Interview with Marissa Bates - Silver Lake Grad Class of 2018 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

We had a really great time with Marissa! She was very photogenic and happy to have her portraits done. She wanted primarily country / rural setting which honestly isn't as common. Lots of seniors want urban, downtown alleys, etc so that was a nice change and honestly, one thing I really enjoyed about her session was how the sun looked in her hair so that is something we are able to capture much more easily in a rural setting. I don't think we had a cloud in the sky which really gave us great light and at sunset and dusk the light was AMAZING!!! Marissa is an easy going girl with a beautiful smile! She was tons of fun to hang out with and photograph. Her outfits were great. Her locations were amazing. One of these images are definitely going to have to grace our walls at our display at the mall! I love them all!
