Box Cars, Grain Mills, and the Historic Chelsea Depot
I love photographing high school senior photography. Not only do we create lifetime memories captured as art for mom's wall, we have an amazing time doing it. I work with each senior to pick locations that match their style and bring out the best of who they are.
When it comes to high school senior photography, I love photographing personality and passion. Causal and relaxed portraits can be just as incredible as dressed up and styled portraits. As this senior shows us, you can even do both - as long as it's you.
This senior was a complete joy to photograph. He loves all things trains, so of course, we went to the Chelsea depot. I loved all of the train trivia he shared with me. I learned about the Chelsea Depot, and I found out which parts of the depot are still original. I loved the way he shared memories of spending time with his dad working on model trains and researching historic railroads across the county.
We lucked out and the Chelsea grain mill had boxcars sitting out front the day of his session. I remember driving out with my fingers crossed that the a boxcar would be on the side tracks. I knew it would make the perfect background.
When we arrived, the grain was filling one of the boxcars and there was dust everywhere! We had planned to photograph on both sides of the grain mill, but the dust cloud convinced us to spend our time on the least dusty side of the mill.
To this graduate, I wish you all of the best. My life's journey take you to incredible places including some of the most historic and beautiful railroad stations in the world. Congratulations on your graduation.
(Please note, for safety reasons we were not on the train tracks. These box cars pulled up on a stretch of side tracks that runs up to the grain mill and no further. It created a safe, accessible place to photograph train cars.)
