Central High School Class of 2017 | Reilly

They are graduating faster than I can produce the blog posts!  I couldn't forget Miss Reilly who walked with Central High School's Class of 2017 yesterday morning!  I've said it before but I'll say it again, I am so lucky to get to work with such a great group of Seniors year after year.  Reilly has really been one of my favorites this season because she is such a hard worker and an inspiration to her peers.  She has already turned her tassel and tossed her cap in the air and this fall she is headed to Colorado Mesa University to study Psychology.  She is excited for her college adventures but she is going to miss her friends and the nights spent in the student section at the volleyball and basketball games!  She even admits that she will miss the teachers that she grew close to during her 4 years of high school.  Awwwww, Reilly girl, you are such a sweetheart!  I can't wait to see and hear about all the fun you are going to have at CMU!

Congratulations!!

Central High School | Briana

I'm not sure if she tossed that beautifully decorated hat into the air but this girl graduated earlier today from Central High School!  Briana is so amazing!  Seriously, I can't think of a better word to describe her!  I have gotten to know Briana over the past year as a member of my model team and she is so sweet I wish I could keep her around forever!  She has worked so hard to get where she's going and this fall she is headed to the University of Colorado Boulder to study Chemical Engineering.  She earned a plethora of scholarships to help her fulfill her dreams including the University of Colorado Boulder Outstanding Student Award, the Grand Valley Power Scholarship and the CMU Distinguished scholars award... just to name a few.

When I asked Briana if there was anything I should share with the world on her behalf, she wanted to send a HUGE thank you to her parents for supporting her throughout the years and helping her to become the person she is today!  She even thanked ME, oh my gosh what a doll she is!  Thanks Briana!!  You are the greatest!!

I wish you all the best and I can't wait to follow your journey!

Palisade High School | Destinee

The Class of 2017 from Palisade High School will walk across the stage one last time today and among those turning their tassels is the lovely Destinee.  Destinee has been an awesome member of my street team throughout her senior year and I have really enjoyed getting to know her!  Later this fall she will attend Regis University in Denver, CO to study chemistry and she even received an annual scholarship to do so!

Way to go, girl!  I am so excited for where life's journey will take you and I have no doubts that you will be incredibly successful!!

Congratulations, Destinee!

Class of 2017 Street Team | Now is your time to shine!

Class of 2017 Street Team

Let's get this party started!

I am jumping the gun a bit earlier this year because I'm just too excited to get to work with my next group of high school seniors!  I am also adding quite a few new and exciting features to the CJP Street Team program which I will need the extra time for.  This next season is going to be even more EPIC than years past!

So, the time has come!  I am looking for high school JUNIORS who want to be a part of something exciting and different!  I am looking for YOU!  I NEED YOU on my STREET TEAM!

What does it take to be a Street Team member?  It requires YOU being YOU and sharing your experience with your friends.  Am I asking you to be a salesman for me?  Heck NO!  There are a few easy things you need to do from time to time, but they all come with benefits and rewards and the best part....dun, dun, dun....you can do it all from your phone!  So worth it!

Your Senior year should be an experience.  Being a part of the #cjpstreetteam is an experience that you won't forget!

So let's be awesomesauce, together!

Austin | Grand Junction Senior Photographer | Fruita Monument High School

Meet Austin, a Senior at Fruita Monument High School and a 2015 Graduate.  I had a blast taking Austin's senior portraits as he is a charming, bright and definitely handsome young man!  Curious to know why Austin chose to use a pistol as a prop for some of his images?  Well here's the story...  Austin has been competitively shooting handguns for about 5 years.  The action shooting sport he competes in is called IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association).  Austin found his passion with handguns and has climbed his way up to the master classification and recently took third place at the national championships competing against ALL ADULTS!  He has also recently picked up a sponsorship from Wilson Combat, the best custom 1911 pistol model manufacturer on the planet.  Austin is planning to attend college locally at CMU but if he happens to land a scholarship for shooting at Texas A&M, then he would love to venture south for his degree.

To learn more about the IDPA or Wilson Combat, please visit these links.

Congratulations Austin!

Kale | Grand Junction Colorado Senior Photographer

It's time for round 2 of Kale's Senior Portraits!  Kale is one of my 2015 Senior Model Reps so she was awarded two rounds of senior sessions.  You can see her previous mini session here: Kale | Palisade High Class of 2015

In case you haven't figured it out yet, Kale is a Senior at Palisade High School and she will be graduating this coming spring!  Kale is on the Varsity Cheerleading Squad at Palisade and it seems to be a big part of her life.  She has a great sense of humor and kept me laughing throughout both of her sessions especially when she ventured out into the field of lavender surrounded by thousands of bees!  Kale's favorite color is PINK and when I asked her what her dream job would be, she said either a Special Education Teacher or a Food Tester (because she likes to eat.  A LOT.)  Hmmmm.....

Congratulations Kale!  I wish you the best of luck in this journey called LIFE!

Carrie

Shannon | Grand Junction Colorado Senior Photographer

Meet Shannon, a future graduate of Palisade High School Class of 2015!

I had the pleasure of taking Shannon's senior portraits this year and I can tell you she is the sweetest thing!  Shannon is an outgoing and bright young lady who plays golf for Palisade.  We talked about her plans after she graduates next May and she has settled on CMU to further her education either in accounting or possibly joining their nursing program.  No matter what she ultimately decides, I know this girl is going to do great things in life!

Congratulations Shannon!
