When we lived in the US, I had the opportunity to photograph some wonderful high school seniors.  When a student graduates from high school there, it’s understood that grad portraits are more than just a quick cap-and-gown shot, but rather include on location shoots with settings, outfit changes and props that tell about who the grad is and what he or she loves.  Upon moving back to Canada, I’ve noticed that this doesn’t seem to be the case as much.  Grads are more than just a cap and gown, and I miss seeing senior pictures that celebrate the individuality of the student in them.  That’s why this session was so refreshing.  From this grad’s clothing choices to his rugby ball showing his favorite sport, these pictures are all about him and his personality. I’m looking forward to doing some more sessions like this one!
