Here in Fort Wayne, Indiana, girls take their high school senior pictures seriously and so do I! I started my career with photographing high school seniors and they remain a favorite genre today. Here is a sneak peek at a very special shoot.
High School Senior Pictures for Girls
Eden wanted the best of both worlds for her senior pictures. To accomplish that, she wanted images captured in in both the summer and winter months. We started planning in the fall and had to work around all kinds of “crazy” in her senior schedule. We waited for snow, but then finally pulled the trigger in February after what was a rather snowless, but cold winter.
Eden’s Winter Shoot
Our goal for the winter shoot was to capture some Vanity Fair and old Hollywood inspired glamour in some of her favorite dresses in the studio. I’m in heaven when my clients share my love of these two special genres. Doesn’t everyone dream of being in the pages of a fashion magazine? I know I do!! We started with hair and make-up by two members of my glamour squad. Her hair was done by Julia Soto of Stoney Creek Hair Designs, and make-up was done by the talented Julie Kroll of JM Artistry.
When we headed outside, it was a frosty, cold afternoon with a hint of flurries in the air. Certainly it was nothing to get excited about and there was no accumulation on the ground. I told her not to worry, I would investigate how to create that perfect snowy background in post-production and turn her images into the winter wonderland we both wanted to photograph in. Don’t you think we achieved that magical look?
The Summer Shoot
Our second session happened in June, when the weather was just starting to warm-up. We took some traditional senior photos in downtown Fort Wayne, including some cap and gown photos to commemorate her upcoming graduation. Although not all her pictures are featured here, we also captured images highlighting the pandemic and the on-going protests that were a hallmark of 2020.
To finish our salute to senior year, we went to a beautiful country side location where one of her best friends lived. There we found tall grass and a wonderful pond to wade in. Ever so slowly she started to walk into the water, and we took pictures ever step of the way. Finally she got completely wet, just as the sun was starting to fade into the horizon. It really was a magical moment and I believe her pictures are reflective of it as well.
Now that Eden has safely transitioned to college in sunny and warm Arizona, these images will be a treasured remembrance for her family while she is away. Smart, savvy, beautiful, and a terrific human being, Eden is poised for all the success she has worked so hard to achieve. Like her mother, I believe capturing the senior experience is as much for the family as it is for the student. Her album is a treasure of 63 stunning senior pictures I am proud to have created.
I would love to create something equally magical with all of your hopes and dreams in mind. Here are some additional examples from recent senior sessions at Kristine Logan Photography. Your Fort Wayne senior pictures are just a phone call away. Let’s start planning your senior experience today!
