I have to admit . . I got pretty excited when I heard that Andrew was an inspiring Chef, Musician and loved to fish at his favorite lake!! Ideas immediately started flowing about the photos that we would do! So, to say it was a change for me, to get out of my beautiful young ladies in their huge dresses and ballet shoes, to think of shooting a nice looking young man in the kitchen, behind the piano and at the lake! I loved thinking outside of the box. Andrew was up for any of my crazy ideas and here are just a few of my favorites from the day! Best of luck to you Andrew as you start this next, and exciting chapter of your life.
I think one of my favorite parts of this profession is making life long friends . . when I photographed Jillian during her senior year, several years ago, I fell in love with this family! Then, getting to reconnect with them again on Shane’s Senior shoot was pure joy. They were SO helpful and fun, I wish they could go along with me on every photo shoot! Lol This was the first time meeting Shane, and I have to say, we had fun on his shoot! We went 4 wheeling (not really) in his big truck, ran with the dog and threw the ball around a bit .. all to capture his very talented self. I usually try and bring out the rugged side of Senior guys when I photograph them, but it happens to be the laughing, playful side that we all loved the most. . .Whenever I’d tell him to look off in the distance, he and his dad would laugh at each other and give me the great images pictured here. I just love the connection they had together! Good luck Shane . . I know you have an amazing future ahead!!
See . . I actually do photograph guys! I've been posting so many Wedding and girl photos that people began to wonder if I actually photograph young men. I photographed Jared last year when his brother Austin was a senior and Kim, his mom wanted some photos of the two of them. Well, what a difference a year makes! What a fun shoot it was, sneaking his car onto the school's track one last time and climbing through weeds to get to the right spot etc . . Jared was such a sweet guy as his Mom helped him with his wind blown hair. I'm excited to see what lies ahead for you Jared. Best of luck to you as you enter this next chapter in your life!
