Senior Portrait – Alyssa | FCHS – Class of 2014 (CharlottesvilleVA Photographer)

Meet Alyssa, a beautiful senior from Fluvanna County High School. One of my favorite things is when seniors personalize their portrait session and Alyssa certainly did that! She has been swimming almost her whole life so it was only fitting that we have part of her session at a pool where she practices. This was my first time photographing a swimmer and I loved it! All of the colors in the background looked so cool against Alyssa dresses!

We then headed to downtown Charlottesville for some urban photos. When I found out Alyssa loved to read, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! I borrowed an awesome chair from a friend (thanks Megan!) used a combination of my books and Alyssa’s, and put her in front of the coolest graffiti wall I’ve ever seen! A quick trip to the top of a parking garage gave us a few photos of Alyssa and a small fraction of her shoes collection…I have never seen so many cool shoes outside of a shoe store!

We spent the last part of the session taking photos after the sun had gone down…another first for me! I love the way all the lights in the background look! At the very end of the session, I noticed how incredible the sky looked. All of my lights had been packed up so I took a few photos using the available light. The photo is totally different than my usual style but the sky was too beautiful to pass up!

I had a wonderful afternoon you and your family Alyssa. Good luck at Virginia Tech and enjoy the rest of your senior year!

Senior Portrait | Lyra – MHS – Class of 2014 (Charlottesville VA Photographer)

Lyra is one of my senior reps from Monticello High School’s Class of 2015 and absolutely love photographing her! Last year we had her mini-session at a natural location so this time Lyra wanted something that had an urban feel to it. One of the things I love best about urban sessions are things are always changing! I’ve explored this location before but they recently added some of the coolest graffiti that I’ve even seen!

We then moved to the top of a parking garage for some sunset shots…the sky was amazing!!  Lyra you absolutely rocked your session! I have really enjoyed photographing you this year and wish you the best of luck when you head off to Lynchburg College! Enjoy the rest of your senior year!

Senior Portrait – Kassidy | FCHS – Class of 2014 – (Charlottesville VA Photographer)

I took Kassidy’s formal yearbook photo and I was happy she wanted to schedule a lifestyle session with me too. I feel like these session really showcase a person’s personality and Kassidy’s is absolutely adorable! We started off in downtown Palmyra where Spring had finally sprung, the trees were beautiful. Speaking of beautiful…how fantastic is her hair? And eyes? Pretty much everything about her! 🙂

We then moved on to Pleasant Grove for a change of scenery. When Kassidy told me she was going to bring along some books, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The field of yellow grass, with an amazing sunset behind it was the perfect spot to use my little loveseat. I encourage my senior clients to make a Pinterest senior portrait board so I can get an idea of the type of photos they are interested in. When I saw the glitter blowing photo Kassidy liked, I knew we had to recreate it. It turned out fantastic and may be one of my favorite photos ever!

Thanks so much for a great afternoon Kassidy! You are such a sweetheart and I had the best time photographing you. Enjoy the rest of your senior year and good luck at VCU!

Senior Portrait – Emma | FCHS – Class of 2014 – (Charlottesville VA Photographer)

The trees are starting to bloom and spring senior portraits are in full swing! A few weeks ago, I met Emma and her parents in Charlottesville for her senior portrait. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and though it was early in the season, we were able to find some beautiful colors in the backgrounds.

It’s always exciting when seniors want to personalize their photography sessions and Emma sure did that! She brought along her quilt from when she was a kid, along with a few of her favorite books. When I saw that Edgar Allan Poe and Grimm’s Fairy Tales were among the bunch I was thrilled…those are two of my all time favorites! I love all of her photos, but the ones with the books are my absolute favorites!

Emma was a delight to photograph and is so beautiful, both inside and out! I had a great time during the session and really enjoyed spending the afternoon with her and her parents. Good luck with your future Emma and enjoy the rest of your senior year!

Senior Portrait – Anna | FCHS – Class of 2014 (Charlottesville VA Senior Portrait Photographer)

I am so excited that it’s senior portrait season again! I always have the best time and Anna’s session was no exception. I photographed her older sister Taylor a few years (and had a fantastic time) so I was super excited for Anna’s session. The whole family is so much fun to work with, I spent most of the session laughing…I love it when a photography session is like that!

I tried out a new location for the first part of her session and am so glad that I did. The sun coming through the trees made the most amazing backdrop! Oh and I should add, those are really the color of Anna’s eyes…absolutely incredible! 🙂 We then moved on to Pleasant Grove where Anna has spent time playing soccer over the years. I loved being able to capture her in action!

Thanks for a great afternoon guys. I love the fact that you chose me to photograph both of your beautiful daughters. Enjoy the rest of your senior year Anna and good luck at Virginia Tech!
