It is well-known that Downtown Franklin is a fantastic place to have your Senior Pictures created. Seriously. What is NOT to love!!? The gorgeous, historic streets, the brick and the mature trees are just part of Franklin’s goodness!
JB Brookman Photography is about to launch our exclusive, invitation-only Class of 2016 High School Senior Models program. Our friend Kora is actually a Class of 2017 Senior– so, we decided that we would do a little warm up session with her! She was such an incredible person to work with! She was super joyful and ultra excited to have her photos taken.
This was right at the end of the Fall leaves season and I wanted to take advantage of them. I had been at a festival, the day before and scouted out a certain yard that was packed with bright yellow leaves! There was a certain alley that I had been wanting to shoot in, that was only about a block and a half away.
When we showed up for the actual session I got a bit stressed out, because someone had sprayed graffiti across the usually beautifully painted wall. But, being a photographic artist, I knew that I could take care of it in post production. Yes, it would take a little bit more work- but, I really wanted to create in this spot!
So, we ended up with 4 different clothing changes and two different main locations. We included a grunge look, hats and scarves and a sweater with boots look. All of them seemed to work, magically.
When we hit the final location, there was a gorgeous stream of light peeking through the trees! Since we were waiting on a clothing change, I was chomping at the bit to get the shot. I didn’t want the sun to set! But, Kora showed up just in time to have a solid 10 minutes of perfect sunlight.
Downtown Franklin, I am in love with you and your ambiance!

“My name is JB Brookman. I’m a rock star concert photographer who grew up shooting the biggest stars in the world. The stages and venues of Hollywood and LA used to be my home, but now I have made a home in the suburbs of Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee. Shooting Taylor Swift, U2, Elton John and Ed Sheeran is great, but my true passion is creating highly stylized, authentic and modern portraits of High School Seniors, making them feel like they are at the center of the stage.”
