Gavin Ponka’s Rustic, Autumn Senior Portraits in Erie, PA

I was so pleased to meet Gavin Ponka, a charming young man graduating from Cuba-Rushford high school this year. I love photographing senior portraits in Erie PA because graduating from high school is a momentous rite of passage. Who can forget the thrill of first stepping into the adult world? After spending some time with him, I have no doubt that Gavin will transition into his college years with confidence and poise.

The Star of this Senior Portrait Session

The Perfect Locations for Senior Portraits in Erie PA

Frontier Park

We started his portrait session Frontier Park, which provided beautiful scenery for rustic senior portraits. Early autumn sunlight provided handsome lighting for Gavin’s photos. The trees, still lush with foliage, provide that beautiful dappled light on the ground and on the portrait subject. I love how perfectly symbolic this time of year is. As the seasons transition from summer to fall, Gavin is transitioning from one season of his life to another.
