    Besides this senior portrait in the hat, which was one of the first few we took and one of my all time favorite senior portraits, Sydney’s senior portrait session was one of those where every portrait seemed to come out better than the portrait just before! She was really comfortable in front of the camera and didn’t need any direction on posing natural. Her confidence, perhaps from being an athlete, was shining throughout the senior portrait session! Look below to see more of her wonderful senior portraits!

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Sam

    May 18 | Evan | No Comments |

    Sam, another athlete from Cary Academy, came across so confident and relaxed in his senior portrait session. Maybe it was because his older brother, a previous high school senior I took portraits of gave him a little advice! Whatever the case, Sam was a natural in front the camera and it was not hard to get natural looking senior portraits from the session.

    Raleigh Senior Portrait Session | Richard

    May 16 | Evan | No Comments |

    For Richard’s high school senior portraits we went to downtown Raleigh. While I know it wasn’t his preferred way to spend the little free time he has, Richard did a great job to help his senior portraits come out looking natural. It was easy to tell that he was comfortable shortly after we started the senior portrait session because his portraits and posing started looking more and more natural. Check out more of Richard’s senior portraits below:

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Noelia

    I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Noelia and her family since working together with her mom to try and help those in Northern Japan that were devastated by the 2011 Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. Thankfully, on this portrait session, it was only about celebrating Noelia’s last year of high school and coming away with some great senior portraits for her and her family! As the senior portrait session went along, I could see Noelia’s confidence growing and her portraits started coming out more and more natural. Overall a lot of fun another great senior portrait session were the next portrait taken kept seeming to be even better than the previous portrait!

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Martin

    May 14 | Evan | No Comments |

    There are some high school seniors that are so comfortable in front of the camera it’s really impressive! Martin certainly fits into that category. He reminded me of another high school senior portrait session, because of his confidence but still very humble and always respectful when I see him at Cary Academy. While I’m sure taking senior portraits wouldn’t be his ideal choice for the limited free time he has, I think he had fun by the end of the senior portrait session and ended up liking the way his senior portraits came out!

    Hannah was another high school senior that I could tell from the start was super excited her senior portrait session in Raleigh. Hannah picked out two great locations for her senior portraits and was eager to include important parts of her musical and athletic sides as well. I not sure how she wasn’t exhausted by the end of the senior portrait session, or maybe she was just great at hiding it until the end, but we got great portraits from the start to the end of her high school senior portrait session!

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Colin

    May 09 | Evan | No Comments |

    Colin’s senior portrait session was one of the first ones of the class of 2015 and like most days in Cary during the middle/late July, the weather was hot! Colin was still able to stay cool throughout the session allowing us to get some great senior portraits. While we didn’t do anything with it for his senior portrait session, Colin is a good tennis player so I’ve seen him play a bit over the years and it was really nice to see his personality and meeting his parents off the court. It was fun time and wonderful senior portrait session… even with the hot North Carolina weather!

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Cole

    May 09 | Evan | No Comments |

    We took Cole’s high school senior portraits in Cary in the Lochmere area and tennis courts. I love taking portraits on places like tennis courts and tracks where we can use some of the great lines and feel from the sport, without having the senior portraits in athletic clothes. I tend to like mixing things that don’t normally go together, for example, a button up shirt on the tennis court! The senior portraits, both on and off the tennis court, came out great, mostly thanks to Cole’s easy going and confident personality! Check out his senior portraits below:

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Charlie

    May 08 | Evan | No Comments |

    Usually I blog about the senior portraits in the order the senior portrait sessions occur, but if you couldn’t tell so far, for the 2015 seniors I decided to post them in alphabetical order. No real reason! Anyway, next up is Charlie, another Cary Academy high school senior in the class of 2015 that was extremely comfortable in front of the camera. We took Charlie’s senior portraits at Prestonwood Golf Club in Cary, which makes for a fantastic backdrop for any kind of portraits, especially senior portraits! Charlie didn’t need much time adjusting to being in front of the camera which led us to create some great senior portraits for him and his family.

    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!

    Raleigh Senior Portrait | Bobby

    May 04 | Evan | No Comments |

    Bobby’s senior portrait session reminded me of my own senior portraits from a while back! I could tell that like me, taking portraits wasn’t exactly Bobby’s preferred activity of choice during his spare time, but he was happy to allow me to take some senior portraits to make mom happy! As you can see from the portraits, Bobby was natural in front the camera and not sure he would admit it, but seemed to have fun by the end of the senior portrait session!

    Cary Senior Portrait | Alex U

    May 03 | Evan | No Comments |

    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

    May 03 | Evan | No Comments |

    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!

    Cary Senior Portrait Photographer | Jasmine

    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!
