Studio-B-Portraits_High-School-Senior-Pictures-Model-Team-_Morgan-Mount-Si It’s time for the second installment of our Senior Model Interview Series where we talked to some of our very favorite high school models from last years team to get their behind the scenes POV on their experience as a Studio B Portraits top model. This feature we're highlighting the gorgeous Morgan!  If she's looking a bit familiar, it probably because you've seen her splashed across the front of our main Studio B website for the past year -- I absolutely adored this image of her because it fully captured and communicated the "You on Your Best Day" philosophy for every session I shoot here at Studio B..  And since we are currently casting for our NEW 2014 Studio B Seniors Model Team (Open to current High School Juniors) be sure to request an application at Studio B Seniors if you are (or know) and awesome gal or guy that would make a great model for Studio B Portraits!  CLICK HERE to apply online.

NAME: Morgan SCHOOL: Mount Si High School My style right now is… Does warm count...? :) Lovely Washington throws all kinds of weather at us this time of year, I've had fun playing with scarves and BIG SWEATERS. They are my current obsession. Jeans and boots are easy for the winter and being such a bargain shopper.. I like that I can find them for good deals once I start looking around.

Favorite retailer ... Forever 21! I got a lot of my new clothes for my Senior Pictures here and since it isn't too pricey, it makes it reasonable for a high school student! Plus, the new store in Bellevue Square makes a trip much more reasonable than driving to Southcenter, and the store is so big there's usually not a problem finding what I'm looking for!

So “Right Now”…. Like I said, I have a growing number of sweaters... The fall/winter is my favorite season to dress for because adding layers creates both warmth and cute outfits! Plus, it's easy! Jeans, boots, and sweaters and off to school :)

My favorite color(s) is… Blues/Purples, but I loved how my patterned outfits looked on camera! My favorite Studio B Model moment was… Trying to capture my student athletic trainer photographs... Having Brooke and Erin throw a football at my face while trying to keep my eyes open and not create tears from laughing so hard was nearly impossible. Who knew those "in action" shots weren't as easy as they look in magazines... But it was so much fun! I always felt comfortable, never awkward or tense when I was being photographed at Studio B because it was things like this that made the experience exciting and personable.

Describe your best Studio B photo (or outfit)... I have so many photos I like this question is nearly impossible.... BUT! I do absolutely love the image we took during my first session, in my black dress with my arm up laughing. (No it was certainly not a staged fake "laugh for the camera" photograph) When I saw that just having a good time had produced such a great picture I was super excited. I think it really captures my personality and the REAL me, not a posed robot being positioned through a senior photo. I also liked the outfit with my bright yellow pants! It was POURING DOWN RAIN outside, but somehow it ended up creating great lighting, plus the umbrella showed off just how unpredictable Washington weather can be!

Anything else you’d like to share ….  Studio B made the senior photo experience a comfortable and exciting one. I was glad when I saw my pictures that they captured my personality and my style so perfectly. I would recommend anyone goes there, not only for the amazing photography, but because the people are just as great!!

Braces off for Senior Pictures | Studio B Portraits, Issaquah

Fashion-senior-pictures-of-Issaquah-High-School-girl-with-braces-off Meet Kendall from Issaquah High School...a girl with A LOT to smile about on this particular day.  So shooting her senior pictures might be reason enough to be a little giddy, but it's  actually even better than that!  Kendall has been in braces for like...oh, I don't know...8 thousand years and here she is (drumroll) -- metal free!  But there was a catch.  Kendall shared with me that she had her top braces removed just for this one day...WHAT?  Yep. Her lovely orthodontist had planned for her to be done with the bands prior to the shoot but when it didn't happen -- he agreed to take them off for just this one day so that she could flash her pearly whites for the camera -- gorgeous!

Great Guy Senior Pictures | Issaquah High School | Studio B Seniors

Fashion Inspired Senior Pictures featuring Issaquah High School's Amanda | Seattle Senior Photographer
