Senior year: It’s the long-awaited close of an educational journey and the start of a grand new adventure.  Seniors work long and hard to get to this capstone year. Don’t you think they deserve the best senior boy photographer Fort Wayne, Indiana has to offer?

Thankfully, a Senior Portrait session can provide heirloom quality photography that captures your high school career and interests. While it’s true senior girls are more “into it” than their senior boy counterparts, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a terrific experience and result. At Kristine Logan Photography we are all about celebrating each senior boy and seniors girl’s unique personality and interests. Our goal is to create a gallery of portraits that are perfectly suited to the individual.

Meet Concordia senior, Max

Max Gleave is a senior boy at Concordia Lutheran High School.  Together we designed a collection of imagery that celebrated his love of being at the lake, and his football and baseball achievements.  We captured him in both our studio and several outdoor locations. We also paired up clothing options that would go well for each set-up and location. Our priority is to capture the senior’s goals for the shoot and to make everything as simple and easy on the actual shooting day. 

Above all, I have also learned is that when Mom is happy, everyone is happy!  Max’s Mom, Amanda, is a repeat client at Kristine Logan Photography and she knew Kristine was the best senior boy photographer to continue the tradition. Together, we came up with some special formal photos in his classic blue suit.

Our Portrait Process

At Kristine Logan Photography, every senior session begins with a consult. This is where we map out all of the possible locations, talk about clothing option, hobbies, and interests.  And as a special treat, all seniors can also include a special friend or loved-one in a set-up at no extra cost.

Here in Fort Wayne, Indiana, girls take their high school senior pictures seriously and so do I! I started my career with photographing high school seniors and they remain a favorite genre today. Here is a sneak peek at a very special shoot.

High School Senior Pictures for Girls

Eden wanted the best of both worlds for her senior pictures. To accomplish that, she wanted images captured in in both the summer and winter months.  We started planning in the fall and had to work around all kinds of “crazy” in her senior schedule.  We waited for snow, but then finally pulled the trigger in February after what was a rather snowless, but cold winter.  

Eden’s Winter Shoot

Our goal for the winter shoot was to capture some Vanity Fair and old Hollywood inspired glamour in some of her favorite dresses in the studio.  I’m in heaven when my clients share my love of these two special genres.  Doesn’t everyone dream of being in the pages of a fashion magazine?  I know I do!! We started with hair and make-up by two members of my glamour squad. Her hair was done by Julia Soto of Stoney Creek Hair Designs, and make-up was done by the talented Julie Kroll of JM Artistry.

When we headed outside, it was a frosty, cold afternoon with a hint of flurries in the air.  Certainly it was nothing to get excited about and there was no accumulation on the ground. I told her not to worry, I would investigate how to create that perfect snowy background in post-production and turn her images into the winter wonderland we both wanted to photograph in. Don’t you think we achieved that magical look?

The Summer Shoot

Our second session happened in June, when the weather was just starting to warm-up.  We took some traditional senior photos in downtown Fort Wayne, including some cap and gown photos to commemorate her upcoming graduation.  Although not all her pictures are featured here, we also captured images highlighting the pandemic and the on-going protests that were a hallmark of 2020.

To finish our salute to senior year, we went to a beautiful country side location where one of her best friends lived.  There we found tall grass and a wonderful pond to wade in.  Ever so slowly she started to walk into the water, and we took pictures ever step of the way.  Finally she got completely wet, just as the sun was starting to fade into the horizon.  It really was a magical moment and I believe her pictures are reflective of it as well.

Now that Eden has safely transitioned to college in sunny and warm Arizona, these images will be a treasured remembrance for her family while she is away.  Smart, savvy, beautiful, and a terrific human being, Eden is poised for all the success she has worked so hard to achieve.  Like her mother, I believe capturing the senior experience is as much for the family as it is for the student.  Her album is a treasure of 63 stunning senior pictures I am proud to have created.

I would love to create something equally magical with all of your hopes and dreams in mind.  Here are some additional examples from recent senior sessions at Kristine Logan Photography. Your Fort Wayne senior pictures are just a phone call away. Let’s start planning your senior experience today!

As a young girl, I dreamed of going to the Olympics as a track star.  I figured it would have to be in the 100 yard dash because I just wasn’t fast beyond that.  I tell ya, in grade school I had a mean kick in those last 30 yards.

But as I ran track in high school, I realized I really didn’t like to run THAT much.  100 yards was fine but 200 yards was a killer. So imagine what I thought of the workouts required to run the sprints?  The proof was in the pudding when I joined the golf team the following year. It’s safe to say, I was better suited to the amount of running golf required.

Naturally, I am super excited to have a full fledged track star as one of my 2014 Seniors.  Let me introduce you to, Symone Black, a kind-hearted, Christian young woman with a Godly gift for running and jumping hurdles about the same size as she is.

Symone was already a standout athlete when she joined the Concordia Lutheran High School Track team.  She ended her career at Concordia in 2014 with two State Championship titles (110m & 300m hurdles) and a whole mess of medals along the way.  Those hard earned titles were already on top of an Indiana State title her junior year, making her a repeat Gold Medalist in the 300m hurdles.  Symone also amassed national attention and awards, in addition to earning a full track scholarship to Purdue University last fall.

Now that Symone was in the “big leagues,” I had to wonder how this little fish would do in the Big Ten Pond?  Well, she had a stellar indoor season and capped things off with a 2nd place finish in the 400m dash at the Big Ten Indoor Championships.  Adding to the excitement, she shattered the school record and became the first Boilermaker to run a sub 54 second 400m indoors. It was certainly fitting to read she was later named Freshman of the Year for all of the Big Ten.

This brings us to the end of the 2015 outdoor season.  Just last week at the Big Ten Championship in East Lansing, Symone pulled out a personal best (by 1.25 seconds) in the finals of the 400m hurdles. Coming off the last hurdle in second place, she grinded out a victory over Ohio State’s Alexis Franklin.  I’m guessing her kick in the final 30m was more impressive than mine, as she shattered Purdue’s school record and posted a new personal best of 56.76. A bronze medal that same day, with her 4x400m relay team, is just more icing on her Big Ten cake.

Symone is off to the NCAA Regional Meet in Jacksonville, Florida next week and is a strong candidate to be named Big Ten Freshman of the Year for the Outdoor Season.  At 19, her personal best ranks 9th in the country and is just 4 seconds off the World Record. I know, I checked. For a “wan-na-bee” Olympian, such as myself, this is a dream.  For a “prob-a-bly” Olympian like Symone, this is real.

Godspeed at the NCAA Regionals, Symone.  You won’t need it…because you’ve already found it.
