If I wasn’t capturing wedding days, I’d be photographing these gems. Maybe it’s emotion left over from being a youth pastor only a few years ago, but high school seniors have such a sweet spot in my heart.
Remember what it was like? The whole world is at your fingertips. You feel limitless, full of potential. Ready for anything. At the exact same time, there’s a crushing pressure to do well. To succeed. And you have a choice: fold and bend and break or…be strong. Fight through it. Achieve. Sometimes, it feels like you’re doing both.
But that’s the beauty of growing up! Seniors are in such a pivotal break in the road with so many decisions and paths to choose from, and it’s where they begin to find out who they really are. I love meeting new seniors for these sessions! And honestly, I feel a little bad because I’m that person who asks them a million questions. But it’s because I want to get to know them! I’m so excited to see what they do in life, but I’m more excited to hear about their hopes and dreams. Even more, I’m excited to encourage them!
Claire is one of those outstanding seniors. From the moment I met her, she carried a brilliance and a passion for life. Even though our session was only 30 minutes, we had tons of fun creating these images that capture the spirit of her senior self! Take a look for yourself – I bet you can’t get through them without smiling!
