What a seriously fun day we had with Alexis. They came up from the USA for this shoot and we were all really looking forward to it. You could not have asked for a better day, with all the colours of the leafs in their fall colours.
We met in Stonewall at the Quarry and discussed some ideas of how they wanted the shoot to go. They has a few ideas, but were really up for anything. The goal was to get some great photos of Alexis. She asked if she could do a few dress changes as well, and I said of course, we can do them all, and we did.
Her mom and step mom who are amazing friends sat back and relaxed and had a great time with the shoot as well. A few times Alexis and I would take off, get some cool photos, then come back and show the moms and watch them yell ‘oh my God! those are amazing”. It was so much fun and we were all having a great time hanging out together.
I wanted to get a few of the “Superhero” look photos for her as well to show off the strong and confident person she is, plus she kind of looks like Wonder Woman. They were all blown away, and that was the first thing Carmen and Lisa said, “OMG you look like Wonder Woman.”
I was able to get them edited fairly quickly for them as it is for her high school grad after all, plus I don’t like making my couples, clients, etc wait for their images, that is why 18 hour work days are pretty much the norm.
A few months after she got her images, I was coming back from the USA and stopped by the town she is from. I was paying for gas and used my card. The person who I paid, said, you’re not Chris Jensen the Photographer are you? I said I was. She freaked out and said “The entire town is talking about Alexis’ photos.” She kinda made my day!
Thank you again for such a great day! And congratulations Alexis on your graduation.
