Senior: Class of 2011: Alex

Pin It Life is a series of moments, of learning, of milestones.  One of those milestones that is so exciting, so full of anticipation and promise, is being a Senior in high school!  Some aren't quite sure of their future direction, and some are very sure.  Alex is one of the latter.  He's got his eyes set on the sky, as one day he's going to be a pilot, perhaps a commercial piolot.  He'll be joining the Air National Guard upon graduation, and I could see the excitement and determination in his eyes.  It's so refreshing to hear that he wants to make a difference and go for his dreams.  He has a keen interest in history, flying, fishing, and traveling, as well as tremendous respect for those who serve and have served this great country of ours. So it made perfect sense to incorporate this into his session.  Let's get right to the images!  If you missed Alex's Sneak Peek, you can see it here!

 



Alex totally rocked his Senior Session.  To me, this looks like it came out of a magazine. 


At this particular point in the session, the sun was blazing. And there were several passers-by curious about what was going on...from behind the glass of their air-conditioned vehicles, of course. 
We laughed and said that Alex was not signing any autographs at this time, 
since he was busy working it out for the camera. It's so true! 


Alex has a deep appreciation for the artistry and craftsmanship of the Monument. 






I really think that Alex could be a model if he wanted to...he's got the "Blue Steel" look down!
(Sidenote: If you want to see a funny movie all about "Blue Steel" and modeling, 
be sure to check out Zoolander with Ben Stiller!) 
Seriously though, not everyone can pull off a serious look, and Alex nailed it.



Another favorite!


Ok, yes, another favorite.  It's so hard to decide!



I had so many favorites from Alex's Senior Session...especially these next two!
The light during our session was a cool mix of sweet, bright, and soft, which gave us so 
many great looks.  Couldn't have asked for a better day!








Before our session, I had asked Alex what words best describe him: Quiet, Leader, Mysterious.
I think the following two images are so telling of his words.  One word I would add: Determined.


Alex, I wish you all the best during your Senior year!  
I hope you enjoy every moment, and I know you are destined for a bright, rewarding future!  
Good luck!

The city made a perfect backdrop for his photos - and yes, he does look a lot like a model in a lot of these! Good job, Alex!
