Yep, you guessed it… senior twins… from Bellarmine.Anyone who knows me, knows I am really bad at remembering names… and even worse at telling twins apart and which one I was just shooting… but what a fun challenge to have! I wrote down every outfit, so when home I would know who was who. As I processed more and more of their images it became easier to see their differences. Backlit hair is one of my favorite things to capture. I love playing with sunlight, but I am careful to not lose detail in people’s faces. What good is it to have a picture if it is completely washed out from the sun’s glow… we want the best of both worlds!I pondered whether I should post each twin separately or maybe spread them over 3 days, but I decided to do one post and separate them within that post.They are 17, as are most of the seniors I have photographed. I made them lie under a car for this one, but they didn’t mind and gladly got on the ground. Anything for a cool picture I say, well almost anything.JENNIFER hopes to go to Santa Clara University in CA next year and major in pre-pharmacy.I love the soft colors and lighting of this image. It feels peaceful to me.Interesting enough, the twins would rather not attend the same college, even though Santa Clara is on both of their lists.Jennifer plays varsity tennis for Bellarmine, but we didn’t do a tennis pic. She just wanted the Urban setting all the way for her session.With the addition of parking meters in downtown Tacoma, it has made it more difficult to drive from location to location quickly. So, I have changed my strategy a bit. I now pick a street and use it for all it’s worth. Can you tell that most of this session was in the same location as Andrew and Lane’s? Amazing how many different looks you can get in just a few city blocks.A FAVORITE of mine, even though it seemed a bit scary to close the gate on her. She was very willing though. No senior was hurt in the making of this image!This cement wall seemed mysterious to me… especially in the ones coming up of Lindsey’s. I tried hard to give each of them a different look and not use the same background, but for this wall, I loved it too much and had to use it with both of them.Can you tell which one is Jennifer? You are cheating if you have to match the clothes to her other pictures. I guess that is a little unfair, since you haven’t seen Lindsey’s pictures yet. So, come back after you look at Lindsey’s and then answer the question.I love this one too. The contrast of the walls is what makes it so interesting to me. It helps that she is adorable too.SInce I do so many of my shoots downtown, I have to remember that seniors want pictures in the fall for a reason and it’s not always to meet the yearbook deadline. It’s for the beautiful colors, so I made sure we included shots that captured those from a nearby park.I love using textures on an image, but I haven’t done it for a while. I use them sparingly, so not to overdo. It’s great on occasion, but too much of a good thing can get old real quick.Last one of Jenniferand again with the fall colors.LINDSEY plans to attend either Santa Clara University or Loyola Marymount University, both in CA. She plans to study business.The twins have beautiful blue eyes! I usually like my images to be on the warm side, but for this one… I like the coolness.My classic pose, I love it on EVERY senior.It’s always fun to watch sisters interact with each other. They can easily bring each other to laughter. Again with a little texture to enhance the image a bit.This one feels mysterious to me. Say it, I know you are thinking it, I know… I’m a little weird, but I’m ok with that.Messy hair… I love messy hair… well at least in photos… again strange, I know.Relaxing in the sun… before it rains and it will… very soon.I love all the interest in this image. Who knew a broken drain pipe, old cement and moss could look so good. My FAVORITE of the session. It’s a very powerful image to me. It’s one of those images you just have to stare at for a while to take it all in. TWINSThanks for stopping by and remember to leave some comment love. You can always send me a personal note if you would rather. I look forward to capturing YOU next!
