Shriya was planning to spend much of the summer before her senior year visiting family in India. Before she left, she contacted us to plan her senior portraits Cary. She had some senior pictures ideas and we were excited to meet her.
Senior Portraits Cary: Hindu temple, Gizzmo the dog, and a local grill
We met with Shriya and learned that her senior pictures ideas included portraits at her temple, in a traditional lehenga. And, of course, some pictures with her adorable dog Gizmo. Shriya loves simple, clean lines and bright colors. In school she excels in History and English, and loves to read. We loved her senior pictures ideas and planned her senior portrait fusion session for late August just before school started.
After a busy summer of travel, we me with Shriya at her home to help select her outfits, including a beautiful traditional lehenga. Her family had gotten special permission for us to photograph at her temple, so we included that in our session plan.
On a warm August evening, we met Shriya and her family at her temple. Her purple lehenga was beautiful against the white temple in the background, and we were especially careful to honor the temple’s restrictions on what we could photograph.
A few days later, Shriya had the rest of her session in downtown Raleigh, starting at the Roast Grill. Her favorite part was the Coke in the small classic glass bottle. We also got pictures of her with her dog, Gizmo, at her home. It is clear they have a special love for each other. We captured it all in the behind-the-scenes video, with especially stunning drone footage at the temple.
The big reveal was eagerly anticipated. It started with a showing of Shriya’s behind-the-scenes video, followed by a slide show of all of her portraits (over 75!). Using our gallery wall, the family chose her yearbook portraits. They narrowed down the portraits to a favorite 30 or so to include in a custom-designed keepsake album with deep matte pages and a sophisticated leather cover. With Teresa’s help they selected two canvases, and two curved metal prints as beautiful tangible reminders of Shriya’s senior portrait session. Her senior portrait ideas had come to life!
In the fall, we delivered their custom album and professionally installed their wall art. They were thrilled to tears!
We loved getting to know Shriya and are excited to hear of her next adventures.
