I hear from a lot of high school seniors that there just isn’t enough time during their school portraits to get images that really reflect who they are as people. Those photos are created for use in the yearbook, and they usually look pretty similar for each student. So several times a year, I’m contacted by teenagers and their parents to create something unique for them. They want images that showcase their personalities, their interests, and their natural expressions, instead of the command to “Smile!”. My seniors wants something modern and cool; their parents want those expressions that are “so them”.
When Kat and her mother came to the studio to discuss Kat’s portraits, I was excited to hear about her style, her hobbies, and of course, what she wanted her images to look like. I loved what they had in mind, and I was stoked to create these images for them. I knew it was going to be an awesome afternoon, and I wasn’t disappointed. Kat is so creative and fun to be around that the time flew by, and before I knew it the sun was setting and we were finished. And the photographs we created? See for yourself. . .
