“Saw the photos on the website and I have to say I am so in love with what you did! They turned out amazing!”-Logan
Logan and her parents contacted us with hopes of getting her senior pictures done while they were visiting Charleston. These pictures weren’t only being taken to appease Logan, but her parents wanted to capture these memories of their little daughter before she packed up and went off to college. Knowing we were shooting for a bigger group of people, we knew we had to get a variety of pictures to span over a couple generations of family members.
When it comes to capturing great looking portrait shots, there are a lot of things to take into consideration as a photographer. Not only do we have to think about the technical things, like lighting and posing, but we also have to know how to use our clients choice of clothing. Luckily for us, Logan’s choice of outfits she brought to her photoshoot were very simple in terms of colors. As you can see above, her white long-sleeved t-shirt, paired with dark denim pants and light brown boots, enabled us to put her in a variety of different settings. The pop of color coming from her scarf really played well with her outfit, and also plays nicely with the rustic vibe Charleston is known for. As the sun began to set, Logan put on an elegant red dress. Again, it was very plain with no crazy patterns on it, thus making her the center of attention in all of her shots. She really stuck out in the backdrops that Todd placed her in.
Whenever we receive positive feedback from our clients after they review our work, we know we’ve accomplished our jobs, especially if they’re viewing photos of other people on our website and not just the pictures we took of them. We never set any limits on how many photos we take during a session, even if it’s a short session. We want to make sure we capture as many memoirs for our clients as we can, and if that means running through memory card after memory card, then so be it. Nothing is more music to our ears than hearing our clients say they’re going to have a hard time picking from the photos we show them during the shoot, as was the case for Logan and her parents on this day.
