Jake is the starting Punter/Kick Holder at Independence High School in Thompson’s Station, TN.  He and his family came in for our Cutting Edge Sportraits– which are only available as part of our Franklin Senior Portrait Experience.

Jake and his boys have not tasted defeat, since November of his Sophomore year!  Yup, that’s 18 wins in a row (as I write this!)!!  They are the defending Tennessee State Football Champions and Max Preps named them the Mid Sized School National Champion.  So far this season, they are 3-0.  INDY NATION has obviously and rightfully rallied around them in a big way!

Jake’s Dad is one of the coaches at the school and he and Jake’s Mom decided to make the majority of his Franklin Senior Portraits about football.  Being a former athlete (baseball player) I was all in!  I completely love working with athletes as I understand the mentality they roll with and the schedule they have to keep.  So, we decided to do a short casual shoot at The Factory in Franklin and then move to the Independence High School Football Stadium for action shots and then come to our Spring Hill Senior Studio for his Sportraits.

All 3 phases of the day were spectacular to say the least!

Note:  As we are publishing this article, Indy High School Football has won an astounding 19 games in a row and faces off with rival Summit High School this Friday Night!

When you think about High School Senior Pictures for athletes, what is the first thing that comes to mind?  Those old grainy “growing-up team photos” where the smallest kid holds the plaque?  A mediocre sports banner that a well-intentioned parent made?  Why can’t a High School Football Player get the same level of photography that a professional or high level college player gets?  Now, you can…

There is nothing like Senior Portraits for guys– as we can combine the Sports and the chilled out and relaxed fashionable portraits in one day!  The Moms and Dads both love it!  By the time we sit down for the Premiere Sales Session- where all of the final images are revealed- there is such an excitement in the air!  It becomes like a celebration of the years of hard work and dedication that it took for the athlete and family to get to this place.  Jake’s shoot was the epitome of this fun and excitement.

PS- What a great Senior Portrait night at Indy Football Field in Thompson’s Station, TN!  The sunset and beautiful cloudy skies were perfect to create these action shots that are one of a kind!
