High School Senior Music Students / Grad Photographer :: Grande Prairie, AB

I recently had an excellent opportunity to take some photos of a class of senior high school students during their music class. I love taking photos of teens and sure would LOVE to do some individual senior photos of these (and other) teens. I posted a few at Facebook in the “photos” tab but wanted to share those plus a few more here. I really should do a promotion to obtain more photo shoots with teens, especially some individual senior photo shoots. As you can see, since we were in the classroom, the background is not ideal but I’m still pleased with the results. I hope you enjoy this small sampling from last week.

And the night shall be filled with music,
And the cares that infest the day
Shall fold their tents like the Arabs
And as silently steal away.

If you are a teen and would like Diane to take photos of you, check out the information on my website and get in touch! I promise to make you look great! If you are a parent of a teen, or any child who plays a musical instrument, let’s capture this time in their life for your entire family to treasure forever.

Wonderful series of images. Especially love the one of the girl with the pink hair. She – herself – is a true work of art. I did a bunch of senior portraits for my daughter and her friends. Tons of fun!! They have such wonderful personalities at that age and stage of life!!!

Great pictures!! You really captured the spirit of the music 🙂 My two favourites are the side view of the violin and the girl with the pink hair — love her individuality 🙂
