On May 26, 2000 I graduated High School!! I don’t know how it could be that I have been out of HS for 16 years!!! Although some days I do feel 34 or older for that matter lol, it just doesn’t seem like I should be in my mid thirties!
In honor of Graduation week I thought I would feature my 2 AGP 2016 Seniors. I love to shoot seniors but don’t promote it as much as I probably should because I tend to stay busy with Newborn & Family Photography.
My 1st Senior, Ms Bethany, is a New Graduate of Cross Lanes Christian School. Her mom reached out to me via Facebook and booked Bethanys “Travel WV Senior Session.” Bethany wanted to have her photos done at Hawks Nest State Parkin the fall! I love that area so I jumped at the chance to travel and meet her! If you have never been, the New River Gorge area is just so breath taking and to me what West Virginia looks like when I picture it in my mind. I asked my Shutter Sister Tabitha to come along and assist because she used to he a Zip Line guide in the Gorge and knew she would take us to all of the best hidden places to get some of the best shots! Bethany was a star softball player on her schools team and since they were getting new uniforms this year we did a quick mini session in the spring to capture those memories too!
My 2nd Senior was Nate! I have known Nate and his family for almost 7 years. When we moved to the area we purchased his childhood home which was situated next to his grandparents home. My children grew close to them, thinking of them as 2nd grandparents. It was hard to believe when his mom contacted me about his session that he was old enough to be graduating. Nate’s session was broken up into 2 separate dates as well so we could shoot in multiple locations to keep his photos from looking similar to other classmates. We started at his Elementary School and then a week later went and shot at the State Capitol, Downtown Charleston and the Wine Cellar Park. I was pleased with how they all turned out and he designed a great announcement with the photos.
I am so happy for Bethany and Nate and I know they will do wonderful things in life! It was a pleasure to capture these memories for them!
If you know a High School Senior looking for a photographer please send them my way! I love referrals!
