I had a total blast creating Emilee’s AMAZING boho chic Reno High School Senior portraits at Galena Creek Regional Park! I had the honor of creating her brother’s senior portraits a few years back, and I was SO EXCITED when I was asked to photograph Emilee, too.
Emilee’s wardrobe and accessory choices were absolute perfection. Her red dress stood out PERFECTLY from the golden aspens. Her black books and plush ivory sweater for outfit number two looked so cozy on a chilly fall afternoon as well.
And let me tell you – it was CHILLY.
Boho Chic Reno High School Senior Portraits
The colorful aspens at Galena Creek Park created a wonderful contrast to Emilee’s red dress for the first part of our session. The sun peering through the leaves created the most beautiful golden light. Thank goodness for that bit of sun, because it was an unseasonably cold October afternoon. I was freezing, even in a heavy sweatshirt and long leggings! She was such a good sport – powering through the chill in the air.
For the second half of her session, Emilee got to warm up with a cozier ensemble. Always another reason why bringing a wardrobe change is a good idea! The colors and textures for her second outfit meshed perfectly with our fall setting.
Being a High School Senior Photographer
It means the WORLD to me when I’ve photographed a senior and the parents ask me to do so again. I truly feel like high school senior portraits are my calling. I love photographing families and children – always. But I find myself feeling on cloud nine when I’ve finished a senior session. It’s such a fun & rewarding experience to be part of the moments before a young adult starts their journey of independence. It’s just so cool!
Join me in congratulating Emilee on her senior year, and wishing her luck as she decides where to go and what to do in the future!
