Mapleton Oregon High School Senior Pictures Chris is one of my senior models which means he got to be featured in my mall display at Valley River Center in Eugene and on an anti-texting while driving billboard.
It is now the #1 cause of death to America's teens. Thanks to Nation's Mini -Mix support, hopefully we can all help change that.
As a senior model, he got two sessions, one in spring/early summer and one in later summer. He chose to come to my studio for his first photo shoot. Its always fun for me, as there are so many nice options around here in the Washburne Historic District.
Here is another image from that session-outside, looking serious.
As a three sport athlete at Mapleton High School, Chris is also involved with Student Council and HiQ club. He chose to have me go to his school for his second photo shoot.
That was really cool, because I'd never actually been at Mapleton HS, and to see the only 300 meter track (most are all 400 meters) in the state-even in the off season-was pretty unique.
The advantage of going to the school is that I can get sports scenes that are more reflective of his high school experience and memories. This is by the football equipment shed.
Some info about Chris: His favorite food is chicken friend steak. Other faves include Bruno Mars, Junction Boys, Game of Thrones and the color of blue.
One little known fact? He gets his haircut every 2 1/2 weeks. We used some fun special photo shop effects for the image below.
It was great photographing Chris, not only because he was a super nice guy with an effervescent smile, but also I had photographed his sister's senior portraits (below) who also had me take her Mapleton Oregon High School Senior Pictures too. There are so many photographers that one can hire and so when I have a repeat client, it inspires me even more to continue to push myself to create the best images I can.
AND for the Free family, it all started with his parents wedding 24 years ago. In fact, one of their wedding images that I created after their wedding. This wedding image, taken after their wedding, was taken on the Oregon Coast, was featured in the Professional Photographers of America Loan Collection book and at Epcot Center in Florida. I still remember the session vividly, taken not far from Waldport, and how I thought we were getting the typical Oregon beach fog bank, then it lifted and the clouds gave us this nice rectangular lines. I felt God shined on me that day. :-)
Hair, dress and tux? Definitely has that late 80's style!
