Patrick is my featured Senior of the week! Due to my recent surgery, I am running late with all my featured seniors that I wanted to fit in before graduation. As it is, I will be running behind a bit, and my have featured seniors up until the end of the month versus the time of their graduation. Having said all that, here we go! Patrick is child number two of five kids in the family. I photographed his big sister for her senior pictures back in 2011…yes, I am feeling old! I have also had the pleasure of photographing his entire family, new born pictures of his younger siblings, and the list can go on. As a result, I wanted to be sure I did something for Patrick that was special and really portrayed something that he loves to do. Of course, it was an image of him playing his favorite video game. I do not recall the name of it at this moment, but it had a lot of bright green colors and a lot of killing bad guys, or aliens, or??? Either way, I love the end product. We actually shot the image in my basement with the big screen tv, and his friend holding some lights, and my son holding a blanket to block some light. I have to admit, it was pretty funny as I look back at it, but again, am so pleased with the end result.
Here is what his mom had to say about him and what he is wanting to do with his life…
Patrick wants to attend The Art Institute of Colorado, he plans to emphasize host study on video and film.
Patrick loves gaming, editing short videos, working out in the gym lifting weights and spending time with friends.
He LOVES technology, family, food and laughing. He loves anything fun really.
Congratulations on graduating with the class of 2018, Ralston Valley High School!!!
