Late August is usually the busiest time for senior portraits, because most schools require yearbook photos to be submitted by mid-September. For this shoot I met Ben and his mom, Sally, at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood, CO. This is an ideal place for portraits with plenty of open shade (for sun diffusion) and background scenery. We just had to keep our voices down near the putting green!
I always encourage seniors to bring a prop or two with them to our sessions - something that tells us about him/herself, and to add a personal touch to their photos. Ben plays golf and the trombone, so we incorporated both in our shoot and came out with some great photos. Thanks Ben, and good luck in college!
