Teen Passion Portraits – Samantha

Teen Passion Portraits in the studio – Meet Samantha!

Sam is fun, bubbly, social and non-stop action kind of girl but she brings AMAZING focus and dedication to the karate mat. I wanted to show you just a little peek at both sides of her personality….

Sam trains with her Dad at Modern Self Defense and Training Center

Teen sessions can be held at any time of year; either in the studio or on location (or both) and I love to highlight their personalities. Whether they are into dance at 10, karate at 13 and lacrosse at 16 or have had a pair of soccer cleats on since kindergarten, it doesn’t matter, everything is approached with dedication and PASSION! Capture those moments and celebrate them.

CT Senior Photography – Meet Tony!

Planet Photo CT Senior Photography Session – Tony 2KSEVENTEEN

Tony came into the studio a couple of weeks ago with his dance bag in hand. I have known him since elementary school days and he has grown into such a handsome and well rounded young man. He is whip smart and has a great sense of humor but this is just a short introduction to his passion for dance and theater arts.
