Well Boo ya! This years grads are all done graduatin’. And what a crazy fun time it was taking photos of all these amazing young people. It’s hard to believe that our kids will one day be wearing the suits and dresses! Another reminder that time truly does fly by far too fast. Anywhos, here’s my quick picks of Oxbow grad shots this year. After a MARATHON editing session today, I got them all done. The kids will have their photos at the start of the week. Just glad the weather cooperated today by being heinously wet and rainy as to dispel any fun things I could have otherwise done. 😀 Also, I invented a new photo this year. I call it “The Smiling Suit.”
Look at this handsome & dashing young man ready to start the world on fire! We had a fast and furious grad shoot, but not with sports cars or Tokyo drift. Instead, we had the venerable Model-T Ford. 😎 And, we got to make an incredible photo with three generations of Hammermeisters alongside the Model-T and their iconic mini grain elevator in the background. There’s a lot of history in these parts and I have been privileged to be part of it for a couple of years. 😀 It was a metric tonne of fun doing this shoot and I wish Logan all the best in his future endeavours. God bless, my friend!
Alexandria ain’t just a town in Egypt. 😉 Another one of my little Lutheran lambs, I’ve known Alex since she was a wee one. It’s amazing to see these kids grow up right before your eyes and become . . . adults!!! It’s crazy. But I guess, given enough time, it happens to all of us. Makes me feel old! 😕 But regardless of my sentiment, we had another great grad shoot. It was done ahead of grad day so we had lots of leisurely time at our disposal. I like that because it means greater opportunity to make even more photos you’d otherwise have to pass up on the fast paced grad day. Josh did a great job as escort too. He gets to add lighting assistant to his resumé. hehheh… All the best to the both of you in post high school life! 😎
Congratulations to all the 2013 Grads! It’s been a long road but what an accomplishment! We had a great grad day here in Oxbow. A bit chaotic to start the day with a massive power failure from 8AM to 3PM but everyone prevailed and looked fantastic. I shot these grad pics of Mariah in advance of Grad, but I didn’t publish any lest I spoil the grand reveal of the dress. 😎 She was up for anything and we had an awesome shoot! We even were able to make it down to the wire and squeeze out what was left of a sunset. 😀 Congrats Mariah, you rocked the set!
