NOW SEEKING Class of 2011 Senior Reps!

Class of 2011 Seniors: now’s your chance! We’re looking for a few warm-hearted, fun, and outgoing students to work with us as senior representatives for the coming school year. If that sounds like it might be you, keep reading!

How does it work?
We do your consultation and senior portrait shoot free of charge, so you’ll get excited about your photos before you even start repping. You’ll get a full session, and we’ll talk about any styles, ideas, or hobbies you want to bring in, to make the shoot your own. After the session, you’ll also receive a personalized proof book with a selection of your favorite images.

After your session, all you need to do is recommend us to your friends and classmates! Show off your proof book at school, share your favorite shots on your Facebook or MySpace, just get the word out, and we’ll take it from there. We’ll set you up with handouts and cards, so you can give them the details they need. Each Class of 2011 Senior who books with us will receive a bonus print credit because you sent them to us, and you’ll earn your choice of rewards, including prints, digital copies, albums, and more.

Sounds awesome! How do I get started?
Just contact us by phone or e-mail, and let us know what school you go to. If we have an opening for a new rep at your school, we’ll help you get the ball rolling.

Seeing a Different Shade – senior portrait photography in Portland, OR

We’ve been busy working through holiday print orders, but we finally have a few minutes to share another of our senior portrait sessions. Olivia is an intelligent, thoughtful, and artistically-minded girl, and she wasn’t exactly accustomed to having her photo taken, when she came to us! It can feel feel pretty unusual at first, when you’re suddenly the focus of a 2+-hour photoshoot, but we got her feeling comfortable and her personality began to poke through.

Starting with natural light and a casual outfit made for a great way to warm up–a lot of her favorite shots and ours came from the first set! Then, we moved towards a softer feel with a romantic thrifted blouse and window light. Finally, we had Sabrina Cayne there to lend us a hand with creating a glamorous dress look that Olivia’s mom requested! But, it wasn’t long before we added a book into the scene, so Olivia could pose with it and show a little more of what she’s about. We had fun exploring with her, and her family and friends will definitely be seeing a different side of her… but one that’s still true to her. 🙂

A Bit of Urban Grit – senior portrait photography in Portland, OR

We were watching the weather forecast like crazy, in the few days leading up to our session with Cassidy. She was interested in photos that showed a bit of color and a lot of cool, industrial character, so we knew an outdoor session was just the right fit. The weather that day was overcast, and a little colder than we’d have liked, but the rain stayed away long enough for us to get together and roam the Eastbank area in SouthEast Portland, and even make it down to the Esplanade.

Cassidy’s a senior at Vancouver School of Arts and Academics, so it wasn’t a big surprise to hear that she’s also interested in photography! We can’t help but feel a little extra-special when someone who loves photography chooses to work with us, and we’re really glad we could give her an excellent senior session.

Friends with Horses – senior portrait photography in Portland, OR

After working with Melissa on her professional headshots, we were jazzed to hear from her again, when her daughter Madeline needed senior portraits. And we were even more intrigued when we heard Madeline’s request for the session: we’d be shooting at a horse farm!

Madeline has a fair bit of experience in the saddle, so we met with her at the farm, just outside of Beaverton, and she did her session with one of the horses (named Go) she rides most. It was a cold and cloudy day, and we didn’t want to frighten the horse with any flashes, but we still caught a nice variety of shots, and some really cute and genuine moments between her and Go.

The Many Faces of Crystal – senior portrait photography in Portland, OR

We had a great senior portrait session recently with Crystal, and Portland was lucky to get those few extra weeks of summer, because the weather couldn’t have been better that day. Crystal was looking for images with bright colors, so our first stop was a bed of flowers near our studio, and then we headed over to the Rose Test Garden at Washington Park to play with the roses.

Crystal’s an expressive individual, so we did several outfit changes, and tried on a range of moods, from cheerful to dramatic. Her mom was also there to lend plenty of support, carrying extra tops, fixing lipstick and even holding the occasional reflector for us. Working with the two of them made for a relaxing Saturday afternoon, and we’re all loving the results!

Meet Antonio – senior portrait photography in Portland, OR

Say hello to one of our awesome senior reps for the Class of 2010! Antonio wanted to explore a few different styles, so our session with him began with a fashion-inspired black-and-white shot in the studio, and then we moved onto two different locations in Southeast Portland for a more relaxed and friendly style of shooting.

We also had the unfortunate luck of scheduling Antonio’s session during what turned out to be THE hottest week of the summer! But, we didn’t hear any complaints from him: he had a great time during our shoot, and was all smiles and energy, in spite of the 100+ degree weather. He’s an absolute trooper, and we know he’ll do a great job representing us with his classmates.

Creative portraits

Not everyone likes to do the old “smile and say cheese” thing, and we’re always listening for that: if it’s not who you are, then why shoot it? People often have a lot more fun with photos that show a little spontaneity, or that might be more artsy and dramatic.

Here’s a senior portrait that’s more towards the dramatic, with a soft and contemplative feel. We can always bring a touch of your own style and personality into your portraits, whether you’re a senior, a couple, or a family, and our rates are easy to work with, too.

Senior Portrait Locations

When we’re thinking about how to put a more personal spin on a portrait, we sometimes have to get creative with locations. Places you might not find terribly interesting at first can actually make for a great photo.

Take this senior portrait, for instance: you’d think it was a local park, or perhaps a skillfully decorated courtyard, but would you believe this was taken at a garden supply store? James and his family suggested the location for his shoot, and it certainly made for an interesting variety of photos.

When you work with us, don’t ever be afraid to make a suggestion, even if you think it might sound kooky. If it helps us bring out a little more of who you are, it’s worth pursuing!
