Sofi is a vibrant, energetic high school senior. Her energy and joy for life are so evident when you spend any kind of time with her! If everyone was as happy as Sofi is, the world would be a beautiful place. 😉
I love that Sofia is super involved at school; she’s been in leadership all through high school so it seems like she’s always busy doing something! In fact, just yesterday I noticed that she participated in the polar plunge with her leadership group. Brrrrr!
So onto her senior portrait session! Sofi and I had a few false starts on her session day because of looming rain. Because we were shooting at her horse’s stable an hour away and not near my Brighton Michigan studio, we couldn’t take any chances on getting blasted with rain. Luckily, the day we finally shot had amazingly good weather!
Sofi wanted to be photographed with her horse Finn, a beautiful thoroughbred. We captured a few different looks with Finn and at the stable. Later, we drove into a cute little town and captured Sofi among the architecture there.
Sofia and her family were super happy with the images from her session and purchased a beautiful album with her best images. We also ordered a wall canvas, gift prints and wallet-sized prints. We may even do some custom graduation announcements this spring.
The wall canvas that Sofi’s family ordered works well with a canvas of her older brother, whom I photographed for his senior portraits the summer before. [If you’d like to see any of his senior pictures, you can catch them here.]
People ask me when the best time is to begin thinking about doing senior portraits. What I say is that early summer is a perfect time to do the actual photo shoot, because in July and August, my schedule gets busy with seniors and there aren’t as many possible days or back up days [in case of rain]. So, contacting me in early to mid-May is great so we can be all ready to shoot right after school gets out.
