Back to our regularly scheduled diet of Senior Photos!! I always feel so fortunate when I get to do senior photos. They are some of my favorite sessions!
This one was even better than most in that I was able to reconnect with one of my childhood friends. Lisa and I (I know…one year in school there were 5 Lisas…thanks mom and dad for the generic name, although they almost named me Jennifer and I think that one was even more popular at the time) were connected at the hip. There were many sleepovers and playdates between us. In highschool and beyond, we grew apart a bit. But now, our boys go to the same school!!! Corey is a few years older than Makai, but it is still fun to be able to reconnect with old friends.
This kid is a stud! I mean, just look at his stylish jacket. Isn’t it amazing?
At the beginning of the summer, the mosquitoes were legitimately out for blood. I even brought bug spray, but they were vicious. As shown in this sequence of photos.
But it made for a good laugh!!
Lisa later told me that she counted over 50 mosquito bites. I am sorry Lisa!!! But it was worth it, don’t you think?
I love getting together with my senior clients after the session to show them their pictures. The mom usually get all misty-eyed and sentimental. No judgement here, my son just turned 16 and I am already getting teary about certain things.
Corey was a joy to work with. He is really into photography and it was fun to be able to “talk shop” with him. The only hard part was getting him to put down his camera and stop taking pictures. 😉
I have seen some of his photographs and they are really cool. He loves to do abstract and then pull it into Photoshop and manipulate it to look really interesting and unique. He has a real talent for sure. He plans to go to DU next year to study Photography and Business (good plan).
Corey is also really into music, so we had to showcase the headphones that rarely leave his ears (according to mom).
Lisa, thanks for allowing me to do pictures for you. It was so good to catch up and we need to do coffee again sometime soon!! Good luck in your senior year and beyond Corey! And keep up the good work with your photography passion.
