Katya and her mother met up with me a little over a month ago to capture her senior portraits. At the time, Katya was just a few months away from graduation. She was in need of photos to not only commemorate the event… but to use in graduation announcements.
Senior Portrait location
Katya mother was the one who initially reached out. At first, the duo was not sure about what type of photo session they would like, studio or on-location. After some discussion, I discovered they really wanted photos with a relaxed natural look. With this in mind, I offered up some suggestions for potential photo shoot locations. After reviewing their options, it was decided Kathryn Albertson Park would be the best fit for Katya’s senior portrait session.
The Photo Shoot
The three of us met on a weeknight after school. I had never met either of these ladies before. So, while we strolled through the park capturing photos, we chatted and got to know each other a bit better. This helped make the experience for Katya as relaxed and fun as possible.
Although many high school seniors look forward to their senior pictures, they are often nervous on the day of the photo shoot. They have a lot of concerns about how to pose, what expression looks best and of course, what to wear. Many of them are also aware that their senior portraits are the photos which will remain on their parent’s walls for years to come. With this in mind, I try to make all of my photo sessions as laid back and relaxed as possible.
On any given day of the year, the areas of Kathryn Albertson Park which are usable for photos varies. Boise had been experiencing quite a bit of rain around the time of Katya’s senior portrait session. Although this made the grass a luscious green color, the ground was soaking wet! This made walking through some areas of the park a challenge. Katya and her mother were troopers! Although we were walking around and jumping over sections of mud… we all managed to leave the park relatively mud free.
