I was a little nervous Jake and I were going to get stormed on for his Corvallis Montana senior photos – as I was driving in, the clouds hung low and dark in the sky and I saw a few lightning bolts crackle through the air. But somehow we lucked out and the storm clouds stayed away, and even treated us to some pretty dramatic scenes and absolutely lovely light right in Jake’s own back yard.
Jake’s originally from Seattle, but absolutely loves and prefers Montana and has been here for about 3 years now. He also adores his dogs, and we got to photograph Shiloh, his 7-year-old German short hair pointer, and Ranger, his 8-month-old puppy, also a shorthair – but Scout, his Australian cattle dog, opted to stay inside as she was not a huge fan of my big scary cameras (even when I was holding treats for her – oh Scout!).
When Jake’s not hanging out with his dogs, he’s spending time making music. He has played guitar since he was 7 (and played for me as we were making his photos – he’s got talent!), and he’s got dreams of pursuing a business major at Montana State University, with the end goal of possibly opening his own recording studio.
Jake, I had such a nice time meeting you and your dogs! It was great to hear all about your goals, and to get to listen to the bits and pieces you played on your guitar. Here’s to a wonderful remainder of your senior year, and a future full of music! :)
