Life and Senior Pictures

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve updated the blog. Isn’t it funny how life throws things at us, sometimes of our own making and other times not. Regardless, I plan to make this blog a priority! Stay tuned.

 

 

 

Recently, I was able to do some Senior Pictures for a co-worker’s (Brenda) son, Chris. I’m still learning the area and searching out all the locations that would make good photo shoot backdrops. I suggested Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park because it offered good backgrounds with the little stone buildings and train tracks. Unfortunately, many of the fall leaves were off the trees due to windy conditions a few days before. Still, we managed to get some great shots in.

Brenda and  Chris had another location in mind, the Mandan Indian Village Site in Bismarck,  and we ended up going there too. It was a great location and has given me an additional shooting site.

Chris was a great model, pleasant and easy to work with. He has that chiseled look many people would pay good money to have. I asked him what his future plans were. Like so many, he isn’t sure. Chris was sure about going to college and furthering his education. I encouraged him to find something he loved to do and not settle on less. I sure wish him the best of luck on his life journey.

  1. Yes, we get so caught up in life some things get pushed aside. I haven’t written for my own blog in forever and it’s good to see you back at yours. I always enjoyed following your posts and hope to see more.

    A handsome young man named Chris; I couldn’t help but remember.

    You did a wonderful job with the session and just as your landscapes are more beautiful than ever so have your portraits improved as well. You’ve given Chris and his mom moments they will treasure always. Best wishes with all Renda.
