Senior pictures with Alex from Crystal Lake Central

nfocus photos - senior pictures in Crystal Lake, Algonquin, Barrington and Cary, IL

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!!

Today we’re featuring photos from our senior photo shoot with Hannah! Hannah’s a senior at Harry D Jacobs High School in Algonquin and one of our Class of 2019 Model Reps!

We had the chance to work with Hannah twice, once in the studio and once outside. In both cases she  brought great clothes and a fantastic attitude. We got some great weather too and her sessions were a total blast to do.

If you know Hannah, make sure to mention her name at your senor photo consultation and you’ll save $50 on your own photo session!

We had a chance to talk to Hannah about her nFocus experience. Here’s what she had to say…

nfocus: How did you first hear about the nFocus Photos Model Rep program?

Hannah: I first heard about the nfocus Model Rep program through friends and school!

n: What was your favorite part of your photo shoots?

h: My favorite parts of the photo shoots were posing and overall just having a good time.

n: Did you feel prepared for your shoots? Were you nervous at all?

H: I didn’t really know what to expect during my first shoot, so I was a little more nervous than duing my summer shoot. By the time I got to my summer shoot I felt very prepared and knew what to expect!

n: Do you feel like you were adequately coached through the shoots?

h: I did feel like I was adequately coached through the shoots because you and your assistant helped me out with poses and facial expressions, so I didn’t feel confused at all.

n: Did the final photos turn out the way you had hoped?

h: The final photos turned out even better than I had hoped! I didn’t really know what to expect and was hoping that I wouldn’t look too awkward in any of the pictures, but with your help I felt as though I became more comfortable in front of the camera, making my pictures turn out better than I thought!

n: Did you enjoy being a Model Rep?

h: Yes, I really liked the fun environment of the shoots and how you and your assistants really made sure I was comfortable throughout it all!

n: Would you recommend the Model Rep to your friends who are Juniors?

h: I would absolutely recommend the nFocus Model Rep Program to my younger friends.

n: Is there anything you wish you’d done differently either to prepare or during your shoots?

h: During the first shoot I didn’t prepare my outfits ahead of time which made the day of very stressful, so I wish I had prepared a day or two ahead. Also I wish I had practiced different facial expressions in a mirror at home before because it gets you comfortable making all sorts of faces.

n: Did your friends ever comment about your photos?

h: My friends commented on my photos, always complimenting me or the picture quality itself!

n: What are you looking forward to your senior year?

h: I am looking forward to choosing a college and getting to spend one last year making memories with my close friends.

n: What are your plans after high school?

h: I plan on going to college and hopefully moving to Italy!

n: What do you want to be when you grow up?

h: I would love to be a math or English teacher! Also, something in forensics would be cool.

A: Not my first favorite song, but my first favorite artist was Taylor Swift. When I was younger I loved her music so much.

n: What do you want to be when you grow up?

A: I hope to someday be a nurse practitioner. As of right now I’m on the path for that.

n: If you had a week to go anywhere, where would you go?

A: Bora Bora! Just relaxing there in the turquoise waters sounds so beautiful, especially with family.

nfocus photos - senior photos in Crystal Lake and Hampshire, IL

Today we’re featuring high school senior pictures with Lilly who was one of our Class of 2019 Model Reps!

As a Model Rep we photographed Lilly twice, a studio shoot during the Spring of her Junior year and then a summer shoot when she was officially a senior. We also did a Clueless themed photo shoot with Lilly and some of her friends that was completely amazeballs!

Lilly was one of the sweetest seniors we’ve ever worked with and was very enthusiastic about the process. We ended up with so many great photos and you can check out a bunch of them here in this post!

We had a chance to talk to Lilly about her nFocus model rep experience and here’s what she had to say…

nfocus: Thank you for being one of our Class of 2019 Model Reps this year! As a Rep you had the chance to participate in multiple photo shoots. What was your favorite part?

Lilly: I loved getting to do a photoshoot with my friends that was “Clueless” themed. We got to pick out really fun outfits and the pictures turned out awesome!

n: Did you feel prepared for your photo shoots? Were you nervous at all?

l: I guess I was a little nervous at first for the indoor shoot, since it was my first time taking professional photos since I was really little. But once I got there, Nick made it a really comfortable environment and it was so much fun!

n: Do you feel like you were adequately coached through the shoots? Did you ever feel awkward or unsure of yourself?

l: Poses definitely do not come naturally for me, so Nick had to coach me throughout a lot of it. Sometimes I would do a pose that I felt really awkward about, but seeing them after, I realize that it actually looked awesome!

n: Your parents were at your outdoor shoot. Did you feel like it was a good experience for the three of you?

l: Having my parents at the outdoor shoot really helped me! With my dad making jokes pretty much the whole time, I felt like my pictures looked way more relaxed. I especially have to thank my mom for helping me with my outfit changes and being there to help however she could at all of my photoshoots.

n: Did the final photos turn out the way you had hoped?

l: My final photos turned out better than I could’ve ever expected! The way that they were shot and edited were so beautiful and I am so excited to be able to show these to my family at graduation next year.

n: Did you enjoy being a Model Rep? What did you like about the experience?

l: I loved being a Model Rep! It was so much fun to see pictures posted of me on something other than my own Instagram page. It made me feel like a real model and I got so excited whenever someone would comment something on a post.

n: Is there anything you wish you’d done differently either to prepare or during your shoots?

l: There is nothing I would have done differently. I think that it all went great!

n: What types of things did your friends say about your photos?

l: A lot of my friends commented on my photos! I had a lot of friends ask where they were done because they said that they were so beautiful.

n: Would you recommend nFocus to your friends?

l: I would 100% recommend nFocus to my friends. It was so much fun to pick out outfits and go to the studio and your personality really shines through in the pictures.

n: What are you looking forward to your senior year?

l: My senior year I am really looking forward to the football games. As a senior you really get to go all out with costumes and spirit!

n: What’s something most people don’t know about you?

l: Something most people don’t know about me is that when I was 8 years old I opened a pie company called “Grandma’s Pies”. I created a website where neighbors could order pies and I would bake them and deliver them on my bike.

n: Who was you favorite musical artist when you were in Junior High?

l: When I was in Junior High I was OBSESSED with broadway musicals. Legally Blonde was and still is definitely a favorite.

n: What’s your favorite spot on the planet?

Bella was one of our Class of 2018 Model Reps and we photographed her in the studio last Spring as well. You can see some of the photos from that session here.

Bella was originally scheduled to be photographed outside last fall, but the weather just never cooperated. So glad we waited because we ended up with a perfect day for her senior shoot!

Bella was very at ease in front of the camera and a lot of fun to work with. She brought great clothes and had her makeup was done to perfection!

Check out some of the photos from her session here… They’re amazing!!

Today we’re featuring photos from our Clueless themed photo shoot with Class of 2019 Senior Model Rep Lilly and her friends Alyssa, Hailey and Allan!

Lilly and her friends are all involved in theater at Cary Grove High School and wanted to try something a little different! So they scoured their closets for some 70’s looking clothes, grabbed their phones, purses and cosmetics and we did a photo shoot based on the movie Clueless!

Had a blast working with this group out at Cary Grove High School and we ended up with some totally cool photos!!

To see more photos from this session check out our Clueless album!
