During the discussions with the client, it was decided to have this senior portrait session at Fort Morgan. Kade and his family are from Ohio and Fort Morgan is a place they regularly visit while vacationing down here so it was a natural spot for them to choose. Fort Morgan has some great looking architecture and textures so it is a wonderful area to shoot and gives many options for backgrounds. Kade is an Eagle Scout so wanted to finish the shoot on the beach at sunset wearing a t-shirt that has special meaning to him.
There was one set during the shoot that wasn't planned. Kade brought a suit for the shoot so I picked out an area that I thought would look for the wardrobe choice. When he walked out, his friends commented he looked liked John Wick from the Keanu Reeves movie series. I am a fan of the movie series and realized the area I chose looks similar to a shootout scene in the movie. The movie features bright colored lighting so I put on some colored gels on my lighting and we made an impromptu John Wick style portrait session.
