Senior Photographs, Spring 2016

High school graduation: that incomparably magical time of life when one story ends and another begins. When the known security of childhood is still large in the rear mirror and yet the unknown but exciting future of adulthood is within grasp. That time when you’re so full of energy and life and hope and plans and dreams… and it’s all bursting through your very seams.

There’s no way around it, this is a milestone that comes around only once. And, like all of life’s important moments, you’ll want to press pause for a moment to capture it.

All of this is why Senior Sessions are one of my favorites to shoot. I love getting to photograph each teen that I work with and to create a fun session that expresses theirown, unique personality, and taps into my own spirit of adventure. Paddleboarding, mountain biking, snowboarding or a walk around the lake… our area is literally primed for it.

Whatever adventure awaits your Senior in the future, let’s start it now with my Senior Spring Special.

Thanks for stopping by. Check in every so often to see recent photography sessions, weddings, and family fun. I also post little tidbits about my life and work so you can get to know me a little better. Take a peek, enjoy, and let me know what you think!

Lisa Richmond Photography_2641Wow!  Hard to believe that Keegan is already graduating from El Dorado High School.  It seems like just yesterday he was 5 years old and we were having our very first photography session with his sister Caitlin.  It really has been that long!  Following clients through the many stages of their lives is what makes my job so rewarding and FUN, and I am so happy that I got the opportunity to chronicle this latest rite of passage for Keegan.

Keegan likes to work out, as you can probably tell from the pictures.   In fact, we share the same personal trainer!  However, if our trainer is looking for a poster child, I have a feeling Keegan has got me beat…#fitnessgoals, ha!  Workout humor aside, I really enjoyed capturing Keegan’s fun spirit in his senior session, especially when he brought in his awesome truck for a few shots.  It’s always great when seniors bring something that they love and value to their sessions – those things that inspire and drive them.  For Keegan, that special something wasn’t just his truck – but Mom, too!  I’m liking this kid better and better all of the time. 😉

Best of luck to you Keegan on your new adventure studying Electrical Engineering and Business Finance at the University of Montana, Bozeman.  Thank you for including me in your important milestone.  Congratulations and keep in touch!

Lisa Richmond Photography_2587Last week I met up with Little Miss Madelyn and her mom, Michelle at Larsen’s Apple Barn Park (thank you Lynn) for some photographs in the beautiful morning light to capture this big, happy ball of personality. What a love! I’ve been photographing Michelle and Tim since their engagement and am always happy to get to spend some time with their family. Before you know it, a year will have passed and Little Madelyn will be celebrating her first birthday. Crazy…it does go that fast.  Lisa Richmond Photography_2583 Lisa Richmond Photography_2586 Lisa Richmond Photography_2584 Lisa Richmond Photography_2576 Lisa Richmond Photography_2577 Lisa Richmond Photography_2582 Lisa Richmond Photography_2581 Lisa Richmond Photography_2578 Lisa Richmond Photography_2585 Lisa Richmond Photography_2579

    BEAUTIFUL!!! As always, in AWE of your work!

Lisa Richmond Photography_2569Early one morning last week, my trusty assistant (and daughter) Jaz and I headed out to meet Ayumi and her mom, Akemi. A field of green, wet with the morning dew and the moisture of a rainy spring, greeted us as we captured Ayumi in the soft morning light(and a few bugs too). Later this spring, she will be graduating from high school and heading onto California State University, Fullerton to continue her interest in theatre. A beautiful young lady, a bright smile, a cute hat and all that with her bold dreams ahead of her. I’m not normally a morning riser but for this type of fun, count me in! Thank you to Akemi and Les for trusting me to capture these moments for you.

After about two weeks of gorgeous spring weather here in the mountains we awoke to Nyron’s first birthday session and rain in the forecast just like Kailey’s maternity session. Since it was his actual birthday, we decided to not let a little rain get in our way(just like when he was in Mom’s tummy) and all met to capture the smiles of this growing baby resembling more today, “a little boy”.  It does go by so fast.

A bright red wagon, a colorful bunch of balloons gathered by Dad earlier that morning as he was getting off work from his EMT shift, cute celebratory bunting made with love by Mom and the bright green backdrop of Larsen’s Apple Barn park (thank you Lynn), the stage was set for our own celebration …and an hour or so of chasing a busy, little-one around.

Nyron cried, smiled, and laughed as he explored the muddy park on his hands and knees.

The session ended with a traditional cake smash and a lemon cake made by Mom to die for! Thank you Kailey and Matt for it ALL…starting with your engagement session at Towne Center to your wedding in Bodega Bay, to your maternity session atop of that rainy hill in Placerville to his birth at Marshall and the sessions all year long…it has been an adventure and honor for me. Your love for each other always shines through. You know I love you all! Congratulations!
