Kate {a senior session} - Columbia, MO photography

seniorkate01
You gotta love a girl who shows up for her senior session in jeans, a t-shirt, worn sneakers and a pair of cool shades...AND NOTHING ELSE. No change of outfit, no touch-up makeup, no accessories, NO NOTHIN! This no-nonsense girl is my fabulous niece, Kate, who traveled almost three hours for me to photograph her senior session this past weekend. We had a great time roaming The District and parts of the MU campus. My primary focus was on creating environmental portraits--ones that would use setting, light and emotion to tell the story of her personality. It's basically my way of blending my documentary style with some creative portraiture. And frankly, I think these images are a pretty spot-on reflection of this young lady.

Kate, you were a natural in front of the camera. Hope you and your family enjoy the images!

**DISCLAIMER: I'm not a senior portrait photographer. Traditionally I don't offer or photograph senior sessions because my focus is on documentary imagery. However, when it comes to family, there's always an exception to the rule :)

Lots of Apples

A few weeks ago I spent a pleasant afternoon at my friend Emma's house preparing homemade apple juice and apple sauce. Another friend, Jen, was also there and the three of us peeled and peeled and peeled what seemed like bucket after bucket of organic apples from Emma and Scott's tree. I brought my camera along and thought I'd share some detail photos from that afternoon.

I'm actually heading back to Emma and Scott's house tomorrow afternoon for a documentary family session. Please check the blog in a week or so to see my favorite images from that session. Below are a few pics I snagged of Emma with baby daughter, Lula, and son, Avery, during our apple extravaganza. I can't wait to photograph more of their family tomorrow!
