Kendall – Class of 2018

Senior Session  |   Indianapolis, IN  |  August 2017

It’s beyond time we got caught up on blog posts from a year of incredible sessions and weddings! So to get the ball rolling, naturally, we turn to family. ❤ It’s impossible to fathom that Kendall (Simone’s baby cousin — check out the end of this post for a throwback photo!) is about to graduate and move on to college and everything beyond! We had a lovely summer day for our session at Cardinal Ritter & Marian University, and Kendall is a natural in front of the camera.  Sharing this session now, just makes us even more excited to get back to the Midwest this summer. Congratulations Kendall — we can’t wait to see what you accomplish next. 🙂

Caleb – Class of 2017

Senior Session  |   Alfond Inn – Winter Park, FL  |  May 2017

It’s hard to believe that the school year is already over and another group of seniors will soon be off to college and jobs and life beyond high school!  We’re just glad we got to meet a few of them, like Caleb, before they branch out into new awesome adventures.

Senior Session  |  Class of 2017  |  Mount Pleasant, MI  |  June 2016

Part of this gorgeous summer was even more stunning thanks to this beauty!  Jacquelin was incredibly easy to work with and tolerated all of my crazy suggestions — “give yourself a hug, lie down on this log, look thoughtfully off into the distance” — so graciously.  I’m excited to watch where this lady goes next, and I can only hope I’ll be able to get her back in front of my camera again soon. Congratulations and here’s to a fantastic senior year!

Senior portraits aren’t always the highlight of any young man’s summer plans, but Anthony was a good sport, and we even had some fun during his warm summer session.  Cathedral High School is one of the most picturesque campuses in Indianapolis especially in August when the trees are full and green.  Despite the mosquitos and warm temperature, we managed to get some great shots! Congrats on what I’m sure will be a fantastic senior year Anthony.

One of the best parts of being a photographer is the chance to see the same clients from year to year.  And each year it’s a little surreal to see “kids” like John suddenly all grown up.  Downtown Indianapolis is one of my favorite places to shoot, but the hustle and bustle of the urban environment is especially great for a stoic session like John’s.  Here’s to a great senior year!

Cathedral High School is one of my favorite places for senior portrait sessions in Indianapolis, partially due to nostalgia (it’s my alma mater and the site of many fond memories) and partially because it’s just so beautiful in any season.  When we met from the first part of Brantley’s senior session it was a lovely summer day with the trees and flowers in full bloom. Since Brantley has been a committed baseball player for four years at Cathedral, we also took some time to get some shots out at the field. Whether or not he continues playing ball, Brantley is going to find success in his next chapters – of that I feel certain.

I think all photographers love seeing their clients come back for session after session especially when there are young people in the family. I first started photographing Brian’s family a number of years ago and since then it’s been incredible to see each of the four kids grow and change for session to session. I can hardly believe Brian is a senior this year! He’s grown into (though I suspect maybe he’s always been) an exceptionally poised and polite young man. He’s also incredibly patient since both mom and I were coaxing and directing him throughout his entire shoot! Congrats and here’s to a great senior year Brian!
