photo shoot ~ briana senior portraits

B010Can we just talk for a second about these gorgeous girls who are graduating in the class of 2014??  I mean, just scroll back through my blog posts last week if you need further proof of the loveliness of this year’s senior girls! :)  Anyway, this is Briana, and I have to start off this post by giving her a huge shout out for being an absolute trooper during our session!  See, it was freezing cold the day we did this shoot, and Briana never even flinched at the cold.  Not even when she was wearing a little sleeveless top did she complain at all.  I was so impressed! :)

You might recognize this cool OKC wall from Hannah’s session I posted the other day.  Normally I don’t like going to unique locations too often, especially for similar types of sessions, but Briana loved this wall – and I am actually really glad I ended up shooting there again, because I think this is a great visual example of how much lighting affects pictures.  The day Hannah and I shot here, it was warm and sunny, and the sun had just dropped behind the nearby buildings.  The day Briana and I shot here, it was a cold, cloudy day, and it was an hour or so before sunset.  And you can see, the light was a lot more blue this day, whereas the other day it was more golden.  So there’s your free photography lesson for the day. ;)  It’s all about the light!! :)

B001B018Since it was so cold, as I mentioned, we had to stop and get some coffee to warm up while we were shooting.

bc6B034Briana absolutely loves downtown OKC {so do I! :)}, so we did the majority of her session there.  This was one of my favorite little spots we found.

B044B049B061B071bc5B079I used to play around with textures a lot more, and I’ve kind of been missing it, so I pulled one out to use here.  Senior pix are always good for experimenting a little, right? :)

bc4We ended our session in The Paseo district.  I completely loved the windows and colors there that night.  We shot until after the sun had dropped, but the lights around The Paseo allowed us to keep going for a bit, and i just love the results!  So dreamy.


You are such a rockstar! :)  I really, really loved doing your session.  I have also enjoyed getting to know you more over the last year or so.  You are a sweetheart – beautiful inside and out!
