Luke was our first senior in to kick off the senior portrait season! I met Luke last year when his family hired me for an extended family session and was pleased when they decided to return for Luke's senior session. Building relationships through my business has opened the doors to many meaningful connections in the community and the loyalty of returning clients always means a lot to me.
We started at the studio for a few traditional indoor shots; these always make for classic keepsakes and wonderful gifts for grandparents.
We typically spend minimal time the studio with just one or two outfits being outdoor photographs are more often the favored. In this case, Luke quickly changed his top for a different look and then we proceeded to some nifty outdoor locations he had in mind.
Dressing in layers helps add dimension to an outfit and another benefit is that removal of a layer offers a completely different look with little effort.
Again, the quick swap of a shirt and adding the leather jacket gave us a completely different look.
Luke's family owns and operates a local tree farm and it was important to him to capture that family history in some of his portraits.
Lastly, we stopped at the high school gym to show off his wrestling and weightlifting skills.
As you can see, Luke is an avid wrestler!
Given that all the locations Luke requested were in close proximity and he had many quick and easy outfit changes his session went smoothly (with the exception of being eaten alive by mosquitoes); we were able to capture many of the things that were important to him. Congrats to Luke on his final year of high school!
