Tiana came all the way from Pennsylvania with her family so that I could do her senior portraits, just like her sister Cherise a few years ago. We had to work around the rain, but for the most part we were blessed with blue skies and sun. I used to shake in my shoes when working in full sun, because it takes so much more attention to detail as far as exposure, finding the right light, and posing. When I lived in PA, sunny days were rare. Once I moved to South Carolina though, I had to step up to the plate quickly and learn how to shoot regardless of the sun. Now I just LOVE it! I feel that my images are so much more vibrant when I can use the sun, especially for backlighting.
I shot these images in nearby Seneca SC and around my home in Keowee Key, as well as on the shores of Lake Keowee. I love the different looks that we were able to get and the wardrobe choices that Tiana made. The long black dress was a last minute addition that was my idea – I wanted to have that look on the beach with the lake in the background. A little off camera flash made it happen!
I’m super sensitive to appropriate posing with senior girls. Their beauty is natural and effortless, and my goal is to capture that.
I WILL NOT do any sort of “super-model sexy” poses, or “wet-look” highly styled sessions. I am happy to refer you to photographers who will do them, though, if that is what you had in mind.
I had so many great shots of Tiana, and it got me excited for the coming Senior Picture season! Check out the slideshow of her images (or watch it larger here on YouTube). If you or someone you know needs Clemson SC High School Senior Portraits, or actually senior pictures anywhere in the upstate area or in southwestern PA like Peters Township, Upper Saint Clair, Mt Lebanon, South Fayette, Trinity, or McGuffey, take a look! If you think we are a good fit, give me a call so that I can answer your questions. I only take a limited number of seniors each year, since they are so time-intensive, but they truly are one of my most favorite types of sessions!
