the senior sessions

I've been trying to catch up on a bunch of work from over the summer. Seniors are definitely up there with my favorite subjects to shoot. It's such a poignant time in a young persons life, and to be able to capture that is always special. I remember this day quite well. We were on the brink of November and it was starting to get especially chilly. After tossing some ideas back and forth, Justin, his mom and I decided that we would hit up Millport Conservancy. If you're not familiar, this amazing little piece of heaven sits on a nature preserve on the outskirts of Leola. I've driven by dozens of times but had never stopped to shoot.

Justin was seriously such a trooper. I have to laugh a little whenever I get asked to shoot senior portraits for guys. Because, you know they are never the ones behind the idea. Justin's mom, is a friend of mine and is truly one of the sweetest souls. I can't tell you how amazing it is to be able to work with people who just get you and your work. It really makes the whole experience that more worthwhile.

I mean look at this fella, model in the making.
