Looking for great senior pictures for your Class of 2015 boy? Let’s go ahead and let this Taylor Lautner look-a-like be your inspiration shall we? Honestly Griffen walked in and I just had to ask…”Um has anyone ever told you that you look like Jacob from Twilight?” — Spoiler alert…he’s heard it a time or two Like a lot of our fellas…senior pictures and mugging for my camera were not at the top of his “so excited” list – but I think even he was surprised by how much it “didn’t suck” (that’s my quote…not his…many of our boys are shocked that playing Super Model for an afternoon is actually pretty cool) I loved this casual outdoor look in his dress short and navy polo but I was DYING for his dapper suit & tie that we posted to our Facebook. For more guy senior pictures…be sure to check out our GQ Portfolio on our Senior Website.
I love that many of our high school seniors come back with their families for family pictures before they head off to college and there are always a few common questions that come up. Whenever we’re planning family portraits. number one is “what to wear” but a close second if we are photographing outdoors is — What is the best time of day to make great images? In the case of the Arciniega Family…it’s whatever time they chooses to get in front of the camera. I mean…holy smokes…thanks for kicking off my morning so beautifully
“12 More Just Like Her, Please!” — I literally shouted that right after Bellevue High School Senior Madison walked out the door following her senior pictures shoot. I know what you are thinking — it’s her super crazy cute polka dot dress, right? (admittedly…that did contribute to our fun) But NO — it was her radiating glow and sunshine-y personality that just made her so over-the-top lovely to photograph. Right in the middle of her session she looks at me and she said “I don’t know why…but I just feel really good!” — I know why — beautiful inside makes for beautiful outside. Thanks for a fab shoot Madison…you were a joy! Big thank you to my girl Wesley at Sorella Salon for her always-on-point camera ready hair & make-up.
So it hits me just as I’m beginning to photograph Interlake High School Senior Lucas… this guy reminds me of Super Man’s alter ego…Clark Kent! Apparently I was slow to the party…he’s heard it before With his striking good looks, tall frame and easy laugh…guess the secret got out before he met me for his photo shoot. (heehee) The genetic gifts run in the family — I photographed his gorgeous sister Margo a couple of years ago. Still one of my favorites.
So I am absolutely LOVING the new behind the scenes + senior pictures videos that we’ve launched for the Class of 2015 Grads. This one is SO fun and features one of my very favorite Issaquah High School shining stars — ELLIE. (You can see in the video, we were practicing our posing …of course she nailed it every time!
