Lindsey Overstreet

Photographing LCA seniors is some of the easiest work I’ve done. When it comes to getting photographed, they are up for anything, always kind, and fun to be around. And they are always so gosh darn cute. Senior portraits have come a long way since I was in high school. The girls are dolled up and get dressed up – I wore jeans, Nike shoes (they were from my trip to Europe so I thought I was super cool) and a purple t-shirt. And I took some with a buttoned up cardigan. My photos don’t look bad at all, but I definitely had a casual vibe for my whole session…I don’t know, maybe it’s because I was kind of a tomboy. At that age, I only wore dresses for special occasions such as graduations and weddings. I guess my wardrobe for my senior portraits represented who I was at the time. All that to say: as a photographer, I love it when people bring their sense of style and dress up a bit more for their photos. In the long run, I think they will be glad they got dressed up too.

Lindsey did such a great job of selecting her outfits. She had a mix of everything: cute, casual, classic, and a little bit country. She was also down for whatever ideas I had.  There was a small, dried-up strip of land that ran through the middle of this giant lake-pond-I don’t know what you call it-thing. Toward the end of her session with the last bit of light left, we walked over there and finished up her senior portraits. I loved the combo of her skirt and cowboy boots with the cracked soil.

Every once in a while, her mom and I would encourage her to do a “serious” face (I pretty much tell the girls to just relax their face without smiling and it seems to translate better). She’s such a good sport because she did it, even though she LOVES to smile.

Smiling’s her favorite.

She’s Buddy the Elf.

When someone has the instinct to do something in their session, it’s good to just let them do it. I grabbed some shots of her serious face, but I preferred not to focus on that too much because her bright smile is really her trademark, and I wanted her photos to reflect that. This entire session was easy peasy, and I’m so thankful these LCA students are entrusting their senior portraits to me! I love what I do, and I am looking forward to putting more time and energy into my passion this year.
