Drake, Fountain-Fort Carson High School | Downtown Colorado Springs and Garden of the Gods Senior Photography

September 9, 2013

Meet Drake! Drake is a very special high school senior from Fountain-Fort Carson High School. I’ve had the pleasure of being the Dunn family’s preferred photographer the last couple of years, which is totally awesome. I’m so excited to share Drake’s senior portraits, for a couple of reasons. First of all – Drake is an AMAZING kid. I’ve seen so many amazing and positive things happen over the last couple of years, and I know that senior year is going to be outstanding. It is just the beginning of what I know will be an amazing future; which brings me to the second reason :: after high school, I know Drake is going to go the distance, with a very bright future in the military as a leader. Just this week, Drake began the interviewing process with the three military academies and with any luck, the Naval Academy, West Point or the Air Force Academy will have an amazing new recruit and future officer coming their way next fall.

This session was done in downtown Colorado Springs, as well as Garden of the Gods. We had so much fun doing this shoot, and I’d also like to take a second to wish Drake a very, very happy 18th birthday! xoxo

    Love senior portrait sessions. My favorite is the last one with the flash illuminating him from behind.

  7. Gorgeous photos! I love the one where he’s wearing the red shirt – they just “pop”!
