Ellie’s Senior Pictures in Polka Dots

Senior Pictures in Polka Dots at night in NYC Times Square

Ellie’s Senior Pictures in Polka Dots was one of the few outfit and location combinations we didn’t pre-visualize. In fact, we were looking to shoot this gorgeous black 3-piece outfit with some neon lights, but couldn’t find them. So, we wandered around times square in NYC looking for a location that would accentuate the details […]

Urban Senior Pictures in Tulsa, Jensen in Red

Jensen’s Urban Senior Pictures in Tulsa are some of my all-time favorites! I love her red outfit – most seniors shy away from such a bold color, but not Jensen! She rocked it. Even though she lives in Joplin (and I’m in NWA), we picked to do her urban senior pictures in Tulsa for this […]

Jensen’s Senior Pictures in Tulsa: the White Dress Session

We decided to shoot Jensen’s senior pictures in Tulsa as soon as I saw her Pinterest board. I typically have clients share Pinterest boards with me, or create one together. I thrive on planning photo shoots so that there are no surprises when the actual shoot comes. Pre-visualization is a technique a lot of photographers […]

Ellie’s NYC Senior Pictures at the W Hotel

Senior Pictures at the W Hotel in NYC Times Square

While most of Ellie’s NYC senior pictures were thoroughly planned, her Senior Pictures at the W Hotel were not. I’ve always loved staying at W Hotels when I travel. I’m a Marriott lifetime loyal member because of the W Hotel. The W belonged to SPG, but was later acquired by Marriott. Yes, they bought my […]

Senior Pictures at NYU

If a particular college is your 3rd or 4th choice, does it still make sense to get your senior pictures taken there? It does if it’s NYU and we happen to be taking senior pictures in NYC. As I’m sure you’re aware of by now, Ellie and I curated and styled the most epic senior […]

Bentonville Senior Pictures for Taegen

Bentonville Senior Pictures location ideas include the ivy wall at the Cutting Room theatre near a tyedye wall

Our next installment of Taegan’s Bentonville senior pictures take place at the most unlikely of places: A movie theatre. There is a really cool theatre in downtown Bentonville (think: a modern architecture version of Alamo Drafthouse) that had 4 different background textures to use for senior photos. Since I hadn’t shot at this venue before, […]
