Last year, when I photographed beautiful McKenna, I wrote about my roots as the MOMS club photographer years ago. It’s crazy to me that I’m now starting to photograph senior portrait sessions for these kids who I was just at playdates with like last week. Ashton’s mom Alisha was also one of those moms I got to know back then, and I was so happy to be asked to shoot Ashton’s senior portrait session at his high school, Grace Christian Academy. As a senior photographer, it is especially rewarding to photograph kids who I’ve known all these years.
I had never been to Grace Christian Academy before, and was so very pleased with how pretty it was and perfect for Ashton’s senior photos. I love being able to capture pieces of his high school experience in the background of these photos. Where else would you want to photograph a football player but on the football field? And the school has a beautiful little pond and pretty wooded area. With the location, the light and the weather, it was the perfect location for senior photos.
Ashton lost one of his best friends, Grant, in July. He wanted a way to honor Grant’s memory in his photos. You can see Grant’s initials on the cross in the photo with the bible. 💔
Are you following me on Instagram? That’s a great place to keep up to date on future openings. I have a couple spots left for my Holiday Family Mini Sessions. Or are you looking for a senior photographer? Either way, you can book a session directly from my online booking calendar, or contact me if you have questions.
