Meet Emily! She is a senior in the Class of 2017 at Salisbury Christian School. She is a sweet soul that loves Jesus, horses, and her boyfriend too….sounds like a Tom Petty song. I’m dating myself with that reference, still a good song, just not known by this generation. Anyway, we got to spend some time together the other day for her senior portrait session.
One thing I love to do is spend time with my senior clients. This is a once in a lifetime experience that shouldn’t be skimped on in regards to time. I take pride in crafting an experience for my clients that includes things that are important to them and tell a story about who they are. Emily is one amazing young lady. She rides, plays soccer, is involved in Young Life and her church and is a great student from what I hear.
We spend some time photographing at some spots that hold special meaning for her. The railroad station is in their hometown, the barn where she rides, and Assateague(where she spends every spare moment). It was a great session and we were treated to one of the most amazing sunsets I have seen at Assateague to wrap up her session. This is another reason I don’t do mini sessions with my seniors, again it’s too important and you miss out on beautiful settings like this. Sorry for the novel, but I loved this session and I hope that you love the sneak peeks! Enjoy!
Meet Shelby! She is a senior in the Class of 2016 at Bennett High School. She is involved in marching band in school and horseback riding when she is not sitting in class. We met up the other day out at the farm where she rides, Pemberton Farms. Todd was there(her horse) and we did some portraits focused on one of the loves of her life, horseback riding. From there we stopped by her high school for portraits with her color guard items then finished up at a local park as the sun was setting on a beautiful fall day. These are just a few of the portrait that we captured during her session. Enjoy the sneak peeks!
Ah….the earthy smell of the stables, open fields filled with clover, a cool later summer breeze blowing in through the trees. This was our session the other night for Colleen’s senior portraits out at Kindred Spirits Farm. I have been out to the farm several times to photograph seniors with their horses. The first was Ellie a few years ago who now is giving my 6 year old son horse riding lessons…which he loves. It was such fun to get out there again to photograph Colleen. I stopped by the animal pen to say hi to Hannah Montana(the goat), Wilbur(the pig), and the peacocks(un-named) which are new this summer. Then we set up a few shots around the barn, near the hay bales, and with Suzy the beautiful horse in these photos with Colleen. What a fun session and such a beautiful young lady. Enjoy the sneak peeks.
Colleen-Enjoy your senior year. I wish you the best. Thanks for having me capture these images of this important time in your life.
