The Senior Experience
Your senior year is finally here, and with it, your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for senior portraits that show your beauty, confidence and uniqueness. The portraits that create visual memories of your time in high school and college, the happiness of the new journey ahead, and tell the world who you are!
But how do you make sure that you don’t waste that opportunity and end up with ho-hum pictures, simply because you have not done it before and therefore are not sure what outfits work best, how to pose for compelling, professional looking images (after all, nobody is born a model), what locations make the best backdrop for the look you envision, or what makeup and light are the most flattering for photos?
I also have a ton of outfits ranging from tops, jeans, and dresses all varying sizes just in case.
Once you've decided you'd like to book a senior portrait session, the first step is to get your session on the schedule! I shoot senior sessions in the afternoons/evenings during 'golden hour', so keep those times in mind as we brainstorm dates for your session! If you're excited and want to book you'll receive a contract and an invoice for your retainer to make things official!
This is where things start getting really fun!! We meet up and discuss the details of your session and answer any questions you will have. We can meet wherever you like. This meeting will let me get to know you and will include your session and details, location choices, and outfit ideas. I give you all of my information so you can text, DM, or snapchat me anytime!
We start at MUA then head over to first location and start the photoshoot usually around 2 hours before sunset. Prepare yourself for lots of smiling and laughing! The session is all about capturing your uniquely beautiful personality! I, your friend and/or mom will assist you with posing and show you my favorite locations. If you had any ideas too we can work that in ahead of time. I also make sure to adjust your hair & outfits so nothing is out of place
Choosing the Location
For the beach babe. How lucky are we to live only a short drive from the beach! Sarasota beaches are renown and have been the #1 beach in US for years. The possibilities are endless since between the two of us, we know all the secret spots, away from tourists!
For the nature lover. If a natural, greenery-filled environment is more along your alley, there are numerous parks spread out in Sarasota, both rustic and well-manicured, parks. Meandering walking paths, boardwalks and cozy benches offer great settings for senior photos.
For the city chick. You are in luck! Sarasota is growing fast and we will not have trouble at all finding a great urban location in downtown Sarasota. Interesting backdrops and props include new skyscrapers, cafes, squares, and even historical areas galore!
