    So this post is going to be WAY more fun if you say it out loud using an “announcer’s radio-style voice” — okay GO!  Each season we see a new set of fun fashion trends and this Class of 2015 has some timeless favorites that will look great today and 20 years from now (unlike the feather earrings of 4 years ago that might leave a few folks wondering “what was I thinking?):-)Kristen’s senior pictures showcase the “new neutral” – a green Military jacket that is just so hot this year.  We’re seeing it paired with dresses, denim and everything in between.  For Summer we’re also loving the lace trim finish on hemlines, cami straps and even leggings.  Finally — beachy waves for hair…a hit last year is holding stronger than ever as the choice of many gals who are embracing their natural textures and saying bye bye to the flat-iron.

    Meet Madison from STEM High School.  I loved that she chose a contemporary little black dress and paired it with a classic pearl and sleek blow-out…SO chic.  (I do SO enjoy when the girls bring in their formal prom dress and dance frocks for senior pictures…it really gives variety to the finished looks) If I’m being honest though…we could have put her in a potato sack  and she would have looked phenomenal…she’s just that gorgeous.  Big thank you to our styling team Wesley from Sorella Salon and our in house make-up artist Tiffany for her camera-ready hair & face.  It’s me so of course I have to show you more… we posted another favorite from her outdoor look on our Facebook page here.

    Honestly I just don’t understand where the myth about senior boys came from — trust me — they absolutely want a fabulous senior pictures experience every bit as much as the gals! Admittedly…they may not be earmarking the pages of Vogue and practicing poses in the mirror…but they do want to look natural, relaxed and amazing for this huge milestone.  Mission accomplished for Skyline High School’s Nathaniel, Class of 2015 :-)  He also had a fantastic studio portrait with his football that I just have to share with you…be ready — you are going to be smiling at the screen when you see this one!

    So oh my gosh…where to begin?  How about with the behind the scenes details for how this senior pictures photo shoot with Kayleigh finally came to be?  It’s me…so there is ALWAYS a story right?…And usually it involves some sort of comedy of errors — yep, this one too:-)I got it in my brain that a rope swing would be a fabulous concept for a senior photo shoot…who knew it was going to be brain surgery to not only find the perfect wood plank and rope…and secure it to a properly sized branch.  I know I know…you are thinking “HOME DEPOT, Brooke”…but NO.  I am the farthest thing from a “do it yourself” girl that you will meet…so of course I was stalking the internet for someone who would give me the “instant gratification, microwave version” of the perfect set.  FYI…doesn’t exist…trust me…I really tried.  So cut to me — pitching our team on my creative concept and getting shot down like 12 times….blah blah blah “safety”…blah blah blah “crashing to the ground” they said.  Ohhhhhh…”I see, fine…let’s try it your way…with some planning and thought”  So while it was neither FAST or INSTANT…by the time Kayleigh from Eastlake High School arrived for her senior pictures photo shoot this day….we were totally ready (sort of).  Intern Robert was in the finishing touches of doing his very best version of a rope configuration…securing the swing to the tree that involved 8 knots — I’m telling you both a troop of boy scouts and Master Magician Houdini would have been impressed.  The last test of readiness before we would begin shooting involved all 6 foot 6 inches of Robert and well over 200 pounds of him bouncing on the swing with copious amounts of tissue paper and flowers… for that single bit of confidence that we would need before letting Kayleigh take a ride :-)  And you just thought it was a picture of a beautiful senior girl on a swing right? (heehee)  Our senior photo shoots at Studio B are meant to celebrate this tremendous milestone with the kids and honestly…it takes a village of talent to make them happen so BIG thank you to Wesley at Sorella Salon for once again creating the most gorgeous hair and our in-house make-up artist Tiffany for her natural “You on Your Best Day” face and finally to Trisha from Stella & Dot for lending us her beautiful jewelry.

    Meet Class of 2015 Senior Amanda!  This Lake Washington High School stunner is today’s Head to Toe “DO!”…As in we DO love her on trend black and white maxi dress, we DO covet her fitted white “ballet inspired” crop top and we DO adore her care-free auburn waves and camera-ready face (thank you Sorella Salon and our lovely in house Make-up artist Tiffany :-)  Amanda is a dancer and her natural ease really comes across when we’re shooting…we had a video crew filming on the day we were photographing her senior pictures so I’m on pins and needles to show you the moving imagery from her session. We also added another favorite from shoot our Facebook page here.
