Many of our senior portrait clients opt for doing a couple of looks.
The approach that I use is that they should be different, not just the same thing with different clothing.
Kayla, thanks for helping me achieve this!

Best wishes to Ben as he begins his studies on the guitar in Los Angeles. We are looking forward to your first CD, and please remember Ben, that Enid has produced one of the worlds greatest, Michael Hedges!

When I was younger, I thought that if I just had a dozen poses, and an couple of backgrounds, I could be a really good photographer.
Now I know, it's not about the poses, or the background, it's all about who the client is, really is on the inside.
If you don't believe me, ask Victoria about this portrait, she will tell you what it took from both of us to get it right.

Tyler and DCI

Tyler's senior portraits reminds me that Monday, July 23 at 7:00, Drum Corps International will present its 6th annual show at the D. Bruce Selby Stadium. Ticket information can be obtained at 554-2352. This is "The Big Blue Marching Band's" largest fund raiser of the year. If you have never been, trust me, you will love the 6 Corps from across the USA.

The Anderson Sisters

Sometimes just being pretty is perfect!

Caleb plays some of his music out at Davinci's Coffee House, so naturally we thought it would tell a great story about his senior year (as well as a portrait on the Kremlin Football Field, and a studio closeup). The shirt he is wearing here is a t-shirt that was from his fathers college blue grass band, an homage to the past.

I am really flattered.
Miss Kaylee's grandmother brought her in for a modeling headshot. What's the big deal you may ask? Well, she is from LA, California, the land of headshots. I mean, how many great photographers are there in her hometown?
Thanks, thanks, and more thanks!

Sarah with a Prop

When I first opened my studio in 1975, many people asked me the same question, "do you have props?". And of course since I was just starting, my answer was "no". Back then I suspected that every one had their own props, and through the years, I have been proven correct (although most people do not have props on their props).

What a great location. Many years ago this corner was a tree farm. What a great place to build your home, and what a great area to have your senior portrait taken in.

Since Cory is one of my youngest daughter's friend, I am letting her write my blog today.
This is Lauren.
This photograph of Cory really shows who he is, and I personally think it's awesome. My dad did an excellent job of displaying something that Cory really loves to do.

Aren't seniors all different.
Miss Ali's senior portrait sure is different from the portrait of her mothers we did back in the 70's.
What a great job we have to see families grow and change.

What I love about this portrait is how the pink in the rock echoes the pink in her skin, also the black in her jacket is also echoed by the black in the rock. The fact that she looks like a million dollars is just an additional bonus!

My two favorite things about senior portraits, 1) every senior is different, so every portrait is different, and 2), it is always interesting to see what backgrounds or locations turn up that are just perfect for that portrait. I always kid my clients, "if you don't believe in God, just hang around me for two weeks, no one is that lucky".
Thanks Danielle for proving my point.
