Before we got to the session, the car was absolutely what we were most excited about! When Diane sent us an email asking about taking senior portraits for her son Max with the family’s 1954 Chevy Bel Air Power Glide, we were so excited! Our response might as well have been “Duh!” Yes!!! A thousand times, yes! But then we got to meet Max, and started getting to know him during our photo shoot.
First, we already knew Max was a stud because he was getting his senior photos with a 1954 Chevy! We also found out Max also has his very own 1954 Chevy truck he intends to restore. The only reason we didn’t take photos with the truck too is because it’s not technically in the “running” category. But we still had a great time getting photos of the Bel Air… oh, and Max too!
Before we ever met Max, he had already established “cool” points in our book. But as we got to know him, we discovered his cool factor runs way deeper than just a classic car. After graduation in May, Max plans to attend CSU and pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is an intelligent, well-spoken young man who loves cars, trucks, mountains and water sports. I (Colin) wish I had been that cool at 18! Max was so much fun to photograph, and he was basically a natural in front of the camera. We told him at the end of our session to forget mechanical engineering… he had a future in modeling!
Max, thank you for all the fun we had during your session! We think you have a very bright future ahead of you. And, we definitely want to do a follow up shoot when you finish that ’54 Chevy truck!
