Shooting seniors is a new-found love of mine. I think it has something to do with the age — they’re right on the brink of so much, senior year, college applications, thinking about which university they want to go to, or what they want to major in, or taking the SATs….and yet, they’re still chill high school students, teenagers who have their well-formed personalities and, most importantly, their opinions.
That said, I recently got the chance to photograph this very awesome senior, Sydney, who wanted that rustic Historic Ellicott City feel to her pictures. She was a natural in front of the camera and I loved that she unblinkingly bought into my kooky ideas (yay!) — the result was sheer awesomeness. (You wouldn’t think that I’m a writer, would you?)
Here are a few from her shoot. Enjoy!
