Katrina | Sand Creek High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2018

Katrina is a senior with a strong sense of self and confidence. She describes herself as intelligent, competitive, honest, and somewhat of an over-achiever. She’s set her sights on graduating as valedictorian, so she’s not one to be slacking off in this final semester at Sand Creek High School! She’s already been completing college-level classes at PPCC. Katrina loves creative writing and working on novels. She has a strong artistic side and enjoys painting, sculpting, and drawing. She’s heavily involved in Junior Optimist International and has served in the leadership for her chapter and the Colorado-Wyoming District. And if all that hasn’t kept her busy enough, she’s spent many years playing competitive inline hockey. Whew!

We’ve loved reconnecting with this family for a new round of senior portraits, and as a returning family, they knew coming into the pre-session consultation that they wanted the multi-hour Senior Experience session. Rather than choose two locations, the longer session was used to explore much deeper into Red Rock Canyon. The additional time allowed Jon to take portraits off the typical path used during one-hour sessions, bringing a freshness to much of her settings in this beautiful place.

As she finishes high school, she’s set her sights on pursuing a business degree and sees herself as a future entrepreneur. Katrina, we wish you all our best as you complete high school and begin new chapters in life!

Brent | Fountain-Fort Carson High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2018

Brent is an athlete and car enthusiast. His favorites are in the BMW family and he dreams of a career in automotives or motor sports and would love to be in Germany one day. As an athlete, he’s a competitive swimmer with favorite events including the 200 and 500 freestyle. Brent loves the outdoors.

For his senior photography, Brent’s family loved our longer Senior Experience session. In the longer session, we’re able to provide variety in settings, and Brent matched well with Colorado College campus, Manitou Springs, and a brief stop in Garden of the Gods to end the session. We’re excited to share favorites from his senior portraits and love the combination of striking, strong, classic portraits interwoven with dynamic portraits capturing his love for swimming and for cars.

Congratulations, Brent, on your upcoming graduation from Fountain-Fort Carson High School!

Madison | Cheyenne Mountain High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2018

Madi is in the midst of her final weeks of high school and will soon graduate from Cheyenne Mountain High School. She is an avid horse rider and currently spends much time with her new horse. She’s incredibly active with the high school athletic program as a trainer for the baseball, volleyball, lacrosse, wrestling, and football teams. She’s gained amazing experience in sports medicine with all of her work with these teams and plans to pursue a career in the medical field. This year she worked on her CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) license. Clearly she’s going places!

Her family has created many memories over the years at their cabin up in the Woodland Park area, and Madi was excited to connect her senior portraits to all these memories. We provided a destination session for her at this vacation community up in the mountains. Jon enjoyed exploring a new area and capturing portraits in a place she loves so well. We’re excited to share favorites from her session with you!

Gabriel | Lewis Palmer High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2018

Gabe is a high school senior guy with a wide variety of activities, interests, and accomplishments. He’s artistic and excels in metal work and ceramics. He’s an avid rock climber and the captain of the school’s team. Under his leadership, the team completed in state competition. He’s a skilled shot and trains in shooting at the Olympic Training Center. He definitely loves the outdoors and his Jeep. If we’d get snow this year, he enjoys snowboarding in the winter months.

Gabe matched best with our one-hour Senior Session and loved Cheyenne Cañon for the setting of his photography. At his pre-session consultation, we’d suggested he bring items that represent much of his interests and activities. His portraits reflect so much of these aspects of his world, and we love all the variety and unique portraits Jon was able to create with him! Gabriel’s family gave Jon complete artistic freedom and creativity and the results are dynamic.

As he completes his time in high school and graduates from Lewis Palmer, he’s looking into the Air Force Academy and the Air Force or possibly the ROTC. He would love a career as a pilot and also has interests in management. Congratulations, Gabriel, on all your accomplishments thus far and on your upcoming graduation!
