As he was finishing his junior year at Cary Academy, Caleb N (Class of 2017) was already looking forward to his senior year. He knew My Friend Teresa Studios had done portraits for his family before and at his prom, so he contacted us for Cary senior portrait.

Cary Senior Portrait Caleb Class of 2017

In late May, Teresa met with Caleb and his mom Suzanne in our studio. She learned that Caleb loves robotics, and is the driver for his robotics team at Cary Academy. He is already planning a career in electrical engineering. His summer plans include an internship at Duke with the Genome Science Research Center. For his senior portraits, he was looking for brick structures with sharp lines to match his technology interests. He considered Durham’s American Tobacco Campus, but settled on Raleigh’s warehouse district. They set a mid-June date. About a week before his shoot he confirmed that he was able to ‘borrow’ Staci….one of the robots he worked on at Cary Academy….for his shoot. Mom took out seats in her car and an epic shoot was in the works!

Teresa met Caleb, Suzanne (and Staci, the robot) on a warm evening with rain threatening. But the skies cleared and perfect cool weather made for a great shoot. Pulling a 5 foot 60 pound robot across the road in the middle of downtown Raleigh was hilarious! Caleb was not even deterred by a trolley pub rolling by. The weathered brick and sharp lines made the perfect backdrop for his shoot. He looked right at home…..posing with Staci, or leaning against the warehouse door.

A few weeks later, Caleb and Suzanne, met Teresa at the studio to view the portraits.  The first introduction to the portraits was a beautiful video montage of all of the portraits; then they viewed them on the gallery wall.  Caleb chose his favorites for his yearbook.  Suzanne loved the ‘triptych’ style art piece and chose her favorite three portraits for this beautiful framed piece.  They also chose some museum quality prints for family and friends.   They just couldn’t part with all of the portraits, so they got the full digital collection so they could print and enjoy for years to come.

What an epic shoot – robot and all!
