Jon is a Class of 2012 senior at Durango High School and he came in for his session one week ago today. He also came in for a morning session, so we got to use that great morning light again and some places that we don’t get to photograph in often because the sun is in the wrong place in the afternoon/evenings. I had the opportunity to photograph Jon’s sister, Jessica, for her senior portraits last year. To check out her sneak preview from last year, Click on Durango Senior Photographer Jessica’s DHS Senior Portraits. Jon brought great clothing choices and they ended up being perfect for everywhere we went to take pictures. We started in the parking lot of the new Mountain Middle School because they have an outbuilding with rusted aluminum sides that I love to use. Then we headed across the street to the Animas Museum, where they also have a couple of small buildings with great looks. Peeling paint, rustic barn wood – you name it, it was there. We actually finished this session in record time because there was almost no travel time! We did run over to a favorite staircase of mine along the river and then back to the studio so we could use some of or new backgrounds. Don’t you just love the texture of the one we used for Jon? He has such a great smile – and a great serious face too! He made it too easy for me – everything he did looked great. Hope you love these few of my faves!
