Urban senior portraits, amazing gowns and supermodel clients– these are a few of my favorite things. Luckily, Savanna’s senior session had all three! I try to shoot all my sessions in the evening, since that’s when I get the best golden sunlight. However, we had to fit Savanna in for a morning session so I had the challenge of finding different spots to shoot where we had good light early in the day. Our first look was this gorgeous red dress, and I knew I wanted a simple location for it so nothing would be competing with the look. A white brick wall made the perfect backdrop and totally let Savanna shine!
For Savanna’s next two outfits, we basically just drove around downtown Fort Payne as I scouted out the best light for us. As a happy coincidence, we were able to find locations that were not only interesting and had great light, but also that coordinated with Savanna’s outfits! It was a fun challenge to scope out new spots, and I love the places we were able to use, especially for the images in the flowing, rust colored top and brown booties.
I was head over heels for Savanna’s next outfit! It was so fun and colorful, but still classy and fashion forward. We paired her bright, floral top with a black floppy brimmed hat that topped off the outfit perfectly. I expected the light to be really harsh at this last location, but it was actually beautiful and looked great with the colors in this outfit.
Savanna’s last outfit was a simple, grey sweater with cut-out detail. She had great variety in her outfits, from an elegant gown, to a casual flowy top, to a simple sweater. That means Savanna had lots of options to choose from when it came to choosing images for her grad invites and prints! It’s always great to keep things like that in mind when planning your session, since a little thought beforehand can make a big difference in the long run!
