My name is Brooke and I’m a bit of a room stalker…there I said it I’ve literally been looking at this gorgeous formal dining room and formulating when I was going to get to feature portraits here since the Vizquel Family moved in! I don’t even have to say anything more as to why…I mean just look…so pretty and silver and perfect! Each of these Giclee Canvas Wraps are custom 17 inch squares highlighting each of the kids and then an additional group portrait of them together with one of their cutey pups. (If I was going to get off topic right now…this might be the time that I would mention that the family has a zoo on their property…not the exaggerated “it’s a zoo” at our house kind of phrase..NO, I’m talking a literal “Zoo” with monkey’s and kangaroos. BUT I’m not going to get off topic, so this is me, NOT mentioning that at all)
Which way to the beach? That was the first question that popped to my mind when I saw pretty Issaquah High School Senior Alicia in her sweet blue and white stripe dress. It was super cute just as it was but then she paired the vintage red snakeskin belt and we had a real nautical partyI had to laugh when I looked at her images here because she looks so relaxed and gorgeous…you would never in a million years guess that literally within a minute of snapping these senior portraits — the skies opened up and it began to pour buckets!!! Welcome to Seattle.
It was a complete no brainer that Mercer Island Senior and Baseball All-Star Max would choose to include his sport in one of his senior pictures looks but it was how much fun I had with him that was most surprising. What a cool kid! He was my first shoot of the day and honestly I wish I could kick off every morning with senior sessions like him. I loved this shot of him holding the pegs to the right here but it was his silly side that had me cracking up…posted that Kodak moment on our Facebook page here.
Senior pictures are the best when you can let your personality really shine through and there is no better example than Miss Keelin here! The Skyline High School senior ditched her soccer ball and got all dolled-up in this super cute cranberry dress and chocolate military inspired-boot. I am such a sucker for a great scarf so of course I was hoping that she would accidentally leave it in her dressing room when the photo shoot was over (sadly…no) For this studio look, we had the music bumping and while I was setting the lights and tweaking the set, Keelin was getting her groove on — adorable! Big thanks to Sorella Salon for her pretty camera-ready hair & make-up.
Chelsea has that Old-Hollywood beauty that is just so glamorous so I wasn’t surprised to learn that the Mount Si High School Senior is actually a budding actress. I loved this outdoor look in her animal print dress that she so cleverly accessorized with a studded belt and rope chain necklace. We also headed indoors to beat the heat and captured another one of my favorites from her session that I posted on our Facebook page…looks like a movie poster huh?
