Senior Guy Session in Spring Hill, TN

This is probably too many photos for a sneak peek, but I can’t help it. I have decision fatigue and also I just love this Senior Portrait Session. Everything was perfect…the weather, the leaves, and the subject.

I wish every day could be late October in Middle Tennessee.

Senior Guy Session at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park

Senior guy photo session in Franklin TN

It was a gorgeous evening at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park in Franklin for this senior portrait session. And we were able to include a few shots of the family dog. In case you are wondering, I’m always happy to include fur babies in a portrait session, assuming our location is pet friendly (and most are).

I just love the wardrobe choices for this selection. Notice he’s wearing the same jeans throughout, but a few top and jacket changes gave so much variety. I love the colors and textures.

Senior Guy Session in Downtown Columbia

I really love photographing senior portrait sessions in downtown Columbia. There are so many fun buildings and textures, and it’s generally less crowded than downtown Franklin. It was thankfully much warmer than my maternity photo session on Friday. It was a beautiful afternoon getting to know Ethan and his mom.

While we were walking around taking photos, I was saying that I really need to explore more of the fun restaurants in Columbia. What are some of your favorites?

Senior Portraits at Pinkerton Park

I think my favorite pictures from this Senior Session at Pinkerton Park in Franklin are the ones in the playground. I’ll admit that it’s totally because Liam’s mom told me that he used to play in that very same playground as a boy. Well, you know I’m a sap for a sentimental photo location. As a mama myself, the photo of the senior guy with his childhood playground in the background gets me in the feels.

Behind-the-Scenes: Senior Pics in Downtown Columbia

Behind the Scenes Senior Pictures in Downtown Columbia TN

It’s always a special treat to photograph Senior Pictures for a family I’ve known forever. So I was really excited when my old friend Ellen booked me for her son Will’s Senior Portrait Session. She wasn’t sure where they wanted to take the pictures but said they loved textures and cool walls. After some discussion, we settled on Downtown Columbia, which is one of my favorites that few people ever pick.

While I was shooting, I didn’t realize that Ellen was taking a few photos of me. She shared them with me, so I thought it might be fun to show you a behind-the-scenes view of a portrait session by sharing her pics side by side with the ones I was taking when she captured me.

I discovered the backside of this strip of buildings the last time I shot in Columbia & wanted to shoot there again. The sky was pretty cool so I got some close-up shots and some wide-angle views. This is not an angle I would use for a grown person, but these young kids can handle it.
I love this big textured wall in Downtown Columbia but wish there weren’t parking spaces right in front of it. It’s a really cool spot to capture a lot of different angles.
I once took photos of a guitar player in front of Variety Record Shop. Since Will plays the Trumpet, I thought it would be fun to photograph him there too.
I just loved how the brown door, trim, and bricks worked with what Will was wearing, and his red hair. The colors were fantastic. Also, you’ll notice I did not include any black & white images in this blog preview. I just couldn’t do it. The colors were too perfect.
This photo, in particular, did a great job of showing how the beauty of a session location really is in the eye of the photographer. This was literally some back alley construction site with garbage all around. But the texture of the stack of bricks, the stone and brick walls, and the ivy growing in the background got my attention. And I thought the colors worked great.
