When I received the email request for this session, one thing stayed with me – the mom of these gorgeous sisters hoped that I can capture the ages they are at in a simple and pretty way…Alex and Abby are 15 year old twins and Ava is 3 1/2. Parks have been a very popular location choice but it was late February in Houston and still somewhat gloomy. Besides, I wanted the girls ages to thrive in the setup I picked. So we went to Charles Bender High School in Old Humble, TX. The good news was no other photographers had scheduled their sessions for that day there (it’s a go to place for senior portraits), the bad news – the rustic red iron staircase that I was eyeing for our session had been removed over the week! Yet, there were many more interesting background options that the historic school offered us.
An aged door and a rusty railing:
Brick walls and beatup concrete steps:
Antique metal shutters:
But don’t get me wrong – it was not the location that kept us going! The girls’ bond, fun spirit and light heartedness shined in every image I took. It was addictive – we ran over the allotted time and I could have kept going for a lot longer capturing their attentiveness to one another.
