Senior Portraits: Melissa - Odyssey | Rochester, NY Modern Senior Portraits

It's been a week (or more??) of crazy weather, and today was no exception. It poured all night long and into the morning. I woke up thinking we'd have to reschedule Melissa's session for sure. And again I was wrong, lol.

Having been involved with dance since she was 3, we did a series with a variety of her dance shoes. This is a shot with the point shoes. Just looking at them makes my feet hurt!

When I saw her purple shirt I knew the hazelnut backdrop would be a great choice- love the deep rich colors, and love my giant old trunk!

Melissa specifically asked if her package allowed for any black & white or sepia images... YES, all senior packages include that option at no charge. Here's one in b&w. I love her expression!

After the studio portion we headed down to the beach. And it was actually really gorgeous weather! Bonus- since it had been raining all morning, we were the only ones there! I love this background, it's inside the courtyard. I've never been shooting at the beach when the gate is unlocked and no one was playing basketball so I was really excited. It was begging for an urban twist so here it is in an acid effect.

Melissa- it was fun, you were a total natural in front of the camera!! I hope you enjoy them so far!!
