Meet Abrielle, a senior at Gresham High School, who goes by Abby. With a sarcastic sense of humor, a quiet demeanor, and a hardworking spirit, Abby’s personality shines through in everything she does. She loves spending time with her friends, traveling, and snowboarding, and she’s got big dreams of attending medical school after graduation.

When Abby and her mom approached me about her senior portraits, they had already decided that Abby wanted her photos taken in her grandparents’ backyard. This beautiful location features a small garden, deciduous trees, a long driveway, and an open field with a rustic weathered barn.

We started Abby’s senior photo shoot on the edge of the property, near her grandparents’ home, underneath some trees. Abby wore a casual outfit of jeans and a pink t-shirt, which provided a relaxed and summer-like feel that perfectly complemented the greenery around us. Abby’s quiet demeanor came through beautifully as she posed naturally, her sarcastic humor bringing out genuine smiles. The result was some truly authentic, traditional senior pictures.

Next, we moved to the open fields on the property. Here, Abby changed into a stylish brown crop-top paired with jeans. The backdrop of the weathered barn and sprawling fields added a rustic charm to her portraits. This location also offered a special opportunity to capture a few images with her boyfriend, which added a touch of personal significance to Abby’s senior portrait experience.

For the final segment of the photo shoot, Abby changed into a light blue sun dress and we headed to the garden area. Here the corn fields int he garden area aligned perfectly with the evening sun. The lush green plants contrasted beautifully with her blue dress. And the sun created the perfect hair light as it magically filtered through the trees and garden plants behind her.

As the sun began to set futher, we captured some final images along the driveway, surrounded by golden grass and bathed in the soft light of the sunset. The long driveway symbolized her journey ahead, filled with aspirations and dreams, as she prepares to embark on her life after high school. These sunset images were a beautiful conclusion to our session.

Working with Abby was a delightful experience. Her unique personality, combined with her personal connection to the backdrop of her grandparents’ backyard, resulted in a set of senior portraits that are both meaningful and beautiful. Choosing a familiar and cherished location for her senior photo shoot allowed Abby to feel comfortable and express herself authentically, which is a crucial element in creating timeless and memorable senior portraits.
