I do have some senior guys coming, but for now it’s another Charles Wright beauty! Really, where do these girls come from? I had a friend tell me that I was running a modeling agency, not a photography business!
Mekenzie, or Meka as her family and friends so fondly call her, is a sweetheart (so is her mom by the way)!!! It was such a pleasure to spend this time with them both.
And like so many seniors, she was very excited to get her senior pictures taken. She had studied my blog and talked to her friends and knew what to expect. I love that!
Since it was a rainy day (go figure), we decided to hit some indoor locations. First stop, the Rotunda (the Old Union Station). I love glass and marble and the light was just beautiful.
This is one of my FAVORITES, but I have so many this time I will spare you the constant “this is one of my favorites” comment for every one! You’re welcome.
Simple and elegant. The depths of the one on the left got me right away and the classic beauty of the one of the right jumped out at me.
We shot a lot in the building, but when the rain finally stopped we made sure to make good use of the outdoor light as well.
It was a bit windy, but that added some interest and fun!
There is just something about this that I love.
Meka doesn’t take a bad picture! I love the image on the left for it’s overall visual appeal, but the reflection in the one on the right is pretty cool too!
Few people are natural blondes these days (your’s truly included), but this is all her!
Another quick trip outside.
And again the wind was just enough.
I challenge myself to always look for unique ways to capture an image, just something different.
The Rotunda has so many wonderful features inside, I could do many shoots here and never run out of ideas or locations.
I asked Meka to look at her mom and this is the smile I got… priceless.
My sweetie, Joe thinks she looks high up, like on a scaffolding in this one, but she’s sitting on the ground. I love that illusion.
Just hangin’ out, lookin’ stunning.
The classic shot.
The basic shot.
The wind shot.
And just a couple more versions of the classic shot.
After the Rotunda, we headed to Charles Wright to get a few shots at her school. Pierogi, her dog was so patient with us, but she was excited to finally have her turn in front of the camera. Mekenzie tells me she sleeps 23 hours out of the day, so this was her hour of excitement for sure!
Doesn’t this remind you of the Gorton’s Fisherman? She told me that it’s her dad’s hat and that she wears it at games if it’s raining. So cute!
Pierogi doing the ear shake… funny!
Meka especially wanted pictures in her letterman’s jacket at school. She has played basketball since she was little, but with repeated injuries she had to give it up. A very hard decision I am sure.
Did you notice she incorporated pink into the jacket?
The weather was beautiful towards the end of the session, so we got a few in the grass/woods behind the school too.
Hanging out in the hallways of school. Meka loved Charles Wright and has lots of great memories in these hallways. She is still thinking about the future, but thinks she wants to eventually be a Chiropractor.
Meka’s dad’s company built the benches inside the arts building. You can see the curve of some of them behind her. I absolutely LOVE this image, LOVE!
She trades in her heels for a pink pair of Vans and does a final walk through the hallways… a soon to be “goodbye” to high school. What a milestone!
Thank you Liz for being so wonderful to hang out with and trusting me with your beautiful daughter, Meka. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute from taking the pictures to processing them!
