All about YOU! ~ Elko Senior Photographer

Senior Portraits are so much fun!  I love being able to capture who these amazing young people are at this moment in time.

I have very fond memories of my senior portrait session.  I was a totally awkward band geek in High School.  I didn’t have horrible self esteem, but I never felt very pretty either.  I loved feeling like a star for the day (or hour as it was).  For the first time when I looked at my portraits I actually thought I looked pretty.  It wasn’t really that anything had changed either.  I had taken a little extra time with my hair and makeup but hadn’t gone all out.  I still love that portrait, and it still hangs in my parents house.  I truly hope that I can create images for these young people that they will look back on the same way.

Beautiful, amazing, full of life and all the worlds opportunities in front of them.

And not just that killer shot that you will look back on for years to come, but some fun shots too because what brings more joy than that cap and gown, knowing that High School is OVER!  :)

Snowy weather in the canyon as far as the road is open gives way to clear weather and beautiful backdrops at the bottom.

Even an actively snowy day can create magic.

Portraits in Snow

Of course we might get lucky and have some snow melt and the first buds of green and color popping through.

Don’t wait any longer!  You want to have those images in time to send out with announcements.

And of course if the weather turns really nasty we can always hang out in the Studio.  Signature Studio Sessions are a great option any time of year.

Spring Creek HS Senior ~ Ed

Senior in snow with yellow trees

Ed is AWESOME.  Ed contacted me about his Senior pictures during the crush to get them done and out before graduation.  He works with Lacy, another one of my Spring Creek HS Seniors, and had loved her pictures.  The weather this spring has been absolutely nuts.  Snow, wind rain, oh.. who am I kidding mostly snow.   The day we were scheduled to do Ed’s pictures was no different.  What to do, what to do?  Ed had to work out in Lamoille that afternoon anyways so I told him let’s go for it.  Let’s at least try to get a few.  Bare minimum we should be able to at least get a good one to send out in your announcements and then if we have to reschedule to get more another day we can.  I am SO SO SO glad that we went out.  It snowed the whole time, but it was perfect.  It was one of those odd magical snowfalls where the clouds are super close to the ground and big puffy flakes are falling with no wind.  Because the clouds were so thin and close to the ground there was actually a ton of light coming through.  Have I said yet that I loved this session?  ‘Cause I did!  Ed came totally prepared with several outfits.  we went through them at the beginning of the session and figured out which outfits would go with which locations and then set out to create the vintage vision that Ed had for his pictures.  He was a joy to work with .
