It’s Part 2 of Vicki Hallman’s Senior Spokesmodel session!

So when we last left off, we learned a little about Vicki.  Clearly, you can tell by looking at her that she has a great sense of style and fashion, but you might not have guessed that she is really into sports.  Friday nights, you can always find her at a Loganville High School Football game.    Saturdays, you can find her watching College Football.  She has also been the manager for a Basketball Team.   Pretty much anything sports related, Vicki loves.

Back to her fabulous sense of fashion and style for a second, let’s take a look at more images from her session:

While I have photographed a few other senior sessions right after I first announced {Twelve}12, Vicki Hallman is our first Senior Spokesmodel.Twelve 12 by Tricia Toker Vicki Hallman sxs e Loganville High School Senior Portraits Loganville Georgia Walton County Vicki Hallman ~ Senior Spokesmodel ~ Loganville High School {Senior Portrait Photographer} ~ Part 1

I can’t even tell you how much fun I had with Vicki.  She has the best, bubbly personality and of course takes a phenomenal photograph..well, lots of them in fact!   From the second we met, she had me laughing and that’s pretty much how the entire session went.

Vicki has been singing and performing for a while now, but recently tried out for American Idol.  Shame on Simon Cowell and company for not selecting her!  Their loss is my gain though, because if she had made it to Hollywood, I probably wouldn’t have gotten the chance to photograph her.  :)  Since I knew she was a singer, I wanted to get a microphone and stand for our session.  I won’t point out an obvious flaw in my plan, but we had fun nonetheless.

While they don’t know each other at all, I thought it was funny that both of my recent seniors had so many similarities: the same name (different spelling), recent tattoos, and going to college to pursue careers in the medical field.

Meet Chelsea #2!

What did you enjoy most about your senior year?

“I was involved with football, so I always looked forward to Friday night. Not only is it the end of the week, but it meant a football game.”

What are you looking forward to most now that you have graduated?

“Going to college and pursuing a career in the medical field.”

What are you going to study at college?

“I will be going to Athens Technical College, and I will be studying diagnostic medical sonography.”

I love so many things about this session…the colors, the locations, everything.

Chelsea met me super early.  I am really not a morning person, but it’s been ridiculously hot this summer.  I asked Chelsea if she could meet early so we could try to avoid some of the heat.  She had no problem at all meeting early and was totally cool about all the random locations that I picked.  For the past year, I have driven by many of these spots and couldn’t wait for the chance to find someone to photograph at them.  Chelsea didn’t even bat an eyelash when I brought her to a gutted out gas station.  I just love when the people I photograph are as excited about the locations that I pick as I am.

The final location we shot at was perfect.  Chelsea really killed it here (in a model kind of way) and I am so happy with all the images!  To see more from her session, click here and go to the High School Seniors section.

I found this so touching…

Chelsie recently had a brother pass away and got a tattoo in his memory.

Ahhh…shoes!  Being a little obsessed with shoes myself, I always tell everyone to wear their favorite shoes!  I love these cute little wedges Chelsie wore.  They are very nautical – so fun!

I want to thank Chelsie for letting me photograph her and wish her all the best as she “goes off into the world.”    :)

I have been hinting around to changes lately.  After photographing families, weddings, children, events…I finally have decided what suits me and my photography style best.  I will now be specializing in High School Senior Portraits.  Now, this isn’t the plain old cap and gown or that drape we had to wear back when I was in school.  Not at all!  :)  My style has always been taking a fabulous fashionable person and find a dirty, not so pretty location and let them pose as if they are in a fashion magazine.  I’m inspired by fashion and editorial style shoots where smiles aren’t always necessary.   What I have learned in the past few years is that my style and what I love to photograph is exactly what High School Seniors want to have in photographs of themselves.

The first most obvious change is the Portfolio page of my website.  I have removed the Children, Family, and Boudoir sections.   I always hear that you should show the work that you want to attract and for me, that is Seniors and Individuals & Couples interested in Fashion & Editorial inspired photo shoots.   The second most obvious change is the addition of the High School Senior gallery to the Portfolio page.  From time to time, you may still see a few family sessions appear on the blog, because I do have lots of friends with children.   I just won’t be focusing on these types of sessions anymore or targeting them as part of my business.

I have also named the High School Senior Portrait side of my business {Twelve}12 and created some new logos to match.  I just wanted a bit of a separation from Tricia Toker Photography.
