What Do You Do With Your Senior Portraits?

I've been busy lately with designing and finalizing albums for the class of 2019.  This is something I absolutely love to do!  I remember being afraid of albums in the beginning of MKP.  And now it's something I believe we're known for, which makes my heart happy.  You see, one of the things I love most about my business is that it pushes me through my fears.  And in this case, among others, I find I had nothing to fear at all.  I actually love the very thing I feared!Anyway, I see so many who are thrilled to get hundreds of images from their photographer.  This seems especially true with high school seniors.  I see many images shared on social media.  And it breaks my heart.  Why?  Because I fear that's about all that will be done with those images. Oh, maybe they will print out a gift sized print or two, or possibly a few more to share with family.I mean, so many of the poses and expressions are the same!  Why are hundreds upon hundreds images needed?  Well, here at MKP I shoot for the album.  It's what the best wedding photographers do, so why not a portrait photographer as well?  As I'm working with a client at their session, I try for variety of imagery of course.  In the beginning I work to determine the client's best side.  Their best smile.  Their best "serious look".  I do ...

JP Knapp Senior Photos - Elizabeth City Senior Portraits

What Do You Do With Your Senior Portraits?

Continuing with sharing the backlog of sessions we have, we thought we'd share Brandi's senior portraits.  Brandi graduated from J.P. Knapp Early College in Currituck earlier this year.  Class of 2018.  As a senior model, she had several sessions, including downtown Elizabeth City, a farm in Currituck, and the beach in the Outer Banks, as well as here in our Moyock studio.  We'll start with a few favorites from Brandi's studio session.  This sweet girl was so fun to work with!  She took direction so well for her posing and expressions. We had a fabulous time in Elizabeth City, although the weather was not being kind.  If I recall correctly, we had to reschedule.  And it then stormed on my way to the session.  However, all was well by the start of the session.  Yay!This first image is one of my all time favorites, and a framed portrait hangs in our office meeting space. From Elizabeth City, we headed to a friend's farm and barn in Currituck.  We have so many clients who want some rustic images.  I was grateful for the crops because....hello gorgeous!  The golden tones were perfect with her hair.Brandi's makeup was on point!!  Again, another framed portrait for our meeting space. Brandi's mom, Heather, joined us for her beach session in the Outer Banks.  There were so many favorites ...

What Do You Do With Your Senior Portraits?

I think it's about time, now that we're photographing the class of 2019, we finally get around to sharing images from the class of 2018, no?  Geez - so little time, so much to do!I believe Ashlea was our first 2018 model to sign up.  (You know, back when we had a senior model experience program.)  I am so super excited to have had the opportunity to work with Ashlea and her family!  I've watched this beauty grow since I first began the business, or at least shortly thereafter.  This wasn't my first time photographing her, but it had been too long since she'd been in front of my camera.Ashlea is not shy in front of my lens.  I love her sweet, fun, caring personality!  She's comfortable with who she is, and I adore this about her!  Ashlea's loves include her family, Lord of the Rings, theater, dance, 1950's style clothing, and vintage styling.  She has such a big heart.  Ashlea has contacted me when she's observed others not being kind to my son, and she does what she can to protect him and others.  She's so talented - I've so enjoyed watching her perform. As a senior experience model, Ashlea had several portrait sessions, including in the studio and Elizabeth City.  I love the locations her father found in Elizabeth City, and I like that we were able to include that vintage vibe Ashlea likes.Ashlea and her parents ...
