"Your shots made me cry. You captured the emotion of the game. The shot on the bottom right tells me more as mom of Keegans feelings and I never could have captured it on my own. What a blessing to have met you two games before the season ends. The one with the Keegan running out with the team "Just fabulous". Thanks again"....Kathy Hauglie, Parent of Ashley High School Senior. Photos pictured below.
I LOVE senior portraits...and yes, football game coverage is part of senior portrait coverage if desired! Senior year is such a huge milestone...it marks the end of one phase of life and the start of another. It is typically a time when a young person is making the shift from living at home to living away, making decisions that will very quickly be effecting their adult life yet they are not quite there yet. It is an exciting time, a scary time and a reflective time. It can be sad in some moments and thrilling in the next.
I can't help but feel a connection with every senior and their family I work with. I ask so many questions before a session and want to know all I can to capture this time and their life at home with their family as best as I can. This will most likely be the last time planned photos are taken of the individual....there are no more photo sessions for each birthday or new outfit as there were when they were younger. This is a time I like to ask families to reflect back on favorite memories, pull out well loved blankets or stuffed animals, first shoes, etc for me to incorporate creatively into the session. I will of course get great posed images of their child but it is images like the ones below and the note this mom left me that make me so thankful for the chance to do what I do...helping to tell peoples story.
