Stephanie | Braden River High School Class of 2013 – Bradenton Senior Photography | Christina Z Photography

Stephanie is a Class of 2013 Early Graduate at Braden River High School. Upon meeting Stephanie I knew her Senior Portrait Session was going to be different, different good. She is an edgy girl and I was excited to show that in her senior photos. Stephanie enjoys photography, cosmetology, and the outdoors. She was going for an urban look for her senior photos, but also wanted to include nature and her outdoorsy-ness (is that a word? it is now).

2014 High School Senior Photos

I was lucky again! Another gorgeous high school senior photo session! Grace is a 2014 Lakewood Ranch High School Senior, and she is stunning. Grace enjoys working with little  kids, babysitting, volunteering at her church’s A.C.M.E. program, spending time with her friends, and focusing on school and her future.

Grace was going for a natural look for her senior photos, which is why the beach was perfect for her! We ran into a bit of rain during her senior photo session, but she rocked it anyways! Grace says,”My experience was very nice, my wonderful photographer was very sweet, and the spot on the beach that she chose was perfect!” And no I didn’t pay her to say that, hehehe.

Grace brought 4 outfits to her session, and we used 3 of them. It gave her 3 very different looks for her senior photos and was the perfect variety. She didn’t overdo it on the accessories, kept it simple with a watch, bracelet, and earrings. It was the perfect touch. Her advice on how to prepare, “Just take a few hours to get reach and make sure your hair and makeup is how you want it, and make sure you have all of your outfits planned out in advance or you will be in my position, rushing to the store the day before my session! Not a smart idea.” One of my favorite parts of planning a senior portrait session, is when they send me pictures of their outfit ideas and chooses. I really love helping them plan, PLUS I love getting ideas from their closets.. hehe. Grace wore a pair of Hollister shorts and a shimmery tank top from Bealls for her first look. For her second look, she wore a long maxi dress from Forever 21 and sandals from Charlotte Russe. And for her third look, her dress was from Guess. Her watch and bracelet were from Fossil.

Most of the time, my Seniors are a little nervous and a lot anxious for their senior photos. I really try to make sure they are comfortable right from the beginning, and I think it starts with all our conversations leading up to the photo session. Grace says, “I had never had a photo shoot done like this so I was a little nervous, but as soon as I got there I felt very confident because my photographer helped me get into the feel of things.”

Grace’s advice to anyone getting their senior photos taken, “Just act natural and pick a place you are most comfortable. Don’t overdo it, the more natural it is, the better, in my opinion.” I agree with her completely. It really comes across in your photos if you are comfortable, so I love to make sure that the location really suits the clients!

Faith | 2014 Lakewood Ranch High School | Bradenton Florida High School Senior Photographer

Faith is a 2014 Lakewood Ranch High School Senior and CZP Senior Rep. She’s also the Captain of the LRHS Varsity Cheer Team. We had a lot of fun with her senior photos. She really wanted to show her bubbly and outgoing personality.

Faith brought along 3 outfits, which was perfect. She was able to show her casual, sporty, and classy look. She didn’t over do it with accessories either. She wanted to keep her looks very natural right down to hair and makeup.

“If you’re doing a more fancy or wedding type session, go and get your hair done. But if its senior pictures, do your hair yourself because that’s how all your friends see you.”

Faith used some clothes she already had, which included her cheerleading uniform and homecoming dress. She did go to Charlotte Russe for the white shirt and brown belt, which was such a great choice. I always like to tell my clients, especially seniors, you don’t have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. You most likely have the perfect outfit in your closet.

Faith is a beach girl, so that’s why we decided to do her senior portraits on Coquina Beach. It is one of my favorite locations due to the scenery’s variety. Although it was windy we were able to work with it. Faith agrees; it looked kind of cool with her hair blowing in the wind. Not to mention the sunset was gorgeous! I love a great Florida beach sunset.

Faith was really nervous about looking awkward since she had never posed for pictures but they turned out great! She was taking direction and running with it. She is definitely a natural.

“It was a lot of fun and I was very impressed with the outcome!”

Her one piece of advice to give to anyone getting their senior photos taken,
“GO TO CHRISTINA Z PHOTOGRAPHY!”
