Just as much as engagements, I adore senior shoots and wish I had the opportunity to shoot them more often. It is so much fun getting to know our future leaders, scientists, engineers, veterinarians, and artists. For me, I love working with seniors (and all other grades in high school) every opportunity I have. We all remember how amazing your zest for life is knowing that the world ahead of you is in the palm of your hand.
In just a few short months I will be capturing the wedding day of Rebekah and Jack. Rebekah’s adorable mom Katrina had booked me for her daughter’s special day. A few weeks ago she reached out to me about capturing her son Trenton’s senior portraits to document the milestone and I couldn’t wait for the opportunity!
Trenton Adkins is very straightforward on what he loves most, which are his faith, his girlfriend, and of course his Ford F-150 pickup truck. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend Erin and being the sound guy at Emmaus Church.
Trenton has an incredibly bright future ahead. Currently a senior at West Orange High School, he plans on furthering his education as a sound engineer or electrical contractor. Both of which are perfect, as he loves working with his hands.
When planning out our shoot, I wanted to make it personal to Trenton so that when he looked back on the images things he loved would stand out and take him back to that time. With being “flo grown” in mind, we aimed for an outdoor, Florida shoot among the orange groves and clay roads common to our state. Trenton helped me out with perfectly placing his truck on the roads at an angle and moving about for photos. Check out that shine job on the tires – seriously I need to step it up with my old Jeep Cherokee haha!
After spending some time on the clay roads, we headed into the grove for photos of just Trenton among the trees followed by a handful of pictures with his sweetheart Erin. Our session ended with casual shots of Trenton in his favorite Guy Harvey t-shirt, old but very loved boots, and jeans while sitting up on his truck – the very essence of Trenton’s style.
Looking forward to working with more seniors in the future! Check back soon for portraits of Erin coming up!
