Helina and I have been working on the theme and concept for the creative half of her senior portraits since we photographed her older sister’s senior portraits. With Helina’s love of all things Italian and my love of vintage fashion we decided on theme that can best be described as Audrey Hepburn as shot for Vogue Italia. Our locale is the fabulous Taylor Mansion in Taylor, Texas a place with it’s own history and stories to tell. We loved using their Victorian-styled drawing room downstairs and the intricate stained glass hallway upstairs. We Highly Recommend the staff and venue for portrait sessions and weddings, just has a vibe about it.
For the second half of our shoot we explored downtown Taylor with its different era buildings and background playing host to our photographic whims. Helina’s blue outfit contrasted amazingly with the red door we found in one alley. An abandoned loading dock with green hues paired well with our letter jacket pose and the Pflugerville HS blue. This was our first time in downtown Taylor and we are definitely heading back, we saw some great urban textures that would look super for other portraits including a green wall with frosted glass that intrigues me.
Thanks to Ashley for helping us out on this shoot and a big thanks to Helina for collaborating on such an amazing Senior Session. Make sure and give her lots of love in the comments!
