I'm really enjoying some senior portraits. And I really loved working with this amazing senior. I've actually known him since he was something like 11 years old, and he's impressed me ever since I met him. He's done so well academically, athletically, and has been really involved with Operation Smile (he went to Thailand earlier this year - I think it was this year - and has more travel plans with them for later).
He was not extra happy to do butterfly, it's not his stroke. But it's best for photography :) and he humored me.
Backstroke is his fave but it's harder for me to work with. But by chasing him back and forth by the pool I got some I really like.
He also runs cross-country so we went to the bosque where he runs trails. Now I kind of want to run trails too, except in past years I used to turn my ankle when I ran off the asphalt.
We had to think a little about how to incorporate Operation Smile into senior portraits. I love how this worked.
And... the sunset snuck up on me... but I'd intended to use flash anyway so I think it worked. The clouds were dramatic and I love the twilight colors.
