A few weeks ago, the website Seniorologie announced they would be celebrating their one year birthday!  In addition to celebrating all month with birthday related giveaways and posts, they wanted to see any other photographers’ birthday concept shoots.    Early this week, I was soooo incredibly excited to see a birthday shoot that I put together featured on their website!   Click here for the Seniorologie post and read all about my inspiration for the shoot.    Then come back here and scroll down for more from this fun shoot!

I was trying not to duplicate images that were in the Seniorologie post, but I have to share this one again, because I literally have had this idea in my head for years!  I have always wanted to recreate different memorable movie scenes and this shoot was perfect to recreate the final scene from the movie “Sixteen Candles!”  Make a Wish!Tricia Toker Photography Seniorologie Birthday Concept Shoot Maili Lutz Atlanta Georgia Johns Creek Georgia Alpharetta Georgia Larwenceville Georgia Blog 024 Featured ~ Seniorologie ~ {Atlanta, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Lawenceville, Surrounding Areas   Senior Portrait Photographer}

Thanks to Leslie from Seniorologie for creating such an awesome resource for senior portrait photographers.  If it weren’t for your “birthday,” I probably wouldn’t have had a reason to pull this all together!

By the way…if anyone can get me access to a school (legally, of course), I have lots of other memorable movie scenes that I would love to recreate!

Super excited to have my first national feature!  Last week, while on vacation, I received a notification from Facebook.  Another photographer, Absurdly Normal Productions (love the name!), left this comment:

“I just saw a session you did on Senior Portraits forum. I was gonna comment on which ones I liked and realized I really liked all of them! Nice session! Love the choice of Green and the Black and White!!”

I sat there at dinner a little confused, because I didn’t know what he was talking about initially.  Then all of a sudden, it hit me and I realized that one of my sessions must have been featured and it was all I could do to contain my excitement!

As soon as I got back to the hotel room, I started scrolling through Facebook on my phone, but that was taking too long.  I got out the computer and went to Senior Portraits Forum and there it was!!!

When I first started planning this shoot, I envisioned lots of drama and shadows.  I think it became more apparent to me after I started adding things to Pinterest.  If you look at the images I pinned, almost every one them had fabulous lighting and shadows.

I think it’s so interesting how different this shoot turned out compared to my normal portraits without even trying really.  I think we all kind of got wrapped up in the location, which really made this shoot.  I absolutely love the mood of these images.

Funny story about the location.  The first time I was here was the day after I had watched one of the “Saw” movies.   One of the buildings immediately reminded me of what could have been in one of those movies.  I told Laura this story when we went to see the location together.  She thought this particular building looked much more “Saw” like.

We started referring to them as “Saw 1″ and “Saw 2.”

“Saw 1″ was the in first post.   This is “Saw 2.”

Again, I cannot thank Laura, Casey, Savannah & Jennifer enough for all the work you each put into this shoot!  You all always manage to make my visions come to life and I love it!

I’m sure it won’t surprise you to know that Laura and I (with help from others I will introduce later) have already started planning another styled shoot.  This one will be in the fall.  Any ideas on the theme??  ;)  Leave a comment if you have any guesses!

You may recall that I mentioned in the post of the last styled shoot, that we were already planning another shoot.  The day that I was editing those pictures, I remembered that one of our models, Savannah, was a dancer and how bummed I was that we had run out of time and didn’t capture any images of her dancing.  Then it occurred to me to do an entire shoot around her dancing!  I ran my idea by Makeup Artist Laura Briscoe and she was immediately on board.  Casey Arnold also agreed to do hair again.  Savannah had another dancer friend and voila – we had another styled shoot in the making!

Let me start out by telling you that I like to compare this shoot to “the little engine that could.”  I was so sick the day of the shoot that it’s a wonder that we accomplished what we did.  That being said, I couldn’t be more happy with how this shoot turned out.  As usual, the team that put this together is amazing to say the least and I’m so happy to have had another chance to collaborate with all of them again.  We had a new addition to our little team, dancer/model, Jennifer Hite.  I think it’s safe to say that we didn’t scare her off – I can’t say them same for the location, but that’s a story for another day.  ;)

These shots of Savannah aren’t so much about dance, because the dress limited her leg movement.

She looks so amazing though, that I don’t even mind.  :)

I absolutely love this next shot!  This was actually a test shot.

Seriously, who looks this good during a test shot!

She reminds me of the daytime alter ego of a comic book character!

Don’t ask me why, I have no idea, but that’s what I think of when I see this!  :)

I gotta give tons of credit for the makeup and hair that Laura and Casey did.   The looks these two come up with are breathtaking!!

Obviously we couldn’t have done this without Savannah & Jennifer!   You ladies pulled off the most beautiful moves and really made this shoot come to life!

