Most photographers, when asked, will admit that they prefer a specific type of photo session. Personally, I enjoy photographing adults. It's not that I don't like doing family session or photographing children, I just enjoy the flexibility that comes with working with a subject who can, a) take directions, b) stand still, and
c) who, generally, wants to be photograhed. In that vein, I was more than happy to do a senior photo session for Janna. Not only is she just beautiful inside and out, she is so photogenic
and uplifting to be around.
The location that I used for this session is one of my favorites; an abandoned house that is just begging to be photographed. I have done sessions here in all seasons and for all purposes and I still
enjoy each time I get to shoot here. Maybe sometime I will do a post of all the different sessions
I have done at this location.
I have made no secret of my affinity for blue eyes. As soon as I saw Janna, I knew we were going to have fun. Her eyes just drank in the light and photographed beautifully.
When I first opened this picture on my computer, I was a bit taken aback. It was almost erie, in a haunting way, like a little girl who had just set her house on fire. After editing it, and staring at it for 10 minutes, it grew on me and I really like it now. It's still a bit freaky, but in a good way, I think.
Love her facial bone structure in this shot. If you are a photog, you will immediately know what I mean. If you are not, you will think im weird and looking too far into things.
Accessories really do make the shot. If I ever do a photo session for you, do me a favor and bring lots of accessories....hats, scarves, jewelry, cute shoes, coats, ect....they can take an average picture up a notch.
One of the things I like most about this location is just the variety
of settings to take advantage of. The house itself, of course, the field behind it, the fallen
trees; it has really been a great find for me.
Fresh, clean, and beautiful....that's why I love seniors.
