I'm still wrapping up posting about the class of 2012, but if you are in the class of 2013, it's not too early to start thinking about your Senior session. I've got a great promo for sessions booked and shot in July - so stay tuned for more details! "Like" Cardas Photography on Facebook for the most up to date announcements.
One of the great things about shooting in Bandon is the diversity of scenery. We have beautiful pine forests, vast burgundy cranberry bogs, the crashing ocean, calm rivers and streams and golden grass fields - along with pristinely kept golf courses!
Hannah is an avid golfer and a caddy at Bandon Dunes, so we wanted to capture that love on the course. We were escorted out to the edge of the continent by golf cart (Really! The 16th and 17th greens of the Dunes course is literally on the farthest edge of Oregon!) Hannah and her mom squeezed inside with our driver, and I held on for dear life on the back!
With 50 mph winds, hair is usually the first thing to go, but Hannah pushed through!
I Love love love the Orange and Black and shoes of course! Too many to share here - check out more from Hannah's golf inspired Senior Session >>>> HERE <<<<
Who needs a fan when you have the Oregon Coast! Weather is an issue here every. single. day. I have found that if I reschedule for weather I would never work, at least not here! lol Whether it's rain or just plain wind, there is adventure every day in capturing images my clients will love no matter what! Wind however is one of the most challenging aspects of living on the Oregon Coast. I love it - it adds texture and dimension to hair and clothes - why do you think they always have them pointed at models in magazines and on the runway? It is harder to deal with real life swirling wind as the "model." It can sometimes be frustrating, and that does show through the camera sometimes. Katelynn however totally went with it! So long as your face is showing joy - I can deal with the windblown hair.
And there is nothing wrong with straight up holding your hair down. LOL Way to rock it Katelynn! Check out more from her wind blown Senior Session >>>HERE<<<
When we plan out a Senior Session, location is usually topic number one! Autumn really wanted railroad tracks - something we just don't have in Bandon, so we decided on Downtown Coos Bay for her shoot. We had a blast and found some wonderful spots! We had so much fun that we were in our cars before we remembered about the tracks!! I'm glad we didn't forget, as Autumn rocked them!
(And, quick note on the railroad tracks: these are mothballed tracks that are no longer in use, and are in a very public touristy location. Most tracks are illegal and dangerous to be walk on and I would never put the safety of my subjects at risk for a photograph)
