Heidi's Senior Portraits

I have been looking forward to this shoot since April when I learned that I would get to shoot Heidi's senior portraits. To begin with, I love doing senior portraits. Can't help it, I love teenagers. I think they must be addicting or something. Then the shoot got even better when her mom asked if we could do the photo session in Clam Gulch at their family's salmon fishing set net site. Each summer the entire family camps on the Alaskan beach for the summer to fish the coastal waters for salmon. The place is not only beautiful, but filled with a lifetime of memories for their family. I felt especially honored to get to hang out and camp overnight with them.

And what a memorable shoot it was! We caught a few fun shots as the sun was was going down. Then the next morning, after she has gone out in the boat to set nets, we had some more time to shoot before I joined them in the boats to pick fish out of the nets at low tide. What an adventure!

Thanks, Doners, for the yummy dinner, the fishing adventure and the fun on the beach!

I watched the slide show, and I don't think you could possibly find a better look than a cute little dress and rubber boots on a sunset beach. Stunning pictures, Carrie, and Heidi, you are so hip!
