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!

Let's face it, we've all gotten that email that asks us if we offer holiday/off-season/Sunday/dog's birthday discounts. As a girl who loves shopping clearance racks, I get it, I love me a good sale... but always being asked to discount your prices can be disheartening and devaluing as a creative. We already struggle with putting a price on our art, how the heck are we going to make any money if we don't charge profitable prices.

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!
