Megan and Heather decided to do their senior portraits together, which was hopefully more fun for them than doing them separately! Going with a friend is a great idea if the idea of senior portraits doesn’t excite you.
Heather’s mom, Nicole, and I go way back, and Heather (blog post to come) is her third senior I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I met Megan last year for the first time when Nicole arranged for a surprise photo session of Megan and her siblings (which I don’t think this ever made it to the blog). The take home here is if you ever get a chance to be friends with Nicole, take it. She’s an awesome human being!
We started the session at Genesee Valley Park.
The stone bridge is a really nice background that you may see overused on this blog… I guess I’ll need to explore the park a little more for some new spots!
We headed over to the path which is also a favorite. When taking solo portraits changing the background and clothing are really important for adding variety. Megan brought along a few different shirts to mix things up a little.
As we were leaving, the sun was setting behind us and we took some images that were back lit with the sun. If you happen to have gorgeous red hair it has an even more stunning impact.
Then we headed over to the Sunken Garden in Highland Park just as we were losing sunlight. Nicole and I somehow managed to get lost and ran into a fence, but eventually made our way with just enough light to get by.
Congratulations Megan!!! Best of luck on your new adventures!
