Senior portrait season is well underway, and though I’m absolutely horrible at sharing photos on this blog or social media, I’ll try again and see if this year I can actually share many of the great teens I have been having the pleasure of photographing this summer.
First up is Addie, a senior at St. Dom’s in Auburn. Addie has really impressed me — she’s so well-rounded, she’s who I wish I had been as a teenager. (And I wish I were more like her now!) She’s got brains (the book-smart kind and the practical kind), beauty, compassion, athletic ability, a sense of humor, she’s a go-getter and she’s not afraid to try new things.
Her hobbies include sports (hockey, soccer and lacrosse), robotics, reading, pottery, photography, and I’m sure more that I’m forgetting, or that she’s added since her session. This girl isn’t one to sit around and wait for things to happen.
Scroll on to see more favorites from our session. Hair and makeup is by Allie Roberge of Tagli Salon.
Thanks for a great session and your great attitude, Addie!
One of my favorite senior sessions this year has been with Kaisa, a senior at Oxford Hills. We started at the studio with hair and makeup by Allie Roberge of Tagli Salon.
We did some photos outside as the skies got cloudier, then we headed to a special location near their house.
Shortly after we left the studio, the rain started. We drove through rain the whole half hour to our destination, but as we turned down the narrow country road leading to the photo spot, the rain stopped and the sun came out. The timing couldn’t have been better.
The location for these photos was spectacular — A private property with a field overlooking fantastic mountain views, a barn and wooden fence, gazebo, pond… everything one could ask for.
And of course my favorite part of the session — when Kaisa’s dog, Leo, made a guest appearance. I just love these.
Kaisa’s mom describes her as outgoing with a sarcastic sense of humor, friendly and happy.
She plans on going into the medical field but isn’t sure just what she wants to do yet. She loves to wear dresses, but you’ll most often find her wearing her Birkenstocks with them.
Thanks for a great time, Kaisa and Kathy (and Leo)!
Thanks for bringing me to such a wonderful location, and for being willing to stay out in the light rain at the end.
AND I’m excited that I get to photograph Kaisa’s brother’s wedding next year, at the same great private property!
