Emily | Senior Photographer, Pulaski, NY

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

The following senior session was a whirlwind right from the start. Emily contacted me and asked me to do her senior photos. I was hesitant to book anyone else because I knew I was falling behind, but she mentioned she didn't want "typical" senior photos and she wanted them to be "creative". There was NO way I was going to turn that down! A girl needs her creative outlets from time to time!

The day of the shoot I prayed for nice weather and for some inspiration. The session was only supposed to be a mini session due to lack of time, so I didn't get around to picking out props, etc... An hour before, I came up with a few ideas and set up in the woods behind my parents' house. Emily called and had gotten lost... she ended up getting to my house over a half hour late. I was freaking out because the sun was setting earlier and I was terrified we'd lose the sunlight. While we were in the woods the clouds covered the sun so I just prayed again and started shooting.

Seriously... God comes through even during small things like a photoshoot. From the minute I started shooting I KNEW this would be an amazing shoot. The sun came right back out and was perfect through the trees. Emily had numerous outfits with her, and she was a complete natural in front of the camera. She let me pose her any way I wanted and she let me place her anywhere, including on the dirty ground in her white pants. I just got so carried away with ideas before we knew it there was little light left in the woods. I was nervous that we had already missed the sunset for the field pictures. We came out of the woods as the entire sky was glowing orange. It was amazing. The best shoot of my life so far. I fell in love with it all over again as I began editing the photos.
