Nick’s Senior Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

Since Nick moved to Sandpoint a little over a year ago I have had the opportunity to capture images of him out on the football field and the basketball court.  Now in his senior year I was honored to have the opportunity to take his senior photos.  Here are some of the final results.

Nick’s brother was gracious enough to volunteer to help me fine tune my lighting while Nick was preparing for the next series of photos.

To finish  out this post, here is a football themed Senior Poster

Brayden’s Senior Photo (Sandpoint Photographer)

The Sandpoint High School deadline for Senior Photos is only a couple of days away so this week has had it’s share of last minute senior sessions.  Today I went out with Brayden, our goal was to get one particular shot today for the yearbook and then we will do a full blown senior session a bit later in the year.  This one shot needed to incorporate much about Brayden, his cymbals, his didgeridoo and if you know Brayden you know the hat had to be in there somewhere!  We found a great spot, asked the owner if we could borrow their front yard for a quick photos shoot and then we worked the shot until we had it just right.  It was not as easy as you would think, that pesky sun was very bright but with the help of Brayden’s grandmother doing some “Subtractive lighting” for me and a couple of flashes at full power we were able to get the right exposure.   Alright, enough words about the shot, here it is  . . .

Tyler’s Senior Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

Tyler and I arrived at Memorial Field in Sandpoint at the brink of dusk to shoot some dramatic football themed senior photos.  We had to work quickly to be able to get some shots of the victory bell in the background before it became too dark to capture it adequately.

After dark we had the opportunity to do some fun lighting . . .

At the end of our we set up some of my favorite shots of the evening, I put a couple of flashes in the stands to use as a background.  It is very possible that this is the last football season that those stands will be there so years from now I am sure Tyler will look back with fond memories of those stands that have seated thousands of fans for many years.

For the final photo of this post I compiled a Senior Poster mixing together a great shot from our time together and a couple of photos from the last two football seasons.


George’s Senior Photos (Sneak Peek)

I had the pleasure of spending a couple of hours with George on Schweitzer mountain where we went to take his Senior Photos.  I have been trying to get the editing finished, but one thing after another has come up and kept me away from the computer, so to hold George over for a little while longer here is a sneak peek of a couple of the photos I have finished.

Jessica’s Senior Photos

I recently had the opportunity to work with Jessica on her Senior Photos.  She picked out some very fun locations and I had so much fun working with her that I almost wanted to cry when our time was up.  We had a great time and think we ended up with some really nice shots!  Here are Jessica’s favorites:

After our shoot my assistant Shea decided he wanted to take a dip, so Shea and Jessica traded roles for a couple of minutes!

Drew’s Senior Photos

I had a great time recently working with Drew on his Senior Photos.  We had a great location for the photos, I would not have minded a few more clouds in the sky, but other than that we could not have asked for a better day for a photo shoot!

Sneak Peek – Jessica’s Senior Photos

Here is a little teaser of the photos I am working on from yesterday’s Senior Photo session with Jessica.

Marissa and Rhaelyn (Sandpoint Photographer)

A few days ago Marissa joked with me that the wait to see her photos was giving her an anxiety attack, a little sneak peek helped hold her over for a little while.  Now finally her wait is over, the editing is finished and the completed photos will upload tonight!  Here are a few more photos to hold her over until the morning.  You will see that she is not alone, we were also joined by her niece for a few photos as well.  If you want to see some more photos from this shoot see this link.

One more for fun.  Marissa has an interest in photography and she volunteered to help me out whenever my assistant Shea is not available.  So, I figured it would be good to give her a little job interview right on the spot.  Here is her resume, what do you think should I give her the job?

Marissa’s Sneak Peek (Sandpoint Photographer)

This last week I have been blessed with photo shoots at some beautiful locations containing fields of tall wheat stalks that were just begging to make their way into the photographs.  For this shoot with Marissa we not only had great wheat fields but some of them were filled with daisies which of course begged just as much, if not more, than the wheat stalks!   I only have a handful of photos edited from our session, but since Marissa is getting a little anxious I better give her a sneak peek, here you go!

Shea’s Senior Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

I am very blessed to have as an assistant a High School student that loves photography.  He is a very big part of running an efficient and successful photo shoot and is often instrumental in helping me produce great quality photographs.  Yesterday he assisted me in a Senior Photo shoot, but this time not only was he my assistant, he was also the model!  Here are some of my favorite photos from our shoot.
