I’m really trying to stick to this Photo Tips on Tuesday commitment that I declared with my new site design a few weeks ago. I’m starting this post at 11:51pm on a Tuesday night, so though this won’t publish til the next day, I started on a Tuesday, so that counts for something, right? {And, I’m going to back post so it will LOOK like Tuesday!}  And the photo tip is….senior picture posing ideas!

I had the opportunity to take some beautiful senior pictures of Kate tonight. I think I met her when she was 5, but I don’t get to see her too often, as she lives in our old neighborhood. Her mom was a great supporter of my new hobby back in the day, and let me experiment with my camera on her kids, quite a few times. I’m grateful to her for that support back then.

Kate made a guest appearance last year, though as Elsa for my daughter’s FROZEN birthday party, and I’ve been trying to help her get a blog started in the past year, too. Watch out world, Kate is coming your way!  I wanted to give her a bit of a sneak peek on her senior pictures, so I chose a handful of my favorites to share here.  In case anyone is confused, it’s a senior in high school pictures, also know as TEEN pictures, not of the senior citizen variety. I used to take a lot more teen portraits, but with my semi-retirement in people picture taking, I felt a tad bit rusty tonight. Luckily, Kate was VERY patient with me!

I wish this last one weren’t so small on account of being horizontal…I simply love the feel of it. Inspired by these family photos I snapped nearly 5 years ago in this same spot.

  1. Great job and a beautiful model! It would be hard to choose a favourite. The splashing one is really fun, but some of the more serious close-ups are lovely. I liked the colours she wore as well.

  2. Oh wow, these are terrific! I love the railroad one and the one directly underneath it. She’s a lovely girl and you made her look amazing.

      Thank you! I love hearing favorites, thanks for sharing! The railroad tracks are always fun to use for the teenagers.

    Long time, no comment. Sorry. I’ve always tried to comment bit I had a baby and haven’t been online much in the last couple months.

    I think these photos are beautiful! I love the first one and the one on the stairs. The water one is fun and playful!

  4. Thanks for the information and the wonderful post, your pictures turned out amazing as always. I’ve been doing some research into how to reach the market of high school seniors. This is a borderline age where sometimes the parents are still making the decisions and sometimes the kid gets to make the decisions. Marketing needs to be aimed at both so that which ever person is making the choice can choose you. Thanks for your help.
