Nico is a Class of 2011 Senior at Durango High School. He came in for his senior portrait session 2 days before the yearbook deadline – and he wasn’t even the last senior I photographed before the deadline! Students are so busy these days, it can be hard to get in at all for a session, not to mention get in early. I had worked with Nico’s family last year, photographing his sister, Alexandra, for her senior portraits. I was very excited to work with them again – I love this family! We started in the studio, then they let me pile in their truck with them (as I remembered during Nico’s session that my license had just expired and I said out loud without thinking it through, I don’t have a valid driver’s license)! So, we headed over to the river, then a rusted aluminum wall I love, then a staircase in front of the Animas Museum. While I had Nico posing on the stairs, we were told the fee to use the property for portraits was that Nico had to go to work for them – oops! It was a great session and I hope you love these few of my faves!
