Senior pictures are special (to state the absolute obvious) so we do a lot of preparation prior to our shoots. I had photographed senior portraits for Izzy's brother Jacob a couple years back and now that it was her turn -- we really wanted to bring it. Spoiler alert -- Izzy's sport is swimming (forgive me...it's Saturday, super sunny outside and clearly I'm feeling a little silly) The finished portrait had to showcase her strength, beauty and dedication to swimming so of course I did what every good photographer does... Googled GQ, Sports Illustrated and Vogue Magazine for inspiration. As you probably know, they have done spectacular features with Olympic and professional athletes but when all was said and done it was Izzy herself that brought the most perfect inspiration - herself.
We brought our Class of 2018 Brand Ambassador Model Team together for a beach chic photo shoot to kick off Summer and the Class of 2018 Senior year in style.
The video from the fabulous shoot shows the models playing on sand and surf on one of the most beautiful Eastside evenings on Lake Sammamish.
This is your official notice that it's time to schedule your Summer Senior Pictures. The best times and dates go quickly (or course) so be sure to check out out www.StudioBseniors.com for details, inspiration and booking!
We are absolutely in love with Karsyn's fun, fierce and fabulous style. Her chic blue dress was the definition of modern simplicity but the University Prep basketball star had a winning pre-session strategy and we knew you'd want the details for how she scored perfect senior pictures.
For all of our senior girls inspired to create something equally amazing, be sure to take a page from Karsyn's play book remembering these 3 Great Senior Pictures Tips:
1. Dress head to to for the most posing options that will have you feeling confident in full length, three quarters and close up portraits. Consider bra straps, shoe selection and everything in between.
2. We always recommend camera ready hair and make-up with out style team but you will also want to remember to moisturize and prep all skin for a gorgeous camera ready glow. (arms, legs and anything that will be on display)
3. Don't forget your nails - whether neutral or bold, you never know when they might make the frame so polish and/or buff without apology.
We're continuing our celebration of all things glam here at the studio and nobody does it better than Sydni from Bellevue High School. The Class of 2018 beauty brought her fabulous red dress and we of course are thrilled to bring you the behind the scenes video for your viewing pleasure.
We are booking so many Summer Seniors right now and if each one would dress up fancy schmancy... (yes, I said "schmancy") my dreams would be complete. Bring on the formals! For more "Vanity Fair Magazine" inspired images, be sure to check out our Senior portfolio.
Gotta love when a spontaneous photo shoot breaks out during a kick off meeting with our new Class of 2018 Model Brand Ambassador team! In addition to making new friends, the models are learning all things branding, business, social media marketing and so much more. We love that they are gaining confidence and getting creative with each new challenge that we present!
The footage was so cute that we just had to share this super fun video!
We had the pleasure of photographing style super star Godfried Addae for 425 Business Magazine. His advice for nailing a warm-weather business casual look for men has us running not walking to get our fellas ready for Summer days at the office.
During an editorial shoot, the session is very collaborative. We're just playing and trying a variety of things that will best showcase both the subject and the styling.. What can we say about Godfried? ...This gentleman is magic on camera! Loved these two shots that didn't make the printed edition and just had to share!
Oh my gosh, when they are SO cute that I can barely get to my camera fast enough -- this is what you get! The brothers arrived styled by their Mama head to toe in one of my favorite guilty pleasures for kids - Janie & Jack
Hudson and Gavin were quite the conversationalist and a little bit comedian all rolled into one big bundle of photo shoot fun. Right below here is one of my all time favorites as they were checking with Mom (who is just off camera) letting her know "Look, we've got this covered... just sit back and watch the magic happen"
