On Saturday I had my first senior portrait session of the summer. Kayla's actually graduating this year (2011) not next, but she needed senior portraits done, so I was glad to help! She's a cool kid who likes zombies and is going to go to school to be a chef. Because Kayla's so awesome and she and her mom were so prompt in coming to review the photos from our session, I let her pick which would go on the blog. So here ya go, Kayla! Facebook away!
Her cat, Tigger, is huge compared to my two little kitties. I swear he was almost as big as Kayla and it was pretty adorable. This shot is the only one like it and everyone (everyone being Kayla, her mom and myself) thinks it just awesome.
We also did some chef portraits in the studio. Kayla and I were getting along pretty well because we seem to have a similar sense of humor and she ended up "executing" a stuffed cow she brought along to the shoot and then serving him up on a giant spatula. So horrible, yet so very funny.
After all that ridiculousness, we went to the park for some outdoor shots. What we didn't realize was that there was a Relay for Life benefit or some such thing going on, so decided against our original plan of bringing her fake gravestone and zombie head along with us. It might have scared the hundreds of people who aren't normally there. So instead we did some pretty normal shots, as well as a few variations on an idea she had gotten from a book cover.
I LOVE the tree/leaf idea; it turned out so well. You did great, Kayla.
