Senior Pictures – New York City

June 29, 2016

 Senior picture in Times Square, NYC.

When you get a call from a long time client and she asks you if you’re available to take her daughter’s senior pictures in NYC, you don’t really have to even think about it.

This was my first visit to the city and I had no idea what to expect.  I am definitely more of an open spaces kind of girl and truthfully, I didn’t think I’d really like it all that much.  Boy was I wrong.  New York City truly is one of a kind and it immediately stole my heart.  This was a first time visit for Hannah and her family as well.  What an amazing idea to plan a family vacation and senior pictures into one trip!

Hannah was a joy to shoot.  Easy going, up for anything and as you can see – absolutely gorgeous!  We shot Times Square and Central Park right at sunrise.  We figured Times Square would pretty much be insanity any other time of day.  If there was one thing I wasn’t prepared for in New York it was the sheer amount of people.  It was a bit of a challenge at times but I learned pretty quick to embrace NYC’s inhabitants and that the people here are really what give this city it’s energy.

What an amazing, once in a lifetime experience for this young lady!  And for me?  I’ll be back New York.  You can bet on it!

About jolene

As a photographer, the significance of intent cannot be overstated. I create photographs of women for themselves first and foremost. While some clients may choose to share their pictures with their significant others, my primary objective is to craft imagery for YOU first and foremost. I want you to look at your images and FEEL something. I want your images make you feel powerful, confident and self aware. I want your images to remind you of where you are right now. What you’ve overcome and where you are heading.

I photographed my first boudoir photoshoot in 2007, and since then I have been in absolute awe of what boudoir shoots do for women and their self confidence.
