Winter Senior Portrait Sessions

Something new here at the Portrait Studio–Winter Senior Portrait Sessions

I recently began offering a small add on to my Senior Portrait clients of short Winter Senior Portrait Sessions to take advantage of the natural beauty of the snow in our area.  I will freely admit that Winter is way too cold for me, but this has somewhat made it much more bearable for me!  Basically we do a short session with one outfit and just have some fun.

It has been a fun challenge to find some new locations locally because things look very different at this time of year.  I also love the way the light bounces off the snow to create soft light for portraits.  Plus, because the sun is generally lower in the sky, we have generally more flattering light at more times during the day with less harsh shadows.

Halle looks like a Cover Girl here.
Ballet Dancer Senior Portrait
This is our lovely dancer, Anna. She has been the Snow Queen in a local production of the Nutcracker, so it was perfecct that we had actual snow.

We used a few items from my wardrobe–the headpiece, sweater and scarf.

We added the fur from my personal stash because it matched perfectly.

We actually did a few indoors as well with Aidan’s chess set. I love the way this turned out.

Becca had two looks–the first was this sophisticated black dress.

Becca’s second look was the exact opposite with a Cinderella vibe from Fancy Schmancy.

I have been wanting to do a Steampunk themed session, so this was the perfect time to try it out!

I hope you enjoyed these Winter Senior Portraits as much as I enjoyed photographing them!
