This Adriatica senior photography session was in McKinney on a lovely fall day.
So fun when the students finally get to wear their senior jackets. Most get them in the spring and since we are around Dallas, Texas, spring and summer are HOT. So when the temperatures are even moderately cooler, out come the jackets. They work hard for those jackets and I love photographing the students in them.
Katie is one of Studio You Portraits' senior models for the Class of 2016.
She has such a gorgeous complexion! Kei Perry did her beautiful makeup just prior to the session. Professional makeup is such a fun experience. I really recommend all girls get makeup. It makes it special and they always feel glamorous and beautiful. Katie arrived at the session in a casual outfit that she loved wearing. I climbed up on a windowsill and then sat on a part of the building's facade to get this one. I enjoyed how the light fixtures framed her face:
Adriatica has lovely stone work, which gives us a nice, neutral tones. It makes vivid color really pop:
The surrounding area has a large, grassy hill, which leads down into a bike path. We were watching for cyclists! I love when I can create some irony in a shot, like when a girl has on a fancy dress, but we pose here somewhere unexpected. Katie and I had chosen her outfits at her in-home consultation. During the consultation, someone brought up wearing a crown.
Turns out Katie has some tiaras. She asked if she should wear one. Heck, yeah! I loved her Converse shoes with her tiara. So adorable and totally Katie!
She did wear more formal shoes, too:
Finally, that jacket she worked so hard for. I wanted to be sure to feature some of the patches, which showed her accomplishments:
We ended as the sun was going down with some fun shots on a rock wall. It was a bit breezy, but long hair looks so pretty when it's blowing like this:
Thank you for reading!
