In New Jersey, senior photos weren’t a “thing” …. they weren’t a thing one enjoyed anyway. They sat you in a studio and put smelly capes and gowns and caps on you while you smiled awkwardly at the camera, at the wall, at the ceiling, at your mom in the corner watching you, holding back her laughter.
Here, in Baton Rouge, and in MOST places, senior photos are HUGE THING. Like, outfit changes, location changes, hair and makeup kind of thing. And I’m in love with all of it.
I had the amazing pleasure of shooting Miss Olivia a few weeks ago and it still has me smiling to go back through the photos. We paraded all over downtown BR with her stepmom (my good friend Blythe- hey girl heyy!), her sisters, her mama, and her best friend. To say we painted the town would be completely accurate- both figuratively and literally. Our session ended with Olivia throwing (and getting pelted with) powder paint.
Can’t wait to see what big things this amazing lady will do in life! Olivia, you ROCKED this session and I hope you had as much fun as I did <3
Here are my favorites from the day! PS, get ready for some killer eyes! She’s such a stunner <3 Ok get ready for the paint show! The first few times, Olivia threw it up herself. It was hilarious to watch her reactions and how freaked out she was to see where it would go… Ok, so nowwwww, here is how NOT to throw powder paint at someone. UP, not AT is the key. Hahahahha And it happened again…. we’ll blame the wind 😉 This last shot is one of my favorites because Olivia’s whole family was around her holding paint. They all chucked it at the same time and the joy that followed was infectious.
Good luck Olivia!! You will do amazing things! <3 Paint the world with all your color <3
