Over the past year I’ve started something new with my senior clients, and each time I do it, I love it more and more! I’ve stared having a consultation call with each senior before her session, and I feel like that helps us (a) get to know each other better before we meet face to face (b) get some of the nervous jitters out that sometimes happen before a session (especially if it’s your first time in front of a camera) and (c) it gives her the opportunity to ask me anything before her session so that we don’t spend a chunk of our shooting time talking about logistics, outfits, etc! (I’m kicking myself for not implementing this part of the session process sooner!!)
When Kim and I started chatting about her session, I could tell right away that she was very creative and that she wanted the images from her session to reflect that. We talked about a few different ideas, and then eventually decided that because she’s an interior design major, she would bring her drafting desk for the second half of her session, and we’d take some shots of her working with the tools she typcially uses for design! I absolutely loved this idea, because it made her senior session have a little bit of a ‘lifestyle’ feel! :)
Kim was so sweet and wonderful to work with! This was her first time in front of a professional photographer, and she was a total natural! Seriously…a few of these cap and gown images were some of the very first shots we took, and right off the bat, she was nailing the poses!
During Kim’s session we chatted about how she was going to use her interior design degree, and she mentioned that she was very interested in medical interior design…for example, hospitals! How neat is that?! I can see her designing a beautiful hospital or doctor’s office that aides in the healing process!
You’re going to do awesome things, Kim! I’m so excited for you, and congratulations on graduating!!
Here are my favorites from Kim’s beautiful Radford senior session!
The ring Kim is wearing is her mom's class ring from Radford!
The blue water really brought out the blue in Kim's eyes, and I just love it!
Design and art by the water...these were some of my favorites!
Kim, you're gorgeous!
