Paddle Boarding Senior Photo Shoot at Horsetooth Reservoir | Akinz Boardwear & The Comedy Overlook Paddle Board Company | Fort Collins Senior Photography

Every summer, I let my senior reps choose a shoot theme of their choice. This year, they chose paddle boarding! I was so excited when so many of them jumped on board to be a part of the shoot. As the years go by, doing more creative photography projects is super fulfilling and keeps the creative juices flowing. I haven't worked in water much, but now that I have an underwater housing for my camera, I am so hooked. There may even be an underwater pool shoot coming soon if I have enough time this summer ;).  

Anyway, it was a beautiful day at Horsetooth Reservoir. A little windy up there, but that's the norm. We were able to partner with The Comedy Overlook and Akinz Boardwear. The Comedy Overlook provided paddle boards for our group, so a big thanks to them for letting us take up some of their afternoon!! Akinz Boardwear provided some super cool shirts for all the girls as well -- and since they are very adventure oriented, our theme was a perfect fit for the collaborative photoshoot. 

Several of our girls our swimmers and/or lifeguards, so they loved the opportunity to jump in the water for some photos. They also kept an eye on me to make sure I didn't drown, haha. That first dip into the lake is always a little bit chillier than expected! 

Thanks, ladies for such a fun day! I think all of our shoots need to be like this :).
