And that is saying a lot! I have met so many nice seniors (I am really believing that teenagers get a bad rep, because all I have worked with, have been great kids!), but this guy was probably the nicest yet! He has been following my work for over a year now, and knows most of the people in my senior gallery! Not to mention, he has been referring me around, even though he had never personally had a session with me. I told you, REALLY nice guy!
We had our session at Kraft Azalea, and the timing was perfect. An hour before the session, it was raining. And when we were finishing up, rain was approaching again. Perfect timing, right?!
And at the very end, he wanted some goof off shots. Hey, no problem! I think he was trying to top another senior’s jump (from my site). Sorry, I don’t think anyone will be able to top hers, BUT you came pretty darn close! LOL!
Thanks for a very fun session!
Second to last of the 2008 seniors, is another gorgeous girl! We were really moving along with our session, when we noticed some rain off in the distance. We thought we could just wait it out and it would pass in a minute. Well, we ended up waiting it out in a little boathouse for over an hour! But on the upside, I got to talk with her and get to know her a lot better than I usually get to know my clients! The time flew by as we chatted along, and eventually, the rain DID stop! We picked up the session again, and finished off really well!
I know she was nervous about how they would turn out, but, as I assured her, she looked gorgeous, and her photos would be gorgeous. Here is a little sneak peek to ease her mind! LOL!
I told you, you looked great! I’ll get the rest done ASAP, so you can be able to see them before you leave for school. Thanks for a great session!
Yes, this is MY big guy! It is so rare that he actually WANTS me to take his photo (unlike his camera hog little brother!). But, he recently got new glasses, and wanted some new photos to celebrate his “new look”. I can’t resist that! He is growing up WAY too fast. He will be in middle school next year (and it breaks my heart!).
Isn’t he so handsome?!
I was so excited to photograph this family. My husband worked with him a few years ago, and they have the most beautiful girls! Who WOULDN’T want to photograph them!
Even though we started relatively early in the day, it was still HOT, HOT, HOT! *Note to those wanting summer sessions, schedule for EARLY in the morning, or right around 7pm. That way you won’t melt!* Even though it was hot out, the girls were so good! They handled the session like real troopers! LOL!
Aren’t they just gorgeous?!
Normally, I just give 2 sneaks for family sessions. HOWEVER, I took a little long in getting them their sneak peeks up, so here is a bonus peek! (Not to mention, I LOVE this shot!)
One of my reps, didn’t get to have his complete session a couple of weeks ago. He wanted some soccer shots, but the soccer field near where we were shooting was being re-sodded. So, we did a little mini session yesterday to get those last ones in for him.
*Little disclaimer – my husband is a firefighter, and was with us on this shoot. He was standing just outside the frame with fire extinguisher JUST IN CASE! It is completely safe, because we aren’t actually lighting the ball, we are lighting fumes on the ball, and it burns itself out very quickly. But, I had to have my personal firefighter there just incase!*
Now for any seniors that are planning on booking with me, and are in sports, this IS an option for the end or your session. You will just need to bring old equipment (balls, or bats, or sticks, or rackets, etc). They most likely will be unharmed, but there always is the chance of them getting a little singed! And I will need to know when you are booking that you want to do this. I have to be able to bring my firefighter with me!
My Winter Springs High spokesmodel! She was such a sweet and fun girl, who had an “inner model” that was just dying to come out! And she did come out! She relaxed and seemed to be having a great time on her model shoot (and others in the park thought that she was a real model on a shoot too!). And when my subject is having fun, of course, I have fun too!
Here are your sneak peeks, as promised!
And now all of my senior reps have been photographed! If you know any of my reps, and want to see their entire sessions, just ask them! (Well, ask them in about a week, when I am done proofing all of them! LOL!).
They were all so great to work with, and I look forward to working with you all more this coming school year.
Well, I was wrong before. I DID get two guy senior reps! This guy is from Lake Brantley High School. And he was just as nice as could be! Very comfortable and laid back, and didn’t even mind getting into his *very* warm fencing uniform for me (warm uniform + almost summer temperatures = torture!).
Here are your sneak peeks!
