This beautiful senior has a nice camera and really loves photography. She spends some of her free time with friends practicing this art on each other. She was very close to having friend photograph her senior session.

In the end she decided it was best to hire a professional. She was so happy she did!

Madelaine was a pro at posting and didn’t need too much direction. I am happy to provide direction when needed but she was very good in front of the camera.

I love working closely with seniors, meeting them ahead of time to get to know them so that they feel comfortable calling me when they have a concern. Sometimes your senior photo session can have some hiccups. For example, you want a sunny sky but the day of your scheduled portrait session it’s cloudy. In those cases it’s best to call your photographer to discuss, which is exactly what this savvy senior did!

It can be disappointing to imagine your images one way and have them turn out another.

Madelaine felt this and called me to voice her concern and disappointment.  The light that day was not how she imagined her senior session to look. We rescheduled for another day and the light turned out perfect! It was as simple as that.

She also requested her images to be taken in the middle of the day when it was the most sunny. With a little coaching I was able to convince her to shoot the session closer to sunset, when the sun is closer to the horizon for that dreamy soft light. She put her trust in me, as the professional, to know what I was talking about. This can sometimes be difficult, I will admit. The outcome of her session could not have turned out better. We were able to fit in three different locations (in relative close proximity to each other) at the perfect time, the light couldn’t have been more beautiful and neither could Madelaine. Just take a look at these images and you’ll agree!
