These senior portraits were extra special for two reasons. One, Luke is my cousin and two; Luke is the last grandchild in our family to graduate high school. After dodging some rain drops and pushing the session back just a bit we were able to get a perfect day to shoot Luke’s senior pictures. I love shooting senior pictures because I get to incorporate different hobbies, sports, and achievements that have helped shape these seniors into young adults. I also find, when photographing a senior with the items they love and spend their time doing their true personality comes out and they tend to lighten up a bit for that particular part of the session. Luke recently had his Eagle Scout board of review and is now an Eagle Scout. He completed a 12 day trek at the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.
I love finding creative ways to incorporate a senior’s achievements into their session. Here are some of my favorites and don’t forget to check out all of Luke’s proofs to see his Eagle Scout pictures.
