cole in the canyon | cottonwood heights high school senior photographer

Taking time for your high school senior photo session isn’t usually high on the to-do list for guys – but I promise it’s worth it! They usually aren’t looking forward to smiling for the camera, the thought of outfit changes isn’t something they are begging for. But once we get them out there, they’ll start having a little fun. Making sure that they take part in the planning (if they’re open to it) and asking for thoughts on what they want it to look like, where they might want the session is helpful. Making them comfortable is key, and know that for sure we’re going to try and get a couple mother and son photos, this is your warning. (I also might tear up, but that’s fairly typical at my senior sessions).

Let’s look for ways to have your son’s senior sessions become something you both can look back on and smile. Let’s get creative and come up with a session that he loves. This session in the canyon was one of my favorites, he was great to work with and happy to go along with the flow.

beautiful brunette dancer at the studio | salt lake city utah high school senior photographer

I was so excited to photograph this gorgeous dancer at the studio, she brought a bunch of great outfits and was so comfortable in front of the camera. We spent an afternoon together with her mom making sure that we got the images that best represented her at this time in her life. Photographing seniors is my favorite – I love hearing about their plans and their dreams as they leave high school and transition into the next phase of their lives. So many of them are off doing new things, some are moving far away and some are staying home or close to home. Each of them are finding their way, some are nervous and some are excited and I love talking with them all and learning more about their next steps.

I love looking back through these older sessions and making sure that I get them up on the blog…she’s gorgeous and I’m so grateful that I was able to photograph her during this time in her life before she moved on to the next step in her young adulthood. If you’re a senior this year, it’s time to get on the schedule for you session, let’s go create some magic.

charlie at the field | cottonwood heights high school senior photographer

Earlier I shared Charlie’s senior session in the canyon – but now you can check out the images that showcase his love of football. When your senior is multi-passionate it is a great idea to add on a session that can showcase some of the things that make them who they are. If they’ve spent hours upon hours focusing their attention on something while growing up I think it’s so important to give that love some space in the celebration of their graduation. There are lots of different ways to do this, so let’s get creative!

claire at the salt flats | sandy utah high school senior photographer

Today my sweet girl turns 18 and I am so very proud. This year has been so strange…one of my children newly away in college and graduating another (nevermind the weeks at home, distance learning, etc). I loved having these kids close together when they were young, but boy is this difficult as they are teens. I was so happy to have several sessions with my daughter this year because I am so not ready for her to be moving on. I know that she is more than ready…but turning 18 and graduating college in less than a span of a week might be more than this mama heart can handle. Shine bright, beautiful girl…go love the world as only you can.

Seniors…this year has been so very different from what we all expected. My heart hurts for the things that you had been looking forward to that ended up being vastly different from what you had been imagining your entire lives. Look for the little spots of beauty in what has been going on. In our home it meant more time together as a family than we had ever envisioned at this point in our lives. I’m thinking of you…there is still time to celebrate you, and it is well deserved.
