Danny’s shoot was one of my favorites last year.
I’m a little biased because we have a little history.
Danny is the son of a high school classmate and a member of a great family that I grew up with in Beaverdale.
He also came and job shadowed with me when he was in 8th grade.

He’s one of those people who has always seemed older than they were.
He’s never been uncomfortable around or holding an impressive conversation with adults.
An old soul, for sure.

The best thing about Danny’s shoot was that he kind of let me go at it.
He is artistic and has a great eye for photography.
He also did a package where he got a shorter, second-day shoot a couple of months later.
I always like rounding out a senior shoot with a part 2.

Good luck, Danny! Keep in touch!

I did a lot of senior portraits last year and have even more lined up for this year.
It’s interesting, but not surprising, that my focus changes with my age and the age of my kids.
Now that Sadie is approaching her senior year, I really love spending time with people in the same stage of their journey.

I try really hard, in all of my photography, not to imprint myself on the people I’m photographing.
I try not to spend too much time posing or directing. I try to catch them being who they are, naturally.
Somehow I get really lucky to photograph people who make my job really easy.

Abbey was adorable and so fun to be around.
