james & mae: engaged


It’s so fun when clients have creative ideas for their shoots! James and Mae consider themselves “old souls” and had always related to the opening sequence from the movie “Up.” They decided they’d like to incorporate the movie as a theme in their engagement shoot, and the results were just so fun! Love these two, and I cannot wait to see them at their wedding this summer!

Class of 2017 Senior Model: Jordyn


BSP Class of 2017 Senior Model: Jordyn

Mariner High School

Describes her personality as: very organized and detail-oriented. Her passions include dance, getting to know new people, shopping, photography & blogging.

Describes her style as: She loves a mixture of urban/vintage look and a more minimal look. She loves to mix and match textures to add interest.

Loves high school because: she has the opportunity to learn and grow and make mistakes in a place where everyone else can do the same.

Looking forward to life after high school because: she’s interested in so many different things and she can’t wait to start putting herself out there to make the most of life.

Fun fact: Jordyn loves poetry. She says, “I feel that words hold a certain importance in our lives, and i love feeling every bit of emotion that life offers me. Surviving and existing is one thing, but living is another.” I couldn’t agree more.

Wishes for her senior portraits: to be creative and do something a little different.

Favorite thing about her shoot: “My favorite thing about the shoot was how laid back everything was and just the vibe of the whole day. I felt like I could be myself with Brooks and just have a great conversation. It was nice to have a day in a great city, with the best photographer, and just to remember that all the years of growing up has led me to this moment.”

Tips for other seniors: “Some tips I’d point out for your shoot would be to just be yourself- everyone has something unique and different that we have about ourselves, so don’t be hesitant to be different in your pictures as well. Also, just coming into the shoot, be creative and open minded- you’re going to remember this moment going into the next stage of your life!”

Outfit details: “Most of the outfits I came up with came from vintage shops, H&M, and Urban Outfitters. I love a grunge/indie/neutral colored- look, and I feel that it’s important to demonstrate who you are, what you like, and what compliments you as a person in pictures. A picture’s worth a thousand words, so make them all count!! ”

Describes her style as: all over the place! She loves to experiment and try different things with clothing, but if she had to narrow it down to one signature look she would say polished and preppy.

Loves high school because: dance team! Emily says her team is the most supportive and loving group of girls anyone could ask for and they make dancing so fun! She also loves learning from different teachers and finding herself as a student.

Looking forward to life after high school because: she’s wants to travel and live in different parts of the world.

Fun fact: She started a fashion club at her school and she’s really happy with it’s success!

Favorite thing about her shoot: “The shoot was so fun and easy. Brooks finds the best spots and poses and makes you feel like a real model!”

Tips for other seniors: “Wear something that is cute and represents your style, but is also functional! You don’t want to have to fix parts of your outfit in between each shot.”

Outfit details: “The majority of my clothing from the shoot could be found at Nordstrom. I love that I can find something more casual or dressy all in one store, and they can help you find the right pieces to complete your outfit.”

class of 2017 senior model: kendall


I’m telling you guys, my model team this year, they are the best! I have shot with almost half of them at this point and I am just loving every single one of them. Here are some details about Kendall, and her thoughts on her senior portrait experience!

BSP Class of 2017 Senior Model: Kendall

Describes her personality as: very open and bubbly. She loves people and helping people.

Describes her style as: A mix of dressy and casual. Her favorite places to shop are BP & TopShop.

Loves high school because: football games, people, learning & fun!

Looking forward to life after high school because: she’s hoping to attend WSU and study something involving fashion.

Fun fact: She loves soccer & has played since she was 5 years old.

Wishes for her senior portraits: to incorporate a city vibe.

Favorite thing about her shoot: “My favorite thing was being able to take pictures in different areas around Snohomish and see different parts of Snohomish I have never seen before. Brooks really showed me areas I have never seen.”

Tips for other seniors: “Don’t worry to much about posing and stuff. Brooks helps you so much and it really makes you feel better throughout the whole shoot.”

Outfit details: “I chose 3 different outfits. An everyday outfit, a more casual one, and then a dressy one. The purple shirt and ripped jeans with the black boots were all from Nordstrom (free people, blancnyc, bp). The second outfit was the green jacket with black jeans and wedges and that was mainly just more of a causal look (H&M, Nordstrom). The last outfit was my dress and sandals and that outfit was just very fun to be in (Francesca’s, Steve Madden).”
