A Football Player's Guide to Senior Portraits

Senior year is finally here and you are looking for a way to incorporate your favorite game into the session. Here are some tips to do so!

Jose|Senior Portrait Session|Eureka High

Wow! Is it the middle of March already? Time is flying by this year! I have some senior sessions to catch up and first up is Jose! We did this session back in November. It was a rainy Humboldt County week, so we had to postpone the shoot until later on in the week. We were originally going to do it in Eureka, but opted to do it in the Southern Humboldt area at a great location with a unique basketball court, since Jose wanted basketball incorporated into his senior photos. Did you know Parky's Pics offer a location incentive? Ask about it when inquiring for your senior pictures. : ) 

Andrew-Senior Session-Ferndale High School Football Field

I was on the South Fork High School football field taking some action shots when Andrew's dad approached me about taking Andrew's senior portraits the following year.  I was super excited, because I love senior sports photos. They are my favorite! Flash ahead a year later where we made that happen. We started out on the Ferndale Racetrack located at the Ferndale Fairgrounds, because Andrew has spent a lot of time there watching horse racing as he was growing up. Then we ventured over to the Ferndale Wildcats Football Stadium. His Dad had carefully painted 2018 on the field and we spent some time visiting and getting some different shots.  When I think of the small historic town of Ferndale, two things come to mind. Football and family.  Andrew' s little brother joined us on the shoot, so I of course had to get a couple of the two brothers going head to head on the field. It reminded me of something out of a Friday Night Lights episode.  Than you Andrew and family for letting me capture these milestone moments.
