I’ve known Kevin since he was in elementary school and his mom contacted me recently to schedule his senior session. (Yep, that’s how it usually works for senior guys – Mom is nearly ALWAYS the one who initiates these sessions!) I hadn’t seen Kevin in some time, as he goes to a different school than my kids. I wondered if I would recognize him. No doubt about it – he looks exactly like a grown up version of the 6th grader I knew. The biggest change I noticed, besides his height, was that his voice is now crazy deep!
Kevin loves dirt bike racing, so he brought his bike along as a prop, hoping for a casual and fun session. Although, the bike wouldn’t start (I learned later that there were some loose wires on the battery), we got some awesome shots of him on it!
We shot these images just outside of Emerald Ridge High School. They chose this location because, “We chose his high school because the surrounding property was a good backdrop for photos with his bike and the campus shots are familiar and sentimental.”
I asked Jeanne (mom) and Kevin what their favorite part of the session was. They told me, “It was easy and we laughed a lot!”
Summer is a great time for senior sessions, for those of you who just graduated! Schedule your senior session before the summer is over.
