Katy senior Katie and I have been talking about her senior portraits for almost a year now. Her mom originally contacted me out of frustration. Katie is a lot like me (and a lot like all of my clients) in the sense that we all find ourselves not really being into what the masses are into. If you plotted us out on a Bell Curve we’d all find ourselves lumped together way out on the edges. And that’s cool because that’s what makes us unique. However, it can also make things difficult. In an age and area where most photographers are doing the exact same things like taking senior portraits on railroad tracks and on tree swings, it can be difficult finding someone to do something unique.
Katie and her mom wanted to do something with a vintage-flair that was equally unique and age appropriate.
Katie told me about photos that she remembers constantly looking at when she was younger. They were photos taken of her grandmother in post-WW2 England. The photos were candid moments of her grandmother, just hanging out and enjoying life. These simple, timeless photos are what we used for inspiration for Katie’s senior portraits and I’m ecstatic with the result.
