm never quite sure who has more fun, me or the senior!  

This session was no exception. Emily asked for an urban setting, so we met in Winter Park on Park Avenue.  What a portrait playground!  So many options.  She brought her ukulele, a couple of outfits and a heart ready for adventure :)

Here are just a few of my favorites from that perfect afternoon.

Emily has some very exciting adventures for her on the horizon.  For now, I'm so grateful I could spend this evening with her and her mom and sister.  Sweet memories were made and captured before the next chapter of her life begins.

Congratulations, Emily!

Senior portraits - Gleason Park

I know I've mentioned this before - but I absolutely love senior photo sessions!  The creativity and energy in that age group is such a kick to work with.  I will always bring photo ideas to any session, but I've noticed it doesn't take long for a senior to jump in with some fabulous ideas of their own.  

When I met with Savannah at a nearby park, I knew we would have a lot fun and be able to capture some great images.

Total added bonus - her dog wound up in the shoot as well!

If you're a senior in high school, I would love to share some time with you and capture some great memories.  This year will go faster than you can imagine.  Give me a call and reserve your spot.  You'll be walking down that graduation aisle before you know it! ;)

Senior portraits - Rollins College

These two beauties were the perfect combination for a fun photo session - sisters AND seniors! I couldn't be happier :)  Then when they decided on Rollins College for the location, I knew it would be a very memorable afternoon.  

We chased the light together until the sun had set.  Here are a few of my favorites!

Of course, we made time for individual portraits as well. 

These two were incredible models!

Cheers to the class of 2018!!

Location, location, location!

Shortly after a new client contacts me, the question inevitably comes up as to where I would recommend we do a photo session.  Where would be a good location for us to do the shoot?  I get it!  It's usually the next big decision after you make the choice to book a photo session.  And quite honestly, there are so many options!  I actually have a list that I keep of different locations based on the style.  Are you interested in the beach style, or near the river?

 Would you prefer lots of trees or more of an urban feel?

How about wide open fields or a worn and abandoned look?

No matter what feel you're looking for, I'm excited about finding the perfect location for you and making it memorable and fun!!  Are you looking for something specific that I haven't even mentioned here?  Leave a comment and let me know.  We can work together and make it happen!

Senior portrait session - Melbourne Beach, Florida

Most of the high school graduations have come and gone in our area and summer is officially in the air!  With just a few days left of this girl's high school career, we managed to grab a couple of photo hours down near the water.  It was late afternoon and that incredible golden light was streaming onto the beach.  Kiernan was such a model!!

Congratulations, Kiernan . . .and the whole class of 2017! 

The best years are ahead!!
