Cole | Sandy High School

Cole is a championship track star at Sandy High School. He’s also a bit of country boy and has been riding ATV’s since he was 2-years old. He doesn’t live in Sandy, though. Cole and his family live out i Brightwood, Oregon, tucked away in a quiet little spot along the Sandy River. And that’s where Cole decided to take his senior pictures. So we spent a lot of time during his senior portrait session exploring his back yard and buildings around Cole’s home. Cole lives on a rural country road in a small community where everyone knows their neighbors. As a result, we were able to take some of Cole’s senior pictures using a fence and other features on his neighbor’s property. The area has plenty of ferns, trees, and other foliage. And we still had some fall colors, which gave us plenty of background options for Cole’s senior pictures.

Sophie | Sherwood High School

Sophie is a high school senior and a cheerleader at Sherwood High School. But when asked what she likes to do, Sophie is more likely to talk about drawing, listening to music, or hanging out with friends. She describes herself as outgoing and adventurous. She loves to travel (which is high on her to do list after graduation and before heading off to college). And her favorite dish is sushi. Sophie really wanted her high school senior portraits taken in a rural area. She was especially looking for an open field in the background. So, after some searching and discussion, we settled on Powell Butte, a Portland Recreational Park, near Gresham, Oregon

Kian Brookins | Century High School

Century High School senior, Kian, wants to go to college to become a computer programmer. He has big, fiery red hair and soft green eyes. And he’s more than a bit of a book worm. Every spare minute he has, you’ll find himself buried in a good book. When asked about his interests, Kian responds: “reading, reading, board games, reading, video games, and reading.” “I spend 90% of my free time reading,” he says. It’s no surprise that he enjoys quiet and solitude. He also enjoys forested areas with trees, particularly when there’s a nice breeze. So when it came time to decide on a location for Kian’s high school senior portraits, we decided to take his senior pictures at Rood Bridge Park.
