This PESH Senior Portraits session was done on-location in McKinney.
Olivia is one of Studio You Portrait's Class of 2016 senior models.
We decided to do her session at Adriatica in McKinney. In case you don't know, Adriatica has an Old World sort of style, even though it's a fairly new shopping center. Lots of stone work and some green areas, too. Olivia and I walked around a little to the different areas and had a good time experimenting with poses.
She started out in a grey dress. The neutral palette brings all the attention to her face.
Next outfit was something a little dressier. The vivid colors were perfect for this spot at Adriatica:
And there were tunnels! So much fun. Olivia is a dancer so I knew a graceful pose like this would be fun!
While my wonderful assistant was setting up and after Olivia changed into her third outfit, I saw this little hill with the light hitting the houses behind it in a beautiful way.
The light was a little harsh since there were no trees to filter the light.
Changing to B&W seemed like a great way to show this high contrast portrait.
Did I mention it was really windy that evening? This shot shows the wind but her pose kept her hair out of her face:
Next, we worked with another part of the are that had different stone work:
Gotta have a good headshot, too, of course. Loved this one! Her eyes are so beautiful. I loved how the wind was blowing her hair a little on this one, too.
I'd definitely be interested in doing another session at Adriatica (or other local areas, too). Are you in the Class of 2015? I still have some sessions left. Be sure to call 214.783.9691 or email Dawn@StudioYouPortraits.com to check availability.
