Perry | East Lake High School | Class of 2014

November 26th, 2013

I know I’ve said it before but if this is the first ever blog post that you’ve ready of mine, then it’s like new material for you but I love it when guys get in on their senior sessions.  Yes, usually it’s mom that schedules it and they play along but it still makes me […]

 

I know I’ve said it before but if this is the first ever blog post that you’ve ready of mine, then it’s like new material for you but I love it when guys get in on their senior sessions.  Yes, usually it’s mom that schedules it and they play along but it still makes me all sorts of giddy when they guys want to do it.

Okay…well let me back up because during Perry’s session the norm came out of his mouth…I hate my picture taken.  All of my guy senior say that, and believe it or not, some of my senior girls too but by the time we get to the end of the session I always get “that wasn’t so bad.”  Ummm I know this <insert pat on back here haha>

Perry’s mom had asked me if he could bring a pet to his session.  I’m always all for seniors, couples, portrait clients to bring their pets (just make sure someone is there to take care of them because while we love them, we don’t want them in all the pictures).  The next email from mom was…well, it’s a bird, sort of big.

This.
Was.
Awesome.

Not only do I love macaws but this was one I never encountered before.  Dogs?  Of course but a bird?  So I really wasn’t sure how this was going to work.  We shot on Dunedin Causeway because that’s Perry.  On the weekends and during the summer, that’s where you’ll find him so it was only fitting because again, if you’ve read anything on here before, I try and stay as far away from the beach as possible.  The session is about you not what everyone else is doing but the causeway is Perry.  When I got there, Buddy the Macaw was hanging out in the sand with his leash on.  It was the coolest thing ever.

Perry did an absolutely amazing job.  We flew through the session because I knew it was the last place he wanted to be, I made it totally painless and we got some awesome images.  Plus, East Lake had a pretty important game Friday night (which they won!) so he still had game day prep to get through.

Lindsey | Countryside High School | Class of 2014

Not gonna lie here, when Lindsey and her mom contacted me about her senior pictures and she said she was graduating from Countryside High School, I got a little giddy!  Why, I mean it’s only a high school right?  Since most of my seniors are Tarpon or East Lake, it was awesome to have a graduating senior from Countryside High School.

I always send my seniors a questionnaire getting to know them a little better so that we can get the perfect location for their session.  Lindsey was no different except she came back with ‘I want a country urban’ location.  This was proving to be a tad difficult (haha).  About 4 days before her session, she said something about maybe the sponge docks but I wanted something different, not something around here. The day before her session, I had an idea and when Lindsey and her mom called me to talk about the location, I sprung it on them.

‘How would you like to go on a little road trip?’  At first they were a little hesitate, almost like I had lost my mind but when I started explaining what I wanted to do, both of them were all for it.  And let me tell you something, it was the most awesome time!  We had no set location, no final destination in mind.  We got in the car on Sunday and headed north.  Heading out towards Wesley Chapel, we pulled off on the side of the road, construction sites, back roads and it was perfect!  Lindsey got her little bit of urban with the mixture of the construction sites and she got her country.  We all know that finding open fields in northern Pinellas County really doesn’t happen so if that’s what you want, we have to go find them.

I’m super stoked with how her session came out!  By the time we were half way through the session, I even had Laura, Lindsey’s mom, spotting locations.  Yes!
