William Jessup Graduating Senior Portraits :: Lauren

Senior Graduation Portrait Photographer Sacramento Califonia-3

Last month, I had to pleasure to photograph Lauren for her senior graduation photos.  Her Mom and I knew of each other through Instagram a while back. Lauren and her Mom run an online cheerleading clothing company called Herkie 13. Lauren cheered in high school and has been in tracks all through high school and college. So when her Mom told me that Lauren wants me to take her sport photos, I got super excited!!!!

I shoot outdoor so much but sport is really new to me. I was so excited for the challenge so I got a bunch of inspirations from Pinterest. Needless to say, all of my inspirations came by Nike and Adidas ads. We met at Folsom Lake College because they have a really nice field that we can take photos in.

My goal for the shoot: I wanted to capture her STRENGTH, SPEED AND CONFIDENCE.

After track photos, we headed to Folsom Lake to shoot Lauren in her second outfit. She told me she wanted these photos by the water. Folsom Lake made sense to us since it has water, rocks and pretty plans. It was cloudy that day and we came about 1 hour before sunset so we had the most beautiful light to work with. Since it was cloudy, I even had her face the sun the whole time. If you follow my work, you know that I hardly ever do this as facing the sun can create harsh shadows and can be very unflattering. But since it’s cloudy, it was acceptable.

And to be honest, Lauren doesn’t really have anything that’s unflattering. I gave her a few directions on what to do and how to pose and BAM!!!! She got it!!! Almost every photo I took of her was adorable!Senior Graduation Portrait Photographer Sacramento Califonia-hSenior Graduation Portrait Photographer Sacramento Califonia-eThat candid laugh is just so adorable to me.

Aren’t these images so sweet?Senior Graduation Portrait Photographer Sacramento Califonia-bSenior Graduation Portrait Photographer Sacramento Califonia-27Lately I’ve been practicing to get really “engaging” photographs. So when I shoot with more than one person, my approach is to “get closer…hug…wrap your arms around the other person.”

To me, a great photograph is not just getting the camera setting right but I also need to get you to express the right body language through that photograph. So hug away and laugh away!!!! Senior Graduation Portrait Photographer Sacramento Califonia-26Senior Graduation Portrait Photographer Sacramento Califonia-25Folsom Lake Recreation Park Beal's Point California Sacramento-16Senior Graduation Portrait Photographer Sacramento Califonia-c
