High School senior portraits and weddings are what I love photographing the most.  Here are a few images from Hailey’s senior session from Bret Harte high school in Calaveras County.  Something a little different and fresh.  If you didn’t see, Rangerfinder magazine (a photographer’s magazine)  featured my high school senior portrait work in last month’s issue, and highlighted the American high school senior shoot I did last year in the river.  Check out the shoot here (American High School Session).  You can read the article here: Rangefinder Magazine feature.

I love photographing modern weddings, but I also love capturing high school seniors fashionably.  I can express my ideas and vision not limited to a location, time, nor outfits. I have more say in the vision than a wedding.  Also, I am only giving direction and focused on one person in front of the camera.  Lastly, so many teens live in an insecure world of comparison and by default just want to look good and fit in.  We all do, but the pressure on teenagers is amplified.  When teens are looking to get high school senior photos, they are wanting something extraordinary and epic.  So, when families contact me for senior photos, they are not going to get a cookie-cutter, walk-in, walk-out senior photos. I don’t work like that.  If you’re coming to me, it means you want something more than just quick photos.

I have been photographing seniors recently, and wanted to share a few images from Bret Harte high school senior, Erika.  It seems I photograph many seniors from Amador County, primarily Argonaut high school and Amador high school.  I have photographed seniors from Calaveras High and Bret Harte as you can see here on the American High School photoshoot.  I’m starting to shoot more Calaveras County seniors now, and I’m excited to expand.
