Saavan S. was enjoying the spring of his junior year when he got information from his school about senior portraits.  His mom reached out to us for information and scheduled a senior portraits Cary planning meeting.

Senior Portraits Cary:  Tennis and Sax

Saavan and his mom came to our downtown Cary studio for his planning meeting with Teresa.  We learned that he loves tennis and is on the Cary Academy (Class of 2020) tennis team.  He plays the alto sax for jazz band and is an Eagle Scout.  In school his favorites are history and math.  His family loves travel and made an epic volunteer trip to Africa a few years ago.

For his senior portraits Cary, he wanted an urban colorful vibe.  He definitely wanted to include tennis, his sax, and some outdoor portraits.  With so much variety our creative team planned a series of three senior portraits Cary session dates.

We met Saavan at our studio for some classic portraits of him with his Alto Sax.  The lighting was perfect!

We also went to a campsite at Jordan Lake, and to downtown Raleigh.  We managed to avoid rain all night.  (It rained every time we were in the car between locations).  Our assistant Will had set up a campfire for us when we arrived at Jordan Lake, and it was all-hands-on-deck to get the smoke going in the right direction for the photographs.  We ended the evening in downtown Raleigh where the clouds made for perfect lighting and a cool end of a very hot day.

There were also some traditional portraits at his tennis club, and an epic session on our private wet set.  Saavan really enjoyed practicing his form by hitting water balloons.  He said it was really fun and felt like summer camp.  His grandmother was visiting and was able to see this part of his session.  She thought it was really interesting.

The behind-the-scenes video shows it all:

Saavan and his family returned to our studio a few weeks later.  They chose some prints and a keepsake album.  Saavan selected his yearbook photos which we submitted on his behalf.

We enjoyed meeting Saavan and capturing part of his memorable senior year!