Even though I was feeling a bit under the weather, the four of you made the shoot so much fun and had me constantly laughing!

While I no longer have my “Janice from friends” laugh, because I have my voice back, I’ll never forget this shoot!  :)

Grayson High School’s Casey Arnold is one of those girls who is truly just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

We were first introduced to each other by Makeup Artist Laura Briscoe.  Casey is a very close friend of Laura’s sister Connor.  When we were looking for someone to do hair for the styled shoot, Laura mentioned that she had someone in mind that was awesome and could do just about anything when it comes to hair styling.

If you’ve seen any of the images from the styled shoot, you know that Casey did a tremendous job!  Her talents don’t end there though, because she will be graduating with honors in a few weeks!  :)

Before we get to Casey’s pics though, just a few words from the soon to be Class of 2012 graduate:

What are your plans after school?  
I plan to go into KSU’s nursing school!
What will you miss most about high school?
The close friendships I have made. Good thing a lot of my closest friends will be going to Kennesaw with me! icon wink Casey Arnold ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} oh, also my mom’s cooking! aha.
What are you looking forward to most after graduating?  
hanging out with friends, and not waking up at 5:30 am every morning.

 

Casey – can’t say that I blame you on the 530a part!  ;)

I can’t believe it’s almost time for Class of 2012 to graduate!  I decided to specialize in Senior Photography back in the beginning of the school year and it’s crazy how quickly time has passed since then.  I’m really going to miss chatting with all these girls that I have gotten to know over the last several months.  Before graduation though, we have Prom!!  Have you seen how girls get asked to prom these days??  So many cool and creative ways!  As Prom season approached, it got me thinking about what more could I offer high school seniors.

Let me explain a little bit of how this shoot came to be.  Most of you already know that I once thought I would become a wedding photographer.  After about 6 weddings, I realized that wedding photography wasn’t for me.  I loved the getting ready part of the day and details though.  Then it occurred to me that I could document Prom or Homecoming like a wedding.  Why not?  Dresses, shoes, jewelry, getting ready!  All the things that I loved about photographing weddings and bonus, it all has to do with seniors!

You’ll have to excuse me – this post has A LOT of images!  :)

Thanks to Connor, Casey, David, Stephanie and Keimon for putting up with me!

Thank you so much to the Thompson (and Briscoe) family for welcoming me into your home and letting me document Connor’s last prom.  You all trusted me that day, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.  Not just for the photographs, but because as you know, you guys have all become like a second family, right down to little Clementine and Winston.  :)

 

Have a great week everybody!

Wow!  Where have I been?!?!  I took a little break to attend the Seniorologie tour at Serenbe Farms in Palmetto, Georgia and never posted the last part of the Styled Shoot!  Shame on me!  I’m back though, so here we go!!!

Part 3 is the dreamy, ethereal set for the “Dreams of Fame” Shoot.

Who doesn’t want to be girly and in a flowy dress sometimes?!?!  I know that I lean a little more towards the rocker chick of Part 2, but I can’t help but LOVE this too!  Again, Laura & Angela outdid themselves with makeup & wardrobe.   Throw in a little hair by Casey Arnold and we have the most beautiful girls that I could have ever imagined.

Ohhhhh!!!  I’m sad now, because this is the last post from the shoot.  :(   I told you all before how much I loved this shoot and everyone that made it happen.   Thank you so, so much Laura, Angela, Casey, Savannah, Gretchen, & Candace.   I couldn’t have done this without you all!  Thanks for making my little vision come to life!

While I was editing the next day, I remembered some shots that I didn’t have time to capture.  I called Laura and asked her if she wanted to do another styled shoot using a theme solely based on those “missing” shots.   She reminded me that the night before, after being so pooped, I said that I wouldn’t do another styled shoot for a little while.  After laughing about how it took me less than a day to plan another one,  she happily agreed!  :)   That shoot will take place next month, but ya gotta wait for that one!

Loganville High School’s Jordan Draughon is back on the blog!

What’s the number one question that I get asked before any session??

“What should I wear?!?”

My usual response, “bring EVERYTHING you want and lots of it!”   I love, love, love to have options and so will you!  I pick lots of spots to shoot in one session and I love to have that same amount of variety in wardrobe selection.

Jordan and her mom did such a good job with bringing lots of super cute clothes and accessories!

We arrived at the lake just as the sun was setting, so we had to move quickly.

Oh my goodness, so worth it to have captured this!

Ready to meet Loganville High School’s Jordan Draughon?  How about future University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Jordan Draughon?

Ok, Ok, same girl, but wait – did everyone enjoy their spring break?!?

