When Anna contacted me for her senior portraits, she told me she wanted to do some happy, sunny Spring Flowers portraits. UM YES PLEASE!!
I’m alllll about capturing who you are for senior sessions in particular. It’s SUCH a fun time in life (despite all the changes), and there’s so much exploration and self-expression. I’m here for it!
I tell all my seniors these are not the traditional, cheesy, posed senior photos they’re used to seeing online. We are going to design a session that feels true to them and do lots of carefree prompts & movements throughout the shoot in order to create authentic photos. I also tell my clients they can send me mood boards on Pinterest beforehand. And I will help you with outfits and styles so we create a shoot that is truly YOU.
For Anna’s Spring Flowers portrait session we decided on three outfits, but these two stole the show. We started out with a short white Summer dress, which perfectly contrasted the yellow flowers that were blooming in the Richmond countryside for her session. She was so full of joy and laughter the whole time, this dress fit her vibe perfectly! And then to switch it up we went with a navy small floral print maxi dress that was off the shoulder. It was perfect for dancing around in the fields! We also made sure to show off her custom painted graduation cap! It was so beautiful!!! She’ll definitely have that as an heirloom forever!
Anna’s Spring Flowers portraits were some of my favorite, and I’m so happy to share them with ya’ll! I promise these are laidback & natural portraits. No awkward posing here!
[…] I like to offer a variety of poses in my senior photo shoots, but most of the time I err on the side of “prompted” over posed. Giving my clients movement to do, (instead of a stiff pose), results in more authentic & real images. And I’m alllll about that. I want you comfortable & having fun. You can see another senior session I photographed in that style HERE. […]
