Longmont Christian School Senior Portrait

Longmont Christian Senior Aaron Rodarte
We understand that life gets busy. We all forget important things, but as the old saying goes: “Better late than never.”

Usually by September and October we’ve wrapped up the senior portrait season. Yearbook deadlines are normally long gone by January, but we were happy to help out Aaron and accomodate the extended deadline given to him by Longmont Christian School. There was no time for error or rescheduling because of cold weather, either. And believe me, it was freezing!

We’ve said it many times over the years that we value the input given by our subjects. So the first question we ask is whether they have a location in mind for their portrait. We want the final images to be representative of who they are, rather than who we think they are. Aaron was quick to come up with his answer. He asked if we would have a problem photographing him at the church where he’s been attending since he was a child. He also asked for a specific image to be made of the cross over his shoulder.

While not a hard image to create per say, we did have to stand in the middle of a street that normally has minimal traffic. All my experience of playing in streets boils down to this –– a quiet street is only quiet until you set out a couple light stands, a subject and a photographer.

We shot quick and luckily I guess we had some help from the big guy upstairs, because no equipment or persons were harmed.
