Caleb | Falcon High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Caleb excelled in athletics during his high school years, both at Falcon High School and on USA National teams. His primary sports were football and wrestling, and he was the school captain for both teams.

For his senior portraits, Caleb had a portion of the photography at the high school to feature his sports and then a second portion at Garden of the Gods. His session day was quite a wintery mix, filled with freezing rain and a fog. While not the weather most people would embrace for outdoor photography, Caleb was up for it, and Jon was able to create incredibly unique portraits for this family.

Congratulations, Caleb, on your graduation. Enjoy all the new chapters unfolding in life!

Gabe | St. Mary’s High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

We wanted to make sure not to miss Gabe’s Class of 2019 feature, so we’ll pause our posts from the Class of 2020 to share a few more posts that look back to last season.

Gabe spent his high school years competing on the soccer, football, and basketball teams, and he equally loved each of these sports. He’s outgoing and friendly and has a heart for welcoming new students and making sure everyone is included. When he’s not playing sports, he also enjoys hiking.

Gabe is the youngest in his family, and we loved photographing all of their boys’ senior portraits over the past handful of years. We cannot be more complimented than by the loyalty of so many of our client families.

His session was photographed at the very start of November last fall, so his portraits reflect that changing of the fall season into the early whispers of winter…well, perhaps more than whispers when you see the covering of snow in some of the portraits! We’re excited to share favorites from his multi-location Senior Experience photography session.

Gabe’s already into the next chapters of his life, and we’ll be excited to see his family in 2020 for family portraits. It’ll be a great time to catch up with the whole family!

Alyssa | Pine Creek High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2020

Alyssa’s family has lived all over the United States, and she has loved living close to the ocean in many of those places. In land-locked Colorado, she enjoys spending time at the pool and at Lake Pueblo, and she also loves hiking. She’s played volleyball competitively in the past and continues to stay active at the gym.

For her senior portraits, Alyssa was hoping for fields of flowers, and we were able to schedule her for the right time of year and at a perfect setting to deliver! One of my favorite parts of our time with her family was at her View & Choose sales appointment – her younger sister just beamed as she looked at the beautiful portraits of her big sister. There was a sparkle in her eye that showed just how much she loves and looks up to Alyssa.

When high school graduation comes, Alyssa plans to pursue a career in medicine, and she’s excited at the potential to attend a university that would take her back to the hotter weather she loves.

Enjoy favorites from a flower-filled senior session!

Cole | Palmer Ridge High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2020

Cole is an athletic and musical high school senior who competes on the Palmer Ridge High School wrestling team and plays saxophone in the band ensembles. When he’s not in school, he enjoys reading and video games. Both he and his dad have a deep love for the Ford Mustang that dad has worked on for years. One day, it’ll become Cole’s car.

For his high school senior photography, Cole’s family matched well with our most popular one-hour Senior Session and chose an urban setting. We’re excited to share favorites from his session that features all of his interests in storytelling portraits matched with settings that provide a rich variety of textures and colors.

Enjoy your senior year, Cole, and we wish you the best as you finish high school strong and take your next steps!

Joshua | The Classical Academy High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2020

Joshua is an artistic, friendly, and talented high school senior. He’s involved in a wide variety of activities that include playing cello in The Colorado Springs Youth Symphony, color guard with the high school marching band, Boy Scouts, and saxophone in some of the high school ensembles. He’s also artistic and enjoys art and sketching.

For his high school senior portraits, he matched well with our longer Senior Experience with an emphasis on his urban location of Old Colorado City. For the smaller set of natural portraits, Jon took him to Bear Creek Park. Joshua brought some items with him to represent some of his areas of interest and expertise, and these items brought great storytelling into his senior pictures.

As Joshua looks ahead to his next steps after high school, he would love to study art yet also loves the ocean and could see a career in marine biology. We’ve enjoyed our time getting to know him and his family and know these senior portraits will always bring to mind favorite memories from this time in his life.
