Senior Session at the Speedway

high school senior playing drums

Buddy chose to have his senior session at the Wayne County Speedway and it was so much fun! Senior photos where you “work” if that is what you want to call it, but you love it, is never a something to second guess in my book.

Let’s go back a little bit. I have had the pleasure to watch this guy grow up over the past 12 years at church. Most importantly, I was thrilled a few years ago when his Mama grabbed me to tell me to be ready to do Buddy’s senior photos. Ummm, well yes!!!

We had such a great time planning the session to fit Buddy and his interests. This senior session at The Wayne County Speedway was followed by going to a unique location I have access to with his drums to get a different look with his drums. Also, Buddy’s Mom had a vision of using smoke bombs, we improvised a little, but it turned out perfect!

We’ve spent hours on a search for an ice cream machine for my mom. At Christmas, my Mom and I always enjoyed finding the best gift for my Dad. She let me drive to BELDEN Village at Christmas right after I got my temps. We still tell stories about that one!”
