California High School Senior Portrait Photography
Photographer, Charleton Churchill

I have been working with high school students for a long time and photographing seniors is top on my list. It is always an adventure when I’m out photographing soon-to-be graduates because the ones that contact me for photographs do not want cookie cutter senior portrait photos; they are looking for something with style and fashion, something that looks cool. One of the writers for a well-known photographic magazine, Rangefinder Magazine, interviewed me about my senior photography work, and told me on the phone, “many people say their high school senior photos look cool, but when I see your high school senior photography, your seniors really do display cool.” I believe with a little direction, a senior can look cool and fashionable.

With Morgan, a senior at Amador High School, and her beautiful horse, we captured not only the cool, but also the sweet and hardworking girl she is to her friends and family. One of the many great features about Morgan, besides being Miss Amador, is that she has been selected as the highest ranking graduate of her class, the role of Valedictorian. Congratulations to Morgan and her hard work. Here are some images from her senior session.

It rained today in northern California. I had a high school senior scheduled for this day of photographs, for the studio fashion shots, and outside on the river. A few days ago, we received the report that it would rain, so Holly called with that question in mind. I said, “Awesome! Let’s shoot in the rain!” It’s going rain quite a bit this season I suppose, bring it on. Many photographers complain they can’t shoot in the rain. I’ve had a few clients cancel because of rain, but I’m believing any good photographer can shoot almost anywhere. So, I wanted to show off a few preview senior shots of some in my studio and the others outside in the rain on the Mokelumne River on Hwy 49. We totally had fun and Holly killed the session (meaning she did an awesome job). These images are just a few quick selects from the session, straight from the camera, with minor touch-up. Wait until you see the rest…
