With summer in full swing, Rachel’s thoughts turned to her senior year at Cary Academy (Class of 2017) and her high school senior portrait Cary. Many of her friends had used My Friend Teresa Studios and had such great experiences that Rachel chose Teresa too!
High school senior portrait Cary: Rachel J
Teresa met with Rachel in early July to plan her high school senior portrait Cary. She learned that Rachel’s passion is musical theater. In addition to her senior portraits, Rachel was also seeking professional headshots for her portfolio for auditions. It was important to Rachel that we capture her personality, including her love of flowers, Disney, and her dog Lilly! Teresa recommended that they meet early one Saturday morning at Cary Academy to do portraits in the theater. After that, they planned to go to Fletcher Park in Raleigh for some beautiful outdoor shots, including Lilly.
With special permission, Teresa and Rachel took epic photographs in the Cary Academy Theater – they didn’t want to leave! It was different being in the theater during the summer with the students away, but they had a great time playing with the lighting and posing. Then it was on to beautiful Fletcher Park for portraits including her princess tiara, Cinderella blue dress, and Lilly.
A few weeks later, Rachel and her family met with Teresa and viewed the video compilation of Rachel’s portraits. Amazing! They were then able to see all of them as matted proofs on the studio gallery wall. Rachel chose her favorite for the yearbook. Teresa had designed some beautiful wall art groupings for their home and they chose a grouping of 3 canvases. For a special milestone keepsake, they chose a custom-designed linen album of 20-30 portraits. They also got their full collection of digital files to enjoy.
Rachel has graduated and is off to pursue her dreams in New York. We wish her all the best and can’t wait to see her future successes.
