Another day, another senior session! This one is for CHS senior, Alex...another one of my very most very favorite seniors. He was kind of forced into being one of my senior reps, as in, he wasn't given much of a choice...but luckily, he doesn't mind being photographed.
When we got together for his pre-session consult, Alex told me that he was doing this for his mom, so that whatever she wanted, to go with that. So we did. But, considering I know him pretty well, I had to throw in a few images that made me think of him and his style as well. We started out our afternoon at the Marvel Theatre, where you can oftentimes see Alex behind the counter working. This location can be a bit challenging from a lighting perspective, but it is such a gorgeous building, we worked with the challenges.
After the Marvel, we headed to Cross Church, where he spends a lot of time time helping run the soundboard during services. Such a massive church provided us with plenty of spaces for his portraits without even leaving the building!
Him photographing me, photographing him...however, I won this photography battle as he was filmless at this moment. The battle between Nikon and Canon went to Nikon that day, Alex! (Even though when it comes to film photography, I have the exact same camera he's using in this image...)
I had no idea until this day that outside of Cross Church is a gorgeous outdoor area perfect for photographing seniors and small groups. We had so many options out there, but kept it limited because it was a super windy and cold day. Good thing I work quickly!
Our last stop was the old drive-in theatre. Since Alex is a massive movie fan, it was a perfect spot to explore for a few quick portraits.
Even though it was cold and windy that day, and the weather may have forced Alex to pull out his inhaler, we had a great time with him and his mom. I love a chill, laid back senior portrait session!
