Welcoming Back Senior Sessions

Senior sessions are one of my favorite things to shoot!  Now is the time to book for last-minute 2019 seniors and to start booking summer dates for 2020 seniors.

Here is a peek at a double senior session I did last fall of my daughter and my friend’s son in my friend’s town of Sullivan, MO.

 

 

They had some great spots for capturing some wonderful images.  Luckily, we have beautiful parks and places like St. Charles Main Street for historic building backdrops around here that make for amazing pictures as well, as seen in the additional senior portraits here.

The End of Senior Summer

Grace’s senior session rounded out the summer for me. I loved all the senior girls I got to photograph this summer, but Grace’s session in particular really swept me away because there were so many great spots that captured her natural beauty.

As the kids are heading back to school at this time, things are winding down at Offshoots Photography for the season since I take this time off to keep up with the busy school schedules of my own children.

I do have a special double senior shoot planned this fall, however, with my daughter and the son of a good friend of mine, so be on the look out for that.

Otherwise, I will open booking dates back up in spring of 2019. Can’t wait to see you then!

Cooling Down

The dog days of summer were upon us as mid-July hit, so we headed to the creek for some cooling off during this senior session!

I’ve got one more session on deck for the summer and then it is back to school time and I will be taking a break. Be on the look out for Grace’s senior session coming up next!

Senior Summer

It is the summer of seniors for me as many of my sessions are of high school seniors and I am loving it! Seniors are very fun for me to photograph because they are great at modeling and they are patient and cooperative and want to look their best. So far, the seniors I have photographed have been open to all my ideas and suggestions, too!

Here’s a recent session with Sarah. She chose a more urban setting amidst old buildings and a set of train tracks. Dressed in a casual outfit of jeans and a cute blue top, I think these portraits turned out wonderful!

Sarah then changed into a dressier outfit for some beautiful shots in the garden.

Lastly, I think it’s always fun to see the black and white versions of the images. Until next time…

How They Love Their Candids

I had the pleasure of photographing two best friends, and to my surprise they wanted twice as many candid shots as posed ones.  How fun that was!  First, here are a couple of cute poses we got in.

 

But, the majority of the shots were of them doing what they do together: talking, laughing, hanging out, telling stories, and just being there for one another.

What an amazing thing to witness!
