Nathan’s senior session was taken on one of the nicest winter days so far this year. The snow was still on the ground, but the weather wasn’t super chilly and it was not a windy day. He and his family were super sweet and could not wait for his pictures, and Nate is seriously a natural at posing. I don’t think there was any point where I needed to repose him, plus his laid back personality made him super easy to work with!
To start off the session, we did something a little different than what I am used to. Nathan has been a boxer for a few years now, so capturing that side of his life was super important to him. I do not do a lot of sports photography, and it has a much different look than my usual, but I am always up for a challenge and trying something new! I think they turned out super cool.
After his boxing shots, we headed to downtown Struthers to get a different look. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t taken more pictures down here since I grew up on this side of town. It has so many great spots and so much personality!
Selah, a restaurant in Struthers, was kind enough to let Nathan change and let us use the side of their building for pictures. Not to mention it smelled AMAZING even outside (I totally grabbed a menu so I could come back another time and try the food). I couldn’t get enough of how cute it was with twinkly lights hung above the alley with the table and chairs out for dinner outside when it warms up. It reminded me of the spaghetti scene in Lady and the Tramp.
The train tracks next to the restaurant were pretty perfect too. It was nice because the traffic was not too busy, and the backdrop was gorgeous!
I think out of all the pictures we took, this one is my favorite. There is something about the light, and the colors of Nathan’s outfit with the backdrop that make it such a good shot of him.
Ashley (my assistant on this shoot) and I had such a good time with Nathan and his family for his session, and I am super proud of how his pictures turned out! I hope I get to work with this sweet family in the future!
