Last fall was packed with gorgeous senior sessions, including this Waubonsie Valley High School senior. We had a great day roaming this beautiful location. I’m so glad they chose Firefly Nights Photography as their Naperville senior photographer. And unlike the previous day, it wasn’t nearly as windy, so we were able to use my light to create these beautiful portraits.
You can have a simple field of tall grass, but man, when you have the perfect lighting, you can get a killer image. I think she is simply stunning here. Just breathtaking.
And while she was stunning without a smile, her real nature was sweet and smiley.
She looks like a collegiate model for an ivy league school. Love the boots with leggings. I wonder what fashion awaits me for next year’s seniors.
Then it was time for an outfit change. And, again, she gave me a serious expression, and her mom and I were wow’d. When they made their selection of images, this girl felt awkward about the serious ones, those her mom and I loved them. She wasn’t used to seeing herself not smiling. But it is great to get variety.
Don’t worry, she was back to smiling most of the time. Love this one on this pretty bridge.
As we were walking back, we stumbled across this little rock path through these grasses. It’s crazy that I’d been to this location countless times before and had never noticed this before. And it’s neat that by just adding a scarf, it’s like a whole new outfit.
If you have a 2019 senior, it is time to be thinking about senior portraits! Don’t wait too long to get scheduled. Summer is a great time while the kids are out of school, so we can do weekdays. But remember that I like to have brief in-person consultations with seniors, so we can be on the same page.
