Senior Photo Session: Patrick

January 04, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

008008 Hi everyone! I haven't been very consistent about blogging recently and, to be honest, I haven't been doing much portrait photography either. Capturing people's personalities is still something very near and dear to my heart but I have SO many other things going on in my life, it's been hard to make time for it all. 

Despite not promoting my business much, I received quite a few portrait photo session requests late last year which was a blessing and a curse. It was a curse because I work for the ballet and The Nutcracker season is nothing short of utter and total chaos. It's a blessing because I get to visit with people like this amazing young man and his family. 

Patrick's aunt was one of my closest friends in middle and high school. She was one of my bridesmaids and even though she lives three hours away, we've managed to stay in touch over the years. I actually remember when Patrick was born and how excited his aunt was to have a wee little nephew! 

Well Patrick is all grown up and getting ready to head to college (don't cry Kylie, don't cry). I couldn't believe it when I saw this tall, handsome man step out of their car in Eugene! WHERE DID THE YEARS GO? 

Anyway, Patrick and his family were in town to check out the University of Oregon campus and decided to get his senior photos done at the same time. We went to one of my favorite spots near the river but it happened to be a particularly cold day so we didn't have a ton of time. Luckily, Patrick was totally at ease in front of the camera and had great style and energy. I had so much fun capturing his personality and hearing about his big plans for the future. Recently, I learned that Patrick was accepted to the University of Oregon and will be starting school next fall! 

Even though I haven't been around in the photography world as much, even though I have been insanely busy and fitting it all in can be challenging, I'm so thankful for the moments when everything comes full circle. Congrats Patrick! Remember, no matter how old you get, you're never too old to go down the slides on the playground.
