Today’s high school senior photography is quite different from the velvet drape studio shots used back in the 80’s when I was a senior. These days, I photograph most of my seniors outdoors in our fabulous and varied environment at River Valley Ranch. Usually the seniors bring 3 or 4 outfits along with their letter jacket or their snowboard – whatever “Props” make them feel most comfortable. I work each individual to get the most relaxed and natural images possible and help with outfit ideas and styling as we go through the different locations. I post the 100 or so images online where “2 for 1” reprints are available.
Each portrait session lasts between an hour and an hour and a half and I make the time we spend together fun and relaxed allowing for images that truly capture the essence of each individual at this pivotal point in their lives.
