I was so pleased to meet Gavin Ponka, a charming young man graduating from Cuba-Rushford high school this year. I love photographing senior portraits in Erie PA because graduating from high school is a momentous rite of passage. Who can forget the thrill of first stepping into the adult world? After spending some time with him, I have no doubt that Gavin will transition into his college years with confidence and poise.
The Star of this Senior Portrait Session
Gavin is a young man of many talents. He is currently a football player at his high school and plans to study civil engineering when he enters college. Gavin hopes that he will be attending Penn State University next fall. I have no doubt he’ll be able to handle challenging college courses based on the confidence he showed in his senior portrait session!
The Perfect Locations for Senior Portraits in Erie PA
We started his portrait session Frontier Park, which provided beautiful scenery for rustic senior portraits. Early autumn sunlight provided handsome lighting for Gavin’s photos. The trees, still lush with foliage, provide that beautiful dappled light on the ground and on the portrait subject. I love how perfectly symbolic this time of year is. As the seasons transition from summer to fall, Gavin is transitioning from one season of his life to another.
Lighthouse Trail at Presque Isle
Our next stop for Gavin’s senior portrait session was the picturesque Lighthouse Trail at Presque Isle. Gavin loves the outdoors, so this park was a natural choice for a rustic senior portraits in Erie PA. We were able to follow the trail to find some amazing shots that captured the beauty of the natural surroundings.
