Have you Gooled “Senior Photographers Near Me”? It can be a HUGE undertaking to find a senior photographer that fits YOUR needs. Izzy is a member of my class of 2021 majorSENIORS Crew. She and her family chose me back in December of 2019 (can’t believe I’ve known them almost a year) and I was honored to be a part of her senior journey.
Obviously, class of 2020 and 2021 senior year doesn’t look quite like the rest, and by the time I have the majorSENIORS Crew senior session, I’ve usually worked with each senior 3-5 times, one of those times being our BIG spring senior shoot. COVID jacked all of that up, or should I say, politicians (I digress). Once quarantine was lifted, we headed into the woods to capture Izzy’s senior pictures.
Izzy chose Chickies Rock in Columbia, PA for her session. We were able to have a beautiful day that wasn’t too hot and ended up with some beautiful light for her session.
Have you thought of a fun location but not sure how you’ll change clothes for your senior photos? Not to worry. We set up my portable changing tent right on the path in the woods and Izzy was able to change up her look without having to hike back to the car to change. While we may have been right on the path, this allowed Izzy to have privacy to change. The changing tent goes everywhere with me! Well, at least to all of my sessions!
It was a beautiful day along the river and there were many people out and about. With us having been stuck at home for a while, hiking was one of the few things “allowed” so people took advantage of the ability to get out.
The only downfall to shooting in the woods is that you definitely lose light MUCH faster than on the shore of the river or most other places. While it’s nice to have the tree coverage when the sun is up high, as it starts to set, it’s time to wrap up and head home or change locations to some place more open!
You can see the difference in light in the images above. The image on the right was out at the edge of the trees with beautiful light still available. We started walking towards the car to wrap up and were totally under tree cover for the image on the right. You can see how dark the background is. If it wasn’t for my off camera flash, this image wouldn’t have been possible at all.
