It's hard to believe it's almost Senior Season again! I decided, after shooting last year, that High School seniors are among my favorite subjects. As much as I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE babies and kids, seniors are the nice break you need to keep your sanity some days! Many sessions of shooting on the fly after a rambunctious toddlers or the kids who just do not want their photo taken, it's nice to take a break from that for seniors who can follow instructions and pose themselves and best of all hold the pose for more than 2 seconds :).
I know it's been a really long time since I was a high school senior myself but I can remember how excited I was for my senior session, and I can remember how much I hated the posing..the "turn your head just a little to the left, a little more, no to far..." and feeling like most of my images didn't reflect much about me. I promise you, you won't get much of that from me. I tend to give very little direction when it comes to posing unless you are bending at a really weird angle and it looks like your missing an arm or something. I am more into capturing "you", how you'd normally act/stand/smile if I wasn't a stranger with a camera in your face! I like to get you laughing to loosen up the mood, I want your photos to reflect who you are. I encourage you to bring a friend with you to your session, one who's good at getting you to smile and isn't afraid to act silly. Pick a great location or two of your choosing that reflects your interests/personality! I'm always interested in checking out new locations! So all this talk of seniors brings me to the senior rep program. I will be taking applications for seniors who will represent Amber Yanovich Photography for the 2014 senior class through March 28th, 2013. One boy and one girl from each school only.
Are you or someone you know an outgoing 2014 high school senior that would be interested in a free senior portrait session in exchange for spreading the word about Amber Yanovich Photography? If so fill out the form below. Senior representatives will receive a free senior portrait session including up to two locations of their choosing in Jackson County (travel outside of Jackson is possible but will be charged for). Reps will also receive representative cards with their photos on them to hand out to their friends. The rep who refers the most clients will receive a $50 visa gift card, and all reps get 15% off their photo print orders.
