A beautiful spring afternoon and a gorgeous high school senior. What a great combination! We had a great time photographing Caroline for her Senior Portrait Session this past Friday. The first stop on our tour of the city started out in the New Orleans Arts District. So much culture and history made this a perfect spot to get the creative juices flowing. It didn’t take long to realize how easy this young lady was to work with. She was relaxed, yet confident and focused. Her ability to create a variety of facial expressions from intense and seductive, to relaxed and carefree, was impressive. A simple word or two and she would deliver striking poses like a pro. With so many interesting nooks and crannies, it was easy to find excellent backdrops to compliment her outfits and accentuate her beauty. After wrapping up in the area formerly known as the Warehouse District, we made a brief stop in the French Quarter for a few additional images. Finally, we headed to City Park to finish out the session. We arrived just as the sun dropped low in the sky, casting wonderful light on the moss strewn Oak Trees in the park. It was the prefect place to round out a fun filled afternoon of photography. Caroline will soon be graduating from Mount Carmel and then it’s off to the University of Alabama. We offer our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes for continued success to this amazing young lady.
Senior Portrait Session – Bayou Sauvage. As an avid outdoorsman, we decided on a wandering wooden pathway in Bayou Sauvage for Dougie’s senior pictures. Like many young men, he was initially a reluctant participant for his senior portrait session. It didn’t take long before we had him laughing and relaxed and then he turned on the charm. One of his passions is hunting and he brought along a shotgun. Since guns and wildlife refuge’s don’t mix well, we moved on to a different location for a few more images. We figured it was best to let the game wardens and sheriff’s’ deputies focus their efforts elsewhere. I must admit, posing him with graduation garb and a shotgun made for some interesting images. Best wishes to Dougie for a future filled with success and joy.
