James | Senior Guys | Sycamore High School Senior Photographer

Just because a senior is a great athlete and wants to include their sports uniforms, they don’t always have to be “on the field” to do so! For many of my athletic seniors, their uniforms are a part of them, and a special part of their high school journey. I love incorporating them in unique and creative ways. For James, a Spartan’s baseball player, we added in his uniform but kept an outdoor, woodsy location instead of the typical playing field. He is a senior at Sycamore High School, where he also plays basketball. He also earned a spot on a baseball team for college, where he will get to continue his sports career.

This picturesque spot is actually on some land owned by his family, in a wooded area on the outskirts of town. I did his sister McKenna’s senior photos as well, and his mom wanted to include some of the same locations for a cohesive look. With James signing to play in college in the Fall, both kids will have gone on to play in college while earning their degrees, which is a huge accomplishment. I’m so in awe of their wonderful, involved parents; they have raised amazing kids who are polite, fun, athletic, and smart.

Although my spring shoots are filling up quickly, I plan to open just a few more slots in the spring! Do you want to be among the first to know when those become available? You’ll need to sign up for my email list (make sure you scroll all the way down to find the opt-in, and you’ll also get to see the sweet photo of James and his mom!) to make sure that you can snag one of those! I will also be releasing my cap & gown session dates soon, which often book out very quickly. Don’t miss any of these important dates!
