I don’t want to choose favorites buuuut, Emily’s session was possibly my favorite senior session to date! I loved her energy, her adorable outfits, and her willingness to endure the frigid cold during her photos! I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with such incredible clients like Emily!! Check out some of my favorite photos from her session!
I don’t know about you, but picking out the perfect outfit to wear for a special occasion stresses the heck out of me! I’m totally fine picking out an outfit to wear to class, chapter meetings, or church, but choosing something to wear to a friend’s wedding or to formal is a whole other thing. And if you’re anything like me, picking out my outfits for my senior pictures was one of those stressful moments.
To be totally honest, I didn’t know college senior photos were even a thing until I started getting approached my sophomore year by girls in my sorority who wanted me to take their graduation photos! But after 2 years of being booked solid during senior photo season, I actually wonder why more people aren’t making them a priority!
I took Shayna’s engagement photos several months prior to this, so I was so excited when she contacted me again about taking her graduation photos, along with her best friend, Rebecca! I actually love it when best friends or sisters decide to share a photo shoot because who doesn’t love getting more cute pics with their bff??!
I get a lot of questions about what it is I do for Roots Boutique and what all these photo shoots look like. Basically, we spend a couple of hours every couple of weeks driving to various locations around Waco—they bring the clothes, and I pick out the locations and take the photos.
Now that summer is here and I finished my summer classes, I’m finally getting around to blogging all the sessions I had throughout the spring semester. It was a busy season, but such a wonderful one! This spring was my busiest yet, and though it was overwhelming at times, I am so grateful for all the wonderful clients I got to work with.
As I was in the midst of senior photo season this past spring semester (a.k.a. the most hectic time of the year), I thought back to my (high school) senior photos. While most of the girls I photograph around this time of year are 4 years older than I was back then and were graduating from college instead of high school, the process is still a pretty stressful one. How do you know what outfits to wear? What all do you need to bring with you? How do you communicate what you’re wanting from your photographer?
