Central PA Senior Portrait Session: Alyvia

Alyvia’s creative Central PA Senior Portrait Session included autumn leaves, purple mountains, sweet freckles, and most of all, her golden presence :).  Alyvia is intelligent, kind, and strong– my goal is to capture her inner glow in these photos, too.  I hope it shines through!

Why Rhinehart Photography?

Alyvia shares, “I have seen all of the work Lisa has done and was extremely impressed and wanted my senior photos to look the best they possibly can. One of Lisa’s strengths is finding all the good angles. In my photos, I’m hoping my essence is captured through the photos.”

Interesting Angles

I love to get lower or higher than we are used to looking at the world.  It gives you a unique vantage point, in this case, you could really see the gold leaves here!  Or in the following images the blue glow of the overcast sky and Alyvia’s silhouette:

Her Golden Presence

Alyvia shares, “My grandma always says I have a golden presence.  I asked what she meant by golden she said that gold is a very eye-catching color and the presence I bring always catches someone’s eye. This is why she calls it “a golden presence”.”

I love that concept and set out to capture her ‘golden presence’ in a more figurative than literal way!  Also, aren’t her freckles the sweetest?

Purple Mountains & Mr Z

Living in the Cumberland Valley has its real advantages.  One advantage is the incredible view of the mountains from just about anywhere, like Shippensburg, Chambersburg, Mechanicsburg, or Carlisle.  Here they almost appear purple- such a pretty background to work in and perfect for Alyvia’s central PA senior portrait session!

Alyvia shares, “I went to Elementary School at the Lab school on campus at Shippensburg University.  Gblues felt like my home as a kid which is why I chose an important teacher, Mr. Z’s house as the backdrop for most of my photos.  I’ve spent time there ever since I was little.”

Kid at Heart

Alyvia smiles, “I have always been a child at heart which is why I chose to incorporate the playground for my senior portraits.”

Mirror Mirror

Alyvia says, “Incorperating a mirror was a fun part of my session.  It reminded me of how I would give myself positive affirmations in the mirror or write affirmations on my mirror to remind myself who I am.”

Keep scrolling to see a peek at the creative photos we were able to take with the mirror. 🙂

Ready for Take-Off!

Alyvia shares, “In the next chapter of my life I will be going to Shippensburg University to major in education for PreK-4 teaching.”

I can’t wait to see Alyvia pursue her dreams of becoming a teacher! She will be so amazing. 🙂
