Spencer (Cary High School Class of 2020) was enjoying the summer before his senior year. His school required that he have his senior portraits made at a large commercial studio, but Spencer and his family also wanted portraits that really reflected who Spencer is. They reached out to us and we got started!
Senior Portraits Cary: Motorbike Trails and a Field of Dreams
Spencer and his mom came to our studio for a senior portraits Cary planning meeting. Spencer loves motorsports and you can often find him riding a dirt bike. His mom says he is a bit of an adrenaline junkie. He plays baseball, and ran a marathon last year. In school he loves engineering, math, and science.
For his senior portraits Cary, he wanted something a little ‘out there’. He also loves the Fonz from “Happy Days”. We had so many creative ideas it was hard to narrow them down!
We met Spencer for his first senior portraits Cary session at The Burger Shop in Wake Forest. We started at this throw back diner where the staff was all too proud to make a camera-worthy milkshake and hamburger.
Spencer looked especially awesome in his suit under a nearby tunnel, where we patiently waited for cars to cross at exactly the right moment to get a good photograph – although they kept stopping thinking they were ruining the shot. We actually needed them to drive by! Spencer’s mom made our day when she brought out some vintage soda for us all to enjoy.
Our second session was for Spencer with his motorbike. We met at a cool motorbike repair shop that gave us permission to use their wall, and a family friend who let us use their trails. Especially cool was the dry river bed which is usually home to lots of beavers. It was dry and we could put his motorbike down in there for an extra cool perspective. We laughed at all the beaver prints that were in the mud (and Justin might have taken a tumble in the slippery mud). Spencer brought two of his good friends, and football players to help navigate the heavy bike in and out of the woods. Special thanks for the Duck Donuts that fueled us for our session.
For our final session, we met Spencer at our private farm. Farmer Bob had put a ‘field of dreams’ sign in front of his corn maze making the perfect All American baseball background without being in a literal baseball field. We even used our colorful powder to add a little something extra. Spencer and his mom had a hilarious impromptu colored powder fight, weaving in and out of the cornstalks for cover.
Spencer and his family returned to our studio a few weeks later. They loved the portraits and video, and selected their favorite 10 images for digital files. Teresa helped them select the perfect image for a canvas for their home.
We enjoyed meeting Spencer and being part of his adventurous senior year!
