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
Annika was just fantastic to work with, open to all sorts of ideas, and humored the photographer! And, her brother gave a great assist holding my reflector.
As a result, she was given a large selection (over 100) of images to chose from from our 2 hour session in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill in Seattle. She hasn’t picked her favorites yet, but here are some of mine. As a side note, my choices are often very different than my clients.
Do you know anyone who didn’t get their Senior Portraits done in time for the yearbook, but still want to document this time in their lives? Or perhaps you are thinking ahead for August when you will get your portrait done when school’s out, and things are not so hectic. Either way, I hope you’ll consider me for your portraits.
My style is natural, relaxed and classic. Let’s just go out and have fun! There are no “poses” and number of outfit changes, just me revealing the best you!
Thanks for looking! Meryl
