Brian Senior | www.tamipics.com

Met this guy when we has around 12 years old. How can it be that he has graduated from high school? These photographs were taken near my home in the Valley. Some of you know, last Fall I took a really bad fall and broke my elbow. The break was so bad that I had to have a total joint replacement. I had been schedule to photograph Brian right after my injury but went into surgery instead. I had to cancel his session but his mom waited for me. Can you believe it? She waited for me for over 6 months to heal up so I could do his senior portraits. I am so grateful.

Brian, I wish you happiness and success in all your future endeavors.

Senior Portrait Time | Liberty Lake Senior Portraits

This is what can be accomplished with a willing participant, a great wardrobe, and a bit of time!  This was a day to night session with a Spokane Senior.  I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.  The sunset image is spectacular on a metal print!  Beautiful Katheryn is a senior girl from Spokane Valley.  All of the images you see here are from her senior portrait session near Liberty Lake, WA.  As with all of my sessions we spend alot of time preparing and discussing exactly “how” to dress for a successful session, that is really a key component!  Another key aspect of a successful session is posing for your body type.  Posing is the polish that goes into a successful session.  It’s really key to getting the best session and it’s the thing that MOST photographers are seriously missing! We pulled out all the stops for this session.  I’m really proud of it, especially since Katheryn’s family are personal friends. Photographing a friend’s child is way more stressful than a stranger but I love to do it! It feels great to be trusted!

  Thanks Katheryn for paying special attention to your wardrobe it made photographing your session so much fun for me and great photos for you!  Congrats on your graduation I wish you a wonderful bright future at EWU!

Garrick | Tami Siriani Senior Portraits

Hey mom, don’t forget to book senor portraits for your favorite fella! Meet Garrick.  I always choose a location, style, and feel for my clients that will showcase the individuals who are being photographed.   I had the privileged of photographing him this summer for his senior portraits!  Lucky me!  We went out to Liberty Lake on a perfect summer night.   We wanted a outdoorsy feel for his Senior portraits and this location was selected specifically to showcase him! Doesn’t he have a killer smile?  It seemed almost a crime to photograph him without it! We created dramatic lighting with studio lights.  Garrick is a heavy metal fan and he brought some tunes on his device that we were jamming to during the session. I have a confession to make.  I love to photograph seniors.  It is my favorite thing to do. 

Getting some awesome portraits nailed down of your fella is so very important. Generally, years will go by before he is photographed professionally again! Don’t miss this opportunity to remember your senior!

We had to get at least one serious face.

Lady of the Lake
Lady of the Lake

Here is the beautiful and talented Lauren. She is a dancer, isn’t it obvious? I had a blast capturing her leaping through the air in dramatic fashion. She graduated this year. I always feel so grateful that parents trust me with this important milestone! Having some beautiful photographs of our senior is so important. Traditionally, the next time professional portraits are taken is at a wedding and there will be years of growth and maturity in between! It’s why I think this is so important!

We have a bunch of high schools here in Spokane Valley jam packed with graduating seniors!  This senior session was a day to night senior session.  We began the session in a park around the golden sunset hour.  The session wrapped up a few hours later by the lake after sunset.  It was a perfect summer night. When I am photographing a senior, I work to capture her unique personality and style.  I take cues from each individual that I photograph and work hard to help you, the viewer, see what I see about her.  Do you see a beautiful confident woman?  That is what I see.

I saw an excellent article a while back about how a photographer’s perception of the subject is transmitted into their photographs. I have always felt that way. In fact, it is why I try to get to know each person that I photograph so that what I imprint on the images tells the correct story.  What is your impression of these photographs?

Dreaming of Summer| Tami Siriani Photography

I’m dreaming of the summer…

I tend to hoard all of my summer work and post it through the winter. It’s a necessity. Who has time to blog when it’s time to shoot? Dreaming of the summer helps this former Californian survive the long dark winter.

Thinking back on my session with this guy and his family I can’t help but smile! I meet the neatest people in my job! This is Jackson, he is a senior, an athlete, musician, and all around gentleman! Not only did I get to spend an afternoon in one of the most beautiful places on earth, (Pacific Northwest) but I met great people. It was an incredible day. I long for the warm summer evenings when it is cold. A few more months and I’ll be back out there soaking in the rays, taking in the sights, and meeting more awesome people! Until then, I’m dreaming of summer.
