jamie {senior portrait: central new york}

Even though it is a holiday, I can’t wait another day to get this next group of photographs up.  I met Jamie earlier in the summer, when I photographed portraits of her and sister Maggie.  Thus, I had no worries going into her senior portrait session, because I already knew that Jamie was a wonderful person to work with.  She is so kind; and of course beautiful.

If you’ve been following along this summer, you already know that I understand the importance of the yearbook image…


My philosophy, however, is that everyone deserves more than just that studio photograph to mark this special age in life.   So I’ll take this opportunity to shamelessly plug my passion (and hopefully talent) in creating these lifestyle portraits!

Love the casual elegance in this next shot.  The combination of Jamie’s classic red, white, and blue clothing with the leather chair reminds me of a Ralph Lauren ad…


These next two shots have such gorgeous colors going on…

Senior_Portrait_0060Jamie was a real sport.  I wanted to get this shot of her looking over the back of the porch swing.  In order to get this pretty background, however, we had to take the  swing off and hang it in reverse.  Not only was Jamie sweet enough to help me lug the porch swing around, she helped me put it back in place when we were done.   Personally, I think our hard labor paid off…

Senior_Portrait_0065When I am working, there is a lot to pay attention to!  I’ve got to make sure the background looks nice, the lighting is correct, the hair and makeup are doing good, not to mention all of the technical settings on my camera.  So every once in a while, I find a surprise in an image that I didn’t notice when I was taking the photographs.  While I was editing these photographs, I was blown away by Jamie’s gorgeous eyelashes!  I couldn’t believe I didn’t notice them during our session.  Next time I photograph Jamie, I’m going to have to use my macro lens on those butterflies!  Just take a look at this next shot, you’ll see what I mean…

Senior_Portrait_0061Jamie loves to play soccer.  I love her hand written name combined with the classic Nike logo on her soccer ball… just do it!

Senior_Portrait_0063Guess what my new favorite prop for soccer portraits is?

Senior_Portrait_0066More beautiful color, texture, and oh yes fabulous eyelashes!


Thank you Jamie!
