Here is some more senior awesomeness... :)
This beautiful lady has already graduated but I never got the chance to put her senior photos on my blog and show her off! I started photographing her 7 years ago (I think??) at a dance studio I do photography for in SWFL. We headed to a downtown area for her portraits...I think most downtown areas are great for seniors. Plenty of options..brick, old gates, pretty trees, and so on!
I always tell my high school seniors to bring whatever props they would like, dance shoes, car, basketball... Jessica brought family fun! Of course, I have to add some...
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,...
This couple made my job easy! Not only are they so incredible sweet together, they look like Barbie and Ken, but they were super comfortable posing in front of the camera for their engagement shoot.
I photographed them last month when I was back in Florida. We covered a lot of grounds in the River District of Fort Myers, FL capturing their engagement pictures. And we lucked out with some awesome natural lighting, thank you clouds! :)
It was hard to narrow down my favorites engagement photos to put up here, so warning..there's a lot!
Congratulations, Jianna and Matt...looking forward to your...
I finally got the results back from the competition I entered last month with my local photography guild back in Florida. I’ve enjoyed being a part of the local SWFL chapter (Professional Photographers of Southwest Florida) of the PPA and FPP for the past 4 or 5 years. This year I served as the Vice President and Program Director, but now with my move to Wyoming, I will be stepping down.
Being a part of this group has helped me in all areas of my photography business...but being a part of the competitions we held 3 times a year, definitely helped with me with my skill level. It also allowed...
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! ...
This was a beautiful and intimate wedding I photographed last week. Karly and Brandon tied the knot on Cove Beach at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa. And before they jumped onto the Sanibel Princess Cruise for their reception, we were able to go to some of my favorite spots on the property for some great bridal portraits!
Here's just a sneak peek of their day....
Congratulations Karly and Brandon! Happy Honeymooning!
Who would have thought that in the middle of a Florida summer you could have a really nice (not too humid) wedding on the beach?! This is exactly what we got for Katie and Nathan's day and despite the rainy week, we had a nice 2-3 hour window of no rain- all during the ceremony and picture time! Yay! So here is just a few photos from their wedding.
Congratulations Katie and Nathan! So excited for you and really hope you guys move down here one day! ;)
I love this family!!! Not only are they wonderful and sweet friends, but they are quite stylish and a blast to photograph! And it was the first shoot in a long time where I didn't have to dance around and act like a clown trying to get youngsters attention, haha. ;)
I told them I want to use their portraits as a great example of what you can wear. While not being too matchy-matchy, they coordinated well, each with their own personal style. Love it! Some food for thought as you start planning your holiday portrait session. Call me and we can discuss!
