Today we’re featuring a senior session from Texas photographer, Aubry Ramsey! Her work has been featured several times on the Senior Inspire Instagram page as Pass the Sugar Photography, but she recently changed her studio name to Aubry Ramsey Photography. Check out her work – it’s pretty incredible!
Here’s what Aubry had to say about this session…
“Let’s go ahead and get it out of the way……….WOWZERS, what a handsome young man, right? And those outfits are ON POINT!!! Everything from the amazing hair to the outfits and the perfect locations were a huge team effort from myself, Cooper and his amazing Mom. Every Senior session is unique because every Senior is unique and my job is to tell the story of what make them so “them”!“
“This all takes an immense amount of communication and getting to know your Senior. As I always do, the first 10 minutes I just hang out and talk to my Senior to reconnect. The key is for them to be completely relaxed and comfortable, with this big clunky thing we call a camera, in their face for two hours. I usually give them a quick run down of how the day will go and what I expect from them. I wanted to capture Cooper’s edgy, rocker side so Graffiti park was a perfect fit. He literally “rocked” this look. wink wink… After showing Cooper a few of the pictures, he was like “WOW, that looks great” and instant trust was gained and he became totally relaxed. Again, there is that whole communication thing…… 😉“
“Next we took it to an old park with a ball field. I chose this location for many reasons. First, because it was simple and I wanted Cooper to really POP with this outfit since it had great color. Also because baseball was a huge part of his high school career. He didn’t want to do any baseball themed pictures but by having the chain link fence and bleachers in his pictures, it represented that part of his life. He will be going to Texas A&M and pursuing a career in medicine so the very tailored, almost professional looking, outfit matched with the rugged ball field was a must combination for me! Cooper’s images turned out perfectly and they truly tell the story of this monumental time in his life, with a hint of what the future holds for him.“
“I chose this session for two reasons. First, guy sessions are a blast and so easy going. Secondly, because I feel like guys kind of get put on the back burner when it comes to Senior sessions. I find it so refreshing to see Senior sessions of guys that show personality and thought. In a lot of ways guys are easier, but in many ways they are more difficult and, as a photographer, you have to dig deep to get creative. I LOVE that challenge.”
