…”Aw, I loved that!!!”. The reason I want this for my senior girls is because I did NOT have that experience when I was getting my senior pictures done! I was in a studio with my mom and I had numbers surrounding me as I lay on a stark white backdrop that read “2006″. I’m not making fun of those style of senior portraits, but as I look back now, my images are SO boring. If I could have had the opportunity to hang out with my friends and take a variety of different portraits with them, I would have!
So this is the first time I’ve done senior portraits for FOUR girls at one time. I’ll admit, I was a little nervous. It’s hard to make sure every girl is getting the same amount of great, creative shots but let me tell you, I had a BLAST! I adore these girls and I loved my time with them. I loved it so much I will probably offer group portraits next summer! (Unfortunately I’m done with Senior portraits for this year because I’m getting MARRIED! ah!) Anyway, enjoy these favorites and have an awesome Monday!!!
Ok, So here is me being honest… really honest. I don’t particularly lovvve Maymont. There it is, I said it. BUT! I think Maymont is good for me! I don’t like shooting there because I think it is the photographer’s crutch of Richmond. Don’t know where to shoot? Lets go to Maymont! It seems to just suck the creativity and individuality out of photographers. Everyone knows “the spots” to shoot and exactly where to go to get good light and before you know it, your work looks like EVERYONE else’s. I found my work looking like that a while ago and I decided to change it! So shooting at Maymont is good for me because I always try to make it look COMPLETELY different from the last time I shot there. It’s a challenge and it’s hard to do, especially with four different girls. BUT! These 4 rocked it…. seriously, none of their images look the same and they are so unique to them! I love that!! Again, Maymont is gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous! One of my favorite weddings was shot there and one of my favorite engagement sessions! I just think photographers need to work super hard to make Maymont “theirs” and that is a tough challenge! Oh my gosh I’m rambling! Sorry sorry! Back to the pictures!
