I met this young man in Downtown Kalama for his Senior photos. He’s a Kelso High student (go Highlanders!!). We had a great time wondering around the ally ways and the different areas in downtown Kalama. I hadn’t had a session there before, so it was a lot of fun for me. I really enjoy when seniors choose new locations. It forces me to be creative and I end up glad I didn’t get stuck in a rut.

I had a lot of fun being creative with this session. Even my processing is a bit more edgy. I’m wanting to do more and more “urban” sessions like this.

He was quite the character and the last shot is for his friends at the pool. He’s a lifeguard (and a swimmer) so he wanted to have some goofy photos.

Thanks for letting me photograph you!! It was a blast!!

and finally, my awesome reflector holder/assistant/husband who helped me out with this session. He was a HUGE help. I’m trying to convince him to help me with every session, but he’s not so sure….

  • Love the one by the Portland/Seattle sign, and the one right after that!

  • Amazing! I like the urban edge. Your helper dude is pretty cute, too!

  • Girl, these are awesome! You always find such amazingly yummy lighting! I know this young man will be thrilled with these. Looks like he was a fun guy to photograph! P.S Will you hire your hubby out for reflector services? I see in the pic that he has your round reflector folded back up… something that boggles me everytime I go to do it! LOL
