Life has a funny way of working everything out. That’s what I’ve learned over the years of photographing. For example, Kathy contacted me to photograph her son’s senior pictures at Marquette’s Redmen stadium. She wanted Richard to have pictures on the field and in the bleachers, but when we arrived that day everything was locked up. Honestly, it worked out better because we LOVED photographing Richard from the top of a hill overlooking the football field. We think it was meant to be that way.
Also, the day that we originally had scheduled was set for rain, so we bumped up his session a day earlier and were treated to the most beautiful weather! We especially loved how quiet it was down at Founder’s landing in Marquette in the morning. That’s where we starting Richard’s senior portrait session. With views of the lake, ore dock, and beautiful trees in the background. A quick outfit change later Richard also brought along his guitar for the pictures. We walked to some nearby rock walls to use as a backdrop as Richard strummed his guitar and talked to us about his senior year.
Next it was onto the Marquette High School for the stadium pictures. Although we weren’t able to get access to the field we loved photographing Richard from the top. He brought along his football jersey, helmet, football, and letter jacket for us to photograph him with. We are so grateful he did because they were wonderful additions to his senior portraits.
Huge thanks again to Kathy and her son Richard for being so flexible and wonderful to work with. It was a great day! Enjoy.
We will never, ever, ever get sick of photographing at this location. SO EPIC!!
It was fun to listen to Richard play his guitar that morning.
