Senior Grad

Posted by jessphoto16@yahoo.com on February 1, 2016 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Senior season is among us and I love how they are so natural in front of my camera! They know their best side and posing that makes them look their best, needing little instruction from me. This historic gem is located in old town Helotes and is the perfect setting with their georgous landscaping, flowers and big beautiful swing, this is my wonderland! I can not wait to shoot a wedding here in May!

Loved working with Anthony, at a new location... All  seniors are great to work with because they know how to pose and know what makes them look good... but try working with a theatre major! They can take direction and give emotion on demand!  Thinking the pose by the door is one of my favorites! Love seeing moms reaction when they see their boys all grown up during the reveal!

2016 Senior Victoria having fun in front of the camera. She had so many great poses to go through! We loved having the ducks playing in the background, perfect timing! She was such a natural and towards the end she was able to do a few of her own poses (the one at the end with her red hair) and it turned out to be one of the favorites!

2016 Graduate

    This has been a very busy time of year! This session was done when it was still about 100 degrees out, so even with the heat she still rocked her sessions! This is Rebecca, graduating this spring, she was melting at the end of our session but didn't complain! She didn't mind me taking all of the pictures and she even through in some of her own poses to show off her personality. She gave me lots of great smiles and poses and made it so hard to choose my favoirtes.


Summer Senior Session

Here is Kara, another of my georgous seniors for 2016.  She was great to work with, and loved taking pictures as do all of my Seniors do. They are always so fun and know which side is their good side, so working with me, I can make them look awesome! It was great to see the expressions from her parents... you don't realize how much your children have grown untill you see them like this!

Here is Zach, one of my Seniors for 2016 who loves spending time with his truck. We had a quick session then headed over to a local spot to get these amazing truck shots. Love working with Seniors who have a passion because it helps thier personality shine through!

Had a great time photographing this amazing teen!! She is aspiring to be a model and she looks stunning! The gardens are back in full bloom and the colors are so vibrant! It was a hot summer evening with this Texas local, and almost 2 full hours and she was awesome as she walked around in thoes heels! I love how these images came out, bright colors and all!

Love this session and very happy with the way the portraits turned out! Putting some of the tecniques I learned to good use! The thing about bridals is I do not get to post until the wedding is over so this was killing me to keep it to myself. Enjoy!

Prima Ballerina

Here is the cutest ballerina I could find! She just started her first ballet class and loved it! She was willing to show off some moves that she learned and let me pose her as I wished. It's funny to see her take my direction since she sits in on all of my sessions and hears me telling others how to pose. She is great behind and in front of the camera. Her bother did mention that I took a lot of poses of her... I think that was a hint he wants his session soon too. I took so many poses because I wanted to make sure I had a few decent ones but then it came to where I loved them all and had a hard time narrowing it down to just a few. For example, I had two similar poses that looked great in black and white and in color. Could not choose so now I have 4 I love just like that! Here are a few of my favorites even though I had about 40 good ones. Everyone always has the same trouble choosing their portraits when coming into my studio and boy do I know what they are going through!
