I enjoy it when guys come in and actually talk about what they want to do for senior portraits.Even though he is kinda quiet, Nolan had some definite ideas and lots of game! ( and he gets bonus points for a) laughing at my lame joke and b) there was fire involved!) Yeah, he gets to see those first…..watch facebook in about a week to see some way cool baseball sportraits!
Hayden is a Fisher High School Senior. He has a quick smile and an intense stare. He’s a bit of the class clown with a passion for baseball and fishing. He promised his mom that he would give full co-operation for an hour, and then had enough fun that he gave us TWO Hours! Here is a quick peek at what we did!
Senior boys with trucks, cowboy hats and flaming bats…what more could a photographer want? I had a great time photographing Brendan’s senior portraits this week. We totally lucked out with nice weather, not warm enough to go without a coat, but at least we weren’t freezing to death, it is February after all! I wish him luck at SIU where he will be majoring in Civil Engineering!
This 2012 senior gets bonus points for effort. Not only was his senior portrait sitting on a hot July day, but he had just come from football practice. Parker doesn’t let any grass grow under his feet participating in multiple sports both during the school year AND during the summer. He wanted to find a way, in a single shot, to convey his passion for football, basketball and baseball. I think we managed it well. He was also very much about nature and outdoors, so we utilized an old bridge with lots of wonderful mature shade trees, and also the new nature preserve just south of Fisher. The meadows there were amazing,( but the mosquitos were vicious). He’s got a great smile (even if his mom had to ham it up to get him to laugh!) and lots of enthusiasm!
Matt chose to stay closer to home for his senior portrait shoot. We found some awesome places to shoot including a boat and a bridge that was new to me. He was awesome to work with and we got some really great photos!
Trey is a great kid to photograph. He tolerated my wild whims and happy dances. He did make me feel very short! We did a whirlwind tour of downtown Champaign, and then to the sports fields where he was probably happiest. He is also my first “official” Sport Portrait, which I think turned out amazing.
