Some of my very favorite subjects to photograph are high school seniors, I just adore them. Students these days are so willing to be themselves, project their personality & insert that into their photographs and most of all, do things that set themselves apart from others which is a far cry from when I was a senior back in the ’80s (YES, the ’80s!) where most of us were cookie cutter copies of one another or at least the other members of whichever clique we belonged to and all of our senior pics pretty much looked the same. Now the sky is the limit and I always have fun brainstorming and bouncing ideas off of senior clients & their parents and then seeing what they decide on.
This is Jordan and I just adore her. She’s in band and because of that became friends with my son who is also in band even though she’s a year older. I was a band girl too so I can totally relate! She’s an excellent French Horn player and decided to bring it along on her shoot as well as her letter jacket, I was thrilled about that and just love any little things that add personal touches to the portraits.
Go Steele Knights!
This is my personal fave……just LOOK at those big hazel eyes!
Thank you Jordan, hope you have an awesome senior year!
Speaking of the ’80s earlier, I was able to sneak off to Houston for the weekend to see one of my favorite ’80s bands in concert, Depeche Mode, and it was such a fun drift back into nostalgia! I love to see these older bands pull themselves together, put aside differences, reunite and become just as good as they ever were again. Good for them! I hadn’t seen them in concert before and they just totally blew me away, FANTASTIC! Needless to say, I’ve had Depeche Mode music in heavy rotation on my iPod for the past week or two in preparation for the show and I don’t see any end in sight…..still love those guys and their music is still as relevant as ever. Speaking of which, time to crank up some ’80s tunes and get some more work done. ‘Till next time…….
