Interview with Dakota James Thorne - 2017 Santa Fe Trail High Grad - Topeka's Most creative senior portraits - Fun Truckhenge Session

Shooting Dakota's session was a blast. He had some creative ideas he wanted to include in his senior portraits and starting off at the Jayhawk Theater was awesome. I love the vintage appeal of that place and then we headed to Truckhenge out east. It was a great place to spend the rest of the time with Dakota. He loved it and so did his family. We had an amazing time there and ended the shoot with covering Dakota in paint. We laughed a ton, got some crazy good images and had an awesome time. Dakota and his family are super fun and there was never a dull moment. I am thankful that Dakota chose us to capture an important time in his life like his senior photos. It was truly a blast. Here's a few of his favorite images from the shoot and also included is a fun interview with the one and only Dakota! Enjoy!
