Matt’s off to College!! {Seattle Prep Senior Photographer}

Matt graduated with the Class of 2016 from Seattle Prep.
He didn’t do an “official” Senior portrait session prior to his actual graduation…so, we literally squeezed one in just 4 days before he packed up and jumped on a plane to Michigan. He will begin college at the University of Michigan this month! Such an exciting adventure for him. We met up at his house for his session and it was the perfect setting. He lives on Lake Washington in an absolutely gorgeous home.

When I arrived, his mom, Maureen asked me how I felt about heights. I responded that I was pretty good with them, but of course that made me curious as to why! She said they were hoping to do a few shots of Matt from their roof since it has such great views of Seattle. So, of course, the adventurer in me got immediately excited for that!!

Matt has such a great demeanor about him. He’s a natural in front of the camera and was willing to listen to all my silly directions. I love it when I ask a client to give me their best “serious” face and they struggle and crack smiles. Because I am the same way. When someone says “be serious”, I immediately feel the urge to laugh and smile. 🙂 But, he conquered the task at hand! He’s got a great sense of humor. For the last few shots of the night, we headed down on his dock to capture the last few bits of golden light. I had Matt sit on a chair and neither of us realized it was actually broken. So, he literally was inches away from falling completely into the water in his suit!  It gave us both a good laugh. I told him he had way quicker reflexes and better coordination than me. Had I sat on the chair, I would have been in the lake head first with all my camera gear! Thankfully we all managed to stay dry and get the shots!

Thank you guys so much for welcoming me into your home to document this milestone.

Matt ~ All the best to you as you begin this new chapter in your life. I am sure you will do just fantastic!
