We have a good time over here…we really do, but some times it’s the things that sneak up on you that are THE most hysterical. Please note above the film that I found on my camera just a few minutes ago featuring our Intern Robert. Honestly, I don’t know how I missed that he was doing this all through my lighting checks and set-ups….here I was focusing on light meters and histograms and never once did I really see that he was fully vamping with every click. Tonight as I began to download film….I see frame after frame of this soon-to-be college senior clearly entertaining himself…and I missed it entirely until right now! Robert…you absolutely crack me up!…It has been SO great having you back for another Summer
Cue the collective groan when we look up in the sky and see it’s a cloudy day? Nope…not for this Seattle Senior photographer. The lighting on an overcast day is absolute perfection for creating sparkly eyes and flawless skin. No…of course I don’t want sideways rain for Mount Si High School Mikaelyn’s senior pictures but I love that we had the most perfect filtered light for her photo shoot (the fluffy clouds are natures version of my really expensive studio equipment) Doesn’t heard that this girl is also an absolute dream to have in front of the camera…her smile is just amazing! (Shout our to her orthodontist Dr. Egger at Egger Orthodontics)
Senior pictures + fashion is supposed to be fun and nobody understands that more than Roni from Issaquah High School. Exhibit one…just pause for a moment and take in her clever spin on chandelier earrings. I loved how she paired her denim shorts jumper with an “on trend” black crop top and combat boot – so cute!…But it is her half up/half down hairstyling that really deserves a shout out…soft, pretty and a total original.

Redmond High School Senior Meghan has “that hair”…oh you know what I’m talking about ladies….the kind of hair that just makes you want to ask her what shampoo she’s using? (As if the styling product is really the key to my locks looking like thishaha) Luckily I’m fine…the reality is that while I personally am never going have 12 pounds of shiny, thick, beach waves….I can break out the fan and photograph her for a rock-star senior model moment that makes me equally joy-filled! We also posted this outdoor sneak peek from Meghan’s senior session…looks like she in some exotic European location right?
Chad is literally my very favorite type of guy to photograph! The Cedar Park Christian High School Senior arrived SO prepared…I love that! Varied clothing? – check. Props that represent his interests? – Got’em. Amazing Attitiude? – Oh Yeah. Lovely Mom to ride shot gun? Priceless :-) (On this last point…let me just say how much I appreciate when the fellas bring Mom, a friend, any cohort that allows for them to relax and let their personality really shine…this is a fun experience and it’s cool to share it with folks that care about you) One of my very favorite moments from Chad’s session is this one directly above where he started cracking up and covered his face…we’re not bringing world peace…but we are having a good time this senior season!
