It makes me sad to see people not recognizing the importance of capturing the moments in time that you will most likely forget. We all have those half-memories… the ones where we “kind of” remember an event or a feeling, but then we also don’t really remember.
Photographs, especially PRINTED photographs, spark those memories for us.
Senior year is no different…. what a time of incredible change for our teenagers almost ready to jump into the real world! Capturing that is such a gift.. for them AND for you!
Trey chose to do his senior shoot at a park and on the track of his high school. He was on the track team and this place became a really meaningful place to him. I love when kids embrace what they love, and incorporate it into their sessions.
Trey will be attending USC. Best of luck, Trey!
