About the Shoot
We met with Emma and it became apparent that she was not the typical senior wanting the same type of pictures as her friends. She is an athletic, outdoorsy kind of girl who wanted shots that had meaning to her. We spent a beautiful evening traipsing through alleys in downtown and the woods behind a local college to get her perfect shots.
Joey’s Photo Tip
Don’t be afraid to get your hands (or in this case, feet) dirty! By taking the time to find out Emma’s specific desires for her senior pictures, we found out that she liked to run specific trails and would often return to these trails to think. These trails were part of her life! As soon as we got to spots that had meaning to her, her face lit up in a way it had not during the rest of the shoot. She was in her element. So while the shoot was off the beaten path, we lugged our equipment through mud and down some damp alleys to get some amazing shots. By finding out about the client’s life beforehand, we are able to include meaningful aspects into the shoot. By going the extra mile-literally-we got pictures that the client loves and that we are sure to sell. It was extra time well worth it for both the client and us!
