Connor Smith: Senior 2014

It wasn’t long ago I was a senior in high school. Yeah just kidding it was years ago, but I still remember the excitement of my parents, the pressure with finding a school and the realization of a new beginning that became a never-ending thought during my last year of high school. It’s amazing to kind of relive those memories while they resurface just through conversation during a senior session.

Meet Connor. He is a senior as you might have guessed and a pretty amazing kid/young adult. Connor is not only conquering the athletic world with his baseball skillz, but also makes time for basketball, cross-country, a girl friend and family.

I had the privilege of meeting his entire family and his girlfriend during our session. They. Are. Awesome. There’s something about a session with a lot of people that makes the atmosphere, as cheesy as it sounds, fun, but the creativity also elevates.  Connor’s mom, Michelle, was amazing. Instead of having to break into the high school baseball field complex and ask for forgiveness later (sort of kidding), she got permission and keys to the field along with the high school gym a week or so in advance. His dad, Scott, also came through by becoming my assistant for a portion of the session and figuring out how to turn on the stadium lights. His younger brother was just awesome because he brought a remote control truck to play with while his brother got the attention, but turned on his smile, which he practiced a few days before, when it was his turn to get in some shots. Lacey, his girlfriend, was incredibly kind and full of compliments and I applaud her for helping with his outfit changes!

Below are a few shots from the day. He Rocked it.
