Sunnyside Senior Portraits: John

Between Allan and I, we share 27 nieces and nephews. Being an aunt to these guys is by far, one of my favorite things in life! Especially since moving to Spokane, away from our families, I covet and extra cherish the time we have together. This past weekend, we had multiple family events happening...one of those being our nephew, John graduating from high school!!!  
 
It was so fun getting to see him and his fellow classmates march to sounds of Pomp and Circumstance and officially receive their diplomas from Sunnyside Christian High School!!! John is the first of his six other siblings to graduate, and let's just say he is setting the bar high for his brothers and sisters. He graduated in the top 10% of all Washington High School graduates, and scored not one...not two, but THREE scholarships towards his college education! Next year, John will be heading to Dordt University in Iowa where he plans to study Mechanical Engineering or Finance. So rad.  
 
I am an extra excited and proud Tante (aunt) to share a few of his senior portraits with you today!


A few weeks back while Allan and I were in his hometown of Sunnyside for Easter weekend, I spent the afternoon with John around their family's farm and took his senior pictures!


I had such a blast with him, and loved getting to capture this exciting time in his life!


A few of my faves!


The weather was a bit overcast but ended up giving us the best blue skies and diffused light!


I mean...




Lovelovelove this pops of color and peek of sun rays in this one!








John was in the middle of his soccer season and showed me a few skills! Love these!


Just before the sunset, we headed up to the hills to capture Sunnyside as the backdrop....


I'll just say, we had some unexpected visitors come to the shoot (please refer to background)


I'll end wit this one...so excited for all that's in store for you at Dordt! We will be praying for you and cheering you on over here as you kick butt in college!
