Allison | Class of 2012

I don’t think I’ve ever met someone quite like Allison. From our first conversation I could tell she wasn’t your average teenager. She is sweet and soulful, seemingly wise beyond her years. I don’t know if it’s because she’s an artist or because it’s just who she is, but you can tell she looks at the world a little differently than everyone else. And when we met to shoot her senior portraits I could feel we were going to create something special.

Allison’s uncle is a working artist and his woodsy retreat was selected as the location for our shoot. Everything about it was magical. But the way Allison felt about the place (a piece of property with a rich family history) and how she interacted with it really gave these portraits a substance I hadn’t experience before with a senior portrait session. Her instinct was to be aware of the camera, but she couldn’t help but get caught up in the light and beauty of the surroundings. And it was in these moments that we created some of my favorite portraits of the day. I’m so grateful for the time I got to spend with this beautiful and incredible young woman. I can tell she is destined for great things…

I generally try to be very minimalist with my post-processing, but since this environment had a dramatic, dreamlike feel I wanted to push the editing on this last shot to create a more ethereal look. In fact, I usually pick one photo per session to experiment with in post. I don’t always show/deliver those photos to my clients, but I think it’s an important exercise for my growth and development as an artist as I work to clarify my personal style.
