This life is one crazy big roller coaster with twists and turns. I’ve learned it offers many moments of great excitement, joy and bittersweet sadness all rolled up into one. Not to mention it goes way too fast!
As a mom of a sophomore as well as twins that are quickly approaching high school, capturing this period before the kids fly the coup is more than just a job to me, it’s personal. I know how important this moment is in not only their lives, but as parents, ours as well. Not only do I want to capture the joy of this moment, but I’m also on a mission to capture their spirit, interests, aspirations and all that speaks to the person you have watched grow.
My love for senior photography goes beyond the ability to relate to the parents impending this milestone. As an artist these sessions peak creative inspiration because no session is the same. They don’t necessarily revolve around one perfectly posed shot. It is more about creating a series of photos that tell a story. There is NO BOX and WITHOUT BOUNDARIES the CREATIVE POSSIBILITIES are endless. I can spend time focussing on my favorite parts of photography: Light, Perspective, and telling The Story and let the rest of the elements just fall into place.
So go right ahead and book a session. We’ll spend a spontaneous afternoon chasing light and checking out plenty of fun and unique perspectives. I can promise two things: I will come home a bit dirty after trudging through whatever I need to in order to get “the shot”, and you will walk away with images that unambiguously capture the story. After the ceremony is complete and the tassel is transferred from right to left, these photographs will be a steadfast reminder; a culmination of this amazing journey as you prepare to start the next big adventure.
There’s no way to freeze time, but as the image above reminds me, photos have a way of preserving wonderful memories.
