Annapolis Capital Senior Session | Julia
Julia is a senior from Annapolis High School and a member of the JGP 2018 Senior Team. It was great to know Julia found me on a Google search for a photographer for senior pictures. She randomly clicked on my web page and was shocked by the instant feeling of, ‘I want this!” I am so glad you did Julia because it has been really fun creating your portraits for you!
Julia wanted an Annapolis Capital senior session, including downtown on the State House steps where she spends time as a member of the Student Government Association. Julia has the motivation of three people, works three part-time jobs, volunteers at the Wellness House of Annapolis, is in the IB program at Annapolis High, and knows exactly what she wants to do after high school, which includes going to college in a large city, joining the Peace Corps for a year between undergrad and graduate school. As Julia wrote in her senior team application, “I am passionate about being a leader. I want to fix problems, evoke change for the better, and help other people to do the same.”
We also planned the perfect senior wardrobe for her Annapolis capital senior session. Julia transforms from the ultra business persona to a girl with fashion and style in her leather jacket, skirt, and heels!
The golden hour of light hit as we photographed Julia by the Governor’s Mansion, with the light filtering thru the gardens. I have difficulty stopping the camera from clicking during this hour because it is such gorgeous light!
Julia loved the balloon shoot we did this summer and we went with aqua balloons for a water shot at the sunset hour! Julia’s blue eyes are mesmerizing and one can see into this girl’s incredible soul filled with determination and drive to be the best at whatever she does and to make a difference in this world.
For Julia’s in-studio session for being on the Senior Team, she asked to incorporate her hobby of ice skating, so we created this gorgeous silhouette shot which is displayed in the studio’s window.
To finish off her in studio pictures, we wanted to try something fun and incorporated Julia’s skates with high heels and a sequin dress from the studio’s style closet.
We love the smiles and can do spirit of you Julia!
Thank you for being a part of the 2018 JGP Senior Team! It is so wonderful to see a young lady who is so incredibly motivated and fiercely driven by her goals. I’m looking forward to seeing you make a great impact on this world!
