Ariana — Oregon Senior Session Review

Olivia Renee Seniors | | Portland Senior Photographer | Ariana Fall Senior Session

Dear Senior,

You are about to embark on a journey that I am so excited for you to experience. You will be on a rollercoaster ride and uncover layers to yourself that you didn’t believe were there all along. The confidence that will exude from you will be highlighted and your true character will shine through every photo Olivia takes.

As I was a little Freshman trying to find my way through my new life of high school, I always looked to the Seniors for guidance. Senior photos were always a dream to me because it was a set of pictures that showcased who YOU are and what YOU bring to the world. That’s why picking the best senior photographer was the most important to me because I wanted every essence of myself captured through the lens.

Lucky for you, you have found the lovely, sweet, and so incredibly talented Olivia Renee. Olivia is someone who has always been near and dear to my heart for as long as I’ve known her. She has exceeded all of my expectations that I could possibly think of and is all around a genuine person. Not only did my photos end up looking more spectacular than I could have ever dreamed but I developed a close bond with her as well.

She showed me that self confidence isn’t as hard to find in myself as I believed it was. To this day I am so thankful for the opportunities she has given me and the life lessons she taught me along the way. Leading into senior year I was definitely overcome with lots of worry and stress because I wasn’t ready to face the thought of my last year. However Olivia opened my eyes and even helped me break out of the fear of senior year.

As the time drew closer and closer to the date of my senior session my mom and I met with Olivia to go over my outfit choices, makeup looks, what and what not to-dos, and the overall vibe I was going for. She made sure that everything was well thought out and by the time we got to the senior session there wouldn’t be last minute stress.

During the photoshoot itself Olivia knew exactly what would look the best therefore she helped me with how to pose correctly and what expressions I should be making in order to look carefree. She even put on music to ease any nerves that would be there to relax me and to make sure I was having an amazing time. As the session began to end I was overcome with a very bittersweet feeling because I had so much fun creating my senior portfolio and I didn’t want it to end but yet I was so excited to see how the images would turn out. After the shoot wrapped up Olivia gave me a very sweet gift and we then planned to meet for the portrait reveal.

The end of the experience is the portrait reveal!! This was definitely one of my favorite parts because I got to see the end results of all of the photos! On the day of the reveal Olivia was fully prepared and had a slideshow filled with all of the beautiful photos. Seeing the photos for the first time I was blown away at how amazing they turned out and my mom even shed a few tears looking at the full portfolio.

In the end, I am so incredibly excited for you to see for yourself the true essence of an Olivia Renee senior experience! It was a highlight of my senior year and I know that my whole family and I appreciated everything she has done for us. It is truly unlike anything you will have experienced thus far and here’s to a bomb senior year and some bomb senior photos!

Xoxo, Ariana
