Rachel’s senior photo shoot in Cary, IL

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

Today we’re featuring senior photos from our sessions with Rachel who’s a senior at Cary Grove High School. I photographed her older sister in 2014 and was excited when Rachel decided to be one of our Class of 2018 Model Reps!

As a Model Rep we photographed Rachel twice, a studio shoot during the Spring of her Junior year and then a summer shoot when she was officially a senior. With two shoots like that you have plenty of time to try different things and get really comfortable in front of the camera.

And Rachel was fantastic in front of the camera! She brought a bunch of great outfits that reflected her style and killer dimples that the camera loved! By the time we got to our outdoor session, I don’t think we took a single bad picture!

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

nFocus: How would you describe your photo shoots?
Rachel: I would describe the photo shoots as really fun. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I loved the whole experience.

n: What was your favorite part of your photo shoots?
R: My favorite part of the shoots was using different props or backgrounds like in the Hollows and Downtown Cary that I had never thought could be good spots for photos.

n: Some of your friends may want to have a friend take their senior photos, or their Mom’s friend with a nice camera. What would you say to them about your experience working with nFocus?
R: To the people who just have a friend take their photos, I think they miss out on the experience. It is all very professional at nFocus but everything was still fun with incredible photos at the end.

n: Your Mom was at your shoot. Did you feel like it was a good bonding experience for the two of you? Why or why not?
R: I think having my mom at the shoot was a good bonding experience because it was a different environment for us to be in and I was able to play off of her reactions to things.

n: Did the final photos turn out the way you had hoped?
R: The final photos turned out a lot better than I hoped. After my sister’s senior photos a couple years ago, I knew they would turn out amazing but I was kind of surprised by just how much I loved them.

n: What did you like or dislike about your experience as a Model Rep?
R: I absolutely loved being a model rep because it was something completely different from what I have done in the past and I loved seeing how the photos turned out from both the indoor and outdoor shoots.

n: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
R: In 10 years, I would like to be married and starting a family but career wise, I would like to be living in Europe and working in either a museum or at a historical sight teaching people about the history.

n: If you find yourself with an hour to spare, what do you like to do?
R: If I ever have an hour to spare I like to spend my time reading. I love being able to jump into another world and seeing characters develop.

If you’re interested in being a Class of 2019 Model Rep, the details will be out soon.Watch our blog for more details on December 1st!

Today we’re featuring photos from our September session with Brynne who’s a senior at Vernon Hills High School!

Brynne throws the shot put for the track team, plays the viola in the orchestra and is obsessed with makeup!

Needless to say Brynne did her own makeup for her session and it was spot on perfect! She also brought her viola and we made sure to capture some images with that since it’s been so important to her life story!

Lauren’s a senior golfer and soccer player at Johnsburg High School as well as one of our nFocus Model Reps for the Class of 2018! We had the chance to photograph Lauren both in the studio and outside this summer and had a bunch of fun both times we worked with her!

Every year we have one senior who is completely unlucky when it comes to weather and this year that senior was Lauren! Took us three tries to finally get a day without rain for her session, but I was so glad we waited as she ended up getting one of the nicest days of the year!

We took advantage of that perfect day to explore some of my favorite spots and capture some really nice images. Back in the studio last Spring we also took the time to make sure we got a bunch of different photos featuring her and her golf equipment since golf is a big part of her life.

Our Senior Photo Session with Amber from Johnsburg High School

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

Today we’re featuring our senior photo session with Amber who’s a senior at Johnsburg High School! Amber played for the Johnsburg soccer team that finished third in state last season and is hoping to build on their success this coming Spring.

Amber signed up to be one of our Class of 2018 Model Reps in January, giving us the chance to work with her on two different photo shoots. Her sessions were lively and fun and the resulting photos were amazing!

We of course made sure to feature some with her in her soccer uniform, but she also was able to wear a variety of different outfits and over the course of the two sessions became very comfortable in front of the camera!

Here’s a sampling of the photos we created with Amber for you to check out. Also read what she had to say about her nFocus experience and her love for the Black Eyed Peas!

nFocus: How would you describe your photo shoots?
Amber: My photoshoots were very laidback and relaxed which made it very easy to do and I was able to bring my own ideas and style to the sessions which made it more enjoyable!

n: What was your favorite part of your photo shoots?
A: My favorite part of the photoshoots was finding out what props and backgrounds that I would be posing in front of. Nick did a great job in finding backgrounds for both the outdoor and indoor shoot that corresponded with my style and outfits which ultimately made the final product look amazing.

n: Some of your friends may want to have a friend take their senior photos, or their Mom’s friend with a nice camera. What would you say to them about your experience working with nFocus?
A: I would tell them that when you go to nFocus, there is a lot of experience behind the camera. Nick is able to adjust and improvise accordingly to your own style and knows the best angles for you to make your pictures look fabulous. He understands that most of his clients aren’t models that are used to being behind the camera so he helps you out a lot and the pressure gets taken off of you!

n: Your Mom was at your shoot. Did you feel like it was a good bonding experience for the two of you?
A: Having my mom at my photo shoot was a good bonding experience for the both of us because it was very important to me that not only I liked how my pictures turned out, but she did too. In the end, she would be the one hanging up the pictures around my house, so I wanted to make sure that she liked what was going on at my shoots. Behind the scenes, we had a fun time picking out outfits and props and her presence behind the camera helped me be more relaxed in my pictures.

n: Did the final photos turn out the way you had hoped?
A: I was beyond satisfied with how my pictures turned out and it was worth my time shooting with nFocus! It was hard to choose a favorite picture of myself because there was a variety of poses, outfits, and backgrounds that I loved so much!

n:What did you like or dislike about your experience as a Model Rep?
A: My experience as a Model Rep was awesome! I liked supporting nFocus while at the same time taking pictures that came out amazing so it was a win-win.

n: If a theme song played every time you walked in a room, what would it be?
A: The people that know me would definitely know that every time Fergalicious came on, it would be me strutting into that room.

n: Favorite band when you were 10?
A: My favorite band when I was 10 was the Black Eyed Peas. My Dad and I used to listen and sing to them all the time. Even today, I periodically turn their songs on because my love for them hasn’t died.

n: If you had a superpower what would it be and why?
A: If I had a superpower, it would be the ability to read minds. I think it would be cool to know how people think through certain situations and get through them.

n: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
A: In 10 years, I see myself having a successful job with the support of my loving dogs by my side. I cannot see my future without dogs to be honest.

n: Something most people don’t know about you?
A: Most people don’t know that one point in my life, I was obsessed with One Direction. I know every single song and once knew everything about each band member. It was absolutely crazy.

Senior photos and our interview with Darby from Cary, Illinois

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

Today I’m featuring images from our senior session with Darby from Cary, IL. Darby is our first ever Model Rep from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts where she is a high school senior!

When Darby agreed to be one of our Class of 2018 Reps she was still a Junior at Cary Grove and didn’t know the wonderful opportunity that awaited her. This past summer she attended UNC’s summer arts program and was chosen to study drama at their prestigious School of the Arts for her Senior Year! A huge honor!!

We had the opportunity to photograph Darby twice, once in the studio while she was still a Junior and again outside this summer. Both of her sessions were a total blast! She was a lot of fun to work with and very comfortable in front of the camera! We tried lots of different poses, expressions and ideas and even took some headshots she’ll be able to use for auditions.

We are so impressed with everything Darby has accomplished and expect great things from her in the future! Most of all we look forward to being able to say we knew her when!!

Check out these photos from Darby’s session and then check out what she had to say about her nFocus experience!

nFocus: How would you describe your photo shoots?
Darby: My shoots were comfortable, fun, expressive, and free!! I never felt embarrassed or weird striking poses or trying different facial expressions. It was an open and collaborative space to create fun, new ideas for the photo session. Every picture was unique and allowed me to express all of the different parts that make up me! Not to mention, I just felt free and happy to be there getting beautiful photos taken.

n: What was your favorite part of your photo shoots?
D: My favorite part of the shoots was being able to change outfits so that I could convey totally different styles and moods that represent me and my closet. Fashion is a total key to identity and the ability to bring different outfits to change into allowed me a lot of personal expression.

n:Some of your friends may want to have a friend take their senior photos, or their Mom’s friend with a nice camera. What would you say to them about your experience working with nFocus?
D: It’s so professional. The settings, backgrounds, lighting, poses, and just the whole experience! There’s nothing more satisfying and exciting than looking through all of your nFcous photos thinking, “I can’t even choose a favorite!”

n: Your Mom was at your shoot. Did you feel like it was a good bonding experience for the two of you?
D: My mom and I totally bonded through this experience. She loved watching me hit bold poses and step out of my comfort zone a little bit. Plus, we both got wonderful photos to admire together out of the deal.

n: Did the final photos turn out the way you had hoped?
D: Definitely. Each photo is so unique, individual, and shows who I am as a person SO well. These photos are so beautifully crafted and well done that I’m actually using some of them to serve as my acting headshots as I audition for college conservatories and different shows!

n: What did you like or dislike about your experience as a Model Rep?
D: I liked everything about the Model Rep program! If I could do it again, I would because it was that fun!

n: How would you describe your personal style?
D: I don’t like to tie myself down to one type of style. If something catches my eye, I grab it!! I basically just enjoy making loud statements with my outfit choices, plus, yellow is ALWAYS a good idea.

n: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
D: I see myself as a working actress playing roles both in television and film. Hopefully married and close to starting a family!

n: If you find yourself with an hour to spare, what do you like to do?
D: I love naps or just taking time to breath and meditate. Plus, any day I get to read and/or watch some Harry Potter is a great day.

n: Where would you most like to go to college?
D: University of North Carolina School of the Arts to get a BFA in acting! I attend the high school drama program there currently.

n: Favorite drink at Starbucks?
D: Basic, but a caramel frappe! Mmmmm…

n: If you had a superpower what would it be and why?
D: Invisibility for sure. I’m such a curious person so I could listen in on conversations and go see movies without having to pay!!

n: If a theme song played every time you walked in a room, what would it be?
D: Basically anything from Barbie’s Princess and the Pauper. It’s a great film, highly recommend, plus my friends all joke and call me Barbie.

n: Favorite three songs on your phone?
D: I really like simple, calming music, and some alternative to top it off. Holocene by Bon Iver, Perfect by Ed Sheeran, and Carried Away by Passion Pit.

D: My favorite band when I was 10 was The Killers! Many of their songs were on this PS4 game we had “Sing It!” which started my love for their cool and energetic sound.
