Senior triplets?!? What?

When I received this inquiry, I knew it was a challenge that I could not ignore.  We all know that the male gender is not always 100% excited about having their picture taken and to add that times THREE all within the same session type.  Game on!  Many senior photographers focus much to all of their marketing to the girls, but LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS!

Sure, there is less styling/variety to the nature of the wardrobe and potential for posing at times, but how can one ignore the handsome, stellar nature of today’s young men as they graduate high school.  They are young men, often leaving the nest of their friends, family and the comforts of home, too.  It is a celebration of accomplishment, just like it is for the girls.  They deserve their moment in the spotlight, too.  They have worked just as hard and have sweet moms and dads all misty eyed and proud, as well.

With my senior boys, we still focus on 3-4 outfits, we still brainstorm through locations that make sense to their sense of style and visions.  We still have fun and likely laugh even harder than the typical senior girl session.  We have awkward moments, just like any other session which turns to joy.  Don’t forget about the boys, senior photographers, they are some of my favorite sessions!

The final image of our TRIPLE PLAY was a shot of the triplets and their cousin, who is also graduating and heading off to College Station with them. Oh, freshman class in Aggieland, watch out an incredible group of amazing young men are headed to join you.  They are some of the best and I can not wait to watch their journey unfold.

Fresh senior portraits.

Clean family portraits.

Classic child portraiture.

People often ask me, “How would you describe your style?”  Fresh, clean and classic are my typical answers.  BUT, what does that even mean to me?

Fresh

What do I mean by “fresh” in my work?  Well its defined as “not previously known or used; new or different”.  I apply this in using timeless, proven posing techniques  in unique ways.  Angles, triangle, levels….there is always a method to my madness in posing.  I often show each person in a family the “goal pose”, then have them relax and move into it.  Does it always work the first time?  Of course not, but it is often the magic in the in-between that makes an image.

How else it my work fresh?  I typically work in the great outdoors, is there anything more fresh than nature itself?  The bold colors, the vibrant tones and textures set an undeniably beautiful stage for my clients.

Clean

What does clean even have to do with a portrait?  They showered?!?  No, no, noooooo….I use that term in relation to my processing and editing style.  Every image is processed through my digital darkroom in Photoshop.  Photoshop get s a very bad wrap at times in the media and changing bodies into unrealistic goals, but its immense power can complete be used for good, too.

Each image is processed for my signature bold, vibrant, yet technically sound, clean toning.  I will not make someone over to not look like themselves, but a funky white balance surely doesn’t do anyone’s skin any favors.  My goal is merely to lightly polish for pop and who wants this week’s pimple to take center stage?  No Way!

This one is SOOOOO important to me.  I want these images to be passed down, enjoyed and loved for generations.  What will we think of the crazy Instagram type filters in just 10 years time?  Will we still want to look like a tanned oompa-loompa?  Will we love the haze filter that looks like we are viewing it through dirty glasses?  Not a gamble that I am willing to make on treasure moments that you are investing in.

I want classic….I want timeless….I want YOU to be the focus, not some editing or shooting technique.

Family Spring  JCrew Preppy HoustonIt is SPRING time, which means it is time for Preppy family portraits in The Woodlands, Texas!  This is absolutely my favorite season, even though it is SHORT here in Houston.  The humidity is lower, the heat hasn’t settled in upon us like a hot blanket and the flowers and greens are vibrant and rich.  Just classic and ready for the colorful wardrobes of this time of year.

Where should you shop for the perfect spring wardrobe?  Well, I skew to the classic preppy side and the options abound here in The Woodlands.  My top favorites for this classic preppy look?  JCrew and even the Factory store are a must look.  Old Navy, Gap, Vineyard Vines are also wonderful options.  Their styles are timeless, fun and comfortable for all….winner!
