Congratulations, Elijah, on becoming one of the newest high school graduates in Colorado Springs!
Elijah is a fashionable guy who loves city life and being surrounded by the colors and textures of urban architecture. He’s planning to pursue a career in marketing. While his photography session in downtown Colorado Springs focused most on Elijah with favorite outfits in great urban settings, we love the tribute to his grandfather he included in his session.
All of our high school seniors benefit from a pre-session consultation that plans the session. We want every senior to be fully prepared and build excitement for their photography session. We love hearing about all of their interests and activities and future plans, even when those aspects of who they are will not be a part of the session. We often brainstorm all sorts of ideas so that every senior can think about what they want to bring and never have a moment of “I should’ve” or “I wish I would’ve” after the session. Framed pictures can often help with storytelling portraits during the session, and we love that Elijah thought to bring the picture with his grandfather. Other families sometimes bring a childhood picture of their senior to storytell a “then” and “now” of how much their child has grown and changed over the years. Photography provides a priceless connection of the past to the present, and there are great opportunities to use pictures from the past in today’s sessions.
Enjoy some of our favorites from Elijah’s senior portraits!
