Montrose Redhawks Senior

August has been a whirl wind of Senior sessions and starting school and end of summer activities. It’s been a lot of fun! Seniors sessions are some of my favorite sessions because we get to do some really fun things. I get to immerse myself into their world and see what they are all about.

This is Sandra. Sandra is a Senior and Montrose High School this year and is on the Volleyball team. When Sandra contacted me about photos, she pretty much knew what she wanted. We found the perfect location and headed to Ridgway. There are a lot of options in this little mountain town and it was the perfect place to start.

One thing that surprised me was that Sandra didn’t tell me that she had scheduled her session on her birthday! I send all of my clients a questionnaire to get to know them a little better, and on the form I ask for a birthday. So once I found out her session date was her birthday, we had to add some birthday fun to her Senior session! She turned 17 so we had to have some balloons!


We then went to Ridgway State Park and it’s so beautiful. The lighting was great, the weather was nice, and we even splashed around in the river a little…trying to avoid the fishermen. The water was “SO COLD!” And that made for some great laughing photos! Some of my favorites to be sure!

Sandra, thanks for spending your birthday with me this year. I had so much fun getting to know you. You are a beautiful person. Don’t ever let anything dim your joy! I can’t wait to see the rest of your story as it’s written.
