Lydia and her cello were so beautiful I just felt tremendous pressure even before we started! I needed to channel my inner Annie Leibovitz and fast. Absolutely in love with these portraits of the Bellevue High School Senior…how she managed to pull off fresh, modern and timeless all in one image is just amazing.
Part way through our senior shoot with Kevin I really needed him to take a time-out! No — this was not the toddler “take a break and think about what you’ve done variety” the Redmond High School Senior Boy (and basketball player) is so much taller than me that I finally had to have him sit down so that I could get the angles that I wanted. (ha! slam dunk!)
“LOVE your hair!” I’m pretty sure I said that on repeat like 2 million times to Eastside Catholic beauty Michelina during her senior pictures photo shoot. I might have even exclaimed it with equal enthusiasm as if I was noticing it’s radiance for the first time — EVERY time. My guess is that she is so used to hearing it and wished I could have been far more original in my adoration but Michelina was beyond gracious.
I had a total WTF moment while photographing the Wallace Family Portraits — also known as… “Why The Fowl” Or if you have had enough of looking for Pokemon — a “What the Duck?” moment? No matter what you call it — here’s what I’m getting at — if you look closely in several of the Wallace Family Portraits you are going to see one very friendly female duck that aggressively kept photo bombing their portrait session (hint bottom left of the 1st family portrait and direct center of the parents directly above this text)
Mom Joyce had shared with me that it had been way too long since the group of four had family pictures so I’m hoping that she is happy with her newly adopted fowl that will make up the 5th member of her family. (ha!)
Pretty senior pictures of Bellevue High School 2017 Senior Mimi in her sweet lace blue dress just screamed — show me, show me! So we did. Also loved this Seventeen Magazine worthy sneak peek that we shared on our Instagram of Mimi in her white jumper with red and white stripe t-shirt — two words, “doll face”
