So excited to share some favorites from Jane’s shoot! I had a wonderful time exploring near OMSI and hanging out with her and her sweet family. Jane even brought her tutu along! It was fun getting some really elegant shots of her with more of an industrial background. We had golden light and a great view of the city skyline – perfect combo!

I liked how individual the process was, Allegra suggested a perfect location for me and we shot in places that reflect me as a person. I loved having the skyline of Portland in the pictures as well as the beautiful nature around OMSI. Allegra was super easy and fun to work with and she did an amazing job with the photos!SMA Senior Photos Portland_0008SMA Senior Photos Portland_0007How did you pick your outfits? Any advice to other seniors? I picked outfits that I knew I liked although I tried them on the day of the shoot which was a little stressful. I would definitely suggest trying everything on in advance.

What was the experience like? It was a really fun experience where I felt very comfortable, and never having my photos taken before, it was a nice surprise when I didn’t feel awkward and actually felt photogenic! It was also a beautiful location with wonderful weather!

Any advice to other seniors? I had a friend who had already taken her pictures help me out, but mostly I looked for colors that i knew looked good on me, and then formed three very different types of outfits so I could have all different looks.

Any advice to other seniors? I love makeup, so I have had a lot of practice. I would say, stick to something that you know you can do and that you know you love. Don’t experiment to much with your look, it’s your senior photo, it’s supposed to reflect you! If you’re not comfortable with makeup, I would definitely suggest someone to do it for you. And even if you do mess up, just remember photoshop was invented for a reason. :)portland senior photos_0018portland senior photos_0019portland senior photos_0020What was it like having your senior photos taken? I was pretty nervous at first, naturally. But, Allegra did an awesome job making me feel comfortable which helped me loosen up a lot. I put a lot of pressure on myself, praying that the photos would turn out. I have never felt very photogenic, but Allegra made sure the photos were just the way I wanted them to be, and they were excellent!portland senior photos_0021portland senior photos_0022portland senior photos_0023What are you most looking forward to for senior year? Ever since I was little I have always dreamed of going to college. Now that I’m actually old enough, I can’t wait to start applying. College has always been a dream of mine, so no matter the stress I foresee, I’m so elated to begin the process. portland senior photos_0024portland senior photos_0027portland senior photos_0025portland senior photos_0026Thanks for sharing, Devon! xoxo
