We kicked off our summer Senior Portrait Sessions for the Class of 2016 with Gabe Pagat from Fossil Ridge High School.  I am really excited to share his session as inspiration for high school senior boys!  Gabe rocked the prep guy style in button-down shirts from Polo and Tommy Hilfiger.  He mixed it up by alternating denim and khaki pants with a pair of walking shorts.  I love this style for men and boys!  Because of its origin in sports (button down shirts were designed for polo riders), the button down shirt is the least dressy shirt collar making them a perfect casual choice for any occasion.  We always recommend that our clients bring 3 to 4 clothing choices and we will select the best location to compliment their style.  For Gabe's style, we chose the alleys of Old Town Fort Collins and then headed to a natural area to match his love of the outdoors. 

The day after we captured his Senior Photos, Gabe flew to Hawaii to visit family and spend the summer eating fresh pineapple on the beach.   Yep, I am a little bit jealous.  He will return in time to start his senior year playing on FRHS's Boys Tennis Team.  As he begins to fill out college applications, his favorite quote and advice for younger teens is "Keep Moving Forward."  Wise words, Gabe!

I am so thrilled to introduce Chandler Lowham from Fossil Ridge High School as our first Style ReDefined Senior!  Now, I am sure you are wondering what Style ReDefined means so, let me explain.  Back in December of 2014, we began to plan for the Spring 2015 release of Vol. 3 of Twelfth Year magazine.  This issue would feature the CSP 2016 Senior Models wearing apparel and accessories from local stores and boutiques that highlight the year's hottest trends.  With the main focus being fashion, we wanted to include another definition of beauty and style.  At Cindy Short Photography, we have always believed that the most beautiful portraits come from connecting with the subject.  It is this connection that allows the camera to capture the person's true spirit, their authentic beauty.  

So, my studio manager, Tonya and I went to dinner and brainstormed.  The result is Style ReDefined.  It means that true style is not about fashion and the clothes you wear but the way in which you live your life.  True style is seen in how you interact with your peers and community.  True style is seen in the effect you have on those around you.  A Style ReDefined Senior realizes that he or she can make a difference and create change by encouraging and uplifting the people in his or her school and community.

To select the first Style ReDefined Senior, we collected nominations from the current senior class at local schools.  Hearing peers, family and a teacher/track coach talk about Chandler Lowham made the selection easy.  Chandler embodies all of the characteristics that we were seeking.  In fact, three words were repeatedly used to describe Chandler:  Caring, Compassionate and Selfless.  Chandler is known for supporting and encouraging her peers despite her own struggles.  Read more about her perseverance and extraordinary attitude in Twelfth Year magazine by clicking here.

So, of course we had to do a photo session!  After the professional make up application, Chandler and I headed out to Poudre River Stables in Fort Collins.  This down to earth girl just glows in the light of a barn on one of my favorite spots.  Next, we went to Horsetooth Reservoir for a more dramatic backdrop.  Chandler was a great sport when I asked her to hold a scarf that looks like an American flag.  These photos of Chandler will take your breath away, she is truly beautiful in every way.

I am so excited to introduce you to CSP 2016 Senior Model Arti Pandey!  This stunning student from Fossil Ridge High School is a ton of fun! Her energy and confidence lights up a room and can make an ordinary day feel like a party.  I love Arti's hard working and goal-oriented personality and that she balances her desire to one day be a CEO with her love to volunteer.  Currently, Arti is an Honor Student, part of FRHS's Ambassador Program and a member of the FRHS tennis team.  

At the time of her Model Session, Arti had long hair that she never wore in an updo.  I love the look Ali, our hair stylist, created for Arti - so elegant!  Arti now has an adorable bob that looks amazing with the apparel and accessories she is modeling from GG Boutique in the new issue of Twelfth Year magazine to be released May 5!

The first time I met Rocky Mountain High School student Holly Mackie, she had a black eye from playing basketball!  This stunning blue-eyed blonde is quite the athlete and not only plays on RMHS's basketball team but also has the coordination to catch food in her mouth!  A talent I cannot master!  

But we do share a love for watching the television show Nashville and shopping at BUCKLE - both activities that take less coordination.  I am so excited that Holly is on the CSP 2016 Senior Model team because I get to photograph her for a whole year!  And hanging out with this happy girl makes for a wonderful day.  During Holly's Model Session, our hair stylist gave her a fun side braid.  I love this look in Holly's photos below!  Look for Holly modeling a drop dead gorgeous prom dress from Dora Grace Bridal in the upcoming issue of Twelfth Year magazine.

Meet CSP 2016 Senior Model Michaela Kriewall from Rocky Mountain High School.  While she was in make up for her Model Session, there was quite the debate about which famous actress Michaela resembles.  She reminds me of Lily James, the actress who plays Cinderella in the new movie from Walt Disney Productions.  You see it too, don't you?

Michaela is quite the beauty but she is no delicate princess!  This year-round volleyball player is quite the competitor on both Rocky Mountain and club teams.  She is also an artist and creates the most amazing nail art.  What I love about Michaela is her infectious, happy personality!  She lights up a room with her cheerfulness.  Michaela admits that she sleeps a lot - maybe that is the secret to her abundant energy!
