Happy Summertime! I, for one, am loving it – wearing my favorite silver sandals almost daily, rediscovering pedicures and swimming with my girls.
Spring was super busy around the studio, between family sessions, two rounds of MiniSessions at Dawn Price Baby and photographing a number of high school seniors it was an action packed season. Luckily, I also had a wonderful new assistant join PHOTOPIA!
Susanne has an art and photography background and is also a talented graphic designer. In a couple of short months she has brought us to a whole new level with album design – so exciting! I thought I’d share some favorite images from a senior portrait session by posting spreads from a gorgeous 8×8 Memory Album that Susanne and I worked on together. Just imagine that the album is on your lap, open to a full 16 inches across, with photographs printed on matte finish 100% recycled paper pages.
And this beauty……guess what her name is.
Here in DC we have a gray, cool start to spring…but we all eagerly await the explosion of color that is to come. This morning my girls and I were excited by the mini daffodils in neighbors’ yards [note, other people's yards....I dream of gardening but so rarely find the time]. Soon it will be ideal weather and landscape for spring portraits – I am so ready after all the dark, chilly days of winter.
I’ve been getting more and more requests for senior portraits which I love doing. The inquiries reminded me that I hadn’t shared some faves from last fall and will do so below. What a joy to capture this amazing age and such a confident, elegant young woman too!
Stay tuned for info on spring MiniSessions for Babies at Dawn Price Baby in Georgetown and tips for getting your portraits up on the wall and artfully arranged at home.
Happy Spring to all!
This weekend I was lucky enough to photograph another young lady who had been before my camera at a much younger age. Somehow the nine year old who I’d photographed holding her favorite stuffed fox is now a senior in high school and quite grown up. I think her many years of theater gave her a confidence and serenity in front of the camera which made for a more relaxed mood.
C. was really the focus of the session for her senior portraits though I also spent time photographing her younger sister who is very much the poised ninth grader now. E. was heading off to her riding lesson right after the session so we did some portraits in her gear.
This was so fun for me to plan with C. and her mom and to spend time together capturing these amazing ages! Thanks to you all for accommodating me by carrying the harp outside and sitting in tall grass despite the nipping mosquitoes…..
