Fairport NY Senior Pictures: Kristen in the Sunflowers

Kristen came to us all the way from Rome, New York for her senior portrait experience! She had read all about the Sunflower Festival at Wickham Farms and knew that was what she wanted for her senior photos. We hit up the Thomas Creek Boardwalk first to fit her barefoot country vibe, then enjoyed a sunset in the sunflowers. 

Who knew there were so many varieties of sunflowers? I sure didn’t. Tall, short, yellow, orange. They were all beautiful and fun to play in. Kristen was fun to work with and up for anything. I hope you enjoy her Fairport senior portrait session as much as we enjoyed capturing it!

Thanks for choosing Lori and Erin Photography, hope you’re having an awesome Senior year!

James: Senior Portraits, Pittsford Mendon, Rochester NY

I had the pleasure of meeting James last year when he came along to his brother’s senior portrait session as comic relief.

This time around, it was his turn in front of the camera. He rocked it with his Led Zeppelin t-shirt. He also donned a sport coat and a sweater which fit his dreamy, reflective personality - the way his mom describes him.

It was a great day for high school senior portraits in Highland Park, and I’m sure there are many more great days ahead for this bright soul. Thanks James, I can’t wait to see where life takes you next!

Jeremy: Victor Cobblestone Creek Senior Portraits

If he’s not on the course, you might find Jeremy at the pool house. He loves taking advantage of having Cobblestone Creek Country Club literally in his backyard. He enjoys having a golf course so much, that Jeremy plays for the Victor High School golf team. 

There are the amazing bridges and easy to find scenes at Cobblestone Creek, but we took the carts out and found some off the beaten path areas as well. Did you know there are railroad ties around some of the sand traps? So unique!

And wow, this kid is talented. After just a few practice swings (so we could get those action shots) Jeremy put the ball 5 feet from the hole... from off the tee. That would have taken me at least 8 strokes. :) 

It was a pleasure working with you Jeremy, hope you’re having a great year and good luck in the Spring!

Durand Eastman Beach: Elizabeth's Senior Portraits

Like her brother Christopher, Elizabeth is very easy going, relaxed and also has a perfect smile :) {Link to his post}

She will join him at RIT, but for accounting – which fits her exacting personality very well!

However, unlike her brother, she wanted more of a natural setting for her Rochester NY senior pictures, so we hit Durand Eastman Park for the best of both forest and beach.

What's better than golden hour on the beach? Answer - nothing.

As we were shooting, I thought wow, Rochester could almost be mistaken for someplace tropical. The golden sky, the blue water, Elizabeth rocked everything from the fallen logs to the waves on the shore.

Elizabeth - I hope your senior year is memorable and fun!

Feel free to leave well wishes for Elizabeth in the comments! 

Cheers,

Lori

Sam: Greece Arcadia Senior Portraits, Class of 2019

Full of laughter and a naturally radiant smile, Sam was very easy to photograph. The focused face really only came out on the diamond, so you can tell he is passionate about his sport of baseball.

He pitches and catches for the Greece Arcadia Varsity team, and plays the drums. But what impressed me most about Sam is that he voluntarily spent his spring break building homes with Flower City Work Camp.

I just love living vicariously through all the things today's high school seniors are doing. Sam is active in his church and community, easy going and just one of those people you know is going to make an impact. In fact, he already has!

Looking forward to seeing what you do next, Sam. Have a great senior year!

Alexander: School of the Arts Senior Portraits

Alexander is a vibrant personality. He is kind, warm, and theatrical. 

He was referred to our studio by his cousin, Grace, so I knew this would be a fun session! We explored the Sunken Gardens and Highland Bowl together to make some senior portraits that would fit his characteristics perfectly.

Check them out - oh and wish him luck as the LEAD in Little Shop of Horrors this year! Congratulations Alexander!

John: Gananda Senior Portraits at Chimney Bluffs

When I met John, we talked about what he is interested in and what he wants to do. He wants to go into law enforcement, is a three season athlete and also likes to hike and hunt. One of his favorite places in the area is Chimney Bluffs. If you haven't been, you should. You'll completely forget that you live in NYS when you see this beautiful area.

I could see him get more excited about his session the more he thought about going back there...

This session definitely had some adventure to it! There was some hiking to get to the best spots, and he had no problem changing outfits in the woods. The blowing wind down by the water disappeared as we climbed higher. It was a great way to spend a morning, and I enjoyed getting to know John and his mother more as we created fun senior portrait images.

Check them out, and John, have a great year! Thanks for bringing me along on the adventure.  :)

Shannon: Rush Henrietta Senior Photos, Part I

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!

Rachel: Victor High School Senior Portraits

Rachel is a gorgeous girl with a beautiful smile and an adventurous spirit. So naturally, we went on a little adventure for her senior pictures.

This bubbly Victor High School student led us on a tour of part of the Auburn Trails in search of an old abandoned house at the end of this particular trail. Unfortunately we took a wrong turn somewhere and never found the house, but we did find some spectacular spots for her portraits anyway! 

We found pretty wildflowers and fun trails paths through the woods. The black eyed susans were exactly the right color we were hoping to find. And her big teddy bear of a dog, Coda, was the best (and most lovable) accessory to her portraits.

Have a fun-filled Senior year Rachel!

Erin: Victor High School Senior Portraits at Eastman Museum

This is Erin. She just got back from a service trip building houses in PA. She's also into running, playing her ukulele and hanging out with friends. We enjoyed a gorgeous night in the Eastman Museum gardens for her senior portraits. Alexa, her sister, even joined us for a few shots!

Check em out, because you can't ignore those beautiful brown eyes.

Have an awesome year Erin!

Sara: Senior portraits with horse and dog, Canandigua Academy

Sara has loved horses since she was a little girl. Now she competes in barrel races and has three horses at home on their family farm! They also have several dogs and cats. And with all of those animals, their home still felt so peaceful. I loved spending time with Sara, Becky (mom), Max (horse) and Charley (dog) before we headed to Canandaigua Lake to wrap up the session there.

I had so much fun with this super sweet family!

And to top it all off - a sunset to die for! I just loved this session. Enjoy, and what are you waiting for? Schedule your unique at home senior portraits now!