I worked, but how about the rest of you??  :)

 

Seriously though, I did take a blog break because I didn’t want anyone to miss reading while celebrating on the beach!    I know the blog posts are super fascinating, but somehow I doubt they compare to sandy beaches!  ;)

You may have already seen the sneak peek of Jordan on Facebook, but you’ll see more pics from her session here.  I really had a hard time picking my favorites, because there are sooo many…

So here we are – Bailey Ferguson’s final appearance on the blog.  You may know her for playing defense on the Grayson High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse team, but I like to call her “goat whisperer.”  Ok, ok, that may sound a little dramatic, but it’s really true!

Let me back up a bit.  When I first started looking for locations for Bailey’s session, I remembered some pictures she had posted to Facebook.  They had some old buildings in the background and I asked her where the location was.  Lucky for me, it was the property of one her friends.  Bailey got us permission to photograph there and we met a few weeks later so I could check out the place.

The owner told me that we could jump the fence to get to the older buildings.  When Bailey and I got there, we had a choice, jump the fence or stand on the other side and not get to explore.  If you know me, I don’t jump fences and I have never been on the same side of a fence as any farm animals. Without hesitation, over the fence Bailey went.  A gaggle of goats headed her way and I held my breath, because I wasn’t sure what was about to happen.  Some of the larger goats approached Bailey first, and they simply walked up to her and let her pet them.  It was so cool!  At this point, I realized how lame I was on the other side of the fence and I took my little girly self and over the fence I went too.  I gotta say, goats are cute, really darn cute!  Who knew!

Fast forward to the day of our session and we find ourselves with the goats again.  This time though, there were 3-4 baby goats.  Oh My Goodness!  All of them loved Bailey…especially, one little girl goat. Everywhere Bailey went, the goat followed, saying “baaa” the whole way.

Now, baby goats are cute, but watch out, because what I didn’t know, they like to nibble things (like Bailey’s toes) and they eat things when they are unsupervised.  I had set down a notebook with 4 sheets of paper sticking out of it.  We couldn’t have been away from the notebook more than 5 minutes, I’m not kidding!  When we got back to the notebook – all of the sheets of paper were gone!  They literally ate the papers!  Lesson learned, watch your paper products around goats.  ;)

Let’s get back to Bailey now…

awww…back to our little goat friend.  I have to admit, this is a bit deceiving.  The little girl goat was so rambunctious, so catching her still was quite a task.  Bailey withstood a lot of nibbling to get these shots, but I love them, so I’m happy that she didn’t mind.

With graduation approaching, what will Bailey miss most?

“The thing that I’ll miss most is probably going to be being so close with the people that are my friends now…I’ll miss just being able to hang out with them whenever I want & I know that our friendships will change when we all separate for college which makes me sad. Also, FOOTBALL GAMES! They were so much fun and painting up with everyone to cheer on my friends every Friday is definitely something I’ll miss.”

Bailey, it really has been great getting to know you over the past few months.   I know you feel indecisive now, but don’t worry.  When you go off to Georgia Southern in a few months, I’m sure you will excel.  You have such a great, positive attitude and that will get you far!

Thanks to the Mahaffey’s for allowing us to shoot on their property!  We had such a blast!

You wouldn’t know it was still a winter day in Georgia when I photographed Grayson High School’s Bailey Ferguson for her senior portraits.  Luckily, winter didn’t stick around long this year, so it was perfect weather for some cowboy boots and a little black dress!

Meet Bailey Ferguson –  Grayson High School Lacrosse player, Luke Bryan fan and overall energetic, fun, and fearless girl!!  If you follow my page on Facebook, you have probably seen a preview of this beautiful high school senior already, but her images really don’t tell the whole story.  I have photographed lots of people willing to do anything to get the picture, but when Bailey and I had to climb a fence (with permission of course) to a pasture full of goats, I knew we were going to have fun together!  More of that later…let’s take a look at some fierceness first!

Oh, and let me say, Bailey totally tricked me.  She may have said she wasn’t sure if she could do the serious face…OMGoodness, are you kidding me…check this out!

So you may be wondering why I have an Elf on the Shelf.Tricia Toker Photography Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Elf on the Shelf Nikon DSLR USB 2012 DSC 1013 High School Senior Portraits Lawrenceville Georgia Gwinnett County1 Personal Obsessions   Elf on the Shelf

Well, it’s simple, I wanted one.  ;)

Seriously though, everyone knows how much I love Christmas and this year in particular I noticed so many wonderfully fun and creative photographs of everyone’s Elf on the Shelf.

My friend Beverly probably gets the most credit though.  After seeing all of her elf’s adventures, I knew that I had to have one!

