Issaquah High School Senior Alexis is a total original — her energy is feather light and her conversation topics jump around like the most interesting ping pong game you’ve ever encountered. All of that quirky goodness + her amazing sense of personal style make her one of my favorite people to photograph. For her senior pictures photo shoot Alexis really wanted to channel her love of boho chic so she paired this black flowy black skirt with a blush floral peasant shirt. I loved the gold cuff that she paired but the final and most awesome element was her hair styling. Big thank you to Sorella Salon for really taking it to the next level with Alexis’s editorial make-up and hair. Alexis specifically wanted an “un-done” look with small braids and layering details — she looks like she’s right out of a magazine. We added another favorite on our Facebook page here.
We’ve all heard the term “it” …as they have “it” or X-factor. Whatever you title the term… Issaquah High School Senior Jasmine has that thing. She is just magic in front of the camera. Clearly these fashion model inspired senior pictures are not likely going to be her “yearbook” selection but I just had to share them with you all
Issaquah High School 2014 Senior Elise walks in and the girl is just all eyes and lashes — oh…and super cute outfits! For each of you fashionistas looking for awesome style inspiration, I’m sure you can totally appreciate this sweet high-low ombre skirt and blue denim vest combination that she rocked for this studio look.
Family portraits with the Kemmerer Family Part II was a sequel that was…in my opinion LONG overdue! (and not just because Dad Jim fed me homemade cupcakes after their photo shoot…of course that was a HUGE bonus) I absolutely adore this family and the last time I was fortunate enough to have the whole party of five in front of my camera….their youngest Andrew (far right directly above) was in middle school & braces. I spent the first 20 minutes that we arrived at their beautiful home just trying to wrap my brain around the fact that he was now a grown man. This lush park-like setting on the river where we photographed is actually their gorgeous back yard — perfect for outdoor family pictures–right up until Seattle got very cliche and began to Dump “captial D” rain on our heads — That’s a Wrap! (Bring on the cupcakes)
Eastside Catholic High School Senior Nico is one of those guys with confidence that just radiates…and that was before he slipped on the sleek suit and tie for his senior pictures :-) I’ve been photographing this fella since he was a little boy so of course it blows my mind to see him so grown and heading toward a 2014 Graduation. (Here’s a link to the very first photo shoot I ever did with him and his family seven years ago)
