Check out this book-filled session full of personality below! Thanks for sharing your work with Seniorologie Becky!
What was your inspiration for this photo shoot?
As her pre-consultation, we discussed her love of reading. We decided to incorporate this love into her senior portrait session.
Where did this photo shoot take place?
This portion of our photo shoot took place in Al Sabo Preserve in Kalamazoo, MI.
Did you collaborate with this senior to come up with the clothing and/or concept for this shoot?
Yes! I love collaborating with my seniors. It is important to me to include their passions and personalities into every session. I want their senior sessions to fully represent who they are at that moment.
What camera, lens or other equipment was used for this shoot?
Canon 5d Mark II with Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II USM, Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L USM and a reflector was used on some shots.
What time of day were these taken?
2.5 hours before sunset – the high treeline requires an earlier start time.
Can you share any post-processing techniques used when editing this session?
I like to keep my editing simple and clean…and these images called for an extra pop of color with the bright book covers, her amazing red hair and the wild flowers in the field.
What is your favorite thing about this session?
I love that when I asked her to bring her favorite books, she brought two bags full. I’ve even read a few of her favorites since our session. I also love that she is such great role model for young girls like my daughters.
What do you want this session to convey about this senior and about your senior photography style?
I love to capture natural, relaxed senior portraits and my favorite thing to capture is a laugh or genuine smile. I love to highlight their passion and their personalities – their true selves!
What is one tip you can share with other photographers regarding photographing seniors?
Definitely do a pre-session consultation with your seniors. We always meet over coffee, and it really helps me understand both what mom and what the senior want out of their session. It also breaks the ice and they are much more comfortable at their shoots because they have already met me – there is no warm up period needed.
