Wilsonville High School’s Justin Meeker loves gaming, working out, listening to music, and playing soccer. After graduation, Justin is looking forward to spending some time camping and hiking in the wilderness with friends.
He and his mom were really interested in having a mix of natural and urban looking his high school senior portraits and they wanted to take advantage of what might be left of the changing fall colors.
Being from Wilsonville, I quickly suggested that they consider Wilsonville’s Willamette River Water Treatment Plant. It might seem odd to have your senior pictures taken at a waste water treatment plant, but the plant has been transformed into a beautiful park that includes a stream, waterfalls, brick walls and more.
One of the features I love about this park is the ivy that has covered one of the brick walls. It turns bright red in the fall of the year and makes a great backdrop for high school senior pictures.
Once we finished up at the wastewater treatment plant, we headed down the street a few blocks to Graham Oaks Nature Park, also in Wilsonville. There, we found a patch of trees that were just past the peak of their fall colors.
As a professional high school senior portrait photographer, I can turn just about any location into a great setting for a senior picture. The important thing is to find a location that is meaningful to you and tells a story about who you are.
