High School Senior Portraits

IsabelleIsabelleIsabelleIsabelleIsabelle

I love photographing high school seniors because they are so vibrant!

A good match for me are Seattle students who want to look like real people, not fake glamour gals. Take Isabel for example, she is so naturally beautiful, she just showed off that beauty at the Ballard Locks and the backyard of her Ballard home (actually, that’s the neighbors house, a shared dock -:). I digress. The point is, be real!

It’s also interesting that often the clients favorites are not my favorites. I loved the expression in the second one, the black and white one, but she preferred the top. This is the wonderful subjectivity of photography and how we see ourselves.

In the end, she used the one with the shell for her yearbook photo and got the rest framed. Thank you Isabel. I had so much fun with you! Meryl

When Macey’s mom called me to photograph her daughter, she didnt tell me how amazing and sweet Macey was until I prodded. Macey is ASB president of a local Seattle high school, placed third in the state for her league in poll vaulting, and apparently can also model if she’d like! After getting the more “expected photos” towards the end of the session the setting sun and the natural beauty combined to turn into the above. Let me know what you like and what you don’t. Thanks!

Senior Portraits in West Seattle

Olivia Olivia Olivia Olivia Olivia Olivia Olivia

Olivia is an athlete and only had one weekend that worked for her, so we were going ahead with the photo session, rain or shine! Even though the forecast was for sun, when we met it was beginning to rain. Olivia and her mom were great sports. Her mom would hold the umbrella over her and then when we were ready to take the pictures, she’d quickly remove the umbrella and run out of the frame. After about 45 minutes, the sun came out, and her mom continued to be fabulous, playing assistant and holding my reflector. Thanks guys. You are terrific! Meryl
