Over the years, Senior photography has been such a passion for me. This year definitely is shaping up to be super fun and yes emotional. I’m photographing beautiful, talented, intelligent kids who I have watched grow and blossom over time. I’ve known some of these kids since before elementary school, so here we are Senior portraits. We blinked and they grew up.
Hope has grown into a beautiful young woman and is a ray of sunshine. When I sat down to brain storm locations that fit her energetic, warm personality I knew that I wanted to create something beautiful to hang on her mother Misty’s wall, a photograph so beautiful that it would bring tears to her eyes.
Hope chose to have her portraits taken at her Grandparents house, up by Woods landing, and in downtown Laramie. I know it had to have been slightly awkward to have me looking through the camera lens and posing her, but she was awesome! As the session progressed, she became more and more comfortable. At one point she flashed me her real smile and I was hooked. No wonder every time I see her happiness and fun happen.
My clients are not just a number in a long line. They are individuals with unique personalities, hopes, dreams and talents. I want to draw that out of them so they see themselves reflected in each photograph. This is such an amazing time for all my seniors. They are between the end and the beginning. This moment in time will quickly come and go. No matter how much we may want to slow it down, this chapter will end. But, we can remember.
So, here’s to memories and making them last forever…
