Derek's Senior Photo Session in Studio and On Location
Derek stepped into my home studio in Johnstown looking like he had just stepped off the cover of GQ. Serious. See the photos below. I looked at the first test shot and exclaimed, "We're done here!" It was perfect. Derek was confident, relaxed, laid-back and totally cooperative, a pleasure to photograph.
The proof is in the results. We started with the formals and then his Mom went out to grab a basketball for an idea we had. That gave us a chance to get a few shots of Derek and his father. When the basketball got there we had fun with some dramatic, more creative poses.
After the studio we headed to Pitt-Johnstown and met up with Derek's BFF Kaitlyn for some casual couple photos and more individuals of Derek. The weather was a bit chill and breezy but the PittJo campus is an ideal setting for portraits any season of the year. From there it was on to the Summerhill playground, site of Derek's Eagle Scout project, and that's a wrap."The photos are AWESOME! Everyone agrees they are AWESOME! Thanks for the great work."
Loved working with Derek and his parents and Kaitlyn. Their enthusiasm was contagious and swept us through the afternoon. I can't wait for their family portrait session later this month. Love the Forest Hills School District too. They've got all the important senior info on their website and countless locations for creative, unique photography.
