Gillian Holder’s summer senior session

If you love this post share it with a friend and make their day a little brighter!

We had a lot of fun picking outfits and locations for Gillian’s senior pictures. We planned on mixing it up with some urban and more natural settings and then shooting into the night a little. She had so many great outfits to choose from!!! The first outfit was a beautiful floral patterned shirt that looked awesome offset in the more industrial and city setting we planned. It is really hard to choose but I think this was my favorite set of images.

We split the next look between shooting downtown and a field with some white wildflowers……Just love this dress!

We switched into another floral patterned dress for the field that we shot in…..

We get asked often if we do sports pictures….. and yes, we do quite often actually. While Gillian got into her soccer jersey we set up some lighting to get some more dramatic images for her. I typically like to shoot natural light but sometimes you need a little more drama in your life……

It was not a particularly hot summer day but it is always nice when it cools off before dusk and the sky and lighting is just wonderful. We shot this sequence of images downtown on the river walk piers.

Finally it was dark enough to capture some of the city lights at night. We did a quick look change by simply removing the jacket. We are big on using layers to get a variety of looks quickly as you can see between the last two sets of images.

Gillian is such a breeze to work with and shoot. We are blessed to have her on our class of 2018 model team!
