Well technology issues are absolutely NO fun but I supposed it was about time after years and years of nothing but little blips for us to have a major melt down crash of epic proportions and that’s exactly what happened last month to our blog and then website (which super fun perk, includes our email!). Luckily, a couple friends of mine from college have a small business web/design business so I was able to get them on the job and let them work their magic. And I’m so so so excited to say that this week we are back up and running and I have a TON of sessions to share with you from the weeks we missed starting today with Hannah’s first half of her senior session!
We kicked off Hannah’s session at her beautiful home. I LOVE having senior (and family) sessions at client’s homes because it adds a level of personalization that we just cannot get anywhere else. Even if we aren’t showcasing the home (like we often do for family sessions) you’ll still always know that those were your trees, garden, yard, etc even decades later when you look back on the images.
Plus, these guys kept a little hidden gem up their sleeves and when I pulled in and saw this beautiful classic car I knew we had to work it into the session. It wasn’t originally planned but it worked so so well with Hannah’s outfit and added one more unique element to her session.
After finishing up at her home we headed down the street for a bit more urban look and I love the locations we found!
One super fun thing for me with parents on session is creating something they saw happening but had no idea was actually happening! The below images was a fun example of that. To start this shot I went back into the alley behind Hannah to setup the light… to the untrained eye I was basically meddling around in a dirty back corner of an alleyway. Then at Hannah’s premiere here mom saw these images and goes “OOOOOO that’s what you were doing back there!” and she loved them. We laughed about how she could not figure out what in the world I was doing back in the corner before shooting this.
We’ve got the second half of Hannah’s session scheduled later this summer but we wanted to fit in the first half before she graduated. Stay tuned for more later this summer! And as always a big thank you to the talented Katie at Mint Salon for the beautiful hair/makeup.
