Collin | Louisa County High School – Class of 2018 – Charlottesville Senior Portraits

It’s been such a busy fall that I’m woefully behind with updating my blog. In honor of the LCHS Lions making it to the Class 4 State Championship game (which they’ll play tomorrow afternoon), I wanted to make sure I added Collin’s session to my website ASAP! He currently plays left guard with the LCHS offensive line and has been on the varsity team for the past four years. He’s played football since he was eight years old so there was no doubt his session was going to involve his favorite sport!

I couldn’t resist taking a old photo of of facebook to compare it with the yearbook photo I took of Collin. He’s still just as handsome as ever!

We started the session with a few casual shots of Collin around the stadium. The lion that Collin is standing in front of actually blows fire out of it’s mouth when LCHS scores a touchdown!! How cool is that?!

As the session went on, we were fortunate to see the most incredible sunset! The colors kept getting richer and more vibrant…it was so dramatic!

No doubt Collin is a force to be reckoned with on the field but he was one of the sweetest, most polite guys I’ve ever photographed. Paige, I know you and your family are so unbelievably proud of the man you’ve raised!

Collin has already been accepted at Randolph Macon, Hampton Sydney and Bridgewater and is waiting to hear back from a few other schools. No matter where he attends college, I know he’ll do amazing things. Both on and off the field!!

Thank you so much for an wonderful afternoon Collin and Paige!! I loved every minute of your session and wish you nothing but the best with your future plans. Enjoy the rest of your senior year!

GOOD LUCK AT THE GAME TOMORROW LCHS !! We’re all rooting for you!!

It’s been such a busy fall that I’m woefully behind with updating my blog. In honor of the LCHS Lions making it to the Class 4 State Championship game (which they’ll play tomorrow afternoon), I wanted to make sure I added Caleb’s extreme sports session to my website ASAP!

I first met Caleb and his mom Stacey when they came to my studio for his yearbook photos. While I loved the way his yearbook photo turned out, I was super excited for his sports session. That’s where you let your passion for your sport show!

Caleb has been playing football since he was ten years old. First with Little League, then Middle School. He currently plays wide receiver, safety and defensive end for LCHS. Caleb has applied to Virginia Tech and James Madison University.

I am in love with these extreme sports portraits! I keep the photos black and white so you don’t have to deal with competing colors of the uniforms and equipment. All you are focusing on is the athlete and their gear. Photos like these are a wonderful alternative to traditional sports portraits!

Thanks for an excellent session Caleb & Stacey! Caleb enjoy the rest of your senior year and good luck with your future plans!

GOOD LUCK AT THE GAME TOMORROW LCHS !! We’re all rooting for you!!

Gage | OCHS – Class of 2017 – Charlottesville

I hope everyone had a great summer! I’ve been busy taking senior yearbook photos for FCHS, LCHS and a few of the other schools. If you haven’t taken yours yet, no worries. I’m still scheduling them! I had a little bit of a break though so I though I’d update my blog with some of my spring sessions from the Class of 2017!

Nothing makes me happier then when seniors personalize their senior portraits and Gage sure did that! He wanted part of his session to include shot put & discus on the UVA track. He also wanted some sunset shots with motorcycle. I was super happy to accommodate him! While I’ve photographed both many sports before, this was my first time photographing this!

Discus is Gage’s favorite sport (he actually holds the record for this at his school) so we mainly concentrated on that. I was amazed by how far he could throw it. I guess that’s why he holds the record! 🙂

Love this silhouette shot of Gage!

After the sports photos, we headed to Fluvanna to take a few casual shots. Gage is a smiley guy but I just had to get a serious shot!

A quick outfit change and we were able to take advantage of the setting sun…love this golden light!

Last shots of the day were with Gage and his motorcycle. He works at a Harley Dealership in Orange, Va where his job is to take people on test drives. How cool is that?!

Thank you so much for a great afternoon Gage!! I has so much fun spending the afternoon with you and you family. Good luck at Liberty! In July, he set a new collegiate meet record for discus! Talk about a great start to your college career!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I’ve loved working with the Class of 2017 but now it’s time to pass the torch to the class of 2018!

A few weeks ago, I had my group session with my 2018 senior models. I’ve learned my lesson about having our group session too early in the year. In the past I’ve had to reschedule it multiple times due to weather. This year we waited until June so there would be less chance of inclement weather. I’m glad we waited because we couldn’t have asked for a better day!

I’ll be photographing this awesome bunch throughout the school year (including our themed sessions) so stay tuned!

First we have the up and coming seniors representing Fluvanna County High School in Palmyra, Va.

Josh | FCHS – Class of 2017 – Charlottesville Senior Portraits

Josh | FCHS | 2017 – Sports Portraits – Charlottesville

I know many guys aren’t into the idea of a big portrait session. That’s where sports portraits come in. I take a few casual, smiling photos (yes guys, your mom wants a few photos of you smiling!) and then the rest of the session is you, playing the sports that you love. While smiles are allowed, the certainly are not required!

When Josh’s mom suggested breaking his sports portrait session into three different sessions, I was intrigued! Over the summer, I’d take casual studio photos (along with his yearbook photo), some basketball photos in the FCHS gym in the winter, and in the spring, baseball photos on the school’s field. I thought it was a fantastic idea! Not only did I get to photograph Josh playing the sports that he loves, but it would also help document how he has changed over the school year.

Before I knew it, it was time for Josh’s basketball session! I’m always so thankful to the coaches for taking time out of their schedules to let us into the gym…especially during their winter break!

Time flew by again and we geared up for the final session…baseball! Some photographers might be upset when it’s overcast for a session but I love the dramatic sky it can provide!

Last but not least, I had to share two photos of Josh and his parents. I encourage parents to take a photo or two with their senior…it’s an important time in your lives and you should have some quality photos to remember it by! Thanks for a memorable year Josh, Jody and Robert. I really enjoyed working with you guys and wish Josh nothing but the best at Longwood University!
