"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

Parking Lots, College, and Views in Newport Beach » Orange County Senior Photographer

Orange County Senior Session | Orange County Senior Photographer | Newport Beach Senior Photographer | Eva Lempert Photography

A senior in high school…I couldn’t believe it.  I have been taking photos of this kid for 12 years, we first met when he was 7 years old.  So when we talked about senior photos, it was such an odd conversation to have.  “I want to do something different…but simple, but different…” as described by an at the time 19-year-old.  Hmmmm, well I’m not exactly sure what that meant so when he told me to meet him at a parking lot, I was totally up for it.  Strangely, I have taken portraits on top of a parking garage before and it was awesome.  So when he told me that’s what he wanted to do, I knew exactly how this session was going go turn out.

One of the biggest reasons why I love being a photographer is because he now as 12 years of history in images to look back on, the story of his life.  And it’s been pretty cool to watch this kid grow up.  It doesn’t make me feel young…it makes me realize how long I’ve been in this business and it makes me realize how quickly time does fly…but it also makes me feel grateful that I get to play a part in his story.  XO
