I always have so much fun with senior sessions! Part of what I love about photographing seniors is that they have this positive, excited, fresh outlook on life. They are celebrating a big achievement, graduating high school, and moving on to the next phase, the next chapter in their story. A story which makes it uniquely them. Another part I love about meeting and working with seniors is hearing their dreams for the future. And when I heard that Keely aspires to become an officer in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Army, I was in awe. Now I don’t know much about the military, but I do know that it takes a huge amount of hard work, dedication, and devotion to endure everything from training to fighting for your country and fellow Americans. Perhaps Keely’s time in the pool has laid a firm foundation. She’s a swimmer, and practices and trains at least twice a day. On the day of our session, she had already done her morning workout before 5am! Besides her love of swimming, she enjoys auto-crossing and go-karting when she has free time. And she loves all types of food. Everything from good ol’ peanut butter to Korean, Indian, Thai, and Afghani food! If that weren’t enough, she had just returned from a holiday vacation with family and friends in Hawaii, where the weather had been perfectly beautiful! You may be asking, “Well, why didn’t you do the session in Hawaii?!” I must admit that I did offer to accompany Keely and her family to that tropical paradise, however, it would have been a lot of traveling for one day! 😉 In all seriousness, we had a blast, and I’ve been so excited to share some of my favorites since posting a quick Sneak Peek on facebook, so let’s get right to it! Keely, thank you for making my job so much fun!!! Family and friends can see Keely’s online gallery here!
