I (Kelley) don’t know a whole lot about golf, but while Josh and I were shooting Connor’s senior session, I began to consider adding golf into my regular fitness routine.
If golfing means hanging out with wonderful people like Connor and his family in a beautiful place like The Country Club at DC Ranch, how could it ever be anything but amazing?
For real, this place is drop dead gorgeous! What a perfect backdrop for a senior session.
Our location wasn’t the only awesome part of this shoot, we also had the pleasure of working with one of the most down-to-Earth, well-spoken, and fun high school seniors Josh and I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Soon after meeting up with Connor, he and his lovely mom, Ashley, showed us around the club.
We spent some time snapping shots of Connor near the courtyard area and quickly found that he’s an absolute natural in front of the camera.
Even as his friends and family walked by, poking fun at him to get him to lose his composure and crack a smile, he remained calm and casual.
…Okay, okay, maybe they did break him down once or twice
For the second half of the session, we moved on to the golf course.
After playing golf on this course for years, Connor seems to know each and every hole like the back of his hand.
We jumped in a couple of golf carts, and Connor showed us the very best spots on the course.
Between the views, the light, the amazingly perfect cloud cover we had that day, and of course the incredibly easy-going and natural Connor as our model, Josh and I were in photographer heaven.
We hung out way past our usual “pack up and go home” time, breaking out our camera flashes and having some extra fun creating a few epic sunset shots.
Connor, thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to get to know you and your wonderful family. Thank you for showing us around your stomping grounds. And finally, thank you for making our jobs feel less like work and a whole lot more like fun!
With your motivation and steadfastness, we know you’re going to do great in your college career!
