we love our schools... but it's SUMMER!!!

i know you're all deep into that summer vibe already, but i want to share a little about the different schools I have on my KPP model team.  i love working with students from all around the portland area! there's more that unites us than divides us. <3

below you'll see the schools currently represented on my model team: (nine girls from seven different schools)

if you don't see yours here, let's work together anyway!!! if you do see yours here, talk to one of these girls about working with me. 

(if you see a typo above, I DO TOO! I'M JUST BEING TOO LAZY TO CHANGE IT IN PHOTOSHOP! ignore it, or even better, leave a comment about a mistake or typo you've made in your life!)

we recently had a fun contest over on instagram @kp_portraits (BE SURE YOU'RE FOLLOWING!!)... the contest was a competition between schools and which ever school got the most comments on their photo won a little photoshoot with up to ten friends. sophie from TUALATIN HIGH SCHOOL won that and hosted her bff on her birthday for the shoot! so sweet!

congrats sophie!

loved working with you TuHS girls! 

senior portrait season is well underway!! I can't wait to start sharing with you this amazing class of 2018!

Class of KPP 2018 model team:

maybe you're wondering if Katie Prentiss Photography is a good fit for your senior portraits? 

here's a few questions you can ask yourself to see:

  • are you imperfect and make mistakes?
  • do you try to enjoy life but also work hard to do your best?
  • do you believe people are valuable beyond what they look like?
  • do you care about your inner beauty as much or even more than your outer looks?
  • do you want to remember this time in your life in a beautiful format? 
  • do you want a shoot that celebrates WHO you are as much as HOW you look? 
  • are you the type of person who wants to build others up? 

well, if you answered YES to most of those questions, you're in good company. we did too!

meet my #classofkpp model team. these are girls who encompass the above. and who would love to introduce you to what it would be like to work with KPP. there is too much in this world that tears us down and is a challenge to deal with. your senior portraits with KPP isn't one of them. 

take a peek at the beautiful faces below and know it's a small sampling of the energy, life, & beauty that working with KPP brings. 

KPP has three sessions left in JULY, four in AUGUST, and six in SEPTEMBER.

maybe one of these was meant for you! 

thank you my beautiful KPP model team for being examples to those who know you and love you.

introducing the 2018 KPP MODEL TEAM!

i am so pleased to introduce my new team of models for the class of 2018. these girls are the type of people i would want as friends, would trust to lead, and are standouts in their communities. they are the the type of people that only get more beautiful the more you know them. 

i ask them to model for me in ways that go well beyond the world's definition of model. we are more than an image to be viewed. we're going to work hard to see ourselves beyond that first glance and own what is unique about our own beauty. 

AND i really hope that they will introduce me to you because i want to invite you to join me in the same mission of seeing beauty differently and seeing it in ourselves. you are all welcome to take this journey with us... beyond typical photoshopped senior portraits... beyond the pressure of 'pretty'... and into portraits that empower us, build our confidence, and show appreciation for all that we've been given. 

want to join the KPP tribe? contact me asap to save your spot. xo.

TAYLOR. senior portraits.

TAYLOR >< Tualatin High School >< class of 2017

My last, but NOT LEAST 2017 senior session features this beauty + that gorgeous landscape of sauvie island. Taylor has a super comfortable vibe that was complimented well by the orchard and beaches of sauvie... and she brought her adorable PUP as well! LOVE. 

I loved working with her and I loved being on sauvie on a wintery day shooting- a big change from the summer sessions I'm used to there. Her session turned out to be amazing... she's not only a beautiful girl, she's super ambitious and really easy to be around. No wonder she's so loved by many. ;)

Taylor, thanks for giving me the honor of shooting your session!! I loved working with you, love the results, and can't wait to see what your future holds! 

JORDAN. senior portraits

JORDAN >< Tualatin High School >< Class of 2017

I love this session so much...not only because Jordan rocked it and looks amazing OR because we got to shoot it at their new home property that they hadn't even moved into yet, but partially because I love a challenge. And the challenge this day was that it was a COLD, WINTERY day...but it was NOT raining... so we went for it!

And I love how it turned out. The sky was foggy and cold when we began, but by the end of the session, it opened up some light on us. The results were just stunning. 

I will always love a good story for your senior portraits. This one was amazing to shoot in a beautiful place that this sweet family was about to call home. Not only will Jordan get to see how amazing she was back in this time of her life, but it will also flood memories of moving into this home while simultaneously moving out of the high school world. Those crossroads are just pretty magical to watch in our lives. 

 

Thanks Jordan and family for inviting me into this time of your lives and allowing me to capture Jordan's senior year portraits! <3 Y'all are awesome! 

CAL. senior portraits.

Cal was such a great guy to work with! His kind and easy demeanor made it a relaxed session. He chose a simple senior session down at the east side water front. I loved the fall color we grabbed, loved that he showed his musical talent in his session, and love that he let his little sister jump into a couple of the portraits. We're working on his senior grad announcements as I write this... so hard to believe that graduation is so close!! 

Wishing you all the success and happiness Cal! Thanks for being such a great guy! -kp

KATIE. senior portraits.

Cleveland High School >< class of 2017

All the Katie's are my favorite!! And this Katie certainly didn't disappoint! We actually met for her senior session at Reed and I had a blast exploring that place with her! It was a gorgeous fall day, Katie wore that adorable braid in her hair, and had the perfect three outfits for the shoot. I love that she threw her softball jersey on for a few quick shots too! 

Thanks for being easy to hang with Katie! You did amazing on your shoot... hope your senior year is finishing strong! xo. kp

KATHRYN. senior portraits.

Riverdale High School >< class of 2017

Kathryn choose a simple session for her senior portraits and we met in Laurelhurst park on a beautiful fall day!

Kathryn has the sweetest personality but right behind it is an old soul. I loved spending time with her during our shoot and viewing session.

can't wait to hear how your first year at SCAD goes kathryn!! <3

AUDREY. senior portraits.

tualatin high school >< class of 2017

audrey's shoot is super fun for me to share! i was so excited to get to do senior portraits with her twin sister ashlyn too... these girls are both fantastic and supportive of one another, but they are super unique from one another too! we worked hard to plan distinct shoots for both of them, and i love how their personalities showed through. 

we booked audrey's session at the rhododendron garden and i thought it just turned out so dreamy. she just looks so beautiful and serene in that setting. i feel so lucky to know audrey and her sister and can't wait to see where life will take them!

thanks audrey! you totally rocked this shoot and i love what we captured together! xo. kp

ASHLYN. senior portraits.

tualatin high school >< class of 2017

this blog post is super fun to share, because ashlyn is a twin... i loved that we planned two very distinct sessions for she and her sister audrey though. they really wanted to show their distinctions and uniqueness in their shoots. and i LOVED what we captured. 

ashlyn's session was on sauvie island, beginning in the orchard and historic farmhouse. following our time there, we moved to the river to get that beachy vibe which i think ashlyn totally rocked. i love how happy and naturally beautiful she looks here! i loved working with these two girls and even got to add on a family session for them a few months later... such great people!!

ashlyn... loved working with you!! wishing you the best for the remainder of your senior year!! xo. kp
