I had so much fun shooting Senior Portraits in Raleigh last year that I decided to actively pursue them this year. So far the response has been fantastic and my email and phone has, literally, been blowing up with the requests. As I shoot all my senior portraits on location, I love the fact I have so much artistic freedom in creating photographs that capture the true feeling of each of my clients.
This set of senior portraits in Raleigh is no different. I know Taelor from photographing her sister’s Bat Mitzvah a few years ago. After talking with her a bit, we decided that as golf has been such a big part of her life that we should definitely hit the golf course. We met up at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary and, due to some creative scheduling, we had the golf course to ourselves. Add in a friend of Taelor’s with a golf cart and we have a recipe for a great shoot!
We started out with a golf theme because, well, we were at a golf course. As we worked on Taelor’s swing, sans golf ball, someone (I can’t remember who – I think her friend) made a wisecrack and it just rolled on from there. Taelor has an infectious smile and we spent the entire afternoon laughing at different comments made by either her, her Mom, her friend or me. After a bit Taelor changed outfits and got some beautiful portraits of her using the golden sunlight. We ended up behind the clubhouse working some more getting a mixture of “serious” shots and quite a few “Taelor” shots. As luck would have it, her caddy was around so we grabbed a few shots of them together as well. I had such a blast with Taelor and cannot wait for them to come in and see these photos! Hope you enjoy a few select examples of my Senior portraits in Raleigh.
