Senior Session | Calumet County Fairgrounds | Chilton, WI
Every year I get a question from a parent that sounds something like “my son doesn’t really want to have his photos taken but I want a nice picture, can you help?” My answer is always YES! Because when you let kids do what they love at their session, and you make it more about them/their interests than anything else it suddenly feels less boring to them. Noah is living proof that a guy’s session is just as fun as you make it to be! Honestly when you’re riding around on a 4-wheeler or stopping at your favorite childhood spots, it’s hard NOT to enjoy yourself. His Chilton senior session was planned with all of his favorite things in mind.
For the record, Noah’s mom didn’t have this question. He was actually all in from the beginning when he applied to be one of this year’s senior spokesmodels! Noah is an outgoing senior who is largely involved in his school. He is a member of NHS, Sources of Strength, FBLA and the Student Council. He also makes time for band practice, cross country, basketball, and track! When he’s not busy with all of those extra curricular activites he enjoys spending time outdoors- including on his 4-wheeler!
Since Noah and his family spent a lot of time at the fairgrounds growing up, we decided that would be the perfect spot for him to ride his 4-wheeler for his session. The way the light came through the trees made me so excited, and his entire family was there to join in the fun which I always find to be so sweet. It was a pretty dry night, so we even managed to kick up a little dust in his action shots which everyone agreed was SO cool!
After wrapping up at the fairgrounds we made a very quick pitstop at the brand new track at Chilton High School to showcase his love for track and CC. Admittedly I was a little jealous of how cool their new athletic center is! He’s so lucky that his senior year of Friday night light memories will be made there!
Our final destination of the evening was an old bridge near his childhood home. Again, a place that was sentimental to he and his family since they had spent so much time there growing up. Just a few years ago we had been there for his older sister’s senior session! As that same sister helped him fix his hair and pick out his final outfit, I turned to their mom and watched her enjoy that brief moment between her two babies. Short, and sweet, but it meant a lot I’m sure.
One of the coolest parts about the Senior Spokesmodel team is that we get multiple opportunities throughout the year to connect. And the seniors grow so much in between each of those meetings. Even looking at his photos from our kickoff in May, to now, I feel like he’s already matured and grown more into himself.
Thank you Noah and family for having me back at Chilton for such a fun senior session!
