Vienna, VA High School Photo Shoot at Meadowlark Gardens

The majority of my clients tend to be business / corporate in nature, I always enjoy the opportunity to photograph High School Seniors.  The shoots are fun and there are no rules, just have fun with it.  A friend of mine has a daughter and she wasn't happy with the photographs from the photographer that took them at her high school.  So we met at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, VA and walked around for about 90 minutes and created all different types of images.

Some images were just straight up nice portraits, others we tried to go for a fashion look, and others a serious (but fun) look.  

Aspiring Actress Photo Shoot

The daughter of one my clients, Cassidy, was in need of some updated headshots for her acting career.  She is currently a student at a local university, but she has had a few small parts in TV shows and movies, and thinks that some day she might want to pursue acting fulltime.  Her agent asked that she get some new headshots so that he could more actively pursue some new roles for her.  It was really a fun photo shoot.  Cassidy was great in front of the camera.

Northern VA Senior Portrait Sessions

Senior portrait sessions are really enjoyable for a portrait photographer.  The seniors are usually very enthusiastic and excited about the photo shoot.  We discuss the shoot ahead of time and agree on a location and time of day.   Once the shoot begins I keep the pace fast and fun. I try to keep an open mind on all my photo shoots.  Hopefully every senior's photo session will be different than the next.  Every personality is different, every location is different and I want the photographs to reflect that. 

PHOTOGRAPHER INFORMATION:  Most of the images were shot with my Nikon D4 with the Nikon 85MM F1.4.  The wide angle shots were done with my Fuji X100S. I had with me a Nikon SB900 on a light stand that I used on some of the photos to give them a little pop.

Senior Portraits

A Penn State college friend of mine who lives in York, PA asked if I could come up to York and take some senior portraits of his senior high school daughter.  Needless to say, I was flattered and honored to do it.  They have a beautiful home and we were able to take all the photographs at their home.  The fact that his daughter is beautiful made my job very easy.
