Beaverton High School Senior Portrait
Angelina is a Senior at Beaverton High School. She’s also on my AGP Senior Squad for the Class of 2017! And sometimes she’s my assistant at photoshoots because she is quite the photographer herself!
Angelina’s middle name is Rose and she loves roses so the Rose Garden was the perfect place for her. We’d planned her session for late July and about a week before her shoot she emailed me some news. She was going to get her braces off in August! SO HUGE! I don’t know about you but I didn’t love my years with braces so I knew we had to postpone her shoot until after they came off. Originally she thought October and that was going to be too late for her yearbook deadline so it was fantastic news that they were coming off early! So we rescheduled for the end of August.
That time of year, I was worried there wouldn’t be much in bloom, but we lucked out! There were still tons of roses in bloom. Pro tip about the Rose Garden – it’s a busy place. Give yourself extra time. At peak times, parking can be difficult to find and once you’re in the garden you’ll have to wait for people to get out of the background of your shots. Or go super early in the am and have easy parking and very few people but doubt a lot of teenagers would wanna be up and ready to shoot by 7am. We went for a sunset shoot so it was really busy while Angelina was getting her makeup done by my MUA Haley. But about an hour later as the sun was dropping it was less populated.
Angelina is also an archer so we’d planned to go up to the archery range above the Rose Garden but we ran out of light. We met up a couple weeks later to take the shots of her with the bow and arrow. It was super fun and I was only slightly afraid for my life. Just kidding! I just loved her outfit idea for these shots!
I just loved this senior portrait session! We had a blast and took some amazing pictures! Thank you Angelina for choosing me to be your senior photographer!
