Most of the time when I book senior clients, it’s usually the parents that reach out to me and begin the booking process, which is great and I always enjoy having a close rapport with them throughout the entire experience. I always bring the senior into the loop, too, and together we all continue planning the details of the session up to the date. In this case, I was incredibly flattered when it was Grant, high school senior, that found my website and connected with my photos on his own. He told mom that he wanted me to take his senior portraits and got the ball rolling on our plans. From the get-go I was impressed with how mature and organized he is, as well as completely at ease and relaxed during all of our interactions. That made for a seamless session and I loved how involved he was in everything! We picked a beautiful location in Roseville that I knew had specific areas with characteristics that were important for Grant to have in his photos. It was also important for older sis to be there and share some siblings shots with him. I could tell right off the bat that they shared a really close bond and watching them laugh and joke with each other during the entire time was pretty special–I was even happier when I caught those moments for them to keep and I could just see mom beaming, rightfully proud and two beautiful, smart, and loving children…now adults.
Choosing some of my favorite images from this session was so difficult as there were so many! Grant, congratulations on your high school graduation and I wish you the best of luck on your future endeavors into college and beyond. I already know you’ve got success in your future, as well as support and love from some pretty awesome family members! Thank you again for allowing me to capture this pivotal moment in your journey!
