Senior Portraits Westlake, Tx Class of 2019 Photo Session

Main Street Grapevine was a great choice for the Westlake Academy graduate’s photo session. We used a variety of brick walls and alleys to capture a variety of styled looks. We started with a navy tux utilizing the grand archways of city hall. Next, the casual sweater with a bomber jacket was perfect for rustic sun drenched walls. We finished off the session with a light denim blue shirt. We found an interesting alley composed of white brick and dark red brick. With the sun reflecting on the wall, we captured great city shots.

The duration of the session was approximately one hour. In that time, we managed to capture a variety of scenery as well include several wardrobe changes! To incorporate variety in the wardrobe, the client utilized layers such as jackets, sweaters, and ties. Quick changes on the spot with these props created several different looks in a short period of time. Also, the client was prepared with formal, semi casual, and relaxed styles. Planning ahead of time and helping the client select the wardrobe created a seamless session that moved quickly.

Planning Your Senior Portraits

With each session, I take time with the client to create a photo session that depict’s the teens interests, personality, and style. The process usually involves these steps.

Consultation: This begins with a consultation on the phone, usually with the parent scheduling the session. We discuss the teen’s style preferences. I explain location options such as urban, modern, natural, and manicured gardens. The next topic is wardrobe, as well as the teens interests and hobbies.

Wardrobe Planning: I advise clients to choose three outfits in each style:

  • Formal- Young men bring sports coats, suits, or a tuxedo while girls may bring a prom dress.
  • Semi-Dressy- Young men tend to wear khakis, dark wash jeans with a tailored shirt. Girls wear skirts, rompers, or jeans with a decorative top.
  • Casual- This is where the teen can relax in one of their favorite outfits such as jeans and relaxed tops.
  • Accessories: Bringing along accessories creates many diverse looks in a 60 minute session. Items for young men include scarves, vests, ties, sunglasses, and jackets. Girls can accessorize with hats, scarves, jewelry, cardigans, and vests.
  • Shoes- It is a great idea to bring several types of shoes to the session for each outfit type. Loafers, ankle boots, and athleisure tennis shoes are great for boys. Girls have a large variety of shoe options such as booties, riding boots, heals, sandals, and athleisure shoes.

Special Interests and Hobbies: If the teen has a particular interest, sport, or hobby, I am glad to incorporate that into the session. For example, one senior was on the bass fishing team, so we included his fishing pole, jersey, and even his boat! To view this session follow the link. Another senior was a ballerina, so we included photos of her in pointe.

Tips for a Successful Session: I advise the teen to bring the outfits ready to go on hangers. We usually begin with the most formal outfit and change outfits to more casual. Outfit changing is part of the session time, so it is very helpful to have outfits organized.

I work very closely with the clients to ensure their session runs smoothly. These tips prepare the client with expectations. I am always happy to provide input on wardrobe selection as well as location ideas.

One of my most reliable locations is Historic Grapevine. The area offers a variety of photo backdrops in a very close proximity. The red brick adds sophistication, while the pioneer area offers a rustic feel. Walk a short distance and the unique shop storefronts create interesting points. There are also a couple of green spaces that give a manicured look. Within one hour, we can use all of the spots to create an image gallery with a variety of scenery.

I had a great time helping this senior’s vision come to life! She had a preference of rustic and relaxed. We first used the open pastures at Green Acres Memorial Park. Although the ground was pretty damp from previous rains as well as filled with puddles, we managed to find great places to photograph throughout the park! She came with a great attitude and didn’t mind if her feet got a little wet!

The silo added an interesting rustic touch for her portraits. The textured background always adds interest.

We used a small wildflower garden next to the silos. I had never utilized this area, but it really is quite a pretty backdrop!

Next, we ventured to nearby Shops at Lakeside. The stone and clean lines architecture complimented her last outfits really well. Since it was near sunset, the shop lamps were illuminated. I love that the lamps are in the photos!

Congrats Coppell New Tech graduate class of 2019 for your acceptance to University of Oklahoma, OU Boomer Sooner!
