SPOTLIGHT SENIOR: DARIAN (Cont.)
Commerce Michigan Senior Portrait Photographer
I am excited to finally post the gorgeous Darian and the second half of her senior session. Darian is pretty awesome, not only was she outgoing and super fun to hang out with and not to mention magically beautiful, but she rides and has a crazy love affair with horses. Darian and her mom, Michelle, who I may add is just as cool and funny, brought me to her stables where I met her horse Tali and spent the rest of the evening photographing her in her favorite place. It brought the most amazing, pure, and sincere emotion out of Darian and it made for some of my favorite images I have ever shot. There is really something to be said for portraying the real personality when it comes to the way I photograph high school seniors. I spend a lot of time working with them and getting to know who they are and what makes them unique so that I can bring that out in their portraits. The more I make a point to get to know them and what makes them tick, the more I can guarantee that there wont be any awkward poses, fake smiles, or random locations that don’t represent them. I want each and every one of my seniors to look and feel natural and genuine in their images in addition to giving them photos that are 100% different from any one else in their class.
Hope you enjoy these shots of Miss Darian 🙂
And the other love of her life? Kenai! her golden retriever! This girl LOVES her animals and let me tell you, they love her right back. So naturally, it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t take a few with her pup. I have to say though, as I was there to witness this first time that Kenai had ever been to the stables, I have never seen a dogs eyes bug out of their head as much as Kenai’s did when he saw those big horses as they came walking up next to him!
Darian- I can’t even explain what a great time I had photographing you! It was definitely a day to remember and a phenomenal day for me as a photographer. Enjoy your last year of high school my dear, it’s going to FLY!
