Judah Christian

Connor | Judah Christian senior fall photos

Connor is a senior basketball player at Judah Christian School in Champaign, and he is a fashion fanatic. When he mentioned his shoe collection in his questionnaire 3 times, I knew the shoes were going to be a big part of the shoot! His mom offered to carry them all in from the car, which was no easy task! Connor works hard for his shoes that and has earned the money to pay for nearly all of them himself.

He also has a couple of music artists that he follows closely, and so the images on the white wall are an homage to those talents. When he’s not shopping for shoes, Connor likes to attend concerts with his family and friends.

The last part of our shoot we were aiming to bring in the fall theme, so we went to Crystal Lake Park where the trees were just starting to turn. It was a gorgeous fall day, and we lucked out with a bit of sunshine.

Best of luck with the rest of your senior year at Judah and the basketball season, Connor!

Aniyah | Judah Christian High School senior cheerleader

Aniyah needed a quick turnaround on her senior pics since she's in her last semester and had just a week or so to turn in her yearbook photo!  We were able to easily accommodate each other's schedules since she has a chunk of time in the middle of the day with no classes.  It was COLD the day of her session, so I chose a few places where I knew we could duck in and out of the cold as needed, but still have some awesome light and variety -- thank goodness the sun was shining!!  We started out at a parking garage, then headed to Hammerhead Coffee where we warmed up with some hot chocolate and hot tea.  After that we ventured to the downtown Champaign area for the "city feel" and then finished up at the mall so we had some skylights and bright white walls to compliment her purple Judah cheerleading uniform!

I think it's always fun to see the progression from the beginning of the session to the end.  I don't know if you can see, but I definitely see Aniyah loosening up and relaxing a bit in front of my camera as the session goes on.  That's when we start to see real, genuine smiles and true personalities.  I loved this session and wish you the best with your future endeavors, Aniyah!
