A fun shoot with a HS Senior in Alaska
My very first assignment when I arrived in Alaska, was to shoot a HS Senior in Eagle River. I got my rental truck, got directions, and off I went from the airport to meet Bridget and her daughter, Victoria for the shoot. We briefly had discussed what they wanted over a great lunch prepared by Bridget (thank you), and then drove to the shoot location that had two beautiful horses. Once there, we began shooting and the weather actually cleared up as the shoot progressed. It was almost as if I brought some good weather up to them from Vegas. Victoria was a trooper and quickly relaxed and got into the “shooting mood” and just focused on what we were doing and I think that comes through in the images below. One thing I feel is very important is building a trust and a comfort level between the photographer and the subject. Although Bridget and Victoria differed on what would look good as a senior portrait, the end images came out beautiful. See for yourself….
