I grew up with a camera in my hands and even as a kid I wanted more than just a photograph, I wanted to design something that told a story. It took going to an engineering college to get me even more fascinated by photography. While working in camera shops and studios, I found out not just why techniques make photos look better, but how it's done.
Honestly? They're just more fun. They have a ton of personality and dive headlong into most of their interests. Senior photos tell a story of their life up to that point, and give you a glimpse at the person that they are becoming.
We would meet and get coffee and we can hash out the details of the session. My memory is fueled on caffeine, whereas most other forms of information recall are slightly more reliable. I love taking notes and having things in writing.
During your session we will go through posed and candid shots. Props are huge. I often get more natural looking photos when seniors are with one of their interests.
Then I get to work preparing photos from the session for us to go through over coffee. That's when I get to work putting the final touches on your photos and products.
This is a big time in everyone's life and it deserves more than just digitals. Having something that you can hold in your hands, or hang on your wall is important for commemorating this milestone. Printed products last a lifetime and are much easier to find hanging on your wall than being buried in a hard drive.
