I don’t normally do senior portraits, but when Tim called me about photographing his youngest daughter (who’s about to graduate high school), I was honored. I met Tim for the first time last year at WPPI at the Kodak booth and we instantly clicked. He introduced me to Portra 400 last year, and this year, he introduced me to Portra 800 and at this shoot, he introduced me to Portra 160. The later two are now my new favorite films! I love the skin tones and contrast. For Sara, I wanted to capture her free spirit – her transition from a teen into a young adult. This is the start of that part of her life where the fun of being youthful is perfectly balanced with the freedoms of adulthood.
Congrats, Sara, on your upcoming high school graduation! You have accomplished so much and a wonderful adventure awaits you in college! I can see how proud your whole family is of you.
