Senior portraits. They are something I do for the senior/family that want to capture what ought to be the most exciting year of a child’s high school career. I offer single sessions of course but I thrive on the sessions that are what I call a “Full year study”. 4 to 5 sessions throughout the year that capture the changes that happen in that final year of high school. I toss in a few other special special sessions if sports or the arts are concerned. Lexie was one of my first long term studies. (We may have gone a little more than a year.) The cool thing is to see the changes in personality from time to time which makes you see your child’s entire span of emotions and coolness!
Fame is fleeting. Mine happened to be 92 seconds worth.
Backstory… About 14 months ago I tweeted how much I enjoyed interacting with Insureon when looking for business insurance. I also used FaceBook as an avenue of showing my thanks. It was not a month later that I was contacted from the the offices of Insureon and asked if I would be willing to do a little video spot with them and talk about my experience with them.
Fast forward 4-6 weeks later after the first phone call.
It turned out this was not just a “short video spot”. It turned into a full day of work, sweat and laughter… (mainly because I could not just have the video production film a normal portrait session…..)
Hair/make-up at 4:00AM
Video arrived at 5:45AM
Slow drive (not to mention possibly illegal with all the stuff and people in the back up a pick-up) to the location
and an 90 minutes or so of shooting. My friend allowed us access to his property.
Then about two hours of interviewing me. (poor guy…he had his work cut out for him)
A quick group photo and it was a wrap!
And the final image.
I have been photographing dance and dancers for the past few years and I have come to really enjoy the movements and grace of dance. Here are a few of the newest images I have been working on and hope to release for sale later this year.
