Sisters Natalia and Danielle’s portrait session was such a blast when their best friends, Jordan and Brielle, joined the fun.  Four lovely, fashionable teen girls and some gorgeous horses… we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect shoot.

Aren’t Natalia and Jordan adorable together?  They’ve been best friends since childhood, and Jordan is also an incoming high school senior, class of 2012.

This is Natalia with Aramis.  Aramis and Romano look very similar, but Romano is taller.  I have to say, Quincy, Romano, and Aramis were truly the most beautiful horses we’ve ever seen.

Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank High School & College Senior Portrait Photographer | Post-Processing: Before & After

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post-processing Before & After post, so it’s a good time for another one!  I fully edit all images that show up on the blog and all prints and products that go to my clients.  That way, my clients get their beautiful images looking the best they can.  If you missed the first post-processing Before & After post, check it out here!

Today I’m going to go over an image from one of my Pasadena senior portrait sessions.  Senior sessions are a great opportunity to let your personality shine, and fashion is one perfect way to do that.  I love the orange wrap that this senior wore.  It’s such a striking point of interest for her photos.

Pasadena, Glendale, Burbank, LA, San Gabriel Valley high school / college senior photos (junior photos)

All the steps in this post have a standard sharpening that I do for all blog images.  Below is the image straight out of the camera.  As you can tell, she thinks I’m very funny.

Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, LA high school / college senior photos (junior photos)

Although I liked the photo in color, I really wanted to emphasize the contrast in the photo, and turning it black and white highlighted that contrast well.

San Gabriel Valley, LA, Glendale, Burbank high school / college senior photos (junior photos)

Next I added a bit of extra contrast and warmth in Photoshop to really make the image pop.

Finally, I wanted to draw more attention to her face and make the background less distracting, so I did a little cropping of the sides and bottom.  And this is the final result!

Marci - Her laughter jumps OUT at us and brings us into the moment…with her and you. The moment has been captured and expressed beautifully! And contagious…makes me feel like laughing too.May 15, 2011 – 8:02 am

Evan - I love the way you emphasized her face. The contrast between the subject and the background makes it easy to see where you wanted to focus the attention of the viewer, but the spacious background adds some interest and a sense of depth.May 12, 2011 – 1:21 pm

May - Beautiful smile!May 10, 2011 – 9:28 am

Alyssa - Senior portraits? Looks fantastic to me, and I never thought about doing them outdoors like this. It’s a thousand times better than the studio shots we do for school. Will you be available for a shoot after new year’s?December 18, 2010 – 12:21 am

Peggy - Beautiful photos and model! My favorite is the tree.December 15, 2010 – 4:15 pm

Lizzy - The colors and the lighting are amazing, especially in the one where she’s lying on the tree. This is a lovely setting. Wonderfully captured!December 14, 2010 – 12:01 am

Marci - Your photos are wonderfully enveloping nature and subject as one!! A truly inter-connected kind of posing here with both nature and subject. And I’d like to add that that girl sure has alot of “Chi” in her!! :>)December 10, 2010 – 7:59 pm

Eva - She must be a nature lover! It’s an amazing setting of the tree in late autumn. It looks as if the tree is hugging the young girl who is immersed in the peaceful wilderness.December 8, 2010 – 9:48 pm
