November sessions can have challenges for sure. And this one was quite cold and windy. In fact, it was the coldest senior photoshoot I have ever been on! I was fine, since I wore my puffy, down coat and had hand warmers in my pockets, but who wants to bundle up for senior pics? Not Kathrine! No puffy winter coat pics for her--especially since she brought such cute outfits!
Katherine was simply amazing and such a trouper, even though I imagine she was freezing! We did start off the session outside of the elements with a few industrial warehouse "elevator" shots from one of the buildings downtown--which was an idea that came from her dad, who had access to the building. Great idea, dad--those shots turned out great! But then after those few minutes spent inside, it was almost an hour and a half braving temps in the 30's. Kathrine handled the chilly, wind blown weather just beautifully. Honestly, she looks perfectly comfortable, warm, and engaging--not to mention stunning! Not sure how she pulled it off (I would have been shivering and clattering my teeth without my winter wear), but she certainly did pull it off like a pro and these pictures are proof positive. The end result is absolutely gorgeous and worth every second we spent outside wandering the downtown area. We even caught a few twinkly lights and some pretty holiday vibes with this late senior season shoot, which was a nice bonus for braving the temperamental November weather!
l love the outfits Kathrine pulled together. A nice variety of colors and looks. The unique gold dangly earrings, necklace, and white boots were perfection and photographed so well. I had fun planning out which outfits to wear for certain spots. Just adore the brown checkered skirt and cream sweater with Art-Find Tile and the stonework of the courthouse, the striped shirt and jeans in front of the beauty shop and the alley and streetscapes, the pink plaid on the plaza, and the blue sweater with the warm, glow-y window storefront and the rich brown wood backdrop!
Kathrine is active in band, choir, and drama club at school. She is planning on majoring in Music and/or Elementary Education. Hope she has a ton of fun her senior year and I wish her the best in college life next year!
Thanks, Kathrine, for asking me to be your senior photographer! It was a pleasure spending the afternoon clicking away with you in my viewfinder! I couldn't be happier with the way the session turned out and I hope these cold weather pics warm your heart in the years to come!
