Big Congratulations, Zach! Soon to be a graduate, Class of '23!!
This was our SUNRISE Senior Photography Session last summer!
I'm so grateful for your willingness to make this happen this early - we had the baseball field all to ourselves -
and the sunlight was gorgeous:
Zach's Dad, Dan, played catcher & fed me great input for fun baseball shots!!
Zach's mom, Elaine, likes to plan ahead :) I am so happy that she discovered my little photography biz
and booked Zach's session a year in advance :)
As last summer approached, we refined Zach's booking beautifully
into his busy summer work and baseball schedule.
My friend Jo assisted, making video clips (see Session Movie at end of post) and a variety of photography angles :)
We are thankful for Tiffany Blake for Zach's family's hair styling
and Kelli Strok Makeup for Elaine, because we made family portraits as part of Zach's session :)
Tiffany & Kelli both arrived at Zach's family's home before 6am!
We liked this old painted & rusty metal background, I think it is interesting & it matches Zach's eyes :)
This forest is a place Zach knows well.
The trails are a common terrain for his cross country team, and close enough to his own home that he runs here often.
I love combining a more casual look with a dressier look, so a sport jacket on the trails was perfect :)
Our Session Movie :)
Zach's family chose a Signature Album with a brushed metal cover image.
We used an artsy black and white on the cover :)
We made several drafts, customized for Zach.
The day that Zach's mom, Elaine, received her Signature Album, she texted me:
"Thanks again, Jeannine. The book is exceptional and exceeded our expectations!"
Zach and Family, thank you for trusting me with your Senior Portraits!! I'm thankful for you :)
