Prom season is in full swing! And it is an awesome time for senior photographers to add to their business with Prom Sessions!
Prom Sessions could be an individual senior hires you to take their senior photos and incorporates their prom dress into the sesssion, or a group of seniors hire you to take their entire groups senior photos! It can also mean you set up a mini session just for prom! Whatever the case is, prom photos are a great way to increase your bookings and create beautiful images!
In this session below, photographer Anjeanette of Anjeanette Illustration Photography said this was a friend group mini prom session.
“I got together with 6 sets of seniors for a friend prom mini session, each couple had about 15 minutes each of photographs before the Station Camp students went to the prom at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame,” said Anjeanette.
Check out these beautiful photos below and read what else Anjeanette had to say about them! Thanks for sharing your work with Seniorologie!!
Where did this photo shoot take place?
Sanders Ferry Park, beside the Old Hickory Lake Hendersonville, TN
Did you collaborate with this senior to come up with the clothing and/or concept for this shoot?
No collaboration, except for posing and smiles
What camera, lens or other equipment was used for this shoot?
Canon 5DM3, 70-200 lens, 85 mm lens
Can you share any post-processing techniques used when editing this session?
I edited this set mainly with VSCO and my own tweaks. As I shoot low iso and high shutter speed I get a lot of my contrast in camera, and love the greens of Fuji like presets!
What is your favorite thing about this session?
The couples were all a bit nervous and unsure at first- I made them stare at each other and show me their dances moves which always made them laugh. Seeing their butterflies turn into excitement and as they swirled their gowns and laughed was the best!
What do you want this session to convey about this senior and about your senior photography style?
While I do shoot flash and natural light, I wanted this shoot to be about the seniors expressions and mood- the happy excitement before a hug milestone. I wanted clean bright light to convey the feelings more than just the fashion.
What is one tip you can share with other photographers regarding photographing seniors?
Let them be themselves- see what they like and even if your a mom like me don’t be afraid of a corny dad joke, even the eye rolls can lead to real laughter and sincere smiles!
