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!

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 next senior up on the blog, is my last official 2019 high school senior!  And what a great way to wrap up this year.  Hannah is not only beautiful, but so sweet and was a pleasure to photograph.  I had a great time with her and her mom hitting all of the hot spots around Rollins campus.  I just love shooting there!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

 

THANK YOU class of 2019!  I loved having a small part in your senior year.  Thank you for trusting me with your senior photos!  Now, onto the class of 2020!  I’ll be releasing the next class info within the next week or two, so stay tuned!!

Next 2019 senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Fariha!  We had so much fun exploring and photographing around Rollins.  She is so sweet, and so pretty (and that hair!!!), of course we got lots of beautiful senior photos for her!  Rollins is one of my most favorite places to shoot.  There are great backgrounds for everyone there!  So, Fariha made a great choice in her location.

This was a shoot for one of my models, and it was so much fun!  For her bonus mini shoot, she wanted something a little different.  So, we tried a night shoot!  I’ve done night shoots before, and they are usually downtown (because of all the lights on the skyline), but the stars were just not aligning for us to shoot downtown.  So instead, we went to one of my more popular locations, Park Ave, but at night!  This was a lot different for me, since I am usually there bright and early, with no one around.  For this shoot, it was on a Friday evening, so of course, there were tons of people around.  Not the most convenient to shoot, but I think we did pretty well!  And even though this dancer told me that she wasn’t going to do any dance photos this shoot, we ended up doing a couple ;).  I can’t help it! I love to shoot dancers!  And she was so awesome, she was happy to oblige.

Here are a couple of sneak peeks from our fun night shoot.  I usually prefer color, but for the dance ones, I am more drawn to it in black and white!  I will leave it up to her to see which way she prefers it:
