I am so happy to be introducing Andrew to you all! Andrew is a High School Senior who is also taking classes at Mt Hood Community College. I really had a great time getting to know him during our session this Fall!
I love getting to know the seniors that we photograph. I've started sending them some questions to that end and I'm so happy with the results! I learn lots of cool things about their personality and their aspirations for the future which makes me appreciate them even more! I love the challenge of photographing people when they get relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera, then I feel like I really get to capture who they are!
Since Andrew is so good at expressing himself with the written word I am going to share what he wrote to me about himself and his senior year. Hope you all enjoy getting to know Andrew as much as I did. Enjoy some of my favorites from his senior photo session!
"In regards to school, I would say my favorite subjects are math and writing, and that my least favorite subject would be science. I really enjoy the challenge of solving complex math problems. As far as writing goes, I love to be able to tell a story through my writing.
I really like that I have been able to take American Sign Language. I learned a lot about the Deaf culture and have become a better signer.
I am Editor-in-Chief of my college newspaper. I have loved being able to build an amazing team of writers, photographers, graphic designers and people with many more talents. It has been really fun to learn new skills and be able to lead my team to success.
I want to be known for how I have helped my community thrive and in general I hope to be known for being a kind and empathetic person.
My favorite sport to watch is definitely basketball, especially the Portland Trail Blazers. My favorite sport to participate in has to be Snowboarding. I love the peaceful environment that being on the mountain brings, and the challenges of learning new tricks and skills while snowboarding.
If I could move anywhere in the world, I would move to Norway. I love the cold much more than I like the heat, so really anywhere cold would be great. Along with that, I am certainly a city person and would love to move to a bigger city."
