Sam’s Senior Portraits

Hey hey hey!
Meet Sam.

Last week, Sam and her mom and sister drove out to Wilmington from Charlotte to meet me for some beachy Roxy-esque senior portraits. I figured there was NO WAY our schedules would match because I only had one free day in Wilmington.. Fortunately, the odds were in our favor, and everything lined up perfectly. I love the Roxy surf style, and I of course love spending time at Wrightsville Beach, so I was stoked to have this all work out, and to get to meet Sam and her awesome family.

Everyone keeps asking me how I got to shoot Emma Watson! Isn’t she so cute?

I love these! The wind was SOOOO out of control! I seriously had to plant myself in the sand so I didn’t blow over! I am little!!! Luckily, my camera weighs me down. ;D

Love this color palette!

Gotta rock the deer shirt for mom!

Quick family shot!

Aww! What an awesome day! I am so happy it all worked out!!! All the best to you, Sam, and good luck in college!!! It’s the best time of your life.. live it up! Unless you decide to be a photographer, because then the good times never stop. 😉
Cheers!

Logan’s Senior Portraits

Today, Logan and her family came out to U St. to see me and to knock out some sweet senior portraits. Logan’s mom, Franchesca, is a family photographer so that’s really cool. I always love meeting other photographers!  I’m glad to have gotten the opportunity to throw in a little bit of my personal style into Logan’s senior portraits today. Something a little different than I am sure she is used to!

And finally.. my favorite… Graffiti Wall!!

That’s it! Congrats Logan and live it up your last year in high school! Then the real adventure begins!

Sierra’s Senior Portraits

Hey! I hate to do this to you- two studio shoots in a row! I know! But fortunately, they are very different!!

Do you guys remember Sierra? The swan from my animal series? Well, today I shot her senior portraits! So happy to work with her again.. she is such an incredibly talented model. It blows me away! I would say that she is easily one of the top 3 most photogenic people I think I have ever shot…. which makes my job super easy and fun!!!

We were going to shoot location but the NC tornadoes seemed to prevent that. No problem!

Again, Subreen came out to Davidson to work her makeup magic on Sierra.  We started with a more “natural” look… but not too natural!

 

She is just so photogenic! I love the blues of her shirt and eyes on the gray background. They compliment each other so well! Next up was a super cute denim dress. We knocked out a few studio shots with the dress and then after peeking out the window, I saw my chance to take her outside. With her dress and her cowboy boots, I knew just where to go…

This one is my favorite!! It totally looks like it could be an album cover or something. Carrie Underwood much?

So gorgeous…

Next up: Rockstar outfit! Sequin shirt that looks so great on her.. tough to pull something like that off! Glam!

The next outfit was my favorite outfit! Sierra kicked into fashion model mode and nailed these photos.


Sierra is going to USC next year where she is gonna rule the school. She wanted some photos with her incredibly long lasting USC balloons and USC hoodie. I love these.. I could just feel how excited Sierra was at the thought of going off to school. I am happy for her and I know she is going to kick ass down in South Carolina!


There ya have it! Sierra’s senior portraits!

OH! Bonus picture:

 She’s so vogue.. hehe… Alright bye!! xx.
