Before I photograph a senior, I typically ask a little bit about them so I can match their photo session to their personality. I strive to make each session different, especially when the senior attends the same high school. The last thing anyone wants is to have their photos look alike. In order to do this, I need to move around and use a variety of settings.
One setting I am particularly fond of is some property I own in Carver. Recently, I took a high school senior out to photograph her and I have to say the property is fantastic for anyone looking for something a little edgy and different. I’ve used this property time and time again because it’s fantastic for photography mainly because of the old rustic barns and fences we have there. Peeling paint and texture is key for portrait photography! There are also fields full of flowers and tall grasses to use and the creativity is endless there. It works very well for males and I used this location for my son last year when I did his senior portrait session.
Here is the rustic red barn which I love because of the contrast it delivers!

This is a grungy metal background. One of my favorites because it’s unique and different. It’s really nice for boys too!
