Puyallup Senior Portraits {Firstlight Photography}

My parents paid loads for my senior portrait – I say portrait because I only recall seeing one image.  Every moment of my studio session was like torture.  The backdrop scene was a forest with a fake fence prop.  I really didn’t know what was happening.  The photographer was, well, sort of uninterested in his job and I just wanted to escape the cheese factor asap.  Sorry Dad and Mom.

At Firstlight Photography we want our seniors to have FUN.  You have a say – lots of it – in your shoot.  It is simple.  If you feel in control and are having fun it will show in your photos.  Senior portraits are meant to capture a very special moment in time.  We will talk to you about your interests, where you like to hang out, how you spend your time when not in school, if you play sports or are in a band etc.  We like to get to know you so we can create a lifestyle session that helps show who you are – not who your photographer wants you to be (ie that sad farm girl with the fake fence).

We will help prepare you for outfits to bring and will refer you to hair and make-up artists we recommend if you so desire.  We have a whole repertoire of locations we shoot.  We find many new ones based on our seniors’ input.  If you are going for a downtown, urban grunge, graffiti wall, waterfront, rustic barn, decomposing structures, nature vibe or even your high school – we can work it into your shoot.

We also offer a year in the life packages for the senior.  We basically stalk you on three to five shoots and capture you in your natural habitat.  These sessions are lots of fun.  By the end, our seniors are ready to assist any photographer – they really learn the ropes and get an amazing collection of photos.

Your shoot will be fun and you will get to provide input into the session.  We don’t want you to have those sad farm girl pictures too.

Our prices are very affordable and we will create custom packages for you.

About Firstlight Photography

Kier is from Orange County and Mitzi is from just outside Chicago. We both moved to Seattle in June of 1995- but it took until 2006 for us to actually meet. We saw the same concerts and we both had the same Capitol Hill sushi haunt but it took over 10 years for our paths to finally cross. When they did we had no idea that our careers would collide into a fabulous partnership. We share a common love of music and photography. Kier caught the photo bug years ago and Mitzi always had a love of art and a mind for business. When we aren’t out on a photo shoot you can find us roller skating with our kids, hosting Martha Stewart eat your heart out dinners (Kier is the chef & Mitzi is the baker), watching movies -we share a love of “Strange Brew” (which should be slightly embarrassing, but we own it), or doing DIY projects with our insanely crafty kiddos. We are located between Seattle and Tacoma any frequently travel throughout Washington, Oregon and California. You can book us for your destination wedding or event and we will give you a reasonable travel quote (our passports are ready). Life is good and we work hard to convey this in our work. There is nothing more rewarding that receiving a note from a client’s mother thanking us for doing a great job on her daughter’s wedding photos. Call us and we will do a phone consultation or meet over coffee to talk about your photography needs, answer questions and, if we are a good fit, we can devise a variety of package options.
