Lakeridge High School senior, Max. had a confession: “My mom wants me to get senior pictures so she can remember what I look like when I go to college.”

They both like GQ poses, and wanted to find some backgrounds for Max’s high school senior portraits that featured some “interesting textural elements.”

And so after our initial phone consultation, where we talked a lot about clothing choices and other options, we decided on a mix of locations that satisfied their desire for both an urban and outdoor feel for Max’s senio portrait session.

We started in downtown historic Gresham, Oregon where we took advantage of the variety of urban textures from rock walls to concrete structure to chainlink fences.

And then we headed to nearby McMenamin’s Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon where we captured Max in a more natural setting.

Max describes himeself as outgooing and curious. He enjoys relaxing, reading, watching movies, playing video games, watching football/basketball, working out, shooting hoops, hanging out with friends, skiing, and painting.

He’s a fan of hip-hop and rap, likes the song “Antidote”, and he once saw a shark while snorkeling.
