I love finding new spots to shoot that are amazing and unexpected and it’s a bonus when they are right in town! When Leah said that she loved nature and being outdoors I knew I wanted to find an awesome location for her session. While exploring with my kiddos, we found this outdoor nature preserve and the light was perfect and the field and trees were so pretty and rustic! I called Leah right away and was so excited she trusted me with finding her a location for her photos session.
Leah and her mom met me at my home studio to go over her outfit choices and have her makeup done. Her makeup turned out amazing! Thank you Bailey!
All these beautiful young ladies are so fun to watch get made up for their session. Professional make up application is included in most of my senior packages- not because these ladies aren’t gorgeous already- but because a professional can help to bring out their features, and because it’s best to go a little “heavier” on your make up for photos. A matte base will make you appear airbrushed- without being airbrushed! I always ask my make up artist to go a little heavier on the foundation and set with a matte powder- a nice coat of black mascara will help your eyes pop! Another reason why? Because it’s fun! Senior photos are a fun session, but it can be nerve-racking to be in front of the camera for up to 2 hours! I feel like these girls have a new confidence after having their make-up done and an un-rushed time of going over their outfit choices before we start taking photos. Leah picked awesome outfits that complemented her skin and hair. I love the dress in her field photos- again- choose something with movement! It will make your photos so interesting and less stiff and posed!
There’s still time to book a summery senior session! Don’t delay as my September calendar is filling quickly! If you are looking for updated family portraits- I am also booking Fall mini sessions for October and November. If you love the look of this location- I have good news! This is where I will be taking my Battle Creek Fall mini sessions on October 6!
