Taylor: Senior Portraits at Lair O’ The Bear

Last weekend we met up with Taylor at Lair O’ the Bear in Idledale for her senior portrait session. Fall is my favorite time to photograph with the changing colors of the leaves and we couldn’t have picked a better location (and maybe a better weekend- crossing our fingers this cold wet weekend coming up won’t put an end to the fall colors). Taylor was so easy to photograph. A self-described “off child”, Taylor has tons of personality and was a blast to hang out with that afternoon. She loves water and flowers and having been to Lair O’ the Bear on numerous occasions riding my mountain bike I knew it would be the perfect location for her. This time of year there aren’t a lot of flowers around but we found a few wildflowers in the fields and with the river running along the park we had so many gorgeous backdrops to choose from we could have been there all day photographing. Since it is fall and since Taylor seemed up for having fun we figured what’s better than tossing leaves? I don’t care if you’re five or seventy five, playing in the falling leaves can make anyone smile and I love the photos we got of her especially her expression when they landed right on her head. Here’s just a sneak peek into our afternoon with some of my favorites from the day- enjoy!

Ryan Senior Portraits at Mt Falcon

Have I said how much I LOVE taking senior pictures? Especially when it’s for a friend’s son and at an awesome location like Mt Falcon. Earlier in the year we photographed Trey’s senior pictures downtown and this time around we got to take photos for his brother Ryan. Ryan was a ton of fun to work with! He wanted something a little different than his brother and really liked the “outdoor” nature-type look rather than the urban setting so Mt Falcon was a perfect choice. When we headed up the hill to meet them we had no idea if the weather was going to hold or pour on us. Fortunately we had plenty of time to get lots of great photos in right before the rain started and the clouds made for some awesome pics in the background. Ryan’s short hair for the photos was very recent- to the day in fact. A little misunderstanding at the hair salon left him with a mohawk that just wasn’t going to cut it for pictures so the day of the session he had to cut it all off- it looked great though and you’d never know! Ryan started a new school this year for his senior year and we hope he has a great final high school year (of course awesome photos definitely makes it easy to start the year out right- right?? haha). Here’s some of our favorites!
