Goldner Walsh & John King Senior Portrait

June 4, 2024

Working with artistic seniors is the absolute best! Working with someone with a vision and a sense of unique aesthetic is something I look forward to in my work. I met Addison last year during our trip to Japan. We spent two weeks together, though not much actual one-on-one time (we were on two separate buses and the accommodations / itineraries were rarely the same). Even then, with her shaved head, I knew she was someone I’d love to photograph. I remember standing in the hotel lobby in Osaka on our last night and wishing I could pull her aside for a head shot. Her mom and I have since become friends and we all share the bond of traveling together, so it was an honor to get to photograph her a year later for senior portraits.

We ventured to Goldner Walsh Garden & Home in Pontiac on a beautiful April day. I photographed for a Neiman Marcus editorial shoot here in 2014 and always wanted to shoot here again. A week later, we headed downtown for Part II at John King Books, another of my favorite spots (the lighting along edges of the building is prime)!
