One thing I really love about senior portraits is meeting great seniors in interesting and new places. This senior attends East Mountain High School so I drove to their side of the mountains to take her senior portraits. I have been to the "other side" of the mountains before to do senior portraits, but usually that's when we're looking for snow and just not getting it in town. I've never gone past the turnoff to Sandia Peak, so this was new to me.
This gorgeous girl is a soccer player, which is my family's favorite sport, so I especially enjoyed working with her. She's been playing since she was 6 (or was it 7?) years old so it's been a big part of her life. (I know how that goes.) I love her game face.
And her gorgeous smile too!
I was really glad that we could use her school field for pictures.
To me, one of the best things about senior portraits is being able to incorporate both their interests, and hopefully locations that are meaningful to them as well.
It's always a little nerve-wracking to juggle for a camera - she did a great job.
Of course there is more to life than soccer!
I really needed a tall ladder, or to climb up to the top of the bleachers, to see the logo on the gym floor. But I still think it's fun like this. (And they didn't even want a chair on the gym floor, let alone a ladder...)
If you are a high school senior, or a parent of a high school senior, I'd love to chat with you about senior portraits! We can talk about how to incorporate your interests into your session, so it can really be unique. Give me a call or email for more information!
