When you meet a high school senior as genuine as Bethany you are really taken back. Her mature personality and good natured sense of humor are one of a kind, I knew working with her was going to be special and I was eager to catch her natural beauty at any location she wanted.
When deciding where she wanted to have her senior photo shoot take place, she couldn’t decide, but when I asked her about her summer events she was beaming ear to ear about the camp that she has been attending for years. This camp is Shoshone Base Camp, a sister camp of Lutherhaven, and is a special place to a lot of youth in the Spokane area and without a doubt it is a special place to Bethany. As she talked about her experiences there I could only focus on one thing, this is where we had to do her shoot. The place is gorgeous and unique, giving any photographer a perfect setting for a senior session and I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to capture Bethany’s last year there.
The natural landscape takes your breathe away the minute you arrive to the camp grounds which are cut in around the large evergreens, the smooth running river, and the hidden trails. The perfectly constructed log cabins are placed precisely and give the kids a great place to hang out and share memories, which is just one of the spots we stopped snap Bethany in her summer element. Bethany’s beautiful blond hair and soft blue eyes glowed all day long among the beauty around her, giving us perfect shot after perfect shot.
I hope to go back to this fabulous spot and enjoy it maybe a fraction of the amount that high school senior Bethany has over the years. It was my pleasure to work with Bethany and I wish her luck as she walks down the many roads into her future.
