Sarina | Lake Washington High School

Sarina planned an amazing Seattle senior session with one of her best friends and it turned out so great! Each of these seniors deserved their own blog post, so you can check out Kassie’s here.

Time in the tall wheat grass

This time of year, I absolutely love the tall wheat grass at Discovery Park. It has a pretty golden color and makes skin tones look gorgeous. It’s also the best background for pretty much any outfit! Because it isn’t busy and colorful, it allows the senior to be the center of attention. You can wear any color and style and look fantastic. And even if the sun isn’t shining, the color reflects light beautifully. Sarina wore her casual outfit and cheer uniform during this part of our session and I think it was the perfect choice.

Golden hour to sunset

We spend golden hour and sunset down at the beach area of Discovery Park. Golden hour is the time just after sunrise and right before sunset. The light is soft, flattering, and allows for some gorgeous photos. Sarina saved her black dress and heels for this portion of our session. The more formal look at the beach was so pretty! And I really loved that she was willing to hop in the water. The images of Sarina in the water while the sun was going down are stunning.

Plan to get variety

Sarina ended up with some great variety in her gallery. If you are hoping to see a lot of different looks, I love to help make sure that happens. I give my seniors a link to their planning guide with a ton of information. Things like outfits, locations, and lighting all play a big role in how much diversity you will see in your images. And, don’t worry, it’s not as overwhelming as it sounds. I’m always happy to help make the planning process fun and easy. From location selection to what to wear.
