JMB Prom 2015 – Senior Portrait Photographer

I had the privilege of joining a few couples before Bennett’s prom for some portraits at a waterfront property in Salisbury, before they headed off to dinner.  Sadie’s mom arranged for me to come and take some portraits of her daughter, who has been a senior model rep for my studio this past year.  While I was there I had the opportunity to capture the portraits of many other students that I know.  Such fun doing this and what a beautiful house to use as a backdrop for these images.  Here are a few sneak peeks, these and the rest of the images will be online this week on our custom mobile app.  Enjoy!!  I hope everyone had a fantastic night at prom.

Every year I get to work with some AMAZING high school juniors as they take part in my model program for the year.  This group of girls is our biggest group yet and they have been wonderful to photograph and work with this year.  From our first outing in the snow back in February to their model sessions in the studio last month, it is shaping up to be a fabulous start to the year.

I have been introducing them to you on Istagram and now it’s their official introduction on the Blog and on FB.  These portraits were taken in the studio and are just the beginning of a great year and of many exciting sessions to come for these girls and for our studio.  Enjoy meeting the Class of 2016 Senior Model’s for James Seip Seniors.  We are now booking senior portrait sessions and have a limited number of dates available and we only photograph one senior client a day.  Speak to one our model reps and ask them about their experience with our studio.  It is Amazing just like them.

Senior Books – senior portrait photographer, Salisbury MD

We live in a digital age and most high school seniors have tons of photos on their phones and handheld devices.  Unfortunately, many of those photos don’t make it past the digital realm into something tangible that can be held and appreciated, they often stay on tiny screens.  We believe that photographs and especially senior portraits carry enormous weight and can remind us of a unique and special time in our lives.  When you hold a professional portrait in your hands or hang one on your wall you are freezing a moment in time and reliving that moment every time you enjoy that tangible portrait.

Our senior books are one such item that we carry in our studio for our portrait clients.  The books are a great place to show about 40 images from their senior portrait session in a format that they can enjoy for years to come.  Each of our books is custom designed by our studio and then printed by one of the best labs in the photography industry, WHCC.  The books come in two sizes 5X7 and 8X12.  They have customized photo hard covers.  The pages inside lay flat when opened, so that the page is one continuous image with a small gap in the middle.  With our 8X12 books the impact of seeing a beautiful image that large is often breathtaking.  Most of our seniors order a book as part of their senior order and we take great pride in creating these one of a kind works of art.  We recently finished laying out and printing Teagan’s book from her portrait session this past summer and I must say this book is killer.  She is a true beauty and the book shows that, but it will remain a keepsake for her and her family to cherish for years to come.

Kathryn – studio portraits

 

 

I got to spend a few minutes with one of my senior models in the studio the other day.  She needed a portrait to use for an upcoming dance competition and class.  We kept things simple and created these images for her during her session.  I am so excited to work with this senior this year.  Thanks Kathryn for coming by the studio to capture these.Collage 1

Class of 2016 Senior Models – Portraits in the Snow -Salisbury Senior Portraits

We got dumped on by the snow recently, which means SEVERAL days off of school! So I gathered up a few of my Senior Models for the Class of 2016 and headed out to Pemberton Park for a session in the snow. It was the first time photographing these girls and after this session I am so excited about working with them this year! Each and everyone of one these girls is beautiful inside and out and I hope you get a glimpse of that in these images.  My partner Amanda helped a ton with this shoot and together we captured some lovely images of these girls.  We had so much fun and I look forward to the year ahead!  Take a look at a few of our favorite images from this session and leave a comment for our senior models.

 I am now booking senior sessions for the Class of 2016; don’t wait, as my schedule fills up quickly and I only shoot a limited number of sessions during the year.  Enjoy the favorites from our session in the snow! Thanks, ladies for braving the cold!

Nick’s Senior Portraits – sneak peeks – Salisbury, MD senior portrait photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting Nick on a much warmer day this fall and got to capture his senior portraits.  Baseball is one of Nick’s passions so we made a stop at the PHS baseball field to capture a few before heading to a local park for some other casual pics.  We had a blast hanging out and getting to know each other.  There happens to be less than 50 days until baseball season kicks off and I am sure that Nick and the entire PHS team is excited to dominate on the field this year.  They have an amazing team for 2015 that Nick is a part of.  Thanks for having me capture your portraits Nick.  Enjoy the rest of your senior year and best wishes for your spring season and as you go off to college in the fall.  Enjoy the sneak peeks.

Jakob and Megan – Winter Engagement

 

 

The first day of winter was extremely cold, but we still had fun heading out to Tyaskin to squeeze in some engagement portraits just before the holidays. Spending time with a fantastic couple like Jake and Megan is our favorite way to close out 2014! Enjoy this peek into the fun we had, and we look forward to capturing their big day in June of this year!

Kyleigh’s Sneak Peeks – Salisbury, MD senior portrait photographer

Meet Kyleigh…she is a senior in the Class of 2015 from Parkside High School….go Rams!  She was also the goalie for the field hockey team and if you scored on her this year, then you are one of the lucky few to have done so.  A few years back I was able to capture her brothers senior portraits and now it was Kyleigh’s turn.  We headed out to Pemberton Park for a few fall portraits, then ended the evening at the hockey field.  She was such a joy to photograph and Dad was awesome at holding reflectors and helping me create some beautiful portraits of his lovely daughter.  Thanks Beaver family for having me capture your important moments again.  I wish Kyleigh the best as she finishes her senior year and goes off to college in the fall.  Enjoy the sneak peeks!

Dani’s sneak peeks – Salisbury, MD senior portrait photographer

I got to meet this lovely young lady the other week when we did her senior portraits.  She is a senior in the Class of 2015 at WiHi.  We had a beautiful fall day at Pemberton Park to capture these.  I love the colors this time of year and the park didn’t disappoint with the changing of the leaves.  Such a fun day!  Enjoy the sneak peeks.
