Design Aglow's Senior Week 2015: Meet Jennifer Corbett of As Ever Photography

Senior week has come to a close and we're so grateful to have been able to feature some of the most inspirational senior photographers in our industry. Don't forget to get your entries in for our Image Contest for a chance to win $300, $250 or $150 and we'll announce our winners tomorrow!

To conclude, we are pleased to introduce Jennifer Corbett of As Always Photography. Jenny is known for her gorgeous senior images and was kind enough to take us behind the scenes on one of her recent shoots into the stunning scenery below the Wasatch Mountains. Enjoy!~

Photographing a high school senior is pretty much the most fun a photographer can have! When you’re spending the day with a bright young person with everything ahead of them, that optimism, excitement, and energy are just bound to rub off on you! Graduating from high school is such an incredible time — I absolutely love to capture seniors at that moment when they’re just about to go out and really become the person they’re meant to be.

For this session, we did a few behind the scenes shots of my model, Audrey, picking out her wardrobe and getting ready for the shoot. I always want my seniors to be comfortable in their wardrobe and feel their absolute best, so we talk a lot beforehand about what look we’re trying to achieve and what will look best in the images. I encourage clients to text me pictures of what’s in their closet so I can help them with the decision process. 

Audrey has tons of cute clothes, so we just picked up a couple accessories at H&M on our way to the makeup studio.

Katie with KL Artistry does an incredible job on photo-ready makeup; her work is just flawless!

Once she finished Audrey’s fishtail braid and gave us a little “to-go” lip color for post-snack touch ups, we were on our way!

We made a quick stop in to Dear Lizzie, a favorite bistro/shop here in Utah, for a “Dizzy Lizzie” soda and a cupcake — Sustenance is important to keep your energy up throughout the shoot! ;)

I tend to shoot senior portraits that veer away from the more traditional posed images and I really try to make each session personally relevant for each client.

Audrey is an artist herself and her paintings have a strong focus on nature and floral themes, so we wanted to incorporate lots of Utah’s amazing wildflowers and stunning natural landscapes in her images.

She is definitely a free spirit with a truly bubbly, sunny personality and I adore capturing her carefree spirit.


Jenny of As Ever Photography has been making pictures since she was old enough to hold a camera. Growing up, she spent endless hours in her home darkroom and has carried this love for creating images throughout her life. After practicing as a speech/language pathologist for many years, including several years spent working with children with Autism in Ireland, she is now pursuing her lifelong passion for capturing beauty through her lens as a career. She endeavors to create a dreamy, vintage-inspired aesthetic and to document authentic, honest emotions. She loves to photograph seniors, couples, and weddings. She is a military spouse currently based in Utah, but has a serious case of wanderlust and welcomes ALL travel!

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
