Nice pictures! But her foot looks a bit unusual there.

Thanks Gerry, Funny you mentioned that foot. Her mother and I had looked through everything I shot, and for some reason, both her and her mom both picked this photo out strictly because they said they liked that the foot was crooked :confused:

I guess the foot really makes you stop and look at the photo for some reason???

Ok...so I haven't shared much from this past year of HS Seniors, but here are a few that me and parents both liked. Our primary business is babies, but we do the occasional Senior portrait. I hope 8 images isn't too many to share.

I like this one too RJ. If I could comment on it, I would crop a little tighter and (to me), looks like the focus is missed on the eye lashes and eyes and I could be completely wrong, but did you whiten the teeth? They seem a little too white for natural. Again, i could be very wrong.

I do like the shot overall though.

^^ Thanks, the focus is on the eyes, she did a very thick job with eye shadow and eye lashes. I didn't touch the eyes or the teeth. I do crop them a bit loose when I shoot seniors, never knowing what size they're going to want, Fro Knows Photos would kill me but oh well.

Here's a young man I shot today. Wouldn't smile due to his braces so just made due. Had a mild case of pink eye (or terrible allergies) and a ton of blemishes to work on.

These dug out shots are great. Really did the B&W with the logo on the background. Excellent.

Been slammed with our move to Washington. So no seniors until this June and only limited this year. To much wedding work :) Gonna try to get a new studio built this fall and to get the senior thing going out here on the west coast.

Anyone got any tips for getting more senior portraits? :D

I contacted a few of the bigger schools about getting the junior/senior mailing list, the two in VA flat out refused to give it to me, the one in TN said because my studio is in VA they cant do it.

I had lots of interest in my spokesmodel program, but in the end only 3 signed up.

Ive been keeping busy with other portraits but I wouldn't mind getting more seniors scheduled for the summer.

If they won't "GIVE" you a list...you can always buy the list. https://www.google.com​/#q=student+mailing+li​sts (external link)
