I recently started my senior portraits campaign, and Haley, who is my 2012 model and ambassador, had her senior portrait sessions recently. To showcase a range of what I’m doing this year, I shot three different locations. Above is a shot at Folly Beach, and directly below is a shot in downtown Charleston, SC. I also did a few studio shots as well.
On location shoots, I like to capture an edgier and dramatic look. In the studio though, I tend to favor a high-key look like this:
A new product that I’m going to start including in my senior portrait packages is a Facebook banner. I used one of Haley’s shots to demonstrate this on the JWNPhoto Facebook Page.
Part of the fun of these shoots is in the experience. One moment that I’m sure will stand out for Haley and her father during this shoot was when we hijacked a Porsche!
As we were walking down Chisolm Street, I was making small talk with Haley and I said “Wouldn’t it be awesome if that lady let us take a shot using her car as a prop?” and then I proceeded to do just that. I love this shot because the car’s owner is in the background trying to get out of the way, but she really adds to the whole thing 😉
We also did some more traditional portraits just to have a little diversity.
Here’s a slideshow of all of her photos:
You can also view them on Facebook here and here, or on Flickr.
Now is the time to get your senior portraits made, so let’s book a session now. Time is running out on my current promotion, so contact me here.
