Today I want you to meet Kate: she’s a determined, bubbly and positive young woman. I first met Kate as a Kindergartener so having the opportunity to take her senior photographs was a real honor!
At our pre-session meeting, Kate shared with me that she wanted a classic senior portrait look in a gorgeous natural environment. She hoped I would be able to capture something of the transition from the girl she is today to the young woman she will become.
Kate brought with her three outfits which mixed and matched so beautifully, the colors worked well. I had asked Kate to bring some hats. I persuaded her to wear a beanie with one of her outfits; that decision was a little different for her but I know she was really glad she tried it because the results are so pretty! Kate wanted to go for simplistic accessories so she only wore stud earrings and a necklace. This was completely the right choice as it reflected her style perfectly.
When Kate was asked whether she had any advice to offer others preparing for their senior pictures, this is what she had to share:
“Communicate what your vision is and what aspect of your life you want to bring out in the photos and Susie will have fantastic ideas! Choose outfits that you are comfortable and feel good in; it will give you confidence that will show in the pictures. Use Susie’s “MUAH” stylist, Dana, for your hair and makeup - she was amazing! She knew exactly what she was doing and she really listened to what I wanted. The result was gorgeous and perfect for the photos! Lastly don’t worry about posing; I was but Susie was really helpful in telling me what looks good and what I needed change to get natural results. The outcome was great!”
After high school, Kate is going to college. She’s not sure where that will be yet but I know she has some great choices already! She’s planning on studying business, so look out world, this future business woman is going to leave huge footprints!
Kate, keep being as amazing as you always have, as you step forward into the collegiate world and beyond!
Tons of hugs, Susie x
