One of the greatest joys I have as an Orange County Photographer is being blessed with the opportunity to shoot senior pictures. I live in a community that has about 8 high schools all within a 10 mile radius. As I have grown over the years and I look back to my own graduation from Esperanza in 2006 I realize so much has changed not only in my life but this world. When I shoot senior portraits, I find myself filled with pride and anticipation. I am proud to see yet another young man or woman accomplish a great feat in their life and education. The reality is high school can be some trying times and I wish I could say everyone makes it to graduation day but we know it’s not true.
Yet I find myself also joyfully filled with anticipation. When you look through these pictures you may just see a young man that’s closing on chapter to open another. For me, I see a young man with great potential. When I first got into photography about 5 years ago I had the pleasure of taking Brandon’s brother Evan’s pictures. In the past four years I have seen Evan grow in so many ways but I have also see his brother Brandon grow and mature. Brandon went through high school with a passion for baseball and maturity that stands out among his peers. Not only has Brandon become a fine pitcher at Canyon high school, I have no doubt he has been an outstanding friend to those he’s met over the years. As Brandon prepares to go to college, I know he has great potential both as he continues to play baseball and as he contributes to society. I wish you the best Brandon!
