Emily had her big lovable St. Bernard, Bailey, along for her senior portraits at the Sunken Gardens in Highland Park.
What do you get when you combine an intelligent, beautiful and quirky (her word) girl, a ukulele, a stage and a stream? Oh and grandma, can't forget grandma.
The answer: amazing pictures and too much fun creating them!
Every senior session is unique, but this is the first time grandma played such a large roll in the story. We were able to include soooooo many of Shannon's talents and interests, from dance and singing, to ukulele and cosplay, and to top it off we splashed in Irondequoit Creek.
The story of the splashing is captured for eternity in the fusion video created from our day together. For starters, I thought I'd share some of our favorite photos. In part 2, we'll share the video!
So sit back, and enjoy! If you love these photos, leave a comment for Shannon!
It's always a special honor to photograph siblings. It's also a fun challenge. We photographed Rebecca's senior portraits two years ago, so it was great to hear about what she is up to now.
But on to her younger brother Jimmy, who is now a senior. Both Rebecca and Jimmy are runners, so of course we wanted to make sure their two sessions were a little different.
Jimmy's favorite place to run is Mendon Ponds, so we spent a nice Fall afternoon there. He has such a natural, easy going smile. I also really love that red hair!
Enjoy, and good luck in your next race Jimmy!
Tony and Junior (his dachshund) were so easy going, it made for a easy breezy session at Cobbs Hill. No pun intended, although it was really windy up there! We had a great view of the city with the early fall colors. Tony rocked the formal look, and the casual outfit.
And bringing Junior along just made the session complete. There's never a bad time to include your four legged friend in your high school senior pictures. Especially when they give cute kisses like Junior did!
Enjoy the rest of your senior year Tony!
Rebecca is a cross-country runner. We met up for her portraits at Genesee Valley Park just a day or two before a big race there. It was a cool location as it is somewhere she frequents for competition, but there is also a wide variety of backdrops without having to go very far. We used a bridge, the Roundhouse Gazebo, a pavilion and just open space as well. Rebecca was a true star; look at that gorgeous long hair! Jealous! It was a pleasure photographing you Rebecca, enjoy the rest of your year!
