Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. It is a great time for Senior Portrait Photography in Connecticut. This year has been both a pleasure and a challenge. The weather for the most part has been wonderful, even with so little rain and unusually warm conditions. Unfortunately, the colors never really popped. The only ‘reds’ I had here were the poison ivy vines! When the rain and wind did come all the leaves came down except for the mighty oaks which were pretty ravaged in my neck of the woods by caterpillars. Ah, the challenges of outdoor portraits! Besides all this, I managed to arrange and rearrange schedules to make it all work this October.
Senior Portrait Photography does not have to be limited to High School Seniors. This year I did a number of College Senior Portraits for graduating UCONN students, both last spring and this fall.
Meet Tara, a senior from UConn who called me about senior portraits as a gift for her parents after putting her through college. What a wonderful idea and I am sure her parents will be thrilled. Tara is a bright and intelligent young lady from Texas. She fell in love with New England and wanted an opportunity to be photographed in the beautiful fall colors.
To plan for our senior portrait photography session we did 3 important things:
- We connected by phone, determined a date for the session.
- Then we met in person to get to know each other a bit, and I learned about what she loved about New England so I could incorporate those things in the photos to remember her best times here at UCONN.
- We discussed what she would wear, the colors that she looks good in, and what colors would look good in the environment.
After postponing and rescheduling due to the weather, I think we created some wonderful portraits together. Here are a few favorites:
Let me know if you have any questions about Senior Portrait photography in Connecticut or about my Family Sessions. I am happy to see if we can squeeze you in before Thanksgiving!
