Interview with Jordon Martin - Seaman High - Class of 2019 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

I had a great time with Jordon. The one thing I remember about his shoot is how fast we were able to get so much variety with him. He smiled so good right from the get go. He was a great model and genuinely seemed into the session, which made for a good time! Most sessions we shoot at sunset or in the late afternoon, with him, we did late morning and we were able to get some amazing natural reflective light that gave us the best soft light I could have asked for. Photographically, I was really excited about the session. Jordon was really nice, really laid back and seemed very genuine. I enjoyed meeting him and feel glad to know him. I think these images really show his personality well! These are a few of our favorites. Hope you enjoy! T.H. Peterson:  What do you like most about going to Seaman high? Jordon:  The relationships I have with students & teachers.   T.H. P.:  Any big plans for the summer? Jordon:  I don’t really have any big plans, just working &

Interview with Andrew Brewer - Seaman High - Class of 2019 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

Andrew is a one of a kind dude. Photographing him was super fun and I especially loved that we made his sousaphone such an important aspect of the session. When I was in high school, I played the sousaphone, among several others that Andrew had. So it brought back lots of awesome memories for me. It was a beautiful afternoon, couldn't have asked for better! And something else I especially loved about Andrew is how funny he was, how good of a sense of humor he had. We shared lots of laughs and great moments!! Here's some highlights from his session and make sure to check out his slideshow. It rocks! T.H. Peterson:  Best thing about going to Seaman high school? Andrew:  The people at seaman and the pride and sprit all the students have for there school. T.H. P.:  How many different instruments do you play? Which one is  your favorite? And why Andrew:  I can play 8 different instruments but my favorite one is the sousaphone because it's loud and proud.

Interview with Madison Smitha - Lyndon High - Class of 2019 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

 Before I begin, make sure you read Madison's answers. I love them. You can see how funny and interesting Madison is. Great personality. I loved shooting Madison's session. I was very concerned about the rain but it ended up being great. Yes we got dramatic skies and even a couple sprinkles but the rain did not mess up our shoot!! To be honest, the heavy over cast skies created some beautiful soft lighting. Madison had great outfits and a beautiful smile, although she certainly had a great serious look too. I loved the property we shot on. Overall, her session was a blast. I'm super excited with how her images turned out. Thanks for checking out Madison's session! Hope you enjoy! T.H. Peterson:  What do you like most about going to Lyndon high? Madison:  I love that the classes are so small that you get to know every person and every teacher so well. T.H. P.:  What are your plans after high school? Madison:  I plan to go to K-State and study Animal Science.
