Today I’m featuring images from our senior photo shoot with Alex who’s a senior at Crystal Lake Central! She’s also a gymnast, so we made sure to do a few photos back in the studio where we could incorporate her athletic talents as well.
Alex brought great clothes, a cool Jack Russell Terrier named Jack and a super fun attitude! Throughout our session she made sure to tell me which photos she liked and which she didn’t.
Personally, I love when seniors do this! How else are you supposed to know if you’re on the right track? Good news is – as you can see from the photos posted here – we were definitely on the right track!
Check out these photos from Alex’s session and then check out what she had to say about her nFocus experience!
nFocus: There are a lot of photographers out there and I really appreciate you choosing nFocus for your senior photos! How did you hear about nFocus and what made you call to schedule a consultation?
Alex: I first heard about nFocus through instagram. My Mom initially chose another photographer, but I insisted we go to you because I personally enjoyed your photos and style much more!
n: Did the consultation help? Did you feel prepared for your senior shoot?
A: The consultation was very clear and concise and was very helpful in terms of being prepared and not wasting time when it came to the day of the shoot.
n: During your shoot, did you ever feel over or under coached?
A: I felt very well coached by you as I am not the most photogenic person. **Photographer’s note: The second part of this is not even a little bit true!**
n: What was your favorite part of your senior shoot?
A: My favorite part of the shoot was checking the photos on your camera! It made me excited to see how they would turn out. I also definitely enjoyed the compliments – I felt as if it gave me more confidence.
n: Your Mom was with you throughout the entire process, from the initial consultation right through your ordering session. Did you feel like it was a good bonding experience for the two of you?
A: Definitely! I feel that me and my mom bonded over having this experience and were able to spend some quality time together.
n: Did the final photos turn out the way you had hoped?
A: The final photos turned out way better than I had expected and I surprisingly liked more than I thought!
n: A lot of your friends are probably having a friend with a nice camera take their senior photos. What would you tell those friends about having a pro take your photos versus a friend?
A: I would tell my friends that a photagrapher is much more experienced and does all the work for you so there is less hassle on your part.
n: Are you looking forward to being a senior?
A: Yes! I am looking forward to being a senior and moving on to the next chapter in my life at college!
n: What’s something most people don’t know about you?
A: A lot of people don’t know that I am half Hispanic.
n: Do you remember your first favorite song?
A: My first favorite song as a kid was Beautiful Soul by Jessie McCartney
n: If you could get away for a week with a friend to anyplace in the world, where would you go?
A: For sure Fiji!!
