Ryan is a Class of 2012 Senior at Durango High School. He came in for his session last week after school and it was really, really cold outside. Just looking through Ryan’s images to pick my faves made me cold. I had on multiple layers and was wishing for more of them. Ryan was tough and at least made it look like he wasn’t freezing in his portraits. Ryan plays soccer and had held onto his uniform just for his session. We started shooting along the rim up at Fort Lewis College, using the chapel and the mountain backdrop. Then we went up to the Lion’s Den for a better mountain view, as it was very dark further north, where we had originally planned to go. It snowed that night too. We came back to the studio so we could warm up and shoot a few studio portraits. Then we headed back outside for a couple more shots with our favorite peeling paint fence. I hope you love these few of my faves!
