Graduation is right around the corner, and this week I had the pleasure of photographing Kira for her high school senior portraits. She was a blast to shoot, fun to talk to, had some really cool music on her iPhone, and did a wonderful job throughout.
In fact, we got so many awesome images, we had the hardest time narrowing it down. Even though I’m a Utah based photographer, I do work all over the country and shot models everywhere. But Kira was easier to shoot than many models I’ve worked with, so I used that and created a lot of commercial and fashion style images.
For instance, Kira loves to ski so I created this multi-image composite of her in the studio. I shot it like a magazine ad, then mixed in snow, and the Banff mountains that I shot when I was up in Calgary. I love the lighting and the expression in this. This was one of my favorites from the shoot.
Here is another favorite of mine. Her turning her head over her shoulder felt like it should be a painting, so I used this studio portrait to create this painting. I love the colors and the mood of this.
And of course here is the original photo, but instead taken in a different direction, as a finished signature texture piece. I love creating these texture pieces, and seniors really love them too.
And this fun trio showing different expressions.
And here is a mix of images from the studio and one from just outside the studio.
One fun way to get a lot of senior portraits without having to buy a ton of wall portraits is to get a collage like this. I really like the nine-up design, and this is a popular seller. They can show a lot of moods, sides, and outfits in a cool design.
Well thank you so much for the fun and cool shoot, Kira. And if you’re a senior, now is the time to get in before graduation. Give me a call at 801-728-3317. Let’s capture this moment in time in a fun and cool way. I really do know just how to light and photograph you with a magazine/fashion sense that will capture your personality and make you look amazing.
And until next time America.
