School year has started!  And I am happy to share the next senior for the class of 2020, Elizabeth!  We had a great time on her deluxe (2 location) session.  Such a sweet, laid back beautiful girl, who was so much fun to photograph.  The two locations that she chose were Park Ave and Rollins.  Two great locations, and very close together so it minimized our travel time.  And even though it was really hot out, we started early enough, so it was totally bearable!  Yes, it may stink having to wake up early on a day off, but it is really worth it, when we aren’t sweating like crazy 😉 .  So, if you have been putting off scheduling your senior session until it cools off, remember, we are in Florida.  It doesn’t really cool off!  BUT, I have ways to make sure you still look great and refreshed for your senior photos.  So, don’t put it off any longer!  Contact me to get your date scheduled!

Now, back to Elizabeth!  Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

Next senior up on the blog is beautiful Erin!  I met Erin since she was a little kindergartener, so it is a trip seeing her all grown up now.  So gorgeous, and so natural in front of the camera!  She just fell into her poses, and needed very little direction. We had a great time on her deluxe (2 location) session.  The two locations she chose were the beach and Rollins.  Two great choices!  Our beach morning was overcast, but still beautiful.  And at least the rain held off until the very end of our shoot.  The next morning at Rollins was picture perfect.  We have so many amazing photos, it was difficult to pick just a few to share for the sneak peeks (but of course I did!).

Here are some sneak peeks from our shoots:

The next two seniors up on my blog are friends, so they wanted to do their sessions at the same time.  No problem!  I’m happy to do that for seniors who want it.  You BOTH get your own session and your own gallery, I’m just doing the shoot at the same time.  And as a little bonus, I’ll get a few photos of you and your friend together (if that is what you want).

We had a great time on our shoot at Rollins.  Both guys were a lot of fun and I got lots of great photos of them.  AND we got to play with a little fire!  On some shoots, when you want something a little different for your sports photos, I can bring fire.  YES it is real, and YES it is totally safe.  Your senior photos are about YOU, so if you know what you want, tell me, and I’ll do what I can to make it happen!

Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Adison!  Not only is she ridiculously adorable, she is such a sweetheart too!  And so organized and on the ball!  I had to do pretty much no prep with her, because she had it all handled.   I met her mom and older sister a few years ago, and now it is Adison’s turn.  I was so touched that she knew she wanted to use me for her senior photos.  She chose the same location as her sister (good taste runs in the family!).  Rollins has been the hot spot for sure this summer.  With good reason.  It has lots of different backgrounds, pretty much no one there at the time we go, and great light!  But just because lots of people go there, that doesn’t mean everyone’s photos will look the same.  Different personalities, different parts of campus, all lead to your own beautiful photos.

Here are a few sneak peeks from Adison’s shoot:

And for those 2020 seniors who haven’t yet scheduled their session, I am now booking fall dates!  As soon as school starts, weekends tend to fill up quickly, so don’t wait to get on my calendar.  I’d love to meet you and get you some beautiful senior photos!

Next beautiful senior up on the blog is Grace!  Grace has had several of her friends use me for their senior photos, and I was so touched that she was 100% certain that she wanted to use me too!  She, like most seniors, was a little nervous about her shoot.  But like I tell everyone, this is a no-stress environment.  It’s time to relax and have fun, and the beautiful photos will follow.  And in Grace’s shoot, that was certainly true!  I had a great time getting to know her, and I got so many great photos of her.  She is such a natural beauty and a sweetheart!  And as a bonus, by the end of her shoot, she ROCKED her serious face!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot at Rollins:

 

For those seniors who have not yet scheduled their session, I only have a couple of dates available before school starts.  If you are wanting a shoot, contact me ASAP to get one of these last days before school starts!!

The next senior up on the blog, is a super sweet, beautiful girl!  Cierra and her mom chose Rollins as the location for her shoot.  We had so much fun together!  She told me at the start that this was something she was doing for her mom.  But it wasn’t long into our session that she started relaxing and having fun.  I tell you, she was a natural in front of the camera!  And all smiles!  I have so many beautiful photos of her from our shoot, it was hard to pick just a few for her sneak peeks.  I can’t wait for her and mom to see ALL of them.  But for now, sneak peeks will have to do 😉

I’m back from vacation, and ready to meet some new seniors!  The next senior up on the blog is Tyler.  He brought the whole fam with him to his shoot, and we all had so much fun!  I’m loving that more and more guys are booking this year!  Guys, I promise, it isn’t as bad as going to take the yearbook photo.  I can be quick (if you want me to), we will have fun, we will get lots of great photos, and you will score some major brownie points with mom.  She will probably even take you out to breakfast after your shoot ;).  Tyler was so great (and yes, he got to go out to breakfast afterwards!), and was nice and relaxed in front of the camera.  I had a great time getting to know Tyler and his family!

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 😉 ).

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!
