This session has been a long time coming. We shot this back in September and Cara has been so patient waiting for it. I wanted to roll it out when the studio was a little bit quieter and people had stopped thinking about weddings and started looking forward to Grad! I'm getting lots of inquiries already... and it's never too early to start thinking about booking your upcoming shoot as many key dates book early.
So, back to Cara. What a natural beauty! Not only that, she was kind and up for anything... a perfect combination for any shoot. And luckily for me, she's my Grad Rep, so I know that she'll rock it in the Spring for her formal session.
Here's Cara - a Kennedy Photografik 2014 Grad Rep. Want to know more about sessions? Just ask her!
One of my favourite trends for Grad photography is a group session. Not only is it cost effective, but it's a lot of fun to get dressed up with your besties and head out to get some great shots together. This session was no different.
Jessie arranged the whole thing and brought her walking partner, Curtis, and friend, Kaela, along... they were SO much fun! I loved the late-night sunset feel of these images. They all look amazing and happy and mature... lovelovelove!
Hillary was selected as one of my Grad Reps for 2014 - she absolutely owned the camera in her fall session (see here!), and I was so excited to see her glammed-up for her Spring portraits, and I was even more thrilled to learn that she was inviting her friends, Hannah and Courtney, along for the afternoon. Are they gorgeous, or what?
We had fun frolicking in a field for some natural, classic images, and then went deeper into the forest and played with some off-camera lighting for some drama. They were up for anything, and their images were awesome. Just like them.
Here are some amazing images from Khyla's Grad session. We shot together just before the big event, and I was lucky enough to have her family come down for some portraits with her, all dolled up! Khyla, you rocked it. Hope you love the images as much as I do!
Seriously, though, check out her shoes. Swoon.
Karysa was one of my Grad Reps for 2014, so I was particularly excited to photograph her before the big show. I really love getting to see students in their finest (and being privied to seeing the gowns ahead of time), and Karysa really didn't disappoint! We shot some more urban shots in Westview and then fled to the trees to get some dreamy images in her chiffon frock. Such a natural beauty.
I'm looking for my Grad Reps for 2015 already! If you are interested - shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information! Deadline is July 31st.
On to the photographs!
