Let’s get Real
Authentic, real, senior pictures – as in…can we get real? No, I mean, really real. As in, not vanilla. NOT trying to be like everyone else. OR, not trying to be anyone but yourself. In a world saturated with perfectly curated lives, finding authenticity – as in, genuine and unique has become, mmmmmm, a little challenging.
Being deeply rooted in capturing the true essence of individuals, bringing out their personality and uniqueness is what I do. Well, okay, Paige (you may be thinking) this is at the heart of what you’ve been doing with senior portraits for the past 11 years. What’s different?
It started on I-95, with lots of driving time to think. We had spent a weekend at the The Graduate Hotel in Providence, RI. Graduate Hotels are known for personalizing each of their hotels based on the college town they inhabit. They’re one of my favorite hotels BECAUSE of their personalization and uniqueness.
Creating an Aesthetic that feels right
I realized, Paige P. Photography is so similar to the Graduate Hotel aesthetic. Creating an environment where teens feel comfortable to express themselves authentically is what I do. A senior photoshoot is an experience that’s customized to resonate with, and highlight your personality, mirroring the way Graduate Hotels curate their spaces to reflect the spirit of the community.
Personalization Beyond the Surface
Once you book with me that is NOT the last time you’ll be hearing from me until your senior portraits. I want to understand you on a deeper level – interests, passions, and quirks. This personally customized approach ensures that every image is a true reflection of you, as an individual, as a teen. I want to know that your experience is anything but generic and offers a tailored, meaningful experience.
Embracing Quirkiness and Uniqueness
You know what I love about the Graduate Hotels? It’s their embrace of quirkiness and uniqueness. Each hotel celebrates the idiosyncrasies that make it distinct. I LOVVVEEE celebrating your quirks and uniqueness. That’s what makes you, you! All the little imperfections that are absolutely PERFECT! And we’re going to capture them (pinky promise).
Creating Lasting Memories
Beyond capturing senior photos that you feel, a photoshoot becomes a lasting memory. The images captured go beyond mere photographs; they become cherished mementos of a moment frozen in time, authentically showing a piece of your journey before leaving your teen years behind. The goal is to evoke the same sense of nostalgia and connection that one might feel when reminiscing about a stay at a Graduate Hotel.
Can we please choose authenticity?
In a world inundated with mass-produced content and generic experiences, can we please value authenticity? Photos are a dime a dozen but ones with authenticity are rare. I’ll always choose celebrating the true essence of teens and timeless memories over a “pretty picture”. My intent is for you to feel your images.
And… THAT is what I was thinking as we drove home after our weekend at a hotel that shares the same values as Paige P. Photography.
