Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Madison!  I think the class of 2020 is off to a great start!  I am having so much fun with these seniors.  Now, this next senior, I have known for a very long time.  Since elementary school!  (I’m excited to be photographing kids that have grown up with my own)  Madison is so sweet and we had so much fun on her deluxe (2 location) session.  The two locations that she chose were Rollins and downtown Orlando.  I love when there is a deluxe session, that they choose two totally different types of locations.  That way you have such a wide variety of looks in your photos!  We got very lucky with the downtown shoot.  As you know, it is summer.  Which means afternoon thunderstorms.  Every day.  And since we were going to do an evening shoot downtown, we were taking a big chance.  And while there were tons of dark clouds, we managed to avoid the rain.  AND as a bonus, we had a great breeze to shoot with (since it was about to storm 😉 ).

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

Next senior up on the blog is Zachary!  He is such a great guy!  I photographed his older brother a couple of years ago, AND then I photographed his entire family too!  That was the first time I met him.  Now, he may not have been totally excited to wake up early for a photo shoot on his summer break ;), but he was a great sport and did it for his mom.  And I tried to make it as painless as possible for him.  I tell the guys that I shoot, I can get a lot of great shots in a short amount of time IF they aren’t totally into it.  Other guys don’t mind, and end up having fun, so we take a little longer.  It is completely up to the comfort level of each senior.  That’s why I don’t have specific session times, and why I only shoot one senior per day.  The shoot takes as long as it takes!  Some are 45 minutes, some are closer to 2 hours.  (They still all end up with around the same amount of photos to choose from).  The senior shoots are about the SENIOR.  Whatever they want, is what they get!

Next senior up on the boy is Stephan!  I am so excited to have more guys on my calendar this summer!  I usually get a couple every year, but this year is off to a great start with guys booking their shoots too.  Note to the senior guys, I promise, I will make this as painless as possible for you.  No crazy posing, no 3 hour sessions.  Just relaxed, and having somewhat of a good time ;), and getting you lots of great photos.  Not to mention, I’m sure you will score some points with mom!  She might even take you out to breakfast after the shoot 😉

Stephan was great.  Such a nice guy.  Totally relaxed and laid back for his shoot.  He didn’t want a location with a lot of people around, so we chose Kraft Azalea.  It was perfect for him.  Lots of nature, not a lot of people, and not a big spread out location.  I think he even had a little bit of fun 😉

The class of 2020 is off to a great start!  The next senior up on the blog is the gorgeous Madison!  We had so much fun out at the beach for our sunrise shoot.  She had a special request for her shoot (which I LOVE!!  If you have something that you like or want to try on your shoot, tell me! This shoot is all about YOU, so I want you to get the senior photos that you really want.)  Madison had been following me for a while, and she saw a beach photo that I had done a few years ago.  It was on a morning that didn’t have a nice sunrise, so I went for a darker photo.  Almost looked like it could have been taken at night,  Totally different than my usual sunrise photos.  No problem!  With lighting, I can make it look darker and moodier.  And then in the next shot, have it back to a sunny beach scene.

Here are some sneak peeks from her shoot (including the dark sunrise):
