Zach | Portland Adventist Academy

Zach is a high school senior at Portland Adventist Academy and considers himself shy, adventurous, and artistic. So we decided to explore his artistic side by photographing him on a tapestry of colorful graffiti and urban landscapes in Southeast Portland, near downtown. Both of Zach’s parents are photographers, so he’s no stranger to being in front of the camera. And I was honored that he and his parents trusted me to create Zach’s senior portraits.When he’s not rocking his high school senior pictures, Zach enjoys reading, music, rock climbing, snowboarding, and basketball. He’s a fan of progressive metal music and likes to go on surfing trips with his friends.

Sarah | Destination Senior Portraits

Sarah is a snowboarder, so creating senior portraits with Mount Hood standing tall in the background made perfect sense! She said she wanted her senior pictures to have “an image focused on me but with a cool landscape in the background.” Sarah hails from Edgewood High School in Madison, Wiisconsin. But she’s spent three summers now attending snowboard camp at Mount Hood, most recently as a counselor in training.
