Garret | Vista Ridge High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2021

Garret is an athletic and easygoing senior, and in just a few more weeks, will celebrate becoming one of Vista Ridge High School’s newest graduates!

Garret enjoys many sports, yet baseball has held a prominent place for him. He began playing baseball on club teams and continued during his years in high school on the school team. He’s a well-rounded player with shortstop and second base his favorite positions to play. When not on the baseball field, you can find him playing casual games of basketball with friends or enjoying a favorite beverage at Dutch Bros.

Garden of the Gods provided a wonderful setting for his senior portraits. Jon captured much variety during his one-hour senior session, including portraits to feature baseball and Jon’s signature silhouettes. We’re excited to share favorites from his session and celebrate his upcoming graduation.

Congratulations, Garret! We wish you our best as you graduate and prepare for all your next steps!

Maya | Palmer High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2021

We are incredibly blessed to enjoy the loyalty of return business from so many families. This is one of those families, and perhaps Maya might be one of our most treasured seniors to photograph this year. This girl has been waiting patiently (well, her mom may use a different description!) for 9 years for her senior portraits. We photographed her older brothers’ senior portraits in 2011 and 2014 and even back then, she couldn’t wait for her turn. I can still remember her coming to her brothers’ reveal appointments with stars in her eyes for when she would be a senior.

She beamed excitement at her consultation, enjoyed every second of her photography sessions, and should forever look at her portraits and know without a doubt that she is stunning, strong, and loved.

Maya is outgoing, has an effervescent personality, and is kind and loving. She exudes confident pride in her heritage, loves Paris, Batman, Legos, and the color pink. She’s competed in both swimming and track. She’s planning a career as a social worker – a perfect plan for someone with a big heart.

Congratulations, Maya!! We have loved every minute of celebrating this milestone with you!

The Schmidt Family | Colorado Springs Family Portraits

We first met Ben & Ally in 2012 when they chose Jonathan for their engagement portraits. What a treat to see them again this past fall and meet their kids for a family session. In the years in between, they’ve moved from, returned to, and are moving again from Colorado Springs. We’re so glad we created these iconic family portraits to celebrate their family of four and give them portrait art to preserve favorite memories from the years they have been here.

Andrew | Banning Louis Academy | Class of 2021

Andrew is excited to complete high school and pursue his dreams for possible careers in architecture, graphic design, or artificial intelligence.

He’s attended Banning Louis Academy yet is dually enrolled and completing all of his classes this year at the collegiate level with Pikes Peak Community College. When not studying or in class, he enjoys relaxing with video games. Andrew is an accomplished musician and even composes original music on the piano.

Andrew loved choosing an urban setting for his high school senior portraits and matched well with our one-hour Senior Session. We know these portraits will always bring to mind favorite memories from his years in high school.

Congratulations, Andrew! We know you’ll finish strong in the coming weeks, and we’ve loved playing a role in celebrating your accomplishments!
