Set the scene: Shannon’s High School Football Field on a bright May morning
As the sun rose over the bleachers of this Central New Jersey high school, a new chapter began for Shannon, a remarkable high school graduate and a talented field hockey and track athlete. Having known Shannon since her days as a little baton twirler, witnessing and capturing her graduation was not just a session for me but a celebration of her growth and accomplishments. Our sunrise photo session started on the familiar grounds of Shannon’s high school, where the memories of her athletic achievements and academic journey were as vivid as the morning sun. Donning her varsity jacket, Shannon’s spirit and love for her sports – field hockey and track – shone brightly.
After capturing the essence of her high school years, we ventured to Thompson Park in Lincroft, NJ. Here, Shannon’s vibrant personality and hopes for the future were the stars of the session. Her excitement for her next adventure at Stockton University, where she plans to major in elementary education, added a layer of anticipation and joy to every shot.
Shannon’s request was simple yet profound – to capture her true self, the fun and the seriousness of stepping into a new phase of life. As she transitions from high school to college, from living at home to setting off on her own, these photographs are a tribute to her journey and a surprise gift for her parents, capturing the bittersweet essence of this milestone.
