Senior sessions are my favorite type of portrait session to shoot and adding livestock to the session makes it even sweeter. Allie’s Shanksville senior photos were so special for me. Her mom was my childhood neighbor when I was still in diapers. I’ve watched Allie grow up showing livestock and blossom into the beautiful young lady she is today.
The chilly August evening felt like a hint of fall. Pulling into the driveway and seeing a trailer lined full of banners and the beautiful landscape of the Laurel Highlands I knew it would be a special evening.
The session started out with photos of her awards and supreme showmanship chair. Its a feat to win one supreme showman title and I could tell how proud she was of her accomplishment. Then, we did a handful of photos with her livestock and the bond she had with them was evident. Outside of showing livestock, Allie is talented basketball player.
We gabbed about our favorite clothing stores and the treasures we found shopping at secondhand stores. The shirt Allie wore is from Repeat Boutique in Johnstown. The muted colors in Allie’s shirt compliment her hair and skin beautifully.
When you’re thinking about what to wear for your senior photos gravitate towards muted colors. Create an outfit that as different textures and feels. Adding a jacket or swapping out jewelry you can quickly change the look for a second outfit. Stay clear of bold patterns and items of clothing you don’t normally wear. Don’t forget the little details like freshly painted nails and groomed hair. Above all, wear something you’re comfortable in!
