Lauryn | Vista Ridge High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2018

We loved seeing Lauryn’s family again after having first met them a few years ago for her older brother’s senior portraits!

Lauryn has been incredibly active with her high school serving in a wide variety of leadership roles: Student Council Treasurer, Alphas, Co-Editor-in-Chief for the yearbook, Boys’ Basketball Manager, and playing on the softball team. When she’s not serving and leading her school community, she loves spending time with her friends and enjoys exploring Manitou Springs.

For her senior portraits, Lauryn was excited for our Senior Experience session and the opportunity for two different locations. She matched well with Old Colorado City for graffiti and urban elements and then Red Rock Canyon for rustic, Colorado scenes.

She’s excited to graduate Vista Ridge High School next month and begin college in the fall. She’s considering careers in either criminal justice or as an anesthesiologist. Best wishes to you, Lauryn, with all your next steps!

Jacob | Heritage Christian High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2018

We’ve loved reconnecting with this family for another time for senior portraits for their sons!

Jacob is easygoing, funny, and expressive. He has a wide variety of activities and interests. When indoors, you can find him reading, singing, or learning bass guitar. When outside, he loves camping and hunting and snowboarding in the winter months. He’s an avid basketball player. He also loves his car – a Ford Mustang convertible.

Jacob’s family loves our multi-location Senior Experience sessions. For Jacob, the perfect combination of settings included downtown Colorado Springs with the Colorado College campus and Garden fo the Gods. His session perfectly timed vibrant fall colors and showcases the wide variety of backgrounds that our Senior Experience session provides.

As Jacob finishes high school, he’s looking forward to pursuing a career in physical therapy or anything in the field of medicine.

Kaylee | Doherty High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2018

Kaylee is a high school senior with a strong sense of adventure. She loves art, reading, and music. Her musical accomplishments include violin, acoustic guitar, and piano. She loves hiking outdoors, especially in settings with creeks and waterfalls.

She chose our one-hour Senior Session for her photography and matched perfectly with Cheyenne Cañon as her setting. Her session timed well for some beautiful fall colors, and as you’ll see, her portraits capture her musical interests and her favorite elements of the outdoors.

In just a few short weeks, Kaylee will count herself among Doherty High School’s newest graduates. She’s looking forward to traveling the world as she takes her next steps in life!

Noah | Discovery Canyon High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2018

Noah is a senior with a unique and fun personality. He’s in orchestra and has played violin since age five. He runs cross country. His family has been in Colorado for two years after time in Texas, and shortly after graduation, they’ll move out East.

Noah loved our one-hour senior session and was excited to use Old Colorado City as the setting for his photography. Old Colorado City is a great location for urban elements, fun colors, and rustic, weathered textures.

Noah, we hope you enjoy the last weeks of high school before all your next steps unfold. We’ve enjoyed getting to know you and your family!

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!
