Zoey is a senior from Rainier High School. We had a great time driving around town looking for just the right spots for her!
When I decided to do senior photography I really thought about what I would want if I were a senior (vs our choices back in the 80′s) or what I would want for my graduate (only 2 years away from having one! Yikes!).
I decided I wanted an “experience.” I am still developing what that looks like, but I like what I have so far and I LOVE these images!
We have a lot of fun finding different locations, going through all the possible outfits, deciding on the look we are after, talking about the future, about boyfriends, girlfriends, animals, favorite things, etc.
I am always excited to see what we’ve captured and can’t wait to do the blog post for them. The responses that follow the posts are just the best.
I think my favorite part is not only capturing a special image, but learning about my senior and watching their personalities shine through my camera.
Can you see the little feather peaking through her hair on the right? Love it!
Zoey loves to dance and sing, she loves to hang out with friends, go to movies and travel with her family.
And she loves being in front of the camera!
She wants to study psychology at either WWU or UWT.
Zoey wore this very special necklace of a D, for Dominick, her little brother. It was actually created from his own handwriting. Dominick passed when he was only 5 and this necklace is a special remembrance of him. <3
You are so gorgeous Zoey!
We had a little wind this day, which is always welcome.
The Spanish staircase is a great location choice. I’m so glad a little color is coming back to the stairs now. They were so clean for a while and I prefer the green that is now starting to cover them again.
I love when pets join us! Sometimes it takes laying on them to get them to stay still. We have to be quick!
OOOH, good feather shot.
Love the Toms wedges seen on the right. I didn’t know they had wedges.
Zoey, you were a pleasure to capture. Thanks for letting me be your senior photographer.
I just want to say, it’s not just the seniors I have enjoyed this school year, it’s their parents as well! I adore them, really. They are so good to me and treat me like I am precious to be taking their child’s senior portraits. It’s a good feeling and one that I treasure and consider it a privilege to be part of their lives, even just for a moment in time.
