Elsa F (Cary Academy Class of 2020) was ready for her senior portraits Cary.  We did portraits for her older sister a few years earlier, so we were thrilled to continue the tradition!

Senior Portraits Cary: Reflecting on the year

We met with Elsa to get acquainted.  Elsa shared that she used to be a figure skater but suffered an injury.  She loves to hang out with her friends near the water because it is such a calm place.  In school, she loves environmental science.

Elsa was excited for her senior portraits Cary.  She loved the idea of a natural setting with flowers and perhaps a touch of urban.  We chose a date for her clothing design meeting, and her session.

We met Elsa at the NC Museum of Art, which is a surprisingly beautiful, sprawling, natural campus.  Elsa was casually glamorous in her jean skirt and simple black top.

And a beautiful natural field was the perfect combination of sunlight and wildflowers.

For a touch of urban, we used a reflective wall at the museum for several stunning portraits.

Elsa did all the poses perfectly the first time, even if they felt a little silly.  Especially the “cowgirl” and the “wobbly cruise ship walk”!  And the results were beautiful!  See it all in this amazing behind-the-scenes video:

Elsa and her family returned to the studio a few weeks later to view the portraits and video.  Elsa chose her yearbook portraits, which we submitted for her.  Teresa helped them select a portrait for a framed print.  Teresa also recalled the archive of her sister Lydia’s images, and they selected one for a matching framed print, resulting in a beautiful wall art grouping.  Elsa also chose her favorite portraits for a keepsake album.

Elsa and her family took advantage of our free family session for our senior portrait clients in the fall of her senior year.  They chose an image for a framed family canvas, and some gift items and cards for the holidays.
