How Do I Tell My Story? | St Charles Photographer

How do I tell my story?

As an urban photographer in St Charles, with so many backdrop choices, I’m asked how to pick the right location or backdrop to capture their story for the final year in high school. Over the years I’ve found many locations to fit each senior’s personality. Today I’m sharing a few locations from my St Charles photography, to Sycamore to Geneva to Elgin. There is a perfect location to match your story.

When you fill out your senior questionnaire I gather ideas of what you’re looking for and we can curate your day from locations, wardrobe, hobbies, music, and all the little details in between.

I am your visual StoryTeller writing this last chapter with you.

You + your parents can think of it as your very first autobiography.

SMP sessions are tailored to you, so don’t think just because you like the same location as your best friend that your portraits will look exactly the same. No one can be you! Literally No ONE. It’s biologically impossible.

See where I’m going with this?

NO ONE CAN TELL YOUR STORY THE WAY YOU CAN

Think of places you like to visit + backdrops that bring a smile to your day.

1\Natural Areas:: Do you love parks + water? Let’s look more towards nature, with trees, flowers, trails + creeks.

2\Urban:: Are you energized by the bustling city streets and their coffee houses, shops, eclectic buildings, and people meandering about?

3\Are you a shopper? Let’s take a walk around the downtown streets of St. Charles or Geneva. Cityscapes with buildings, ally-ways, and cafe’s bring out a day on Rodeo Drive vibe. We can walk and stop in front of those colorful backdrops and your story sparkles!

4\Are you more ESPN style? Let’s hit the ball fields, track, or courts.

5\Theater and music lovers? We’ll use sheet music + instruments, the stage, your costumes, Orchesis wardrobe, or the dance studio.

Almost anything that brings out your sparkle can be done. I’ve even had a senior bring HER HARP to the session, with a dolly and all to move it into place. She really loves playing her harp, so we added that piece of her story.
