Celebrating Barit’s Senior Year

What a strange and wonderful year it has been. Our high school seniors are finishing out their education differently than expected, yet they are finishing. Congratulations to them all!!!

My biggest congratulations this year is to my nephew, Barit, who is completing his high school year through Pierce College. What a fantastic achievement! Barit is a great kid! We had an awesome time capturing one of his favorite activities for his senior photo session…rock climbing! Barit climbs regularly at Edgeworks climbing in Tacoma. Unfortunately, with our state mandated shutdown, Edgeworks is not open, so we did the next best thing…the Sprinker climbing wall. Barit showed me all he had with hangs and climbs and holds and all…it was pretty spectacular! We also went up to High Voltage Records in North Tacoma (also closed), a favorite hang out for Barit and his friends. We did get a few shots from the outside there. Business windows were boarded up, but have been painted with beautiful murals, so that was a nice surprise:)

All in all, we had a great time together. Barit is a fun and interesting conversationalist. We talked politics (good thing we’re on the same side), religion, and Covid crisis. It was a good day!

Congratulations, Barit! You did good!:)

Gorgeous Heather

Happy Saturday, everyone! It’s almost summer, and the weather is finally here!! Wow! What a great spring we are having! Amazing days that have given me wonderful photographic opportunities for my seniors.

This is Heather. She is the 2nd graduate from this family. I shot her brother’s senior photos a few years ago (check out Bryan’s blog https://chrismckennaphotography.com/?s=bryan ) and was thrilled when their mom asked me back again to document Heather’s senior year.

We met up at a new venue for me in Edgewood: the Nelson Nature Park. Other than the excessive pollen- UGH!-it was a terrific place for photos. Both Heather and I are bothered by the spring allergy season, but I give her credit for toughing it out:) What a wonderful young lady! I had an awesome time with her and enjoyed hearing about her future. She has so much ahead of her.

Congratulations on your graduation, Heather! I wish you all the best for your college years. Have an amazing time!

Afternoon with Anna

Last weekend was, I think, our last really nice weekend of the year (weather wise). I was blessed to have a terrific senior session with Anna, who chose to meet me at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. This has been a popular location this senior season, and for good reason. There are so many great places to photograph at the refuge. The barns are a favorite for my “girls”. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Anna. As you will see, she is a beautiful young lady, with loads of life and personality. She was so much fun, and willing to try all sorts of poses…my favorite type of model:) Thank you, Anna, for such a lovely and enjoyable afternoon. Blessings on your future.

Mark – Puyallup High School Class of 2012

Wow! What a fun and energetic senior photo shoot I had with mark! For an early spring day, we were blessed with the perfect overcast, but bright weather that photographers long for.  Mark is a great guy who loves music, specifically Rush, as you will surely notice from his choice of rocker T-shirts.  He is a gifted bass player and shows off his beautiful Rickenbacker.  I love photographing teens! They have such an introspective impression of themselves, and all they want to do is express it.  Capturing their youthful, yet sometimes quirky personalities is what I enjoy most.  And with Mark, his cute “smirk” was my favorite expression. Thanks, Mark, fr a great day and your willing attitude.  This is why I love my job:)
