Girls can be anything they want.  They can be girly, they can be athletic, they can show off their strong side or their sweet side.  Capturing every side of this senior girl’s personality is exactly what photographer Aimee Woolverton of Aimee Louise Photography did in this beautiful session below!

“Ashlee is a relaxed, fun and athletic girl.  She wanted something that would reflect her personality.  I wanted to capture her natural style and beauty along with her fun, athletic side,” said Aimee.

ashlee_senior_girl_photography_1ashlee_senior_girl_photography_6What was your inspiration for this photo shoot?
Ashlee is a relaxed, fun, and athletic girl.  She wanted something that would reflect her personality. I wanted to capture her natural style and beauty along with her fun, athletic side.

Where did this photo shoot take place?
My studio is located in an old cotton mill.  We also went to a lake near the studio.

Did you collaborate with this senior to come up with the clothing and/or concept for this shoot?
Yes.  She wanted some stylish images.  But she also wanted to include her sport and the college she will be attending.

What camera, lens or other equipment was used for this shoot?
Canon 5D Mark III
Canon F2.8 70-200MM Lens
Canon F2.8 24-70MM Lens
ProFoto B2 and Profoto 24″ octagon softbox

What time of day were these taken?
Late afternoon to sunset


Can you share any post-processing techniques used when editing this session?
My style is clean and natural.  My goal is to get everything right in the camera so as to have as little post work as possible.  I run the images through Lightroom first to make my sure my color balance in camera was correct, and to correct for the proper white and black points if necessary.  Then I go to Photoshop and  use portraiture on about 40% for the skin and whiten the teeth a little bit. I finish by running a Florebella action that I purchased many years ago and modified for my style.  It adds contrast, lightens the center, adds a slight vignette, and sharpens the image.

What is your favorite thing about this session?
I loved capturing her various sides to her personality – the playful side and the serious side.  I also loved the balance between natural light and additive light on the images we took outside.

What do you want this session to convey about this senior and about your senior photography style?
My goal is to incorporate the essence of each senior into the session while at the same time bringing out their natural beauty.  I really feel we did that with Ashlee.

What is one tip you can share with other photographers regarding photographing seniors?
Always have an in person consultation prior to the session.  That is where you and the senior can plan their perfect session.  They feel invested in the session before they get there and it increases their excitement.  You get to know the senior before the session which allows for a more natural comradery at the session.  Everyone is more comfortable from the start.  It is a win-win and well worth the time invested.
