Urban Senior Portraits || Kim & Jaeda || September 2017
It's the end of September, and you know what that means! Yes, Autumn and Senior Portrait season! One of my favorite times of the year. Fun fact: the reason why I started to take photography more seriously was because of senior portraits! I was a senior myself 4 years ago, and I had a bunch of friends who needed their pictures taken for their yearbook photo. I started off with a few of my best friends, and from there I somehow did over 15 more senior portraits that same season! At that point, I basically fell in love with photography and portraiture.
Last weekend, I worked with my first senior clients of class 2018, Kim and Jaeda! Currently students from where I graduated High School, (Royal Pride!!) Kim reached out to me and said she wanted to do a creative city themed shoot! She was really inspired from my last session I had with Lyzelle M. in Seattle (Check out my last blog post about it here) so I decided to bring them to Downtown Seattle as well! We started off at Pioneer Square. At first I was a bit nervous because the whole summer I took a break from portrait work, and took several trips around the U.S. Although it was my first session in a while, I actually ended up loving the results! I also think this might have been one of my favorite shoots yet! It also helped that the girls were naturals at modeling! Last year I focused mostly on nature themed senior portraits, but I'm really diggin' this new city vibes theme I've been experimenting with!
As we drove from Pioneer Square to Capitol Hill, our GPS went completely INSANE. (tip: when you are driving on I-5 near DT Seattle, make sure to check the route before you make your way through because GPS always messes up and reroutes randomly making you completely confused -_- ... ) Thankfully we got there and also found a parking spot. Another favorite spot of mine, is a cute little hidden alley way in Cap Hill. I stumbled upon it during my search for some good ice cream during National Ice Cream Day, and found Kurt Farm Shop. If you think Molly Moon's Ice Cream is good, you need to try this place! All natural, and they sell some good cheese too, Hehe. Kim got some as a prop for the shoot, and she ended up loving it!
Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful day!
Enjoy some of my favorites from the shoot below:
