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.