Let me introduce you to our newest Christmas addition…

I can already tell you, we are going to have sooo much fun next Christmas.  ;)

So you better watch out, an Elf that reports back to Santa is one thing…but an Elf with a fancy camera, there is no telling what will happen!  With a face like this, do you doubt me??Tricia Toker Photography Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Elf on the Shelf Nikon DSLR USB 2012 DSC 1031 High School Senior Portraits Lawrenceville Georgia Gwinnett County Personal Obsessions   Elf on the Shelf

Class of 2012 is about half way through their final year.  Grayson High School’s Amy Thurber has had a pretty exciting year so far – cheering for the Grayson Rams, homecoming court.  In a few short months, what seemed like it took forever, will finally be here – graduation day.  Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber sxs i Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 3Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber sxs j Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 3Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber 72 Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 3Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber sxs k Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 3

So we already know Amy’s plans after high school, but for most seniors, these last few months are a time for reflection and excitement about what the future holds.

Amy – “What I will miss most about High School is cheering for football games, and being so close to all of my friends.
What I’m looking forward to most is getting my own apartment, making new friends and possibly joining a sorority.”

The soundtrack of your life.

I won’t age myself by telling you the songs that bring me back to high school, but I did ask Amy which song she can relate to most right now.   I’m a bit of a sap.  I never heard this song before and it almost made me tear up a bit.  What a perfect song!  (if you haven’t heard it either, you totally need to look it up and listen)

“My Wish”

Rascal Flatts

I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,

And each road leads you where you want to go,

And if you’re faced with a choice, and you have to choose,

I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.

And if one door opens to another door closed, 

I hope you keep on walkin’ till you find the window,

If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

 

But more than anything, more than anything,

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,

Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,

You never need to carry more than you can hold,

And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,

I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,

Yeah, this, is my wish.

I really don’t know how to follow that up – other than to thank Amy for being a {Twelve}12 Senior Spokesmodel and her parents Sandi and Bill for being her “agents.”  ;)

It was great getting to know you guys!
Good luck to Amy and enjoy the last few months!!!  Graduation day will be here before you know it!

When we last left off with Grayson Ram Cheerleader Amy Thurber, she was celebrating with the rest of Grayson High School over their State Championship Win!  So what next?  What happens when the lights go out and the stadium empties?  For this Class of 2012 girl – graduation, of course, then off to college.

When I asked Amy, “what’s next for you after graduation?”  She started to answer, and then her mom said, “tell her what you really want to be!”  With a mischievous smile, Amy responded, “a trophy wife!”  With that, all three of us were laughing!  Hey, can’t say that I blame her!

All trophy wife dreams and silliness aside, Amy hopes to attend Georgia Southern after graduation to become a dental hygienist.  Amy, the only words of wisdom I can give…be kind to your future patients, those pointy instruments hurt!  ;) Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber 26 Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Gwinnett County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 2

It’s a big weekend for Grayson High School.  Saturday, December 10, the Grayson Rams played the Walton Raiders in the Georgia Dome.  Whether you have only heard of Grayson because of the student video “Brookwood, Where you at?” or their follow up “This is our Year,”  the Grayson Rams had a remarkable season leading up to the championship (14-0). In the end, the Rams won the State Championship 24-0!   I know it will be a bittersweet end for Grayson Cheerleader and {Twelve}12 Senior Spokesmodel Amy Thurber.  After twelve years cheering, this was her final game as a Grayson Rams cheerleader, but what a way to go out on top!

When you meet Amy, you can’t help but have fun around her.  I met Amy and her mom Sandi a few weeks ago just as it was starting to get cold out.  I was worried it might be a little too cold, but by the time we met, the weather was perfect!   One thing I love about all the seniors I have photographed, they all have a willingness to do whatever, wherever to help make the perfect images.  Amy was no exception and having the back of the car like a closet packed with all sorts of outfits and jewelry, made me soooo happy!  Seniors, Fashion and Bling – gotta love that!

The first location we shot at is a park that I happened upon while location scouting the weekend before.  The woodsy feel and all the tress made it the perfect backdrop for some photographs with a romantic feel.   Throw in some bare feet and a bouquet of flowers…and voila!Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber sxs a Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Walton County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 1Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber sxs c Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Walton County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 1Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber 16 R Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Walton County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 1Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Amy Thurber sxs b Grayson High School Senior Portraits Grayson Georgia Walton County Amy Thurber ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Grayson High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 1

I have always loved Halloween.  When I was a little kid, the crisp air and trudging through the leaves on the ground….the candy!  You name it, I love everything about Halloween.  As an adult, I love the scary movies, going to haunted houses and still love dressy up and decorating the house.  Since moving into our house 4 years ago, we are fortunate to have a yard big enough to decorate and lots of children who get to come by and enjoy in the fun!

This year, I added LOTS to the decorations and I only wish Halloween was more than one day, so we could enjoy the fun for longer than a few hours!

One of my new favorite additions this year – The Insane Serial Killer.  He shakes back and forth in his chair.
