It’s senior session season again. Every year, I’m excited to see the new crop of young people getting ready to enter adulthood, and every year, I’m impressed with the kids I get to meet. This time around, I met up with Joe for a senior session at a nearby hidden location in Chippewa Falls. I loved getting to know this young man and celebrating this exciting time in his life with him.
Joey is an active senior at Cadott High School. He’s into football and basketball, so I made sure to get pictures of him wearing his jerseys to show off his love of the game. He put on his game face (and game paint) for some epic shots—looking like he was ready to take on a championship game. When taking pictures with high school seniors, I love taking the opportunity to capture their interests and passions.
While Joey had a very fierce game time expression, talking to him in person, I found he was incredibly laid back and had no problem relaxing and just being himself. He was really easy to get along with, which meant his session was a breeze! We balanced the serious sports shots with some more relaxed portraits that showed off Joe’s All-American smile. These images really show what Joey is all about – serious about his life decisions, and then some fun times when he can hang and be himself. It’s always great to photograph seniors like this, because their personalities shine through as soon as they let themselves open up. I really enjoyed getting to see both sides of this driven young man.
Joe, thanks for letting me get to know you! Just looking at these images, it looks like you’re ready to take on the world, and I know you’re ready for everything the future brings you.
