One year ago, I had the pleasure of shooting an Auburn Senior, Scott.... A few weeks ago I got a chance to do a session with another Auburn Senior.... Scott's brother, Chris.
We spent Scott's session in a park setting in Auburn, this time, we tried something different for Chris. We headed to down town Tacoma. I love Tacoma... it has such a bad rap, but it is a really great town! I love all of the different types of photos you can take down town in a matter of minutes.
We started Chris in an alley. I could not get enough of the old doorways, peeling paint, rust,etc. It was perfect.
These shots are some of my favorites. I asked Chris' mom to do something to make him laugh when I was not looking. Oh, man.... did it ever work perfectly. If you know his mom, you can go ahead and ask her what she did, I will leave that up to her discretion! All I have to say is Chris is probably still recovering from that! LOL!!
From the alley, we headed to the University of Washington-Tacoma campus... Now we have some shots that have a cleaner and more crisp feel...
Chris' grandfather passed away a few years ago, and we were thrilled to think of him during this shoot when we got these GREAT train images. His grandpa loved trains, and I think he would have liked these images too!
Chris... you were a great sport! Thank you for being willing to try anything!
Best of luck to you, and Happy Graduation!
