Emily – ERHS Class of 2019

Hey Emily…this was fun!

Our next Class of 2019 focus senior send off is someone who loves theater, flowers, and Taylor Swift. Please welcome the darling and personable Emily of East Ridge High School to the blog!

 

Emily and her mom joined me at the Little Log Pioneer Village in Hastings for a very fun session in Sylvia’s Gardens. Can you believe how much we accomplished in just 90 minutes?! That gorgeous smile. And I STILL say she reminds me of a young Gena Davis. Am I right??

Best wishes to you, Emily, as you close out these last few months of District 833 education. It was a treat to see you perform in the ERHS’s production of Les Miserables this past year.  Thank you for having me be a part of this fun milestone. I enjoyed getting to know you and your mom! ~ S

I’ll wrap up Emily’s senior send off with some girl power words for this self-proclaimed MN Swiftie. And when you make it big, I think the black and whites above would make  great cover art for your first album ?…

“But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop grooving. It’s like I got this music in my mind saying it’s gonna be alright”

– Taylor Swift

The one and only…..You!

Adam – ERHS Class of 2019

Hey Adam…it’s not that cold…oh wait!

Time for Adam’s Class of 2019 focus senior send off. This handsome East Ridge High School senior enjoys aviation and music and taking senior pictures in the snow. (I may have added that last part, but he was a trooper and we got MOST of our work done before the snow flurries just got to be too much!)

 

Adam…I hope you soar!

 

It thought it was super cool that, in addition to the trombone, Adam is into aviation and so we worked with the Lake Elmo Airport to find some airframes that he has particular interest in and had fun checking them out. I only wished I had learned sooner about his awesome socks. Guy after my own heart with that whimsical touch!

 

When the snow flurries and cold got to be a little too much, we decided to finish our session another day which turned out to be a sunny, warm (looking) morning a few days later. Thank you, Adam, for letting me be a part of your memorable senior portraits experience! 

Good luck to you, Adam!

All the best to you as you close in on these last few months of District 833 education. I look forward to hearing what you’ll be up to next!

Reece – ERHS Class of 2019

Hey Reece…here we go!

Reece is up next for a Class of 2019 focus senior send off. This handsome East Ridge High School senior enjoys golf and taking lots of pictures (I may have added that last part, but he was very patient with me and I DID warn him ahead of time – ha!)

 I enjoyed hanging out with Reece and his mom in and around Hudson on a really nice summer afternoon. Mom has the best laugh…I couldn’t help smiling myself when I was clicking the shutter. I think Reece and I have a similar sense of humor. I’m glad he felt confident enough to give me a “solid no” on a couple of suggested poses or locations….even though I don’t know why a handsome young man wouldn’t want his senior pictures taken by a creepy clown mural. ??‍♀️ You have to be comfortable in your poses or it will come through in the results!

Good luck to you, Reece!

All the best to you as you close in on these last few months of District 833 education. I look forward to hearing what you’ll be up to next!

Molly – ERHS Class of 2019

Hey Molly…this was fun!

Our next Class of 2019 focus senior send off is someone who I’m very happy to have met from East Ridge High School. Please welcome the lovely and personable Molly to the blog!

 

Molly and her mom were such a pleasure to spend time with in the Como Park area this past summer. I loved that she wanted to capture several things that have been special to her during her high school years including her time with orchestra and playing softball. Even her jewelry was subtle, but meaningful to her and I thought that was especially awesome.

A second inning…

We planned ahead of time to do a split senior session in order to get both sunlit fields as well as some time on her East Ridge High School ball fields.

Hey Molly…let’s boomerang!

I’ve said it many times before, but having fun is pretty much the key to successful senior pictures in my opinion. Thanks, Molly, for having fun with me and I sure hope that the remaining few months of your high school days are the most fun ever.

Drew – ERHS Class of 2019

Hey Drew…let’s do this!

Our next Class of 2019 Senior Send Off is, again, someone who grew up right in front of my eyes. Just 13 years ago, he was walking down our street to the bus top, heading to kindergarten. Please say hello to Drew from East Ridge High School!

Drew and his mom joined me for a tour around the Union Depot/Harriet Island side of St. Paul on a very warm summer day. The architectural things you can find in that area of the twin cities is awesome. I enjoyed catching up with them. It is so fun for me when senior boys are sweet with their mamas and we grab some laughter along the way.

 
When I think of Drew, I think “confident, friendly, athlete”. Always kind to the neighborhood kids, always playing hockey or basketball or baseball in the street & driveways. Thank you, Drew, for a fun afternoon and for setting a good example to those around you. 

Best wishes to you…Drew
