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.

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!!

eliza | salt lake city utah high school senior photographer

One of my favorite senior sessions from long ago was a two part-er…you may remember her session that was cut short due to rain – even though it was amazing! – check out Eliza’s rainy senior session here. We decided to attempt another session once the weather cleared up and I’m so glad that we did. She brought some gorgeous dresses and we had so much fun.

I loved that she brought so many formal dresses – we had such a great time out in the garden. When a senior asks what to bring for their session I will always suggest bringing one of your dresses from a dance if you have one – why not get some more use out of it? And they always photograph beautifully. When thinking about your senior session are you worried about what you will wear? Send me a message and let’s start figuring out some options that show off your personality!

madie swim session | salt lake city utah high school senior athlete photographer

The class of 2019 was pretty full of athletes and I absolutely loved it. I love getting to photograph seniors in their element and doing the things that they love. And swim sessions? I love those so very much. But Madie is both a swimmer and a water polo player so we made sure to get shots of both. Make sure to check out Madie’s session in the canyon and then keep scrolling here for some amazing pool images.

With school wrapping up…and my son graduating in just under two weeks…things seem crazy here. I finally really feel all of those emotions that my senior moms have been feeling when I’ve photographed their children. Wow. What an emotional time for all. Many of these seniors that I’ve been photographing this year have been quite emotional for me, so happy that I’ve been able to watch these kids grow up into amazing young adults. Looking forward to this upcoming summer and fall senior season as I begin to photograph my daughter’s senior class and her friends…time could slow down a bit and I would support that completely!!
