Senior photography. (that would be seniors in high school, not senior citizens- but I’m up for photographing them too!) The funny thing is that senior photography is HUGE all around the country, but for reasons I can’t seem to figure out it’s just not catching on here in NY. I’m really trying to change that as it would be a fantastic market to work in. For those of you who don’t know what senior sessions are all about, I’d be photographing your high school senior- but not those boring yearbook type photos. Your senior would be photographed in clothes that they love, in a fitting setting (be it a park, or a beach, or a sports arena, or NYC, or wherever they’d like!). They can choose a few outfits to bring (everything from semi-formal, to prom/formal wear, to cap & gown, to favorite casual clothing). But to me, the best part about senior photography is the photographs of them doing what they love most. Be it dancing, a sport, reading, playing an instrument, computer geniuses, traveling, whatever. I want to capture that for them- at the time in their lives where all kinds of exciting adventures await and life changes so much, so quickly. And as parents, wouldn’t you much rather have pictures like that then the typical yearbook photo with the canned smiles? Seeing your child (no matter what age) captured doing what they love at a special time in their life is the best.
A few weeks ago I put a call out for a few high school seniors to be my guinea pigs for some bsquared senior sessions. And I got 4 of the most amazing seniors volunteer to help me out with my project. Dani is the first of the 4 I photographed and was so lovely and sweet, not to mention gorgeous and talented. She will be attending Muhlenberg College in the Fall (for dance!). Wishing you nothing but luck and school, Dani! Keep dancing and I can’t wait to say I knew you when.
So if you haven’t guessed yet, Dani is an accomplished dancer (of all types, but I asked her to bring her toe shoes.)I can only think of the little ballerina in the jewelry box I had as a little girl when looking at this photo. Please contact me (using the contact link above) if you are interested in your own senior session. We still have plenty of time before everyone leaves for college!
