Late summer and early fall we usually start getting inquiries for high school senior photos, which is about the time we heard from Sara about portraits for her daughter, Danica. She felt this was an important milestone to celebrate with professional photos because of all Danica’s accomplishments. She did so well in high school she is actually skipping her senior year classes to take college courses instead. That is one proud mama who did NOT want generic yearbook photo for her baby girl!

Since the time of year and weather was perfect, we chose Colt State Park for her senior portraits because it offers a variety of backdrops like greenery, water features, and meandering stone walls. If you follow our work, you know Colt State is also one of our favorite locations for engagement sessions for the same reasons!

Gorgeous Afternoon at Goddard Park | High School Senior Portraits

As we hoped, the day of Danica’s senior portrait session was gorgeous! The sun was shining but it wasn’t oppressive, so we were able to stay comfortable while walking around the park. We spent a lot of time by the tall grasses along the shore. The golden hues all around us were the perfect complement to the earthy tones in her outfit and complexion. We captured some great photos, and everyone was happy with the day!

Mom Sara’s favorite portrait is actually the same as ours. It is a candid shot we took of Danica between other photos she was “ready” for; as Sara says “it's a natural pose and very spontaneous!” She ordered a variety of prints to display and pass out to the family; she really appreciated that we are a full service studio and offer printing services, too!
