    Brett’s senior portrait session was smooth sailing! His easy going personality and ability to take direction well led to some classic and natural high school senior portraits. As you can see from the senior portraits below, he was very confident and consistent, which makes my job a little easier! Overall, another great senior portrait session in Cary!

    Cary Senior Portrait | Alex U

    Not only a double senior portrait blog post day, but a double Alex senior portrait post day! For those of you that have followed my blog for a few years now, perhaps remember a certain Wicked Bat Mizvah I photographed, where yes, Alex was the star of the celebration! It’s been a wonderful getting to know Alex and her family over the past few years and exciting to see her reach this next milestone!

    Just like her bat mitzvah, Alex handled her senior portraits with ease, grace and enthusiasm! As to be expected, she was completely comfortable in front of the camera and we had a lot of fun during the senior portrait session in Cary! It’s been a pleasure watching Alex grow up and can’t wait to see what she does in the years to come. Take a look below at some of the fantastic senior portraits (and one awesome tennis shot) we came away with after the portrait session!

    Cary Senior Portrait | Alex

    Hard to believe that another senior class will be graduating in a few weeks! I’m a little embarrassed that I haven’t posted sooner about the 2015 senior class of 2015, but the good news is that I’ve had a busy (good busy) year. Besides helping visitors and photographers on multiple trips to Japan, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, family celebrations, school and sports photography and so on, I’ve also started working for USA Today Sports Images. Overall a great year and ready to start taking senior portraits for the class of 2016!

    Sorry to hijack Alex’s senior portrait post with the update, but knowing how easy going Alex is, I don’t think he will mind! Alex was really comfortable during his senior portrait session, which for guys, isn’t always the case! … Especially since Alex’s family came along so that we could take a few family portraits as well after we had enough senior portraits of him. It’s always fun to have extra friends and family come along for senior portrait sessions, and while Alex handled it great, but sometimes it can be a case of “too many cooks in the kitchen” with all the opinions going around!

    Sometimes the stars just align perfectly, like with Jasmine’s senior portrait session in Raleigh. We had great weather, she picked awesome outfits for her senior session (along with matching accessories), the lighting was perfect for portraits, she was a natural in front of the camera and we had lot’s of helping hands to assist as both parents were able to come and assist with the senior portraits. I always recommend bringing at least one parent, not only can they help to carry some clothes/accessories if necessary, but it’s a lot of fun to see the portraits instantly on the iPad fro them as well. Not to mention, getting instant feedback from the high school seniors and their parents about what kind of portraits they like is extremely helpful as I am taking the portraits!

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Grant

    Some high school seniors just seem naturally comfortable in front of the lens for their senior portrait session. Grant is certainly one of those seniors! Our senior portrait session in Cary went great and he took direction well. Not that I was having him bust out the poses from top model or anything like that, but trust me, especially for high school senior boys, posing doesn’t always come natural! On second thought, even for grown men, we just don’t pose as well as women usually! Grant was so relaxed, I’m sure that helped to keep his senior portraits natural and coming out great!

    During Daniel’s senior portrait session, we discovered that from Elementary School – High School, we had attended the same schools. Also, we both played a little baseball, and by little, I mean I was the worst kid on my kid pitch team and Daniel is an awesome pitcher for his school team! That is why for his senior portraits, we took a few on the baseball field and a senior portraits around campus. We had talked about wearing baseball gear on the field, but I really like the way the dressed up senior portraits on the baseball field came out. Luckily, we had great weather for Cary, North Carolina summer for his senior portrait session and were able to come away with some fantastic portraits!

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Devon

    For Devon’s senior portraits, his family had already scouted out the perfect location and had some great ideas about what they wanted. The location was great, very rustic with lots of texture but not distracting from the subject of the senior portraits! Of course it also helped that Devon was comfortable in front of the camera and open to all the ideas we were giving him. I usually don’t edit the color too much of the photos, but there is one senior portrait photograph that I put a little style on to match the rugged feel that was going on between the older barn and truck in the senior portrait. Be sure to check it out!

    Blythe is the younger sister of one of my previous high school seniors so I was so happy the family came back to me again for another round of senior portraits! She and her family had picked out a fantastic location that matched her personality and had personal meaning to the family which helped to make some great senior portraits. Of course it helped that she was a natural in front of the camera and seemed to enjoy the senior portrait session. I guess not only does being a good athlete run in the family, but modeling for senior portraits does as well! Take a look at a few of my favorite senior portraits from her session below!

    Despite a particularly hot day, the whole family came out for Matt’s senior portrait session in Cary. It was obvious from the beginning that sense of humor was a big part of family dynamics and I think it really helped to get some great senior portraits of Matt. We also were kept laughing during his senior portrait session, which is always a lot of fun! We even had time to take a a family photo or two at the end which is always nice to do before the high school seniors head off to university in who knows where!

    High school senior portraits during the North Carolina Summer can be a little bit… hot. Luckily, for Alex’s senior portrait session in Cary, we had particularly mild weather for a Summer high school senior portrait session! He was even able to wear a long sleeve pullover for a few shots without melting away. He also had a button up shirt with a bow-tie he tied himself for his senior portraits. Good variety and choices for outfits plus the mild weather and confident personalty lead to some wonderful senior portraits!

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Austin

    Nov 15 | Evan | No Comments |

    Mainly because I remember my own awkwardness from in high school, I am always impressed when high school senior guys do a great job and look so comfortable in their senior portraits. Austin was certainly comfortable during his senior portrait session and naturally fell into poses for his senior portraits. We got a good mix formal senior portraits in the button up shirt and some casual portraits in the polo and even a few with the lacrosse stick. When I get questions about what outfits are best for senior portraits, and I get that question from parents of seniors a lot, the first of many bits of advice is to bring a variety with at least one outfit being as formal as your senior will feel comfortable in and one that is how the high school senior dresses normally… and then some in between! If you have questions about outfits and accessories for your own senior portraits, just ask me!

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Keegan

    I’ve always felt that Cary Academy is a great location to take high school senior portraits. The well kept grounds and impressive architecture gives a little bump to the classiness of the senior portraits! I was really happy that a lot of seniors in the 2014 class wanted to take their senior portraits there and Keegan was one of the first of many seniors this year to request it. While we had to wait a few minutes for the rain to stop, afterwards he had these cool clouds and soft light that I love for portraits. After just minutes into the senior session, he seemed comfortable in front of the camera and with all those factors coming together, we came away with great senior portraits!

    For Matthew’s senior portrait session, we actually had a split session due to a yearbook deadline and an injury he experienced playing baseball. For the first session, we met at my studio and had a great time even though we had to try to hide one of his arms because of the injury. For the second session, we met at a park a few months later, and those images turned out great too, especially since all of the leaves were starting to change!  Not to mention, everyone appreciated having the senior portrait session when the weather was a little cooler!  Check out the images from his senior portrait session below!

    Clayton, a talented basketball player from Cary, had a great senior portrait session. We started in my studio in Cary then moved to a local park for outdoor portraits. When we did, the light was so beautiful that most of our favorite senior portraits were the ones taken outdoors! Check out the images from his senior portrait session below!
