Welcome August! It’s hard to believe it is time for Back to School. Although I must say, I’m not quite ready for summer to go…while it is hot, I have thoroughly enjoyed all the summer outside activities with my kiddos.
So for about a month now I’ve been working on getting a new website up, which is why for now when you type in www.alisonbeyerphotography.com, it comes here to my blog. So just a heads up! Bear with me while I work on it (I’m not very website tech savvy!).
In the meantime, here’s some senior portraits taken of Ashley, class of 2019. This young lady was such a good sport,...
Preparing for Senior Portraits:
There are lots of lists and tips out there but here are a few things I recommend, as you get ready to have your senior portraits taken.
Find a Photographer. First things first, you need to find the right photographer for YOU! I definitely know my style isn’t for everyone, so it is important you check around and see what you like best. Ask to see the images of an entire senior session (not just the one photo that is on display). It’s also important that you are comfortable with your photographer, someone who puts you at ease. I remember when I was having...
It's crazy we are already in full swing for our 2015 senior graduates...wow, 2015! Time just keeps flying!
Caleb graduated last year and for his senior photos we did a little variety in our location. I love taking senior photos in a downtown/urban setting because of all the variety it provides...cool old and new buildings, pillars, water, colorful storefronts, etc. Then to end our shoot, we went back to my studio and took a few more. This first photo of him in his football jersey (B&W) is my favorite!
Enjoy these photos as you start getting some ideas for your own senior pictures! ...
I have that itch again (not from a fire ant!)...I'm ready to go on a trip and explore! I'm currently sitting at my computer editing and retouching projects and off to the side I have my husband's laptop with Pinterest up while I search for photos of where to go next. :) I've already calculated the cost and when would be the cheapest time to fly, the big question is where...? Not really where I want to go, because I want to go everywhere, but where can I convince my husband we should go? ;) He takes a lot of convincing, so I've taken to texting him photos everyday of various options.
Senior season is in full swing! We took Samantha's portraits a little while back and what a perfect model with an amazing smile (I'm super envious of her dimple!!). We covered a good bit of downtown Fort Myers, which always makes for a great backdrop. And I even convinced her to pick a dance pose in the middle of the street, such a great sport. ;)
It is graduation season! And as we are gearing up for the summer of photographing the next year's class graduates, we're also finishing orders and books for this year's seniors. We did Jenny's photos on Sanibel Island, a beautiful beach session. She brought along a variety of great outfits, from casual cowboy hat to prom dress. Loved it! We also lucked out with a pretty amazing sunset! Congratulations Jenny!
Kaylee has been my little advertiser! She's been so sweet to pass my name along to her friends. I was so excited with all her fun ideas that she wanted to do for her senior photos. She told me she wanted really different locations, which sent me on a hunt for some new sites! I loved her balloon idea, such a fun prop. Kaylee is definitely a fun-loving, full of life, sweet young lady!
Chelsea was such a sweetheart! While vacationing down here, I had the opportunity to do her senior photos at Bowditch Beach (one of my favorite beaches). And despite a bit of rain, we ended up having perfect, soft lighting.
Keith is one of the very few who has a great "serious" expression. What do I mean? He doesn't look like he's gonna kill someone if he's not smiling, he looks pleasant! It was great to do some senior studio portraits with him as well as go to the beach.
