An Illinois Senior Session

Today’s featured session comes to you from Julie Pottorff Photography of Flora, Illinois.

“The lovely Bree is a 2015 senior at Olney’s East Richland High School here in Illinois. We worked together to create a mixture of images for her session. She preferred the country setting for her session, but still wanted to have some fun in an urban location.During her session we both found out that we have a serious love for Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette (a must have!) and shared a lot of laughs over another shared fear of spiders. Bree has impeccable taste in clothing, and she also did a FAB job on her own hair + makeup!

My inspiration for this session really just came from her outfit choices. Before we get started or go anywhere, I always look over everything that my senior client brought for her session. Based on my senior client questionnaire, I knew she wanted a mixture of both urban and country settings. I chose her cooler toned and edgier outfits for the urban location, and her warmer toned dresses for our country setting. I really want my locations to complement and enhance my senior’s overall look and feel to her session.”
