Oh my word ! I have such a fun senior session to share with you! When I met with Clayton and his mom to plan out his senior session they scouted locations and found some places I never would have thought of! I loved ideas they suggested that created an industrial senior session in Bluffton Indiana. Let me just say they were very wise. They wrote down the intersections of places they liked which made it so much easier to go straight to them on the day of his shoot!
I’ve driven by this old garage door and rusty building numerous time and I have never thought of shooting there. I absolutely love how this set turned out and don’t know why I never thought of it before??? Clayton’s outfit was perfect for this setting! He has such a James Dean look to him in these! From the first time I met Clayton I remember how quite he is and doesn’t like to draw attention to himself. I have never had a senior get to many comments and horn honks during a session as Clayton did! He was such a good sport and took it all in stride and we just kept shooting.
Next we headed downtown to snap some images with the brick walls he liked. Then it was on to the walking bridge. I’m laughing as I think of that set. It’s not unusual to have to pause for people walking on the bridge. But this night a guy stopped and pulled out his cell phone and started talking right in the frame! LOL! That was a first! Thankfully before too long he decided to move on.
Once we captured all the downtown images Clayton wanted we headed to his schools ball diamond to capture him in his element. When I asked Clayton what he liked best about playing baseball, for him it is about spending time with his friends. As he talked, I could tell he’s made some good friendships over the years from playing little league to high school and travel baseball. And really isn’t that what any sport or activity is about? Learning to work together for a common goal and making friends along the way.
Clayton is very hard working and studious and I can’t wait to see where his future leads! A huge shout-out to Clayton for letting me snap some extra pictures for a special spring project I can’t wait to share with you this winter!
Sit back and enjoy a some of my favorites from his senior session!
