Senior Ambassador Shoot in Piedmont

Uncategorized

So I don’t know if I’ve mentioned how much fun it is to do senior shoots. If I haven’t said it before – I LOVE SENIOR SHOOTS! Some photographers feel that teens can’t open up and really show themselves but I haven’t found that to be true at all. Last week I did a shoot with Mimi (a nickname that came about from her toddler years of saying “me, me”) at Piedmont Community Center and it couldn’t have gone better.

Mimi is one another of my Senior Ambassadors, this time from The Head-Royce School in Oakland. Mimi has this look that seemed like a combination of Felicity’s Keri Russell and Mariah Carey, in her pre-Glitter days.

She has quite a few interests outside of school that contributed to making her session a bit unique. Mimi skis and is a ski instructor in Tahoe and it was imperative that we get some pictures with her fun and funky fur accessories.

She brought several outfits which was just perfect for the different surroundings I had scouted out for us. We were initially going for a wintery look but the day was just too beautifully bright and green to go that route.

We had a really good time and we got some great goofy and modelesque shots of her at the fountain.

Surprisingly, she had never modeled before. She was so natural and even came in with some stuff that she wanted to try herself. I absolutely love it when the models bring in suggestions of their own. This was one of hers…

All in all it was a great time. Here’s the picture she chose for her senior picture.

Thanks, Mimi! You were awesome!
