Basketball and Smoke Bombs?

What do basketball and smoke bombs have in common? They are just a couple of the wild and crazy ideas our 2017 Seniors did for their portraits.

Over the next few weeks, our 2017 Senior class will be graduating and it’s bittersweet watching these kids, some that we’ve been photographing since they were born, leave home and head to college. It’s been a privilege to be part of their lives and create photographs of them as babies, toddlers, teens, and now young adults. I always enjoy looking back at senior portraits and think of how great it was to be a part of their transition. Seeing your children grow into who they want to be is an amazing experience.

Now, we begin looking at the rising 2018 Senior class as they think about what they would like to do to remember their senior year in photographs. These portraits showcase the personality and characteristics that make that senior who they are. Taking unique, fun senior portraits is not only a blast, it creates and holds memories of this final year of high school, for the parents and the senior that neither will forget. With that being said, I thought I’d share portraits from just a few of the seniors I’ve photographed this year.

Haille wanted to stand out and had an idea to use colorful smoke bombs for her senior portraits. It was an interesting process, to say the least. Haille is a senior at Baylor, and we have had the pleasure to photograph her since she was a little girl. Mom and Dad definitely loved these photographs and we did too!

Elliot wanted to do something patriotic for his senior portraits so we designed this look for him. Elliot is a senior at Boyd-Buchanan and since he is the second senior in his family, we made sure his photographs represented his style and personality and were not the same as those of his older brother.

Rileigh’s senior portraits really showed off her personality and hobbies! This image was taken in the pottery building at Baylor School. Rileigh has also been featured on the blog before, with portraits taken on the river at Baylor School.

Claire is a senior at GPS and was excited to take her portraits in the fall because of the beautiful colors. We have photographed Claire since she was a toddler, so it’s been wonderful to watch her grow up.

Braden is a senior at McCallie and was looking forward to showing off his favorite sport in his portraits. Taking this senior portrait from the top of a 16′ ladder proved to be fun for me, but scary for my assistant! Although, it certainly turned out well, wouldn’t you agree?

When we were planning out Leigh Anne’s senior session we decided to do some portraits on the Walnut Street Bridge. It just says Chattanooga and at the same time is a sassy and contemporary portrait of this Baylor senior. 

Congratulations to all our seniors on their wonderful achievements and well wishes on their upcoming adventures!

Everyone Loves a Bunny

This morning after we were finished with the portraits of mom and dad, my assistant went and brought our pet bunny, Stardust, outside. During the session, she had promised Maddy that she could pet Stardust if she did…. Although this wasn’t planned, I, of course, had to take a couple photographs as Maddy was being so sweet to the bunny. Kids love playing with him and he certainly loves the attention! He’s spoiled sometimes… Taking portraits with animals is always a fun time, especially for the kids. Thanks mom and dad!

Maddy wasn’t the only one that had impromptu portraits with our bunny Stardust. Boyd got the biggest kick out of the bunny and we were so impressed at how gentle he was when he petted Stardust. Stardust was so well-behaved with the little ones, but when we wanted to do photographs of him and Sydney, he put on his demon ears.  Helen spent most of the time chasing after him and Sydney enjoyed watching her mom crawl behind the bushes to catch him – over and over and over.Happy Spring!

Thoughtful Expressions

Yesterday evening we ended a busy week with a session of two children I have had a lot of fun with over the years. I told this young man I want a serious thoughtful expression. Knew I had the image when I took it. Love the symbolism of the path before him. A teaser for mom!
