Destination Senior Pictures – Sunflower Fields

When Victoria and her mom said they wanted to take senior pictures in sunflower fields, I was excited to try a new location. Nothing says happy and fun-loving like a field of sunflowers either, and it brought out Victoria’s playful side. It’s a bit of a drive, but the pictures are completely worth it! Victoria looked absolutely gorgeous in her white dress, cutting sunflower stems […]

Senior Portraits at Meadowlark Gardens

Meadowlark Gardens in northern Virginia is a wonderful location for a photoshoot! Many of my seniors have their senior pictures taken there, as do many families. Meadowlark Gardens does charge a small admissions fee (about $5, although as a member I can bring in two guests for free), and there is an additional fee of $25 to use the garden for two hours of professional […]

Studio and Outdoor Senior Portrait Session

Everything came together beautifully for this senior portrait session. Emma is such a gorgeous girl, so athletic and smart and nice. She certainly made my job easy, I just had to point the camera at her and beautiful images would be created. She plays field hockey at Stone Bridge so we took a couple of shots in my studio of her in her gear: And […]

4 Reasons to Photograph Seniors With Musical Instruments

Some of my favorite senior pictures I’ve taken over the years are of seniors with musical instruments. From flute, saxophone, drums, and guitar — I’ve seen almost everything and I’ve loved the challenge of capturing the relationship between musician and instrument. Sometimes seniors don’t want to go through the “trouble” of bringing their instrument, but once they see their pictures they are usually very happy […]

Senior Pictures in Washington, D.C.

When Sam’s father contacted me a few years ago (yes I”m a little slow to blog) about Sam’s senior pictures, I was immediately intrigued. They live in Wisconsin, but Sam loves politics and wanted to have his senior pictures taken in Washington, D.C. at the Jefferson Memorial and the Capitol! Even though the Capitol was under construction, it was still a wonderful place to take […]

Yes Virginia, Guy Senior Portraits Are A Thing!
