Senior VIP Valentine’s Photoshoot 2022

February 14, 2022

Seniors

I have absolutely loved spending this year with my group of Senior VIPs (if you’re wondering what this gorgeous group of girls does with me, you can learn more here!). As part of the membership, we have a holiday event and this year I chose…VALENTINE’S DAY!

I’ve been really into the “studio” look for photos so when I found some inspiration of simple photos with lots of expressions I knew it would be perfect for this group with BIG, fun personalities.

So I broke out the pink backdrop, put together a breakfast themed “charcuterie” board (with the help of my best friend Rachael), and dressed Dune in his valentine’s themed bandana.

The best part of the day was everyone giving suggestions for what expressions to make! I typically photograph just smiles and laughs so it was a ton of fun to be truly playful and get all different kinds of faces. I love how you can see their personalities when the images are all put together!!

You’ll be seeing more of the backdrop in the future because I am officially OBSESSED.

Happy Galentine’s Day!!!
