Senior Inspiration – {Linkes Photography}

July 04, 2016

Happy July 4th everyone!  This holiday is such a great holiday for our nation and it is also a great way to get your senior clients or models involved in celebrating America’s birthday with a fun Fourth of July inspired photo shoot!

In this session below by photographer Taylor Linkes of Linkes Photography in Kentucky, these best friends wanted to celebrate the 4th as well as their friendship since pre-school!

Check out this fun session below and read what Taylor had to say about it!  Thanks for sharing your work with Seniorologie Taylor!



blog1blog6blog2Where did this photo shoot take place?
At Kaiti’s grandparents home in Monticello, Kentucky. Miles and miles of fields, and a beautiful barn.

Did you collaborate with this senior to come up with the clothing and/or concept for this shoot?
I really wanted to do a styled shoot with this concept, so I found these seniors and it was obviously fate 😉 We did coordinate outfits together and come up with cute ideas (ex. sparklers, smoke bombs)

What camera, lens or other equipment was used for this shoot?
Canon EOS 70D
Canon 50mm 1.2 L II

What time of day were these taken?
6:45 PM (Sunset)

What is your favorite thing about this session?
The inseparable bond that these ladies have. They were just so much fun! Also, as you can tell, they are ALL stinking GORGEOUS and it’s always amazing to show them what you see on your side of the camera.

blog7What do you want this session to convey about this senior and about your senior photography style?
I really really really love to be natural. I’m not for crazy posing and sitting still. I like to tell jokes that make you laugh or tell you to walk with one foot in front of the other. I like to capture the REAL YOU.

These seniors are beautiful, and talented dancer’s who have been friends FOREVER. I think it’s safe to say that we had SO much fun with this styled shoot.

What is one tip you can share with other photographers regarding photographing seniors?
Be yourself! The best photographs are found when your senior can truly be comfortable with you. Not to mention, you also take something away from the session… a new friend 🙂
