Lexi Photography » Candid :: Real :: Emotional

I photographed Matthew’s sister for her senior portraits a few years back (actually nearly 5 years ago) so when his mom contacted me to photograph Matthew for his senior portraits I was beyond honored. It really is the biggest compliment to have someone allow me to photograph another important milestone moment for their family. Makes me smile really big smiles. :)

Matt was totally relaxed and easy to photograph. He went with the flow, even when we changed locations (a couple times) and we had perfect night on this cooler evening in lovely Newburyport. Senior portraits for guys is a little more relaxed and mom was really hoping for some smile pictures (with teeth) and I think I caught them at the end. Let’s get to the photos!

Favorite moments:

• Please bring your adorable 5-month old golden doodle with you to your session. Oh you don’t have one…then you’ll just have to enjoy the cuteness of Nala!
• Matt was super easy to photograph and we had perfect light in all of our locations (thank you beautiful summer light)
• Mom really wanted a few photos with her son so we got some…she wanted him to laugh (with teeth) so I think we got a couple. ;)

Alright people. Katie has been my student for three years. I spend the other part of my life as a high school photography teacher and I would say it’s just as important as the work I do as a photographer. I keep that part of my life pretty separate but when former students hire me to photograph them I melt into a little puddle. Yes yes I am lots of pieces of professional and organized—both in my business and in my classroom—but I’m also equal parts feeling, which is likely why you’re reading this here silly blog. So I joked that this session gave me all the feels…but it did. It truly is an honor to photograph my students in their real life and I figure if they trust me enough to do so, well then I must be doing something right. :) So on this slightly stormy August evening we met up at the beautiful Wingaersheek Beach and got the last bits of light before the rain came through…super luck! I’m going to get right to the photos and lucky for you this family is really stinkin’ cute!

Favorite Moments:

• We were fighting a serious thunderstorm on this particular night and we ended up with the perfect evening light and it started raining just as we ended the session. Whew!
• I love that this family was perfectly coordinated but not perfectly matched. Nice job Katie (aka…outfit coordinater)!
• If you have siblings I will likely make you do something silly together, this time it was the monkey walk. I did it for the laughter, I think you’ll find it fun too!

I just can’t even with these photos. Love! I met up with Sydney on a stunning evening in Boston. She is from South Dakota and wanted to make sure that she got some city skyline shots behind her for senior portraits (instead of fields and fields of corn and hay that she was used to seeing) so we headed to the gorgeous Seaport district, which has my very favorite view of the Boston skyline! We walked all through the area and even hit the greenway for some fun photos.

Some nights you get absolutely perfect light. On this particular night the sky was full of gorgeous warm light and Sydney helped to make it amazing–I just couldn’t take a bad photo. Talk about a girl who is stunning, super comfy in front of the camera, and happy. Add to that the beautiful light with perfect temps in my favorite part of the city. Aaaaahhhh perfection. Okay, I know miss Sydney has been checking the blog regularly to see these so let’s get right to them.

Favorite Things:

* Syd showed up with lots of outfit options that were breezy and comfortable and 100% her
* That skyline, I can’t even tell you with the sunshine and the skyline and the gorgeous Sydney how happy I was. :):)
* Sydney would get excited when we finished at a location she would snap her fingers and it was the cutest thing (look at the second to last pic)
