I love blogging my sessions. It allows me to relive the session and tell all of my friends/family/followers all about the wonderful people I meet!
This is the second time I have had Bailey behind my lens. I first met Bailey when we did family pictures a few years ago and then I did pictures for her step brother last summer! I have come to know and love this family very much. They are mellow, easy going and so nice! They have also introduced me to several of their friends and they are awesome too, so I know they keep good company!
The weather was a little threatening for our session, but we pushed through it and the lighting was great! We went to the Lakewood Heritage Center and it continues to be one of my favorite places to do pictures. There is so much variety there!
This dark red barn is one of my favorites…..especially for my Chatfield Senior High kids!
Bailey’s outfit for these pictures was my favorite. I love the clean white skirt and the blue flowered shirt. And it looked so cool against those ominous skies.
During the middle of our session, we had some rain. Thankfully there were some covered porches and we were still able to get some pictures. Add some sunflowers for some sun on a rainy day, right!?
And when the rain let up a bit, we got some really cute umbrella pictures. A clear umbrella is a must-own for all photographers and mine lives in the back of my car just for times like these.
Rain really does make for some cute pictures!!
Bailey is going to be playing college lacrosse for the Fresno State Bulldogs next year.
Melissa (Bailey’s mom) thought it would be fun to show all of the jerseys she has worn over the years throughout her lacrosse years. I love how this picture turned out. Right after we took this picture, we were REALLY close to a lighting strike. It scared the life out of me. We quickly hightailed it to the car so we could go to another location that is a few parking lots away.
We had to sit out one of the craziest storms. Luckily we didn’t get any hail but other parts of the Metro area got some seriously damaging hail. Thankfully, we live in Colorado and as they always say “if you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes and it will change”. It actually took 15-20 minutes, but the rain stopped and the sun came out a bit for a beautiful sunset.
It was pretty dark outside when we took these pictures but thankfully my I know my camera settings well (post-processing helps too) and I was able to make it work! Melissa even commented when she saw the pictures that she couldn’t believe that I was able to get pictures at all. And she even said she should have taken my photography class so she could learn how to do that. I am going to have another class this winter so let me know if you are interested in being able to take pictures in any lighting situation!!
Last but not least. Getting a picture of each senior with their mom (or dad, whoever comes to the session with them) is high on my to-do list at a senior session. They usually end up being my favorite from the session!! Aren’t these two so cute together?
Good luck on your senior year Bailey! And I can’t wait to hear how the Bulldogs do in their 2019-2020 season!
