What can I say about Hannah? She is adorable, smart, funny and talented! It took three days to tell Hannah’s story. We started her Washougal High School Senior Portrait Session in Vancouver, Washington. Hannah, her very talented mom, and I carefully planned the session. I am so thrilled that they chose Connie Mintz Photography!
On the first day, we started at the historical downtown Vancouver, WA building, House of Providence. Since Hannah is a ballet dancer with the Columbia Dance Studio, she wanted to incorporate dance into her session.
After a quick change of clothes, we captured these stunning images as well!
At the end of day one, I was intent on using this amazing window light for her Washougal High School class portrait. I wanted everyone to see Hannah’s beautiful eyes with nothing less than gorgeous light in them! Hannah wanted to incorporate a very special bracelet that was given to her by her grandmother.
We tried to catch the sunset in tall grass after the downtown shoot, but we were too late! We watched the weather and planned a sunset shoot in tall grass (this was on Hannah’s wish list!). Hannah’s mom has a gift arranging flowers. How adorable is this bouquet of sunflowers with the white dress and wheat colored grass at Salmon Creek? I knew exactly where to take Hannah for this is one of my favorite spots that I have greatly enjoyed as a landscape photographer (Link to Gallery)!
We would be amiss not to include a studio session with Hannah dancing. She has been studying dance at Columbia Dance Studio in Vancouver, Wa for many years! We chose a dramatic lighting setup using “edge” lighting. Hannah came to my studio for this session.
On this same day, she brought her brother to the session, so we popped him in for a sister/brother shot as a Mother’s Day surprise photo for mom!
I enjoyed working with Hannah and her mom so much! I cannot wait to see what amazing things she does after high school and I wish her the best of luck at the University of Washington, where she will be entering as a Freshman, in the Fall!
