Interview with Bailey Adams - Seaman High - Class of 2019 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

Not gonna lie, Bailey's session might be one of my favorite sessions ever. She killed it. We started off with some hip hop dancing and that was incredible. We also took some around downtown and got some beautiful images as the skies were extremely dramatic and a powerful backdrop for her session. We then headed to the Kansas Governor's Mansion and were able to catch the most perfect sunset. Bailey looked amazing in those photos. Those were by far some of my favorites from her session. I had fun photographing Bailey. She was easy to talk to, easy to photograph and had a good connection with the camera. Thrilled with the results. I hope you enjoy checking these out and make sure to read her interview. Great answers!! T.H. Peterson:  Best part about going to Seaman High? Bailey:  The best part about going to Seaman High is getting to opportunity to be on the Vikettes. Being with my team and seeing them during the school day never fails to bring me happiness. 

Interview with Griffin Gaggero - Shawnee Heights Class of 2019 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

 I LOVED shooting Griffin's session. Straight up, he was one of the happiest, smiliest seniors I've ever worked with. He was so easy going and laid back, that photographing him was incredibly fun and easy. I remember my high school years and hanging around Griffin for a couple hours made me wish I would have been more confident and sure of myself like him. I honestly admire that about him and I only was around him for a little while. He's a really great guy and I'm thankful for the opportunity to have photographed him. When I found out he had a long board, I was excited because I knew there was plenty we could do with it and I wanted it to look amazing. After a quick couple hours, we actually ended the shoot at the Kansas Museum and did a few family photos. His family was great and his siblings were just as nice and smiley as him. I sincerely enjoyed my experience with them. In my opinion, you can tell from a set of portraits how the chemistry is between a photographe
