Collin | Louisa County High School – Class of 2018 – Charlottesville Senior Portraits

It’s been such a busy fall that I’m woefully behind with updating my blog. In honor of the LCHS Lions making it to the Class 4 State Championship game (which they’ll play tomorrow afternoon), I wanted to make sure I added Collin’s session to my website ASAP! He currently plays left guard with the LCHS offensive line and has been on the varsity team for the past four years. He’s played football since he was eight years old so there was no doubt his session was going to involve his favorite sport!

I couldn’t resist taking a old photo of of facebook to compare it with the yearbook photo I took of Collin. He’s still just as handsome as ever!

We started the session with a few casual shots of Collin around the stadium. The lion that Collin is standing in front of actually blows fire out of it’s mouth when LCHS scores a touchdown!! How cool is that?!

As the session went on, we were fortunate to see the most incredible sunset! The colors kept getting richer and more vibrant…it was so dramatic!

No doubt Collin is a force to be reckoned with on the field but he was one of the sweetest, most polite guys I’ve ever photographed. Paige, I know you and your family are so unbelievably proud of the man you’ve raised!

Collin has already been accepted at Randolph Macon, Hampton Sydney and Bridgewater and is waiting to hear back from a few other schools. No matter where he attends college, I know he’ll do amazing things. Both on and off the field!!

Thank you so much for an wonderful afternoon Collin and Paige!! I loved every minute of your session and wish you nothing but the best with your future plans. Enjoy the rest of your senior year!

GOOD LUCK AT THE GAME TOMORROW LCHS !! We’re all rooting for you!!

It’s been such a busy fall that I’m woefully behind with updating my blog. In honor of the LCHS Lions making it to the Class 4 State Championship game (which they’ll play tomorrow afternoon), I wanted to make sure I added Caleb’s extreme sports session to my website ASAP!

I first met Caleb and his mom Stacey when they came to my studio for his yearbook photos. While I loved the way his yearbook photo turned out, I was super excited for his sports session. That’s where you let your passion for your sport show!

Caleb has been playing football since he was ten years old. First with Little League, then Middle School. He currently plays wide receiver, safety and defensive end for LCHS. Caleb has applied to Virginia Tech and James Madison University.

I am in love with these extreme sports portraits! I keep the photos black and white so you don’t have to deal with competing colors of the uniforms and equipment. All you are focusing on is the athlete and their gear. Photos like these are a wonderful alternative to traditional sports portraits!

Thanks for an excellent session Caleb & Stacey! Caleb enjoy the rest of your senior year and good luck with your future plans!

GOOD LUCK AT THE GAME TOMORROW LCHS !! We’re all rooting for you!!

I hope everyone had a great summer! I’ve been busy taking senior yearbook photos for FCHS, LCHS and a few of the other schools. If you haven’t taken yours yet, no worries. I’m still scheduling them! Last week though, I had my first outdoor session of season with Newlin, one of my 2018 senior models from FCHS. I love taking yearbook photos & studio shots but shooting outdoor is my absolute favorite!

Usually portraits in August are pretty hot & humid but we were fortunate enough to have an absolutely wonderful day! After Newlin had her makeup done by Sydney (my fabulous MUA), we headed out to a gorgeous farm near Zion’s Crossroads, Virginia.  I’d driven past the farm many times (and always marveled at how beautiful it was) but this was my first time actually getting to go inside the property!

I’m so glad that we decided to bring this red hat along…it was the perfect compliment to Newlin’s outfit! Man oh man do I love theses photos! I’ve told Newlin before that I loved her face and I wasn’t joking. I LOVE photographing her!

Since Newlin is the current President of Fluvanna’s FFA and has been a member of the organization since she was a freshman, it was only fitting that we had her session at this fantastic farm!

I couldn’t resist taking a few more of Newlin with the hat. Especially since we had this amazing sunset to pair it with!

A quick outfit change and we moved on. One of the best things about this place was all the variety it has in a relatively small space!

Thank you so much for an outstanding session Newlin!! I always have the best time photographing you and I look forward to nest time!

I hope everyone had a great summer! I’ve been busy taking senior yearbook photos for FCHS, LCHS and a few of the other schools. If you haven’t taken yours yet, no worries. I’m still scheduling them! I had a little bit of a break before my busy fall season though so I though I’d update my blog with some of my spring sessions from the Class of 2017.

Britney actually broke her senior portraits up into two different sessions, fall & spring. This an excellent way to get the best of both worlds. You can take advantage of the beautiful fall foliage and then in the spring, you have an entirely different look to your gallery! For her fall session, we went to the downtown Palmyra area. It’s one of my favorite places to capture the beautiful fall leaves! Britney was so easy to photograph, I barely had to give her any direction at all!

We took a quick trip over to Pleasant Grove to finish up her fall session. I love Britney’s smiling photos but man! Her model stare is absolutely gorgeous too!!

Time flew by again and we geared up for the spring part of the session. Just like last time, Britney blew me away in front of the camera…she’s an absolute natural!

Thanks again for choosing me as your senior photographer Britney! I really enjoyed working with you throughout the year and wish you nothing but the best at Virginia Tech…GO HOKIES!!

I hope everyone had a great summer! I’ve been busy taking senior yearbook photos for FCHS, LCHS and a few of the other schools. If you haven’t taken yours yet, no worries. I’m still scheduling them! I had a little bit of a break though so I though I’d update my blog with some of my spring sessions from the Class of 2017!

Nothing makes me happier then when seniors personalize their senior portraits and Gage sure did that! He wanted part of his session to include shot put & discus on the UVA track. He also wanted some sunset shots with motorcycle. I was super happy to accommodate him! While I’ve photographed both many sports before, this was my first time photographing this!

Discus is Gage’s favorite sport (he actually holds the record for this at his school) so we mainly concentrated on that. I was amazed by how far he could throw it. I guess that’s why he holds the record! 🙂

Love this silhouette shot of Gage!

After the sports photos, we headed to Fluvanna to take a few casual shots. Gage is a smiley guy but I just had to get a serious shot!

A quick outfit change and we were able to take advantage of the setting sun…love this golden light!

Last shots of the day were with Gage and his motorcycle. He works at a Harley Dealership in Orange, Va where his job is to take people on test drives. How cool is that?!

Thank you so much for a great afternoon Gage!! I has so much fun spending the afternoon with you and you family. Good luck at Liberty! In July, he set a new collegiate meet record for discus! Talk about a great start to your college career!
