AJ: A Senior Ready for Takeoff!

AJ's finishing up his high school career having shared time at a couple of high schools in pursuit of his athletic passion in wrestling. It's paid off, as he's got a boatload of medals and accomplishments and is heading to Grand Canyon College in Phoenix next year to joing their wrestling squad.

I liked him the moment we were introduced, he had poise and confidence in who he is, he seems ready to tackle the world, to take the leap into the next phase of his life.

Isn't that the goal of four years of school?

Thanks AJ for the chance to shoot your senior portraits, you're ready for take off!

Taylor, A Senior Year

Taylor Scott has had quite a run in high school. Academically capable, athletically talented, she's made the most of her opportunities for four years.

She's been a part of the ASB leadership, a four year member of the soccer team (which won the CIF Title in 2010!) and has also competed on the track team. Voted the homecoming queen for her school in 2009, well, as you can see, she's accomplished a lot!

She's done it all with a great attitude and a beautiful smile and laughter that is infectious. What a privilege it was to be asked to shoot her senior portraits, capturing in a moment, a bit of what those who know and love her have seen on display for quite some time.

Congratulations, Taylor, on a job well done! Your time has been well spent and you will be a treasure to Point Loma University I'm sure!

Taylor: Senior Preview

Here's a sneak peak of what I'm working on for Taylor ... great shoot, great senior! More to come in the next days! The girl loves to smile, and has a great one, but since it took almost the entire shoot to get a "serious look" nailed, I thought I'd start with one of my faves!

Derek and the Fam

I've had the pleasure of knowing Derek for four years now. He's a class act in every way! The guy is graduating this year, one of the top students in his class of some 700 ... and he's awaiting admittance into Stanford, San Luis Obisbo, etc ... you get the idea.

He's also an amazing athlete and has been a key figure of his cross country and track teams while at King High in Riverside. He understands hard work, team work, fair play and grit. The world needs more men like Derek!

The whole family came along for the shoot, so we snagged a few of the very photogenic and lovely about an easy shoot!
