Kylee kicked off my senior portrait sessions for the year and I loved using this Richmond area location! We decided to something urban but a little more unique than the typical shockoe bottom/canal walk/belle isle set. So, we headed over to Scott's Addition and it did not disappoint! We hadn't realized Shamrock the Block was also going on that day, so traffic was a bit unfun, but it all worked out. Kylee had her friend on scene to help out, but she didn't need much to get her showing off her smile. Her range of expressions was my absolute favorite! From smiling, to giggling, to serious, and then playful. Thanks for being YOU, Kylee - this was a great session and I love your senior pictures!
It's Caroline's turn to be in front of the lens and oh my gosh, isn't she gorgeous? We started out at Waves Hair Studio for her hair and makeup by Stacey and Shante and she went with straight locks and a subtle pastel palette for her makeup, giving her a beautiful fresh look (see Behind The Scenes on Instagram). We arrived in Carytown and headed out in search of a brick wall and whatever else caught our eye. We found her brick wall as well as some other fun places to pose around town. Her black dress looked great just about everywhere we went and the casual jeans and rose-colored top looked great on her, but that blue patterned top was just amazing for pictures! When all was said and done, we had a wonderful variety of images for Caroline's gallery reveal! Here are some of her favorites!!
Thank you Caroline for coming to me for your senior portrait experience! Best wishes for an amazing senior year!
So many things to love about Megan's session at Belle Isle as we kick off senior portrait fall sessions!
We started out with hair at Waves Hair Studio in Ashland, VA. Stacey did a beautiful set of soft curls on Megan (as seen on Instagram) and then Cameron started on her perfect makeup! Megan is a girl who really doesn't need makeup, but it really puts a finishing touch and adds to the polished look you want for senior pictures!
Once downtown, we trekked over the pedestrian bridge to Belle Isle and we were able to create some gorgeous images for Megan! From her blue top to her white dress, to her yellow dress and one perfect hat, every outfit was stunning on her! Take a look below and you can see what I mean.
Thank you Megan for bringing such awesomeness to your senior picture session!! I just LOVE your images. I can't wait to see where life takes you after high school, I'm thinking it will be something amazing!
Oh sweet Taylor! What an absolutely fabulous senior session you had! I'm not even sure where to start here. It was the perfect storm of beautiful weather, perfect outfit choices, beautiful smiles, and a really adorable doggie named Sawyer!
We had a great time venturing over to Belle Isle on the James River in Richmond VA on this gorgeous end-of-summer day! With the help of her parents, who were a joy to have with us and also necessary to help manage the four-legged friend, we got some beautiful shots of Taylor with Sawyer! There is no doubt that this girl LOVES her dog! From natural fields, to river rocks, to nighttime city scenes on the bridge, this session has a ton of variety!
Thanks Taylor for trusting me with your senior portraits this year! Best wishes to you as you finish your senior year at Cosby High School and plan for a bright future!
Photographing Devin at Hanover Fire Station #3 was lots of fun! As a student in the Hanover Fire and EMT program at Hanover High School in partnership with Hanover Fire/EMS and J. Sargeant Reynolds, Devin is receiving the basic training necessary to be an EMT or Firefighter!
We started off at the studio for his tux yearbook photo and a few studio style shots of him in uniform. Our next location was the fire station where you could see Devin was in his element and enjoying himself. The guys on duty were so helpful in moving trucks and getting Devin to smile :)
After we got some fun shots around the station and with all the shiny emergency vehicles, we ventured outside to get some photos of just Devin, Devin with his sister Erika, and of course, Devin with his truck!
Thanks Akers family for having me out for Devin's senior portraits! It was a blast and I'm so happy with what we created!
Canal Walk & Shiplock Park Senior Portraits with James River High School Class of 2017 Senior - Allison
I had a great time at Allison's senior portrait session featuring locations such as Canal Walk and Shiplock Park by the river in downtown Richmond. With the threat of rain later in the evening, we forged ahead with hair and makeup by the amazing Cameron Carson at my studio space in Ashland! With fresh hair and makeup, we did a set of drape photos for the yearbook and then we were on our way to beat the rain!
First stop was the mural area of the Canal Walk! You'll see from Allison's photos, we captured so many different angles and backgrounds here - and that's why it's always so popular! Allison is such a natural beauty with one of the prettiest smiles I've seen. Every time I took a peek at the back of my camera, I was thrilled to see how the camera LOVED her!
Our next stop was Shiplock Park. At this point the skies were looking a bit more threatening, but we managed to get another great set of unique images for Allison here.
Thanks again Allison for working with me to create your beautiful senior photos! Best wishes to you as you finish your senior year at James River High School and when you head off to college in the fall! Keep me posted where you decide to go!
Michael's summer session at Pole Green Park in Hanover County was practically perfect and it's one of my favorites! The light was just right (y'all know how photographers love the good light, right?) and Michael was easy going and relaxed. After a quick set of tux photos for the yearbook, we were on our way to the park to set the stage for some amazing senior portraits! Greenery, soccer goals, fences, and a skate park would prove to be perfect backdrops for this laid-back high school senior.
We had a great time at Michael's gallery reveal going through his proofs and I love the final set of images he and his family selected. Take a look and let me know if you're interested in booking your own senior portrait session!
