{Josh|High School Senior Session}Clinton Indiana High School Senior Photographer

Josh is a Senior at S.V. H. S. in Clinton. He is graduating next month!

I met Josh when I photographed his sister’s wedding this past October. He has such a wonderful family! The whole family, along with Josh’s girlfriend met up Jen and I at Fairbanks Park. The weather has been so beautiful for sessions and this day was no different.

Jen Stow of Jen Rinaldi Photographer (http://blog.jenrinaldiphotography.com/) was here for this session too. 🙂

Here are a few of my favorites!

{Amanda|High School Senior Session} Clinton Indiana High School Senior Photographer

Meet Amanda!! She is a 2012 Senior at S.V. in Clinton. I met her when she was a Sophomore while her and my daughter were in choir together. Amanda is so sweet and pretty. She also has this amazingly cute little girl!

I shot this session with my good friend Jen Stow from Virginia (http://blog.jenrinaldiphotography.com/ ). Jen was visiting so we tag teamed for a few sessions while she was here. I always enjoy her visits and working with her on sessions. I won’t post her photos, but when she gets hers up, I’ll update this to include the link.

We met in Clinton for her session. Most people miss the great opportunities that their little cities give. You may have lived there all your life and think, “there isn’t anything cool in ___________”, but if you look close enough you’ll find great places for pictures. I’m still discovering little places in my town.

Hello Beautiful!

Thank you Amanda for allowing Jen and I to capture your Senior photos!! Good luck in all you do!

{Brandon~2012 Senior/Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics and Humanities}Terre Haute,Indiana High School Senior Photographer

I met Brandon’s mom while she was attending a wedding I was photographing. I’m not total strangers to this family though. I’ve photographed some of her family members for almost 2 years.

Brandon chose to have studio pictures done vs going outside. This was a very good decision as it was misting heavily and very windy. Not a good day for outside pictures. His sister got in on a few pictures. Their mom showed me the last picture they had taken of the two of them together. It looks like it had been a little while. 🙂

I prefer to shoot in natural light when possible, but I always bring my studio lights and umbrellas for when natural light isn’t enough. Thankfully, they had two large windows that I was able to use. I did use one of my studio lights set at its brightest, just to give me a little more boost of light. Sometimes I have to increase my ISO to allow more light in. When you do that, we will see an increase in grain. My D700 handles higher ISO’s a little better than my D90.

Doesn’t he look like a young Steve Jobs??

{9 Month Session ~ “C”} Terre Haute Indiana Photographer

I’m often asked what my favorite sessions are and that is such a hard question to answer. I love different parts of certain sessions. Even though newborns take a lot of work and patience, I love how tiny they are. I love to capture the love of that the parents and siblings feel towards this new life. I could shoot newborn sessions every day. I also love shooting infants when they are able to sit up. They don’t crawl yet, their personalities are starting to emerge with big smiles and laughs. Then fast forward to the toddler stage, LOVE the energy and them running all over and just enjoying life! I love the older kids and their ability to take direction…I love boosting confidence in preteens. Senior sessions are awesome too. So many directions their lives can take…sigh. ❤

Anyway, I said all that to say that I loved this session!! I have actually loved every session that I’ve had with this family. The little one….oooh he’s just so cute!! I also love the oldest one. He is ALL boy! I love his energy. His mom takes pictures….I’ll bet she gets a ton of awesome photographs of him in action. Love it!!


J.T~2011 Senior/Clinton and Terre Haute Indiana High School Senior

J.T. and I met up a little while ago before the snow began to fall and the temps took a nose dive. That’s why it looks so warm in these pics. 🙂 He’s a great kid with an awesome smile!

J.T. graduates from South Vermillion in May.

Here are some of my favorites.

2012 South Vermillion Senior Rep/Clinton Indiana

Meet Brittany, my 2012 Senior Rep for South Vermillion. I know she’s only in the second half of her Junior year, but I have some really cool ideas that I want to try out that I hadn’t been able to in the past. Brittany is up for anything, which I’m glad. I had received two prom dresses from a friend of mine and Wednesday when Britt was over I had this idea of photographing her in one of these dresses in the snow. I am SO glad she was down with it because I think these pictures are some of my favorite images. I love the feel of the images.

Britt wore her boots and thick leggings so half of her would be warm. lol Total pictures taken: 60, time it took: 30 minutes….not too bad huh?

If you are a 2011 Senior and haven’t had your Senior Pictures taken yet, or you will be a 2012 Senior, email me at: info@julielawsonphotography.com to schedule a fun and unique Senior session. I love to work with you to create a session that you will love.

Snowball Dance 2010/Terre Haute Indiana Photographer

I’m about to get a little sappy here, so just hold on. 🙂

Terre Haute holds the Snowball Dance for the 6-8  graders in the Terre Haute area every December. So, this is a bittersweet post for me and “K”s mom as well. I have photographed “K” getting ready for the Snowball dance since she was in 6th grade.

“K” is an 8th grader and will go on to High School in the fall. I have worked with her mom for years and every year she asks me to document the fun and friendships while they get ready for their Cinderella moment. I’m sad that there won’t be anymore dance pictures to take of her…at least not for a couple of years anyway. I’m sure I’ll take prom pics when that time comes. 🙂

Enjoy my favorites!
