It is time to nominate a current high school senior for the Style ReDefined Award! This award goes to a current high school senior (class of 2016) in Northern Colorado who has positively affected their school and community by the "Style" that they live their life.  I am not referring to fashion style!  This person has a personal "style" of living and respecting others that improves the entire community.  You can read about last year's Style ReDefined Winner, Chandler Lowham, in Vol 3 of Twelfth Year magazine by clicking here.

What does the Style ReDefined winner receive?  This special person receives a 2 hour portrait session, a styling consultation to plan the session, professional make up application, a print package and a feature in Twelfth Year magazine.  This entire award is valued at $740!  

The idea is to celebrate and share the story of a high school senior who makes a positive difference - perhaps someone who has met with difficult circumstances but still found a way to uplift and encourage others.  You may nominate someone for this honor by clicking clicking here.  Nominations close on February 24, 2016.

I look forward to hearing about the seniors you nominate and meeting the 2016 winner!

This year we did something new with the Senior Model team.  Four of the 2016 Senior Models participated in a fashion couture event very unlike a regular senior photo session.   This photo shoot was separate from their Senior Portrait Session and the intent was not to create a yearbook photo!  This session was a fun, out of the box, fashion editorial shoot to create images that highlight the talent of our model team, make up artist, hair stylist and fashion design intern.  Our theme for this shoot was STRONG|CONFIDENT|BEAUTIFUL and everything from apparel to make up to hair to location was planned to communicate these qualities in our amazing high school senior models.  

We began planning this photo shoot last winter.  The goal was to stretch our creative abilities and create a unique image for each model that captured their personal strength, confidence and beauty.  It all came together beautifully thanks to the incredible talents of our creative team and the maturity and eagerness of our the models that chose to participate.  Here are the details of our Fashion Couture Shoot:

EVENT

Of course, we had to share these lovely images so we held a Gallery Event on October 28 at FASTFRAME's new location in the Front Range Village Shopping Center.  The images looked amazing printed on Fine Art paper!  Besides, munching on cookies donated by Mary's Mountain Cookies and sipping sparkling beverages, those who attended donated to the family of Blake Miller to help cover the costs of her medical treatment.  Blake was diagnosed with stage 3, high risk neuroblastoma at the age of 17 months.  We are thrilled to tell you that we raised over $500 to help Blake's family with expenses. Blake has successfully recovered from surgery and her prognosis is good!!  If you would like to help the Miller family with continued expenses as they work with Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York to monitor Blake's health, you can do that by clicking here.

 

Now, I am guessing that you would like to see these images!  Here they are:

Michaela, a Senior from Rocky Mountain High School, is one of those girls you just love being around.  She is simply bursting with positive energy!  So, you can imagine how much fun it is to photograph Michaela and her big beautiful smile.  Since Michaela is a 2016 CSP Senior Model, I have photographed her several times this year.  But the High School Senior Session is my favorite session because it focuses on the Senior's own personality and style.  Michaela brought a tremendous amount of style to her Senior Session wearing a sequined prom dress, denim and boots and everything in between!  And, of course we had to throw in a flower crown and a cool hat!  And this sweet girl rocked it all!

 

Michaela, a volleyball player for RMHS, has some great advice for freshman intimidated by the upperclassmen and overwhelmed by high school.  "It gets easier.  Go to as many sporting events, dances, performances as possible to get the most out of your time here," she suggests while also warning of the need to stay on top of homework and get enough sleep.  "Just have fun throughout high school because it is the shortest four years of your life and you'll wonder where all the time went," she added.  So true, Michaela!

At the end of April's 2016 Senior Portrait Session, she nicknamed the session "Fire and Ice."  A perfect nickname for the day! We began at a park with beautiful sunshine but as we arrived in Old Town Fort Collins, a rain storm threatened to interrupt April's Senior Photos.  However, when we handed her an umbrella, this sweet girl decided to have fun with it!  Looking beautiful in all kinds of weather, April was radiant all the way to the end as we finished with sparklers!

 April, a Fossil Ridge High School Senior, is known for her positive attitude and work ethic, traits that led her to become Color Guard Captain with the award winning FRHS marching band.  During her senior year, she plans to begin her college career early and take classes at Front Range Community College.  Eventually, she plans to graduate from Colorado State University with a degree in social work.  When asked what advice she would give to incoming high school freshman, April suggested they fall in love.

"Allow yourself to fall in love with something that interests you.  It doesn't have to be what everyone else is doing, it doesn't even have to be a school related sport or activity.  As long you are involved in something that makes you happy outside of your school workload.  I fell in love with color guard, made a family and have memories to last a lifetime," said April.

Excellent advice, April!  

CSP Seniors strives to provide a unique experience for every senior while creating authentic, modern photography that reflects the individual.  I think April's Fire and Ice session was perfect for a girl destined to set the world on fire.

I am just thrilled to introduce you to the last - and certainly not the least - CSP 2016 Senior Model.  Tara Teslow of Fossil Ridge High School has attended the last two Reveal Parties for Twelfth Year magazine and I have been waiting for her junior year when I could invite her to be on the Senior Model team.  This lovely high school junior is just plain fun to be around. Her beaming smile, sarcastic sense of humor and bold confidence make for a very fun photo shoot.  

 

I have always known that Tara is an excellent tennis player and recently got to watch her win a singles match for the FRHS girls' tennis team.  But I just found out that she is also very talented on the piano - wondering if I can get her to play sometime.  This Taylor Swift loving girl plans to pursue a career in physical therapy.  And, I have no doubt that Tara can accomplish any goal she sets!

 

Tara looks beautiful modeling a scarf from the CSP Accessory Closet in her Model Session photos below.  And on May 5, you will see Tara wearing the latest in upscale Boho style from BUCKLE in the newest edition of Twelfth Year magazine.  Follow Cindy Short Photography on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter or sign up for our email list to make sure you don't miss a thing when Twelfth Year is released!
