Where to go for senior portraits? How about downtown!

I love senior photography! One thing that I always enjoy when I work with high school seniors is figuring out where to go.  I try to blog most of my senior sessions so that I can refer back to them with future clients.  For this session I found a "new" location :) (obviously it is not new, just new to me), and it worked really well!

First we did some formal dress portraits in a studio setting.  (That's a pretentious way to say my living room, which I sometimes use as a studio.)

Then we went downtown.  I love formal dress in an urban setting!  We got quite a few with her in this gorgeous formal.

This beautiful girl is gorgeous inside & out.  She was prom queen last year, and homecoming queen this year.  But she is also smart, kind, so much fun, and on the road to success!  I can't wait to see where she goes next.

She was really organized, with her outfits laid out right down to the accessories, in the back of the car.  It is tricky to change clothes in the car, but girls are good at that, right?

We ran out of light, but not out of ideas!  I love to use off-camera flash, and this was the perfect opportunity.  (What is the wrong time to use off-camera flash in a session?  When chasing a 2 year old around a park. :) )

I totally love the lights behind her!  I had so much fun with this session - thanks so much to this amazing senior and her mom!

I love doing sessions at great places like this these, but for lots of other session locations, see this blog page here. If you're interested in senior portraits, I'd love to talk about it - you can give me a call or email and we can chat.
