Trucks & Grads- Pt 1

CASON #spokanesenior19

This session with Cason and his truck has to be one of my favorite sessions of all time!  I am always trying to talk clients into doing photographs that are out of the box.  Occasionally, I work with someone that will listen to my crazy suggestion and then trust me to execute them!  Cason was up for some crazy fun and willing to go with me when I suggested we take his truck four-wheeling here in the Valley for his Senior portraits. We drove all over the hills in the Valley for the perfect shots!

It had been months of smokey skies the day before we shot this session.  I told Cason’s mom that we may have to give up our hope of city lights.  I went to bed trying to figure out an alternative plan that would give the “bang” that I was trying to deliver.   The winds blustered all night and we even got a light rain, (bringing on a fresh new set of concerns).  Then morning came. It was clear, a spectacular day with sunsets that I dream about! What a sight!  We finished up the night with some sunset shots over the Valley with his beautiful girl and then the cherry on top- city lights.  We added a red flash under the truck for an extra dash of awesome!  Thanks Cason for letting me play with your truck and being a good sport!

Life & Pictures

Little did I know that a bittersweet loss would blossom into a new friend. In 2010, this young woman moved into the house next door with her family. My family was grieving over the loss of the previous owner, who had become more than a close friend. It had taken a very long time to make a friend in our neighborhood.  Watching our dear friend pack up her home and  move away was heartbreaking.  When Tiffany’s family moved in, I was determined that they would feel welcome.  It wasn’t going to take months or years to make a friend! About two minutes after they arrived,  I shouted across the back fence at her mother, a boisterous, “Welcome to the neighborhood, if you need anything please let us know.”  I imagine today that my attempt at being friendly was probably terrifying!  Needless to say, over a very short time, we were friends.  As luck would have it, boisterous fence yelling was just their style! Both of our families have since moved to new homes but we have remained friends (to my delight)!  It was so exciting for me to be able to photograph her!

In August, we drove out to some private property owned by a family friend. It was a beautiful man-made pond in the middle of farm fields. Although it had been raining, the sky cleared into a beautiful night!   We spent a couple of hours photographing Tiffany at different point in and around the pond.

Beautiful Julia | Spokane Senior

 

Spokane, WA Senior Girl

Here is the very lovely Julia! We met at three separate locations for Julia’s senior portraits.  We started at her home and then moved to a local park.  We finished up our session with the sweeping views of the Spokane High Bridges.  I love the first image with her hair flying in the wind.  I feel like it depicts her looking forward into her very bright future!

I hate photographs of me | siriani photography


MY STORY

I HATE photographs of myself.  There is a reason I am BEHIND the camera, it’s a way to hide without making excuses.  “I’ll take the photo” is a way to not be in the photo.  I am tired of looking at photographs and not feeling beautiful.  It was time to get out from behind my camera and prove that I actually exist. However, being in front of the camera is not enough.  I also want to like what I see.  I get it, I really do. It’s why I got into this business 9 years ago.

With two children and my youngest was 6, I looked around and realized that we had no family portraits.  It was so sad.  So, I called a huge number of photographers here in Spokane and explained that I was curvy woman. I asked a simple question, can you post me to look as good I can look? Call after call I had well known photographers here in Spokane tell me, “I don’t pose people” or “I do natural posing”.  I started to wonder what I was hiring these people to do.  I could take photographs of myself in a “natural” pose and we all know what that will end up looking like.  If this was the best Spokane could offer than… wow.  This business needs me.

So, I took on the challenge of photographing myself. You can see the results below.  If I can do this for myself, imagine what I can do for you.

I GET WOMEN

I understand women.  They want to look at a photograph and feel beautiful.  I want that for the women in my photographs more than anything else.  I get it.  I am you.  I have worked for years to consistently improve how women look in photographs.  I love photographing women of ALL shapes, sizes, and ages.  You are beautiful at every phase in life.  I want desperately, desperately for you to see what is beautiful about you AND I WILL FIND IT.  I WILL find it. I can take women who have not been in front of the camera in a loooong time and change the way they feel about being photographed. I can do this for you, my dear.  I can.

THE PLAN

So, I made a decision.  I am going to show women what is at the very heart of my photographs.  I want you to feel beautiful when you look at your photographs.  This Fall, I am going to put together some very special pricing for women who are willing to give me a chance to show you what I see.  Are you ready for a beautiful, contemporary, feminine portrait? Stay tuned for more details of these sessions for women who are camera-phobic. What can I do for you?   blogIMG_8294 blogIMG_8312 blogIMG_8296IMG_8335 IMG_8353
