When Kerry’s mum phoned me to book her daughter’s senior photo shoot I was so thrilled! I love senior sessions because it’s such an exciting time for the students. They are approaching the end of High School with anticipation, they have important decisions to make about their future and the big wide world awaits them. Some are considering study in other countries, many will be saying goodbye to friends and family for a while.
Following my conversations with her mum I was really looking forward to meeting Kerry. Not only is Kerry blessed with gorgeous looks but she is also incredibly smart, hoping to study accountancy at college after she graduates from Singapore American School. She is also a very advanced rower and has a high-degree black belt in taekwondo – very gifted on so many levels.
Originally we’d planned to do the shoot at the Botanical Gardens, a popular location for senior photo shoots. However, when it’s the rainy season and you live in Singapore, some things are just not going to happen according to plan. We decided to relocate to Raffles Hotel which is mostly undercover. It turned out to be a perfect location and we got some really wonderful photos of Kerry. She had picked several outfits in fabulous colors, brought along her favorite shoes, and got into the swing of things very quickly.
With Kerry’s confidence and ease we were able to create some senior photos that she is proud of and her parents are delighted with. As a photographer there is nothing more rewarding than being able to capture my subject in the best possible light and present a set of portraits that will be cherished for years to come.
My best wishes and congratulations to Kerry, her friends at SAS and all seniors graduating this Spring 2015!
