During our most popular Excursion Session, our high school seniors get to explore during 3 hours of photography, focused on them. That doesn’t mean a best friend can’t drop in, or that Fido the dog isn’t included. Most important to many seniors are family members, so they are often invited to join the fun too, especially toward the end of the session.

Family Portrait at Sunset with Olympic Mountains

In this senior session, we hoped for a Seattle Sunset including silhouetted Olympic mountains. Luck delivered the perfect day, despite a summer of smoke-filled skies.

Meeting before the photography session, I learned what was important, from guitar, to record stores, to family, and nature. We talked about clothing, color schemes to highlight their home and wall images, and most importantly, about the family relationships.

I’m always searching for your ideas for senior sessions: locations you love, varied interests such as band, sports, writing poetry, and how we might illustrate these concepts.
