One of the best things about Senior Portraits with students from the Culver Academies is how diverse their lives are, yet how bonded they are due to the amazing boarding school they attend which offers so many opportunities. Because of the many activities they are involved in, having two senior portrait sessions (or more) really captures their personalities!
Patience and I met this past Summer for her "fun" portrait session at the Always Happy Life Photography studio. She brought her street clothes (aka civvies) for her first session and then in the Fall, we did her "formal" session once the leaves had changed and she was back at the Culver Girls Academy.
This young lady is going places! She is an absolute sweetheart...and extremely talented too! For her summer session, she brought along a small crowd of family and friends to make her smile and be an audience while she strummed her guitar and sang. My favorite image from that session is Patience sitting in the field of wild flowers and playing her guitar. So natural...
Here are a few images from her summer session with our rustic barns, vintage cars and gorgeous trees.
Patience's dad liked this image of her with her guitar and our 1963 Mini Cooper S that he had it made into a large gallery wrapped canvas. It was the perfect fit for his music room where he has a bunch of his favorite musician photographs hanging in classic black and white. I love prints on canvas and was so excited to hand this one over to her when they picked up their order. It looked so stunning in black and white!
We scheduled her Fall session several times...but had to reschedule due to the weather not cooperating. Wind and rain made it difficult and we had to cancel twice. Finally, everything aligned with her busy class and sport schedule, along with the most perfect warm Fall day for her formal senior portraits. Patience wanted some images in her Culver uniform with her blazer, but also some in her cheerleading uniform and as we walked about the Culver campus, we visited some of my favorite spots and found some new ones too. Enjoy a few of the images from Patience's Fall formal portrait session on the gorgeous Culver Academies campus...
