This is a group of accomplished athletes, with many of them going to state-qualifying matches and meets. As a collective of athletes, they carried a 92% GPA! Four of the students will be honoring our Country by furthering their futures in the US Military.

I get to know many high school seniors while shooting their senior portraits and if you’ve read any of my other posts, you know this group is my favorite to photograph!
