Leigha first met me back when we did her friend Kelli’s photo shoot. In my mind, I pictured her name as being “Leah,” so when a “Leigha” contacted me, it took a moment to realize that it was the same girl.

We had a ton of fun on Kelli’s shoot, and I knew Leigha’s would be no different. We got rained out on our first attempt, so we rescheduled and ended up with much better weather.

I think incorporating who you are as a person makes the session more fun and unique-no one else will have a session like you. Leigha is an athletic trainer at the school and works closely with all the sports teams. This is helping her to prepare for her future career in the medical field. And she’s already well on her way to earning her college degree, having earned some credits in high school already.

Something fun we did was take athletic wrap tape and put it all over my lens, then shoot through it, just to incorporate some of the tools of the trade.

It was great to meet Leigha’s mom too-thanks for helping out! 🙂

Leigha’s also a reader, and it was so impressive to see that she had “Of Mice and Men” in her car and also, she has read a lot of the classics. She’s better versed in Zora Neale Hurston’s “Their Eyes Were Watching God” and many other curriculum books than I am, and I went to grad school for English education. So needless to say, Leigha’s extremely smart.

Leigha, it was so great to see you again and thank you so much for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography for your senior photos.

I have absolutely no doubt that you will be successful in life. Have a wonderful end of your senior year and enjoy every second of this upcoming time!

I’ve been looking for many months for the perfect album offerings for my clients. I know several of you have emailed asking me to create an album for you, so it was time to start collecting and examining samples.

As big as a cell phone, high quality leather (or linen, your choice), and holding twenty images, mini albums are my first offering in my album line. The pages are thick and the printing is of the highest quality. The books last for many years, truly heirloom quality.

At just 4″ by 4″, you can throw them in your bag (in the cute black and white slipcover to protect it) or leave them on your desk at your office. You can use them as a parent album for mom and dad or your new in-laws or even create them for your bridal party. You can keep them for years to come in their slipcover or leave them out on the counter to look at all twenty pages often.

The best part is, they come as a set of two for one low price! So it really does make a great add-on to your wedding coverage and lets you have a printed product for parents or grandparents or even for yourself. If you haven’t had the time to make a large album or scrapbook yet, this product lets you show your wedding photos in print instead of having to say to those that ask “Oh, we haven’t had time to print any yet!” (I am guilty of this. I’ve been married twenty-one months and have yet to frame a single photo!)

Minis are not just available for weddings either, but can be purchased for high school seniors, newborns, and family sessions too.

I look at photos constantly on my computer (and maybe you do too, even on your phone), but let me tell you, nothing beats the color, the sharpness, the pop, and the look of these printed images.

I wanted to keep my first sample classic, with a white leather cover and black page spreads, but custom design is also available, including your choice of seven cover colors. Current and former clients, contact me for your price quote via email or phone and I’ll get working on your minis right away.

Larger size albums will soon be available as well!

Do you remember Kaitlyn from back in June? She was my first ever senior rep.

When I envisioned senior portraits from Kristen Wynn Photography, I wanted to do something different than the usual. Portrait sessions are fun, but lifestyle photography is all about the true, authentic moments. So when Kaitlyn’s mom contacted me about coming out to Kaitlyn’s swim meet to shoot, I couldn’t turn it down; this is exactly what I am hoping high school senior photography will become.

Our memories come from experiences and capturing experiences can be tough with Mom and Dad’s camera, especially at sporting events, because of the distance to the subject, the lighting, the motion. I remember my own mom taking photos at my brother’s soccer game with her consumer camera. “Oops, I missed him!” was the phrase most often repeated.

Now my experience with swimming competitions prior to this was watching some Michael Phelps on the Olympics back in 2008. 🙂 But it was awesome to freeze the movement of water in the photographs of Kaitlyn and to capture some of that nervous energy and competitive spirit.

And Kaitlyn and the team ended up doing really well! Go Vipers!

Most teenagers don’t really like getting up early, especially not on the weekend! But Brittany and I met up bright and early to do some senior portraits two weeks ago. We started off at the pier, where it was HOT, but we stayed in the shade for nice lighting.

Brittany rocked a formal gown for her first outfit, then went a bit more casually for some others. We were getting splashed and soaked by the waves in this shot, but you can’t tell from Brittany’s bright smile.

After high school, Brittany plans to go on to culinary school to pursue her dreams.

Brittany has amazingly smooth skin! My skin never looked like this as a teenager (or now), so she is really blessed with good genes there!

After a quick stop to refresh at her mom’s beauty salon, we hit up downtown Titusville before heading out on a country road. While Brittany’s mom and I were standing in the road, a man rolled up and reminded us of gators in the area, yikes!

I’m happy to report that all three of us made it out unscathed from gator country!

Brittany, it was so great to meet you and work with you! I wish you so much success in culinary school. Please be sure to come back and cook for me! 🙂

I met Tabatha through one of my other senior reps, Kelli. She’s super sweet and was super excited for her session, as was I. When we’re doing senior portraits, I like to mix it up and do something that reflects each teen’s personality, so I headed to her home and was delighted to find a country scene right there in the backyard.

A few people wanted to know where we found this tire swing and the answer is Tabatha’s backyard! This isn’t a shot that is going to be able to be replicated in the future. 🙂

After we got some great images on the property, we headed to the beach. The sun was setting, but the beach wasn’t closed yet, and Tabatha, her friend who came along on our shoot, and I were all so glad they let us in to get these great images in perfect light.

We were all joking around that Tabby loves to do a serious look, but I think it works here.

Tabatha’s outfits fit her perfectly and really showed off her confidence. Also, I love it when a girl does her hair curly in the Florida heat! It fights the frizz and looks great in a lot of the shots.

And as we left the beach and hit the long country road, we had the windows down and were laughing as the sun set. Photography, a super nice client, laughter, and the late summer weather all combined for just one perfect moment.

Tabatha, so glad you are my senior reps for Astronaut High! I wish you so much success in the future!
