Senior photo shoot at Luther Burbank Park in Mercer Island

As a wedding and senior portrait photographer, I get the privilege of capturing significant milestones in people’s lives. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing Claire, a senior from Bellevue High School, at Luther Burbank Park in Mercer Island.

Claire is an exceptional student and athlete. As an all-state basketball player, she’s earned a college basketball scholarship—a testament to her hard work and dedication. She decided to commemorate her senior year with a portrait session, and I was honored to capture these memories for her.

When we first met at the park, Claire was a bit shy and reserved. This is completely normal for many of my clients, especially when they’re not used to being in front of the camera. But as we explored the scenic spots in Luther Burbank Park, Claire’s confidence blossomed.

Luther Burbank Park offers a beautiful backdrop with its lush greenery, waterfront docks, and charming pathways. You would never know that you’re in the middle of the city. We started the session on the waterfront docks, where the gentle waves and golden sunlight created a perfect setting. Claire’s smile became more relaxed and genuine with each shot.

Next, we moved to a more wooded area of the park, which added a different feel to the photos. Claire’s natural athleticism came through as she effortlessly moved from pose to pose. By the end of our session, her initial shyness had completely vanished, revealing her vibrant personality and confident demeanor.

Why You Should Consider Senior Portraits

If you’re a high school senior, this is a significant chapter in your life. You’ve worked hard, achieved milestones, and are on the brink of new adventures. Senior portraits are a wonderful way to celebrate and remember this special time.

Here’s why you should consider a senior portrait session:

  1. Capture Your Achievements: Like Claire, you’ve likely accomplished a lot during your high school years. Whether it’s sports, academics, or other activities, your senior portraits can highlight what’s meaningful to you.
  2. Express Yourself: Senior portraits are all about showcasing your personality. Whether you’re shy or outgoing, we can create a session that feels authentic to you.
  3. Create Lasting Memories: These photos will serve as a lasting reminder of your high school years. They’re not just for you, but also for your family and friends who’ve supported you along the way.
  4. Professional Quality: A professional photographer can ensure you get high-quality images that you’ll be proud to share and display.

At Luther Burbank Park, Claire’s session was a perfect example of how a beautiful location and a relaxed atmosphere can make for stunning senior portraits. If you’re considering a session, I’d love to help you capture this exciting time in your life.

Remember, senior year is a milestone worth celebrating. Let’s create something special together.
