Xori’s mother, Lawanda contacted me recently about doing a photoshoot for her daughter to commemorate Xori’s Homecoming dance. In many ways, Homecoming is much like prom only in the fall. While not quite as formal, students still dress in semi-formal wear for Homecoming in order to celebrate coming back to school. Students often ask a classmate to attend with them or go with a group of friends. I was delighted to be able to do her Homecoming Photography in Las Vegas.
Our Las Vegas Homecoming Photography session took place at Willows Park, located at 2775 Desert Marigold Lane. The winding sidewalks, interesting stairways, and lovely greenery made a nice and nondescript backdrop for this photography session. In a few of the photos, it seemed as though the trees were framing up the scene for me. The park was not overly busy and the couple was able to relax and have fun.
About the Shoot: Homecoming Photography in Las Vegas
I happened to make it to our location at Willow Park before Xori. When I saw her as she arrived I was stunned by her beauty. She was breathtaking in a simple black dress and a sleek hairstyle. She looked as though she should be walking the red carpet. Her date for the evening joined her shortly after and his joy at being there was apparent. His grey jacket with a black shirt and tie were the perfect complement to Xori’s outfit. Both were all smiles and very comfortable with each other. I was very glad to be able to photograph them, as they were so photogenic and easy to work with.
While Homecoming Photography in Las Vegas isn’t extremely popular yet, I think this couple is an outstanding example of how fun and beautiful these types of photos can be. Schools often offer a standard photo at the dance, but nothing quite stands up to a lovely photo session done at a location of the couples choosing. This allows for their personality to shine as their comfort level increases. Xori and her date loved their Homecoming photos and, in the end, that is what truly matters the most. Thank you, Lawanda for contacting me to do your daughter’s photos. It was my pleasure.
