Senior Photography – Romantic Chattanooga Session

When Reese’s mother first contacted me about scheduling a Chattanooga senior photography session, I had a feeling we were kindred spirits. Like I was at that age, Reese is very involved in the high school theatre department at Brainerd Baptist School. In fact, I had seen in the role of Belle from Beauty and the Beast with my oldest two daughters the semester before. When I had a consultation with Reese about her vision for her session, it was clear we were on the same page.

Reese wanted a session with a romantic, dramatic feel that featured outdoor, natural beauty. We first achieved this look with her wardrobe. When planning a senior photography session, don’t be afraid to wear something special. Reese brought along two dresses of her own. I supplied the white puff sleeve dress from my client closet. These long, flowy dresses were a huge element in achieving a dramatic, romantic look. Reese was a total natural in them, pulling from her theatre experience while posing in front of the camera.

We used two locations around Chattanooga, TN. The first was at Greenway Farms in Hixson where I knew I could find some trees with nice color and an overall simple, rural background. However, the second location that featured Lookout Mountain in the backdrop was the true showstopper. The fall grasses gave perfect texture to the foreground of her images. While Reese had not planned on using any “props” during her session, we couldn’t resist the wildflowers. We picked a few to make a little bouquet that she even took home as a little memento from our session.

If you are planning a senior photography session in the general Chattanooga area, let’s talk! I would be happy to walk you through the process of bringing your vision to life. Even if you don’t have drama in your background. I love helping seniors feel natural and confident in front of my camera. Find out more information about sessions with me here.
