I enjoyed Chris very much. He’s your typical senior. He enjoys spending time with his friends and playing sports. He has a well decorated letter jacket as he has lettered in countless sports and clubs. But what I heard Chris talk about most, and what brought genuine smiles to his face, was talking about his time as a Boy Scout. In fact, Chris has earned the title of Eagle Scout. This is the highest achievement attainable in the Boy Scouts and you can see the pride in his face when he talks about his accomplishments. Chris’ mom has been his troop leader throughout his time there. It’s a journey they’ve had together. As a mom, I can only imagine the memories they’ve made along the way. I’m sure a bittersweet end reflecting back on all the trips, service projects, and accomplishments he’s made over the years.
For Chris’ senior portraits it was important for Chris to be in his scout uniform. I thought it was only fitting to include mom as well since this has been their journey together.
For the second half of his session, Chris’ brother and dad joined us at Silverwood Park in St. Anthony. What a great location full of mature oak trees, tall grasses, and Silver Lake for a backdrop. This was a great spot to let Chris and his brother be just that….brothers. Growing up, I didn’t have siblings, and I love watching siblings together. I love how brothers show genuine love by placing each other in a headlock style hug. Who knew!
Chris has a great foundation that has been laid for him. He will do well in whatever his future holds.
Congratulations on your senior year Chris!
