Looking back at pictures of me in high school is more than amusing. I went through my triangle-hair-stage, the huge- (I mean HUGE) glasses- stage, the braces-which-pulled-my-teeth-to-have-a-big-gap-stage, the poofy-back-combed-bangs-look-stage, the neon-and-spandex-stage. Honestly, those pictures are not for the faint of heart.

I think that I pulled it together a little more by my last year in high school but my senior pictures were the standard "wear a gown and hold the tired silk roses" look. How much more fun it is to have some senior portraits that actually reflect your look and personality.

I totally enjoyed the sessions I did with Erik and Stephanie in Sumner on the cool Main Street there. They were fun and confident and a breeze to work with. I had a blast walking around with them (and their parents), finding cool places to try a shot....lots of great textures and architectural variety in a place like that.

First I will show you some of my favorites of Erik.

I knew he would be fun when he was game, right off the bat, to hop on a dumpster for a shot. Not a career in garbage duty for this guy, I have no doubt. He is sharp and has a great part time job already.

We started out at that bridge by the Cannery.

Great style, I must say. Pretty girlfriend helping with that.

Totally outgoing.

Then we headed down to the train tracks, and one of the moms was put on the lookout when we got in a few fun shots.

We walked the street and found some cool places. One of the great things about a place like that, is that there are all kinds of pockets of beautiful lighting in doorways and in between buildings.

Love his reflection in the window.

At the end he quickly put on his hat (unapproved by the female presence), and jumped on his vehicle for a picture of him on his wheels. Erik, you rock.

Now on to Stephanie's pictures. What a doll this girl is...hoping to head into pediatric care and even volunteering with kids now. She has a real heart.

What a gorgeous girl. No worries about the train here....surely it would come to an abrupt halt if it rolled in and a girl like this was on the tracks.

Love the stop sign reflection.

The florist on the street was closing up shop, but kindly let us use a bouquet of flowers for the next shot.

Grad '10!!!!! Of course, Stephanie will not be a solicitor when she graduates next year.
