NAPLES PHOTOGRAPHER

As a Naples photographer, I get to work with a lot of amazing clients. This gorgeous girl is no different. Meet Kristina. Kristina came to me and had a very specific idea of how she wanted her senior portraits to look. She asked for them to be simple and neutral – going so far as to request a white background for most of them. She sent me some images she had seen on the Internet that stood out to her and the common denominator was that they were clean and modern and focused solely on the subject. I did some location scouting to come up with a white backdrop (without having to be inside a studio). In the process, I found this building… We had amazing lighting on this particular day and with that white building being such an automatic reflector it was a match made in heaven. This delicious environment lasted for all of 20 minutes – before a massive downpour came from our of nowhere. Ugh! Florida weather at its finest. Talk about a stunning smile. Such a gorgeous girl! When the rain decided to start pouring down on us, we ultimately had to make an executive decision to cancel the remainder of the session and reschedule it. We shot the 2nd part of her session on a different day and thankfully we had much better luck when it came to the rain. Kristina will be attending YALE UNIVERSITY this Fall to begin her journey into college. How awesome that she’s attending Yale! I encouraged her to go ahead and bring that “Y” sweater with her when she put together the wardrobe ideas for her shoot. Kristina graduated from The Community School of Naples here in Florida just last week. I was able...

SENIOR DESTINATION PHOTOGRAPHER

SENIOR DESTINATION PHOTOGRAPHER {Naples and Las Vegas} Many of you know that I recently announced that I was excited to entertain the idea of being a senior destination photographer. Angie Seaman Photography is now offering Senior destination shoots across the country and abroad. As a senior destination photographer, I’ll be traveling to different cities and states to capture epic one of a kind senior portraits for you. In order to promote that offering, myself, my hair and make-up artist, Janea Soliven of JA Make-Up Artistry, my oldest son, and his girlfriend all flew out to Las Vegas to shoot the promo images and the behind the scenes videos for the senior destination options. Sophia, my sons girlfriend of a year and a half, was our model for the shoots. They’ll both be seniors next year so this was a perfect time to capture her. We began the first day of shooting up in the the desert mountain side within the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. I’ve been to Vegas several times and shot in the desert each time we’re there. However, I had never been to the Valley of Fire before so this was real treat for me. To say that this place is beautiful would be a massive understatement. I couldn’t get over the continual beauty as I looked around me. The red rock formations in the Valley of Fire are so incredibly ornate and every square inch leaves a new location to discover. I could’ve spent days in there. Literally days – and never gotten bored. The head piece that you see in these images was made especially for this shoot to match the parachute dress I had her wear. We used the parachute for part of the shoot and then we removed it for the rest. Either way, she was stunning! And boy did we have some endless laughs during this trip. The fun just never stopped! We had special access to the park on this particular day so the areas where we shot were closed off to everyone except us. We felt pretty special to say the least. 🙂 I loved the Valley of Fire so much that we’ll be definitely going back there this coming Spring when I go back to Las Vegas for our annual WPPI industry conference. If you or someone you know is interested in having their senior photography session shot in Las Vegas, you know where to find me. We’re taking a limited number of seniors back with us for the next trip. Our Las Vegas shoot consisted of three different locations so I’ll be breaking these blog write ups into 3-5 different posts over the next week or two. There are just too many amazing images to share all in one post. I wanted to start with the Valley of Fire images because that was our day one. I can’t wait to share the other shoot locations with all of you and the images from those spots. We had an absolute blast and I can’t wait to share these same experiences with other seniors that are interested in the destination sessions as well. HAIR AND MAKE-UP And a HUGE thank you again to Janea for coming along with us on this crazy journey to do the hair and make-up for our senior sessions. Her work is incredible and I think these images prove that. We love you Janea! Thank you for joining me on the first of many to come senior destination photography trips. XOXO,...

SARAH {MARCO ISLAND, FLORIDA SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER}

Let’s talk about this gorgeous girl. Even though she’s not from here, we still shot her session here in Naples, Florida near the Marco Island, Florida area of town. As a senior photographer, I embrace out of state clients and local senior clients here in Florida as well. Seriously. Could she be any more perfect? Like really. Not only is she stunning but she’s from my hometown. Indiana. A Hoosier. I love that! Love me some fellow Indy peeps. Oh…and on top of all that. She’s also a photographer. Yeah! I told you she was awesome! 🙂 We shot Sarah’s session during Christmas/New Years. She came down all the way from Indiana and we spent several hours documenting her amazing self in a few different locations around town. Can we also just take a minute to talk about this girls hair??? So.Not.Fair. Like with all of my other senior clients, Janea Soliven, of JA Make-Up Artistry is our H&MUA for my shoots. She did a fabulous job with Sarah. Her hair and make-up suits Sarah perfectly and leaves her with a natural and clean look that highlights her already amazing features. We finished up Sarah’s session at the beach. I had a blast working with Sarah and had an even better time unboxing all of her senior imagery that she ordered from her actual shoot. I was like a kid at Christmas time when it all arrived. Sarah, thank you for allowing me to document this chapter of your life. You’re a true stunner and I can’t wait to see where these next few years take you. And when I’m home next time, we need to plan a day to just go out and shoot for fun while there in good ol’ Indy. I appreciate you sending me the images of downtown Indianapolis to help aide in my homesick mentality. It always helps to feel a bit closer to home by way of images. XOXO!...
