charlie in the canyon | cottonwood heights utah high school senior photographer

I love photographing high school senior guys even though I’m pretty sure that the idea of a senior photography session isn’t high on their to do list. I firmly believe in the importance of photographs of your senior, this time is such a huge milestone in their lives – and in yours. It is important to document this time in a way that everyone gets their needs met. I want to always make sure that my seniors are happy and that we’re getting the shots that they want – if that means a quick 30 minute session up the canyon or a more involved session including outfit changes. The session can be what you want, let’s get together and figure out the best option for your senior. Charlie and I had a quick trip up the canyon to make sure that he had some images to compliment his football session at the high school field that took place earlier in his senior year. I love how they turned out and I loved getting a chance to get to know him a bit better and chat about his plans for the coming year. Congrats on your graduation, Charlie, I know you’re off to do amazing things!

If you have a son who is graduating next year, take some time to talk with them about a senior session. What is important to them and what is important to you as far as senior photos go? Do they want an athlete session? Just a regular session? Are they up for the idea but want it to be pretty quick and painless? We can absolutely make that happen.

allix in the pool | cottonwood heights utah high school senior athlete photographer

As a high school senior athlete photographer I have a special spot in my heart for swimmers and polo players. If you didn’t catch this beauty’s senior session at the studio you have to take a look here…she’s a stunner for sure! And she’s a pretty fierce athlete to boot. Allix has been a swimmer and water polo player for as long as I can remember and it’s been great fun to watch her grow and dedicate her time to her sports over the years. There’s something pretty intense about a water polo player. Their determination and tenacity required to play the sport makes for some pretty amazing athletes and wonderful people.

Getting to photograph high school seniors in their element is such a great addition to their senior session. I’m looking forward to the class of 2020 seniors and what amazing images we can create together. Want to see more of these seniors? Are you a high school senior athlete? Let’s be friends on Instagram, I want to support you as you go into your senior year! Check out Carrie Owens Photography on Instagram here!

jack at the east football stadium | salt lake city utah senior athlete photographer

This senior is mine. And today he graduates. We took these senior football photos at the East High School football stadium after his season had ended for the year but you can see his football session at the salt flats on this older blog post. It was quite the senior year for him…and for me. Being a mom of a senior is much different than being a senior yourself or watching from the sidelines as your friends parent their seniors. Taking his senior photos this year was emotional for me, knowing what it all means in our lives. Knowing that he’s no longer a high school kid and that he’s moving on to the next chapter of his life, which means I won’t get to see him every morning anymore. I kind of hate that. But I also remember this time in my own life and how ready and excited I was to head out to school. I know he’s ready and he’s going to be just fine.

I am so very proud of this kid of mine. He has proven time and time again that he won’t back down from a challenge and that he is driven and focused on his goals and being the best version of himself that he can be. I am proud to be his mom and grateful for our relationship, he’s a pretty awesome young man (even with that crazy hair!). I’m excited to watch him this coming year at Utah State – only great things ahead.

quentin in the canyon | cottonwood heights high school senior photographer

If you haven’t seen this young man’s swim session at the pool, you need to go check it out. Like most of my seniors we typically do a traditional senior session (either at my studio or a location of their choosing like the canyons) and an athlete session showcasing their sport of choice. Here you can see Quentin’s senior athlete session at the Cottonwood Heights Recreation Center pool…the same pool he’s been swimming in since he’s been a little kid. I can’t believe how these little kids that I once knew have grown up.

I still have a few class of 2019 seniors to showcase but it’s about to be the class of 2020 who gets to shine. With summer right around the corner, it’s the very best time to start scheduling your photo session…especially if you need a pool session!

allix at the studio | salt lake city utah high school senior photographer

Allix is another class of 2019 senior that I’ve been able to watch grow up since middle school through swimming and water polo and friendships with my children. I loved  having Allix and her mom in the studio, she’s hilarious and has always been such a kind friend to my kids. This opportunity to get to know her a bit better during our sessions (she has a pool session coming up to showcase her swimming and her water polo skills…be on the lookout for that!!) and seeing her sweet relationship with her mom made me smile…I’m so excited for her future, I know she’s going to continue to do amazing things!

These class of 2019 senior sessions are so bittersweet for me. I love that I’ve been able to watch so many of them grow up and I can’t wait to see what they get to do next. I hope you’re getting ready, class of 2020…you’re next!!
